From where do I access the lower oven element on a Amana ACF4215A

Need to replace the lower element on our Amana ACF4215A oven. Do I get to the element through drawer removal or the bottom of the inside of the oven? Thanks, Sam

There should be two screws at the rear of the bottom panel inside the oven. Remove those and lift out that panel. The element is under there. If there is not enough wire to pull thru you may have to disconnect and reconnect the wires to the element from the back of the oven by removing the back panel. Hope this helps.

My oven still doesnt work after replacing heating element


it could either be a hot spot in the element where it can no longer pass all the current needed for proper operation in heating(look for a discolored spot on it,it may be whitish and dimpled from heat) or secondly,it could be the oven thermocouple located on the inside top of the oven cavity

My amana oven will not heat up. Thought it was


More than likely your going to need a new thermostat or control. Likely when the element burned up it shorted out the control. Check that everything else is working good like the broil element and the top burners. If so there is only two other option the control for baking or the wiring from the control to the element you just replaced.

The oven will not completely heat


Try a few drops of vegetable oil on the lower pan of the oven, and turn it on. If you do not get smoke during pre-heat, chances are your lower element is not working properly. If you DO get copious amounts of smoke off the pan, the problem could be with the temperature sensor.

If your lower element is not functioning, and if your broil function works just fine, the problem may be isolated to the relay control board. (relay K4 controls half of the 240V required to run the Bake element correctly)

Oven will not heat until you turn the heat up to 400 degrees


Your "Bake" element may not be working properly. It's the one in the bottom of the oven. Place a couple drops of vegetable oil on the bottom pan, and turn the oven on. During pre-heat, you should start to see those oil drops generate some smoke, IF the lower element is working properly. If it isn't - voila'.!! Problem is with the lower element / associated circuit.

REPLACE OVEN ELECTRICAL ELEMENT


You need to access through the back to get to the connection on the back of the element. Be sure to unplug the machine!

Element Question


In most ovens, both elements are used during the warmup phase even when used for baking and after the set-temperature is reached, the lower element keeps it stable.
You should be able to detect which one is not working with your bare hand. Set the baking temperature for 250-300 degrees, leaving the oven door open. Hold your hand at different heights in the oven and you should be able to sense which element is working and which isn't within a couple of minutes.
If you still aren't certain, then try using the broil element only. If it is heating, then it's obviously OK and that would point to the bake (lower) element by default.
A final check could be done with an open door and hovering with your hand over the lower element; no heat = defective.
