Be sure your Tuttnauer 1730E Heater Element is defective before replacing it, by performing the following test:
How To Test The Tuttnauer 1730E Heater Element
This test consists of measuring the amount of resistance in the element. To do this, first, turn the Tuttnauer
autoclave off and unplug it from the wall
WARNING: CURRENT MUST NOT BE PRESENT WHEN MEASURING RESISTANCE.
Set your volt/ohm meter on 200 ohms (200 NOT 200k). The ohms range is located within the Omega (
)(look for this symbol) section of your meter. It is also the area with "k" ranges (ie: 2000k,. 200k, 20K
and then 2000, 200).
Place a probe from the volt/ohm meter on each terminal of the 2 terminals on the element (it
really doesn't matter which color probe goes where).
For the heating element to be good, it must fall within the resistance range in this table (
between 36.9 and 45.1 ohms
) If your reading is outside of this range, then it is defective and needs to be replaced.
HEATING ELEMENTS SERVICE TIPS
- When replacing a Heater, a burning smell may be present for
several cycles. This is normal and does not indicate any malfunction
of the new Heater.
Heaters offered by AllClaveParts and Tuttnauer are designed to
accommodate Safety Thermostats that use 3/16" diameter bulbs.
replacing the Heater band that mounts the Safety Thermostats to the
Chamber, take a moment to measure the diameter of the Safety Thermostat
- If the bulbs
are 1/8" diameter (original style), then replace them with the newer
style 3/16" diameter bulbs to ensure proper contact to the Chamber and
the heater band.
sure that the bulb for the automatic reset Safety Thermostat is
installed in the lower groove of the Heater band, and that the bulb for
the manual resetĀ thermostat is installed in the upper groove.
installing new Heater bands, tighten all bolts evenly until the band is
snug against the Chamber. Run the sterilizer through several test
cycles and then retighten the hardware to ensure proper fit. Failing to
properly tighten Heater Bands can lead to premature failure.
