Usually, there are 2 or 3 thremal cutouts in these machines (Side by side).

They should be changed together. I'm not sure if THT1001 is a hotpoint part number.

If you're in the UK, then go look at:
http://www.tdspares.co.uk/products.asp?cat=68 where you will get the pair for £8.95

My searches get drowned by UK entries because that's where I am!) If you're in the US, just google "hotpoint tumble thermal cutout" and you'll find loads (Note that proces vary hugely from $10 a pair to about $25!)

Electric dryer won't heat


Thermal overload cutout tripped or is defective and needs replaced. Look for a red reset button near the heater element on the thermal overload. If no reset button, replace the thermal overload cutout. The timer itself could be defective, which will prevent power going to the heater element.

The thermal cutout pops on tank two after it shuts off. It boils then shuts off. It also turns off when taking a shower, producing cold water. I checked the ohm readings on the thermal cutout and the...


Question posted under Bosch tankless.
Question says 'tank'
Brand, model, and type heater unknown.
Elements mean electric.
'Thermal cutout pops when taking shower produces cold water' indicates tankless, since tank-type would maintain some hot water.
No error code might indicate tank-type.
Add a comment with type, brand and model number of heater for possible assistance.

On our AE125, the thermal cut-off is tripping AFTER the water is turned off. The heating element is getting so hot you cannot touch it


The elements are getting over heated then set temperature.You have a defective thermostat. The elements will continue to heat until they reach the set point of the thermostat. Try to lower the temp setting first. If that does not fix it, you'll need to repalce the thermostat, located very near the element, under the screwed cover on the side of the tank.------------- To know how this heater works, read as follows:---

Because electric tankless water heaters have to instantaneously raise the temperature of incoming water to a selected hot water temperature, they require very powerful heating elements. To power the heating elements of this 27,000 Watt model, you will need to upgrade the electrical service you were using for your storage tank water heater. The PowerStar AE125 will require a 240V, 200 Amp service. In addition you will need to install three 40 amp dedicated double pole breakers in your electrical box. In Canada, you will require one 120 Amp breaker.

The PowerStar AE125 electric tankless water heater incorporates a very sensitive flow sensor, and three heating elements. The heat from the electric elements is electronically modulated on the basis of the flow rate of the water entering the water heater, and the temperature rise that the water heater must achieve. Through its electronic modulation system, the AE125 maintains a very precise hot water temperature. As a safety precaution, each of the three heating modules is protected by an electro-mechanical thermal cut-out. This device will cut power to a particular module if the temperature gets too hot.

You've done the required first-step troubleshooting and maintenance.
If thermal cutout keeps tripping, and unit is actually reaching 185, then something is wrong with wiring, temperature sensor, gas valve, or PC board. Or combination of factors.

Although dryer is still turning there is no heat generating to dry the clothes


Either a loose connection to the heater element, or the heater element is faulty.
Most dryers also have a thermal cutout which operates if there is insufficient airflow over (or past) the heater, causing it to exceed a safe thermal rating.

NO HEAT TO DRYER NO COILS APPEAR TO BE BROKEN TO HEATING ELEMENT. ALSO I CAN LOAD DRYER SET THE AMOUNT OF TIME AND CLOSE THE DOOR AND THE DRYER AUTOMATICALLY COMES ON. I DO NOT HAVE TO PUSH START BUTTON....


This problem is usually the result of an overheat causing a thermal cutout to trip. While I don't know this machine specifically, you will probably find that there is a screw on bulge on the back of the machine that covers the fan and heater unit. (Unplug from the mains first!!) remove the panel (Usually about 6-8 screws) and inside you will find a heater element. Near to this you will find at least one thermal cutout, it will be a little metal disc set in plastic, about the size of a penny with 2 wires coming off it. There may be more than one of these, but typically, only one has a tiny hole in the back at the centre. If you push a paper clip or pin into the hole gently, you will hear a click as the metal disc in the cutout pops from a concave to a convex shape and re-sets the cutout.

Reassemble and the problem should be fixed. Now ask yourself why it tripped? Usually because:
  • One or more filters or the condensor were clogged and needed cleaning
  • The inlet or outlet for the airflow were obstructed
Both these things will cause an overheat and the cutout will trip.

These things very seldom fail because of a fault, but if the unit keeps tripping the thermal cutout, the problem may be a real heater fault and you should look to change the heater element or get someone to change it for you if you are unsure.

The machine is probably doing exactly what it is supposed to do and failing safe because of a problem. This problem is usually the result of an overheat causing a thermal cutout to trip.

Hotpoint dryer will not heat


Remove the plate at the back of the machine and the element will be revealed. Above it there are two thermal cutouts.Usually one or the other will be the cause of your problem. Take care when handling the element as they are very fragile these days.

Black & Decker BDCH200C Ceramic Heater


There is a thermal fuse in this heater. A 133 deg. C fuse along with a bimetalic thermal cutout is attached to the top of the ceramic heater housing. This fuse is probably open, and is the most likely cause of your problem. This fuse is riveted in place, and is not easy to change.
Opening the heater case requires a special anti-tamper screwdriver. B&D don't want you inside this unit.
