Ok, upon going through the testing and checking the last (motor) test, it seems that's the problem, it sits at max when everything is plugged in like he has it. MANY thanks, I don't know if this is kosher, but is there any kind of donate button? I have to believe you guys saved me a ton of money.
As an aside, can you tell me kind of what's going on? It spins, but no heat. Am I not understanding how the components relate? I guess I would have assumed that if there was a problem with the motor nothing would have been working.
