My oven won't preheat. Will this stop it from doing so? The upper element works but the lower doesn't. I replaced the sensor and element already.
Answer Hello Chester! Yes, the hi-limit thermostat 71001844 can stop the oven from heating. You will also need to check to make sure that you are getting the proper 240v to the bake element. If you are not, you will need to check the wiring and the electronic control 71003424. You can test these with a multimeter TJMA-DM1. Here is a link you can refer to for help with using a multi meter: http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
