Hi, I'm looking at a fix for the thermal fuse now, and the thermal fuse is pretty old school now apparently - I've been told that a Microtemp thermal fuse is now the way to go.  I can get one of these really cheap of ebay, and they will do temperatures up to 275 degrees Celcius, which is right in the correct range, and it should solder right onto the heater plate no probs.

The cost is all of about $US4, + postage, which beats buying a new heating plate.

Does anyone have any thoughts on using a Microtemp thermal fuse?  i.e. any specific issues which will prevent me from using this?

Thanks
