How To Test The Midmark M9 Heating Element
This test consists of measuring the amount of resistance in the element. To do this, first, turn the autoclave off and unplug it from the wall
WARNING: CURRENT MUST NOT BE PRESENT WHEN MEASURING RESISTANCE
Open the door and pull down the (drain) hose, aiming it into a bucket, and drain the water reservoir. Close & latch the door when finished
Lay the autoclave on its side so you have access to the bottom of the unit
You will see an access panel with one screw holding th panel in place. Remove the screw and then remove the panel.
Now you will see the legs from the heating element. Unplug the (2) wires (one on each leg) and use those terminals for the test as follows
Set your volt/ohm meter on 200 ohms (200 NOT 200k). The ohms range is located within the Omega (ω)(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 of the 2 terminals on the element (it really doesn't matter which color probe goes where).
|For the Midmark M9 Heating Element to be good, it must fall within the resistance range of between 9.000 ↔ 11.000 ohms If your reading is outside of this range, then it is defective and needs to be replaced.
||Between 9.000 ↔ 11.000 ohms
