SOURCE: Electric Oven not getting hot enough

Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.

1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two

SOURCE: cooking element

You do not list a full model number. Typically a JBP78_____ uses a WB44X10013 bake element. Disconnect power to range. Take out two 1/4 inch hex head screws holding element in at back of oven. Pull element out a few inches into oven. Disconnect wires. Reverse to install. Not too hard if it is an exposed element. A bit more involved on ranges with "hidden" bake elements (which are under the floor of the oven).

SOURCE: GE Electric Spectra Oven botton element will not heat

If only one element does not work, then test heating element continuity using a multimeter.
If oven does not bake or broil, then test temp probe.
If there is nothing wrong with elements and temp probe , then test wiring harness to control panel and timer control board.

Enter the model number on one of two websites below to get parts and diagrams for your appliance:

SOURCE: BROILER ELEMENT WOULD NOT TURN OFF WITH OVEN

I just had the same problem! I would not have known that the broiler was still on, since the red light was off, except that the oven got so hot that the drips started to burn. The only solution was to turn off the circuit breaker.

This sounds like a serious safety issue!

My guess so far is that there is a broiler relay that has shorted in the on position and will need to be replaced. Until then I cannot use the stove or oven.

I have a Kenmore Elite Double Oven Range Model 790.9750. It's just 2 years old. It has been burning food only in the middle of the left side of the upper oven. Nothing cooks correctly because that


Check your door seal by doing a paper-pull test. If the paper pulls out easily on one side and not the other, then you found your problem. You might be able to "tweak" the door, but be careful - if you twist the door too much, you could break the glass. The other (and safer) solution is to replace the door seal. Another thing that could cause uneaven heating would be an element that has a "hot spot", but this is rare. Finally, if the insulation of the oven cavity was done improperly at the factory, that could also cuase uneven heating, but this is even rarer than an element with a hot spot. In all my 9 years of servicing ranges, I only encounter this cause 1 time. Ussually it's a damaged or compressed door seal.

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.

Oven heats, but not enough. Takes a really long


Change the heat element in the oven. You will find it inside the oven towards the back under the pan. The part should cost about $125.00 maybe less. I just did it on my oven.

You can DIY. The element will be about $40.00. Turn the power off to the range. Unscrew the element and pull it out carefully. Remove the wires. Reverse this order to re-install the new element.
Turn the range back on and bake me a cake.

Maytag oven not getting hot enough


When you put the oven into bake it preheats with the bake and broil element both.  The broil element is most likely your only heat source if it took that long to cook the pie.  Need to verify that the bake element is coming on.  If it isn't then the problem is either in the control or the element itself.  Give me the model # off the sticker on the oven and I can help you do the check out.  In the mean time see if the bake element is getting hot.

Electric oven does not heat up enough


I had the same problem before the warranty expired. The heating element had exploded and there was white powder all over the inside of the oven. They replaced the heating element and it works as it should, however, this oven has never baked right. It gets hotter on the right hand side than it does the left and I have to constantly watch whatever I bake. I'm not very happy with this oven.
