Please double check your reference for the proper resistance on this item. Per the service sheet at the link: http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?topic=8333.0, it should be around 100K ohms. Both of mine measure out there and the dryer operates.
Answer Brad, Based on the diagram, Your thermistors are NTC(negative thermal coefficient) The higher the temperature the less resistance produced through the thermistor. At room Temperature (78 dgrs.F)the resistance should be 98 to 102 thousand ohms +/- 10 % across the terminals,with the wires disconnected. Thanks and Good Luck
I'm not reading continuity on this piece I received today. I'm assuming that I should, right?
Answer Hello Larry. No, it does not read closed for continuity, but should read around 10k ohms at room temperature. Hope this helps.
