I just traced the “extra” power line and all it is, is a plug thats plugged into an outlet with the cord run through a small hole in the cabinet with the black and white lines attached to the element. Basically each post of the element has 2 wires attached to it (both the same color but from different power sources, one set from the thermostat, one set from the cord from the powere outlet). It looks like it was a cord to something, maybe even an extension cord thats been cut and stripped then used as a power source for the element. All it says on it is 16/3 type sjo neoprene I unplugged the plug and the line went dead. I don’t think I even want to know how this all came about. But, like I said, the mind got to tickin and looks like the problem is solved. Any ideas now after the explanation what the hell this thing is/was? Thanks, greg
