Electric range heating elements don't work at all for "bake" function, but "broil" function works (top element) & stovetop works.

The bake (bottom) element has probably burnt out. It's very easy and inexpensive to change them.

First order a new one. Get the range model number and search Google for the element part number. You will get a number of appliance parts suppliers. Check a couple of them for prices and record the part number. (A few suppliers use private part numbers. Most use the manufacturer's part number which will be the one which appears most frequently.)

You could then order from the least expensive supplier, but don't do so. Now search Amazon and eBay for that part number. You will find the part for less than half the price. Order one.

When it arrives, do this:
  1. Unplug the range or make SURE it is turned off.
  2. Remove the old element. It will be held in place with a single Phillips head screw or a hex-head screw. Use the right sized screwdriver or nut driver or socket-wrench as appropriate. The screw will be tight after years of baking. After removing the screw, pull and wiggle the element until it comes unplugged.
  3. Push the new element into the socket and secure it with the screw.
Turn on the oven and let it heat for 5-10 minutes before baking to burn off the bad-smelling coating on the new element.

Appliance Repair Meridian - Oven Bake Element Replacement

Oven Bake elements are relatively easy to replace but there are extra precautions that need to be taken. Do not touch, reposition, or remove element without unplugging the appliance. On some ranges there is always L2-120V that is live - not switched in but there constantly. If you happen to touch the element, if it's broken, you can become enlightened very quickly.

Anyway, on with the replacment. Remove two screws from the inside back wall to release back element. Carefully and patiently, work the back element towards you to expose the wire terminals. Disconnect wire terminals and install in reverse order.

Oven heats slowly, bake element has been replaced

Yes, it is very possible that when the bake element burned out, it may have shorted out to the case of the oven, and burned up the relay on the control board. If you have a voltmeter (and feel comfortable in doing this), remove the back of the oven, and measure the voltage across the bake elements when you set the oven to some bake temperature. Be careful, you are dealing with 240 volts AC here! IF you don't have any voltage anywhere near 240 V while on bake, then you probably have a bad electronic oven control. If you have just 120 volts, then check your voltage at your power cord or (better) at the junction box at the back of the range. You should have 120 volts from the center (white or green) wire to either the red or black wire; and 240 volts from the red to the black wire. Now IF you have 240 volts across the terminals of the bake element, then you may have gotten the wrong bake element (wrong wattage - lower watts than the original). Maybe you ordered the wrong one, or maybe they put the wrong one in the box.

My whirlpool electric stove not turning on

Make sure it is plugged in and you have power to your house.If everything is dead check your fusebox for blown fuses if you have circuit breakers reset the breaker for the stove by turning it off then back on. If the burners on the top work,but the oven won't you probably have a burned out bake element .To change this turn off power to the stove and unplug remove 2 or 3 screws holding the bake element and remove the wires to the element by loosing the screws on the terminals note sometimes bake elements plug in in this case just unplug. Reverse process to install. Reapply power and test.

All bake elements are not the same. The part # for your bake element is #9758519. Hopefully you can find an appliance parts store in your area. Thay are fairly ease to replace. With the oven UNPLUGGED, Remove the two screws holding the element in and there should only be two wires connected to the element.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

The baking element isn't working.

You can replace the element. The element should just plug in to the oven. You might have to remove a few bolts that hold the element in place. Get the model number of your range and call your local appliance stores, or order it online. Unplug the old element and plug in the new element.

Whirlpool Oven Element

It sounds like you have a bake element that needs to to be replaced. The following link explains how to access and replace one:

It is common for the bake element to wear out more frequently than the broil element due to the frequency of use. These elements are not interchangeable because of different wattage ratings. You should also check the wiring connections between the element and the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. The EOC controls all the oven features. There is a separate relay on the board for each oven feature. It is possible for the bake relay to go bad, or the interconnecting wiring to the element, so you will need to check these items if your existing element checks good.

CAUTION: Make sure you follow all safety precautions and DO NOT attempt to service your range while it is still plugged in. High voltage potentials are still present in the back of the range even when the oven is not on. Always UNPLUG before taking any resistance readings.

Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Oven will not heat past 300 degrees (on bake command)

Remove the bottom plate on the stove which is likely help in place by a couple of bolts at the back. Remove the plate & inspect the bake element underneath. It is probably melted or broken in some area. It it does need replacing unplug the stove from the wall & remove one of the back panels at the back of the stove which access the wiring at this height on the stove. Disconnect the element.
Installation of new element is the same but in reverse.
Good luck!
