Question about Kitchen Ranges
U are going to need to replace the thermostatic control for the upper oven and the heating element as well, most likely the heating element is going out and has damaged the thermostat, the connections sound like they were burnt or heat damaged, this always requires a new part, any local appliance parts store can supply these parts or order them for you.here are te general instructions on how to replace the ovens heating element.
Instructions Things You'll Need:
Place a sign on your breaker panel stating that you are working on the electric.
Be sure that the oven has not been used in a while and that the element is completely cool.
Now, pull the bake element out of the oven wall. There will be wires attached to each "leg" of the bake element.
Note: There is usually not much wire to work with, so do not pull too hard. Once you have about 4 or 5 inches of wire exposed, place a piece of black electric tape over the wire at the point where it enters the oven. This will help keep the wire from falling back inside the hole.
Next, push the wires back through the holes in the rear of the oven until the bake element is back in position. Use the screws to secure the new element in place.
You may notice some smoke coming off of the element as it heats up for the first time. This is OK, as these are just oils burning off of it. The smoke will stop in a few seconds.
