Single element stove oven, doesn't get hot enough


Your oven probably has a feature called a hidden bake element. The element is located beneath the floor of the oven. (Because of this, NEVER put aluminum foil on the bottom of the oven because it will get hot enough to melt the aluminum foil and make it bond to the bottom of your oven.) You can adjust the temperature of your oven through the electronic oven controls. Check your owner's manual for how to do this.

KitchenAid Model KESC307 has a broken oven heating element. Can you fix this yourself? How? How much is part?


Hello Tgilreath,

I understand that you are having a problem with you KitchenAid range. The oven element is broken and needs replaced and you would like to know the cost of the element.

I can instruct you on how to change the element in your range. However, I do not know if it is the top of bottom element and the change procedure is the same on both of them. However, when looking up the element to tell you where you can purchase and the cost I came across many different KitchenAid models that contained the numbers you gave. There should be more letters and numbers on your tag for the model.

The following is steps are how you change out your element:

1. Disconnect the power to the unit
2. Remove the lower back cover on your range (the one that sits directly behind your oven)
3. Locate the two prongs on the bad element sticking thru the oven wall and remove the wires
4. In the oven remove the racks
5. In the oven remove the two screws holding the element in place
6. Remove the element by pulling in forward
7. Install new element in Reverse

You can locate the element on Sears Parts Direct at the following web-page, however you will need the full model number http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/kesc307?pathTaken=modelSearch&prst=0&shdMod=kesc307 You may also reply to this thread and I will get you a part number and the exact page you need to order the part.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

Burners are working oven is not working ?


The heating element may be burnt out, you will need to replace this element if it does not heat up when the oven is turned on, try turning the oven to broil if the top element heat up then indeed it is the bottom element and need replacing.

Hidden bottom element not heating. Went to remove it and it had burnt through. New element doesn't get hot.


Assuming that you installed the replacement correctly, can you check the element with a resistance meter?

It's possible the replacement element you bought was faulty. But first, we want to ensure that the oven is otherwise functioning correctly. You'll need that resistance meter to check continuity along the red wire (i'm presuming) that connects your top and bottom element to your selector knob. Also make sure there are no internal fuses in your oven that may have blown.

Please remember to turn the oven off at the breaker board before working inside it.

Hope this helps, let me know.

My oven doesn't work.


before you replace the control panel, take a quick look inside the oven at the ceramic spark starter.. when you (tyr to) turn your oven on you should hear a bunch of little snap sounds.. sparks trying to light the burners inside the oven..

if you try to use the element (broil) without the gas - you'll get a better bearing on whether or not the gas element(s) are lighting or not inside the oven..

hope that helps..

Oven heat


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.

Oven will not heat to requested temperature


Shaffy, When baking only the bake element should heat. When broiling only the broil element (upper) should heat. Your oven is a Kitchenaid, you have a 5 year warranty on any electronic element or control board. You may have a temperature sensor that is not working right. The oven just might need to be calibrated, the instructions would be in your owners manual. Your bake element might be failing, it would have to be ohmed out. You also need to verify that the bake element is getting 240V. when turned on. Catriver...post back
