Within the scope of the drift ......

Why a make / break thermostat why not a resistance reostatic rotory switch ? I haven't taken an electric stove apart but it doesn't seem like they have the make or break switches and a hot plate doesn't ..... Maybe the oven does ......... Don't know , again I haven't taken one apart . Seems to me that a regulated fixed but adjustable input would be more stable than an on/off input where it's all or nothing .

Electricity isn't my long suit , I have just enough knowledge to get in way over my head and burn things up .

Just melt the lead out from the spout mounting hole and re-stake or tack back in.. Yes, attaching electronics to anything 800F is stupid.

Danny, obviously I don't know if there is something broken or if the spud (not sure of the proper name) is dirty. But, if you haven't you might try what I had to do. Mine started leaking badly and I took it apart and used copper boy on it the hole and spud and that stopped the leaking. It's working fine (for now).

Considering that they are probably paying $8.50 each total for the complete units in China,
they ought to give you a whole new unit for shipping.

Good reasons to avoid buying the new Chinese junk from either of them.

Glad I have an older, US-made RCBS unit. Has never given me any trouble.
