Yes, has to be the favourite. Even when it starts it only runs on two
pots for the first few seconds. Grounding the connector runs the fan, but I
haven't heard it run on its own for ages. I've now got the thermoswitch
suspended in a fan oven with leads coming out to a multi-meter -it still
switches, but I think at a much higher point than the specification 85C.
I'll try replacing it.
