    Default terminal connectors

    Can these be used on one of the bake element wires if the pvc/plastic is removed? Reason I ask is I have some of these, but was not able to find any of what is on it at Lowe's. May have to goto a real hardware store.http://www.ebay.com/itm/100Pcs-Male-...kAAOSwWKtUrjkO

    For a temp fix, I used a butt splice with heat shrink just to see if the stove would function properly. I also used blue wire from the infinite switch of another stove. Both the blue and the wire on the stove in question are 18 gauge. Not comfortable splicing stove wire at least without ceramic splices because of the heat. I have enough of the original wire to let me just put new proper connectors on it and have no splices.

    The reason I mentioned using the blue switch wire is I am not sure if it has the same heat resistance as the bake element wire and do not intend to leave it if that is the case.

    I would say yes they can be....but those do not look like they are high temp. I would use them probably on a manual clean oven bake element but would hesitate if on a self clean oven bake element....JMO!

    Yeah, the heat resistance comcerns me. The blue wire may not ne as heat resistant as the original element wire. I will wait until I can find some high heat restant connectors.

    Got one from a buddy of mine that I was comfortable using. It is like the last two rows you show for18 gauge. Kind of heavy built and would no tstick to a magnet so I assume it is copper or brass. I would stock up on some when found, but kind of burned out on stoves lately. Wasted a couple of days or more on a couple that wound up unuseable due to rodent stinch.

    I think the electricl supply house down the road has then but in packs of 50 and I am not saure the guy that showed them to me knew whether they were heat resistant or not. Not sure I need that many of that type right now.
    Don't know what the price was. He did say they were a little pricey.

    After all this time and effort,I am scrapping at least two.

    We don't sell too many used ranges...we have to be picky about the ones we rebuild also.

    I haven't had many in a while. I will be picky in the future.
