Unfortunately, the link you sent is for my part, but it is discontinued and unavailable (as it is for every appliance part site i've searched). My electrical IQ is pretty low, and I haven't figured out how to test the potentionmeter with my low-end multimeter. I know the switch is bad because I could smell it burning when it stopped working. You can see the scorch marks on the board of the second part wired to the potentiometer (the insulation on the blue wire even melted a bit). So I'm still wondering if there is a way I can wire the fan with a simple on/off toggle switch so that it runs at full power when on.
