Your best bet is to take element out and take it to a domestic appliance spares stockist. many of these elements are standard across several makes or can be adapted

On bake mode it justs gets luke warm. broil mode it works fine


Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:"

  • When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

  • You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

    If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.

  • If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective.

    Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details.

    Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat.

    If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

    Oven not working

    it is very likely that the element has failed internally and as such, the only cure is a new element.

    My oven will only reach 275 degrees even when the setting is at 400 or more. The broiler works fine. Are there heating elements that have gone out, possibly?


    This means a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

    Amana range -the oven does not work, but rest of stove is working.

    If the oven isn't working it is either the oven thermostat or the element. If the light and fan comes on to show it's heating but no heat appears, check the fan oven element on the back wall behind the panel. Usually 4 screws.

    Oven bake element will not turn on.

    Welcome ,
    This means you have one or more relays that are defective.
    Rather than spending your hard earned money randomly swapping out parts.
    Call service and get it done in one shot and save money on parts. all that you spent on unnecessary parts could have went to a service call and a good meal this evening from your fine oven.
    bless you,

    relays are the problem.
