The bottom element has probably "blown" out. See if there is a small spot that looks like it exploded. It is similar to an extension cord getting warm and melting in a spot. The only answer is to obtain a new element.

How do I replace the bottom element of my GE oven?


Hundreds of GE ovens, so can't give procedure, but problem is not necessarily the element - could be switch, connection to element, etc. Google GE (model #) lower element not heating.

Bottom oven element not working


Only 2 things left. A bad wire or bad control board.
Remove the rear panel. Set the range to bake,check power at the element terminals with a voltmeter. Ifyou do not have 220 volts at the element replace the ERC.(clock).

Kenmore oven not working


Hi, You need to unplug the stove, take the back panel off and check continuity on the bake element or after the back panel is removed, plug the oven back in, and turn oven to bake. You should get 240Volts to the two terminals on the bake element. If you have 240 Volts, the element is bad and needs replaced. I can ship you the new element.

Hope this helps

When on "bake" the top element won't go on. However when on "broil" the element (top) works! So it's obviously not the element - any ideas?


I do not think yoy have a problem as most ovens operate off of the bottom element only. The top element is for broiling only.

Baking element


oh bleep, right? well, if you're lucky this will get you going again. 1. disconnect power to range. 2. remove back metal cover just above range power cord (usually 5 quarter inch hex screws) 3. look for burnt off wire leading to/from bake element. If yes, 4. strip ends of broken wire and splice with ceramic wire nut if no 4. bad news. replace ERC (electronic range control) you fried something on the board. It's got the clock display and all the electronics behind it.

GE Oven bake element not work


It sounds like a problem with the selector switch. You have to remove the back panel to get to the back of the switch in the head unit, and find what wire goes from there to the bake element. With a meter set on 240ACV, or whichever setting is on yours that's HIGHER than that i.e. 400ACV, with the red probe on the terminal and the black one going to ground, see if you are getting 210-240 through it. If so, then it's either a faulty neutral wire connection (the other wire coming out of the element) or the selector switch. Hope this helps.

Top oven will not heat up


Had a similar problem. The overheat sensor had failed to the open position and the oven control would light up and you could set the temp, but it would drop to 100 degrees and then go blank.
