Question about Tappan TEF242 Electric Kitchen Range
The bake element does not heat up some foil fell on it ,is it aburnt element or eoc problem
I'm just guessing here...
Heating elements are high resistance. If the foil fell on the element near where it inserts into its socket it could have short circuited the element. If there's a fuse in the heating element wiring it could have blown. I could not find an electrical diagram for this stove so I don't know if it has a fuse or not.
Also, depending on the wiring your thermostat or selector switch may have been damaged. Does the broiler still work?
