Oven top element does not come on when baking

When we are baking with our Amana range the top element never comes on so the top of the food being bake never browns.

The top element does come on when we use broil mode. Can something be done to fix this?

Thank you

First start up


You're actually referring to the "broiler" elements. Most electric ovens have these at the top of the main oven space. (Some gas ovens are set up the same way, but many put the broiler elements in a bottom drawer.)

As their name implies, broiler elements are active only when you're broiling. They will not go on for baking.

Broiling is the process of cooking food by exposing it directly to a high heat source at close range. To broil a steak, for example, you would place the pan holding the steak on an oven rack raised to the top or next to top position in the oven (consult the manual) and set the oven to broil. The top elements will then turn on and cook the meat by direct radiation.

Most people, however, use ovens for baking far more often than for broiling. Baking is the process of cooking food (cakes, casseroles, roasts etc) by indirect heat. In other words you raise the oven to a certain temperature, put the food on a rack more in the middle of the oven, and let the surrounding heat cook it over time. When you bake the top broiler elements usually don't come on at all.

I hope this helps.

Top element does not work in bake mode,but it does work in broil mode


The top element is a broil element and will not come on in bake mode just as the lower bake element will not come on during the broil mode

When set to bake oven does not preheat and tempature does not increase. when set to broil oven heats


Since your oven has a separate element for bake and broil I would bet the bake element is burnt out or burnt electrical connection to the element. Make sure you disconnect all power to the range before checking.

Amana electric oven won't get above 225 degrees. Takes over an hour to get to this temp.


sounds like only the broiler is working which comes on low during bake cycle. unplug or turn off breaker, remove bake element and check for continuity or take to someone who can.

My oven take forever to preheat


Your bake element is probably open. When this happens the broil element may heat slightly when in BAKE mode and that is where your heat is coming from. First thing I would check is the connections to the bake element as well as the element itsef.

Good luck!

Bottom element on range doesn't work


we can check a few things, first off you need to confirm 220v. to unit itself, ill assume you do, the top elements are working correctly.. sounds like a bad electronic control, what youll need to check is on the control itself, there is a wire labeled L1, then there will be a bake terminal, ill also assume L1 has 110v, other\wise the clock wouldnt be liting up, but if you carefully unplug the bake terminal and test terminal for power( it will have 110v, after you select bake andstart oven.

Oven will not heat past 220 degrees


Check your bake element, I had the exact same problem and found the bake element had burned in half. The broil element comes on during preheat and kicks off at around 220 degrees.
