Does this T-Stat contain a SPDT type switch? In other words, when the cut-out temperature is reached and the main terminal (#1) opens, does terminal #2 (the timer circuit) contact close?
ANSWER Bud, Yes, If the dryer is heating properly, and the hi limit thermostat remains closed, when the cycling thermostat cycles the heater circuit open and the internal contacts switch to terminal #2 and feeds the 120 VAC to the timer motor, and the timer dial moves, but only on the "auto advance" cycle. Good Luck and Thanks
