Question about Ovens
Themador Built-In Oven, Model SMW272. Bottom heating element will not heat when touch panel for "bake" is touched. Oven will reach about 200 degrees and cycle off. "Convection Roast" and "Broil" cammands work. Oven will hold reach and maintain temperature set for Convection Roast.
With all that you said, I would suspect an open or faulty element. It is pretty much the most obvious solution.
If you have any electronically ability and you are going to open the oven, use an ohm or resistance meter, check the amount of ohms and use the upper element as a reference for the correct reading.
The element will either read open or good. You can use a light tester also and if the light lights between the two connectors of the elements, then it is ok and look elsewhere.
