Sometimes the wire just gets old and, is not as bright but, if the wires are not black the next fix is:
there is a resistor at the end of each "calwire" (heating wire) each resistor is identical.
after time they produce more or, less resistance. so that one side gets hotter than the other side radio shack sells the resistors. please, remember to remove power before you attempt to fix.

    if you have one use a multimeter set to "ohms" to check the resistor and, wire resistances; the wall plug to the module need not be checked if it checks the same on both sides replace the module.

Hi, the element on one side is faulty that's why it does not heat properly any more.

Two big parts to this problem:

1) Where can you find a replacement element? I've been looking high and low but so far no luck in finding a source. Only possibility is to find another used toaster oven for parts. In my case, the element is 3/16" by ~10" and is wired as two elements in series, making it a 60v element.


2) The element connections are usually spot-welded. I assume regular (low temp electrical) solder, besides containing lead, might risk melting. I've read one mention of using silver solder, as you would in copper pipe fittings, but I'm not sure this would avoid melting. My guess is that it would, but that's just a guess. I can also imagine using wire wrapping to make the electrical connection and maybe this could even give a solid mechanical connection.

A toaster oven not only makes toast but can also heat food. Most toaster ovens allow you broil or bake food. Many of the problems that happen to a toaster oven occurs because of the heating elements, the thermostat or the power cord. Read on to learn how to fix a toaster oven.
Things You'll Need:

  • Volt-ohm meter
Unplug the toaster oven and let it cool before you test it or make any repairs.
Pull the side panels away from the toaster oven.
Inspect the elements on your toaster oven for damage and corrosion. Clean the dirty or corroded terminals. Test each element with a volt-ohm meter set on RX1. Your meter should read 10 to 18 ohms. Be sure to test both sets of elements separately. If your elements aren't working properly, replace the faulty elements.
Check the timer on your toaster oven for continuity with a volt-ohm meter set on RX1. A good timer will show infinity when the timer is off and a zero ohms reading with the timer on. If your toast timer is faulty, your bread won't toast to its desired color. If the timer is not working properly, replace it.
Clean your toaster oven. If your broiling rack slides poorly, your oven walls are probably dirty. Some ovens link a rack with the door, so that the rack slides forward when the door is opened. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations concerning lubrication. Clean your oven by shaking out all the crumbs and wiping the crumb tray with a damp cloth. Wash the walls of your oven with a rag filled with hot soapy water.
Monitor your cooking times carefully until you understand how your oven behaves. Oven temperatures may not match the dial settings exactly.
Check the power cord and plug of your toaster oven to make sure it is not frayed or broken. Replace your plug or cord if it appears damaged.
Tips & Warnings
  • Refer to the owner's manual on your toaster oven for general repair advice.

How to fix my saab heated driver seat that gets too hot


As the heater elements get older the parts of them can break down, when this happens the overall resistance reduces so more current passes through the existing elements, causing those left to get hotter.
If left they will burn out completely, there is also a possibility they could damage the upholstery or even catch fire.

I replaced fuse, high limit thermostat and thermal cut off, still heater does not cycle on and off, just gets hotter and hotter., is this the thermistor or something bigger?


I would first check to see if the heating element is shorted out. When the vent or blower housing of the dryer get built up with a lot of lint the dryer won't vent out the heat properly and it can cause the heating element to warp and short out against the cabinet. To check for a shorted element you should unplug the dryer and remove the bottom panel. On the right side you will see the heating element, remove the two wires that connect to the element. With a multi-meter, check to see if you have continuity from either side of the element to the cabinet that hold the element. You should NOT have continuity when you check for this, if you do the element is shorted out and will need to be replaced. You can also pull out the element and do a visual inspection, sometimes you can see where the element coil is touching the housing. When the element is shorted out, it will continue to heat when the dryer isn't calling for heat. They will even heat with the dryer not running, so make sure to unplug it for safety reasons.

Baking element will not turn off when I hit off switch. Element gets hotter and hotter.


You have a short somewhere. Since the element seems to get hot, it is either the thermostat or the switch.

My hotpoint cooker blows the mains fuse when the oven gets hot


If it is a fan assisted oven, and the fan is working o/k, then it is probably the oven element insulation resistance thatr is breaking down as it gets hotter, so probably requires a new element fitting.
The element is located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover.

Dishwasher water never gets hotter than hand hot even when


This sounds like a bad heating element. Or possibly a wire leading to it has broken or come off. You can check the resistance of the element with a multimeter set to ohms. A faulty element will read zero or overlimit or infinity. Good luck

Will I get power to both elements at one time I test power at elements while unit is heating and can only get power to one element at a time.When one thermostat cycles off the other element will come on.I...


You are correct. That is the way most of the two eliment  water heaters work, one eliment at a time. Make sure that the two thermostarts are set at the same value. Have you tried just making the water hotter, so that the hot water will not be used at such a fast rate, when mixed with the cold? Also draining the sediment from the bottom of the tank with increase the water capacity,of course.

Electric oven too hot


difficult to see what you have done here! can you come back with some info: do you have an earth trip fitted in your consumer unit? how many wires are fitted to the element? did you touch any other wiring except those connected to the element?
