Expert Answer: "Hello Slam. Lets test the high limit. Your model does not use the board, so either the timer or the temperature switch will be the culprit. To test the high limit. Use an meter and see when it open and breaks voltage to the heater. The see if it closes and the voltage returns. If not, disconnect the power and test for continuity and see if it reads closed. If so, high limit is bad and needs replaced. If it is opening and closing properly, either the timer, or temperature switch is bad and needs to be replaced on the unit."
The high limit thermostat tested closed without power feeding to it. Did I understand the above answer in the fact that if the hight limit thermostat tested closed without power then it is bad? If I misunderstood that, please correct me. Thank you!
ANSWER Hello Slam. No, the high limit should read closed without power going to it. It is testing good on the unit.
