Hi we have had this tumble dryer for around 5 years.
Around a year ago the brown wire in the plug going into the wall socket burnt out so i replaced the whole power cable going to the supressor, 6 months later it packed in, I opended it up to find the supressor leaking so replaced it, today I turned the tumble dryer on to get a little puff of smoke out the top.
I disconnected it and let it discharge for an hour the opend it up to find the brown wire going to the suppressor burnt out, can someone help me find the cause for this and to fix it properly thanks
