Electric Range Control System

Simplified wiring digram of an electric range control system

Power to the oven elements will be switched by a themrostat and possibly an oven selector switch depending on the range design. A failure of either of those components could prevent power from reaching the oven elements. The wiring diagram may need to be consulted to trace the power flow to the elements so any components in the circuit can be tested.
