Checkout the tip for the electric have a problem with something cutting out the current before the element...probably the high limit ...
If you have a gas dryeri have 75 volts ac - 2_bing.gif.
The most common problem with a gas and no heat is the ignitor going bad...

Dometic fridge not working on 240 volts gas ok and 12 volt ok

The AC heater element is most likely open. Replace it and it will restore AC operation.

My electric hot water isnt workin! My unit is 10 years old GE10074 240 volts AC only-45 gallons. 4500 WATTS. The cold water runs fine-NO HOT-what could it be.GE model#:GE38S06AAG Serial#305D10074

Hi LiLo

Is this unit designed to pre heat the water to a given temperature or is it On-Demand. Eg the heater turns on only when a tap is turned on?
Either way, you need to check if AC is getting to the heater by using a multimeter of a Neon Light tester.
Once you find out if it's got AC at the heater then it's a simple matter of following the AC to the actual element.
If the Element shows 240v across the element but does not heat up then the Element is open circuit and will need replacing.
If there is some control mechanism stopping the element from getting 240v then you've found the problem. The Control circuit or temperature sensor.

Good Luck

Should I have power at both elements all the time?

Push circuit breaker fully off and then fully ON
Test for 240 volt across top twp screws on upper thermostat.
If tank was not full of water when breaker was turned on, then upper element burned out.

Yes both elements will test for 120 volt to ground at all times... but it takes 240 volt to heat element

Why does hot plate for pot will not heat-up/mr coffee BVMC-EJX36?

No heat means either the heater element is "Open" or one of the 3 thermostats in Series with the Heater element is open.

you will need a Multimeter to measure... you will also need a phillips screwdriver and a Security torx bit to take the bottom cover off..

From there "CAREFULLY" put your meter on AC volts, and measure across the element... one side of the element has a white wire and the other side is going to one of the in-line thermistors... if you read 120 ish volts, then the element is shot... If it doesnt read anything, then keep one lead on the white wire while you trace back to the next thermistor for 120, then again trace back to the final thermistor... which is thermally connected to the element, that's the final one. If you still have no 120 volt, then the logic circuit is not firing the Relay on the PCB.

I know this because I've serviced one with a bad element... canot find a replacement part so far....

Water is not hot, doesn't last long. Thermostats turn elements on when turned up. Elements show 230 when on.

Lower element can be burned out and still read 230V across screws

1) We know thermostats are working because elements test 230V.
2) We know upper element is working because tank has some hot water.
If upper element is burned out, tank will have no hot water.

3) Here's how to test lower element:

4)Here's how to replace element
Rheem element is 4500Watt bolt-in type

5) Rheem manual says: Heaters furnished with standard 240 volt AC, single phase non-simultaneous wiring, and 4500 watt upper and lower heating elements.

Kenmore dryer runs but no heat. I have ohm checked the heating element, all thermostats and the thermal fuse. All ohm okay. I also checked voltage throughout the circuits from the main block to each...

Did you read ~220 volts AC across the two slanted blades of the power socket? The motor and controls usually run on 115 volts. When the timer is set to dry, press start, and look for ~220 volts at the heater element connections. (Don't let the heater reach full heat if it starts working!) You may have to short the door switch connections to get the unit to run. If you don't read 220 volts at the plug, check the output from each breaker of the dryer pair (should read 115 volts to neutral). Hope this helps!

Will not run only on gas but will not cool

If it works on gas and NOT electricity then the heating element is not getting power or the heating element is open. The heating element is located on the tubing just aft of where the pilot flame is on the bottom of the copper tube. You should check for power to the heating element and with power off perfom a continuity check on the element. I really do not at this time think you have a heating element problem.

There is a 120VAV element a AND a 12VDC element. The chances of both of these failing at the same time is pretty slim.

There is a note in the manual:
If the gas only pushbutton is depressed the
lamp will illuminate green and the refrigerator
will only operate on the LP gas mode, even if q
120 or 12 volts are available.

Another significant change in the third
generation A.E.S. system is how the 12 volt
heating element mode operates. As with the
first and second generation series, the 12 volt
heating element circuit is energized by the
ignition lock terminal. This terminal receives
its DC voltage from a wire that runs from the
run side of the vehicle’s ignition switch to the
refrigerator’s ignition lock terminal. This
allows the 12 volt heating element to be
energized only when the RV is traveling down
the road.
When the ignition lock terminal is energized
by the ignition key, the printed circuit board
must see at least 13.3 volts DC for a period of
40 seconds before the system will activate the
12 volt DC heating element.
If 13.3 volts is not achieved in this time frame,
the electronics will light the LP gas burner and
the refrigerator will operate on the LP gas
LOWER THAN 13.3 V.D.C. =LP Operation

If the battery voltage remains low after the
delay cycle, the automatic controls will light
the refrigerator on the LP gas mode and stay
on the gas mode until the printed circuit board
sees approximately 13.3 volts DC to the
terminal block.

For proper cooling on the AC mode, the AC
voltage to the refrigerator should not vary
more than 10 percent from the voltage rating
on the heating element. Heating elements used
in Dometic refrigerators could have a rated
voltage of 110 volts, 115 volts or 120 volts AC.
Because of this, the power requirements for
each differently rated heating element will
vary. For example, if a heating element is
rated for 100 volts, the acceptable power range
would be between 99 to 121 volts AC. If an
element is rated for 115 volts, the acceptable
power range would be between 103.5 to 126.5
volts AC. If the heater is rated for 120 volts,
the acceptable AC power range would be
between 108 to 132 volts AC.

The unit to operate on either AC or DC must have 13.3 volts to the unit. I think this is where your problem lies in that the battery voltage is less than 13.3 VDC

If all of that checks good just repsond here and I will help you. There is still more that can be checked.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Dometic w/hp installed,has 115ac @12dc thermostatworks sends signal but won't fire

hi! there, as you mention since source was 115 voltwas initialized and thermostat detected was functioning but heater won't fire, check if there's incoming source on your heating element using multitester on voltmeter set up,if there's source 115 volt,check your heating element resistance be sure to switch off your ac before checking resistance of your heater (your tester may damage upon testing resistance when ac source was on takenote),set your tester to ohmmeter R10 test rod at both end on terminal take reading if no deflection,you have busted heating element,replaced heating element,If there's relay holding supply on heating element on circcuit board try to check it out.if source 115 volt is acquired,also check the resistance coil of relay,iif defective replaced one...have a nice they.
