Bottom oven on Magtag Gemini burning bottoms of everything


when you set oven on bake the broil element comes on too,set the bottom oven on broil and see if the element gets hot,if not,unplug the machine or kill the power going to it,remove the element and check it with a meter to see if the element is bad,if so change out broil element if element is good you could have a broken wire or bad clock assy.there's a computer board with the clock that everything runs through,hopefully you have a bad element,if the element is coming on next thing to check is the sensor,this tells the computer how hot it is so it will turn the elements on and off,if you look behind the top panel in the back i think the paperwork is in a plastic pouch,it will tell you how to read out the sensor,i think it's 1080 ohms,or you can read out the sensor on the top oven and then check the bottom sensor and hopefully it will be a bad broil element or sensor and not the clock assy. hope this helps.

The bottom oven is heating up very slow.


If you are having problems with your electric oven heating up too slowly, not being able to maintain temperature set point, or wild variations in temperature, then you probably have a bad baking element in your oven.

The bake element is the bottom element in your oven. The life span of these elements can vary depending on the usage of your oven and the quality of the element. Anything electric has an unpredictable lifespan. Elements made on the same assembly line can vary greatly in how long they last. But when the element burns out it will need to be replaced to have your oven work properly.

The thing the fools many people is that many ovens will use the broil element to preheat the oven and then switch to using the baking element only. When this happens the oven will no longer heat and will cool down. The unit may sense this and activate the broil element again which will cause wild swings in temperature and also can cause food to burn on the top self or not bake properly.

If you can see the elements, watch them and see if they both get red hot when initially warming the oven. If only the top, broil element gets hot then you have a burned out element or a bad contacts where the element plugs into. Usually lifting the element and pulling out on it will release the element. If the contacts are discolored or pitted then they could be causing your problems. By using an ohm meter you can check the resistance of the element. If you get no continuity through the element it is no good.Bad elements will often have blisters, bubbles, or even burn in two.

If the element contacts are bad, make sure the you replace both the element and the receptacle that the element plugs into. Replacing only the element will only temporarily solve your problem.

The oven is taking forever to heat to 250...The broil works and the stove works...The oven will not heat above 250 on regular bake mode


Sounds like the bottom element is not working, Check it. If it is, there is a high limit, that shuts the oven off it it overheats. When they go bad, they shut down at lower temps. Sounds like that might be your problem

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 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?

My GE XL44 doesn't heat up to full temperature.


There are several things to check.
1) check the broil element
The broil element participates in the preheat and if the element isn't working it will take forever to reach temp.If the element is good 2)check the broil relay
If the relay does not activate when you press"broil" the control needs to be repaired.They are a few more things to check but you can start with the above.
We rebuild these controls.

Oven slow to heat


In alot of ovens preheat will cause the both the broil and bake element to come on. You are most likely getting heat from the broil element. This means either the bake element is bad or the relay on the oven control is bad. If the element shows resistance with an ohm meter then replace the oven control board.
