Does the bake and broil elements have to cycle to bake properly in this oven?

The tech sheet would have this info. Should be located in an envelope taped to the back of the range.

Are you getting a full 240vac to the bake element?

Cycling is done through the mechanical/capillary thermostat

No techsheet or diagram on this one. The lady involved got it at an auction and troubleshot it herself. I am friends with the brother in law and she asked if I would put in the parts,(thermostat and bake element). I did and I'm wondering if I am going to regret it. According to her, the original problem was, the oven thermostat would not go off, so she was turning it off and on with the breaker. Then the bake element became a sparkler one day, and she decided it needed to be repaired.
She called me back the other day because she said the oven temp was way to high. I checked it and, yes it was to high. I adjusted the thermostat dial(screws and plate on back of the dial) and now it seems to be about 25 degrees off. It turns on at 200 and turns off at 250.
I just wanted to no if the broil element works in tandem with the bake on this unit. When I went back the broiler element was hanging kind of low and was not working. I don't think they do, but with no wiring diagram, I don't know.
To answer your question Samarai, yes I do have 240v.
I thank you all for whatever comments or inqueries you may have,(except maybe dumba s you don't do favors for friends and family). Have a great and prosperous day.

This is within the allowable variance. This problem is solved.

I just wanted to no if the broil element works in tandem with the bake on this unit.


On many ovens, they'll fire both elements during preheat for quicker and more even heating of the oven cell.

When I went back the broiler element was hanging kind of low and was not working.


Check element resistance. If you get something in the K-ohms, M-ohms, or open, replace it.

I believe it is repaired, at least the bake. The customer doesn't care about the broil. I appreciate your reply.
