Yes, I was only joking. I assumed the smiley would convey that fact.

I do NOT endorse dry firing your heater element.

Seriously, I wonder if most of these failures are the result of amp draw on 220 vac elements? Or is it equal opportunity? I only use a 110 vac 1500W in a RIMS tube. I'm scared now. I have the alarm working to de-activate the signal on overshoots, but that doesn't do any good when the SSR is not answering the phone.

Oh you installed those all wrong. It's going to break as soon as you try to brew on it. Do you have a picture of the entire CP internals?

I don't have one with all the latest additions that I did to it. Will snap one later. It ain't pretty.

I recently added a float switch to my kettle to cut the SSR control signal when the liquid level is too low, a toggle to bypass the float (that's part of some future plans I have for this thing), and now these fans. I haven't completed the wiring on the fans because they need as 12VDC power supply. I tested that they worked with a wall-wort, and now the plans are to install that wall wort inside of the panel.
