    That's the most ridiculous explanation ever.

    I agree, I've had frozen dryers before.

    You can dry them out, or just replace the dryer, they are not that expensive.

    Maybe so but everything is working fine now. I do have a spare dryer so to be safe I'll replace it.

    Maybe they thought with the all that hot air they were spewing it would thaw out the dryer lol

    Yes Rubber becomes very stiff in the cold. Back in the homeland, Saskatchewan, suspension bushings went out regularly. At -40 they could shatter on the older cars. Modern silicone bushings do much better, but the air bags are old school rubber and get very stiff when cold
