Question about Kitchen Ranges
Our Whirlpool RGE 6700 range has been given us problems with baking. For example, pumpkin pies were done on top but the bottom crust was doughy. The Thanksgiving turkey was done on top (legs essentially came right off with slight tug + pop up timer was up), yet the backbone meat and thigh joints were not done... I put in an oven thermometer and temps are significantly higher on the top rack than on the bottom rack. It appears that the bottom heating element is failing. Can I just replace this lower element or should I have a serviceman come out and check for other possible issues. Note, the bottom element was replaced previously (about 7 years ago).
On bake setting only your bake element is on broil element comes on for preheat only naturally the top part of your oven is hotter heat rises take the temp in the center of oven with a good thermometer
those cheap ones are a guide only dont swear by them

Hi - Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately two minutes and turn the range back on. Select a normal bake cycle and if issue continues then the unit may possibly have either a faulty element, bad communication error with the main control board, oven sensor, or mechanical thermostat. I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. They also usually warranty their labor just in case something else may turn out to be the root cause of your initial problem and it does work out better to your advantage.
