I have an amana aer5515qaw range. the broil works, the bake will not heat up and hold a temp. It is not the element that has been tested it is not the probe that has been changed. I think it is my circuit board but I cannot find a part number for it. If you agree can you supply the part number for the circuit board? Is there anything else I can check? Is there a reset? Is the inline fuses anywhere? This is an electric range. Thanks in advance

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.
check your broil and bake elements for any breaks in the coils.....u can turn off power to unit and remove the 2 srews usually on bake wall that hold element in place and pull out a lil bit and undo connections attached to each side, make sure they dont fall back behind cavity.....or u can pull unit out and remove back panel and check the elements for continuity with a meter.. it osunds like one of the elements burnt out , hope this helps
A main wire burned off will cause both elements to not heat at the same time. It could be at the back going to one element then jump off and go to the second element. Or some times the manufacturer runs the wiring to the front on the controls, and a 3rd area that they could have a common tie point is right where the power comes into the oven. When this usually happens you'll have ok burners on top and no power completed to the bottom. OR It could be a switch that's bad and not allowing power to carry on to your oven controls at the thermostat. Let me know
Good chance your bake element is out. Could be the element or a terminal burned off. When you set to bake, normally it preheats which uses the bake and broil element. When it reaches "near" temp, the broil goes off and the bake takes over. If the bake element, (the one in the bottom), is not working, the temp will decline.
Check: Turn to 450 deg. Watch the elements, assuming you have a door with a glass, and see if both elements, top and bottom, glow red.
Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.
1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two
What is the complete model # from the sticker on the range? I will need that so I can look into this for you. I will say that I have seen, in several cases, where the oven control gets a surge and fries after an element has broken.
