Hello, I'm testing my existing 306199 relay, and there is infinite resistance between terminals A and B (the coil). That's incorrect, right? If it was working, the coil would measure a dead short right?
You will want to test the small terminals, one will have a double red and the other will have a brown/black wire attached, for 490 ohms of resistance. These points are for the coil of the relay. Also check from the black to the brown wire on the relay and you should have a open circuit. If you get anything other than these readings then the relay would need to replace the heater relay.
I order this heater relay 306199 and I cannot find it on my dryer.
Answer Hello Landon,
This heater relay is located under the control panel. To remove panel remove the 4 screws at the top of the panel and roll panel forward.
Hello, My heater relay seems to be defective. But it seems it is a 24VDC relay. On the diagram on the machine, it says the voltage for this relay as well a the motor relay is 24VAC. Could there be a mistake on the diagram?
Answer Leo, No The relay circuit is activated by a 24 VDC (it's actually a modified a/c circuit) circuit from the control board. When 24 volts is applied to the relay circuit, the relay closes and completes the circuit on the other contatcs and allows the 120 VAC power to flow through the relay and out to the heater or motor. You need to be careful when working with the relays, the 120 VAC wires are "hot" as long as the unit has power supplied to it. Make sure you unplug the power cord when working with the relays. Good Luck and Thanks
Can I order screws and wires with the relay? Where do I connect the relay and the wires to it?
Answer Hello Barry! The wiring that hooks up to the heater relay 306199 is the main wire harness 33002616. There are terminals on the relay that the wires from the harness plug into. Hope this information helps, thanks!
My dryer stopped heating. I have checked the following for continuity and all checked out. Thermal Fuse, Thermister, Thermal Limits (on heater housing) the relay (heater) and the heating coils. What else can it be? (and yes the vent is clear).
Answer Hello Tim. You should check the heating element 314503 and the output to the heating element from the electronic control board 33001048. Also, the only part of the dryer that is 240Vac is the heating element, so it is possible for half of your breaker to trip and the dryer can still run but with no heat. The same is true for the electrical connections so you should check the power supply at the terminal block to insure the voltage is getting past the wall outlet and the terminal block hasn't been hot. Hope this helps!
What does the Relay, heater 306199 do?
Answer Hi Darrell. This relay part # 306199, sends the powerto the heater that assist your water temperatures for optimum wash/cleaning temperatures. Thank you.
