If your machine doesn’t heat up, the two most common factors would either be the heating element or the solid state relay. You can identify which part it is by doing a simple solid state relay test. To resolve this please follow these steps:
- Locate the solid state relay which has screws labeled 1, 2, 3, and 4. Disconnect and cross the wire from port #1 into port #2. Now you will have both wires connected into port #2 and no wire in port #1.
- Once tightly connected, turn on your machine and see if it heats up. If your machine heats up while the wires are crossed, then your heating element is working and the cause of the issue is likely the solid state relay. If it doesn’t heat up, then your solid state relay is fine and your heating element will need to be replaced.
- Once the solid state relay test is complete, do not operate the machine in this manner and return the moved wire back to its original position.
