Be sure your Tuttnauer 2540E Heater Element is defective before replacing it, by performing the following test:
How To Test The Tuttnauer 2540E 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.
