    Wiring Problem??

    Warranty Claim? I don't think so! Not much I can do when your friend installs something and has no business doing so.

    Ist time in 45 years that I've seen that done. Usually they at least use crimp on terminals on solid tstat wire,,,,,,,,,,, Not cool!!!!!!!!!!!
    One way to outthink people is to make them think you think. They'll think you're not really thinking what you're trying to get them to think you think...........

    Really, what is the hole for?

    If you are not to use crimp on terminals, then how do you attach the wire?

    Arcing, I'm guessing

    Some spade connectors have a little tab on them with a dimple that mates with the hole

    Board looks far too dirty, simplistic and old to be a warranty issue anyway. Look at the realestate surrounding the terminals...looks like acres. With newer boards you'd be lucky to fit your needle nose around a LV terminal to yank off a stubborn spade connector.
