Sunbeam EM4800 stopped working... repair help request!
Hi all, My EM4800 just didn't turn on one day. (no lights lit up).
Being the handyman, I took the entire think apart and cleaned and checked all parts.
My first thought was the switch had fried, but I tested it and it is fine. After cleaning and reassembling everything (and checking continuity of the power cable to switch and measuring resistances etc) I decided to give it another try.
When I switched it on, it tripped a breaker in the house, so something is definitely shorted or fried.
Does anyone know the correct resistance of the heating element coil? I measure 54 ohms, which seems like it may be a bit low.
Can anyone confirm some of the electrical specs or tips on where to look next?
Thanks in advance!!!
