    Hi Elbie Potgieter, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? On what? brand? model? what is wrong? thermostat? or the heater? Does it have upper and lower heat? are they both defect? does it have a grill and does that work?

Disconnect power, remove two screws and detach from two wires either by removing screws or by removing slide in terminals. Some elements are just pull out. Don't worr if you switch wires, it works either way. DO NOT change with power on!

The baking element isn't working.


You can replace the element. The element should just plug in to the oven. You might have to remove a few bolts that hold the element in place. Get the model number of your range and call your local appliance stores, or order it online. Unplug the old element and plug in the new element.

Oven doesn't go on.


Hi.


If both baking and broiling element do not heath above a certain temperature instead, then the part to be replaced is the temperature probe, still located inside the oven cavity.


If the part that is not heating is only one element, then you may need to replace the element.
Before replacement the element can be tested removing it from the cavity and reading Ohms at the element terminals, with a multimeter set at Rx1. Disconnect power before removing the element.
In this case, selecting only baking or only broiling (depending on what element is faulty), the oven will work normally.

If the oven is a gas oven, then you have no element. In that case if the oven burners are working, replace the temperature sensor.

If replacing the temperature sensor does not help, then replace the oven electronic control.

My baking element burned into. can my oven work with just the broil element or does it need both.


I don't know if the broil element will work with the thermostat -- it's usually run full on. You could experiment and see, but the oven will not work correctly with just that element. You're used to baking with heat from the bottom and there is a difference. You might get away with it for pizza and meats -- MAYBE. But, even if it does work with the thermostat, do not try to bake with it unless you plan ahead to throw whatever you're baking away. Cakes, pies, etc. will be ruined with hea from the top. Replace the element -- they're not too expensive and they're easy to change. Just turn the power off first!

Bottom baking element remains on


From a consumer repair stand-point; I would inspect, test for continuity and or replace your oven bake heating element.

How to Replace an Oven Bake Heat Element: While ensuring power off when servicing; Remove (2) mounting screws and slowly back-out the element about 3" or so. Then, disconnect and remove wires located on each side of heat element; re-install new element.

Should problems still exist, contact me.

Baking element


oh bleep, right? well, if you're lucky this will get you going again. 1. disconnect power to range. 2. remove back metal cover just above range power cord (usually 5 quarter inch hex screws) 3. look for burnt off wire leading to/from bake element. If yes, 4. strip ends of broken wire and splice with ceramic wire nut if no 4. bad news. replace ERC (electronic range control) you fried something on the board. It's got the clock display and all the electronics behind it.

Self-clean not cleaning


I was wrong (I think).  the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said.  He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working.  In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time.  Also, I was judging by smell.  We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair.  Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.
