Help Food Dehydrator

Does anybody know how to disable the heating element on this sunbeam dehydrator. It does not have a temp setting just on and off

it looks like you can just remove the wire to the coil (the center piece). just follow the white wire from the coil and pull it out of the little box thingy that distributes electricity.

Do exactly what Paw said, I have that same dehydrator. I cut the two wires going to the coil and wirenutted the hot ends of the wires and whala. Works great if they arent very big fruits theyll dry in two days easy. I usually end up having to snip the real big caps off the stems to get them to sit in the shallow trays correctly, but other than that it works perfect.
