After temp is set bottom oven will not heat up to desired temp

I set temp to 350 but oven will not heat up to desired temp but I do hear clicks as if the oven is heating up. What could be wrong?

    Thanks for the helpful response. In the bake mode, if I set the temperature to 350 or more, the oven will heat up to 275 but it will take a very long time to get there. However, it won' get any hotter. The broiler seems to work okay.

You probably have a burnt out or shorted out lower bake element in you r lower oven. it sometimes will actually break apart or look like it sparked thru the black tubular section. it is common and will cause no heat during the bake cycle.
you could try to do a broil and see if it gets hot and that would let you know the control is ok and just needs the lower bake element.

My oven heats up, but then does not maintain the temp.


If it has a pilot then I would say the thermal couple is bad. If it has a glow type ignitor then the ignitor is bad.

Once you put the desired temperature, select a cook time and it should solve the heating issue. Atleast that what worked on mine.

Electric Oven not getting hot enough


Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.

1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two
