TROUBLE ANALYSIS PROCEDURE
Problem
Possible Cause
Display shows "FAN 1, 2 OR 3 FAILURE-NO AIRFLOW"

The air switch contacts have opened, indicating the fan
may not be turning. The air switch may need adjustment.
Display shows "FAN 1, 2 OR 3 CANNOT START-CHECK
AIR SWITCH" message.*
The air switch contacts have closed prior to the fan
starting, indicating a freewheeling blade or improper setting
of air switch.
Fan motor will not start.
1. Check that the fan circuit breaker and the fan switch are
on. Also, check for defective switch or bad wiring connections.
2. If lighted switch does not light, the air switch needs
adjustment, or the bulb may be burned out.
3. Verify closing of fan motor contactor. Check voltage on
load side of contactor. See appropriate power wiring
circuit diagram for terminal numbers. Inspect contactor
for defective points or a burned out coil.
4. Inspect connections, and check voltage applied to the
motor leads in the fan heater box to determine if the
motor is defective.
5. Check capacitors on single phase motors, and replace if
defective. If motor starts slowly, check for low voltage
during starting due to excessive voltage drop in power
supply wiring.
Top auger will not start.
1. Check that the top auger circuit breaker and the load
auger switch are turned on.
2. If lighted switch does not light, the output power to the
contactor is missing. Check connections, or if the bulb is
burned out.
3. Check position of the upper auger paddle switch. It
must be down to start auger.
4. Inspect for secure mounting and wiring of mercury
switch in the terminal box on the top auger paddle
switch shaft. Include check for a defective mercury switch.
5. Verify closing of the top auger contactor. Check voltage on
load side of contactor. Inspect contactor for defective
points, or a burned out coil.
6. Inspect connections, and check voltage applied to motor
leads in motor junction box to determine if motor is defective.
7. Check that the mercury switch box is in the proper position.
Bottom auger will not start.
1. Check that the bottom auger circuit breaker is on.
2. If the lighted switch does not light, the output power to
the contractor is missing. Check connections, and
check to see if the bulb is burned out.
3. Check that the unload switch is on (1 or 2 speed).
4. Verify closing of bottom auger contactor; check voltage
on load side of contactor.
5. If using the moisture control, check for proper setting, or
defective operation of the control.
6. Check for any loose wire connections in unload auger
and moisture control thermostat circuits.
Grain not moving through columns.
1. Check the dryer for fine material buildup inside the

2. Avoid leaving the dryer columns full for long periods at a
time (2-3 days) while not operating the dryer, or during

* The number in the warning message designates the fan, burner or plenum where the problem is located. All areas are
numbered from the bottom up. For example, the bottom fan is number 1, and the top fan is number 3.
46
TROUBLE ANALYSIS PROCEDURE
Problem
Possible Cause
Grain not moving through columns.
1. Check the dryer for fine material buildup inside the
columns.
2. Avoid leaving the dryer columns full for long periods at a
time (2-3 days) while not operating the dryer or during
rainy weather.
3. Empty the dryer. Keep the dryer clean! Do not allow
fine material to gather in the plenum chamber.
4. It may be necessary to open the strike off plates in the
affected columns in half inch intervals.
Uneven drying-Some kernels appear brown while others
are under dried.
1. Check plenum thermostat temperature setting. Some
varieties of grain are more sensitive to higher operating
temperatures. It may be necessary to lower the plenum
operating temperature to accommodate this.
2. Check for proper burner alignment (side to side).
Vibration during shipment may have caused misalignment.
Uneven heat exiting from dryer columns.
Burner will not fire with fan operating.
1. Burner switch must be on.
2. Check for power to ignition board.
Heater switch light and gas solenoids go on and off
erratically-The light blinks on and off while the solenoids
"chatter".
1. The blinking light indicates the flame sensor is not
detecting flame.
2. The "chattering" solenoids are caused by the loss of
flame detection, and the thermostat and Fenwal ignition
board trying to reestablish a flame. Check for loose
wires on flame sensor; replace or repair wires or sensor.
Burner will not fire-No gas pressure with fan operating at
least 15 seconds (gas supply or fan heater malfunction).
1. Check gas supply. Also, check gas filter and gas line for
possible obstruction or closed valves. Refill tank;
replace or repair parts, as required.
2. Inspect gas solenoid valves (including liquid valve on
LP units) for defective coils or improper wiring. Replace
valve or coil if valve will not open with proper voltage
applied (120 volts).
3. Check for proper voltage. 120 volts across L1 and L2
incoming voltage to the Fenwal Ignition Board, and 115
volts outgoing across V1 and V2 to the solenoids.
Burner will not fire-But gauge shows gas pressure.
1. Fenwal Ignition Board: Check board for spark by
removing ignition wire from board, and holding aninsulated screwdriver against the output terminal and 1/4"
away from the control box casing. There should be a
strong spark. Check board wire connections. Replace
the Fenwal board, if necessary.
2. Ignitor: Check that the ignitor is properly gapped to 1/8"
and that it has a strong spark. Inspect the porcelain and
electrodes for damage or cracking. Replace or clean if
necessary.
Burner maintains desired drying temperature-but cycles
from hi-fire to off (without going to lo-fire).
1. Make sure the low flow control valve is not completely
closed. Valve must be adjusted open to provide the
proper lo-fire gas pressure listed in this manual.
2. Check lo-fire solenoid valve for proper operation.

Problem
Possible Cause
Burner operates-But will not cycle from hi-fire to lo-fire.
1. Check the gas pressure reading on the gauge. Problem
may be due to insufficient gas regulator setting. Temporarily decrease the hi-lo fire thermostat setting to verify
that the thermostat will function and cause the burner to
cycle. If burner will cycle at the reduced thermostat
setting, it indicates that the problem was due to insufficient heat to satisfy the original setting. Increase the
gas regulator setting for additional heat output. Do not
exceed the maximum pressure listed in this manual.
2. Hi-lo fire thermostat control may be defective. If the
burner still will not cycle to lo-fire after decreasing the
thermostat, the problem may be due to a broken or
kinked thermostat sensor tube. Observe reading on the
thermometer. Replace control assembly if it cannot be
set to cause its switch to go to the open circuit position
with normally hot air plenum temperatures.
3. If the burner continues to operate on hi-fire, check the
hi-fire gas solenoid valve for a stuck or blocked open
condition, or for reversed gas pipe connections. The
solenoid valve must not allow gas flow when its coil is
not energized.
Burner operates-But will not cycle from lo-fire to hi-fire.
1. Check for an excessive lo-fire gas pressure setting.
Observe pressure setting shown on gauge, and
compare reading with recommended low pressure
settings listed in this manual. Readjust lo-fire setting on
flow control valve, if necessary.
2. Check for improperly adjusted or defective hi-lo fire
thermostat control. Temporarily increase the temperature setting. If the heater will still not cycle, check for
problem in the control wire connections. The control
wires should be connected to terminals R and B of the
thermostat, so the switch will open upon temperature
rise. If the burner will cycle with these two wires
connected together, the thermostat is faulty.
3. Check for improperly connected or faulty hi-fire gas
vapor solenoid valve. Correct any poor connections or
defective wiring. If wiring appears proper, problem may
be caused by a burned out valve coil or defective valve.
Replace hi-fire solenoid valve, or its coil, if defective.
