We were called out for a repair in the Cortina Estates community in Queen Creek for a Whirlpool range that was not heating properly in the oven. When we arrived the unit had a bake element shorted out, if you look at the picture that really bright area is where it is shorting out. If you see this happening in your oven the best thing you can do is shut the power off to it at the breaker. There is 220 volts going through that and it can put on quite a show, this one was pretty mild in comparison to some we have seen. This happens when an imperfection in the Nickel chromium sheathing gives out. If you have had this happen and need help please give us a call at (602) 412-3133.
