I jumpered the connector on the dryer, and the fan reluctantly started...made some grinding and clicking for the first 5 seconds, and now runs great and strong. The connectors were quite corroded, so I cleaned them with a razor blade, so hopefully that will correct the issue. Something tells me it will not, though.

We shall see. I've got a new temperature switch with the lower temperature version (Red top -- 100C fan on, 110C cut compressor version)

I may test on full speed when I tackle that, most likely over the weekend.
