Building on albumnys agony...that damned thermistor.
Harman part number 3-20-11744
Replaces Harman part # 1-00-00744.
OEM Harman part.
The Harman dealer sold me a 744 that was just ratty bit of cable off a failed unit and clamped on a new thermistor with the number 060914. No problem but if he can do it so can I. Sorry no pics - camera died in Irene.http://zone.ni.com/devzone/cda/tut/p/id/3643
So now we know what RTDs are and the question becomes is it a 100ohm or a 1000ohm. So old cable - dead short new cable 123ohms at RT on my ratty meter. In the fridge for 30minutes -about 100ohms and in the nozzle of a boiling kettle 213ohms. Looks like a 100ohmer. If you look at the diagram you can imagine if this goes to short circuit the current increases (see figure 3) - yep, I think I remember Ohms Law (my limit electrically). Old board no fuse, new board P38+ fuse that has blown and a trip to RadioJoke fixed that one.
So off to the mouser.com and Omega boards board and looking at thermistors probes (sorry RTDs) we find many things that look like the one to get.
So in it goes and as of one hour ago with the windowlaters working flat out (phew), I have my stove back.
So albumny according to your tech which one is it?
So I think pull the two lead RTD (you have to clean out the fines anyway), clean out the exhaust port and then replace. Test according to the above protocol and for my money, replace annually for about $20. No albumny you do no harm the stove by pulling the two lead RTD with the power on (stove cold of course) out of the exhaust port but don’t disconnect from the board but with a good heat source the auger should go on, then the dist. fans. Do all the other things as recommended and use a good surge detector (many posts advising this one). Now guys how can I get a cheap 060914?
PS- remember this is the old DVC. Look on the website of my previous posts to see if you qualify. If the lead is red instead of black it's all different. Of course the P38+ was so much trouble they canned that dog quickly. Harman is about to send me a rebate in the mail (and the moon is made of green cheese).
