I have a broiler element that is no longer heating. I pulled the element and checked it with a multimeter - seems to be reading 2 ohms. Next I pulled the thermal fuse (3196548) and checked it - 0 ohms. What should I try next?
The warming drawer stopped heating up a while back but this was a minor inconvenience - we had only used it twice in as many years but losing the broiler is more of an issue.
ANSWER Hello Bob. 2 ohms is not good on the element. Test for 240 volts to the element. If it is there, replace the broil element in the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
