Get a multimeter and test the resistance of the element and ohms, be sure to turn off the power first, take the element loose, and ohm it out, and check the resistance of the element. Most multimeters have a continuity setting, and try that and see if the element has continuity. if it doesnt, chances are that that is your bad element

I understand you are having trouble with your oven not heating. Based on the little bit of information provided I could suggest the following. If you are having problems with the individual bake or broil then it is likely that the single element is the problem. However, if you find that neither element is heating then electrical connection could be causing the oven to not heat.
yes it sounds as if there is a "HOT-SPOT" on the element which will look like a dis colored spot and will be either bubbled up or have pock marks where its burning thru and can no longer pass sufficient current to heat the element fully
Hi it could be the element on the grill it maybe burning out, what slows the grill to get hot quicker. best to turn of the mains or by the main switch. and get a toorch to check around the element or use a continental reader check if it is receving 240volts
its not uncommon to have this happen. it may have overheated . causing the hi limit on the back of oven to fail, that is what you need to ck . and repl if you find it to be bad. **** .. if your want to ck the element then when the back is off range . you can ck the two elem with a ohm meter . . ****
Hi, If your electric oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself... Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..
you may want to check your broil element
turn the unit on and wait a few minutes
see if you can feel the heat from the upper broiler elemnet
some model use both elements to preheat
i dont have your productiuon number so i cannot be sure with your model
14-20 mins is the industry standard for a 350 preheat...
The best way for you to check is to swap with other element since they use the same one. FRIST turn the breaker off! Then take out the 2 screws on the element. The wires unplug, make sure they don't go back in the holes or the oven may have to come out to find them. You can pull the element out and take it to a parts house to see if they can check it with a ohm meter for you if you don't want to pull both of them out.
