Hi this can be a couple of different things, first of all remove the wires to the 120v heater located in the heat stack on the right, and take the wires off of the control board, (unplug the refer first) and check resistance of the heater, thanks

RV Mechanic: Michael Reush, RV Technician replied 3 years ago
Hi, what were doing is testing the resistance of the heaters, unplug the two wires and test the wires,

power at board terminals; low 1-13.2, low 2-13.4, high1-108.1, high 2-108.7 but when I check the wires one at a time checking feed back voltage, low 1-54.5, low 2-108, high 1-7, high 2-13.3 , the #1 side also had no continuity?
RV Mechanic: Michael Reush, RV Technician replied 3 years ago
thanks,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,do me a favor, check the continuity of the heating elements it should be around 65ohms, then do you have two heaters or one? I know your board has low, and high................test one terminal against the other of the same output, two terminals low, two terminals high, thanks
Ask Your Own RV Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
low 1 to high 1 - no continuity, low 2 to high 2- 57ohms
RV Mechanic: Michael Reush, RV Technician replied 3 years ago
I'm sorry I am not communicating properly............I need voltage reading from the terminals for low, and the terminals for high................one probe on one terminal, and one on the other on low,,,,,,,,,,,,,and high............then I need the resistance reading of the element itself, test one wire against the other on the same heater, No continuity reading, voltage................set your meter to ac.thanks
