Question about Frigidaire PLEB30T8A Electric Double Oven
The top oven won't hold its temperature so I ordered a new probe/oven sensor. It is a different probe from what is in the oven now. A notice came with the part stating that I need to cut the quick connections and hardwire the new sensor using ceramic nuts. I can't pull the old probe out far enough to find the end of its wires. Do I REALLY have to remove the entire double oven from the wall to access the full length of the sensor's wiring?! Or can I cut the wires that are easily accessible and hardwire it with the new probe from there? Does the length of the probe's wire have an effect on the oven't ability to accurately regulate temperature?
Yes and no the reason they ask you to cut them is the lenght of the wire does affect some of the probes (thermistor) it reads resistence and the longer the wire the more it will read if you want it to be for sure your model is this type do it the right way and pull the oven if you want to cut it in place then try the oven like that if you are happy with the temps then leave it the reason the wire wont pull out the is a zip strap holding it in the wire bundle behind the back wall.Hope this helps
