What would cause the broiler element to override the baking element? My oven has lost its mind. It doesn't matter what setting I use, The broil element takes over and burns everything. Please help.


Not 100% sure but my guess. Most electric ovens usually bake with both elements on. The bake element(bottom) is usually on at full power with 240 volts to it. The broil element(top) is usually on at 1/2 power 120 volts to help even out the temperature. My guess is your bottom element is not coming on at all either because it is burned out or something in the control system. So what is happening is the oven is trying to heat to the set temp with only the top element keeping it on much longer than it normally should be on and burning everything. Now if you set the oven for bake and the top is on red hot, you have a control system problem something like a bad selector switch or main control board if the oven has a electronic control.

Temperature when using frigidare oven, keeps getting hotter and does not cool down


Good Afternoon Andrea,

I see that you're having issues with your Frigidaire oven, and the heating element being red hot the entire time you were cooking no matter how much you turned the temperature down.

I suggest giving your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for at least 2-3 minutes. When power is restored to your oven, you will need to set the clock by entering in the time and pressing start. Preheat the oven, to whatever desired temperature, and if it is still running hotter than it should be, I suggest you contact your local authorized technician. I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Bosch oven temp control


If the temp control works for all other settings, it is working for hot air grilling as it using the same stat....when hot air grilling function is used the grill comes on and when it reaches temp the element switches off and the fan switches on. Once this has happened the element and fan will alternate during the cooking period. The fan and element DO NOT operate at the same time.

I have an aeg d2100-4-m oven. main lower oven not getting hot. Have replaced element, to no avail.Fan and light in oven both come on, but have noticed that the temperature dial light is not illuminating....


Hi .
Sounds like the oven thermostat is faulty.,
This gives a supply to the element .
The temp indicator should be lit, if it is not, then I would suggest repl;acing the oven thermostat.

My oven is burning my baked goods, but shows the right temp with a thermometer. Do I have to turn the dial to broil and then back to the desired temp? Even if the rack is in the middle, everything burns....


If it is convection bake you have to turn the temp down (25 degrees or so) that is listed in the recipe.

The broil setting is not used to bake because it operates differently from the bake setting. So, don't go to the broil setting at all.
The element for bake is under the floor of the oven. You have not indicated whether it is gas or electric, but both of these can have issues with the burner or element.

If you are baking on the correct setting and the oven is heating from the bottom, not the top, this can be caused by hot spots that are created by elements/burners.

to check, look under the floor of the oven. Turn the bake heat up to high and see if the flame is uneven. For an electric oven, the color of the element should be evenly red, no brown spots.

If you are using an oven thermometer, move the thermometer to the spot in the oven that seems to be burning things the most.

My GE oven heating element heats red hot no matter what temp I put the oven on


Something is probobly wrong with the thermostat, it gets hot to warm up, but should lessen as it reaches your desired temp. If the thermostat is bad it will just keep going.

HI, MY ELECTROLUX SINGLE FAN OVEN EBO5665 DOES NOT HEAT UP TO ANY TEMP. THE OVEN IS ON, FAN ON,AND THE TIMER DIALS ARE SET. DOESNT HEAT UP. IT TRIPPED THE ELECTRIC SWITCH OFF AT THE TIME. ANY SUGGESTIONS!...


You probably have a bad ( or open ) heating element.. With the power removed.. look at the heating element and make sure it is connected properly and if after you check that it looks ok.. plug it in and try again.. if it fails to get hot..its probably bad.. Not sure what you mean when you say ' IT TRIPPED THE ELECTRIC SWITCH OFF AT THE TIME' but if it tripped the switch or circuit breaker .. your heating element may be shorting out to ground.. and would need to be replaced anyway... Hope that helps.
