Loose wire? Or normal

Hey guys, tried searching elsewhere and I couldn't find any answers.

I have an Empire RH-25-6 vent heater , and while trying to clear out some dust, a wire stuck to my duster and pulled out of the casing.

It was a slight maneauver, and I didn't have any resistance. My question is, is this wire supposed to be loose (the other end is plugged into something), or did I accidentally loosen it from wherever it was.

According to my manual, this would be the "electrode and wiring".

Thanks so much for any insight

    That's not normal but we live in an imperfect world. It's a bugger when the tech 'finds' the imperfections. Sometimes the home owner think they are getting hosed.

    I see. I live in an apartment and my landlord is a sleeze, so I wanted to verify anything was wrong with it before contacting him. Thanks
