Question about Panasonic SD-YD250 Bread Maker

Thermostat needs replaced

I'd like to replace the thermostat on our SD-YD250, as the machine cuts on and off like a bad thermostat after having worked fine for quite a while. I've removed the screws, but the control unit on top doesn't want to come off and I'm afraid to force it. What is the trick? Jim

After removing the screws there are two plastic latches hidden on the inside of the plastic ring, with a flat headed screw driver tease these open. located on the inside of the ring and in the centre on both left and right sides.

Have a honeywell thermostat t6575b1003 and my a/c unit wont get below 90, is this a thermostat issue?

Does it feel like 90 where the thermostat is located? If it's not hot in that location, then your thermostat is most likely going bad as far as the temp. goes. If the A/C isn't cutting off, then the thermostat doesn't know what the temp is to cut off. I would suggest replacing it if you have these symptoms. If it feels 90, you need to have the unit A/C unit checked out.

I replaced a bad 325 degree thermal cut-off on my kenmore dryer and 30 minutes it went out again. any suggestions?

Two cut off units will not be bad, and they should reset when cooled. Check your air flow. pull the hose off of the back of the machine, turn it on and form an opinion of the volume and force of the air flow.....Hook everything back up, turn on machine, go outside and verify VERY SIMILAR air volume and force.

If the air is restricted, the system will overheat and the limiters will trip.

If you've checked everything on the troubleshoot list, your machine may need to be replaced. If you want to try it here is what I recommend. Cut your salt amount in half. If it says 2 teaspoons of salt use only one teaspoon if the final loaf has been getting too small and dense. Please let me know if this makes a difference.

My coil was iced up. I defrosted it. While I was in there I took a resistance reading on the defrost heater, it read 35 ohms. I am assuming it is good. Now what controls the heater and how can I check if...

if it's a glass heater you can look at it,if it's all black change it out,i've checked heaters that read good but it still needed to be replaced,like i said pull it out and do a visual look at it,if your machine has a timer,advance the timer by spinning the knob on the timer until you hear a click,when it clicks it's in defrost,if the heater doesn't come on check the defrost thermostat on top of the coil,depending on your machine,some have plug in connectors on the can unplug the thermostat and send power dirrectly to the heater bypassing the thermostat,if the heater comes on then the thermostat is bad,if you don't have the plug in connectors you can cut the wires and bypass the thermostat and see if the heater comes onyou'll have to cut them anyway and then wire nut them together if the thermostat's bad , also you can look at the thermostat,if it's bulgging on the top it's bad,also when you look at the heater,if it's black inside the glass change the heater and the thermostat have to melt out all the ice off the coil before you close up the back wall,if there's a board in your machine there's a white sensor on the top coil,it looks like a bullet, i think the part number is wr55x10025,the older sensors are white but they have a black ring around them near the end of the bullet part,the new sensors are all white, it's a good idea to change that out also.let me know what you find,next time send the model number

Thermal cut-off blows and high limit thermostat is working with vent clean.Replaced thermal cut-off, high limit thermostat and heating element. Still blows thermal cut-off.

Any time a thermal cut off blows, it's because the cycling thermostat is bad. When it's bad, the machine cycles off of the thermal cut off rather than the cycling thermostat allowing the dryer to over heat. The thermal cut off is a re-setting safety and is not made to cycle off of. The thermostat you are looking for looks like a high limit thermostat but it cuts power to the element at a lower temp. Around 158 degrees + or - 25 degrees. It's located close to the high limit. It's a normally closed switch that opens on the rise and it will show closed now but the problem with it is that will not open. Replace it and your problem will be solved. Good luck.

Whirlpoool dryer not heating replaced the thermostat

Dont know the model number you have, but most of your items are located in the back of the unit. You need to make sure you replaced the thermostat, and not just the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse sits on top of the element shield, the thermostat is lower, down where the wires go into the element. You may have changed the thermal fuse, but the thermostat may be out. You will need to check (with an ohm meter) all the componants to find the trouble. If that thermal cut-off has went bad again, change the thermostat with it. Be sure you have very good ventilation all the way through, bad vents will cause problems like this all the time. Let me know if you need parts info. Let me know a model number as well.
