Question about Microwave Ovens
Hello,Check the wiring harness from control to heating element, it may be having a contact with chassis (ground) somewhere.
Today's ovens come in two basic types: electric or gas. An electric oven uses large coiled wires inside that heat up in order to cook the food. There are two sets of these coils, one on the top and one on the bottom. These heating element heat up when electricity is sent to them. The bottom coil of wires is the one that cooks the food when you bake.
The dial on the oven controls an internal thermostat. When you turn it to set the temperature, a copper wire that leads to the cooking area is alerted to the temperature that you want. This wire serves as the temperature gauge, and it sends signals to the thermostat to turn on and off based on the temperature inside the oven. The top heating coil is the broiler. This coil will heat to high temperatures very quickly. It does not have a temperature control like the coil on the bottom. It will heat to its highest possible temperature and stay there until you turn it off.
wish you good luck,
