In Nov., 1970, my heat cable broke at the control. The local Chevy dealer  
repaired it that way and it has worked without problems since. The only 
problem  is that they charged me for a new cable assembly ($2.70) and just 
repaired  the old one. I didn't find that out until years later.

A  few have responded that you can rebend the broken wire and put a new  
on it.  If you do that you won't get full travel of the cable and  you won't
get much heat.
Remember the cable at half travel just gives  you cold air from the top of
the turkey roaster thru the 3" hose.  It  is only the last half of the 
that opens the heat flapper.
