RV Repair Questions? Ask an RV Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I had already downloaded that manual, but the photocopies of the pictures in it have been copied so many times that it's impossible to tell what you are looking at.What I really need to know is how do I acess the control board,do I have to remove all of the gas service ect.
When I looked closer at the connections on the unit the 12 volt lock out wire had pulled free from a butt splice connector. I redid that and it appeares to transition to 12 volt properly now, but still not to 120 volt
Randall, it's almost dark now and I work the next 4 days, 12 hr shifts.let me get back with you on Wensday.Terry
Not a problem, Terry.........just Bookmark this and you can come right back to it any time. R.J.
Long story short, Yes, the gas assembly has got to be seperated ,feed line disconnected, screws removed that secure gas shut off , and one additional screw that secures the pilot/ignition assemble at the right of the access panel for the control board.The propane unit than can be rotated in the base of the chiminy to gain the room neccessary to pull the control board rearward and be able to disconnect the harness leads and remove the board. I wish that I could post a photo of the board . There are no fuses on the board. The board is marked as having been manufactured by the Electrolux company,though I could find no schematic for it online.There was a burnt circuit trace leading from one of the thermostat input terminals,over to the switch connection terminal block,which I wasn't seeking guidance for in my posting,but simply if it was necessary to get the propane unit out of the way. The downloaded manual tells me that I just remove a couple of screws and it comes out but it is not correct.
FYI, I am an Industrial Control Technician.I know how to use a multi-meter, and calculate circuit voltages and currents.If I could locate a schematic I could repair the board.I don't have the time to sit down and draw out the circuit and calculate the circuit voltages,resistances,and currents.
Not real happy with the answer that I got from you.It was as though you looked at the manual that is online and simply regurgated what it said.
