This part acts like a safety thermostat on the appliance. Once it reaches a certain temperature it will shut off the heat source (element) to make sure the temperature doesn't go any higher.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
The most obbious suspect is the upper oven fan. Turned off power circuit breaker. Removed two philip screws at top of control panel and lowered the panel. Using the 3D view of the oven on this web site I located the fan limit switch. Jumpered the limit switch. Turned power on and the fan ran. That proved the switch was defective and not the fan. Replaced the limit I purchased from Partselect.com.Please note* My life career was electrical. I used the schematic that came with the oven to determine that the limit was the only control between one of the 240 volt lines and the fan. Thus I knew it was safe to jump the limit.If you are in doubt, seek some advice.Good Luck, Arno
