Hi,

I've been having issued with the tumbler on my dryer lately. It will run for about 10min or so, and then the fuse for the tumble blows in my fuse box?
Any ideal what might be causing this? Tumbler turns easy by hand.

Thanks,

That is most often caused by a problem in the fuse box. A bad connection will generate heat which in turn will blow a fuse or trip a breaker. You should call an electrician to look into it rather than an appliance technician.

If there was a problem in the dryer causing it, it would usually blow a fuse immediately when turned on or as soon as the heating started. If it takes a while to occur, check the fuse box and its electrical connections.
