May 09, 2013

Started machine, motor runs, air blows out of vent, checked glow coil thru peep hole, not glowing, removed back cover, unpluged machine, checked thermal fuse it's open, checked cycling thermostat, it's good. Replaced thermal fuse and cycling thermostat, this because it was the most probable cause of thermal fuse failure, installed back cover, checked machine, runs good, ran 2 cycles, all safeties good. No more problems.
