Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Need to know what type is the temperature sensor of this oven ? It is measuring 4Mohm at the moment , and i think it is broken. Thermistor , or termogauge is inside , and if it is thermistor - what resistance at 25 degrees ? My e-mail is ropepowersoft@yahoo.com . Thanks !

SOURCE: how do i check the thermistor resistance

Hi gmosher469...
You will need an ohm meter...
After you remove the two wires going to the thermistor then you will put the meter on the ohm scale and check for continuity by touching the two terminals with the meter probes, if you have continuity then the thermistor is good.
Please take time to rate me

SOURCE: What should be the resistance

It should be found on the tech sheet supplied with the dryer. Check that and see. I'm trying to find it.

Thanks,

Mike

That is fault code 41
41. (00101001) Temperature Sensor Fault (Thermistor)
The temperature sensor is measuring temperatures above 110oC. The fault is probably
due to a short circuit in the sensor line. This fault is only applicable in the GW models.
Primary Source: Thermistor.
Action: 1) Check the connection from the thermistor the Motor Control
Module
2) Check the resistance of the thermistor. It should read 12.5k ohms
at 20oC. Replace if faulty.
3) Replace the Motor Control Module.

Intake air temperature sensor on engines


1.2) IAT - Intake Air Temperature sensor

What is it? The intake air temperature sensor is a small electrical device (Thermistor - temperature dependent resistor) that consists of a small bead on a loop of wire held within a plastic safety frame.

Where is it located? Is most often found associated with the MAF (AMM) in the air ducting immediately after the air filter/cleaner box. On cars without a MAF (a manifold pressure sensor - MAP usually takes on the role) the IAT may be sited nearer the throttle opening in the air ducting. It has only two wires that make connection with it. However, when located with the MAF, a combined multi-pin plug will serve both devices.

How does it work? It measures the intake air temperature by simply measuring the resistance in the thermistor bead on the wire. The IAT is most commonly located alongside the MAF. The IAT thermistor sends a signal proportionate to the air temperature (if the usual NTC thermistor the resistance drops with increasing temperature; if PTC type them resistance increases with increasing temperature). With the engine running, fresh air is drawn through the ducting and cools the heated MAF. The temperature of the air, in conjunction with its ability to cool the MAF allows the ECU to determine the mass of air entering the engine and thereby to select the appropriate amount of fuel by adjusting the injection times.

Symptoms of a faulty IAT
Associated OBD2 error codesDTCs: P0110 - P0114; P0127

  • Higher erratic idle speed - If the IAT is at fault the ECU cannot accurately work out the mass of air entering the engine and may use a default value that is inappropriate.
  • Erratic engine - In the absence of signals from the IAT and MAF the ECU takes readings from the TPS and other sensors and this causes a rough running engine.

How to Check? Unplug the device from the duct and check that it is clean. Put a voltmeter across the contacts and measure the resistance due to the ambient air temperature. If you then breathe on it, raising the local air temperature around the probe, you will see the resistance change as a consequence. You are looking for a change in resistance in line with a change of air temperature. If there is infinite resistance, consistent with a broken circuit, or there is no measurable response to change in air temperature then the IAT is faulty.

How to Fix? Replace it

Get an error code of f4 when trying to set temperature


F3 - F4 Open oven temperature sensor (circuit) (over 2700 ohms) or, shorted oven temperature sensor.

Could be a result of:
· contamination on terminals
· pinched wire in oven temperature sensor circuit
· cold solder joint on control

Possible Solutions:
· Disconnect power to range and remove oven temperature sensor connector from control.
· Measure oven temperature sensor resistance at oven temperature sensor connector (take care not to damage terminals in block) - Should read 1100 ohms at room temperature (approx 72 degrees F).
· Measure each oven temperature sensor lead from connector block to ground. If shorted, look for pinched or cut wire in oven temperature sensor circuit.
· Check connector terminals - Look for deformed or corrosion on terminals. Repair or replace. If all above is ok replace control.

Hope helps.

My oven displays error f31. It beeps and when I press clear the beeping stops. But if I try and set the temp it reverts back to f31


The F31 fault code indicates a problem with the oven temperature sensor probe. The temperature probe is secured in the top of the inside back wall of the oven. Unplug the range to disconnect electrical power. Open the oven door and remove the racks. Remove the screws that secure the oven temperature sensor probe in the back wall of the oven. Carefully pull the sensor into the oven until you get to the wire harness disconnect plug. Unplug the sensor probe. Do not let the wire harness **** back through the opening in the back of the oven. Check the resistance of the probe with a volt/ohm meter. At room temperature, you should measure about 1100 ohms of resistance. Since you are getting the F31 fault code, you will not likely measure this resistance. If the resistance is bad, replacing the oven temperature sensor probe .This should fix your problem. You can order this part from the www.appliancehelponline.com If the resistance of the temperature probe is normal (1100 ohms), then I recommend that you access the electronic oven control board in the console (with the range still unplugged ). Remove the upper back panel. Pull the P5 connector on the control board and measure the resistance through the purple wires (pins 12 and 13 as shown below) to check the resistance of the temperature probe through the circuit that connects to the board. If the resistance is drastically different than the 1100 ohms measured at the probe, then the wire harness is bad and will need to be replaced. If you measure the proper resistance through this wiring harness at the control board and the connections are good, then the electronic oven control board will need to be replaced.

My oven keeps beeping F2 and it won't turn off. The top broiler coils are bright red and heat is pouring out of the oven. I have held down the off button, pushed start, pushed bake, anything I can think...


Control senses oven temperature above 615F-630F. shut down the breaker switch asap.

If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.

Hi. This F-3 code is representing a malfunction within the oven temperature sensor. It is open at the moment and unable to transfer data at this time.

You can test by Measuring the oven temperature sensor resistance, should be1100 ohms. If not, replace sensor.

ECT - Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor

The engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor (Figure 27) is a thermistor device in which resistance changes with temperature. The electrical resistance of a thermistor decreases as the temperature increases, and increases as the temperature decreases. The varying resistance affects the voltage drop across the sensor terminals and provides electrical signals to the PCM corresponding to temperature.
Thermistor-type sensors are considered passive sensors. A passive sensor is connected to a voltage divider network so that varying the resistance of the passive sensor causes a variation in total current flow.
Voltage that is dropped across a fixed resistor in a series with the sensor resistor determines the voltage signal at the PCM. This voltage signal is equal to the reference voltage minus the voltage drop across the fixed resistor.
The ECT measures the temperature of the engine coolant. The sensor is threaded into an engine coolant passage. The ECT sensor is similar in construction to the IAT sensor.
