Viking Wall oven Electric - Botton element doesn't work

Just yesterday we realized that our older Eaton Viking wall oven will not work as it did. The bottom element will not turn on. The lights still work, indicating it is trying, the top element for broil still works, the bottom simply doesn't. Is this just a fuse possibly, or can the bottom element be replaced?

There isn't a fuse. if you could confirm you have 240 volts going to the element that would tell you replacing the element should fix your issue

Element in oven sparked at corner and now will not heat


The heating element burned through -- it needs replacing. Turn off power to oven, remove two screws on heating element mount, pull heating element from wall of oven, remove two screws connecting electric leads to heating element. To install new element, reverse steps. Make sure screws connecting heating element to wires are very tight -- otherwise they will arc.

Kenmore electric stove oven top element (broiler works but bottom element will not heat


the element is easy to change. just slide out the stove from the wall. take off the rear cover and just unplug or unscrew the leads from that element and replace. first make sure you unplug the stove it's self from the wall. it does have 220 volt and will hurt you.

Not heating properly


There are two possibilities, both of which I think you will need a technician to diagnose. There is an electronic sensor on the later model ovens that sends info to the Electronic Oven Control (If you have a touch panel yours is electronic), or the older ovens use a hydraulic thermostat. The sensor on the electronic model can mess up temperature or it can be the EOC. On the older models, usually there is only the thermostat where you adjust temperatue that can cause this problem. Because you elements get red, they are OK, your problem is in the regulation of them. good luck, AJ

Chef fan forced oven stopped heating up - fan and lights still working OK. Screws on element are stuck


the first thing that goes bad is the element, electric stoves work like the light switch on the wall and light bolt. the element is like the light bolt and the thermostat works like the light switch on the wall. and like the light bolt they do go bad often. so the element needs replacing. but before that i check for power to the element, making sure the thermostat supplies electricity.

Kenmore range


If this range has electric elements in the oven, you may have blown one of the heating elements. Do any of the oven functions work? If you were attempting to BAKE when this occurred, have you attempted to turn on the BROILER to see if it works? If the BROILER still heats up, you may just have a bad heating element. If both features quit working, the problem may be with your Electronic Range Control (ERC) board. Post back with comments and let me know.
