In an extensive lookup, I was finding a lot of information on electric ranges. It seems like my range has a common failure type. I can’t believe that the number of stoves that fail by turning on as high as they can go. I’m going to have to do an all out search for an old style stove without any electronic stuff. I’m going to try to find all manual controls. This may mean not having a smooth top cook surface, which I really like. Maybe I could find one with a safety feature that actually turns the oven off if the temp gets too high. This is really a pain. For now, I have to unplug the elements in the oven, so I can use the cook top. I could probably get by with this for quite some time, but eventually I’ll need to cook a pie, cookies, or even a pizza.
