In Topic: Tili TM11VR portable AC - not turning off

15 July 2013 - 05:33 PM

Tested big relay --- didn't get tone - no continuity.  Going to test further --- but some good news:  As I was looking for sources for these relays I found a company that bought up the remaining stock of spare parts for Tili (who are themselves no longer in business).  He had several of these boards in a box collecting dust.  Grabbed one and swapped it out --- everything works like a charm.  Thanks for you help guys -- pointing me back to the relay saved me time and expense.  I may post some photos of the old board and its traces to see if you have any ideas how to test the remaining relays - just for science.  And also still quite interested -- a run capacitor -- is it essentially applifying a charge continuously after starting?  Like in the above photos the run capacitors were both 250V --- is this just a max rating or are they actually providing 250V?.

Many Thanks


Unfortunately there are at least 4 relays on the board -- This is the big (main?) one -- the Hongfa HF2160 -- the three others are the JZC-32F.  Quick question about the continuity check on the main relay -- would that also work if I disconnect both leads?  How would I check the others?  I've included some new photos including a wiring diagram -- the diagram is for a newer revision of what I have so there are a few components (like a water pump and tank full sensor) that this unit does not have.  Many Thanks for your help so far.diag.jpg

Makes sense.  Many thanks for that - I'll sleep a little easier knowing why this might have occurred.
