Tumble Dryer Thermostat Kit

If your dryer is blowing cold air then this thermostat kit could save you hundreds of pounds on a new tumble dryer. We get consistent customer feedback on how easy this tumble dryer thermostat kit is to fit so you can feel confident that this is a repair that you can do yourself.

When you order this kit you'll get 2 tumble dryer thermostats.

This kit is a spare part for select Ariston, Creda, Crusader, Electra, Hotpoint, Indesit, Jackson and Proline tumble dryers.

To prevent failure of your tumble dryer thermostats please use the following guidelines:

  1. The disc of the stat must not be touched.
  2. Do not terminate the dryer cycle early. Your dryer needs the last 10 minutes of the cool down cycle to occur in order to clear residue heat in the dryer airflow.  
  3. Blocked airflow will cause the thermostats to fail. Make sure you're not overloading your dryer and regular clean your lint filters after every load and empty the condenser (if you have one) as recommended by the manufacturer.
  4. If your front duct thermostat isn't working it will cause unnecessary stress on this part causing failure.

    The “how to” video on the website made the thermostats ease to access fit. But when carrying out the repair I was unsure which thermostat went where as the lettering and numbers on the replacement thermostats did not match the existing ones. As one of the new thermostats had a green spot on it as did one of the existing thermostats, I just swapped like for like and the drier now works perfectly.

  • Q is the green spot the 106 thermostat or the 130 ?? 1 Answer

    By Dave - 08 January 2014

    • A
      We recommend that both are changed together as this will prevent two of the same type accidently being fitted. The one with the spot we believe is the overheat cut out so will have the higher operating temperature. The other without the spot will be the lower temperature cycling thermostat.

  • Q Order Code 5045381456638 17/12/13 I have a Creda TCR14 tumble drier 1 Answer

    Old thermostats in my Creda are KSD 301 with numbers 105 and 130. They have no colour code dots. The new thermostats in my order received two days ago are marked YELLOW 1488 23-13, and GREEN 1582 23-13. Which of the two new thermostats should replace which of the old ones please ?

      One thermostat is a overheat cut out that will trip and need to be replaced if it overheats and a cycling thermostat that cuts in and out as it reaches and maintains the drying temperature. If you replace both thermostats at the same time you will use one of each type This will ensure your appliance is working correctly and safely.
