Question and Answers

Q:

Electrical terminal strip melted on Kenmore oven

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

This can only be caused by too much resistance due to a loose connection, a dirty connection or just a bad wire connection. High current draw through any loose connection in a circuit will cause heat. Loose connections are not always apparent. Even tight fitting connections will develop heat under heavy current draw. Check the pig tail terminal connections where the terminals are crimped on the end of the pig tail wires too.

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

The terminal strip was replaced and all mechanical and crimp terminals were checked for tightness.The oven was then connected to the outlet and the oven was turned on "self-clean".The oven was kept a fair distance away from any walls to monitor if anything detrimental might occur.In approximately 15 minutes,noticeable heat could be felt on the junction block cover plate.Power was removed and once again the terminal strip was beginning to melt.What is the next step?

A:

Craig53: I recommend calling a service technician so he can check the amperage draw and to see why it's doing this. It's not abnormal for some heat to generate from the current/amperage but it should not cause it to burn. I assume you have the correct gauge wires running between the breaker box and the range. You may want to consider getting an electrician to check the wiring.
