New Heating Element; Has Power But Not Heating Up

Convection oven kitchen aid superbra, replaced old heating element and was working, but recently stopped working. Tested power supply, when it heats up, it stays on low mode and does not get hot. Shows no indication of going higher; is it a bad heating element or something else?

Let's go over a few things: 

  • Your unit uses 220 volts to provide heating.  Some elements are wired to one of the two 'legs' of the 220 giving you 'low'.  High uses 220
220 consists of three wires...two 'hot' (red and black) and a neutral which is white.  Neutral to hot will give you 110...hot to hot 220.  Measure accordingly and use care!  Neutral and the frame of the stove are effectively the same terminal...for safety.
  • You say some of the wires are burnt or a fuse is blown.  They need to be replaced with proper wire...not just any kind.  There is high temp insulated wire available from many ACE and other home stores or parts shops.  It needs to be thick enough, too.  Make all connections carefully and fully onto clean terminals.  Tighten clockwise.
  • Check the voltage coming to the element on various settings as above.  If you only get 110/120, you have an open supply issue which needs to be found.
Look for: loose wires, corrosion, burned insulation to ground.

The preheat light flashes on my he range and oven does not heat. I have had the sensor checked and its working. What else could it be?


Most likely the heating element is bad. Disconnect the oven from power. You can open the bottom of your oven to expose the heating element and see if there are any signs of burns or melting. If you can, remove the heating element and use a volt/ohm meter to check "continuity" across the element ... it should be a dead short. While performing this inspection, confirm that the wires and connectors leading to the heating element are intact and connected.

My kitchen aid "superba " convection oven is not maintaining it's temperature. It has only one heating element on top.


There is a good chance there is a hidden element on the bottom. This is common on higher end ranges. It could be a bad element.

No heat


The home's circuit breaker is not the problem if part of the stove / oven works. What is more likely to be the cause is a problem such as an "open" or "burned out" heating element or socket.
The control is "on" and sending power to the element. The control reports "Preheating" but since the heating element itself is no longer a complete circuit - it fails to heat. As mentioned above, it may be a problem with the socket that the heating element plugs into - but could be a problem with any wire between the control and the heating element.
I would suggest shuting off the circuit breaker for the stove / oven. Check to be sure it is off by turning on a heater that worked previously. If it stays off, you're ready to continue. Carefully inspect the heating element itself for damage. The surface of the heater should be uniform - smooth over the entire length. You may not be able yo view the back side of the heater - but you may be able to run your fingers gently over the surface to feel for damage. If damage is found on the surface, this would indicate that a new element is required. Once replaced, you should expect it to work again as new. If unable find damage, removal and inspection of both the oven's socket and heating element contact blades should be done. If found to be burned or damaged, replacement of the socket, heater or both may be needed.
Obtain replacement parts designed for you make and model stove / range. Contact an appliance repair service if unsure how to check / make these repairs.
I hope this helps & good luck!

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.

Our oven won't work. it is a convection oven, and it won't heat at all. the stovetop does work, but when we turn the oven on it says "low" and never heats up. the fan does turn on when we try...


Hi

If the fan is working then most likely it is the heating element gone bad.

You can check this if you have a multimeter or continuity tester.

Replacing the element is not too difficult, you have to get the back off, disconnect 2 wires, undo the fixing screws then fit the new one.

Don't forget to turn the power off first tho'.

I have kitchen aid in the counter range, the bottom heat element is bad. The element has burnt and has a 3" piece that has separated. At the same time the oven stopped working the burners stopped working...


The oven element will not affect the top burners, Unless it tripped the breaker at the panel when the element burned it two. Is there power to the stove? The top burners have their own power and control separate.

Oven will not heat


Most likely, your lower heating element has failed and needs to be replaced.

This is a simple step-by-step procedure...

1. Turn off the power to the oven at the breaker panel. Or slide the oven ahead and reach behind to unplug the power cord.

2. Take out the two screws holding the element bracket in place. These will be on the back wall of the oven. They are usually hex head or phillips screws.

3. Carefully pull the element toward you a little bit until you see the two wires behind it. Unscrew the wire leads and remove the bad heating element.

4. Handle the new element carefully while you attach the wire leads to it with the old screws. Don't stretch the wires any more than you have to.

5. Line up the new element while tucking the wires back in place. Be sure not to pinch the wires between the bracket and the back wall.

6. Fasten the bracket screws, making sure they're tight.

7. Restore power to the appliance and start your oven to check if the new element heats up.

A few things to remember...

You are working with high voltage! Be sure the power is off or the oven is unplugged!

If you find one of the wires has come off the old element, simply reconnect and check your oven. Your old element may work again and you will not need to purchase a new one.

In removing any of the screws mentioned above, note that they may be difficult to lossen due to years of exposure to heat. Don't give up, they will eventually loosen.

Your new element may have some oil or other gunk on it due to the manufacturing process. Once it begins to heat, it may start to smoke. Don't panic! Any residue will eventually burn away and the smoke will cease from then on.

Good Luck!
