UK Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!
The issue is not related to overheating but an over current draw or a short in the wiring. I would start by looking at all connections and wiring, looking for anything loose, melted or discolored. Let me know what you find.
No, that would only cause it not to heat but would still run. Oftentimes, because the heater draws the most current, it can cause excessive draw and trip the fuse when connections become loose or wires melt, etc. I would look closely at that circuit from the heater to the control.
I suspect that as it heats, the current draw goes up due to a poor connection somewhere that is causing resistance. Or, a wire is heating and shorting after it gets hot. Check wiring between heater and control.
Sorry, I did not see that part of your question.
May I please have your complete model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
