SOURCE: oven will not pre heat
Simple to test a bake element or range top burner element.
First, visually see if the element has molten gobs on the tubular-looking element, and/or is cracked. It will be obvious.
And if you do not see anything obvious, you should still test the element with a voltmeter. Many elements are set up so you can unscrew a screw where the element gets attached at the inside rear of the oven, and then pull the element into the stove a couple inches, enough to unhook the wires and then be able to put a voltmeter tester on each end of the element (set to the OHMS setting) to see if the element has continuity.
IF the element is good, then...
...You can also then make sure the wires are not contacting metal(BE SURE OF THIS),... and then plug the stove back in and test the wires to see if you have 220 volts. If not see, which of the two wires has 110. Then if you know which one does not have the 110, then you UNPLUG THE STOVE again and then access the rear of the stove and trace that dead wire from the element plug-in back in the range. You will physically be able to trace that wire.
When working with 220 elements in anything...please realize that usually one leg wire of the 220 volts (in other words, 110 volts) is always 'hot' even though the switch to it is off!! Always remember that!
