GE standing electric oven range. Oven lower element will not heat up.. only gets Luke warm, can still touch it, although the upper oven element gets very hot. What could the issue be?

Sounds like the bake element - do a visual check and look for blistering or cracking. If it looks normal, unplug the oven (or flip breaker for wall oven) and then you can remove the screw holding the element and pull it forward enough to unplug it and do a continuity test with a multimeter. If it test bad, replace the element.

Hi. I have a Maytag CWE4200ACB wall mount oven that seems to have a circuit board/timer problem. When the oven is turned on and temp set you can hear (at the control panel) one click and the "on"...


The clicking noise comes from the control board relays. The board has three relays. One for for bake. One for broil. One for light/fan auxiliary functions.

Try switching on only bake or broil. If one of the two elements (either bake or broil) gets hot, then the problem is either element or timer board. Make sure that the element has continuity at the Ohm meter.

If both bake and broil do not work test first the oven temperature sensor located inside the oven cavity. Make sure that impedance of the sensor at room is about 1.1KOhms . If sensor is open or shorted, replace the sensor. If sensor reading is OK test wiring and elements for continuity and eventually replace the control board if the rest is OK. Even if door switch should not affect regular programs, check the door switch reading impedance or jumping it.To test wiring test continuity of red and black lines. Check black line between power cord and relay board. Test with particular attention the oven temperature sensor, that is a common cause for your symptoms. Here the part:Long Oven Sensor Kit

Here a wiring diagram for your oven.

Here all parts and diagrams.

How do I remove the upper ovens bake element?

There is a plate on the back wall, inside the oven. Take the screws out that hold that plate on . next take theelement out of its clips and pull the element gently towards the front of the stove. You dont have to move it very far and you will see the wires on the ends of the element. They are held on the element with screws. Loosen them and remove element. Reinstall new element in reverse order and make sure not to push insulation back too far. PLEASE TURN BREAKER OFF AT PANEL OR UNPLUG STOVE FIRST Hope this helps you out Good luck!!

Oven does not heat, clock monitor register f2

F2 fault code indicates the oven exceeded 590 degrees with the door unlocked. This could be caused by a stuck relay on the oven control board or it could be caused by high resistance in the oven temperature sensor probe.

If the element will shut off then the likely failure is the oven temperature sensor probe. The sensor is located inside the oven cavity. It will be protruding from the rear panel in the upper left or upper right corner. The sensor can be removed and replaced from inside the oven cavity.

Need a manual for kenmore electric 164D3871P002. The bottom element is bad. Thanks

Sorry, I don't have a service manual, but I can give you the general procedure for removing the bottom element (replacing is the reverse procedure).
  1. Unplug the oven
  2. Pull it away from the wall far enough so you can work behind it see what you are doing.
  3. Remove the screws from the back panel behind the oven. Sometimes there are additional plates, covers or baffles that need to be removed to let the back come off. Make notes as you go if you are concerned you may not be able to keep track of everything for reassembly. This is the hardest part of the job.
  4. Take a peek inside the oven at the back where the element attaches to the wall. If there are screws holding the element there, remove them. You will be looking for the corresponding location behind the oven in the next step.
  5. Identify the two wires going to the oven heating element terminals. They are almost always attached to the element with screws, but a few may use push-on terminals. Disconnect these wires. If push-on terminals are used, do not pull them off by pulling on the wires; grasp the terminals themselves and pull while holding the element terminals with needle-nose pliers. If necessary, polish or replace any burned terminal connectors.
  6. Remove the old element and do any needed cleanup inside the oven.
  7. Set the new element in place and reverse steps 5-1.
Almost all electric ranges have a wiring diagram somewhere in the back, sometimes on the inside of the back cover. If you find it, look for the item marked "oven heating element" or a similar name (not broiler or upper oven element, of course). There should be abbreviations next to it for the colors of the wires, with the solid color listed first followed by the stripe color (e. g., RED/GRY for a red wire with a grey stripe). This will help you confirm that you have the correct wires (it is unlikely that there will be anything else in that area of the oven except the connector for the power cord). If you get mixed up about which wire goes to which terminal on the element, don't worry, it works the same either way in this case.

My St George Grillmaster oven is not working, I suspect it is something to do with the automatic timer switch, could that be correct

It could be, but the oven would still work when it's NOT in timer mode. Does it work in broiler mode? Top element should get hot. Check the elements if you can. A visual inspection, for burned areas. If nothing there, could just be burned wire(s). Wiring/ elements need to be ohmed out.

Bottom Baking element not working

If all your connections are solid then your controller is defective. Did you get any faults before changing the element? Does the broil (one at the top of the oven) work?

MER6772BAC Dual Range Oven
