Oven bake element staying on ..
Model Number: Fep210ewo Brand:
More than 10 years
I just replaced the lower bake element and I put the over on 250 and let it warm up, after abt 5 mins or so I looked in the oven and the element was still red hot. Then I turned the oven down to 100 and the element when down. I then put it on 400 and waited abt 10-15 mins, looked inside and the element was still red hot. Turned temp down to 250 and waited to see it the element would kick down and it looked like it did not ... I;m not sure but I think the element is not shuting down when it reached the temp. I am asuming this is how it should work ?? The element should cycle when it reaches the right temp ?? Could this be a bad temp control ?? also will this burn out the new element if not fixed ?? Please help .. any info ..thx How do I test the oven control .. temp sensor wire from the control ??
