Customer Question
Hi, I am having problems with...
Hi,
I am having problems with my J***** *****te2 Heater in that the igniter keeps blowing the 2 amp fuses. I traced the problem to the 115/230 VAC Conversion Plug. The plug changes 230 volts to 115 volts for the igniter. This failed three different times in that it is not changing the volts to 115. I have replaced the Power Control Board and Transformer and I still can't find what is causing this problem.
I would appreciate any help to find my problem.
Thanks,
Harold John

Thank you,

First a poor/bad ground contributes.

Also deviating power input. Usually low power..Example is if lights dim at start up or when heater activates.

do you have 2 hots, a neutral and ground to unit or just 2 hots and a ground?

I was wrong earlier, the unit has only 2 hots and a ground just as it shows in the wiring diagram. The reading are: Hot to Hot 250 volts; Black to ground 126 volts; Red to ground 124 volts; No neutral to ground.
