Question about Heating & Cooling
The fan motor woun't come on but the ceramic plates still heat. The fan motor is function when indipendently hooked to a power source. There is a set of contacts just above the ceramic plates. When they are manually pushed togeter the unit operates fine. Is it safe to hard wire across the contacts and/or what is prohibiting them from automatically connecting?
The contact are just a set of points. If you can remove them, file or sand, or whatever will do the job, a little on the place where the contacts touch. Usually that's all it takes. Make sure when the switch is turned on the lever/spring assembly moves and at least tries to make them touch. I don't really see a problem with directly wiring the fan. The only drawback is there is no real control except pulling the plug.
