if you wired it with electrodes the way you're supposed to, i dont see how it could have broken, but anyway, reguarding fans and aerosols, just use a smaller fan on a post mount, there is a pic of one inside a chamber on burntlatke.com under the build section

hm, i dont know, alot of the axe might stay on the fan, you could always tap a hole in the chamber with about 1/4" NPT (double wall) and spray your fuel in, then put in a 1/4" pipe plug
