we've had this *very* old frigidaire stove for 15-20 years... it's the
wide heating-element kind... lived with 3 of 4 working... this morning
my wife kicked-on Left-Front to boil water, and the element *ignited*
into flames, melted the steel cover... i've never heard of that happening!
no warning... ya, the stove is now gone, replaced by a smaller element
caloric... but ima very interested in how something like that could happen?
Not all but that is a fairly common way for an electric range element
to let go...it gets weak in a spot and blows a hole through
itself....looks like a sparkler...not all, but the odd one damages the
pot at the same time.
Some element info that may ( or may not ) help :)
