Then you have a bad BAKE element, or the relay on the control board has failed. I would test the element for continuity ( since I have no model number to be more specific), and replace it if it is open or shorted, or if there is any blistering or breaks in it. Bake Element WB44K5012

It is common to have the broil element pulse on or they will send 120 volts to the broil element to even the heat in the oven. Some ovens have a preheat function that will power the broil and bake simultaneously until the oven reaches temperature then the broil element will shut down. If they both stay on red continuously through the entire bake process then something is wrong. Probably a stuck contact on the control.

Why has both top elements stop working at the same time


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).

Ov en will not heat up. no broiler heat or bake heat model number 790.96614407


Hi,

Your symptoms point to a failure in the electronic oven control board (that acts as the thermostat for the oven in this type of range). Unplug the range and remove the upper back panel to access this component. You will likely see to burn marks on the control board. The control board will need to be replaced in this situation.

Before installing the control board, I recommend that you check the bake and broil elements. Look for damage on both elements. Remove the lower back panel (with the range still unplugged ) and check the wiring connections on both elements. A damaged or shorted bake or broil element could have caused the problem with the control board.



Hope this helps.

Kenmore electric range - oven temp low and takes forever to heat


if lower element tests open with continuity meter then it for sure is bad. i would also check the wire ends that connect to the element and/or the control board, they could have loosened allowing a bad connection and low voltage to elementor burnt off.. most ovens do not use the broil element at all during the bake cycle, only during the broil cycle.. some however do utilize the broil element during baking, but at a lower wattage or something..
best of luck,

Heating element on upper oven of a wall Thermador Oven


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.

Older wall oven


First put the oven timer on manual position, then turn on to see if there is heat.
If no heat yet, open covers and check the fuse inside of the oven.
you may be able to access it from the front or you may have to remove it from the wall cabinet.
The only other problem would be the on/off switch.
You may also want to try turning on the top element(in broil mode).
If it works then I would say the bottom element is burned out.
Use of the bottom element for baking is much greater than broil, and can burn out faster.
Let me know if this helps.

possible solution for above...this would apply to any electric oven.

First of all there are two elements.. one for baking (lower) and one for broiling. (upper) . I assume the lower is not working but is the upper.

Unplug the oven. Then remove the element and have a look at and the connections.

I found that on an lolder ovens where I thought the element had burned out that the electrical connections- ( screwed or spade connection) was so badly corroded that electrical contact was poor. I might add that this was also a fire hazzard.

Delonghi range oven


Bake- Normal convection- both upper and lower heating elements.

Conv. Bake- Semi-forced convection- both upper and lower elements, heat is then distributed throughout the oven via the fan.

Broil- radiation- The heat is radiated by the ifrared broil element.

Broil & Fan- Radiation and Ventilation- The radiated heat from the infra-red broiling element is distributed throughout the oven via the fan.
