1. Test both overheat thermostats according to the same procedure as follows:
Disconnect quick disconnect terminals ( 1 ) of
wires (2) from thermostat (3).
Connect terminals (4) of thermostat (3) in
series with volt ohmmeter using heat re-
sistant, insulated wires.
Place thermostat in heating chamber along
with accurate thermometer.
Thermostat contacts must open between 253°
and 267° F (123° and 131°C). Turn off heat
and allow thermostat to cool. Thermostat contacts must close between 227° and 243° F
(108° and 117°C). Replace thermostat that fails to operate within these limits.
