Have RV Questions? Ask an RV Mechanic Online.
Can you see any yellowish debris around the base of the burner area? Was it operated out of level for any length of time? Get back to me with this and we can sort this out.
What we usually do is hook the heating element up so as to bypass the thermostat and see if the unit will almost freeze. That requires hooking up the heating element directly to a power cord. Is that feasible or not?
It can be a challenge to get to the ends of the heating element, so we usually cut them and install a house cord and plug it in directly to a power source. That will ask it to "max cool" and we can see if the cooling unit is good or not that way. No polarity on the leads. Let me know what happens.
We want to bypass the controls and so that is why we direct wire it.
Well you have to unplug it first!
I have been right here........you told me there was 120 volts on those wires and I told you to unplug it first. I have seen no other posts
I can see this isn't going any place........so I will opt out and let another tech offer something.
