recall replacement warranty

26
Posted 18th Apr
hello and I thought I would ask,as there telephone lines not open till Monday but basically I have a indeist tumble dryer.

and today I heard a big bang and electrics all went off, wasn't sure what caused it so put it back on, and turned everything back on.

five minutes later everything went off again,tho no bang this time.

so I started slowly putting bit by bit back on.

nothing tripped so all good

till 30 mins I go check to see if clothes dry and now notice tumble dryer blowing cold air so this is what caused it, now Tumblr wasn't full, but had a martial in there what seemed to threeded off and wrap around towel so maybe this caused it but now my heating has gone from tumble dryer .

but the question is, it was replaced by a new model under their recall program so my old dyre in 2015 brought and replace by new one for free due to safety so question is.

is the new model under a year warranty.

and if so, think it could be a while for them to fix.

gonna be a pain when your working and your tumble dryer busted, so does anyone no if I got a year warranty with new model

What "year warranty" are you referring?

What "year warranty" are you referring?


well that's the question, as it is a new replacement,do you get new warranty on that or so
from the following article, it doesn't sound like it, which is very unfair to me as a product should have a manufacturer's 12 months warranty in its own right, whether it is bought new or is given as a replacement. otherwise the consumer could be given one shoddy product after another during the 12 months and then loses the use of the product shortly after that as the product develops a fault again.

although an electrical item comes with a comforting 12 months guarantee from the manufacturer, you would expect it to last more than 12 months in general so it would not be good to have to buy a new one shortly after 12 months.

"Or to put it simply, if you buy a TV guaranteed for a year and it breaks down after five months, the replacement TV would only be guaranteed for seven months."

You implied you had a year warranty from some entity, yet a manufacturer warranty is gesture of goodwill and subject to whatever terms the manufacturer chooses to offer, or not offer. If the appliance has been registered, Indesit generally provide 12m warranty; after that period £120 labour charge applies to each repair up to 10yrs.
The legal guarantee from the merchant commences from day of purchase and is generally not reset by replacement.

A merchant's legal obligations exist for up to 6 years or 5 years in Scotland; a manufacturer's warranty is gesture of goodwill and can be anything from nothing to everything.

99% the element blown or just tripped. Very common. Especial on Indeshite/Poopoint products.

You're lucky that your electrics tripped and it didn't self combust like they normally do.


You might be able to reset it so it works again if you're lucky. Give it a good clean out and don't open the door during it's cycle etc.. Here is an how too video

That is very concerning but not really surprising. Personally I think heat pump dryers are a better option. Not just for the energy saving but they're safer as they don't have elements in them etc..

Anyway pleased you sorted it, Never leave it on unattended etc..

Was worth a try, It will most certainly be the element but yes, give them a call, They'll want £120+ to come out as it'll not have the 12 months warranty etc..

I'm not sure, Espares are a good source but doesn't list your model. Might be better looking on the element for a part number etc..
