Hiya,

What wires have you disconnected and from where?

 

Thanks

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

all the wires that are at the top of the machine ie timer switch on off button thermostat

Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.

Hiya,

OK, thanks for that.

Unfortunately the wiring diagram doesn't differentiate and show what's in the facia, it just shows the wiring for the entire appliance.

 

I have a diagram that shows wiring for a timer and a start switch. No on/off switch is shown.

What is actually in the facia panel of your appliance?

 

There's a mechanical timer.

There is a start button?

Anything else?

 

Thanks

 

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
there is a start button timer and high heat low heat button
Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.

Hiya,

The heat switch, the diagram shows white wires to this.

 

The start switch, grey wire to one side and a blue wire to the other side.

 

The timer, what are the numbers / letters on the timer connections on your machine?

 

Thanks

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
the number are 10 7 2bn 19 1 2 3 5 and there is a lil box that says t85 ac only
Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.

Hiya,

OK, thanks for that.

 

Has the timer on your appliance ever been changed?

 

There's no 19 on the wiring diagram.

 

Thanks

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
i dont thinkso could have been tho
Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.

Hiya,

OK, unfortunately I don't have the timer kit wiring at home.

I'll have to opt out of the question and open it to all experts again.

 

If no one has helped by the time I get into the office in the morning I'll opt back in and advise on the new wiring.

 

Sorry

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
ok
Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.

Hiya,

I've had a look at the conversion kit and it's nothing like your timer either.

 

You should have, 1, 3, 9, 17 and 19 or 2, 3, 5, 8 and 10.

 

Can you check your timer again please.

The above are the terminals that are actually used.

You need to have all 5 of them, either batch.

 

Thanks

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
ok think its 2, 3, 5, 8 and 10

ok thats not worked either i have a blue wire that has 2 connections on it so one is to power the other is to 8 but don't know if that is correct don't have any other blue wires and nothing is doing anything
Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.

Hiya,

Sorry, I don't know what you mean in your post.

 

I've advised from the wiring diagram.

A connection with 2 blue wires goes to 8 on the timer.

 

What have you wired up?

Can you post a photograph of the timer and it's wiring so the numbers can be seen?

 

Thanks

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.

Hiya,

Sorry, nothing showing.

Can you upload it to a file sharing site and post the link to it here?

 

Thanks

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
graphic
Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.

Hiya,

OK, I can't see the numbers I'm afraid so I can't check if the wiring is correct.

 

What was the original fault?

 

 

The double blue is shown on the diagram to be on the timer but it should still work the way it's wired on your machine.

 

What actually happens when you try to use the appliance?

 

Thanks

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
nothing its not doing anything
Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.

Hiya,

OK, thanks for that.

 

If the wiring is as advised earlier then you need to try bypassing the door lock.

 

The brown wire from the mains connector on the rear links to the pink/white wire on the timer.

 

It's probably easier to disconnect the brown from the mains connector and the pink/white from 2 on the timer.

 

Make a lead to connect from the mains connector to 2 on the timer.

This will totally bypass the door lock.

 

If the machine runs, the door lock is faulty.

 

Let me know what you find.

Thanks

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
brown wire is not long enough to attach
Expert:  Techdesk replied 3 years ago.

Hiya,

Please read my last post.

 

I advised making a lead to connect.

 

Thanks
