Question about Hobart 42 in. AM14C-154 Free-standing Dishwasher
We have a am14c dishwasher,two elements went bad,one was leaking which caused sparks to fly out.I replaced the 2 elements but the heater does kick in,have voltage ,how do I test the thermostat to see if it shorted out?
If elements exploded, you replace them, and you don't have heat, you need a meter.
But the obvious things you can do -- check the high limit (little red button on lower front panel, behind a plate)
Otherwise you'll need a meter to check continuity for each thermostat (control/high limit), the coil on the contactor, the probe for low water cut-off, and voltage inputs and outputs to the low water cut-off board. Also there is the transformer to check.
The only way to test the thermostats without a meter is to jumper a wire across the terminals. This has some real personal dangers. Turn off the breaker, CREATE a jumper and attach it. Do not attempt to hand hold a jumper wire. WAY TOO DANGEROUS.
If you need help with any particular test, and you have a meter, I can help you out. Good luck - Mike
