Question about Gibson Dishwashers
Hi, I have a Gibson stove/oven. When usuing the oven... it will heat up to the set temperature beeps then shuts off. Now it's only the oven that this is happening with. The broiler and stove top works just fine. Is it just the element or something more. Oh, another point is that it started happening after the power went off.

This is a simple step-by-step procedure.
1. Turn off the power to the oven at the breaker panel. Or slide the oven ahead and reach behind to unplug the power cord.
2. Take out the two screws holding the element bracket in place. These will be on the back wall of the oven. They are usually hex head or phillips screws.
3. Carefully pull the element toward you a little bit until you see the two wires behind it. Unscrew the wire leads and remove the bad heating element.
4. Handle the new element carefully while you attach the wires to it. Don't stretch the wires any more than you have to.
5. Line up the new element while tucking the wires back in place. Be sure not to pinch the wires between the bracket and the back wall.
6. Fasten the bracket screws, making sure they're tight.
7. Restore power to the appliance and start your oven to check if the new element heats up.
A few things to remember...
You are working with high voltage! Be sure the power is off or the oven is unplugged!
If you find one of the wires has come off the old element, simply reconnect and check your oven. Your old element may work again and you will not need to purchase a new one.
In removing any of the screws mentioned above, note that they may be difficult to lossen due to years of exposure to heat. Don't give up, they will eventually loosen.
Your new element may have some oil or other gunk on it due to the manufacturing process. Once it begins to heat, it may start to smoke. Don't panic! Any residue will eventually burn away and the smoke will cease from then on.

the broiler came on automatically??? not a sensor issue. sounds as if you have a broken wire perhaps, or a faulty control panel energizing the broil element w/o being prompted to. does it say its broiling when element comes on??

SOURCE: broiler element not working
It's either the switch that supplys power to the broiler element or it's the element itself (probably the element itself). I'd go after that first as it's not that expensive.
It's not a thermostat because if it was, the bake element wouldn't work either. The broiler element is not supposed to come on except when in the broil mode or cleaning mode.

SOURCE: heating element not coming on?
with a flashlight you can perhaps see far enough under the d/w, the heater leads plugin in the very back of machine, perhaps one of thje wires fell off during shipping/ installation. if not yoyu can removethe wire and checl heater for continuity, it should have continuity through heater. if not replace heater
