    I bought a rite farm 3600 last spring. It worked great until I left it to sit idle for a month and then tried to use it again.
    The machine powers on but only sends power to heating element if I set it to 104!
    Then it only heats to around 85..
    Anyone else have this issue?
    I'd be interested in your problems and how you resolved them.

    Geez, that is a real problem. I would suggest calling the number for the manufacturer...they usually have a number for consumers to call. Hope you can get it fixed asap. Good luck.

    Thanks. I am looking now at just replacing the whole thing. There is no manufacturer support.

    You can use the box and put in a new thermastat with a lightbulb and a small computer fan ...
    or just make your own.
