Good Evening

Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for your question. My name is***** am an expert from Germany and have been working as an equipment technician for 19 years. I work with a language translation program and I would be very grateful for your understanding.
I'm sorry I can't make a call, but another expert can do it for you if you want. I will try to help you as best I can via chat.
I am sorry that you faced this problem!

There can be several causes. It may be that you cleaned it too damp so that's a short circuit caused by damp. But it can also be that you moved a heating coil too much while cleaning it, so that a cable break at the connection point or a defect on the heating coil caused a short circuit. Normally, the device must now be pulled out and the outer rear wall removed from the rear. Then the heating coils and the thermostat with a multimeter should know with a multimeter whether the recovery values ​​are still in order. Then you would have to check the socket of the light bulb with the cable connection to see if it is still OK with a multimeter.

Please feel free to continue this topic if you have any further questions. I would be very happy to help you!
With best regards,

I didn't take the bulb cover off. Not sure how damp would have got in there.

Moisture does not necessarily have to come in from the light bulb. The moisture could also have come from the heating coils.

I only cleaned the enamel interior of the oven. How would damp have got in the heating coils?
Expert:  Erdal Zal replied 11 days ago.

The heating coils are normally made of steel. But it has an upper first coating. Depending on age and use, these heating coils may have a small crack and draw moisture from them. It is only a guess. It is not 100% what I am writing here because I am not on site and cannot check. It is only according to my experience what could be anything.
