    The parts I ordered (a kit of two almost identical thermostats for a tumble drier) were dispatched within a couple of hours of my placing the order. That was remarkably efficient! Thank you! However, the two thermostats looked identical, with only a green dot on one and a yellow dot on the other to determine which was the low-temp stat and which was the high-temp stat. There was no documentation to explain the significance of the coloured dots, and unlike the old broken stats that I removed, the operating temperature of each thermostat was not stamped on them anywhere. Mark on the help desk also didn't know which was which, although all credit to Mark, he went and investigated and eventually called me back with the relevant (and correct) information. I completed the repair five minutes later. In short, Espares' service and customer help desk were both superb, but why did their supplier not think to either stamp the operating temperature on each stat, or to provide a small piece of paper showing the colour codes used with their dots of paint (e.g. green dot =x degrees, blue dot = y degrees, yellow dot = z degrees, etc)

      Actually there are two, a complete set, in each pack. I ordered two packs after seeing the original answer and end up with four stats! One pack will be going back...

  • Q Do you need to replace element ?? 1 Answer

    Tumble dryer not heating up am about to replace thermostats do you have to replace the element at the same time or is there anyway of testing it ? Water light is staying on even after emptying

      Check the thermostats measure short circuit, if not replace them and reassemble the dryer before switching on. If the dryer is stopped 'when hot' it can trip and stop heating so allow to run the cool down cycle if the dryer has been run for a few minutes.

  • Q Switched off tumble dryer mid cycle by mains switch(by mistake) since then no heat is available the water light is on but the water container is empty is this a thermostat problem or could it be something else 1 Answer

      Yes this is a common problem if the dryer is hot and the air flow is stopped then these thermostats will cut out. If you measure them with a meter they should read short circuit, replace if this is not the case.
