fuse blows after running 2., 3 seconds. transformer bad?
hello, it’s GE, model number peb2060sm1ss that I am trying to fix. I pulled apart and checked all parts. all seems okay except for transformer and diode.
The oven runs without primary to the transformer. The fuse does not blow.
I disconected megatron, capacitor , diode from transformer and connected primary only. The fuse blows.
since the over runs okay without transformer connected, (only fan runs without primary), I eliminated door switches.
Since the fuse blows without connecting to megatron, capacitor, diode, I eliminated those as well. I have new diode and capacitor installed though
so I checked primary, secondary and high voltage from transformer. nothing is shorted. The only thing I noticed is resistance between high voltage and core(body) is 0.03 ohm. From what I goggled, it needs to be higher than that. 75-200ohm? I am not sure what it means.
Should I just replace the transformer?..or is there anything else i should check or am I checking wrong?
