Honey extraction (part 3)

I think I’ve found the electrical fault — looks like the heater element in the uncapping tray has died — possibly shorting neutral to earth. A quick check shows it to be in its eleventh year, so perhaps I can’t be too upset about that. What I can be upset about is the £46+P&P that the supplier wants for a replacement. Having removed the offending item it appears to be a standard 1.5kW kettle element so I shall be purchasing a new one from an electrical spares site for less than £15 all in. Finishing off will have to wait until that turns up.
