Assuming you have not removed or reconnected any of the wires I would look at the thermostat.

Sounds like a thermal overload has opened up during clean. It may be mounted on the back.

SOURCE: Top oven will not heat up

Had a similar problem. The overheat sensor had failed to the open position and the oven control would light up and you could set the temp, but it would drop to 100 degrees and then go blank.

SOURCE: Frigidaire GM deluxe electri dean (electric oven wall unit)

if you feel through the insulation you can find the two wires that attach to the element pull them through to plug the element back on but there is no plug per say but first are you sure the element is good were there no wires on the element when you removed it should have been two spade connectors with wires on them attached to the element hold my rating till you reply

    Yes it will need a new element, if the fan runs and temperature light comes on then the element is gone.

    Does the top element turn on during pre-heat on an Kenmore 790.92 range


    No, the top element was designed to only work on the broiler setting.

    My Defy 621 stove causes the earth leakage to trip after a few minutes when the oven is swithed on. The thermostat was resently replaced. Could it be one of the elements, although it seems they are...


    Most likely an element. When the heating wire expands inside the tube it contacts earth and kicks out the earth leakage. Select 'grill' and try the oven. If it does not trip out the lower element is the culprit. Replacement is easy for a reasonably adept handyman - just make sure that the mains are off!

    Top oven does not heat-although bottom oven is ok.


    Hi,
    If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

    Trying to better define the problem....

    Do you have any cuts, holes or "shorting" or tin-foil/aluminum around your bottom bake heat-element? If so, you may need to replace the baking Heat Element. (Ensure you do not use aluminum foil around your heat element to prevent your oven from getting dirty)

    To replace your baking heat element, with power off; remove 2 screws securing the bake element. Slightly tug and pull towards you for about 3 inches or so and disconnect the connecting wires at each end. Then completely remove the heat element and install new in reverse manner. Whats' you're model number?

    Oven will not heat


    Although I am not familiar with this oven, living in the u/k, I would say that without any doubt the oven element(s) have failed, more so if the fan is working, so I would have hesitation that you replace the suspect element (s)..
    Plz let me know how you get on.Thanks.
