QUOTE (Richard Johnson @ 22 Feb 2014, 14:49) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>*** Tom, being a very old mains power controller, to be up front about it - and I do not want to offend but:

(1) It is a dangerous device to fiddle with in that it is metal cased and an error in working with it may well result in some risk of electrocution.

(2) It is such a simple device internally that to be honest, if you need a diagram to fix it you should probably NOT be the one fixing it!

(3) It is bad enough that it is already so far below current safety requirements that it could never be officially "sold" today - but think - if you are not qualified, but work on it and it later catches fire, guess what the insurance company will say.

I am not one to harp on about safety, but some things just aren't worth it.

+1 totally what Richard said - chuck it and stay safe - it just isn't worth it
