It is still pretty chilly here in the northeast so I run the stove from the time I get home until the next morning. Anyway, yesterday the stove fires up normally and I go about my business. About 1/2 hour or so later I walked into the living room and notice the smell of hot metal then I notice that heat is coming out of the stove but not being forced out (no convection fan). So I open the side door and jiggle the purple wires on snap disk #1 and I get sporadic fan operation. I shut the stove down and let it cool (the lid was almost too hot to touch). I cycle the stove on again and monitor snap disk #1 with a multimeter (checking for continuity). The snap disk "snaps" as expected when the stove warmed up and maintained a circuit. This leads me to think that the connector on the purple wire is bad. The stove was new this past fall (11/07), and ran fine all winter. Questions: Are bad wire connectors a normal problem with Quad 1200's? Can anyone think of a reason why I couldn't just clip the wires near the blade connectors and replace them? Should I just contact my dealer and let them take care of it (warranty)?
