    There is a disk that brings on the fan when it gets warm. My stove almost always runs on low flame so fan never comes on.
    I thought it was a bad disk and bought another,same problem.
    Suggestions?

    1. Make sure the snapdisk in in contact with the stove body. Any air gap will allow it to cool & stay open.
    2. You can remove the snapdisk & jump the incoming & outgoing wires with a double (male, generally) spade connector, & use the switch to turn the blower on
    3. Turn the stove burner UP a little bit & control the burn with a wall thermostat or a remote...

    if you are still having troubles after following Bob's advice, you could get a lower disc, like a 120/10 vs 140/20
