Subject: Air Crazy Fan Modification
 

Modified my Air Crazy Popper to bypass the thermostat.  That works just fine.

I read somewhere that there is also a mod to wire the fan to the power so that the fan runs continuously when plugged in - the switch, therefore, controls only the heat.

Does anyone have details on how to perform this mod ?  Would greatly appreciate any help.

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.
