Question about Ovens
Very old GE oven D10401WH Serial SAD92118 doesn't properly. Seems to heat although the temp light isn't working on Broil. Heats minimally on Bake , I unhooked and tested the bake elelement (23 ohms). Testing voltage on the bake leads into the oven shows 121 volts on bake, 32 on timed bake and 240 on broil. Should the bake leads show voltage on broil? Do the different voltage levels indicate I have a power problem or possibly a switch problem? Thanks.
On these older ovens ther is usually always 120 volts on the elements at all times.
If you check across the element ends with it in bake you should read 240V. If not, there is a problem with the control. With the voltage drop you describe, it sounds like you are losing power on one line of voltage coming to the element.
Post back to let me know what you find out or if you have any questions.
