  • Page 28 Diagnostics From The Board Dead Board If the board is not responding check for voltage through the L1 fuse. If voltage is present there, check voltage from the J8 Orange wire to board neutral on J8 White wire. If no voltage check for an open T-STAT or fuse.
  • Page 29 Diagnostics From The Board Water Valve Disconnect power to the dryer. Remove the J8 connecter. Check resistance between the J8 Brown wire to the Red wire on the J5 connecter. Should read approximately 550 OHM. If resistance is good, reconnect wires put the dryer in service mode.
  • Page 30 Diagnostics From The Board Gas Valve Also check between J4 and J2. If relay is closed NO voltage should be present when calling for heat. If it is, replace the board. If voltage is present, disconnect power from the dryer. Check igniter, T-STATs, flame detect, gas valve coils, motor switch, harness and connecters.
  • Page 31: Diagnostics From The Board Motor Resistance

    Diagnostics From The Board Motor Resistance Disconnect power from the dryer. Disconnect the J8 connecter from the board. Set your meter to Resistance setting.
