Yah my bay heater blower is working but the heating element isn't, just blowing cold air. Can I assume at this point that the fuse inside the heater is blown??? Any thoughts??

Thanks
Ed

Yes, that is what mine was doing. I replaced the thermal fuse located in the heater and all is working fine now. Not sure why the thermal fuse opens but it is quite common with age on the unit.

Anyone have a picture of the Thermal Fuse? I opened one to find such a thing but could not identify it.

I thought a light bulb would work well but: it could burn out in the middle of the night or any spray would pop it, it could fall over and melt something, and it's not temp controlled.

You can try this link, L don't know the rating you need as there are a few. If you look on the thermal fuse the rating is listed (need good eyes or magnifier)
Thermal fuse 121 degrees celsius. by Thermodisc, Thermal Fuses at Goodman's Small Appliance & Housewares
Hope this helps you.

Radio Shack usually stocks some thermal fuses. Our local Radio Shack has a 262 F (121C=250F) Thermal fuse in stock.

FWIW

Hello and thanks for all the good info here. I, too, am having difficulty finding the snap disc for my 2008 Diplomat 40 PDQ. I have read that it is behind the wet bay panel in other models, but I am looking for the location specifically for my coach.

Help will be much appreciated!

I have a 2007 Diplomat 40PDQ and my owners manual says that when the bay temperature reaches 40 degrees the heater will kick on and when the bay temp reaches 55 degrees it shuts off.

It should look similar to this photo..this is the one in our Inverter bay which is set to kick on if the compartment gets too hot...


I may try to dig around tomorrow or Wednesday (if the weather is decent)to see if I can find it for you...

It appears to me that this is a snap disc, not a bay heater thermal fuse. This is not what flagelpater is looking for. It is what TXTURNER is looking for.
