Hi,

Thanks for taking the time to stop by our blog.  If you find one of our reviews or how to articles helpful drop us a line and let us know.  Fisher Paykel dryers have several common issues.  When the dryer stops heating it is more than likely due to a clogged dryer vent.  There is a safety fuse inside fisher paykel dryers that will trip.  When this safety fuse trips the dryer will start run but not heat.  If you and your fisher paykel dryer are in this situation the fuse is resettable.

To gain access to this fuse the top and front of the dryer need to be lifted and removed.  The process is simple and I have provided a link below that is a video that we have made that explains how to open and where the fuse is.

The fuse has a small button on the front that needs to be pushed into to reset.  If you have a volt meter check the heating element and make sure it is not grounded.  On some of these dryers the element will sag and touch.  When this happens the element can stay on and cause a over heat condition.  Check the dryers venting if the element is not grounded out.  We know these dryer very well and can assist you with any fisher paykel dryer repair question you may have.  Post your question in our fisher paykel repair forums using the link below.
