SOURCE: Oven doesn't reach temperature setting

It could be the plug/receptacle that the element plugs into. It could also be that the elements have separate thermostats and that the one for the lower element is bad. If you can post the model number I can look at the electrical schematic and know for sure if it has one or two thermostats.

SOURCE: Our double oven gets warm but not hot, could this

If the fan is working o/k, and the thermostat indicator lamp is on, then it is going to be the oven element that needs replacing.
This is located at the rear of the oven behind a removeable cover.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

SOURCE: simpson 2001 series upright electric stove oven does not get hot only gets warm

It could be the oven element (behind the cover plate in the back of the oven), or the fan not blowing the heat into the oven.

SOURCE: built in oven won't get hot

hello there
Usually, when an oven won't heat up or bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it. Now if the oven It bakes poorly Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:" 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. When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem
Hope thisis very helpful for you
Best regards Michael .

My oven will not heat up to temperature


It may be the bake element that has gone out. The self clean usually uses the broil element to heat the oven. And most oven will either put 120 volts to the broil element while baking or pulse the broil element while baking. This will cause the oven to get warm but not hot. Check the oven bake element it cound be bad or a wire may have burned off.

The bake element (in over) will no longer get hot, should the element itself be replace or could it be something else? Range model RS675PXEQ0


It does sound like the bake element is probably the problem. Many ovens turn on the broil element with 120 volts to even out the heat in the oven or pulse the broil element. This may be why the oven is warm but not baking.

Oven will not heat


GE Oven: If it only gets warm, it is not getting 220 volts. It may only be getting 110 volts. First check your breaker (double pole) and reset it manually. Since it is an older oven, there may be a break in one of the wires or connections. A voltmeter will indicate just how much current you have. Be careful.

Oven elements warm but do not get hot.


whats the resistance on the elements, how many watts are they?

make sure all wires are good, could have one broke about half way. you will need to check the resistance on the elements. you need to actually check the volts and use whats its closer to 240/220 you will have to find out the ohms so you know the element will get hot. if all the wiring is good start with the elements, you need w/v will tell you the amps. e/i will give you ohms, just use the equations in the pic to figure out what you need to know. it as to have enough resistance to get hot

My old Jenn-Air W230 wall oven only gets to "warm" in the bake position - even at a temperature setting at 500 degrees. However the broil function works well. Could the problem be a bad thermostat o


the oven sensor could be bad,its a small rod inside the oven cavity near the top,or you could have a bake element with a "hot-spot" in it that can no longer pass enough current to properly heat the oven to the correct temperature setting(most elements with a hot spot will show a discolored area on the element where its been overly hot)this is the "hot-spot" it will soon break apart there

Oven not getting hot


I would recommend checking the circuit breakers, assuming that there is a 230 volt supply for the heater elements. If that is OK you might have a bad heater element.

Oven is not getting hot only warm


You may have a failed bake element, and the reason why the oven is only getting warm is the Broil element is cycling only. You may be able to remove the element and ask your local parts store to test it for continuity.

I have a Kenmore 9114012190 oven it does not heat properly anymore the top and lower elements get hot but it will hardly get anything warm that is placed in it ie; bread has to stay in it for 45 mins to...


start by checking your input power for a full 240volts,then check the terminal block for any burned off power input wires,then check power connections all the way thru the oven control and finally check for "hot-spots" in both elements(highly unlikely that both would be bad) its a discolored area that is a high resistance area not passing full operating power thru element(s)

Oven getting warm but not hot?


If it is an electric fan assisted oven, and the fan is working o/k, \then you need to fit a new oven element., usually located at rear of oven compartment.
