Hi, I'm not sure which wire(s) to snip to disconnect the heating element but keep the fan working.

I can open the casing further by removing another set of screws if anyone thinks they'd like to see more of the insides. Thanks!

u should be ok with cutting any of the white or red, because it looks to me that the power to the fan is blue... those 3 wires look like they just power the heating. Its hard to say without being there but i think you will have to a) cut the red and white b) try to keep the black connected because alot of the time the same black wire is used for the ground on the entire circuit. Im not too sure tho, Id go for the red and white

The knob on the left is the variable temperature control.

The square-ish white cord is half of the power cord connected directly to the wall outlet. The black cord that I snipped was one of the ones coming out of this cap. It went straight to the temperature control. The other black ord goes directly to the fan's motor.

I snipped the black cord between where it was initially fed power and where it ties into the temperature control system.

You don't want it any hotter than room temperature. Just disconnect the heating element.
