Susan asks…

what are oven bake elements made out of?

We have a Kenmore electric oven and the oven bake element exploded recently and left a yellowish residue inside the over. We cleaned it out as best we could but there is still a little residue left over. Is it safe to restart the over while a little of this residue is left over? is it toxic? What is a bake element made out of and what would this powder be?


James Conley answers:

It’s made of an alloy of tungsten and steel.
Tungsten has the property of not conducting
electricity without considerable resistance.
When this resistance is overcome, the metal
gets hot. A thin strip will glow from the heat,
which you can see in a toaster.

If your oven element is broken, from over heating or
something bumping against it, then the electrical
circuit will be broken and it will no longer work.
If this is the cast, do not try to reconnect it. Have
an appliance repair service replace it.
If the oven fails to heat when turned on, turn the
oven back OFF and call for service.

I don’t think the residue is toxic.
