Hi there! Have searched the forums and now just making sure I'm doing the right thing
Ok so far unplugged appliance. Checked for obvious burning of wires, broken element
, damaged thermostat etc. Nothing obvious to see.
There are 2 Thermostats: One with 2 light blue wires. One with 2 Orange wires with a blue/green dot on the back of it.
Removed both thermostats. Checked, and power is going through the one with the blue wires. The one with the orange wires and dot.....nothing.
Bypassed this one (with the dot and orange wires) for a second, and elements started to heat up.
Conclusion…Faulty thermostat! Am I Correct?
Question: Read when looking for parts that both thermostats had to be changed at once, even though one seems to be working. Is this correct?
Question: What causes this to happen to the thermostat? No major dust and grime build up, and the condenser etc has always been cleaned regularly. Just afraid there is something I am missing and the new thermostat will go wrong.
Thanks in advance for your help. Brian
