Think You'd Never Be Stumped By a Dryer? Think Again...

Son of Samurai


We're taking a step back from our fancy electronics to the good ol' days of simple AC circuits. Well, I say "simple", and that is true -- but engineers back then had to pull out all the stops and do some pretty cool tricks to get the functionality they wanted. This means that, to really understand what's going on in these older circuits, you need to have a firm grasp of both AC circuits and the technology used.

In this webinar, we:

  • Work through 4 real-world dryer case studies that have faked out today's technicians
  • Gain a deeper understanding of basic AC circuits and dryer components like start relays, motor centrifugal switches, and TCOs and how they function in dryer circuits
  • Explain the famous “loads in series” configuration and show it in action
  • Illustrate the non-analytical troubleshooting technique of jumping the switch
  • Explain how TCOs operate and why they go open
  • Explain why amp measurements are always the first SOP move when troubleshooting any AC circuit and especially when a dryer TCO has opened.
  • Learn why sharp techs prefer live tests over ohms tests any-freakin-day

This and our dozens of other technical training webinar recordings are only viewable by premium tech members at Appliantology.
