Here's the wiring diagram for a second element with an ON/OFF switch, if that's what you wanted.



And here's the wiring diagram for adding a second element without an ON/OFF switch.  This isn't how I wired mine but this is what was in the mods section on the old Susan Minor site.

Thanks TedE. That is how mine looks. I may have to check the fuse or it is possible I do have a bad "new" element. It  was from 4 or 5 years ago.

If you have a multimeter it is easy to check for a bad element.  A good one will read around 27-32 ohms.

Good:



Bad:

Checked both elements and readings are same. Checked the original in line fuse and got no reading,checked the "added" in line fuse and had  reading so I ordered a new original in line fuse and will replace that. Should take care of it. Will let you know when done.
