In my limited knowledge of electronics, there must be a short somewhere 
and its overloading the electrical appliances to the point where they 
melt.

        you might smile with my ignorance, however I must report that I 
used the half moon relay as described in the 'how to Articles' page, 
and the switches just get very hot with 18 V - 6 Amps.  They get so hot 
to a point that their plastic parts melt down. The grease I used on the 
half moon disk and relays gets so hot that it burns and when I open the 
hatch of the tank it smells like a burnt hamburger! I then replaced 
them with brass switches, but they still get hot.
 What am I doing wrong?
