MAINTENANCE 0000 : panasonic EH30P hotpot teardown
My hotpot seem to be a little dirty, and so it has to go under the screw driver for a bit ...
|high quality connection spades|
|all that heat convection stains inside the plastic shell. the water channels require a very flexible pipe brush (<10mm) to get inside.|
|3 years in operation, slightly scarred PCB (3P6MH SCR @3A)|
|the pot welds are really superb|
|full power, in operation. by wrapping the|
pot in a regular T-shirt, heat is further
conserved to reduce power draw
@20ct/kWh, a full pot boil takes about 5cts
power cycle :
ON - full boil (750w) - idle (12w) - reach selected temp (12w~130w warm~idle cycle)
with a fabric cover, the unit dwells in idle (12w) for a longer time than in the 130w state.
