Bottom element on range doesn't work

Recently, we had a problem with our 4 year old Amana electric coil range. Without an explanation, the digital clock suddenly disappeared, the temperature setting canged to celsius and the range would not bake correctly afterwards. Although we had luck in turning the on board clock back on and changing the temperature setting from celsius back to Fahrenheit like it was in the beginning, we could not get the bottom heating element in the range to work at all. We replaced the bottom element in the stove assuming it had gone out, but this did not solve the problem. Now we are stuck with two good heating elements (have checked both with a multimeter,) we can't afford a service call and are at a loss as to what to do.

We can check a few things, first off you need to confirm 220v. to unit itself, ill assume you do, the top elements are working correctly.. sounds like a bad electronic control, what youll need to check is on the control itself, there is a wire labeled L1, then there will be a bake terminal, ill also assume L1 has 110v, other\wise the clock wouldnt be liting up, but if you carefully unplug the bake terminal and test terminal for power( it will have 110v, after you select bake andstart oven.

Top oven bottom coil doesn't come on. Is it


Yes the lower element of a electric oven is the bake element,the upper on is broil element,
The most usual thing why it doesnt heat is a broken element. Does a part of it look smooth and a part real rough and ragged looking
If a part of it looks ragged and rough the element is bad,it should not be bulged out anywhere of it.
it should look smooth and uniform
If it does seem to be not uniform anywhere on it,replace bake element

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.

Bottom heating coil not working in my amana oven.


Most likely the temperature sensor is bad. This is a small pencil shaped rod in the top of the oven.

Well, to ensure the temp sensor isn't bad, you can take an ohm meter to the contacts of it and measure the resistance. It should be around 20 ohms. If it is much greater or infinite, then its bad. To get to the contacts you will need to unplug the oven, pull it away from the wall and remove the rear panel. Then disconnect the wiring and touch the probes from the meter to the contacts on the sensor. You can order a new sensor locally or from repairclinic.com. Let me know what you find.

Amana over


as far as the elementy working, if it glows red, its working. if the unit is preheating within 12-15 min, id say the elements are fine. as far as not maintaining temp, thats strange, if the elemnt turns on the control is sendinding power, and its shuttin off so its stopping power, sounds as if a relay is geting stuck on the control board, strange thngs happen when you short things out like that.

Oven will not heat past 220 degrees


Check your bake element, I had the exact same problem and found the bake element had burned in half. The broil element comes on during preheat and kicks off at around 220 degrees.
