Oven part meltdown mystery


I pulled out my oven ignitor because it wasn’t working. I found this. I have no idea what the hell happened. There was this burnt mass on both wires. I broke one apart with some pliers. I think they’re the remnants of a plastic wire nut.It looks like someone added spade connectors to this ignitor (what I’m about to do with my replacement ignitor) and they somehow melted. Looks like the insulation on the spade connectors also melted.I don’t know what caused this, so I don’t know how to prevent it from happening after I replace these parts in a similar manner.All these parts were in the oven’s conduit box in the back, along with the rest of the connectors and wires on the harness. Everything else is fine except these parts. Total mystery to me. via /r/DIY https://ift.tt/2LOOSYy
