Default Repairing faulty ANKO AO8606 air fryer

Hi all,

We have an ANKO AO8606 air fryer that suddenly no power. I pulled it apart and probed the AC-IN, but wasn't getting voltage (or continuity from the plug to the PCB in the air fryer).
I dug further and found a thermal fuse in the middle. No continuity on the fuse (but continuity on the plug > fuse, and fuse > pcb. but no beep on the fuse itself.)

Now looking to buy a replacement fuse and heat-resistance sleeve to see if that fixes things.




Anyone know if this fuse will be ok?https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/18483244...YAAOSw7I9hK0S5

^ I can get 3x fuses (couple of spares) for $7, otherwise cheapest I've seen is 1x for $7.50 (Australian dollar)

Also, the heat resistant sleeve. Are these ok,

the fuses you linked are o.k. if the fryer isnt using over 10A

just remember to not get the fuse hot while your fitting it - a classic noob mistake
either freeze it before soldering or clamp a pair of grips or something to the lead to take away the heat.
better yet - use crimp terminals.

According to the sticker, it's 240v, 1800w. So that should be about 7.5amps?

oh wow, thanks for the tip . The thermal fuse that was in there seemed to be crimped in,






I've actually been looking at getting a pair of crimpers and some terminals. Just a basic set like this

or

Nothing flash, but should do the job for someone who doesn't do much electronic work ?


Thanks again

You could do a quick check with your meter:
Measure from both live and neutral to ground (if it has one) to make sure it is open.
And then measure from live to neutral and make sure you have a sensible reading: for 1800w at 230VAC that would be around 30ohms for the heating element.

not too sure what you mean. Here a pic of what IO'm looking at. A couple of the connectors have been removed during the teardown.

The wires are labeled, just measure the AC wires to the green/orange ground wire to make sure the readings make sense (no connection).
And between the AC leads something in the range of 1800w as I wrote above.
