Its an electric range, believe your lower element is either bad or wire to it burned off or the thermostat or control to it are bad. 
FYI the Broil element is upper and lower element is bake. Just so we are on the same page. Sorry if you already knew this.

The most common thing is a bad lower element where food has "boiled oveer" and got on the lower element causing a cold/hot spot and thus burns it out prematurly. 
Shut off breaker, no power to unit, remove lower element. Inspect wires in back of element if tight and connected, keep wire ends out and test for voltage (usually 220-240 VAC) on the wires. No voltage here then the problem is above at the thermostat or operation selector switch or wiring or a safety  control and may even be in the clock timmer. If you have power there all these items are ok and again go to the element power off. Remove 1 wire which one dosnt matter. test for continuity of the element. It will proably read HIGH or infinity. My guess is anything over 30 to 70 ohms the element is bad.. the part number used to be located someplace on the element. Keep it together and un bent as much as possible becaused you may have to use the measuremants to secure a part number of  a generic element. 
Hope this helps. If so please grade me accordingly and good luck.

All the lights and buttons work/sound on control panel. Broiler oven works but baking element not working. Replaced baking element with new, but still doesn't work. Convection fan works, light works,...


Manufacture and model would be nice ohm out the bake element might be open some are in the oven cavity others are hidden below the lower oven plate and have to check from the rear by removing back cover in the bake mode the broil element element cycles on/off thats why you have some heat.

Kenmore electric range oven baking element does not go on eveything else works


The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced.

Oven won't work. Maytag Performa Stove. Broiler and burners work.


sounds like your bake element is gone
but the model number would help a great deal

pul out the stove unplug it, take off the back, and inspect the connections on the bottom element

if its gas its probably your ignitor
take out the racks
take out the bottom
set to bake
you should see a very bright light within a minute
if you dont thats the ignitor

anyway both parts are available
and both are a pretty starigt forward repair

My stove will not heat using bake but will work for broiler so I know it is not a heating problem. Help!


this model is not a dual fuel, and you do have a heating problem, there are two burners, a bake burner and a broil burner, both have ignitors. You have a bad bake ignitor.

Trying to better define the problem....

Do you have any cuts, holes or "shorting" or tin-foil/aluminum around your bottom bake heat-element? If so, you may need to replace the baking Heat Element. (Ensure you do not use aluminum foil around your heat element to prevent your oven from getting dirty)

To replace your baking heat element, with power off; remove 2 screws securing the bake element. Slightly tug and pull towards you for about 3 inches or so and disconnect the connecting wires at each end. Then completely remove the heat element and install new in reverse manner. Whats' you're model number?

You probably need to replace the baking igniter, (Igniter,bake burner
Part Number: AP4102011 made by MAYTAG).

I tested the igniter function by (CAREFULLY) jerryrigging a bridge to wire the BAKE igniter to the BROILER controls.(Push/click plugs accessible by opening up the stove back) Testing thebroiler controls this way the bake element remained cold. I then did the same test but connected the BROILER igniter to the BAKE controls and got a good glow. This indicates that the controls work but the Bake igniter's faulty!

You can access the bake igniter by removal of 2 screws at the front at the platform just inside the top oven. The broil and bake igniters appear to be identical but the push/click plugs are reversed at the back of the stove. (hence the CAREFUL jerry rigged wiring bridge.)The parts and wiring are pretty simple and visual once you get thecovers off. Opening up the stove back is just a matter of removingseveral screws. UNPLUG the stove before you work. If you test as Idescribed, make all connections while UNPLUGGED and then plug it inonly for the brief test. Unplug again while disconnecting/reconnecting.Hope this helps.
