Electric cooker

Postby Kieran1 » Sat Feb 25, 2012 10:18 pm

Hi, at the moment I am teaching myself all about kitchen appliances and how to replace different parts when they are faulty. The other day I decided id remove the back of the electric cooker to familiarise myself with wiring for the grill element etc. I noticed that there is foam inside covered with silver foil. What is this for? Heat resistent? It was also slightly singed? Is that something to worry about?

It no need to worry about this silver foil. It is there because silver is a very good conductor of heat and it help to manage the inside temperature.
