CJ:

I am not getting any heat to my pitot heater. I turn it on, on the ground and it doesn’t warm up. I see the Volt meter go up about 1/8”. So I think it should be warming up. I don’t know where the CB or fuse is located either. Does anyone have any ideas on trouble shooting and locating the fuse?

Thanks!

SAM

The following topic link is for a -52, but may assist your fault finding.

For a -52 ... it could be the (parallel) chronometer heaters are causing the observed voltage change.

Key check is if the 'pitot heat on' warning light isn't illuminating then the pitot heater is open circuit.

Suggesting a heater element, or more likely a wiring connection, failure.

Hope this helps.
