The preheat light flashes on my he range and oven does not heat. I have had the sensor checked and its working. What else could it be?


Most likely the heating element is bad. Disconnect the oven from power. You can open the bottom of your oven to expose the heating element and see if there are any signs of burns or melting. If you can, remove the heating element and use a volt/ohm meter to check "continuity" across the element ... it should be a dead short. While performing this inspection, confirm that the wires and connectors leading to the heating element are intact and connected.

OVEN DOESNT WORK


I am not familiar with this unit but It could probably be one of two things. The broiler is the top element, since it gets hot you have enough energy. The bottom element could have failed. Carefully check the voltage on the two terminals on the heating element. There should be ~240 +- 20% volts. If you have that the element needs to be replaced. If not then it could be a bad control, or wireing.

Bottom element not working


Well, to ensure the element is bad, you can take an ohm meter to the contacts of it and measure the resistance. It should be around 20 ohms. If it is much greater or infinite, the element is bad. To get to the contacts you will need to unplug the oven, pull it away from the wall and remove the rear panel. Then disconnect the element wiring and touch the probes from the meter to the contacts on the element. You can order a new element locally or from repairclinic.com. Let me know what you find.

JBP82 My oven does not heat up or stops at 350. I don't see the bottom element heating up.


CHECK THE ELEMENT MANNY TIMES WHEN IT BURNS OUT YOU CAN SEE A BUMP OR BURN MARK ON THE ELEMENT. OR REMOVE POWER TO STOVE THEN REMOVE THE SCREWS THAT HOLD THE ELEMENT IN PULL IT SLOWLY AWAY FROM THE BACK WALL AND DISCONECT THE WIRES. YOU CAN USE A OHM METER TO CHECK IT IF ITS OPEN ITS BAD.

Opening the cook top in a Whirlpool electric range


The cooktop on this model range will lift up, exposing the surface burners and wiring harness. The screws are located along the bottom of the frotn edge of the cooktop. You will need to open the oven door to see them. Just follow these steps:

Before you begin:

1. UNPLUG the range before servicing. There are dangerous voltages still present even with burners turned off.

2. There are a few screws located under the front edge of the cook top. You will need to open the oven door to see them. Remove these screws and the top should lift up. If the range is not equipped with any kind of hinge supports, the top will have to be propped up.

On some ranges, there is a disconnect plug for the surface element wiring harness. If you have this feature, Follow these steps:

a. Unplug the cook top and leave the elements in place.

b. Place the whole cook top assembly face-down on a soft surface (like some old towels, or a blanket).

c. Remove the bad surface element by removing only the bracket pair that the affected element is attached to. Leave the rest of the elements wired together. Write down the wire color codes so you can be sure the new element is installed correctly. HINT: A digital camera can save you some time.

d. When installing the new surface element, make sure you use the same alignment marks (the numbered positions around the perimeter) as the old element. Avoid touching the burner surface and handle with care. Try to handle from the underside of the element only. Oil from your hands can cause damage to the element and/or premature failure. The elements are fragile.

If the wiring harness does NOT unplug, prop the cook top in place and install the surface element from underneath. A helpful hint: Use some duct tape to hold the assembly until you have screwed it back into place. Don't forget to remove the duct tape when completed.

If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. You can reference searspartdirect.com for some helpful exploded view diagrams of you range for assistance if you need it. I hope you find this information helpful.

Bottom baking element remains on


From a consumer repair stand-point; I would inspect, test for continuity and or replace your oven bake heating element.

How to Replace an Oven Bake Heat Element: While ensuring power off when servicing; Remove (2) mounting screws and slowly back-out the element about 3" or so. Then, disconnect and remove wires located on each side of heat element; re-install new element.

Should problems still exist, contact me.
