It may be the bake element that has gone out. The self clean usually uses the broil element to heat the oven. And most oven will either put 120 volts to the broil element while baking or pulse the broil element while baking. This will cause the oven to get warm but not hot. Check the oven bake element it cound be bad or a wire may have burned off.
it could be the oven temp sensor rod located near the top of the inside of the oven,or possibly the bake element has a hot spot on the element and can no longer pass enough current thru this spot to correctly heat to your settings a hot spot on the element will look discolored in this area
We have a Frigidaire CPE30S8CC2 with the bottom bake element not working. We tried to replace it with no luck. The old element does not look burnt out at all. The timer, clock and broil all work just fine. The bake button works and you can set the temp. it just doesn't actually heat up at all. There are no knobs on the controls for any cook top. it is all on a circuit board for overn only. help?
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. If you have a electric oven or a gas oven that won't heat or doesn't heat properly, here are some things you will need to check. The most likely cause of a oven not heating correctly is a defetive heating element. You have two types of heating elements in your oven. The bottom element(s) are the baking elements. The element(s) on the top are the broil elements. If you don't see the bright red glow from the element, chances are they are not working or not working correctly. If a heating element is bad, you need to replace the entire element. If your oven is warm and not correctly hot, one of the elements may be bad. In most ovens, when you preheat, both elements are used. This would make the oven to appear like it is working correctly but it is not. If the elements are not working, they might not be getting power. Test the wires to the elements with a voltage meter to make sure they are getting power before you decide to change them out. Many electrical ovens have a sensor that monitors the oven temperture. Ovens that have this sensor usually contain a digital display on the oven. The sensor could be defective. Those without the sensor use the basic mechanical system to control the oven temperature. You also want to check the thermostat sensing bulb. Make sure the bulb is good and has not come loose. Now, if you have a gas range oven that doesn't heat properly, first, you want to check your bake igniter. It may have burned out or it could be not working properly. It will be located near your burner. It is also possible that you are not getting gas to the burner. If so, it may be the gas safety valve or the igniter. You need to check your selector switch and thermostat as well. They may be defective. Always make sure you test the parts for power with a voltage meter of some type before you decide to change the part. If you have a part that appears to not be working, it may not be getting power because of a bad wire or broken connection. Thank you for your time and thanks for choosing FixYa.
hello there Usually, when an oven won't heat up or bake, it's because the
bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil-
thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element
glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It
may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns
out, you need to replace it.Now if the oven It bakes poorlyHere are two instances of when food "bakes
poorly:"When the food you're baking is done on top but not on
the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake
element may be burned out. You may get fooled into thinking it's working,
because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil
element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be
getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking
results. If the bake element is burned out, replacing it
should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot
the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.When the temperature is consistent but too high or too
low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if
the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be
lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This
would cause the oven to not heat correctly.If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely
that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor
to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these
models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display
models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your
operator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital display often use a
mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units,
you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more
accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the
back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw,
adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't
adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40
degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem Hope thisis very helpful for you Best regards Michael .
Since the oven has two heating elements, if the oven does not heat up on any condition, and both broiling and baking element are not working, then
the most common fault causing the problem is a faulty temperature
The temperature probe is located inside the oven cavity.
On most ovens there is only one temperature sensor, connected in line
on the circuit from electronic oven control to baking and broiling
When the probe fails, it will affect both baking and broiling function.
temperature probe is tested reaching the probe, cutting or disconnecting
its wiring, and testing the probe at room temperature, with a
multimeter set on impedance at Rx1. If the multimeter reads no
continuity (circuit open), then the probe must be replaced.
the temperature probe is good, then parts that may be responsible for
the fault are oven electronic control and wiring. Having both elements
failing at the same time would be rather unusual.
only one element is failing, then the fault is probably the element. In
that case you can test the element removing it from the cavity, and
testing Ohms on the element. If circuit is open , then the element must
First your broiler heating element may have gone bad and now you oven heating element may have gone bad. Using an OHM meter disconnect them and test for their value.Full scale on the meter means it is shorted. No meter movement means that it is open.Eitehr means to obtain a new element(s) and replace it/them.

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.
