My Oven is an Eaton's viking (model SE3007W9) and the bottom element is not heating up. We have checked the fuses and there is one of the two blown for the oven, we swapped the broken and the working one to see if we could get the bottom element to work but still only the top element in the oven got hot :( No one seems to be carrying the element for the 30-yr old oven :( Any suggestions for a fix?

no the broil also heats up,depending on the model you have it could be a problem with the element but if it heats sometimes i don't think it will be the element it could be the thermostat or sensor or a board issue depending on the model you have.you need to get in there with a meter to check out if you're getting 240 volts to the element,the broil element get 120 volts,but the only way to tell is with a meter.if you have fuses in the house instead of breakers check the fuses,you could have a bad fuse and only be getting 120 to the bake element.if you go to remove the element to check it with a meter make sure you kill the power to it or you can damage something else.but checking the elements is a good place to start
this is not the problem of thermostat but the problem is in the heating element so check how many heating elements are there should be checked each element if one element is not good then it should change it if you get in single piece or should be changed one full set.
If you bent the bottom element out list out of the way, you may have broken the actual heating element inside of the metal sheath. Or, it could have shorted to ground. After tinkering with it more, you might have caused another short, and now both legs of 220 VAC have either a blown fuse or tripped breaker.
Reply what you find is the sondition, and I will help you troubleshoot more.
There is a bottom hidden element that is the main element used for baking and cleaning. If its not heating then the element has gone bad and needs replacing. If you have a volt meter then you can confirm this by checking the voltage between the two terminals sticking out of the rear of the range. There should be 240vac across the two. If you have that then you need a new element if you don't then you need a new control board.
Hi I have a whirlpool gold range mdl GJSP 84902 and had replaced the bottom hidden element after finding out it wasn't getting any heat. So replacement took a little figuring out. it ws easy after a removal of screws and pulling out the whole oven casing out fron the front. Anyhow I still don't get enough heat generate from the bottom element, what other cause are there. checked fuses wiring all is connected HELP ME PLEASE !!!!! thank you Paul
If the fan and the light is working,, and no heat would suspect the element has gone on the oven.. check that the thermostat light comes on.. if it lights up then the thermostat is ok.. Element is situated at the rear of the back plate inside the oven. kind regards mcdapp
You could very well have an Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board problem. There two separate circuits that control the oven BAKE and BROIL functions. If you have replaced the BAKE element, and have ensured it connected properly, the only other component that controls that function, is the EOC. If you post back with your complete model number, I can double check to make sure. The model number will be located on a nameplate somewhere around the oven door opening or lower drawer opening. The reason I need to confirm is because some ranges have a separate relay control board.
