TROUBLE DIAGNOSIS
-
As the micom dry machine is configured of the complicate structure, there might be the
service call.
Below information is prepared for exact trouble diagnosis and suitable repair guide.
Caution for the Repair and Replacement
Please follow below instruction for the trouble diagnosis and parts replacement.
1) As some electronic components are damaged by the charged static electricity from the resin
part of dryer or the human body, prepare the human body earth or remove the potential
differ ence of the human body and dryer by contacting the power supply plug when the work
contacting to PCB is executed.
2) As the P.C.B assembly is designed for no trouble, do not replace the P.C.B assembly by the
wrong diagnosis and follow the procedure of the trouble diagnosis when the micom is not
operated normally.

During ignition the dryer will draw X amps. With the burner ON,
the dryer will draw X amps. If the dryer is drawing amperages
above this, then the house wiring, fuse box or circuit breaker is
suspected to be at fault.
Igniter harness loose and shorted to base.
Incorrect wiring or wire shorted to ground.
Drive motor winding shorting to ground.

Open heating element.
• Hi-Limit trips easily or is open.
• Regulating thermostat trips easily or is open.
• Membrane switch open.
• Check Thermistor.

Will Not Dry Gas
Model Poor Gas
Ignition
When the dryer is operated on a heat setting, the igniter should be
energized and burner shall fire within 45 seconds at 120 VAC. The
