    Issues with chamber heater

    Hi. Iím having some trouble with the chamber heater..
    But when I go in the menu and test I can hear that the relay says click.. and if I touch the temp sensor I see the temp rising... so do anyone know what the error can be then..?
    Hope somebody can help..

    Is the fan blowing? Is the heater heating up? That would be the only other two functions.

    ...and the system complains that the chamber temp is not going up or reaching temp. I do not know the entire circuit but there may be a thermal reset switch. We've had a discussion on this heater here before. Bottom line is that it is replaceable as best as I recall. BRB...

    B... this is where we talked about it some.

    How far into the routine does the system go before it complains?

    In that case it is simply reporting that the chamber took too long to heat up. Can you get to the wires for the heater leads? I'm thinking to take an ohm meter to the heater coils to see if they are open.

    I suspect that if you laid a hair dryer in there it would print at some point if you got the temp right.

    Now there is a trick... a small fan and a light bulb should work nicely
