You have the white wire on the wrong terminal put it on the same terminal as the red wire on the capacitor and you should be fine,

Stopped working, no smell or anything just stopped working, replaced fuse, what is problem?


First, make sure heater is plugged into a working outlet on at least a 15-amp circuit. To test the outlet, plug a known-working lamp into it and see if you can turn it on.

Then, turn on both switches and turn up themostat (clockwise, as i recall) until you hear a faint click. If it starts working, then you just didn't have it set high enough. If it doesn't work, problem could be bad switches, bad thermostat, bad power cord and/or plug, and/or bad heating element.

Troubleshooting down to the individual component requires use of voltmeter or ohmmeter, and MUST BE DONE WITH THE UNIT UNPLUGGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
First, FOLLOW ALL SAFETY RULES AND SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND COMMON SENSE when working on this unit. If you are in doubt or don't know what these rules and safety precautions are, DO NOT OPEN OR ATTEMPT TO REPAIR THIS UNIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To test each of the above components safely, first UNPLUG THE UNIT FROM THE OUTLET. Then, WITH THE HEATER UNPLUGGED, open up the heater and, with a DVM or other ohmmeter, measure the resistance across each switch, across the thermostat (with contacts closed), and across the heating element. Ohmmeter should read as 0 ohms across switch & thermostat contacts. Resistance of heating element should read less than about 25 ohms. Resistance of each conductor of power cord should read less than about 1 ohm. Replace defective parts ONLY with replacement parts purchased from the manufacturer, and install them and re-assemble the unit per manufacturer's original design and instructions. When finished, verify that there are no short circuits from the power cord to the heater frame, by unplugging the unit, turning on all switches and turning up the thermostat to maximum, and measuring the resistance from both prongs of the power cord touched together to one probe of the ohmmeter, to the frame of the heater. Set the ohmmeter on its highest-resistance range. You should not measure ANY continuity at all, which means resistance should measure infinity. If you measure anything less than infinity, do not use the heater. If you do not understand ALL OF the forgoing instructions or cannot carry out all of them, DO NOT ATTEMPT REPAIR OF THE HEATER!!! Again, SAFETY FIRST!!!! DON"T TAKE CHANCES! THIS UNIT CARRIES LETHAL VOLTAGES INSIDE. IF YOU'RE NOT ABSOLUTELY SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING, DON'T OPEN OR ATTEMPT TO REPAIR THIS UNIT!!!!!! Stay Safe!!!! Stay alive!!!!

And, make sure you unplug this unit when not in use or away from home!
Good luck, and STAY SAFE!!!!

I just replaced the lamp, but the projector won't power up. It has 2 solid red lights


To resolve the issue, follow these steps:
1. Turn off the master power switch, disconnect the power cord, and then wait a short time.
2. Reconnect the power cord, and then turn on the master power switch. 3. If the previous steps don’t resolve the issue, the lamp might be at the end of its life. (double check that you get a good one lamp, and that are installed correctly)
4. If your projector still doesn’t turn on, turn off the master power switch, disconnect the power cord, and then contact your local repair shop for Fix the Board on the prjector

The main fuse is close to where the cord plugs into the machine. You can follow the wires, (black white and green) to an inline fuse or the main power board.

You need a new control board. The relays go out on these. If your unit is less than a year old then you should still be under warranty. Unless you did not send in the warranty card, then the company only warrants the unit for 1 year after the mfg. date. You will need to provide the serial and part number to find out from Amana. The new control boards are much better by the way, and worse come to worse, they are only $130. Please let me know if this has helped in any way.

PTC153B50AM REPLACED POWER CORD ON RECALL


First off, you need to unplug power from the unit before handling anything on it, not just the master switch on the control board. There is still live power being fed to the unit while it is plugged in!
Now, the clicking sound you are hearing is a faulty relay on the control board. You have to replace the control board. The new ones are available from Amana/Goodman Mfg.. You will find, assuming you have more of these, your other units are going to start doing the same thing. It will be the same problem. When they send out the new control board, make sure you program the board. They no longer come pre programmed. It is actually a huge improvement on the older control board upgrades. Hope this helps, I have 140 of these in my hotel, I know them all too well. Let me know if you have any other questions and please rate this as a fix ya.
