Klixon

Dose anyone know where I might find an internal schematic for an automatic resetting Klixon. What I need to know is what the three terminals go to internally. The number on the Klixon is CET67ABN.

Kilixons I have seen were used in an air handler to keep the fan running after the heat shut off just long enough for the duct to cool a bit. But I could be tottaly wrong. I think it is a brand name.

Klixon is a brand name of circuit breaker, heat sensor, fuse, made by Sensata. Not able to find the model number the OP indicated. Is it a circuit breaker or contactor or what? If it is a circuit breaker, there is a heater wrapped around the strips to keep them separate until power is removed so it can reset. That may be what the third leg is for.

A Klixon is an overload protector used mostly in fractional horsepower electric motors. It is usually mounted on the inside (not always) of the motor. It can be either manual resetable or automatic. It is generally made of black plastic...the manual resetable ones will have a red button on them. I've tried a google search, but haven't had much luck, so far.

I may have the one you are looking for. I have hundreds of them.
I will look and see. If I have it, I will get the schematic for you. The schematic you are looking for. Are you wanting to know were the wires go on the inside, or where they go after the wires leave the heater?



Travis


After thought...

I forgot to ask what this is for? Does it say on the motor how many amps it draws or is this in some kind of control box?

Travis .,

The OP mention automatic resetting OL thermal switch.

What size motor and brand name maybe something will ring the bell for me or other to click in their mind to speed up the answer.

Merci,Marc

Travis,
It goes on a swimming pool pump...A.O.Smith-3/4 hp-3450 rpm-230 volt-5.9 amps. If you have an internal drawing of this Klixon that would be great!!! I need to know what the three terminals go to internally.
