Nice site!

I don't have a clue how I came here to it.

You're missing steps and including unnecessary steps in this instruction. As well, you don't give a source for replacement warming plates. You might want to consider a rewrite.

Before removing anything, do an in circuit resistance of those two small copper colored cylinders with a black end.

They are thermal fuses, and should have in circuit resistances close to zero.

Their placement is important, especially the one under the silver support bracket.
