They are either both bad, there is a connection loose or you through a breaker. Check the breaker box first and that the unit is still plugged in. Then check the elements. If they are black and charred looking then they have burned out.
Hi, If your electric oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself... Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..
ELEMENT, BAKE (LOWER)
disconnect unit from power. remove screws from lower element. slide old element straight back slowly towards you so the wires follow it through the holes. as you disconnect the wires from the old element either give them a bit of a bend so they do not slide back through the hole and get lost or immediately hook them onto the new element that you could sit below the old element for transferal of wires. make sure wires are attached securely and reinstall. hope this helps, best of luck, ttfn
If all the elements are dead, check for blown fuses/tripped circuit breakers.
There may be some in the range unit itself in addition to your electrical
If one element is completely dead on all heat settings, the control is
probably bad or there is a broken wire. If it is stuck on high for
all control settings or is erratic, the control is bad - replacements
are readily available and easily installed.
On ranges with push button heat selection, a pair of heating elements are
switched in various combinations across 120 and/or 240. If some heat
settings do not work, the most likely cause is that one of the heatings
elements is burnt out although a bad switch is also possible. Kill power
to the range and test the heating elements for continuity with resistance meter or multimeter.
For the lower baking element: Again, check for blown fuses in the oven or tripped circuit breakers. The remove any wiring to the bottom element and test for resistance. If you get no reading (or a very high resistance) then your element is dead.
CESAR, THE OVEN CONTROL IS THE CLOCK,HOWEVER, ON MANY KITCHEN AID RANGES, THERE IS AN INLINE FUSE 15AMP, THAT IS IN THE OVEN CIRCUIT. I WOULD SUGGEST THAT THE INLINE FUSE BE CHECKED FIRST BEFORE CONDEMNING THE CONTROL.
DAVID, THE GLASS TOP ELEMENTS ARE CONTROLLED BY THE SURFACE SWITCH FOR REGULATING TEMPS. THE SWITCH WILL TURN THE ELEMENT ON AND OFF TO REGULATE TEMP. I WOULD SUSPECT THE SURFACE SWITCH(WHAT THE KNOB IS ATTACHED TO) AS THE DEFECTIVE COMPONENT. THERE IS A HIGH LIMIT SWITCH THAT IS PART OF THE ELEMENT. IF IT WAS BAD, THE HOT SURFACE INDICATOR LAMP WOULD BE LIT ALL THE TIME.
THE ELEMENT IS NOTHING MORE THAN A COIL OF WIRE THAT HEATS WHEN CURRENT IS PASSED THROUGH IT.
IF IT WAS BAD, IT WOULDN'T DO ANYTHING AT ALL.
