    I just took another look at your answer on the midterm, and I think you mis-numbered your answers. Here is the question:

    Question #7: Here is a circuit showing the convection element and convection fan motor in an electric wall oven. The power supply is 120 VAC. If the diode were to fail open, what would be the effect on:
    1. the convection element current (increase/decrease/no change)
    2. the convection fan motor voltage drop (increase/decrease/no change)
    3. the convection fan motor current (increase/decrease/no change)
    4. Total current draw from L1 for all the parallel circuits shown in the schematic (increase/decrease/no change)

    Are the answers you just gave above in line with the part of the circuit we’re asking about?
