I doubt that it is the element as it gets warm
I suspect a faulty thermostat or oven switch
best have an electrician check it out.

I recently ran the self-clean option on my GE Profile JK955B0F5BB. Now when I set the touch pad to 350 degrees or more, the oven heats up to beyond 500.


That is not a valid model number, the issue is most likely the thermostat has failed. The part is about 12 dollars.

My oven gets warm but will not reach set temperature. Is this the element


Hello Peter;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

I recently repaired a oven that would be off as much as 200 degrees. The normal operation of your oven is to rise 20-40 degrees above set temperature and shut down until it drops 20-40 degrees below set temperature, turns back on and repeats the cycle again.

Generally, there are only three components that control your oven temperature:

1.) The Heating Element - If you are getting heat your heating element may be good. To be on the safe side inspect the two connections on the back wall to ensure they are not corroded.

2.) The Thermocouple - There are several different thermocouples depending on your model and if your have gas or electric. These are easily replaced.

3.) Oven Control - Here again there are several different controls, both mechanical or digital.

I just purchased a oven thermocouple and a reconditioned digital control over the internet for under $75.00.

IF YOU HAVE A DITIGAL CONTROL - GROUND YOURSELF BY TOUCHING BARE METAL. STATIC ELECTRICITY WILL KNOCK OUT A BOARD.

So, go into the following website put in your model number and select parts. Several diagrams with part numbers will appear. Your model number is on a metal plate on the face of your oven after you open the door.
Fine your thermocouple and oven control. Copy these part numbers and search the internet for best price.
First, replace the thermocouple. If this solves your problem then return the control for credit if not install the oven control. The highest probably is you have a bad thermocouple

While roasting a chicken in the oven, a "fizzle" was heard and the lower element shut off, the light on the dial did not work although it would go on when switching it to broil but there was still no heat,...


your heater element went (the metal rod that heats up inside oven). can easily find replacement and not hard to do but make sure you shut off power/ unplug oven. usually a couple of screws where the element goes into back of oven to hold it in place. then can pull element out enough to see the screws that attatch the wires the the element. most appliance repair shops carry them in stock. may be easier to take old one in to match up then trying to locate the make model and seriel number you would need wuthout it.

Element broke, replaced, now oven heats very slowly and only up to 255


This is a symptom of only having 120 VAC power to the oven. When your other element borke it is possible that it tripped only ONE Circuit Breaker. Try resetting the Range CB in the main power panel by physically pushing BOTH breakers to off and then back to on. Then test the range to see if it heats correctly. Let me know the result please.

Also if the problem persists respond with your model number so I can look up a wiring diagram.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Oven powers up but doesn't heat


When you turn the control to 350 or so the bottom heating element should heat up, if it don't, turn the control to broil if the top element heats up it is most likely the bottom element has burnt out and need replacing. You can find the elements at Home Depot or Lowes, if not in stock at the store, you can order it inside the store.

Dacor 1.5 years old convection oven...not heating


Flip both oven breakers HARD to the "off" position, then back on. If it did not help - you might have a problem with a relay on the control board or a failed bake element.
Grab a flashlight and check the element on the bottom (if you can see it). DO NOT TOUCH THE ELEMENT! If you find any bulging or cracking on the element - it'd out. Before removing the element turn the oven off on the breaker panel.
PS Model number is needed to find the part numbers.

I have a frigidaire oven model # PLEB30S8CCB won't get above 290


The coils should glow red when working. If the lower (bake) element does not glow it may be burnt out. Some ovens cycle the bake and broil elements during preheat and that mey be why you are getting some heat.
