First put the oven timer on manual position, then turn on to see if there is heat.
If no heat yet, open covers and check the fuse inside of the oven.
you may be able to access it from the front or you may have to remove it from the wall cabinet.
The only other problem would be the on/off switch.
You may also want to try turning on the top element(in broil mode).
If it works then I would say the bottom element is burned out.
Use of the bottom element for baking is much greater than broil, and can burn out faster.
Let me know if this helps.

Maytag electric oven model cwe5800acb. The lower element in the upper oven will not heat up. Can the lower element be replaced without removing the oven from the wall.


Yes, replace the lower element by first turning off the circuit breaker to the oven (110V is still to half of the 220V element circuit even though the oven setting is turned off), then unscrew the two screws holding the element to the back wall of the oven, then pull the element out (may have to tug it a bit to get the connectors through the insulation), and pull the wire connector clips off the element.

I purchased a microwave/convect oven combo last week. Installed today, everything works fine except that the lower oven won't heat. I tried turning the breakers off waiting a few minutes and back on. ...

Oven will not turn on. but stove top works fine. model#jgbs07pea2ww


A common problem is the heating element goes bad. I have had this happen and you can see a spot on the heating element which looks different from the rest of the element (a clue).

Many ovens have two heating elements. Upper and lower. Now I am no Julia Child, but I think bake turns on just the lower heating element? And broil turns on just the top heating element????

So I suppose you might have it on bake and it is not working. Might try broil and see if that works. If yes, then you are getting power through all the controls to the upper heating element, so good chance just the lower heating element is bad.

If you don't get heat to either the upper or lower heating element, then I would suspect the wiring or a control.

So far as the heating element, you should be able to remove it and using an ohm meter, get some sort of reading if it is good (I have no idea what though). Or open circuit if bad.

Also the insulation on older ranges can "melt" back exposing live wires! This is of course very dangerous and the wiring should only be replaced with high heat range wiring which I assume you could get at an appliance store?

Or the contacts on a control/switch could be bad. I would test this with a continuity tester or ohm meter.

Many appliances have a wiring diagram down low somewhere. Or might find it online.

Heating element on upper oven of a wall Thermador Oven


The control switch may be bad on it. If there are 2 elements on the top, they both are not bad at the same time.Check to see if the wires have not burned off the control switch first. Check to see if your breakers are O.K. Turn them both(maybe 3) off and then reset.

Oven is not working


No, the door is able to be opened, light works. No press switch works on the pannel and F 7 shows up on the scren along with time. I even can not fix or change the time. ANd, F7 goes away after pressing clear and comes back by itself after a while in both upper and lower. This is a Kenmore wall double oven. I do not know the model name, but it is not much used in teh last 5 years. Looks like a new one.

Electric Oven doen't heat


cdkd, there should be a TC0, on the back of the oven. Thermal cut out. You want to check to see if it is open. You will have to pull the oven out enough that you can remove the back panel cover and check it. The lower and upper oven should have one. It's a very cheap part to replace. If this TCO fails, no heat. Check this first before buying a new board. Catriver..post back.
