Assuming that you installed the replacement correctly, can you check the element with a resistance meter?

It's possible the replacement element you bought was faulty. But first, we want to ensure that the oven is otherwise functioning correctly. You'll need that resistance meter to check continuity along the red wire (i'm presuming) that connects your top and bottom element to your selector knob. Also make sure there are no internal fuses in your oven that may have blown.

Please remember to turn the oven off at the breaker board before working inside it.

Hope this helps, let me know.

How do you remove the moulded Hidden Bake Element from the inside whirlpool ceramic range accubake system


first, remove power from the unit before doing ANYTHING! second, remove the back cover of the machine, this will expose another smaller panel with 4-6 screws in it running along the bottom edge across the back. after removing the screws you will have to gently BEND the panel down until you can see the wiring leading to the hidden bake element. cut the insulation covering the back of the element... be sure new element is placed in the exact location of the old one to avoid shorting the bake terminals to the metal cover, then reverse the removal process...

There is no heat


This may sound a bit elementary, but have you cleaned the lint trap thoroughly? You'd be amazed at how many people don't. If so, it is probably your heating element. Remove the back panel (which is more work than you might think with the hidden welds, and bottom screws). You will see the thermostat hanging off the heating element. Carefully run the machine without touching the unit at all, and see if you can feel any heat emanating off of the element. That will tell you right away. It's a relatively easy, and inexpensive repair.

Oven heat


There is a bottom hidden element that is the main element used for baking and cleaning. If its not heating then the element has gone bad and needs replacing. If you have a volt meter then you can confirm this by checking the voltage between the two terminals sticking out of the rear of the range. There should be 240vac across the two. If you have that then you need a new element if you don't then you need a new control board.

How to replace a fan bake oven hidden element


Before attempting any repairs, make sure the power is turned off! If you are unsure or not confident, please call a service technician.
The element is behind a cover that is held in place either by screws or clips. Once the cover is removed, the element will be visible. The element will be screwed in place by a number of screws on the base plate and around the element itself. After removing the screws, pull the element fron the rear of the oven. the wires should be attached to the element via lugs. The lugs need to be unattached from the element. Before removing the wiring, take note of the connections so that reinstallation can be carried out.
