My replacement element back bracket does not have a hole for the screw to attach the thermostat. Can I just put the bracket for thermostat behind the bracket for the broiler element and use it to hold the thermostat?
ANSWER Hello Jon, You did not provide a valid model number for your oven so I'm not sure if you have an electronic oven control or a mechanical oven control. The broil element is simply mounted to the back of the oven using two screws. Just attach the wires and mount it. Regarding the "thermostat", are you talking about an oven senser or capillary tube? An oven sensor usually has a bracket that is used for mounting. A capillary tube usually mounts with a clip. You should NOT mount the capillary tube or oven sensor to the broil element bracket. If you can get back to us with a valid model number, we can likely help you further. Hope this helps!
