Question about Heaters
The wire from the off- low - high switch to the top of the element burned into. there are 2 small diode looking parts spliced into the wire this is where the problem happened.
what are these?
do i need them?
if so where can i get them?
The diode-looking parts sound like thermal fuses. Typical thermal fuses resemble a 22-caliber bullet with the pointed end colored differently from the body. If they have failed, an ohm meter or continuity meter will tell you. Yes, they are a safety feature which should be kept.
Try your local appliance parts/repair store. Take the old ones in to compare. You will also need some crimp-on connectors to attach them to the wire ends.
