Can I substitute a 2500 watt for a 2400 watt bake element? I'm sure the heat will work as that is controled by a thermostate - just worried about draw through the control? Anyone done this before? Is this standard practice?

that little difference (4 %) should be OK
Incoming voltage standards vary more than that
220v
230v
240v

Can I substitute a 2500 watt for a 2400 watt bake element?


May or may not. The only way to be sure is to bake several apple pies and several sweet potato pies, let's say 4 of each in an oven with the 2500 watt element and the same in an oven with the 2400 watt oven. Now this is the crucial part, they then must be overnighted to my office where we have a special and highly technical biomechanical method of testing for differences. Best of all, the testing is free of charge. As soon as we get your samples they will be rushed to the table.. i mean to the lab ...for testing. Highly recommended.
