Frigidaire cfef357bc1 Upper Oven element not getting hot enough

The upper element of the oven doesn't seem to be getting hot enough to cook the top of the food. The element will heat up to a glowing red when used in the broil mode but when preheating for baking the lower element heats up to a glowing red but the upper will not. It does get hot but not nearly as hot as it should.
What controls the amount of current passed through the element to generate the heat level

SOURCE: Broiling works but baking does not work

CHECK FOR 240VOLTS AT THE TERMINALS OF THE BAKE ELEMENT. GAIN ACCESS BY REMOVING THE BACK PANEL OF THE RANGE. SOMETIMES THE TERMINAL WILL BURN OFF OF THE WIRE GOING TO THE ELEMENT. THE WIRE WILL JUST BE HANGING THERE. BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE OVEN BEFORE REMOVING BACK PANEL. IF THE WIRE IS BURNT, REPLACE THE TERMINAL AND REATTACH TO THE ELEMENTS TERMINAL. IF THE TERMINAL IS DAMAGED, REPLACE BAKE ELEMENT.
IF THERE IS NO VOLTAGE TO THE ELEMENT, REPLACE CONTROL.

SOURCE: Oven not heating KitchenAid KERC506HWH3

Hi,
I have a one year and 2 month old KitchenAid KEMC308KSS03 Wall oven/microwave combination.
After a self cleaning cycle the oven would not heat again. Eveything else works fine the microwave, controls, etc.
The problem is the thermal limiter switch that KitchenAid used. It is a one shot thermal limiter that opens if the back of the oven goes above 120degrees C and does not reset when it cools down.
The KitchenAid PN is 9759243 BUT don't replace it with the same part if you have this problem. KitchenAid want $84 for this silly thing and it a piece of junk. Buy a PN 317-1368-ND from DigiKey Inc. 1-800-344-4539. This is a 120 degree C thermal limit switch but it will RESET itself when the oven cools down so if it happens again you won't have to pull the oven. This part cost s $6.60 from DigiKey and is a much better part than the original one from KitchenAid.
The switch is on the back of the lower oven, there is a cover that comes off and you will see it screwed to the back with two wires connected to it with faston terminals. It is an easy permanent fix for this problem.
KitchenAid is ABSOLUTELY NO HELP with this (as ususal).
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Tappan Millennia range's baking component doesn't work.

Your ignitor has gone out or is no longer drawing enough current to open the gas valve. Replace the oven ignitor and it will fix your problem.

GE standing electric oven range. Oven lower element will not heat up.. only gets Luke warm, can still touch it, although the upper oven element gets very hot. What could the issue be?


Sounds like the bake element - do a visual check and look for blistering or cracking. If it looks normal, unplug the oven (or flip breaker for wall oven) and then you can remove the screw holding the element and pull it forward enough to unplug it and do a continuity test with a multimeter. If it test bad, replace the element.

Heating element on upper oven of a wall Thermador Oven


The control switch may be bad on it. If there are 2 elements on the top, they both are not bad at the same time.Check to see if the wires have not burned off the control switch first. Check to see if your breakers are O.K. Turn them both(maybe 3) off and then reset.

Oven heats up very slowly and does not get very hot


Check your power to the oven at the terminals where the power cord connects.Should be 220 volts. Also check the terminals of the bake element for loose connections or a burnt wire.
