No, to bypass pid connect 12v directly to control leads of ssr.
To bypass ssr jumper 8ga wire from ssr ac input to ac output. You should have full power to element and measure 220v at connector to element. You should also have very low voltage drop across ssr.

One phase of 220v is controlled by ssr and the other phase is connected directly to element, correct?
