Ok, just picked up a 1998 105 for $100. I posted it a few months ago, but just picked it up.
1. I clean it, it looks awesome
2. I let it sit overnight, (it was just too late)
3. I turn it on and it makes this horrendous arcing noise and the control head starts smoking.
4. I open it up and notice that the (what appears to be) contactor is arcing out and not making contact.
So, I've never owned a cookshack but i'm assuming the contactor is the key to the whole deal, none the less it doesn't seems to work. All the electronics seem to work, time, temp, hold temp etc, just no power to the heating element.
Can anyone help???????????????
