How to remove broiler element from a Bosch oven (model #HBL445AUC). Do I just pull hard? Must the oven be pulled out? There are screws (ends, not heads) sticking into the bracket of the element into the oven from the back side (the heads of the screws are on the back side (not accessible).

    you have to get the unit out. that may cause a problem if it's built in with trim. But tis the only way to repair. whether it's you or a tech. Please be sure the power/breaker is OFF while doing anything with the repair.

    SOURCE: Frigidaire double oven has one element not working in each oven

    sounds as if perhaps there has been a thermal overload(switch) tha has gone bad, refer to part number 119 on bothe the lower and upper oven for refernce , you should have continuity trough the switches.

    I have a Fridgidaire Model # PLEB30S8CCC wall oven. The broiler works fine. The oven is very slow to heat up, 20 minutes to reach 250. I checked the lower element with a omp meter it read 20. Is that...

    Hello there and than you for choosing Fixya
    If your oven does not heat, does not heat enough or does not broil, a common cause is a burned out heating element. There are two elements, the baking element on the floor of the oven and the broiling element on the ceiling of the oven. They are about the diameter of a pencil and typically supported by metal stand-offs.
    This easiest test you can do is to turn on the oven and observe the heating element. If it glows red, the element is working. When baking, the broiling element may come on to assist with preheating or to maintain the oven temperature. When set to bake, if the broiler comes on, but the baking element does not, the likely cause is a burned out baking element.
    When set to broil, the broil element should glow red, but the bake element typically is not used. If the broiler does not glow, it is likely a burned out heating element.
    There are other possible causes of these symptoms, refer to our diagnostic page for some other possibilities.
    To test the heating element using a multimeter, follow the steps provided below.
    1. Unplug the oven or turn off the power at the breaker or fuse box.
    2. Follow the heating element back to where it goes through the wall of the oven. Remove the bracket that secures the element in place.
    3. Unscrew or unfasten any stand-off supports that secure the element to the oven.
    4. Pull the element part way out to expose the oven's wiring connected the element.
    5. Label the wires and secure them in place so they do not fall back into the cavity.
    6. Disconnect the wires from the element.
    7. Using a multimeter set to x1, touch one probe to each of the element contacts. Expect resistance in the range of 20 to 40 ohms. Infinite or kilo-ohm resistance usually indicates a bad element and it should be replaced.
    8. If the element tests okay, reconnect the wires, slip them back into the cavity and resecure the element.

    Oven won't heat past 200 degrees

    Unplug the range.
    Remove the oven racks.
    Remove the screws on the bake element.
    Carefully pull the bake element out.
    Remove the wires from the element.
    Use a volt meter set for ohms/continuity and touch one meter lead to one element terminal and the other lead to the other element terminal.
    No reading is a bad element/
    If you get a reading your oven control is bad.

    Broiler element out. Need instructions on replacement.

    Varies a little by brand, but basically you:
    1. Turn off the power. Either at the breaker, or pull out the range/oven and unplug it.
    2. open the oven door, remove the racks.
    3. where the element enters the back of the range, there should be a screw or two one each side. Remove the screws
    4. pull out the element
    5. put the new element in and reverse the steps above.

    be sure and take your oven model # to the appliane store when you order your new element.

    Bake at low temp. Heating element vs control board

    you need a meter that checks voltage (220) and continuity. turn off breaker remove screws that hold element in carefully pull it out just enuff to remove wires.remove wires check for continuity on element if there element is good. tape the leads to the wires turn on breaker, turn on oven if no 220 volts bad board or broken wire.

    Broiler works fine, oven will not come on ?

    Check all fuses. Make sure the bottome element is seated properly. If the top and bottom element are the same you could always remove the top one and place it in the bottom (they usually just push-in and pull-out similar to the elements on the top of the stove) to see if it is just the element. A replacment element may be all you need.
    Hope this helps

    Kenmore electrical oven

    Trying to better define the problem....

    Do you have any cuts, holes or "shorting" or tin-foil/aluminum around your bottom bake heat-element? If so, you may need to replace the baking Heat Element. (Ensure you do not use aluminum foil around your heat element to prevent your oven from getting dirty)

    To replace your baking heat element, with power off; remove 2 screws securing the bake element. Slightly tug and pull towards you for about 3 inches or so and disconnect the connecting wires at each end. Then completely remove the heat element and install new in reverse manner. Whats' you're model number?

    Frigidaire Double oven PLEB30T8AC

    The best way for you to check is to swap with other element since they use the same one. FRIST turn the breaker off! Then take out the 2 screws on the element. The wires unplug, make sure they don't go back in the holes or the oven may have to come out to find them. You can pull the element out and take it to a parts house to see if they can check it with a ohm meter for you if you don't want to pull both of them out.
