Question about Ovens
The baking element in the oven does not work and when the dial
is set for "bake" the "broil" element comes on. Everything else in the
oven and on the stove top work fine.
Have unplugged the unit and reset it, replaced the fuses, ensured that
the knobs were positioned correctly.
Can you suggest what might be the problem, is it just the baking element or something with the electronics in the panel ? The oven is 17 Years old
It sounds like a problem with the selector switch. You have to remove the back panel to get to the back of the switch in the head unit, and find what wire goes from there to the bake element. With a meter set on 240ACV, or whichever setting is on yours that's HIGHER than that i.e. 400ACV, with the red probe on the terminal and the black one going to ground, see if you are getting 210-240 through it. If so, then it's either a faulty neutral wire connection (the other wire coming out of the element) or the selector switch. Hope this helps.
