    I have had my range for about 5 years, ceran top ( smooth) discolored, with the friction of pots, I use stainless steel cook wear. and Corell wear on it. it started shortly after I had it and the blake marks are in the center of the cook surfaces and keep wearing. I had repair out once and they said it was cosmetic. I don't believe that and was given the runaround ..plus on the back panel controls the right front control with the double burner, seems to still be touchy and the sensor for the rings ( whether on Lg or Small ring seems to click off ( can hear t) and the 6 qt pan takes for ever to heat and actually bil the water...A Can I get a new top delivered and B is it the knob or the sensor on the double element that is not working well.. MAA

Bottom oven on Magtag Gemini burning bottoms of everything


when you set oven on bake the broil element comes on too,set the bottom oven on broil and see if the element gets hot,if not,unplug the machine or kill the power going to it,remove the element and check it with a meter to see if the element is bad,if so change out broil element if element is good you could have a broken wire or bad clock assy.there's a computer board with the clock that everything runs through,hopefully you have a bad element,if the element is coming on next thing to check is the sensor,this tells the computer how hot it is so it will turn the elements on and off,if you look behind the top panel in the back i think the paperwork is in a plastic pouch,it will tell you how to read out the sensor,i think it's 1080 ohms,or you can read out the sensor on the top oven and then check the bottom sensor and hopefully it will be a bad broil element or sensor and not the clock assy. hope this helps.

The bottom oven is heating up very slow.


If you are having problems with your electric oven heating up too slowly, not being able to maintain temperature set point, or wild variations in temperature, then you probably have a bad baking element in your oven.

The bake element is the bottom element in your oven. The life span of these elements can vary depending on the usage of your oven and the quality of the element. Anything electric has an unpredictable lifespan. Elements made on the same assembly line can vary greatly in how long they last. But when the element burns out it will need to be replaced to have your oven work properly.

The thing the fools many people is that many ovens will use the broil element to preheat the oven and then switch to using the baking element only. When this happens the oven will no longer heat and will cool down. The unit may sense this and activate the broil element again which will cause wild swings in temperature and also can cause food to burn on the top self or not bake properly.

If you can see the elements, watch them and see if they both get red hot when initially warming the oven. If only the top, broil element gets hot then you have a burned out element or a bad contacts where the element plugs into. Usually lifting the element and pulling out on it will release the element. If the contacts are discolored or pitted then they could be causing your problems. By using an ohm meter you can check the resistance of the element. If you get no continuity through the element it is no good.Bad elements will often have blisters, bubbles, or even burn in two.

If the element contacts are bad, make sure the you replace both the element and the receptacle that the element plugs into. Replacing only the element will only temporarily solve your problem.

most likely the element needs replacing, check for arcing holes,melted spots. check fuses, normaly under cover at top of stove. element is easy to replace(a few screws), unplug stove when doing so.

no only the bottom the bake supposed to come on, the top one is for broiling when you set the knob or push for broiling.it will burn the top of everything you put in there.
