Question about Kitchen Ranges
If the bottom element is getting too hot, then either control or the temperature probe is faulty
The temperature probe is located inside the oven cavity. It must be tested removing it from the cavity and reading Ohms with a multimeter set at Rx1.
At room temperature of about 60 - 80 °F (15 -27 °C), the temperature probe must return 1.1KOhms.
Testing the probe at different temperatures is more complex, as you will need a precision oven thermometer, and there are safety concerns involved.
Enter model number on website below, or give us model mumber to locate the probe. The probe is not an expensive part.
If the probe is tested OK, sometimes the control board can be faulty.
If the problem is happening only on lower element, also ensure that the element is not "plugged" because of a contact, in that case the element will stay on all the time.
