Wiring a heater element on a hobart am14

While replacing the element I noticed only two wires goto the three loops for the heater element.
the loops are attached by jumpers to complete the circuts.
the left element and one connection on the center elemnt were attached to one wire.
the right element and one connector on the center element were attached to the other wire.
the center element was burd and had lime deposits on it the other two were clean and in great shape.
was the origional element wired wrong??

That connection was probably a little loose and caused that.

This has the contact info for Hobart on it. Given the age of the unit though, you might be out of luck. It is possible that the motor was done correctly and the power issue is somewhere else. There could be an internal fuse or a power transformer that has failed/

Hobart am 14 electric heat does not turn on water temp just drops

Assuming that the machine fill cycle works properly and the float is intact, and the heater contactor doesnt pull in:
possible heater contactor malfunction: check for power to coil
High limit snap thermostat may be tripped or damaged ( needs to be manually reset). located in heater connection cover.
Thermistor probe and or wiring to it may be damaged
main control board may not be functioning properly. check output to heater curcuit

The diagram is inside the control box - on the plastic protector.

If not, let me know more specifically what you have for wires, (should be four small gauge, and three large gauge wires), and I'll help you out.

Heating element replacement

A couple of things to check.look inside the unit,remove the screens and on the right side you should see a float make sure there are no holes in it or look in the box where the heating element is,you should see a round black disk that is above the element (this is the high limit).there is a little button in the middle press it in and see if you hear a click.The way the heat cycle works on this unit is when you first turn the unit on it fills, the water level brings the float up and hits that little metal probe which is a switch, the power goes through that then through the high limit, the power then continues to energize the contactor which then pulls in sending the voltage to the heater.
