Question about Jenn-Air Ovens
My jenn air bake element stopped working--it actually had a hole that burned through it in one spot and looked like it was on fire. I purchased a brand new replacement element and installed it but it is still not working. I was wondering if the problem is with the way I reconnected the wires to the element--that the connectors (female part) have not fully received the prongs at the end of the burn element. The appear to be on snugly although I can remove them by hand. The old element connectors required pliers to take them off. Could it be that in order to get a proper "contact" the element prongs have to be forced in more, or is simply having the connector and prong together sufficient for contact.
If you believe I have them connected properly, what else could be the problem--perhaps the new bake element is defective? If so, how do I test for that?
At the family house we had an old counter top Jenn-air appliance and the connectors for the elements always burned until i put white sillicon grease on the contacts.This grease is intended to transfer the heat on transistors. Never had problem again.
