Why isn't my oven working? After changing bake element and thermostat


Either the bottom element is defective or the wiring to it is not hooked up properly so it gets power and does its job ala the top element.

OR the control that is responsible for having power delivered to both elements is only sending power to the top element. Make sure you are not using the broil setting since that only activates the top burner.

Top Oven overheating already replaced sensor.


have an electrician check the element wiring as it should only get red when on full heat but then be controlled by the thermostat
it appears that the element is bypassed the thermostat or the thermostat is failed
for the bottom not to get red is a further indication of incorrect wiring of the elements

Ge oven will not turn off after replacing element


If the element stays on even when the control is shut off it is most likely that the contacts are welded together in the control. This usually happens when the element blows out with a big bang. If this is the case the control will need replacing.

My oven does not start


Hello there:
It doesn't work at all dot_lineone.gif 1. No power
Make sure there's power getting to your range, oven or cooktop. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the appliance, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced. ^ top clear.gif Top element doesn't work dot_lineone.gif 1. Top element
If the element only works partially or not getting red hot at the "Hi" setting, the problem might be with a burned out receptacle that the element plugs into. If this is the case, replace both the element and the receptacle.

You can usually tell when the element itself burns out. It might have small holes or bubbles on the coil. Replace the element, if found defective.

2. Infinite switch
Another reason, why the element would not start, might be a defective infinite switch (located behind the control panel, with the burner knob on its shaft). Replace the switch if found defective.

Bottom element doesnt work in oven, but top does.


NOPE!
  1. Broil element does not have welded-on legs and will touch the bottom of oven, overheating itself and will end up the same way your bake element did; besides, the bottom of the oven will corrode pretty quick
  2. Many ovens use both elements during bake cycle
  3. self clean cycle uses broil element
  4. The bake and broil elements typically have different mounting brackets and screw holes ate in different places
  5. you'd have to cover the hole, left after removing the broil element, and insulate the wires, which went to broil element
  6. the ends, protruding behind the mounting bracket may have different length and different connectors. you may end up shorting the wiring to the casing, which may in turn destroy the control board if there is one
  7. Bake elements usually cost only $40-$60. No jury rigging required.
Hope this helps ;)
Good luck!

Broiler works fine, oven will not come on ?


Check all fuses. Make sure the bottome element is seated properly. If the top and bottom element are the same you could always remove the top one and place it in the bottom (they usually just push-in and pull-out similar to the elements on the top of the stove) to see if it is just the element. A replacment element may be all you need.
Hope this helps

Whirlpool oven heating element


Are you trying to replace the stove top element, or oven element? For the stove top element, just lift up the side opposite where it plugs in and pull straight out.

The oven element usually have one or two screws holding a plate in near where the elements go into the back of the oven. Remove the screws and pull straight out. Reverse the procedure to install a new element. The top broil element will be secured in with a couple brackets to hold it up, these must be unscrewed, removed, and then pull the broil element out.

Remember to turn off power to the range before replacing any of the elements.
