Model: FP920 87605
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.
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?
