SOURCE: oven doesn't work (bake nor

I would look for a Hi-Limit thermostat for the elements, usually located on the back wall of the oven, this would prevent the elements from coming on. But, you will need to remove the oven to access this part causing you this problem.
Good Luck

    Sounds like the control board needs to be tested for any communication errors and possibly replaced.

    Blodgett conv oven heating


    a couple of things to check--are you baking more product than usual at one time?does your oven have a load control dial?if so the dial could be set wrong or inoperative.if your baking to much product than normally the excess moisture could cause this.has any electrical work been done to the oven or its power line.is the fan running clockwise?when you look at the fan do you see a tube in front of it?if so check for a blockage (tinfoil).lastly you could have a bad heating element.

    Whirlpool gas oven will not heat


    most likely you have a bad ignitor,pull out the racks and remove the floor to the stove,turn on the bake,if the ignitor glows but it takes more than 40 seconds for the flame to light you have a bad ignitor even though it glows and if it doesn't glow at all the ignitor is bad,also if the broil lights on top and the bake doesn't change out the ignitor.next time send the model number and i can look up your machine to help you better.

    Oven temp will not change


    Most ovens have BAKE, BROIL and yours might have CONVECTION. Turn each on independently. If all don't work its one problem if only one doesn't its another
    Also is it the gas doesn't ignite or it ignites then no temp change (or electric gets to xx degrees but doesn't get hotter?

    Oven doesn't work (bake nor broiler) checked both heating elements there fine whats next?


    With out a model number I was unable to look up any specific information.
    First I would look for a thermo fuse on the back side. If you model has one it may be bad. If it's a older oven with a mechanical clock make sure the clock is not set to timed bake.

    My oven is not heating up properly, it either doesn't heat up or it takes a very long time to heat up. The range top works fine and the broiler works, but when i set it to bake it doesn't or takes long.


    There are two possibilities for problems with the range. If it has a "timed bake" setting for the oven then it's possible that the last person who used it neglected to return the setting to the manual mode. In "timed bake" mode, the oven will heat to approx. 160 - 185 degrees, what is called a "keep warm" temp. It will maintain that heat setting regardless of what you set the oven temp control to, as long as you're not in the time frame that it's set to bake. This will make trying to bake anything a very difficult procedure.
    The second possibility is that the oven glo coil igniter is cracked and will not heat to the proper temp to allow the electricity to flow through it to the oven gas safety valve to allow it to open and let the gas flow to the burner. These things are ceramic and for some reason crack in normal use. If it has a top broiler, that unit is obviously good. Unfortunately, the igniters are seldom interchangeable. You would need a tech to check the igniter with an ohmmeter.

    Oven takes 20 minutes to fully heat on bake - Kenmore oven plt095-2


    if its a gas model most of the time you will have a weak oven ignitor. if an electric,check to see if the bake element gets hot ,some ovens will bake with upper and lower elements so if only the upper works it will take much longer to pre-heat.good luck!

    Kenmore oven lower element sporadically heating.


    When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

    You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

    If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

    Baking with digital oven


    First let me address the temp ... Buy a meat thermometer and test it against the temp set in the oven.  Though that isn't the most accurate, it should prove whether or not it is way way off.
    Second.. convection baking takes considerably less time.... 
    Third... elevation plays a key factor on baking but not so much on cooking meat.  Baking above 2500ft elevation takes 20% longer and above.

    Broil turns ON when pressing BAKE button on RBS275PD Whirlppol oven


    Our Whirlpool oven just started doing the same thing!!!! The Delay Start Time (setting it for one minute ahead) and then Start works just fine.  But we fried the tops of three loaves of homemade bread!!!!
    Is Whirlpool just a bad brand for ovens?
