    client ofmine is a pub. he's got these carvery warmers. every month one or 2 go down. either burnt out switches or spade terminals fried. sometimes the connector block where the feed cable connects. can't understand why they fail so often. only a 2.2kW element.

    Where heating elements are involved, the switch is often the weakest link......at least he’s now got plenty spares!

    the chinese ones, funnily enough, seem to be of better quality that the ones i got from wholesalers. maybe those were made in north korea by dogs before they were eaten.
