If you mean the motor thermistor, it is attached to or build into the motor windings, It should close when the motor cools down, allowing the motor to run again , untill it overheats again.

Hi. We have a baumatic bdw13 built in dishwasher, which is showing error code E6 (thermistor fault). Please could you tell me where the thermistor is located a whether it is easy to replace? Thanks


Hello Kristy!

A thermistor is a temperature sensitive resistor that "opens" (opposite of short) when it reaches a certain temperature and is installed to protect electrical equipment down stream. Why not just a fuse?, you may ask. Good question. A thermistor can tolerate a brief current overload that would blow a fuse, allowing continued operation following transient high-current events like motor start up.

While thermistors sometimes simply decide it's time to join their relatives in thermistor heaven, or wherever dead thermistors go, it usually means there is a steady, excessive load (failing motor?) in the circuit requiring attention.

Where yours is located is a mystery but I would guess it's under the machine near the motor. While I have attacked these issues myself, this sounds like a job for the big kids, especially since thermistors seldom just die.

All the best.

What does a thermistor do


A thermistor senses the temperature by the changing resistance inside it, the name thermistor is short for thermostat/ resistor. As the temperature goes up or down the the resistance inside the thermistor will change in relation to the temperature. This resistance is then used by the electronics to determine what the temperature is in the area where the thermistor is located.

Sounds like the thermistor is bad. Several ways to test.

1: Place the end of the thermistor that is located inside the refrigerator into a glass of slushy water and read the ohms resistance on the plug end which is located on the back of the refrigerator. Google the ohms resistance chart for Dometic thermistors and compare your readings to the chart. If they are not in range then the thermistor is bad and needs to be replaced.

2: Unplug the thermistor from the circuit board. It will be the harness that has only two wires going into a hard plastic plug. Leave it unplugged for 24 hours and check the temp inside the refrigerator. If the temp has dropped then the thermistor is bad and needs to be replaced.

To replace the thermistor remove the thermistor sensor end from the plastic clip. Remove the plastic grommet from the back wall of the refrigerator. Tape the new plug end to the sensor head of the old thermistor and gently guide it through the hole. Once the taped head/plug passes through the hole you may complete pulling the new thermistor through from the back side. Only pull enough to allow you to plug the new thermistor in. Un-tape the plug end from the head and plug the thermistor in to the circuit board. Reinstall the cover over the circuit board and reinstall the access pane. There will be some sealing putty on the old thermistor harness. Remove that and gently press it back into the hole around the new thermistor harness inside the refrigerator and reinstall the plastic grommet. Install the sensor end into the plastic clip and install the plastic clip between the first and second fins. The higher up on the fin the colder the temp will be inside the refrigerator.

Thermostat location ed2fhgx


Your model does not have the old style thermostat. It uses a=> 12002355 Thermistor

Check the thermistor. You can unplug the thermistor from the circuit board located on the back of the refrigerator. It will be the clip in plug located at the left of the board that has two wires in it. Leave it unplugged for 24 hours. If the refrigerator cools down, you have a bad thermistor.

Need to replace the thermistor on my Savin 9945 DPE Copier- how do I access the thermistor unit? Where would it be located on the machine?


replacement of parts of copier is done by a technician, well if you could follow this you can replace the thermistor. open the right side and the front cove, the fuser is located on top of the OPC carriage unit, push the blue level going to the right side while pulling the fuser unit. after removing the fuser unit remove its the top and bottom cover. the two thermistors is located on top near the fixing separation claw beside the two thermal fuses. Good luck!

It will not dry it say the lettrs af


The airflow is restricted as indicated by the AF code. Check for clog lint filter and/or restricted vent system as lint build up in these areas cause airflow restriction and hence the AF code. Another possible reason is a faulty exhaust thermistor located on the blower housing. It is likely a thermistor fault if the lint filter including the vent system are all clear from lint built up but the AF code persists.

Disconnect power then remove the rear access panel and locate the thermistor on the blower housing. Disconnecting the thermistor and running the dryer will cause E1 to appear on the display to indicate an open circuit thermistor and E2 if the thermistor wires are connected together. Replace the thermistor if this is the case. Click on the links below for additional troubleshooting information.

I have a Samsung Gas dryer DV337AGW/XAA. I have an error code that looks like a capital E with the top bar left off and 5. Went through the troubleshooting check list and no fix.


The error code is actually tS which means thermistor short circuit is sensed. The thermistor is located located on the blower housing and it requires the removal of the front panel to access it. Check for clogged lint screen and restricted vent system if the thermistor is found shorted or open then replace it.

Click on the link below on how to remove the front panel and get to the blower housing then locate and replace the thermistor with part number 35001191 or DC32-00007A.

Cycle stops at water heating. Water gets too hot and cycle can only be moved on manually. Is this indicative of a faulty thermostat? Where is the thermostat located


Sounds like it.
It is actually called a thermistor, and is located at the end of the heater element.
Which in turn is located at the rear of the washer drum.To gain access, remove lower rear cover of washer, and you will see the element and thermistor there.
To remove the thermistor, slacken the centrt nut securing element, and withdraw the thermistor.
Fit new thermistor, tighten up nut, and that is it.
If problem persists, then it is going to be a faulty pcb.
