By thermistor, I meant the little

Sorry to ask you this, it's such an elemental question...but you are soldering these connections, right? I'm referring to your mention of the reattachment of the yellow square, above.

I ask this because, when I did my first pack, I didn't see the need to solder the wires from positive tip to negative base. "Certainly just having them press together will be all the contact they require."

Wrong answer! I would guess there was too much resistance...and it didn't work.

Please accept my apologies if this doesn't apply, and you are soldering everything. Again, maybe a dumb question...but I'm trying to think of other potential possibilities to solve your problem.
