Oven overheated;needed new thermostat
After unplugging the stove, we removed the metal behind the thermostat. We took a digital picture of the wires connecting the thermostat before we disconnected them. Then from the inside of the oven, we popped off the button that secures the thermostat wire and unscrewed the bracket holding the sensing bulb in place. We threaded the bulb through the hole in the back. We had been advised to be very careful with the new sensing bulb, so we were kind of nervous when we threaded it back into the stove and secured it to the bracket. We replaced the button and used our photo to connect the wires on the new thermostat. Although it was a costly part, we were glad to have saved the cost of a repairman, and the oven actuallly works!
