You will need the model number of the machine, Once you have the model number, you can call a parts store to get the part you need.

When you have the part. Very important! First Turn off the power to the machine at the breaker box or sometimes called fuse box.
There are usualy 2 screws holding the bake element in, Remove them and pull the element out untill you see the end of the element and wires attached to them. NOTE : Go slow. You will see the wires at the end of the element. Just take a look at the new one to see what it will look like. Next, remove the wires from the old bake element, they are either screwed on or cliped on with a spade terminal. Take the old bake element and new element and make sure they match. now put the wires on the new bake element and reinstall. Then you can turn the power back on and test.

Ignis AXL 905/IX oven and prob is food is cooking on top but not below. Two elements at top. Inner on when in oven mode, outer on in grill . Bottom of oven not warming evenly and burning top of food


Your bottom element is not working and that is why foods placed on top heat up but the undersides are not affected as much.

You need even heat on both sides of the food. Get a new element and replace.

Whirlpool gold double oven model #gbd307pdb. upper oven lower heating element burned out. replace lower element. it does not get hot. upper element heats up. control board works. is this the thermos


You will have to see if there is power to the element. It is possible that the relay contacts burned when the element burned out. There is a fusable link but this would shut down both the top and bottom elements. If the relay is burned out the control board will need replacing or rebuilding.

My Crosley oven has a new element and timer and still will not heat up


It sounds like you need to replace the burner receptacle, in either the broiler or the bottom oven burner( heating element) or both. When it exploded it burned the contacts in the heating element.

Switched bottom oven on, then noticed it had tripped fuse for cooker in main fuse box. Swithed it back on and it wouldn't heat up. The fan and light were ok! Top ove? grill works ok still.


sounds like you have a heating element burned out. Look real close at the heating elements and you may see a hole burned in the metal tube. This is a sure sign of a bad element. Some elements are easy to unplug. Others a real pain. Always unplug and or turnoff breaker prior to unscrewing anything. If you fine the bad element just unplug and other element may work OK. Best to get your model number and search net for new element.

BOUGHT A HOME IN UNION NJ WITH THE GE DOUBLE WALL OVEN TOP PART DOES NOT WORK BOTTOM PART BURNS THE FOOD NEED REPAIR PLS CALL ME AT 908-391-8942


The heating element in top unit may be loose or burned out. Push the element toward the back and see if it engages. If it is already engaged, you'll need to replace it. It is simple to remove it.Just give a firm tug and it should come right out. To replace with a new element, simply push it in firmly.
With the bottom unit, are controls set for bake? If they are set for "broil" you are using direct heat and it will cook foods more quickly.Also, is bottom unit a convection oven? If so, foods will cook in 1/4 to 1/2 the time for a conventional oven, so you'll have to adjust your temperature down about 25-50 degrees and shorten your cooking time.

The bottom heating element won't heat up


If the new element is good then the next thing to check is the selector knob (COOK/BROIL) and the thermostat for the oven.

To check the thermostat, turn the selector to BROIL and turn the thermostat up until the top element begins to heat. Let it heat up a little then turn the thermostat down until it clicks off. If this works then your thermostat is working.

The problem then must be your selector control. Remove and replace (turn power off at circuit breaker box first!).

Of course, if the thermostat won't turn on the upper element either then it must be the thermostat.

There is a possibility also that a loose/broken/burned wire is causing the problem. You should check for this when you open up the control panel (after turning off the circuit breaker!).

Good luck!

Bottom oven doesn't heat after running self-clean cycle


Usually, when an oven won't heat, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

The oven stopped working and heating up. The top range part works.


I suspect a heating element in the oven has burned out. Some ovens have 2 heating elements, one on the bottom for baking and one on the top for broiling. If this is the case, you can try setting the oven on broil and see if the top element gets hot. Usually the bottom element fails first because food gets dripped on it. In most cases you can unplug the old heating element by just pulling on it and plug the new one just as easily. You can check the resistance of the heating element with an ohm meter. If it's burned out the resistance will be very high, probably greater than a mega ohm. In some cases you will need to take the back off the oven to replace the heating element. Just make sure the oven is unplugged and cool when you start working on it.
