My wife is is the hospital so I have to cook for myself again. Last
night I was boiling some water on the electric range and noticed that
there was one spot on the outermost spiral of the heating element
which was a much brighter orange than the rest of it, which was a
cherry red at that time. The bright spot is about a quarter-inch long
and goes right across the element. It looks to me like a spot of high
resistance which might burn out one of these days. Any other opinions?
Right. Thats' why there are 4 burners on the stove and 4 tires on the
I'm kidding but I think it might last for years like this (during
which time something far more expensvive might fail) and unless
someone has an example of a dangerous ending, I think it will just
stop working someday.
Well, my daughter had a toaster oven with a calrod element in it.
Sucker blew up the other day, scattered glass from the front door of
the oven all over the kitchen. Shatter proof glass, so no harm, but
sure did a job on a piece of toast.
