The back of the oven has to be removed also so you can disconnect the terminals from the element.

SOURCE: Dacro Wall oven (electric) does not heat past 345 degrees on bake or convection bake but broiler works and bottom oven works fine (for bake, convection bake and broil).

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

HOW TO REMOVE FAN FORCED ELEMENT


All I needed was a phillips screw driver, a small hex socket drive and an 8mm wrench.

1. Turn off the mains at the switch board. There might be a switch near the oven or stove too, turn that off as well. Check that the power is off!
2. Remove the screws holding the oven to the cupboards. Mine was held in by 4 timber screws on the edge.
3. Slide the oven out of the wall. I used a small table to support it.
4. Remove the hex drive screws that hold the top lid on.
5. Using a trusted multimeter CHECK THAT POWER IS OFF! There are now exposed power terminals.
6. Undo the supply power terminals and remove the cable. I taped mine up.
7. Remove the back cover - more hex screws.
8. Pull the spade terminals off the heater element.
8. Inside the oven remove the shelves and side racks. They pop off the wall.
9. Pull the rear fan shield towards you. It should pop out at the top and then lift off 2 small tabs.
10. Remove the phillips screw at the bottom of the heater element.
11. Remove the 2 spring clips.
12. The element can now slide down and towards you.
13. Replace the element and put it all back together in reverse order.

How do I replace my oven element


Hello.


Theoven is a particularly sturdy piece of kitchen equipment. It can handle dailyuse and still perform as needed. But of course, as with everything over time,the oven can eventually have some things go wrong with it. The first signs maybe subtle, like your cake not being cooked through, or you may notice the oventaking much longer than usual to come to temperature. When looking inside theoven as it is heating, you may notice tiny sparks along the bake element. Anyof these symptoms may mean it's time to replace the bake element.Instructionsand tools below Screwdriver, Newbake element, Electrical tape, Fiberglass tape, Flashlight1 The first step when it comes to working on yourelectric oven is to turn the breaker off at your home's service panel, orbreaker box. This is extremely important, because most electric ovens require220-volt electricity to operate, and that voltage won't only hit you hard, itcan kill you. Place a sign on your breaker panel stating that you are workingon the electrical. As an added precaution, unplug the oven from the walloutlet. Remove the drawer below the oven chamber to see if the plug isaccessible from there. Otherwise, you may have to pull out the oven a bit tounplug it.2 Be sure that the oven has not been used in a whileand that the elements are completely cool. Remove all of the racks from insidethe oven. If it makes it more comfortable, you can even remove the oven door byopening it and sliding it off of the "arms" that hold it in place.3 Locate the bake element. It resembles a metal tubethat's been bent into a square shape and it is located on the bottom of theoven's interior. It can be quite dark inside the oven, so grab your flashlightand shine it to the rear of the oven's interior to locate where the bakeelement is connected to the oven wall.4 There will be two screws holding the bake element inplace. Remove the two screws and place them somewhere where you will not losethem. Now, pull the bake element out of the oven wall. There will be wiresattached to each "leg" of the bake element. Note: There is usuallynot much wire to work with, so do not pull too hard. Once you have about 4 or 5inches of wire exposed, place a piece of black electrical tape over the wire atthe point where it enters the oven. This will help keep the wire from fallingback inside the hole.5 At the point where the wires are connected to thebake element, you should see a screw. Remove the screws and separate the wiresfrom the bake element. Keep the old element for reference when shopping for anew element that matches the old one exactly.6 Install the new element by connecting one wire toeach leg of the element with the screws, just as they were with the oldelement. Wrap a layer of white fiberglass tape around the terminals. Push thewires back through the holes in the rear of the oven until the bake element isback in position. Use the screws to secure the new element to the oven wall, asbefore.7 Replace the oven door if you removed itearlier. Plug in the oven, then turn the breaker back on. Turn on the oven andtest the new element. You may notice some smoke coming off of the element as itheats up for the first time. This is ok, as these are just oils burning off ofit. The smoke will stop in a few seconds.Thanks.

I have a Thermodor SCD302ZP Double Convention Oven. Does the lower heating element come out from the front of oven or do you need to gain access to rear in order to test/replace it? I removed the...


that model number doesn't come up.first make sure the power is off to the machine,you have 240 volts going to that element,all the thermodor ovens i worked on come out from the front,there should be two phillips screws holding it in place,remove the screws and pull the element forwards,some of them you have to lift the element up the end that goes through the wall is bent up so the wires don't hit the metal wall behind it.on some the wires are very short so don't be surprised if they pop into the hole on you,try to hold it with a needle nose,have the other element in there and stick the wire right on the new element so you don't loose the wire into the hole,if that happens you might have to pull the oven and remove the back panel.good luck and i hope this helps you

My whirlpool electric oven broils but doesnt bake. model rf385pcwn1


Hi
The possibilities are a bad Bake element, a broken wire to the Bake element or a bad control board.
You have to remove the Bake element or to pull the range off the wall to perform the troubleshooting and find out which part is bad.
You have to inspect the wires, then remove the wires from the Bake element and check the element for continuity.
If there is nothing wrong then you have to check for 120VAC between each wire and ground and for 240VAC between the wires while the control calls for Bake. If there is no proper voltage then the control board has to be replaced.


However To remove old element, there are 2 bolts/screws on the back of the oven, attached to the element. There will be a silver bar holding the screws/bolts to the back of the oven.
Remove these screws/bolts with either a screwdriver or pliers by turning to the left.

After unscrewing the bolts, pull element out. It will have the electrical wires attached to it with a clamp on each side. Pull wire clamps up to remove the element.
Remove new element from box. Slide new element clamps up into the wires coming out from the back of your oven. (There will be "legs" to hold the element up from the bottom of the oven. These go on the bottom for support of the element).
Tighten existing screws/bolts onto oven through the holes in silver bracket. Do not tighten too much, just make sure is secured.
Turn electricity breaker on and plug oven into outlet. Turn on to 350 and see if it heats up.

Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.

I have a GE oven that the oven part only doesnt come on, the top burners and broiler come on, is this something I can fix?


Most likely a bad bake element. Turn off the power to the range. Remove the oven racks. Remove the retaining screws holding the bake element to the rear wall. Carefully pull the element terminals out of the rear wall. CAREFUL now,the wires will be short. Remove the wires. If you have a volt ohm meter you can test the element for continuity. Set the meter for ohms or continuity and touch one meter lead each to the element terminals. If you get no reading replace the element with a new one. If you do get a reading your ERC clock is bad.

How do i change the element on a whirlpool akz452?


Turn the power OFF to the oven. Remove the oven racks. Unscrew the element where it enters the back wall of the oven from inside the oven. Carefully pull the element leads out of their respective holes. Carefully because the wires will be short.
Remove the wires from the element terminals. Place the wires on the replacement element. Reinsert the terminals into the holes and replace the mounting screws. Turn the power back on and bake me a dozen cookies.

Bake element does not heat


After removing the racks, rack rails and the back plate I removed the 2 screws the hold the bake element. Lifting the front of the bake element up and carefully pulling the element out and gently moving the element so the connector clear the hole I was able to disconnect the wire. After testing for continuity with an ohm meter (non found) I determined the element need to be replaced. $37 and 45 minutes total.

Double oven / convection not working


It is likely that the convection element is burned out and needs to be replaced. If all other functions are working then this is the place to start. Teh back panel inside of the oven can be removed by removing the 4 visible philips screws on it. The element should look smooth and round, if not then it needs to be replaced. Be sure to turn power off to the oven before replacing it. Remove the screws that fasten the element to the back wall and gently pull the element away from the wall an inch or so. the wires will be exposed and can be unclipped from the element do not let them fall inside of the back of the oven or you will have to remove the oven from the wall to get at the back panel. Install the new element in the reverse procedure. If the element looks good then it will have to be tested with a multimeter to verify that it is still good before proceeding to check the selector switch for burn marks.
