My old Westinghouse wall oven model # XXXXX is failing.

This answer was rated:

My old Westinghouse wall oven model # XXXXX is failing. The main heating element does not get hot enough, and I found it only gets 120Vs, but it should have 240.

The switch appears to be corroded. How can I get a replacement switch?

electrifier :

Have you checked the power coming into the wall oven to make sure you have 240 volts?


Yes, I checked that.


Can a corroded switch be repaired? If not, how can I find a replacement?

Do you have 240 volts going into the switch?
We aren't finished with your question so accepting it and giving a bonus is really premature. This is done AFTER I have solved your problem for you. Feedback is also premature.
