Question about Ovens
Hit the bake button and put it to any temp. Sometimes the lower element will glow, other times it will not. Oven will get warm but you can touch the lower element and not get burned. Takes 20+ minutes to preheat. The broiler is operating at both settings.
When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.
You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.
If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.
