Beko DRCS68W does top thermostat read zero ohms at room temp?

Hi my name is ***** ***** are you refering to the thermostats or the NTC sensors?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

At 25 Centegrade the reading should be around 19.5K ohms

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am getting 24k at about 12C so that would seem to be right.
will fit and retest to see if I get heat. Have replaced heater. Any other suggestions to try if still not heating? many thanks

Have you checked the mechanical thermostats on the heater and near the heater, you should have continuity through them and are you getting any power to the heater?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
continuity on one with reset, 30K on other (both on heater assembly) so I assume the 30K reading is a fault? (its new part)

Check it is a thermostat rather than a NTC thermistor ~ power to heater?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the 30k is wired independent of power supply to heater, reset is on power to heater
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no power to heater. heater shows 130ohm across it

will test reservoir switch later - nursery run now

all working now. The new heater had come with the wiring reversed into the socket (as I have now found out) and the plugs were on a very short lead in the machine (couldn't see the wires) and at the time I didn't think it should be possible to locate plug in socket incorrectly - I was wrong. luckily all seems well. many thanks for your input!

No problem - would you now kindly rate the information by using the star rating system at the top of the page to allow me to shut the job down on my screen. Thank you for using JA and have a nice afternoon. - Ian
