Since all the oven features on electric range are controlled by the Electronic Range Control (ERC) board and the broiler element is working, it may be safe to assume this is not a control board problem.
If this is an ELECTRIC range, more than likely the lower heating element for the oven (Bake) is defective and needs to be replaced.
Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

Please follow the bellow steps for replacing baking element…

UNPLUG the range and remove the rear panel. Dangerous voltages are still present with the range turned off. The rear panel is in close proximity to the input power terminal block & shock hazard and/or equipment hazard can exist. Remove the series of screws around the perimeter of the panel.
2. Locate and disconnect the terminal lead wires from the element. Color coding may differ between manufacturers, so make sure you mark or label the wires as you remove them. If replacing both elements, do so one at a time to avoid confusion.
3. Open the oven door and remove (if possible). Refer to your owner’s manual to see if there are instructions on how to remove the oven door. Some have spring-loaded locking hinges, while others just lift out. If you cannot remove the oven door, use care not to lean on the door or put too much weight on it. This can cause damage to the door hinges or cause the hinge springs to come loose.
4. Remove the oven racks, and remove the oven pan (if required – some elements are fully exposed, some have pan covers). There are usually two screws either in the back or front of the oven holding the pan in place.
5. The element will be mounted directly to the back of the oven wall, and/or to the bottom/top of the oven wall. Remove the mounting screws and remove old element from oven.
6. Install new element by carefully feeding the terminal leads through the oven wall first. Reinsert all mounting screws.
7. From the back of the range, reconnect the terminal wires.
8. Plug range in, turn oven/boiler on, and perform a visual test of the heating element to ensure it is working properly. Turn oven/broiler off and allow sufficient time to cool. If the oven has only been on for a minute or so, the cool down period will be brief. NOTE: Stand clear of any exposed wiring with rear panel removed.
9. UNPLUG range once again and re-install rear panel ensuring the terminal wires are NOT touching the panel.
10. Reinstall the oven pan and racks. Reinstall door if necessary.

    Just contacted the supply store reference to your solution, they said that if we have ohms going through element, it can't be bad. May be sensor or other problem? Is there a way to check the element other than ohms check?

Oven heats slowly, bake element has been replaced

Yes, it is very possible that when the bake element burned out, it may have shorted out to the case of the oven, and burned up the relay on the control board. If you have a voltmeter (and feel comfortable in doing this), remove the back of the oven, and measure the voltage across the bake elements when you set the oven to some bake temperature. Be careful, you are dealing with 240 volts AC here! IF you don't have any voltage anywhere near 240 V while on bake, then you probably have a bad electronic oven control. If you have just 120 volts, then check your voltage at your power cord or (better) at the junction box at the back of the range. You should have 120 volts from the center (white or green) wire to either the red or black wire; and 240 volts from the red to the black wire. Now IF you have 240 volts across the terminals of the bake element, then you may have gotten the wrong bake element (wrong wattage - lower watts than the original). Maybe you ordered the wrong one, or maybe they put the wrong one in the box.

Maytag gemini bake element not getting power

First, check the probe. With a multi-meter it should read 1100 Ohms. If reads anything different, replace it. Here is that part to order.
If the probe is good, you will need to replace the control board. Here is that part to order.

Hello Gene I have a fridgaire plcf489ccf Dual fuel 40 inch range. When in bake or convection mode the oven does not come up to selected temp. i have replaced the probe . It can take an hour to get up to...

Hey Joe,
What ya would need to check for is see their is 240 volts power going into the oven,the radiant bake element and the convection bake element are 2 different elements so i doubt that both of them are bad at the same time, (have ya checked on the broil to see if it heats quickly?) if the broil heats up fast i would say the incoming voltage is ok and would be looking to the control board as being the problem since ya have already replaced the thermostat. If ya have a volt meter you could set the oven to bake and see if 240 is at the bake element of if its less and being restricted by a burnt relay on the control board.

My broiler doesn't work in my JennAir S136 range and I think the problem is the selector switch. How can I confirm this?


To do that you could check if the correct power is going to broil element.That can by TURNING OFF CIRCUIT BREAKER, remove door by opening to appx 30 degree position where is shold stay open,pull off door,remove broil element and attach a volt meter set to measure at least 240 volts ac and attach the meter leads to the wires on broil element, restore power set controls to broil and check for 240 vac at element. If 240 vac at element it's the element thats defective, if 240vac not present the selector switch is the problem, espically if bake works

Good luck,i hope this helps ya diagnose your oven

Kenmore electric range 790.91011200 When set in broil mode the broil element does not get hot but the bake element does. Should I replace the broil element?

yes. you can do a simple continuity test to be sure (on the broil) element, but you're gonna spend at least 20 dollars on a volt/ohm meter. if you have one already, you're in luck. just remove the element and test the prongs for continuity (usually setting RX1). more than likely the element just needs to be replaced

My oven heats but it took 20 min. to preheat to 450 deg. today. The problem could have been for several days. I thought it either heats or not heat at all. Could it be the element. Also, when baking,...

no the broil also heats up,depending on the model you have it could be a problem with the element but if it heats sometimes i don't think it will be the element it could be the thermostat or sensor or a board issue depending on the model you need to get in there with a meter to check out if you're getting 240 volts to the element,the broil element get 120 volts,but the only way to tell is with a meter.if you have fuses in the house instead of breakers check the fuses,you could have a bad fuse and only be getting 120 to the bake element.if you go to remove the element to check it with a meter make sure you kill the power to it or you can damage something else.but checking the elements is a good place to start

Frigidaire GLEB30S8CSB- the broiler doesn't work, all other functions are normal. What do I need to look at? Many thanks...

Unplug the oven.
Remove the oven racks.
Remove the bake element.
Be careful and not let the wires fall back into the holes when you remove them from the element.
Use a volt/ohm meter set for ohms or continuity to check the broil element terminals.
No reading is a bad element. If no reading replace the element.
If the element is good the control panel will have to be opened to check for power from the electronic control to the element.
Re-attach the broil element.
Access the control module for testing.
At this point you will be working with live high voltage.
Turn the power back on.
If you are not comfortable with that please call a service technician.
If you want to do it,locate the broil out put wire and the neutral wire on the control. Set the control for broil,place your meter leads on broil and "N".
No reading is a bad control module.
A good voltage reading will be a bad wire to the broil element.

If the surface elements work your ERC is bad.(clock).
If the surface elements do not work check the circuit for 220 volts.
