Question about Ovens
We've lived in our house 15+ years, have no clue when prior owners put in this electric wall oven. The problem we're having is with the temperature, it likes to raise in the middle of baking.
It could be the 'stat. It could also be an intermittent element. With the unit off, inspect the element...they even come out with one screw. If it looks damaged, replace it. You can trick the element into seeing if it is intermittent. With the door open, start the oven. After a bit, the element should glow. It should not shut off with the door open and the temp set to 350. Do this for 10-15 minutes to test. If the element passes, see below. REMEMBER...touch nothing with the power on. There are TWO linked breakers for stoves.
About the thermostat...You don't say what type of unit you have. There are several types. Yours is probably a mechanical type which has a long metal bulb about the thickness of a pen refill which goes back to the main circuit. You can see the tube in the top of the oven area snaking out the back. If you can see it and trace it out, you can change it yourself. Make sure you have disconnected all power. Electric ovens operate on 220 volts and that can kill. Get the new unit, make sure it matches the old one. Unclamp the old one, install the new one. Tighten screws securely.
