You need to access through the back to get to the connection on the back of the element. Be sure to unplug the machine!

Lower oven not heating


  1. Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Zanussi manual.
  2. If you're Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
  3. When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.

Model #88370 - How to replace oven bake element- The wires are too short-Is there a rear panel to enter from the back?


The following link explains how to replace an oven element on and electric range:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r469407-replacing_bake_or_broil_element_in

To answer your intial question, yes, you should should remove the back panel of the range to perform this repair. Although the elements are inserted from the oven cavity, you still need to remove the rear panel to access the electrical connections. Make sure you unplug the range before servicing.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: There should also be a wiring diagram along the back of the oven, or inside the operator console that you can use for assistance. The wire color codes should be listed.

Oven blows main switch


There is a short circuit between the lower oven control and the lower element.
Disconnect the lower element. Put electrical tape on the loose terminals and turn the lower oven on.
If it does not blow, replace the lower element with a new element.
If it does blow, Check the wiring to the lower element for continuity to the frame of the range.
If you get continuity replace the damaged wire..
Finally, check the control knob switch for continuity to ground on the frame of the oven.

Replaced heating element in oven but still remains on.


When the bake element shorted out, did the element make a big bang and perhaps even short against the metal bottom of your oven? I am suspecting the relay on your electronic oven control shorted and fused together. With this in mind, unplug the oven and gain access to the electronic control. Now trace the wire going from the electronic control to your lower bake element. Once you have figured which one it is, remove it from the electronic control. Tape it off with black electrical tape and plug the oven back in. At this pint, the element should not come on. Dis it come on or is it off. If off, replacing the electronic contro is the next step or if handly enough, you can replace the relay on the control...Let me know if I can help further.....

GE J BP27G R1AD Oven Not Heating Fully


Hi Jeff. You should have a wiring diagram with the range. Check for an envelope on the back of the range, inside the back splash, or taped to the inside side wall of the range if you remove the lower drawer. That all being said, first check to see if the start or stop time knobs on the timer have been pushed in (and possibly turned). If the clock runs, it will clear this out within 12 hours, but on these old ranges often times the clock no longer runs. Make sure these knobs are turned until they have "popped" out or you won't get the necessary voltage where you need it. Secondly, when a bake element burns out, it can cause damage to the electrical contacts in the oven selector switch (part number WB22X5122 ) which can be tested with an ohm meter if you can find the electrical diagram. Also, the oven thermostat (part number WB21X5320 ) can be damaged in the same way. Unfortunately, these parts for these old units are not very cheap.
The little bit of heat you are getting in your oven now is most likely only from the 120 volts going to the broiler element when in Bake. During Bake, your bake element should get 240 volts (until thermostat is satisfied). Setting to Broil should give 240 to the broil element.

From where do I access the lower oven element on a Amana ACF4215A


There should be two screws at the rear of the bottom panel inside the oven. Remove those and lift out that panel. The element is under there. If there is not enough wire to pull thru you may have to disconnect and reconnect the wires to the element from the back of the oven by removing the back panel. Hope this helps.
