The element in the oven does not get power. The control panel display shows 100 degrees and does not go up. Is there a switch that I need to replace? The control panel seems to be OK as I can set the desired temperature and it comes back to 100. But as the element does not get power, the displays remains at 100 degrees.
ANSWER Hi Dana. On the top of the unit to the lt. of the blower fan, there is a thermostat that may have opened and cuts the circuit to the element. You will need to quickly bypass the thermostat 2-wires together and tape them w/electrical tape (safety). If the element works now then I would also consider changing the oven sensor part # 316217002. If this thermostat has opened, it has had an over temp. issue. This weakens the oven sensor. Now test the element to see if it has opened. Part # 318255006. You will get 240 vac to the element during a bake command. You will need to unhook one side of the wires at the elmt. and insert the meter leads there to test. Be very careful. The elmt. usually ohms between 18-28 ohms on the ohms scale. Meter part # WB27T10549. Thank You.
