Probably no warranty. tin foil lining usually causes it to burn out. with stove unplugged, remove the screws on the plate holding the burner. pull it out, remove two wires on the element (there may be a third one, green for ground) buy new one at any hardware store (cheaper) or from the manufacturer.

Fan is working but no heat do i need a new element and how do i change it


The heat is created by the heating element - the fan moves air across the heating element. If the air is not heated - the element, wiring or thermostat (or other circuit) is not functioning properly. Most electric ranges work at 240 volts and can be deadly if contact with live parts is made. Always disconnect plug / shut off circuit breaker before working on them! If you lack the tools / skills to troubleshoot this problem, you should call a repair service to fix it for you.

Bake element does not heat up


The tech is right if he used his electical tester to test the ERC. Reliable parts at 1-800-666-0313 for your new control, however I strongly recommend you have the technician order it and do the install as the parts houses will not warrantee an electrical part sold to a customer once it is installed. It is warranteed through the technician and he can get another ERC if the new one is bad or he will absorb the loss if he misdiagnosed the repair. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists.

I have a double oven top one stopped heating up sooo i just switched the elements from the bottom to the top as to order the parts but that isnt the problem the top still won heat up


This could be a faulty circuit or sensor that will need to be replaced before the oven safety feature will disengage. If the Temp sensor is not registering as working or the load sensor it will not allow the element to heat up. This is a safety feature. You will need a repair tech to diagnose this and do the repair.

The fan and oven light in bottom oven works but not heat.


The heating element is the likely culprit as they burn out and go open
circuit..(ie ...disconnected and will not heat up )
If you can use a multi-meter , then the element can be tested using the resistance range (with the oven SWITCHED OFF )

Bottom oven doesn't heat after running self-clean cycle


Usually, when an oven won't heat, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

The oven stopped working and heating up. The top range part works.


I suspect a heating element in the oven has burned out. Some ovens have 2 heating elements, one on the bottom for baking and one on the top for broiling. If this is the case, you can try setting the oven on broil and see if the top element gets hot. Usually the bottom element fails first because food gets dripped on it. In most cases you can unplug the old heating element by just pulling on it and plug the new one just as easily. You can check the resistance of the heating element with an ohm meter. If it's burned out the resistance will be very high, probably greater than a mega ohm. In some cases you will need to take the back off the oven to replace the heating element. Just make sure the oven is unplugged and cool when you start working on it.

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?
