Bottom element does not work during the cleaning cycle

The bottom element in my oven works during the bake cycle but does not turn on during the cleaning cyle. I have used the self clean 3 times before and both elements were on during the cleaning cycle. Now it wont clean because it obvioiusly doesn't get hot enough? Does it have anything to do with a fuse?

    Bottom element doesnt work in oven, but top does.


    NOPE!
    1. Broil element does not have welded-on legs and will touch the bottom of oven, overheating itself and will end up the same way your bake element did; besides, the bottom of the oven will corrode pretty quick
    2. Many ovens use both elements during bake cycle
    3. self clean cycle uses broil element
    4. The bake and broil elements typically have different mounting brackets and screw holes ate in different places
    5. you'd have to cover the hole, left after removing the broil element, and insulate the wires, which went to broil element
    6. the ends, protruding behind the mounting bracket may have different length and different connectors. you may end up shorting the wiring to the casing, which may in turn destroy the control board if there is one
    7. Bake elements usually cost only $40-$60. No jury rigging required.
    Hope this helps ;)
    Good luck!

    Upper oven elements don't heat


    Hello- 'Successfully' sounds like you were forewarned....  During the 'self-clean' cycle a circuit or connection to the upper elements burned out while attempting to turn stuff inside the oven to ash. Since this is a wall oven my recommendation is for service from a good tech in your area. You may have lucked out with a fried connector, but many times control board is damaged beyond repair and must be replaced. Only on-site diagnostics will confirm, and this is a very heavy unit for most owners to safely service.  - Remember- Don't use 'self clean'!! Scrape and clean with soapy water and cloth. Turn on oven to 450deg. for 30 min. Much safer. Less costly.       Please acknowledge this post if the info is helpful- Have more if needed.  Thanks-  Ed

    Bottom oven doesn't heat after running self-clean cycle


    Usually, when an oven won't heat, 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.

    Circuitry may have gotten tripped during clean cycle. Oven will open and electronics work but neither element will heat.

    Self-clean not cleaning


    I was wrong (I think).  the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said.  He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working.  In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time.  Also, I was judging by smell.  We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair.  Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.

    Amana Convection oven not controlling temp


    I have just checked the baking guide in the manual and have found that it may not be us after all. (Maybe this is why they telll us to read the whole manual. Well, I never have) According to the cooking time for Baking, the range is very extensive. For example, an angel cake at 350 could take from 28-50 minutes, buscuits at 375-400 could take 8-16 minutes, layer cakes at 350-375 could take 25-40 minutes, pound cakes at 325-350 could take 45-70 minutes and fresh pies at 400-450 could take 35-60 minutes. Basically, the baking directions on the box means absolutely nothing to use Amana oven owners. We have no choice but to cook our food or baked goods until they are cooked, whenever that may be. :) Linda
