Open door if you can see screws at element ends remove them and change or you will have to do it from the rear

SOURCE: Electric Oven doen't heat

cdkd, there should be a TC0, on the back of the oven. Thermal cut out. You want to check to see if it is open. You will have to pull the oven out enough that you can remove the back panel cover and check it. The lower and upper oven should have one. It's a very cheap part to replace. If this TCO fails, no heat. Check this first before buying a new board. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Top oven will not heat up

Had a similar problem. The overheat sensor had failed to the open position and the oven control would light up and you could set the temp, but it would drop to 100 degrees and then go blank.

    Yes it will need a new element, if the fan runs and temperature light comes on then the element is gone.

    If it is fan assisted, and the fan is working o/k, then the chances are it is the element.
    This is usually located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover.
    Normally a straightforward repair

    MAKE SURE POWER IS OFF !!!!
    Please rate my solution.
    Thankyou.

    Whirlpool gold double oven model #gbd307pdb. upper oven lower heating element burned out. replace lower element. it does not get hot. upper element heats up. control board works. is this the thermos


    You will have to see if there is power to the element. It is possible that the relay contacts burned when the element burned out. There is a fusable link but this would shut down both the top and bottom elements. If the relay is burned out the control board will need replacing or rebuilding.

    The oven does'nt seem to be able to heat up above 150, the fan is working, the bottem half of the oven does'nt seem to heating up. Is this fixable or do i need a new oven?


    Hi.

    If the part that is not heating is only the bottom element, and the top element is heating regularly, then you may need to replace the lower element.
    Before replacement the element can be tested removing it from the cavity and reading Ohms at the element terminals, with a multimeter set at Rx1. Disconnect power before removing the element.

    If both baking and broiling element do not heath above a certain temperature instead, then the part to be replaced is the temperature probe, still located inside the oven cavity.

    Regards.

    Ihave a whirlpool oven model gbs277pdo1 that will


    this could be the timer is set to auto this data sheet might help For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS 1, If the fan motor in the back of the oven is going round and the temperature light is on (normally little red light), but there is no heat then you will probably need a new oven element, these are generally very easy to fit and readily available from our website these can be tested with a electric meter.
    To gain access to the element you will have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you will see the fan and element, if you look closely at the element you will probably see a small hole burnt in it where it has blown. Sometimes however there is no evidence of a fault but the element is open circuit ie: broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Some elements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nuts from the rear of the machine.
    2, If your fan oven is getting warm but takes a very long time to cook or is burning the food more on one side than the other, then you need to check if your oven fan motor is working you will see the blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fan motor is not blowing the heat into the oven then you need To replace the oven fan motor is a little more expensive and a bit more involved.
    3. If you have the opposite problem ie: your oven is over heating and burning everything then you will need to replace your oven thermostat
    4, A quite common and easily overlooked answer is if your oven is not working at all ie: no heat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timer into AUTO mode, simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.

    I ran a cleaning cycle on the lower oven. Now it won't heat


    the answer is the thermal sensor, mine has gone bad everytime I clean the oven. Solution, run a fan on the oven while you are self cleaning, this keeps the outside heat away from the unit. Pain to replace the sensor, its in the middle back of the oven, have to pull the whole unit out.
