The Electric Stove
Benjamin Franklin cooked a turkey with electricity in 1749 in Philadelphia,
but the first electric stove was not built until 1896. Since then,
many small refinements have been added, but its operating principle
remains much like that of the heating element in an electric skillet.
Although some stove will include complex accessories such as rotisseries
and meat-roasting probes, the only complicated standard parts are
top-element controls, which provide any desired degree of heat.
All the heating elements in the electric stove including those for
the oven and the broiler are sealed stove that are impervious to
food and water spillage. But rough usage can cause a short circuit,
and the element will fail to heat. They are easy to replace. Important:
Before you work on the stove elements, turn off power to the stove
at the service panel.
How the electric stove heats
When a control knob for one of the top heating elements is turned
on, the switch behind it meters electricity to the element at the
selected rate. All of the elements are constructed of chrome-alloy
resistance wire sealed inside stainless-steel sheaths. The top elements
are flat and tightly coiled to expose a maximum heated area to the
cooking utensil. Most stoves provide three top elements that are
six inches in diameter and another, for large pots, that is about
eight inches across.
The oven has two elements: an upper that is chiefly for broiling,
a lower for baking. They are broadly looped to cover as wide an
area as possible, ensuring even heating throughout the oven. On
many stoves the temperature is regulated by the same type of thermostat
used in a gas-stove oven.
1 An stove infinite switch: off
With two springs, a magnet, a cam, and a bimetallic strip inside
a heating coil. This infinite switch gives completely variable heat
adjustment instead of a few settings. When the control knob is at
the off position. The cam presses its slimmest part on a lever spring.
The lever spring pushes up the contact-arm spring with maximum force.
Pivoting the contact arm left to open the circuit. The cam lets
the springs push hard enough to hold the contacts apart despite
the attraction of a magnet.
Testing and replacing a top element
If a top element on an electric stove does not heat properly, test
it by removing the element from its terminal block. Also remove
another element of the same size that is working properly. stoves
with infinite switches t,abcve, usually have elements with two terminals.
Attach the suspect element to the terminal block of the properly
operating element and turn on the switch. If the stove element still
does not heat, it should be replaced. If the element heats its own
terminal block wiring or switch is faulty. Call a San Antonio
stove repair technician and have them checked.
