Electric stove problem
I have an old GE double oven stove- small oven at head height and larger lower oven. I love this stove even though it's pretty old. Recently I was boiling some corn and had my left hand resting on a metal strip on the upper edge of the stove top. I reached into the boiling water with metal tongs to turn the corn and got a nasty shock. Does anyone know what might be happening? I don't want anyone getting hurt and don't want the house to catch fire. I've looked at the new so-called double oven stoves and the lower oven is practically on the floor- not for me. I hate getting just the one oven stove- don't want to have to remodel to put a second oven in. I've thought about having the stove rewired but no time now till Thanksgiving. What to do? Any advice? Thank you.
