Hiya boys and girls.

This isn't steam related BUT very important. Tis the season to be using ones tumble drier an awful lot so please take heed to this.
An engineer friend of mines kitchen went up in smoke a few years back causing considerable damage to the house (it's all been repaired now) because the tumble drier machine hadn't been serviced EVER.

Up to you guys n gals but it only takes half hour or so to whip covers off and give the insides a good ole hoovering out including the heating element unit and circ fan etc. Just done mine and it was boggin with dust inside, this is the nice, dry lovely stuff that goes whoof quicker than a dog waiting for it's dinner..

Most of you here are sharp enough to hold a screwdriver so I'll just mention the one most important thing, please unplug the unit before soddin around with it okay Very Happy

Happy 2010 to you all..

I can add a funny story to that. Some time ago the lady wife complained about a rattle and smell when tumble drier turn on, The drier is stored in my garage. When I examined it the bottom part around the area of the motor was surrounded by a hoard of peanuts from my bird food bag and nestled nicely on the heating element, made out of hair, paper etc was a nice cosy nest containg a fried mouse! They do love tumble driers because of the heat so be warned.
