a used Origo
4500 dual burner electric/alcohol stove to install instead of the single
burner alcohol stove my sailboat came with. I am trying to get the electric
stove working before I cut a hole for it and it doesn't warm up. The wiring
inside seems fairly simple but there is one suspect piece I can't identify. At the upper right of the stove there is what looks like a push button but it won't push. Perhaps it's seized. This device has one hot wire going into it and two green wires out to the two burner knobs. The third connector on the device isn't used. The other hot wire goes to each of the knobs directly. When I test the device/switch thing with my multimeter it looks like there is no link between the two connectors that are used. From the picture on the bottom of the device it looks like it may be a momentary switch that toggles between the two outputs. I wonder if the device seized in an "off" position? Does anyone have one of these stoves working? Could they tell me what this device does on their system?
