My MES quit working during a smoke and lo behold, one of the connector was fried. I cleaned off the element and it seems like its in good condition. The question I have is rather then getting another wiring connector, can I just solder the wire directly to the element and heat shrink it? Would that lessen the chances of failure in the future or should I just use the same wiring connection? I guess if it doesn't work, I'll order a new heating element and use the supplied connection. Would wiring upgrade be worth my time as well just to be safe? Any input would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
