    I didn't run a multimeter over it. I removed the thermostat and had it connected live and neutral only. Let it get to about 200C then switched off and let it cool down. Connected groynd wired and switched it back on, didn't trip the breaker this time. Yahoo

    Glad you got it running.

    If it happens again, have a look around for an isolation transformer to use to get it hot then you can disconnect it.

    I'm in Brisbane south side, so if you get stuck, feel free to harass me. I know enough about electrical stuff to get me out of trouble and not electrocuted

    Mate had a MC. He used to warm it up on a genny, then plug it into the mains.
    Hooroo.

    That's another way of doing it, most generators don't have earth leakage units fitted.
