    The bottom element rests on top of a galvanized plate which has its back edge turned up to form a "lip". There is a notch in the lip just wide enough for the "neck" of the element to fit through. The clearance is much too small for the whole element to slide out. To get the old one out the repairman had to bend the lip down with pliers. I can't believe this is the way Verona designed it, but they refuse to send us a cut-sheet. Is there a way to release the galvanized plate so it will slide out and allow clearance for the element with out bending it?



    Thanks

    Not a problem! Have seen this before. Many of the microwave ovens are the same way now as well. I don't care for it.

    There are tabs around the unit that will have to be bent down to remove it if it's to big to just pull out by itself. You will have to bend out the tabs around the surrounding to remove the panels and element

    Bend down any tabs that are visible if the element itself is not to big to remove. Try just unscrewing it first, if it's too big, bend back all surrounding tabs.

An electric oven is a baking chamber. It's either part of an electric range or a standalone appliance without the cooktop. It is a 240/120-volt circuit—240 volts for the heating elements and 120 volts for the accessories. A thermostat senses and regulates oven temperature. Time and temperatures are regulated by an electric timer motor or by a digital controller.electric ovens have two heating elements, the main one on the bottom of the chamber and another one on the top, typically used for broiling.
Test and replace an oven element:

  1. Unplug the oven or turn off power at the electrical service panel.
  2. Remove the screws or nuts that fasten the element to the back of the oven.
  3. Unscrew any support brackets and pull the element forward to expose the wiring.
  4. Remove the wires from the element terminals, being careful not to bend the terminals or let the wires fall back through the opening.
  5. Carefully remove the element from the oven.
  6. Inspect the wire terminals for burns or damage and replace if needed.
  7. Set a multimeter to RX1 (resistance times 1) and touch probes to each of the terminals. The meter should show continuity. If it doesn't, the element should be replaced.
  8. Use the same RX1 range to test for continuity to ground with one probe on a terminal and the other on the element. If the needle moves, there is a grounding problem and the element should be replaced.
  9. If you replace the element, make sure it is of the same size, shape, and resistance as recommended by the manufacturer. Reinstall in reverse order.
This advice is on how to replace a bad element on kitchen ranges that utilize ELECTRIC heating elements for baking and broiling.
1.UNPLUG the range and remove the rear panel.Dangerous voltages are still present with the range turned off.The rear panel is in close proximity to the input power terminal block & shock hazard and/or equipment hazard can exist.Remove the series of screws around the perimeter of the panel.
2.Locate and disconnect the terminal lead wires from the element.Color coding may differ between manufacturers, so make sure you mark or label the wires as you remove them.If replacing both elements, do so one at a time to avoid confusion.
3.Open the oven door and remove (if possible). Refer to your owner’s manual to see if there are instructions on how to remove the oven door. Some have spring-loaded locking hinges, while others just lift out. If you cannot remove the oven door, use care not to lean on the door or put too much weight on it. This can cause damage to the door hinges or cause the hinge springs to come loose.
4.Remove the oven racks, and remove the oven pan (if required – some elements are fully exposed, some have pan covers). There are usually two screws either in the back or front of the oven holding the pan in place.
5.The element will be mounted directly to the back of the oven wall, and/or to the bottom/top of the oven wall.Remove the mounting screws and remove old element from oven.
6.Install new element by carefully feeding the terminal leads through the oven wall first. Reinsert all mounting screws.
7.From the back of the range, reconnect the terminal wires.
8.Plug range in, turn oven/boiler on, and perform a visual test of the heating element to ensure it is working properly.Turn oven/broiler off and allow sufficient time to cool. If the oven has only been on for a minute or so, the cool down period will be brief.NOTE: Stand clear of any exposed wiring with rear panel removed.
9.UNPLUG range once again and re-install rear panel ensuring the terminal wires are NOT touching the panel.
10.Reinstall the oven pan and racks. Reinstall door if necessary.
NOTES:Prices vary between models and manufacturers, but most elements are in the $20-$40 range.There is a difference between the BROIL and BAKE elements in that they are usually different wattage ratings and are shaped differently.They should not be considered interchangeable.

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.

Should we repair heat element, or buy a new oven?


It sounds like your element is electric. When food drips on that element it can cause a heat spot on the insulation around the electric element and eventually burns through. You can easily replace that element for about $50 - $60. It requires about three hand tools and 15 minutes to remove old one and install a new one. You should be in business for another 14 years if you clean any drippings on the element itself.

All of a sudden my Whirlpool dishwasher don't want to dry the dishes, what can I do about it?


If it is not the switch on the front of the control panel, then it will be the Heating element in the bottom of the tank. These, like oven elements, can burn out like a light bulb. With the machine dry inside and the dishes and lower rack removed, do a close examination this part. It is generally black in color and is goes around the pump close to the outside of the tank. If there is a small hole or a bubble in it with a sort of white powder around it, it has burned out. If you are inclined in this direction, you can replace it yourself. Make TOTALLY SURE THERE IS NO ELECTRICAL POWER BEING SUPPLIED TO THE MACHINE. Remove the kick plate panel to the front. Usually 1/4 inch hex head bolts and #2 phillips head screw drivers. The element base pieces extend through the bottom of the tanks with washers.
Unplug each of the two electrical connectors from the old element and remove the nuts holding it into the tank. Reverse procedure installing the new element. Turn it on and test for leaks. If OK re-install the kick plate panel. Good luck,
Best Regards,
Mark

Built in oven won't get hot


hello there
Usually, when an oven won't heat up or bake, 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. Now if the oven It bakes poorly Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:" When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out. You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results. If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component. When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem
Hope thisis very helpful for you

Thermador SC301T heating elements not working (top and bottom). elements look fine, oven turns on but elements stay cold.... any help would be appreciated. thanks, Tony


Its the thermal safety switch. When it trips - it cuts any power from reaching BOTH elements. Open the oven door - at the top wehere the oven latch is - remove the long black panel. In the middle - on the right is a small cylindrical switch...push down on the top - in the very center...it will rest the switch (like a circuit breaker) and then reassemble. Just did it on mine (2nd time) and it fired right up. Good luck

Bottom heating element in oven is not heating up.


If the element only works partially or not getting red hot at the "Hi" setting, the problem might be with a burned out receptacle that the element plugs into. If this is the case, replace both the element and the receptacle.

You can usually tell when the element itself burns out. It might have small holes or bubbles on the coil. Replace the element, if found defective.

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.

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.
