The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. ( by placing the each of the meter prongs on each end of the heater element connectors) If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced. Depending on the manufacturer of the element, you will normally read between 19 ohms and 115 ohms

Only half of the element is heating up


Are you referring to the oven grill element.? Most have a double element in them, An inner and an outer. Basically for different heat settings. ie. single grill/ double grill

Listing your make and model may help an expert answer your question more accurately.

Do you have your operators manual.?

Ignis AXL 905/IX oven and prob is food is cooking on top but not below. Two elements at top. Inner on when in oven mode, outer on in grill . Bottom of oven not warming evenly and burning top of food


Your bottom element is not working and that is why foods placed on top heat up but the undersides are not affected as much.

You need even heat on both sides of the food. Get a new element and replace.

I have a eurolec double built under oven. When I turn the bottom oven on the rcd at the house consumer unit pops. The top oven works fine...


The elements in ovens consist of an outer earthed metal tube and an inner resistive element that is insulated from the outer tube by what is effectively a compressed ceramic insulating powder. If the element is not used for a while, enough atmospheric moisture, (or from spills, etc), can penetrate the insulation to cause enough earth leakage to trip the RCD. If the RCD is tripping at the correct level, (They can get too sensitive - see this article here:
Diagnosing RCD earth leakage breaker nuisance trips), then the only long term solution is to replace the element, although they can sometimes be dried out by heating them.

It would appear that the main oven element is not working. I had a power cut whilst using the oven recently and have only just realised that the oven will not heat up. Everything else is working ok. If it...


If it is a fan forced oven, the element is round in shape and goes around the fan blade on the back wall of oven.
To replace: Turn off power!!
-Remove side racks from oven, then remove rear panel.
-You should now see fan blade and fan element.
-You need to remove oven from cavity, then remove rear outer panel.
-You can now access element- it will be held in place by 2 small nuts either side of element wiring connections. Disconnect element wires, unscrew nuts. Element is now removed!
Reverse procedure to reassemble and test. If oven is heating OK, also check main oven thermostat is regulating temperature (ie clicks on and off), as sometimes thermostat can fail if element has blown

Replacement fan element fails to heat up.


two thoughts
is the thermostat open circuit?
there is sometimes an overheat stat adjacent to the element behind the outer casing. this can go open circuit

Oven doesnt heat up


remove back panel inside oven and element will be exposed. this element is probably faulty and you can often see the damage
to replace, take the outer rear panel off and element fixings are in view - easy job usually

Replace recepticles for large elements. It is the part that the heating elements go into. And while you are at the appliance store, pickup a new bake element for your oven. Just unscrew element from oven wall and install new one.

No heat in oven


the element may be open circuit, test it by a continuity test. the actual element is inside the metal outer surrounded by a ceramic compound -you will not be able to see any breaks hence the electrical test.
