My replacement heater plate from FP came with 2 large O rings, which are mentioned in the manual section 9.12.10, which says:

'Be careful of the two large ‘O’ rings which seal
between the motor assembly and heater plate and the
heater plate and tub, these and the tub sealing area
must be clean and put in the correct place before
reassembly takes place.'

When I install the rings, is a lubricant needed?

Lubrication is mentioned for the drain hose O-ring, which I assume should be silicone grease or whatever plumbers usually use, but it isn't mentioned for the heater plate.

Thanks,

Joe

just use some dishwashing liquid

i usually reuse the old ones if they are good as they are already compressed ,

the new ones are hard to install so a lot of effort is required , that should really really really hard

Dishwashing liquid?  Wow!  Thanks!

I do have the old o-rings, sounds like I should try them first, though.

I called Fisher Paykel yesterday before installing the new o-rings with the new heater plate.  They said no lubricant was necessary.  So I put 'em in that way, reassembled the unit and it leaked at the big o-ring right at the locking ring clip.  Lucky for me I was under the unit with a flashlight running diags for just that reason, so I cut the fill and immediately killed power.   The wiring cover was in place so it would've filled up with water and probably toasted my top drawer.

Dried everything, took it apart, turned the tub upside down and loosened the locking ring, o-ring looked fine, rotated it 180 degrees, this time the leak was worse and in the same place.  Now I've learned my lesson and the wiring cover is off.   I was about to post again here and maybe even call a service man, but this sounds like just the info I need.

Thanks again!

Joe
