11 year old oven wasn't heating properly. Bottom element crumbled when I touched it. Replaced bottom element. Still wouldn't get above 200F, and takes it forever to get there.
Replaced heat sensor in oven. Didn't fix it.
Replaced electronic panel on top. Didn't fix it.
Checked breaker and power cord, both good.
Pulled panel off back of stove, started checking wires. Heat sensor checks 1097 ohms. Top element 19 ohms, bottom 24.
Found a yellow wire running from back of control panel down to where bottom element sticks through, but the yellow wire wasn't hooked to anything on the other end. I don't recall any yellow wire being attached to bottom element when I changed it.

Phil. If you do not have voltage at the element, then the Electronic Oven Control ( EOC ) has failed. Part number # 5701M403-60
In order to check for the correct voltage at the element you will need to remove power and pull the range out of its installed location and remove the back panel of the range to gain access to the wiring and element. CAUTION ! I cannot stress this enough ! There are dangerous voltages in this area!! After the panel has been removed, return power to the range,set the lower oven to bake, and check the voltage at the element. You should find 220-240 volts between the element terminals with them connected to the element. If you do not have the proper voltage then you will need to replaced the EOC.
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.
The circular element that the fan sits behind heats the oven. Ensure the thermocouple is back in the right place. Too near the element and the oven will stay cool.
Circular elements can be pricey and fitting should cost no more than an hours labour. http://www.espares.co.uk/search?SearchTerm=ADP5520%20element
it could be the oven temp sensor rod located near the top of the inside of the oven,or possibly the bake element has a hot spot on the element and can no longer pass enough current thru this spot to correctly heat to your settings a hot spot on the element will look discolored in this area
I was wrong (I think). the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said. He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working. In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time. Also, I was judging by smell. We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair. Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.
This may be the thermostat control. I would find someone to check the resistance of the element with an ohm meter. It should read 15 to 20 ohms. Put the timer on manual first and try the oven, because it could be the timer. It would be ok to just replace the bottom oven element because most of the time it is a faulty element.
