I tested it with a circuit tester and it was getting power, but the
burner element (pretty new) won't get warm. I noticed when I looked
closely at the left side of the ceramic socket, the metallic parts
that 'grip' the lead for the burner element seemed to be spread extra
wide..meaning they wouldn't grip the lead very well. I also noticed
the burner's lead that fits into that side of the ceramic socket was
sort of fried looking,
I know the part isn't called a socket and is some sort of 'box' but
I'm wondering how much of it would have to be replaced...or even
better, that I could repair it.
This might be replaced very soon so I don't want to spend anything on
it that I don't have to. I have the model number but I can't find it
now. None of the on line web pages seem to have its model number.
probably is called a socket, here's two places I'd try:
http://www.partselect.com/ (I got some parts for a pretty old Modern
Maid stove here)
http://www.triblesapplianceparts.com (I've never ordered anything online
with them as there's two of their brick and mortar stores in my area,
but I've only stumped them once)
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
Take the old one off, and go visit the oldest local free-lance appliance
repair place you can find. They will likely have something in their junk
box or old stock, or maybe in a junk stove out back that hasn't been
recycled yet. Anything from that brand and era is likely to use the same
