Frigidaire Model# PLDB998CC0 Wiring issue
« on: April 06, 2013, 04:43:02 PM »
I got this as a freebie when I bought a stainless stove and OTR microwave out of a foreclosed home for $100. When I went to unhook it the wires and wire nut were melted and fried from over heating. Attached is a picture. I already remove the everything to see if something was jammed in the pump etc. but it was all clear and clean. What would cause this.

I see that all the time. The installer does not get a good connection. O0

JUst finished installing it in my kitchen and it has a bad control board. Front panel started smoking real bad and now my house stinks. Lol! They dont sell the boards anymore from what I found on the net. I did see complaints about them catching fire though. Maybe this is why? Guess I have a parts machine.  :tickedoff:

I come across burnt wire nuts all the time also.  The installer gets in a hurry & doesn't pre twist the wires before twisting the wire nuts.  An very old master electrician taught me well 30 years ago to make the connection strong & tight before installing the wire nut on connection.   The board more than like was damaged do to the wire nut connection arcing from the sloppy install & thus when re-energized went to smoke it self.  My 2-cents.

Red wire nuts are too big for that connection.  Use yellow or tan.
