Lower bake element partially working

I have a MER6770AAC. The lower oven bake element is only partially working. All except for the last section that runs parallel to the back of the oven turns red. I assume that's not normal correct?? I replaced the element today and much to my dismay, it did the same thing. I called the store where I bought the element and he suggested that it's a power problem. I checked across both leads and had 240. I also checked across the ground to each lead and had 120. Seems fine there.

Any suggestions??? Thanksgiving is a week away and I don't want the turkey cooking unevenly. Thanks for all your help!!

    So no one has any input/suggestions? Can someone with the same range turn the bottom element on and confirm the entire element turns red? I confirmed that I have 240v at the leads where they hook up to the element. Broil element in the lower oven works fine too.



    Little help here! I've got less than a week to get this fixed!

    I have the same problem. Repair man said the clock assembly is bad. They cost $250-$300. I havn't yet replaced mine to see if it fixes it or not

    I have observed the same thing but I am not yet convinced that it is a problem. The oven has no problem achieving and maintaining a proper temp. I do not know a lot about electricity and ovens but I do know a bit about the concept of electrical resiatance--which is how an electric oven element works. It seems like kind of an "all or nothing" proposition for a bake element to work or not work. Have you been told by an authoritative source that the element does not work that way by design?

    I have the exact opposite problem, as the front part of the element gets red but the back part doesn't.  I used an oven thermometer, and I have a very interesting but not useful scale, where it thinks it has reached 325 but has just reached 200, and continues to maintain approximately 125 degrees of difference.  I don't like the popping noise, so I'm going to try to get a new element.

SOURCE: No power to upper oven 'bake' heating element.

Sounds like you have it figured, need to spend some moola..........

You can ohm out the sensor to the oven should be about 1100 ohms at room temperature.((the sensor is the little rod with two wires attached to it sticking in the oven, as temps change resistance changes which is read by the board) The upper and lower oven sensors are probably the same,you could just swap them to test, but probably not necessary,might also be confusing if you do not do a lot of testing on a regular basis. Remember to unplug unit for safety.

The bake element if it was not bad should be about 20 ohms, bad would read open........

I have GE model#JKP45WOP2WG double oven wall unit. Lower oven isn't heating up properly. Bottom of lower oven doesn't seem as hot as the top of the oven... replaced oven sensor, not


Most double wall ovens are technically two separate oven boxes. The lower oven box has its bake, boil elements, high limit thermostat and ofcourse its own oven sensor. If the lower oven box boil is working good and less heat on bake feature may suggest that the bake element is burned out and only getting preheated with boil element. Just a suggestion here

Electric Oven is not heating up (BAKE)


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} It could be that your lower element is burnt out or ready to burn out. They last 3-5 years depending how much you use your stove.
Disconnect POWER to the stove, remove the screws holding the lower element to the back of the inside of the stove, pull out carefully and remove the 2 screws holding the wires on. Check the element with an ohm meter, it should read 0 (zero or very close) resistance on an ohm meter. You may also take it to a store that sells replacements ($25) and they may check it for you.

Kenmore oven lower element sporadically heating.


When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

Elements in convection oven won't heat


DO you have a model number for that. I'm almost sure it's a thermal fuse in the back of the oven. Usually they go out during or after cleaning but that would shut down both elements. If you have the model (usually by the inside door look all over and up in the cavity) Then if you go to this link

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action?intcmp=xsite_Sears

It will show you a breakdown of the oven and where it is. If you give me the model I'll show you what I'm talking about. Good luck.

P.S. if it the fuse it's a cheap fix, little hard to get in back of the oven but cheap!

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.

After temp is set bottom oven will not heat up to desired temp


you probably have a burnt out or shorted out lower bake element in you r lower oven. it sometimes will actually break apart or look like it sparked thru the black tubular section. it is common and will cause no heat during the bake cycle.
you could try to do a broil and see if it gets hot and that would let you know the control is ok and just needs the lower bake element.

Bottom Baking element not working


dmiller58
If all your connections are solid then your controller is defective. Did you get any faults before changing the element? Does the broil (one at the top of the oven) work?
