We carry replacement parts, repair parts and accessories for 1 Sci-O-Tech Dryer models
When it comes to commercial dryers, Sci-O-Tech has built a loyal clientele thanks to its reputation for reliability. If your dryer is leaving your clothes damp even after a full cycle, you may be thinking about contacting your repair technician. Before you make that call, try these simple troubleshooting procedures to get your dryer back in shape.
As lint accumulates on the trap during each dryer cycle, the build-up hinders air flow and forces the dryer to work harder to dry your laundry. Before examining other dryer repair parts, remove the trap and peel off the accumulated lint to see that resolves the problem. For best performance, clean the lint trap before every cycle.
An important step in dryer troubleshooting is cleaning the vent tube, which slowly accumulates excess lint over time and prevents the steam from escaping from the dryer. Unhook the tube, and use a vacuum and a damp rag to remove the build-up. Clear out your dryer vent tube at least once a year to avoid a potential fire hazard.
Combining washer loads or drying large loads can lead to excessive drying times. Try splitting up the load into several smaller loads, and see if the dryer's performance improves. Also ensure that the heat setting and other controls are set appropriately.
