It would be useful if you had some form of tester to check for continuity and voltage but not initially essential.
Have you got continuity through item 26 which is a thermal cut-out
OK do you have any means of checking if you have a voltage at the heating element ie a mains tester with two probes or a multimeter. The reset switch is there to prevent the oven overheating, if the temperature gets too high it cuts the power to the heater. If this is happening alot it usually means that the thermostat is faulty. We need to establish if you have power at the heater and if not (which you suggest) work back from there to where you do have some.
What we need to check is - if the heating element has power, if not then we follow the power cables back to the thermostat, if you have a light on (when the thermostat is turned on and timer on time) that indicates generally that power is on up to that point. But its a case of checking from the heater element back to the controls, somewhere there will be a break in power supply which could be the timer, the thermostat, the cut out or even a faulty new element.
OK you should be able to get one for around $10 or less, dont be going out and spending big money you dont need one that in of engineer quality just one that gives you fairly accurate readings, make sure it has a buzzer or beeper as well as being able to measure AC voltages.
lol - yes you sure will, we only need the ACV set at 250V and the cont (continuity) - drop me a note when you are back at the office.
