Appliance Breakdown: Clothing Dryer Units

Clothing dryer units frequently break down due to overheating. This is often caused by poor air supply and ventilation within the unit. As a result the motor needs to work harder to perform at an optimal level.

How can you prevent this from happening?
Cleaning your dryer vents to prevent clogging will not only improve the performance and life expectancy of your unit, but it can also help prevent a fire. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, 2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year with the leading cause of dryer fires is the failure to clean them.  You may view additional dryer safety tips on the USFA website.
