the selector switch for the oven /220 and the thermostat. the manual contains basic diagram for pigtail only

I have a basic schematic but since the powers that control this website won't let us send or receive email addresses, I won't be able to send it to you so I will try to give you the information I have. I will use the standard markings that are on most controls.

Selector Switch



L1=Incoming power line 1

N=neutral or ground

PL=Pilot light (indicator lite)


L2=incoming power line 2



The BK and BR go from the selector to the appropriate elements

L1 is incoming power from one side of 230V terminal block

N goes to the neutral connection on terminal block

P goes to the indicator light that shows the oven is on.

L2 is incoming power to the thermostat and is the other side of the 230v terminal block

#2 on thermostat goes to the other side of the Broil element

#3 on thermostat goes to the other side of the Bake element


I hope this will help you resolve your problem and thank you for using Just Answer. Bob
