Question about Ovens
My oven will not heat anymore. 4 yrs old. Won't work on bake or broil. My control panel has power, I've reset the breaker, I checked the heating elements and they are fine. I though maybe it was a swtich because when I set my oven on bake and there is no clicking sounds. usually there is! Do you have any suggestions of what could be the problem or where i could find the switch , is it behind the control panel... how do i test the switch?
Possible solution for above...this would apply to any electric oven.
First of all there are two elements.. one for baking (lower) and one for broiling. (upper) . I assume the lower is not working but is the upper.
Unplug the oven. Then remove the element and have a look at and the connections.
I found that on an lolder ovens where I thought the element had burned out that the electrical connections- ( screwed or spade connection) was so badly corroded that electrical contact was poor. I might add that this was also a fire hazzard.

Check the power and make sure it's getting 220. Make sure the plug didn't come loose from the wall first. I have seen this happen before, where one of the legs on the plug wasn't plugged in completely. If the oven is only getting 110v, it will work otherwise, but you will get no heat. Check it and let me know if you need further help.
