I have read about the mod you mentioned, the fan running when plugged in. I am not sure how to do this. But, I read of another mod that provides slightly more control over the heat for the crazy air. I have not done it myself, but have been thinking about doing this.
You can install a dimmer switch to control the heat. It sounds as if all you need to do is remove the wires from the thermostat that you pried off for the by-pass mod. From here you just need to attach those wires to the light dimmer switch.
I found this information on the forums on sweet Maria's under the Air Roaster section.
