So the oven is very slow to heat, and cannot get above about 365 degrees, regardless of how long it is running. I figured I might as well stress it out to break it. Self clean broke it allright, but it blew out the thermostat. So I put in a new thermostat, and put in a new electoignitor. Sparks really clean now, but the flam is pretty small on the burner, and still have the slow heat, low heat issue. .
I am now suspecting the sensor. I pulled it and put it on a multimeter - which I have no idea what I am doing! But on 200 ohms it reads 1. but if I put it on 2000 ohms it reads 1000, but on the weird little sideways triangle on top of the laying down cross, it reads 865 or so.
So before I throw big money at this am I on the right track? I hate taking stuff apart multiple times, just want to get it over with!
