The black stuff has become loose so the end connections are now slightly loose. The wire still looks good .Does anyone know what said black stuff is. Hight temp paint?

Its a hard black electrical insulating varnish, when newly applied its has a satin sheen to it but obviously will dull off with age. Readily available.

I am about to retro fit a heater with new fan I’ve bought from Blanchard.

When I stripped down the neater I saw the resistor for the first time.

My question is, what’s the wiring from the two way switch that was already in situ. I looks like I need to solder into a resistor?
