    Broil works but the bake doesn't. I checked the wiring in the back and all seem fine. Didn't see any burning or disconnects. How frustrating.

CHECK FOR 240VOLTS AT THE TERMINALS OF THE BAKE ELEMENT. GAIN ACCESS BY REMOVING THE BACK PANEL OF THE RANGE. SOMETIMES THE TERMINAL WILL BURN OFF OF THE WIRE GOING TO THE ELEMENT. THE WIRE WILL JUST BE HANGING THERE. BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE OVEN BEFORE REMOVING BACK PANEL. IF THE WIRE IS BURNT, REPLACE THE TERMINAL AND REATTACH TO THE ELEMENTS TERMINAL. IF THE TERMINAL IS DAMAGED, REPLACE BAKE ELEMENT.
IF THERE IS NO VOLTAGE TO THE ELEMENT, REPLACE CONTROL.

Bake and broiler element come on when bake is selected. Why?


Understand that I am not a professional, so this answer is subject to revision by someone who is more knowledgeable.

Where I live now I'm on Natural Gas, but in the past I've had electric stove/ovens. Based on my best recall the situation you describe is NOT abnormal.

When in the Broil mode, the Bake element is NOT on, but the Broil element is on FULL-bore to provide that strong radiant heat required for the Broiling process, AND for the good browning /crusting of the product being Broiled!!!!!

On the other hand, when Baking, not broiling, IF the Broiling element were on high it would provide too much radiant heat to the top of the product being Baked, and would burn the top.

While Baking, by energizing the Broil element in a lower power setting, the Baking process is enhanced with more heat by the assistance of the Broiler element, BUT without the hazard of burning on the top!!!!!

Hope this is right and helps your understanding.

Baking & broiling elements won't heat after baking element burned out and was replaced.


the surge from the original element burning out has destroyed the control board if you can't hear the relays on the board clicking when you power up the elements bake or broil then its either the low voltage side of the board,if you hear clicking then the relays are working but the contacts are burned out and can't pass the current to heat the oven or briol elements

Frigidaire oven fefl68 broil element comes on on broil only will not come on on bake or clean


Hello - - If you are referring to the bake element, but the broil element works then you would need to just replace the bake element. If both your bake and broil element does not work, then there might be a problem with the wiring communication. However, if the oven does not bake and/or broil but the cook top works; contact a professional to diagnose the EOC (electronic oven control).

Cant get the fan oven to heat up is this a element problem or a program problem.


Hi.

If the fan assisted cooking programs are the only one not working and the oven is otherwise heating and cooking, then problems can be:

Fan motor.
Wiring harness to fan.
The relay that activates the fan. That is usually part of control module.

If instead the fan oven is not heating at all, then check if problem is with broiling, baking, or with both. If the problem affects both broiling or baking replace the temperature probe. before replacement the probe can be tested using an Ohm meter. The probe will read about 1080 Ohms at room if good.

If problem is only with one of baking/broiling functions, then test elements or valve/ignitors, depending if oven is gas or electric.

Regards.

I have a Gas Amana Range. The stove top works fine, but the oven will not heat when I select a temperature or broil. I can hear it making noise, but still no heat!


Hi.

If the oven is not baking or broiling test the temperature probe sensor located inside the oven cavity. To test the sensor read impedance (Ohms) using a multimeter. If the reading is infinity, then the sensor must be replaced.

If sensor is OK, the problem is usually either broiling or baking. In that case check igniter and valve coils, the flame sensor does not fail very often.

Regards.

Top element wont heat wen oven is on bake


The top element normally operates only when you turn the temperature control all the up to the broil setting as it is the broiling element. If it doesn't work at the broil setting, suspect a bad brioler element or a faulty temperature control.
