Re: replaced bake element but range won't turn on
Not a happy circumstance.
An old message and you have probably found the problem by now; if you have, you might post it back here as a comment to aid others.
There may be fuse mounted inside the back panel of the upright.
Unplug the range before removing anything that may expose lethal voltages.

Make sure it is plugged in and you have power to your house.If everything is dead check your fusebox for blown fuses if you have circuit breakers reset the breaker for the stove by turning it off then back on. If the burners on the top work,but the oven won't you probably have a burned out bake element .To change this turn off power to the stove and unplug remove 2 or 3 screws holding the bake element and remove the wires to the element by loosing the screws on the terminals note sometimes bake elements plug in in this case just unplug. Reverse process to install. Reapply power and test.
the broil element
is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn't working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.
If there is no continuity then the element will need to be replaced. If the wires are damaged then they will need to be repaired. If the element is ok then you will need to check the broil circuit to determine the cause. This involves live voltage checks and should only be performed by qualified persons. Components to check include fuses, if the range is equipped, and oven control thermostat or electronic control. Depending on the manufacturer of the element, you will normally read between 19 ohms and 115 ohms
Sounds like a connection issue to the control panel and the lower portion of the unit. Contact a professional to have the unit diagnosed unless you find the ohm reading to be off for either broil or bake element.
see the next steps and proceed according with commong sense: God bless you Usually,
when an oven won't broil, it's because the broiler element is burned
out. The broiler element in an electric oven is the black, pencil-thick
tube at the top of the oven. When the broiler is on, 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. To determine if the heating element is
burned out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of thi
Does the oven indicator light come on when you turn the oven on? Does the baking element or the broil element work by themselves but just don't work together? If nothing at all works did they stop working at the same time? Need to know to troubleshoot. Please reply with more info.
You can replace the element. The element should just plug in to the oven. You might have to remove a few bolts that hold the element in place. Get the model number of your range and call your local appliance stores, or order it online. Unplug the old element and plug in the new element.
you mentioned the voltage supply appears good, but have you checked the bake element itself for voltage or continuity ? I don't recommend checking ranges while they have power, so you should unplug the unit from the wall. The lower element's (bake) tend to burn out more frequently because they are used more so I'd start by checking it for continuity.
Hope that help's. Let me know if you require tips or guidance to check the element and I certainly will try and assist you. **FYI...It should read very little to no resistance with an ohm meter. If it reads infinte, it's time for a new one. Part # 316075104 and retails for about $30.**
Thank's for visiting "fixya" amd good luck.
Most likely have a bad heating element. Check for continuity in the element. Make sure to trip the breaker or unplug the unit before removing the element. 120 volts still run through the element even though it is not turned on. Takes 240 volts to make it glow red.
bann...why did you replace the element? It is possible that the relay or the control circuit were the problems and still are. The hi limit switch is a temperature 'box' which is designed to open the circuit in case of overheating. Rarely a problem. First, these units are 3 wire units. That means 220 volts ... two breakers. They may be part of a linked unit or separate. Turn them BOTH off and then on. Do all of your burners heat properly on high? If you have a voltage tester, you can test to see if the voltage is there. Unplug the unit. The vertical slot is neutral. Each of the other slots with the neutral should light the tester. If not, your problem is outside the stove.
