SOURCE: heating element

the chances are the top oven thermostat has gone and may need replacing. also check on any selector switches relating to the top oven unit they can burn out on the contacts. there is no seperate fuse.

SOURCE: bottom element doesnt work in oven, but top does.


  1. Broil element does not have welded-on legs and will touch the bottom of oven, overheating itself and will end up the same way your bake element did; besides, the bottom of the oven will corrode pretty quick
  2. Many ovens use both elements during bake cycle
  3. self clean cycle uses broil element
  4. The bake and broil elements typically have different mounting brackets and screw holes ate in different places
  5. you'd have to cover the hole, left after removing the broil element, and insulate the wires, which went to broil element
  6. the ends, protruding behind the mounting bracket may have different length and different connectors. you may end up shorting the wiring to the casing, which may in turn destroy the control board if there is one
  7. Bake elements usually cost only $40-$60. No jury rigging required.
Hope this helps ;)
Good luck!

Why isn't my oven working? After changing bake element and thermostat

Either the bottom element is defective or the wiring to it is not hooked up properly so it gets power and does its job ala the top element.

OR the control that is responsible for having power delivered to both elements is only sending power to the top element. Make sure you are not using the broil setting since that only activates the top burner.

Hello, We have a bosch hbn7052gb oven. The lower oven flashed and now the bottom oven doesn't heat up, everything else works ok the fan, the top oven etc. Can you advise what needs...

Bottom element has failed. Probably 2 screws at rear to remove & replace. Disconnect fast-ons from rear - extract element - replace. best to get electrician to do this - simple job & element should be inexensive. - Rick

The bottom element in the oven does not work. Doesn't turn on. The top element is ok. We have a Hotpoint Crystale Oven (Purchased March 1990) Model Number: KE637KW1 Vic

The bottom element has failed and will need to be replaced.

You will need to remove the element by undoing the fixing screws and the electical connectors then when you have got your replacement fit it by the same method.

Remember to turn the power off before you start.

Broiler works fine, oven will not come on ?

Check all fuses. Make sure the bottome element is seated properly. If the top and bottom element are the same you could always remove the top one and place it in the bottom (they usually just push-in and pull-out similar to the elements on the top of the stove) to see if it is just the element. A replacment element may be all you need.
Hope this helps

The oven just stopped working in our hotpoint ew51 cooker everything else still works any idea,s

the oven control switch is bad, or you have a burned out oven element top or bottom. If your broiler heat comes on, the top is o.k., then the bottom element needs replaced

Fridgiaire Gallery series Model GLEB30T8CBA lower elements dont work

I replaced the relay board for the top oven (the one with the transformer) and it works properly now. My issue was only for the top oven so you probably have to replace both relay boards since both ovens have only the top element working.

318022002 is the part number for the relay board with transformer
318022001 is the part number for the relay board without transformer

Yes the one without the transformer is more expensive for some reason.

The boards are on the top of the oven, I was able to pull out the oven about 75% of the way out of the cabinet and easily get to the boards. Just unplugged the connections and plugged them into the new board.

To get the oven out there are two small screws that go into brackets inside the top oven door. Highly recommend taking the doors off the oven to pull it out, much easier to work with.

NOTE: On my old board I noticed one solder joint that was burned out and I since I already had the new board I just replaced but you might want to check that first and see if just a solder fix gets you working again before you spend $$ on a new board.
