I had to go work on one of these today. When put in the "bake" position, the fan would work, but the elements didn't come on. I ohmed out the easily accessible element, and it ohmed good, so I went on to look for a control problem that would cause that one not to come on. After a bunch of taking panels off, and tracing wires, I found that the other element was blown, but the ELEMENTS WERE WIRED IN SERIES! That's why I wasn't getting power to my second one.

Of course there wasn't a print on this unit, so I don't know if this is factory or some hack job. Has anyone heard of this before? I imagine that if the elements were correctly sized, it would work as one large element, but I just found it weird.

Thanks for your input.
