  • oven elements

    i'm building a oven box out of an old chest freezer and a old electric furnace box, both are stripped clean, I have a oven the kind that was designed to be built in, can I re-locate the broiler element to the other end of the box ( about 45 1/4 inches away) and mount it and then run the system on broil instead of bake? I've been talking pictures of what i'm doing ( wife said I need to) so she could prove to the insurance company she had nothing to do with it.. thanks for any info...

    Be sure to check the insulation type in that freezer, most weren't designed to handle any heat. As for relocating the element, sure you can place them anywhere you want. I suggest low -- heat rises. Most ovens only run the broiler element and not both on the broiler setting however the preheat setting usually turns on the bake and broiler elements for a faster heat up.
