appliance doctor :

Hi I,m John I will help you with the wire .

appliance doctor :

have you located the wire behind the panel ?

appliance doctor :

Do you want to know where it connects to the oven control ?

JACUSTOMER-i1ub8gg3- :

no I cant get hold of the wire because it is between the outside back pnel and the inside ovven casing,neither of whicare easily removable

appliance doctor :

Did you try fishing for it with a coat hanger to reconnect it to the bake element ?

JACUSTOMER-i1ub8gg3- :

yes,however the hole that the wire woud normally come through is onlyone half by three quarters of an inch and it is oval shped at the bottom of the back panel of the oven.

appliance doctor :

There has to be a way of removing the back panel for repairs lke this their not sealed ,this is a free standing stove is that correct ?

JACUSTOMER-i1ub8gg3- :

no,its a 1962 mdel moffat fiesta stovetop and oven built-in as a unit.

appliance doctor :

appliance doctor :

Why did you rate poor service what I told you is the way to repair the problem.

appliance doctor :

if you cant fish it out the unit has to be pulled out .
