Question about Wells F-67 21167 Deep Fryer

1 Answer

Replaced the thermostats and high limit switches on both sides of a double vat unit. One thermostat blew immediately when the power was turned on. Blew like burned the guts out of it. This side is now dead and the light won't come on. I treid putting the other thermostat back in but ti wouldn't power back up. The other side light comes on but the element does not heat. The diagnoses were done by two local repair guys

Hello

This sounds to me as if your thermostat is not cycling the unit off. But I can see a second problem as well there should be a high limit cutoff to prevent it from running on and boiling over. I would check both. The thermostat is the dial or knob to regulate temperature and the high limit is the safty to prevent boil over or run on.

Thanks

SOURCE: fryer heats up but does

Hi there.
You may need to calibrate the new thermostat and in doing so, you will need a calibrated thermometer with sensor dipped in oil at about one (1) inch above the fryer thermostat sensing bulb.
Record the cut-off temp (when indicator light goes off) and compare it with the thermostat setting.
The thermostat has a calibration screw ( - ) recessed in the middle of the shaft, you will see the when you pull off the thermostat knob. this calibration screw can be turned by a precision screw driver, turn clockwise to decrease the cut-off temperature ; turn counterclockwise to increase the cut-off temperature.
Just make sure that the unit is preheated or have cycled at least 5 to 8 times and the oil is new before performing the calibration.
Regards.

High limit thermostat


A year ago, I needed to replace a high limit thermostat, and I received ( for the money) both the high and the low!. I replaced the high therm., and a month later, the low one went out. I discovered these need to be replaced as a pair only.
Be blessed.

Cadet baseboard heater


If I have your information right you have a black wire and a white wire marked red coming to the heater with 240 volts between them. You have a double pole unit mounted thermostat with a red and a black wire. Most double pole thermostats have two red and two black wires on them so I am not sure if you have a double or a single pole thermostat.There are also two wires going to the baseboard heater. One is connected to the element the other to a high limit switch which is then connected to the other end of the element. If the thermostat is a double pole the two red (or load) wires should connect one to each of the baseboard wires. The two black (line) wires should connect one each to the two incoming power leads. If it is a single pole thermostat the one red wire should connect to one of the baseboard wires the black should connect to one of the incoming power wires the remaining baseboard and power wires should then be connected together. Hope this helps

I think you are on the right track with a faulty high limit switch. When i serviced these units we always replaced the operating thermostat and the high limit switch together they came in a kit. The operating thermostat in theory should never let it get hot enough to trip the high limit switch, which is really just a safety backup for the operating thermostat. Get the kit and replace both, and also make sure your exhaust vent going outside has good flow at the outside vent,a restricted vent system will cause similar issues.. Good Luck

I service a goodmang GMNT 080 furnance and found the fuse blown


Hi, any time you remove the high limit wires the limit switch will show that it is open which starts the indoor blower motor. Your limit was good. It showed it was open on your code chart because the wires were removed. If you are blowing this 3 to 5 amp board fuse, its showing you have a dead short on the low voltage side of the furnace, not the high voltage such as the fan motor would run on. Make sure that the 18gauge thermostat wires coming in to the board are not skinned or have a bare spot touching metal which will cause this. Look it over good where it is pulled through to the board terminals. If it blows as soon as you put a new one in, yes indeed, dead short, 24 volt side. You may have to buy more fuses to find the problem, but any part or safety switch that is 24 volts need to be disconnected until you find the faulty part. Your board could be shorted. Kill the power to the unit. Draw a diagram of the stat wires so you know where they go back. Take them loose. If the fuse holds, the problem will be in the stat wire from there back to the thermostat, and can be the contactor coil shorted on the out door unit or thermostat. After you remove the wires, remove the 4- screws holding the board in. They are ( board ) hard to look at the back side, but work it around to get a look at the circuitry on the back for burned or blacked areas on the board. If there is, the board is the fault. I have seen this many times before. If it is, you may be able to get one at a appliance parts house. Take all model and serial, and board numbers with you. Just keep in mind it is a 24 volt part, control wiring toughing metal, stat, or the board its self. My bet its the control board. Please keep me updated on what you find, and remember to kill power when looking at the back of the board. If I have been of help to you on this, please be kind when rating me as I know you will. I will be here if you need more help.

Thermal cut-off blows and high limit thermostat is working with vent clean.Replaced thermal cut-off, high limit thermostat and heating element. Still blows thermal cut-off.


Any time a thermal cut off blows, it's because the cycling thermostat is bad. When it's bad, the machine cycles off of the thermal cut off rather than the cycling thermostat allowing the dryer to over heat. The thermal cut off is a re-setting safety and is not made to cycle off of. The thermostat you are looking for looks like a high limit thermostat but it cuts power to the element at a lower temp. Around 158 degrees + or - 25 degrees. It's located close to the high limit. It's a normally closed switch that opens on the rise and it will show closed now but the problem with it is that will not open. Replace it and your problem will be solved. Good luck.

Air Conditioner malfunction


Hi, Sounds like you have a short in the control circuit to me. Turn off all power going to the unit. Write down or otherwise mark the wires leaving the control board going to the thermostat. Remove them from the control board. Replace the fuse. Turn power back on and see if the fan still runs. If it does, check and or replace the heat limit switch that brings the fan on during the heat cycle. It may just need adjusted. If the fuse blows, I would think that the control board is probably bad. If it doesn't blow, Remove the thermostat. Leaving all thermostat wires open check them with an Ohm meter. There should be no continuity between them. Twist all the wires together at one end and ohm them again at the other end. You should have complete continuity on all wires. If the wiring checks out, down power the unit. Double check your wire colors and rewire the control board. With all wires open at the thermostat, turn the power back on. Touch the RED wire to the YELLOW wire. The Condensing unit should come on. Touch the RED wire to the GREEN wire. The fan should come on. Touch the RED wire to the WHITE wire. The heat should come on. Down power the unit. Replace the thermostat. Test unit. If the fuse has lasted ok but blows now it is either wired wrong at the Thermostat or the thermostat is bad. I hope I have helped. NOTE: If you can not understand these instructions. Call a licensed Heating / Air conditioning company. kstfas
