I have been using my cooking oven and range for many years now and I never had major problems with it. One day I made a big mistake in trying to check why small sparks was coming out of one of the bigger 8 inch cooking element range.
I thought it was the problem with the connector located inside under the cooktop. So I unplugged the cooling element range and tried plugging it into another connector to see if the problem is with the cooking element range or with the connector itself.
"Poof", and another big sparks came this time but with black burned out connector. I could see the connector break into smaller pieces and I could smell burnt material. Luckily the smoke fire alarm didn't go off or else i could have alarmed my family. I quickly turned off the oven knob but now I noticed that the burner light is staying "ON" all the time, even though I had the oven cooktop knob turned to "OFF".
So now, I have got several parts of the cooktop oven range malfunctioning. Instead of simply replacing the oven cooking element, I messed up and ended up with two 8 inch cooking element not working at all. I needed those 8 inch cooking element range to work, so I could do my cooking. The other remaining 6 inch cooktop oven element are too weak to do any serious cooking. Sometimes it takes hours just to cook one dish item using those 6 inch cooktop element.
In short I am looking for an easy and cheap quick fixes for my cooking oven range. I do not wish to spend much money I hiring a repair guy to fix my cooking oven appliances. Anyone who had called a repairman for appliances would know how expensive their fees can be.
Sometimes, their repair fees is even more expensive than the parts, and at times, it is even more sensible to buy a new cooking oven range appliances. In my case I wanna give it a try to repair it on my own to save money. I know I will be spending money on the parts but at least I could save on the labour charge fees.
