I was Inspired by Durham Appliance to compete with him in the market shares of Samuriai's profit, and prophet's of wisdom income producing Gadets.
This is my version of a dryer cycling thermostat (or whatever the proper name is) test device with instant temp feed back (+/- 10 deg). Not going to do a lot of typing the pictures tell the story will try to put them in sequence. May need admin help.
This has a built in high limit safety device, if you can't hold that plastic coffee can, no more (or it's melting, LOL) AND the meter has not changed from continuity to No continuity (my fluke meter displays ol, no continuity) THEN YOU MIGHT HAVE A BAD CYCLING THERMOSTAT.
IF you continue to hold on to it at that point THEN YOU MIGHT BE a CHEESE-DORK (up north term)
A REDNECK (down here in the south)
OH, that is a hair, blow dryer, not a heat gun, not an torch, or flame thrower. A blow dryer set on hot air.. lol
