    I have a GQF 3015 heating element to replace the one I tried in my wine cooler bator.
    I tried a heating element from a styrofoam bator... not strong enough.
    I just need to know how much it can be stretched or recommendations?

    I can't find any info online as to installation requirements.

    Thanx in advance!

    It needs to be stretched to where none of the coils are touching but still look like coils.
