Range heating problem

I have a Maytag range that is only 3 years old. It would not heat up so I replaced the heating element. It now will heat up to 350 but it will not get any hotter. I'm also not 100% sure that it is really getting up to 350. What should I replace next? Or should I just call a repair man?

I have an electric stovetop and did a self cleaning it would not unlock so i turned off breaker and was able to unlock when i did the baking element was so brittle that it snapped and now all the burn

Ok,... First, and foremost, stop using the self clean. It takes the temperature up to 900 deg F, and creates all sorts of other problems with the lock motor and the walls and the bake/broil elements. Use a Low odor Easy-off spray cleaner to clean your oven from now-on, please.

Now, the bake element needs to be replaced. If you have the model number (found on the body of the Range behind the lower drawer, if you pull it out) I can look-up the manufacturer's suggested part to be replaced. You may also need to replace the broil element, but that usually is the last element to burn-out as most people don't use the broil function of an oven.

You will have to pull the range away from the wall, and unplug it before you attempt to replace any parts. No need to have 240 VAC/30 Amps running through your body. There are several black 1/4" screws that secure the back panel on the oven section to the body (about 6 to 8) and they will have to be removed to pull and replace the wires on the oven bake and/or broil elements. You will also have to go to the oven door (on the front of the range) open it, and remove the two 1/4" screws that secure each element to the body before you can change-out the element(s). The most popular bake elements for GE Ovens are part #WB44K10005 and/or WB44T10010, but there are other Bake elements. Will need the model of your Range to ID the correct element and the cost.

Now as for the rest of the burners on the stovetop not working, they are usually independent from the oven functions, which are wired into the controller in the center of the range control console, but there are a couple of GE models that wired the stove burners into the oven timer/controller. If this is the case, then you may also need to replace the oven timer/controller.

If the stove elements are independent and are only wired to the Infinite switches that control the front left, rear left, front right, rear right burners, than the problem is either with the actual radiant heat burner elements or the infinite switches that independently control each burner. I would still need a model number for the Range to help you more with this.

Hope this is of some help.

The top heating element comes on when you call for broil and your bottom comes on when you are set to bake. If the bottom one is not coming on when you set to bake then it is most likely bad and needs to be replaced.

How to replace the bottom element on an Ilve. It is hidden below the floorplate of the oven. It is a free standing 90cm oven.

most floorplates have two thumbscrews in the back . you just unscrew them , stick your hands into the slits on the sides of the floor plate where the heat comes out of, and gently lift.

Offset venting of new microwave/range hood to old fixed venting

You might try your local furnace or heating shop as they can usually custom make ducting and may be able to do this for you, but I am sure it will cost. I have had similar problems and usually a good sheet metal man can help.

I have a 8 yr old Whirlpool microwave that will turn on but does

If it runs but will not heat you most likely have a bad magnetron. Check the owners manual some magnetrons had a nine year part warranty. If yours doesn't it may be more cost effective to purchase a new microwave.
