    Arrow Temperature switch dryer

    Roper
    M- REX5635EQ2

    How would you ohm this switch?

    Have 3 dryers getting a little hot according to my thermometers. Temps range between about 170 and 120 when they should be between 155-130.

    Tried several different operating stats. One new one!

    Really didn't make a difference.

    This is what I came up with when ohming the switches.

    Low heat-1.7 with digital meter sat on 200 ohms
    Med - 6.74 @ 20k
    High- I

    From what I understand this should be

    High Heat - 3-4k ohms

    Med- 800 - 1000

    Low - 1-10

    I also saw a video saying High Heat should not show any reading. Operating stat would regulate the heat witout any input from the temp control.

    One of these is one wife used for a while. She loved it the way it dried clothes so fast. I told her iot may be overheating a little. Love it when I am right..it happens.

    Appreciate any info on these switches.

    170ºF + 120ºF = 290ºF divided by 2 is an average or mean temp of 145ºF.......sounds fairly good to me.
    The 170 is a little high for my liking.

    How would you ohm this switch?
    Which switch? Temp one?
    Diagram says lowest setting is 10Ω and highest setting is 10,000Ω.

    Agree on the average heat. It just seems high seeing that that the working stat is rated 155-25. Might shrink some clothes.

    I like it when the numbers hit quite a bit closer to what is stamped on the thermostat.

    Also seems to be very little difference in the high temps and the med and low temps.

    Thanks for the response and the diagram.

    Stick a 150 or 145 in and see what results you get.

    Most are 5 to 10 degrees difference and that is it.
