Question about Kitchen Ranges
Oven does not heat properly. Upper oven element works on broil but does not cycle during baking, causing too low temp.
Obviously it is not the element. I figured the cause was the clock/timer, so I bought & installed one, but the problem persisted. I am taking it back but am stuck with a 30% restock fee, probably over $45. :-((
I looked at the schematics and tried to figure out what else might cause it.
What do you mean by, "properly"?
Is it heating or not at all?
Is it not hot enough, or too hot?
Upper element is for broil. It may come on briefly during bake, but usually at half power. It doesn't glow red.
Does the bottom element glow red? If not, inspect lower element, which is the bake element, for pits and rough spots. These may be signs of failure.
UNPLUG STOVE!! Remove bake element and check for continuity. If it shows open, replace. You can probably take to parts store and they can test it for you.
