The bottom (bake) element of my oven will not shut off

I have a Moffat Gourmet 300, model # MSS 4053 H. Recently the bottom element burned out rather dramatically, going off like a welding rod. I replaced it, but it did not work. I then found a fuse was burned out and replaced it too. Then the element came on on its own and would not shut off, with the oven reaching the temperature that it would go to to clean the oven. Suspecting a relay had shorted out when the element burned out, I replaced it too. It then appeared to work properly on its first test run, with the new element cycling on and off as it usually would. The next day when the oven was used the element didn't shut off when it reached temp, even though the oven controller was no longer indicating that it was heating. I took out the fuse to stop the element from continuing to heat. What other component could be at fault? This is an old stove, so parts are hard to find. Where is the best place to look for parts for it?

SOURCE: heating element will not heat

With all that you said, I would suspect an open or faulty element. It is pretty much the most obvious solution.

If you have any electronically ability and you are going to open the oven, use an ohm or resistance meter, check the amount of ohms and use the upper element as a reference for the correct reading.
The element will either read open or good. You can use a light tester also and if the light lights between the two connectors of the elements, then it is ok and look elsewhere.

Kenmore electric range model 911.95875790, no heat to either baking and broiler elements.


Hello. I looked carefully at the service manual for your unit--surprisingly, there is no thermal switch inline with the bake/broil elements. Usually, if the bake or broil elements pop, this blows out the thermal switch, killing power to the elements for safety. The main control board can get damaged due to the high current draw during a short-circuit. The part number for the main board is WB27T10008. The overlay(the decorative sticker with the button/names on it) numbers are as follows: almond WB27T10022, black WB27T10023, and white WB27T10021. I hope this helps you!

Whirlpool gold double oven model #gbd307pdb. upper oven lower heating element burned out. replace lower element. it does not get hot. upper element heats up. control board works. is this the thermos


You will have to see if there is power to the element. It is possible that the relay contacts burned when the element burned out. There is a fusable link but this would shut down both the top and bottom elements. If the relay is burned out the control board will need replacing or rebuilding.

While roasting a chicken in the oven, a "fizzle" was heard and the lower element shut off, the light on the dial did not work although it would go on when switching it to broil but there was still no heat,...


your heater element went (the metal rod that heats up inside oven). can easily find replacement and not hard to do but make sure you shut off power/ unplug oven. usually a couple of screws where the element goes into back of oven to hold it in place. then can pull element out enough to see the screws that attatch the wires the the element. most appliance repair shops carry them in stock. may be easier to take old one in to match up then trying to locate the make model and seriel number you would need wuthout it.

Broiler will not come on when baking


Take a look at the element ( the "tube" inside the oven that glows red hot when the oven is turned on). If the element is burned out it will not be hot and glowing. You may have a loose connection to the element but most likely it is burned out and needs replacing.
Our stove is 27 years old and I have had to replace top or bottom elements every 6 years or so. I just bought a replacement element at Canadian Tire in Calgary for about $34. Just undo the 2 screws around the element and attach the new element to the old wires.
Good Luck -I hope this works for you

The heating element in the lower part of the oven burned. I was almost like a welding rod, it kept burning even when we had the oven off. I turned the power off at the fuse box before it finally stopped....


This sounds more like the electric control dial thermostat, keeping power on at the element, both element and control dial will need replacing

Bottom oven element sparked then quit working


The element sometimes will continue to arc inside after it burns out. It's 220 volts jumping across the break.
