Troubleshooting Tips:

1. If you connect the power supply directly to the “To Optional Accessory” plug, you bypass the thermostat and start heating the blanket.
DO NOT ATTEMPT IF DISH CANNOT BE REACHED SAFELY & DO NOT LEAVE THE POWER SUPPLY PLUGGED INTO THIS PORT AFTER TESTING!

2. The current power supply has a red light which only comes on when it is heating the blanket.

3. Previous power supply (with pigtail) has a green light when it is plugged into power, regardless of heating the blanket or not.

4. The previous power supply to those two was the transformer with the fuse.

5. The power supply will show about 26VDC out, even when it is not heating the blanket.

6. It is recommended to leave the power supply plugged in through the winter. If you only plugin before or after snow has collected on the dish, it can trip out due to excess power demand on a cold dish.

7. You can test the power output at the power supply and on the accessory port at the dish with a voltmeter.  Some power supplies are 18vac, while others are 24vac.
