Thank you for answering my question yesterday about trying to locate the thermal limiter switch. I have already taken the back off the stove three times and have serched to find the switch location with no results.It apparently is not where the drawing shows it. On my model, is it possible the switch is in a different location - or - could my model have a different type of switch or fuse or protector to look for? PS - This problem all started when I replaced my burnt out bake element(purchased from your company). After I installed it, neither the bake or broiler element would heat up - leading me to believe leading me to believe I had a blown fuse or a bad thermal limiter (per your drawing and phone contacts for help) Thanks so much for any help you can give me!!!!

ANSWER Hello Dennis. The only other location is under the cook top panel of the unit. You can raise the cooktop to saee if it is located there.
