Re: TempStar 10 AC

Visit for the schematic on this unit. Coincidentally, your air handler unit should not draw 15.6 amps with an additional 40 for the heater.

How do I get the heating element out

Hello, click this link for your schematic you would have to first deinstall the unit which would mean disconnect the power and the drain line and unscrew any set screws that hold the unit to your cabinet as well. You would then pull the unit out and remove the toe kick plate first before you pull the unit out some are able to reach with smaller hands and disconnect the heater wires. Preferbly I pull the unit out due to big hands and arms issue lol. After you disconnected the heater wires you would then remove clip 2 on the diagram and lift the heater upwards and remove the heater. You would perform the reverse in order to install the new heater. If you have any further questions message me back and please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future. Thanks Rick

Dead, has power going into wiring, but wont do anything no lights or nothing could it be the thermal fuse?

It is almost definitely the thermal fuse. However, you also need to determine why it blew the thermal fuse. This fuse is in place to protect the Control Unit from overheating cause by to high of an amp draw from the motor, the heating element, or a dead short in one of the solenoids.

Replace the thermal fuse, which is located on the Control Unit, behind the Control Panel. After replacing the thermal fuse, start the dishwasher and using an amp meter, test the amp draw of the unit at the supply connection.

During the water fill, you should only see 0.1 to 0.2 amps at the most, and possibly could show 0.0 amps. Once the wash motor turns on, you should see somewhere between 1.2 and 1.8 amps. If the amp draw goes over 2.0 and stays there, you have a bad wash motor.

The best way to check the amp draw of the heater is to put the unit into a field diagnostic mode. To do this, cancel the cycle and wait for the unit to shut down (standby mode). In this order, press "HI TEMP WASH - AIR DRY - HI TEMP WASH - AIR DRY". Air Dry could also be labeled No Heat Dry or something similar. All of the LEDs will light up momentarily and the heat element will be turned on briefly. The amp draw of the heat element can read from 5.5 amps to 7.0 amps. If the amp draw of the heat element goes above 7.5, chances are that your heat element is bad and needs to be replaced.

What would make the dishwasher trip the breaker at different cycles

It could be a few different things. If the breaker is rated close to the amp draw of the unit (e.g. 10 amp breaker and the washer is pulling 9.5 A) , or if there are multiple devices that particular breaker services that is causing a higher amp draw.
Slim chance the motor in the washer could have a bad start capacitor, causing it to draw more amperage when the pump or motor comes on.
Please let me know if this helped.

Wrong voltage rating

Hello. If the unit is rated 460v, 3phase, the only way you can get it to meet your supply of 208v, 3phase, is:
a) have a transformer installed to make 460 from your supply by an electrician, or call your power company and see if 460 could be supplied to your building, but it would only be for that machine.
b) replace the heating elements for the 208v supply, have the pump motor checked to see if it will work on 208v, and a control transformer for the control circuit, as well as all the wiring related to the pump and heaters, as on 208v, they will draw more current than on 460.
so, can it be done? yes. Is the expense worth it? only you can answer that, However I would suggest that you resell that machine, and get the correct one from the start.

Hope that helps, and thank you.
