You need to have your thermostat replaced it cycles the element on at of as it reaches temperature and drops below etc. this is a common problem with ovens and is not an expensive repair.
Good luck!

My electric Whirlpool oven won't heat after doing a self-cleaning.

It's possible the heating element burned in half while doing the self clean, it has to stay on a long time for the self clean cycle, try unplugging and plug it back in, might do it

Change bottom element

This is very easy to do. Unplug the over, take the racks out, when the heating element is plugged into the oven there should be two screws. Take them out an unplug the heating element. Plug in the new one which you can either order on line or get from an appliance repair company. They run between $35-50. But plug that in put the screws back in, plug the oven in an you should be ready to go. I've replaced 3 in my oven

sounds like when you put it on bake only the broil element is coming on,when in bake both elements come on,set it to bake,does the bake element glow orange when it heats up,if not the element could be bad and the heat is coming from the broil element or you could be only getting 120 volts to the element,so start it and see if the element glows orange or after like 5 minutes touch the element with a wet paper towel and see if it's even getting hot at all,if not make sure you unplug it or flip the breaker before you go to remove the element,there's 240 volts going to it and power is there all the time,i've seen people try to take it out with the power on thinking that the oven isn't on and POP not only is the element bad but they took out the relay in the clock assy. to by doing that.if you want to write back and let me know what you find i'd be happy to help you if you need more help.

The oven stopped working and heating up. The top range part works.

I suspect a heating element in the oven has burned out. Some ovens have 2 heating elements, one on the bottom for baking and one on the top for broiling. If this is the case, you can try setting the oven on broil and see if the top element gets hot. Usually the bottom element fails first because food gets dripped on it. In most cases you can unplug the old heating element by just pulling on it and plug the new one just as easily. You can check the resistance of the heating element with an ohm meter. If it's burned out the resistance will be very high, probably greater than a mega ohm. In some cases you will need to take the back off the oven to replace the heating element. Just make sure the oven is unplugged and cool when you start working on it.

Frigidaire GM deluxe electri dean (electric oven wall unit)

if you feel through the insulation you can find the two wires that attach to the element pull them through to plug the element back on but there is no plug per say but first are you sure the element is good were there no wires on the element when you removed it should have been two spade connectors with wires on them attached to the element hold my rating till you reply
