Woodcraft tire warmers. (where can I have them fix local?)

My front tire warmer has a bad connection.. sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.. if I move the wire around then it would come back on.

Anyone local in the houston area that can fix them? or do I have to send it out to woodcraft or something like that to have them fix?

Thank you for your help

Dunno how these work or what they look like, but if its just a simple two wire setup, couldn't you just find where the wire is burnt, cut, then solder a new wire from there?

that would depend on where the break is, if it is in the connection before the heating element, then yes... if it is on the heating element side cutting it and splicing it could change the impedance and cause it to burn somewhere else on the element, and fail again.

I have "fixed" them before by cutting open the cloth and soldering some new wire in, but by the end of the day there was another spot.... Once they start going they pretty much are trash, unless as mentioned it is not on the heating element side but it has always been heating element side for me, try sending them in would be sweet if they refurbish them or give a cheap rate on a new one!
