Hi, Longtime lurker first time poster. Please be nice.
I recently upgraded my BK to include a 2000w 120v Rhemm LD heating element. I used a PVC coupler and JB weld to secure and protect the wiring of the element.
My question is on the warmth or rather the Heat that the power cord is putting off. I used 12/3 SJOOW and 12 guage ring terminals to wire the element. Right at the point where the cord goes into the PVC structure the cord gets fairly hot. I was just testing it today after 20 mins of being on it was over 100 degrees. The rest of the cord feels pretty normal. Should I be concerned about this?
I'm wanting to add another element and some control to my kettle but I'm worried that I might burn my house down. Please help!
