Note; I have already replaced the fuse in the unit
Okay, when I say it read open, that means it read infinite resistance. When I say it reads closed it means it should read 0 or as close to 0 ohms. And the 2 that read closed when the door is closed should read open when the door is open.
checking now, may be a few mins, thx
ok. Door Closed Door Open
switch1 0 ohms infinite
switch2 2 3.5
switch3 0 0
is that possible?
Okay, did you disconnect the wires going to the switches first? Also, let me get this straight. Switch 1 read 0 closed and infinite open
Switch 2 read 2 ohms closed and 3.5 ohms open
Switch 3 read 0 ohms closed and 0 ohms open
Do I have them correct and if so can you reread them. They are not reading correctly.
Okay , to take the wires off you will probably need needle nose pliers as each connector has a little clip that needs to be pressed to take off. If not be careful and use a flat tip screwdriver to pry off. Do that and let me know the readings again.
switch1: 0 closed , infinite open
switch2: infinite closed, infinite closed
switch3: 0 closed, 0 open
Okay, if your reading are correct then switch 2 and 3 are bad. They need to be replaced to correct you issue. Switch 2 is a safety switch which checks to make sure the other 2 are working correctly. Switch 2 should read Infinite closed and O ohms open. Switch 3 should read exactly like switch one. I recommend that you replace all 3 since you have to replace 2 of them. I am sending you a diagram and Switch 1 is #1445 on the diagram, switch 2 is #2010 and switch 3 is #1446 on the diagram. Hope this helps and I thank you for your time and patience, Randy.
there are 4 switches actually, there are 2 part 1446 (1 has 2 leeds, 1 has 3 leeds)
from the diagram, i was calling the 2 part 1446's switch 1 & 2 and 2100 switch 3
I have now tested part 1445, it tested as 0 ohms open and 0 ohms closed
