Hi All

Looking for some advice on this oven mode selector switch. Had to replace it due to melting a cam on one of the spade connectors. This stopped the bottom element heating up but not the top. Same fault has occurred less than a year later and on inspection the same spade connector is overheating again and has weakened the spring so contact is not quite made. Resolved this with a little bending of the contact and all good however spade connection is still getting hot even though I have squeezed it tight on the terminal. Obviously this will lead to melting etc again. 
Am I better cutting off the female spade and soldering the wire directly to the male side to prevent overheating.
Thanks in advance.

Hello,
I am not familiar with this model. I would suggest finding out from the manufacturer why this is happening. Repairing a wire or terminal is fine but if it is getting hot and melting it signifies another issue which could be potentially hazardous. If the manufacturer is not a feasible option at least consider having a certified technician come out and look at the appliance.
