Loss or intermittent heat 

Splinter

Please verify that your Splinter fails to work on multiple mod boxes if you have access (borrow a friends).  This will help to ensure the Splinter in making contact with the mod box .   Be careful to not over tighten the Splinter as this can crack the wood surround.  If you are sure that it is getting power and still have no heat, please complete the form below for further assistance.

 Milaana

Please unsure that the battery is making touching both the contact down in the battery hole and the copper.  With the battery installed, look to see that there is no gap between the battery and the contact.  Light pressure on the copper should flex the battery contact like a small spring.  If it is not making contact, use a bent paper clip to bend the contact back into position.  Ensure that the toothed washer is installed between the copper battery hatch an the thumb screw is tight.
