    Took your advice and changed element. No change. Further testing showed it was the clock & control electronics. This priced out to $ 339.00 plus taxes & installation. Not worth it. Have to purchase a new stove. Excuse the delay in replying. Thanks for your help.

Unplug the machine. Remove the door and racks unscrew the element being careful not to loose the wires or you might have to get the stove out from the wall. Tip: pull the bottom drawer out and you can usually unplug the power without disturbing the stove.

Please check that model number again. The one you posted comes up as a refrigerator. Look inside the oven door or the lower drawer.

Hotpoint oven won't heat above 250 degrees broiler works fine as well as the stove top

either its the oven sensor rod located at the top of the ovens cavity,or your bake element could be getting a hot spot which is when it gets a discolored spot in the element and can no longer pass sufficient current to heat the oven past 250 degrees

Our oven was working fine yesterday evening. Now there is no heat coming through. The grill works, as does the light and the fan. The oven has not been banged or damaged, the door seems to be closing...

Without going into the issue too deeply it sound like you have one of two possible problems.
The first would be a visual inspection, not worked on this type so I will generlise the solution, check element or elements on oven, fan assisted usually have the element in front of the fan, you may have to remove the fan to remove the heating element, checking power, a multimeter would be require and extreme caution as mains would have to be restored to the appliance while panels rear were removed.
Check on meter A/C above 250 volts range if not auto ranging meter, two terminals on heating element should read 230 volt A/C, if no voltage, the problem can be in several areas, check this first. Then send me the details, if mains voltage is detected then it is safe to presume the element is faulty.
AH also before the above look at the element if you have a Black Grey spot or blow out just replace the element. Elements are quite easy to obtain for most ovens a local electrical supplier or
you will need the model and serial number of the appliance.
Hope this is helpful

The oven is taking forever to heat to 250...The broil works and the stove works...The oven will not heat above 250 on regular bake mode

Sounds like the bottom element is not working, Check it. If it is, there is a high limit, that shuts the oven off it it overheats. When they go bad, they shut down at lower temps. Sounds like that might be your problem

The oven does'nt seem to be able to heat up above 150, the fan is working, the bottem half of the oven does'nt seem to heating up. Is this fixable or do i need a new oven?


If the part that is not heating is only the bottom element, and the top element is heating regularly, then you may need to replace the lower element.
Before replacement the element can be tested removing it from the cavity and reading Ohms at the element terminals, with a multimeter set at Rx1. Disconnect power before removing the element.

If both baking and broiling element do not heath above a certain temperature instead, then the part to be replaced is the temperature probe, still located inside the oven cavity.

My oven still doesnt work after replacing heating element

it could either be a hot spot in the element where it can no longer pass all the current needed for proper operation in heating(look for a discolored spot on it,it may be whitish and dimpled from heat) or secondly,it could be the oven thermocouple located on the inside top of the oven cavity

I have a frigidaire oven model # PLEB30S8CCB won't get above 290

The coils should glow red when working. If the lower (bake) element does not glow it may be burnt out. Some ovens cycle the bake and broil elements during preheat and that mey be why you are getting some heat.

Upper oven will not heat above 250 , lower oven works fine

If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...
