Re: insufficient heat

I do beleive the heater element has reached end of life and need to be exchanged, you can contact the distributor in your area, or you can contact the manufacturer directly in Europe that will forward you to the nearest tech support center, do not forget to tell them where you live (city is enought) you have their contact in their webpage

Electric cord chipped power shorting, how do we fix it

You will need a wire stripper, solder, solder flux, heat shrink tubing, a heat gun (hair dryer will do) and a soldering iron.

1. Cut the cord where the chip is.
2. Strip the wire on both sides by about 1/8". You should have 4 exposed wires from the two wires inside the cord.
3. Apply some soldering flux to the exposed end.
4. Heat the exposed wires and apply solder. This is call tinning and will help when you are attaching the wires.
5. Cut the heat shrink tube about 1/2" long, you will need two. Insert the heat shrink tube to both wires that is to be soldered.
6. Solder the wires together by applying heat and attaching the wires when the solder melt.
7. move the heat shrink over the soldered area and use a heat gun to heat the tube. It will shrink and provide insulation as well.

**If you don't have soldering experience, you might want to take it to an experienced technician. Bad solder or poor insulation can cause expose wires and poses an electric shock hazard!

Heating problem

Sounds like the lid shorts the power or shuts it off, see if you can spot any faulty wiring. If you can't, you might try getting it to an electrician who should be able to solve it - but for $40 you could just as well get a new one.
