What is the DC resistance (in Ohms) for this bake element? I have a Magic Chef 3868XVW oven that periodically trips the circuit breaker, but the removed element measures 21 ohms, which seems about right to me.
ANSWER Hi Steve. The ohms for the bake element is supposed to be 20 ohms +/- 10 %. Ohm itself against the side of the element terminal to see if the element is grounded to itself. Is the terminal block wires cracked and partially shorting/ Is the clock assy. bake relay stuck on and shorted drawing too many amps tripping the breaker? Does the broil work and not the bake? You may need the clock part # 12001603. Thank you.
