Whirlpool Oven Unit: Boiler element working, baking does not. Pulled out bottom element and left hand wire burned off at connector. Unit tripped breaker. Is it a bad element or some other issue that caused short, and now what do I do about hte burned connector. Thanks for your help.
You will want to check the resistance of the element to make sure that it is good. The resistance should be approximate 28.8 ohms. If it has proper resistance then the part is good. If not then replace the element. The connector can be replaced with a high voltage 1/4" female spade terminal.
Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
My brother cleaned my oven and now nothing heats, both lower and broiler don't work. Sounds like its working but no heat.
Answer Hello ray,
You will want to check the thermostat to make sure that it has continuity. If not then the thermostat is bad. You can check the control with the oven turned on you should get 240 vac between bake and L1. If you are not getting voltage then the control is bad.
