SOURCE: Oven will not bake or broil

bann...why did you replace the element? It is possible that the relay or the control circuit were the problems and still are. The hi limit switch is a temperature 'box' which is designed to open the circuit in case of overheating. Rarely a problem. First, these units are 3 wire units. That means 220 volts ... two breakers. They may be part of a linked unit or separate. Turn them BOTH off and then on. Do all of your burners heat properly on high? If you have a voltage tester, you can test to see if the voltage is there. Unplug the unit. The vertical slot is neutral. Each of the other slots with the neutral should light the tester. If not, your problem is outside the stove.

SOURCE: oven does not get hot enough to bake

Probably a failure to get 240 volts to those elements.
If burners work, then it's probably an oven CONTROL(S)l failure. Test them if you know how. Very difficult to find parts for a stove that old.

Preheats very slowly. Also, steam cleaning option seems to not be effective due to low heat. Is there more than one lower oven heating element?

For the oven their is 2 elements 1 for bake and 1 for broil,are each glowing red hot on the respictive settings of bake and broil? their is no trird hidden element. Plus i know manufactures come out with new features all the time,i attend factory trainging sessions a couple times a year but i am confused as to what the "STEAM CLEAN OPTION" IS??
THE SELF CLEAN cycle utilizes both elements to clean the oven adding steam is a new one on me

The oven is taking forever to heat to 250...The broil works and the stove works...The oven will not heat above 250 on regular bake mode

Sounds like the bottom element is not working, Check it. If it is, there is a high limit, that shuts the oven off it it overheats. When they go bad, they shut down at lower temps. Sounds like that might be your problem

What is the complete model # from the sticker on the range? I will need that so I can look into this for you. I will say that I have seen, in several cases, where the oven control gets a surge and fries after an element has broken.

Oven will not heat past 220 degrees

Check your bake element, I had the exact same problem and found the bake element had burned in half. The broil element comes on during preheat and kicks off at around 220 degrees.
