I have a samsung electric range that is not heating properly for baking. I removed the back panel and tested the thermostat (0.1 ohms) and the temperature sensor (1.07k ohms), both were within spec. The heating element had no continuity and so I expect it will need replacement.
I noticed in the manual and also in several articles online link that it is recommended you remove the element before testing. I didn't do this. I simply removed the wires from its terminals and attached my probes to the terminals.
For what it's worth, I tested the broiler element (it works) the same way and got a reading of 16 ohms.
Why does it say to remove the element if it seems like you can test it right in its place?
