{0 Comments}

1. Disconnect the unit from the power source.
2. Discharge the capacitor.
3. Remove the wires from the PTC device terminals.
4. Allow the PTC to cool to room temperature.
5. Remove the PTC device.
6. Using an ohmmeter, check the resistance between the PTC device terminals. The ohmmeter should register between 3 and 20 ohms.

An extreme variance between 3 and 20 ohms indicates a defective PTC device which must be replaced.
