Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

So unfortunately there are electrical contacts on this thermostat. Whether lubricant worked it's way into the electrical contacts or the shaft is turning but the parts around the thermostat aren't rotating properly so the switch contacts aren't engaging properly, the thermostat would need to be replaced to resolve this issue. The part is just under $100 and below is a link to the part you'll need to order and replace for your model number.
