Question about KitchenAid 24 in. KUDI01FLSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
Everything has stopped working. The thermal cutoff mounted on the side of the circuit board is open. I have replaced this cutoff three times in the last 6 months. What is the purpose of the cutoff and what could be causing the problem? could line surges or interruption of power be the problem?
Hi. This is not a thermal cutoff: FUSE-KIT (Fuse Kit and Wire Harness). This is a fuse that blows when there is a contact. Frequent power surges can also cause the fuse blowing. Otherwise the fuse may blow because of a contact that ocurrs occasionally because of vibration. When there is a thermal cutoff, the thermal cutoff will blow because of overheating. In that case ither the thermostate is defective and it is shorted or cutting too late, or the heating element is plugged. In your case the problem is not overheating. Try to understand if the fuse blows because of a power surge, or when the machine is working. As said, fuse can blow because of power surge, because of contact, defective control board or a short in wires almost anywhere in the appliance. Try using a surge protector and see if this can fix the problem. Regards. Ginko.
