I am diagnosing issue with my electric oven which does not engage heat element.
Basically it's thermostat (BA, BR, C) -> relays -> heat elements (2 top, 1 bottom). hardwired.
I disassemble the thermostat and want to confirm if assembly is correct for anyone that is familiar with these types of thermostats.
When I disassemble the thermostat the parts imploded due to spring release and didn't have enough time to view.
So I put back together based on best possible configuration, and came up with the following (pictures below).
However, I notice there is always continuity at the leads regardless of whether it's pressed or depressed.
Which doesn't seem right to me. Should thermostat always be under load?
You can see two springs, when the knob is turned/pushed forward it pushes the bracket which is supposed to engage the contacts/leads at the black part of the box.
Does this look about correct to you?
Thanks for any feedback.
