Overheated Wire Connections In Stove Top



Top of electrical range is overheating, therefore wire connections in elements are loose.


Question : Is there any protection available ?
Like for example, sheet metal, to create a double space ( between socket connection & stove top ) for cooling. or anything to this effect.

Thank You !

You might have this backwards.

No I Dont, See What Happen:When The Element Is On
The Heat from ( let say frying pan ) heats up the top
and the socket is real hot, thetefore the wires are burn
and loose.

i do appliance repair. a common problem are those burner receptacles. you have to replace burner AND receptacle also repair any burned wiring. do not use oversize pans on Hi heat.
