SOURCE: Top element in oven not working

This "top element" is your broil element. It will only get red when broil is selected.

SOURCE: No power to upper oven 'bake' heating element.

Sounds like you have it figured, need to spend some moola..........

You can ohm out the sensor to the oven should be about 1100 ohms at room temperature.((the sensor is the little rod with two wires attached to it sticking in the oven, as temps change resistance changes which is read by the board) The upper and lower oven sensors are probably the same,you could just swap them to test, but probably not necessary,might also be confusing if you do not do a lot of testing on a regular basis. Remember to unplug unit for safety.

The bake element if it was not bad should be about 20 ohms, bad would read open........

Frigidare gas oven wil not get up to tempature

Hello - Does it reach the temperature and then back down, or does it take too long to get to your set temperature? Either you have a faulty element or a bad communication error with the main control board.

Oven won't heat accurately

Brad, your right on track. But I'd look toward the sensor first (The computer only does what the sensor tells it to do). I'll need the model number to find part numbers to help you further. The model number is on a sticker located on the oven body behind the lower drawer. It'll start with 3 digits then a decimal point the more digits (xxx.xxxxxxxx).

Oven will not reach desired temperature and slight gas smell

Just had same problem it was nice it waited until christmas dinner, all i did to resolve the problem was switch the upper broiler igniter with the lower one for the oven. I tuned on the oven & it fired right up i never use the broiler on my oven so itll buy me some time. So if you can get the broiler to light try that but i did have the same low temp. & the smell of gas. Good Luck

Temp of oven did not go over 350 when it was set at 380,,,was cooking fried chicken spectra xl44

Probably the RTD is going bad. That is a resistive temperature device. It changes resistance over temp and feeds a voltage back to the oven controller telling it that the oven set temp has been reached. If you are not reaching your temperature then I would suspect the RTD.

Oven not heating KitchenAid KERC506HWH3

It could be the sensor. Remove the sensor and check for 1 to 1.1K ohms. at room temp. If that's not the problem it may be the oven solenoid on the burner. You can also have a problem with the door lock making when it shouldn't check that also.

GE Spectra XL Oven does not maintain oven temperature

I have the exact problem. We had the ignitor replaced 2 already and it works for 18 months and stops. Occasionally, it the oven won't even start to heat. I am ready to throw it out.

GE oven

Yup...I believe this may have been an issue with some GE models. I seem to remember a problem where some models had problems staying lit after preheating. The fix was replacing the oven thermostat. Now...the normal cycle for an oven lighting is just what you described. The glow igniter will glow first, followed by the gas valve opening, followed by ignition. Once the oven reaches optimum temperature it is normal for the gas to shut off and come back on to maintain oven temperature. However, if this is going on in a frequent fashion with the oven never getting warm, your guess is probably a correct one. Good luck to you.
