What's the resistance reading on this pt.# 279872.
Answer Hello David. If you test it with a resistance meter set to the proper scale to read up to 5000O, (or 5K.....same thing), This resistor should give a reading between 4050k and 4950k. 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
