We have a bad upper over broil element, was arcing. Upon taking apart I noticed the wire that attaches to the element and the limit switch was frayed and burnt, I disconnected the wire and taped up the other wire figuring the rest of the stove and cook top would work until the new parts are received. Upon reseting the breaker the nothing worked until you turned a cook top knob then the clock would come on but nothing gets hot. Would this limit switch being out of the loop stop everything from working? Also is the wire used between the element and the limit switch a special wire?
ANSWER Hello Bill. If the limit switch is out of the loop, the heating circuit will not work on the unit.
