Hello,

what this simply indicate from your statement means that
The wires to the element shorted out by not being connected and to close to the metal cavity or the element need to be replace .

This should have tripped your circuit breaker.

Before resetting reconnect the old element or put in the new one then turn on power. If nothing illuminates you will need to replace the main control.

This is easy to replace but not inexpensive. You can get diagrams and illustrations at

hope this help ?
thank you and thanks for using fixya.

Whirlpool built in electric oven bake (bottom)heating element does not heat up only tot heats when in bake mode


CHECK FOR CRACKS IN THE BAKE ELEMENT. IF THE UNIT IS NOT HEATING THE BOTTOM, BUT THE TOP IS STILL HEATING, YOU MORE THAN LIKELY HAVE TO REPLACE THE ELEMENT. THIS IS A 220 VOLT OVEN WITH 110 VOLTS ALWAYS GOING TO THIS ELEMENT, SO TURNING OF THE BREAKER IS VITAL FOR SAFETY PURPOSES. WITH AN OHM METER, UNINSTALL THE ELEMENT AND CHECK BOTH WIRE CONNECTIONS FOR OHMS. YOU SHOULD GET SOME KIND OF READING BETWEEN 10 OHMS AND 500 OHMS. IF YOU'RE NOT AT LEAST GETTING A SOLID READING, REPLACE THIS ELEMENT.

Can I use all shelf positions. Which positions are best?


If you are referring to the main oven, all shelf heights can be used. If you are using the rear heating element with the fan, then I would always suggest using the middle shelf.

If you are using top/ bottom or both heating elements instead, then place appropriately i.e. if using top heating element then use middle or lower shelf positions and if using bottom heating element then use middle or top shelf positions

Are the top and bottom heating elements both supposed to heat? Only the bottom one is heating except when specifically set on "broil".


Most ovens with top and bottom elements have a multifunction control switch which enables the user to select a certain setting to suit their cooking. The control switch would normally have small pictures of the elements, fan forced function etc, to show what each setting does. Sometimes you may only require the bottom element working and other times you may want/need both.

How do you replace the bottom heating element


Turn off power to oven, remove two screws on heating element mount, pull heating element from wall of oven, remove two screws connecting electric leads to heating element.

To install new element, reverse steps. Make sure screws connecting heating element to wires are very tight -- otherwise they will arc.

No resistance in a bake element is a bad element. Replace it.

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?
