basically what uve done paul is the equivalent of bypassing the thermal fuse
u never took the time to wonder WHY the THERMAL fuse had gone? and what its purpose was/is?
honestly, manufacturers spend millions per year in the development of these components. you should email them and save them a fortune
just another self modification post, and it should be noted that any engineer, on this site or anywhere do not recommend this, its both reckless and silly, the fuse is there for a reason .. please , think of this.. yes, your 'modification' works like a stat, the original fuse cuts out when a fault occurs, what if your fuse sticks in the on position, and a fault occurs?
yup the problem becomes inflamed, and COULD become a safety hazzard
incidentally, we got a memo from samsung, quoting that any modification, by ANYBODY, and that included the use of non samsung spares, would invalidate ANY guarantee, manufacturers or extended, and would definitely exhonerate samsung from ANY liability in any way shape form or manner
my question to you (and others, who thought it clever to attatch pc fans with duct tape and leave trailing wires) is.. is it really worth it for a few quid more?
i know the answer.. do you?
