So what goes wrong? Them coils get weak with age. They work when cool but die like a dodge truck when the coils get hot.  :rofl:

1 and 2 are limits. 3 is a control stat 4 is a duct fuse. None of these are intermittent by nature. Only those solenoid coils have been proven to work a little and get hot and quit, they cool down a work a little more  O0
1 2 and 4 are one timers (meaning they blow they gone bye bye). 3 is a control thermostat with a bias heater. The 2 small terminals are to a heater built inside the control which when activated causes the control to shut down sooner for cooler cycles like perm press and knits. Clever ain't it  :rofl:
