I have an old RCA Whirlpool wall oven and need a new bake element. The model number is RLE25E5 and the SSN is M-41158. The mounting bracket width is 19 1/8. The current element may be a replacement and is 15 inch deep by 22 inch wide. It looks like part 326793 would fit. Hope you can help. Thanks
Answer Hello Jeff,
You will most likely have to contact someone who deals with antique appliances. The model number will not even pull up so we cannot look up the correct part for you. You could also carry the failed element with you to an appliance parts store and try to match it up side by side. We apologize that we do not have the resources to assist you but if you are able to locate the part number, we can sell it to you if we carry the part.
Lower Bake Element does not get hot. I measured 27+ Ohms at the element and measured voltage going to it. ??????
Answer Hello Jim. If you tested at the element, and there was 240 volts there, then you need to order and replace the element. If there was low voltage, then the control is most likely the issue with 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
