So I found this,, It looks like it will fit inside the Mattel oven perfect,, it has a hi Limit switch,, Ill start to retro-fit it this wk and keep every one up on the progress,,
these are available at http://www.allectronics.com
Im thinking next, adding a cooling fan to the mattel ovens,, and a timer,,

Oh well,,, The heating element fit perfect, I only had to drill 2- 1/8" holes and pop rivet it in,, I was able to remove the lower old heating element tray and put the new heater right up below the mold tray,, anyway,, wired it up, closed it up and tried it,, and it only went to 230f before its hi limit kicked out,, and then only rose to 255F before cooling back down to 200F and starting back up,, so 255F is still 75F below what we need,,
I do have a 350F hi limit that I can replace the lower one with but Im worried that the heating wire might not be rated to go higher?? Ill mess around with it more this week end,,, Well almost had something,, maybe next try,,
