Question about Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer
Ok, my thermostat tripped a couple weeks ago on my Fisher Paykel DEGX1. I reset it and it worked for 4-5 days, then tripped again. I tested the thermostats and all 3 have continuity, both elements are receiving 240V and the Yellow wire element has a resistance of 14ohms and the purple element is registering at 24 ohms (the service manual states the yellow should be between 13-19ohms and the purple between 38-45). I start the dryer, watch the elements start to heat and the only element that starts to get red is the purple element. After 5-10 seconds watching it, the thermostat trips, so I reset it and it will start to heat again and then trip the thermostat 5-10 sec later. I don't know why the yellow one isn't heating at all, it may very well be designed that way that only the purple one heats initially and that the purple one is bad and tripping the thermostat before the other element gets the signal to heat. I don't know how else to test the motor control unit so I'm guess that I should just replace the purple element since it's the only thing that is showing out of the normal range (24 ohms when it should be 38-45). Anyone have any info on what I could be missing? I'd hate to order parts and not have it fix the problem. Thanks in advance.
