Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today. lets get started.


which fuse did you check ? the one on the top of the heating ? the one on the left in this picture? Main Product View

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Neither. There is one on the left side of the machine that is mounted in the exhaust. It is a small white fuse that is surface mounted. I am familiar with both of those pictured and I have checked neither. I don't know how to, or what to read.

check the one on the heater itself, the one on the left in the picture. part # XXXXX on this diagram, its on the side top of the heater can, heres a video on how to test this, just click the blue link, I'll bet you will find its bad, thanks Bryan

checked all fuses, thermostats, and cutoffs, heating element is brand new. There appears to be nothing wrong with the heating circuit. Any other ideas?
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
you need to trace the wires back to the motor and remove one wire from the heating element istself and test the wire comming off the motor for 120 volts while its running and see if you get voltage, if not then the motor centrifucal switch is bad, if you get power the timer is bad.
