Has it ever ran the electric heat ?
Hello Mark. Yes it has, the unit is 14mo. old, and the blower motor went out, this Nordyne is confusing. I have another one that is wired to the W and has a 15kw element, and is working ok. I have cross checked the wiring of both and I am at a lost. of why the heating unit doesn't funtion properly. When Nordyne sent the new motor to be replaced. I put in new xfm., capacitor, load relay, contacts and thermocoupling. Have check and recheck wiring but somewhere I'm overlooking something. Let me know what you think. Thanks. Lonnie
I took a look at the wiring diagrams on the 15 and the 10 which are basically the same as far as LV is concerned .
If you have cross checked all the wiring then I have to believe that you have everything connected properly.
In all of the components you replaced you didn't mention the element contactor. I'm wondering if you disconnected the wires going to the coil of that and then put everything else back the way you said , if it would blow the fuse.
if it does then we at least know that it is not a contactor problem, from there it's a matter of wringing out the wires, basically removing devices until you find what is causing the problem.
The xrmr you replaced has the same or higher VA rating as the original one ?
I'm sure it does , just asking to make sure.
Sorry I can't be of more help but this problem is hard to detect if therre isn't any miswiring involved. It's just a matter of tracing down the components and wiring, Go to the biggest components first, the element contactor probably has the highest low voltage load so I would start there.
