    Hotpoint Tumble Dryer Has A Burning Smell From The Back

    Hotpoint Tumble Dryer Has A Burning Smell From The Back 26th Feb 06 at 1:05 PM
    Our Hotpoint dryer has started playing up after many years of usage! The drum stops turning and we can smell burning from the back.

    I have opened the back and it seems to be coming from the fan area at the bottom. It seems to stop (the drum included) and then lets out the burning smell. I think this fan is also connected to the motor?

    Does anybody have a clue if this is a cheap repair or even better, can I repair it?

    If not, any ideas where I can get a cheap vented branded dryer from?

    Pls help................
