I think you would have to cut it out and re-connect the wiring from either side of it  to match the required wiring schematic - not done it myself but if you can trace the wires from either side of the cut-off device I reckon I could tell you how to re-wire it - you would need some confidence with working with mains voltage wiring though.

I traced the wires once, they head into the control board. I assume the logic is coded in a chip on that board and cannot be easily changed. Bypassed? Perhaps, but I wasn't brave (or smart) enough to rewire the switch. Instead I got lucky and my power switch sticks, and when it is stuck in and doesn't pop back out, the auto-off is bypassed!

Lol - well that's fixed it!

What I meant by tracing the wires is both from the mains plug AND from the other side of the control board to the heating element, pump, buttons etc. The wiring inside these machines is about as simple as it gets so I'm confident it can be done but without one in front of me it's not easy to set out specific changes.

If the button ever stops sticking we can always have another go :)

If the power remains on when the momentary button is stuck, I'll bet you could just put an SPST toggle switch in parallel with the momentary switch.  With the toggle switch open, the timer and front panel switch would function normally.  With the toggle closed, the machine would stay on bypassing the timer.  You could probably find a micro toggle switch that would fit in the hole where the 3 way solenoid used to be and access it from the bottom where the tube was on the old machines.  I think it's the same housing with the hole plugged, probably with a plastic spacer.

Ah this is great news, fed up with setting a timer and coming back to the machine every 8 mins!
I take it if this works, we could use a wifi plug adaptor for auto on in the mornings  8) 8)
