Testing Range Elements
TESTING THE PLUG-IN SURFACE ELEMENT
1. Set the ohmmeter to the R x 1 scale. 2. With the element removed, touch the meter leads to ends of the prongs.
The meter should indicate the following (approximate ±20%) resistance for the indicated element:
8 ” Element = 18 – 20 Ω
6 ” Element = 30 – 33 Ω

TESTING AN OVEN TEMPERATURE SENSOR
1. Set the ohmmeter to the R x 10 scale.
2. Touch the meter leads to the plug pins (see the illustration).
The meter should indicate approximately 1100 Ω at 75 ˚F. For resistances at other temperatures, refer to the chart below.
NOTE: The readings are approximate.
A paraffin base, non-gumming, high quality lubricating oil for motors, blowers, linkages, pumps, etc. For both normal and high-speed bearings. Withstands high temperatures. Telescoping pullout spout. 4 ounce bottle.

Appliance Repair Wiring Diagram
A wiring diagram is a convenient way of showing which components are present in an appliance, and how those components are connected together electrically.
Just as a road map helps you to get where you’re going, a wiring diagram helps you follow current flow and identify problems.
It is important to realize that wiring diagrams, or “schematics,” identify electrical connections and current flow, but they do not represent actual locations, distances apart, or component placement (unless noted on the drawing). Nor are they drawn to scale.
They do tell you what components are used and how the electricity should flow.
Dryer Vent Fires
Dirty dryer vents are the number one cause of all household fires!
Don’t let it happen to you!
It’s easy to prevent a dryer fires.
Simply clean out the lint build up in your dryer and vent.
We recommend that you clean the lint from your dryer and vent twice a year.
If you don’t know how to take your dryer apart to clean it just ask us by starting a new topic in our forum.
