Model: FP920    87605

Serial:  BAM442514

 

 

Year manufactured??

Firstly, how old is this unit?  I found a website suggesting that the B indicated it was a year ending in 4, but was it  94 or 04.

 

 

Fault:

Apparently the unit started smoking, while in use.

When I pulled the covers off it and ran it, it seemed to be running through the cycle fine, but the water wasnt being heated.

 

The element measures about 35ohm, which seems ballpark for a 1.5kw element.

 

The Thermal overload measures aprox 0.4ohms.

 

I haven't pulled the door apart yet, as I gather there must be a relay on the control board in there.  Is this the case, and is it the likely culprit?  Has anyone changed one of these out before?

 

Thanks.

a B serial number is 4 so could be 94 or 2004 but 920 models werent made back in 94 so makes it 2004 manufacture

 

A makes it august

 

element sounds ok

 

I would stick it on a fast cycle and wait a few minutes and it should be on the heating part of the cycle

 

you can then easily check voltages at the overtemp and element

 

the electronics are generally reliable but not to say thats where your fault lies

Thanks for that. Much appreciated.

 

I let it run for probably 10 minutes or more and there was no discernible heat at all.

 

I'll check the voltages, but given the resistance readings I'm thinking the fault lies up in the panel.

 

I'll give it another run and check voltages, but I think I'll end up having to pull the door apart and have a look at the controller/relays.

 

Are these boards/assemblies available if this is the fault?

 

Thanks.
