    Blodgett Mark V dumbest self inflicted problem

    Sooo... we were using the Blodgett Mark V electric 220 we had the trim panel underneath the doors off and we crushed the exposed door switch with a metal rake we use for baking. Sparks shot out from the shattered switch and the oven turned off. I tried to get it started by having the two door switch wires tied together but it won't work. Could I have damaged something else too? The breaker didn't trip and we have power. Thank you

    Do you know what a VOM is?
    Do you know what a schematic is?
    Do you know how to properly use a VOM?
    Do you know how to properly use a schematic?

    Have you exercised the skills necessary for employing those two key items to reach a conclusion dictating what causal factors might be contributing to the oven's failure in order to remediate the problem...but are having little difficulty with that?

    • If so, then post your results HERE. Provide adequate details based upon the VOM readings as they're related to the alpha-numeric component designations indicated on the schematic.
    • If NOT, then do so and THEN post your results HERE.
    • If you don't know HOW to do all that, then call a service company. They WILL know how.

    You blew one or both of the fuses on the top of the control panel.

    LOL! If I'd been standing there in front of it and seen the fuse holders, that'd been the first thing to check. I don't work on Blodgett electric ovens much, so forgot it had them.

    Sooo...there ya go, old_haidouk. Use your VOM to check those.
