Do you have a Volt -Ohm meter and know how to use it? to be able to do any testing!

Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 month ago.

This unit has a high limit thermostat on the rear of the unit we need to be able to test it to see if that is the issue or if it is some other component that has failed.

I have an ohm meter how do I test it.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 month ago.

test the high limit for continuity .

if it is good you will have infinite resistance if it is bad it will be open.
