Yep, what that does is trick the system into thinking that the 
roaster is cool, so it keeps the elements on all the time....at the 
expense of any and all automated control or profiles.  Moving the 
yellow wired thermistor to the open portion of the wall bracket is a 
variation of that with the partial benefit of keeping 'some' profiles 
- it's basically cooling the thermistor a bit but putting it farther 
away from the heat source, thus letting/forcing the element to get 
and stay hotter.
