Hang on, I didn't read the instruction to set it to the appropriate element... I'll re-test!

I checked the tan wires and pressed a few of them in further behind the shield. Oh, my wise samurai this is NOT good... I couldn't find anything labeled Hi-Limit thermal switch, but I found this:

This is recent and when I tested the Upper Broil connections I had smoke and lights back there. Several of the wires were singed and the orange wire to the Lower Bake was burned through and through.

Any idea what caused it? Was it because I had the NB and L1 wires switched, or was it the original problem all along?

Do you know the part number so I can compare prices?

You are so wonderful. Thank you for your help! I hope you're around whenever I can get this part...

no, L1 and NB swapped wouldn't casue it...

may have been the problem all along, or when you were testing and "got a hell of a spark"

and "I had smoke and lights back there"

I can't find the part number, yet, but it's only $5 ... what do you want ?

I know, it's a cheap fix, halleluyah! But I was thinking that I could find it locally and pick it up today.

I'll do some searching for the part number (Range is old)

It may take you a few days to fix those Terminals/Wires ...

Time I have, knowledge I don't. Can I just cut back the burned part of the wires and replace the terminals? The one that's burned through and through, I guess I'll have to replace entirely?

yes, if it's long enough..

you may have to cut back to were the copper is not discolored from the heat.

the terminal block burned due to a loose connection. when the oven was installed the installer didnt properly tighten the power cord connection. these ovens dont have a lot of slack on the wires so if you have to cut the wire back to get to some good wire it most likely wont be long enough. find a local appliance parts store and see if they can supply you some high temp wire and ceramic wire nuts to extend the wires. the store should also stock the proper high temp ring terminal so you can terminate the wire to the terminal strip. if the power cord is damaged i dont recommend trying to repair its connections. its better to just buy a new cord. keep in mind during this repair that all of your connections must be clean and tight. if the connections are even a little dirty or loose, you will be plagued with repeat failures.
