Question about Ovens
The switch closes and the door locks in self clean mode but the elements are not heating up.
It would be very rare for both elements to be bad at the same time. Many times there is a thermal fuse in the circuit that will shut off one side of the power to the elements. This would prevent the elements from energizing in regular bake and broil as well as self clean. If it is only in self clean then there is a swicth possibly in the latch that is preventing the self clean from working.

Testimonial: "both sides of the elements are getting 120v. Are they supposed to have 240v going to each side or 120v per side totaling 240v. could it still be the thermal fuse?"

sure its possible, sounds like you've blown an over limit thermostat behind stove, gets too hot and for safety reasons cuts off unit untill replaced

the problem was fixed by opening the panel between the oven cavity and the touch panel just behinf the door. you can look through the grill but to trip the reset you must unscrew the panel. you will find the reset back behind the wires Looks a red button nestled on top not very open but it should be there> i do have to say i found a step by step description on this site. but right now i can't tell you who exactly he was.

The control switch may be bad on it. If there are 2 elements on the top, they both are not bad at the same time.Check to see if the wires have not burned off the control switch first. Check to see if your breakers are O.K. Turn them both(maybe 3) off and then reset.

like another person stated-from the front behind the door, take off the 6 screws and the cover by the latch. there is an "oven hi temp limit switch" It is crome with 2 heavy black wires connected to it. On the back side of this is a small red button which will reset the limit switch. I had the same issue (everything worked except the any of the heating elements) and quickly resolved.

I found I have this exact problem. Same bake preheat issue: I can bake if I set broil first. However, the oven doesn't work if I press bake first. The control board has already been replaced a couple times over the years. Is this another replacement??

Hello kimberlymaso - If you are referring to the bake element, but the broil element works then you would need to just replace the bake element. If both your bake and broil element does not work, then there might be a problem with the wiring communication. However, if the oven does not bake and/or broil but the cook top works; contact a professional to diagnose the EOC (electronic oven control).
