This is my first post to the forum, so please bare with me. I recently acquired an MES 30 from my father in law. He said that all it needed was some new wiring and some connectors.
I went ahead and drilled out all of the rivets holding on the rear cover and replaced some of the wire and the connectors going to the heating element. I put everything back together and fired her up. She came on and started to get warm. I started cleaning up the ridiculous mess that I had made. I turned around to check on it again, and it had shut off. No popped breakers. I pulled the rear cover and double checked everything. I got nothing. I unplugged it and plugged it back in, still nothing. I am by no means a master electrician, but I can usually stumble my way through most projects. Anybody have any helpful advice on the matter?
