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:
The disc of the stat must not be touched.
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.
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.
If your front duct thermostat isn't working it will cause unnecessary stress on this part causing failure.

Qis the green spot the 106 thermostat or the 130 ??1 Answer

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.
