Origo alcohol/electric troubles
I am the ''current owner'' of an Origo 110 volt AC and Non-Pressurized alcohol stove; old style 4500(rotating knobs). When I wired it up, I found one electric element would not heat up. To diagnose further, I swapped the controls (repairing a cracked connector) and found that now both elements will warm. Initially the stove will heat about 1 minute & then the GFI opens. Reset, it lasts about 30 sec; next 10 sec; then immediate. Both circuits, alone & together. Any ideas? My E-Mail to Origo is unanswered...
