Question about Microwave Ovens

Open Question

I have an old Modern Maid electric double wall oven, the upper oven's lower coil no longer comes on when the oven is set to bake. The upper coil does come on, but the oven does not get up to temperature. I was just going to replace the whole oven but cannot find a match in regards to it's dimensions (24" wide x 39" high). I really don't want to remodel my cabintry just yet. Any solutions on either where to start to repair this unit or complete replacement (wife would prefer a white unit and something not overly expensive). Turkey is only a few weeks away and I need to resolve this soon. Delaware Man

Hi!
I read your comment about needing to remove the control board to inspect it for damage. Looking at the diag. below, all you need to do is open the oven door and remove the two screws (#2 on diag.) fastening the brackets that hold the board in place and you can take it from there.

Refer to the diag. below If it was me, I would start by turning the breakers for both ovens OFF, then, in getting someone to help me pull the oven out, disconnect the power cord and check the power circuit protection devices like the fuse #4, located above the fan and the power board #25 also located on the back of the unit. Before replacing the blown fuse, inspect the wiring, If the unit is mounted over an oven that was in the Self Cleaning Mode that reaches temps. of about 500 degrees, there is a chance that a wire's insulation melted and shorted the unit.

After I replaced the lower coil in my Frigidaire oven, the self cleaning part does not work.


Hi Carol Eggers, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that your wall oven is not allowing you to perform self-clean after you replaced your bake element. It sounds like it could be an issue within the control panel or sensor inside of your oven. I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnose your appliance. -Matt

My electric lower oven doesn't get any heat.


Could be a lot of things, door lock switches, bad element, a fuse, the thermostat a broken wire or cold solder joint. etc

Good luck

Please guys help me, every time i baked the cookies , its always burned :(


The oven temperature may be too high. Get an oven thermometer and set it in the center of your oven and check to see if the temperature on your oven matches it. Many ovens run 25 degrees or more off of the set temperature. My mother's oven used to need to be set at 325 if she wanted it to bake at 350.


If the cookies are black on the bottom, but doughy in the centers, this may also be a case where the oven temperature is too high.
Another problem may be that you are baking them too long. Cookie baking is a precise thing. It may seem duh-obvious, but be sure you use a timer, lol. If the recipe calls for 10 minutes, and they are always burned, start checking them at 8 minutes.

If you are substituting honey for the sugar in the recipe, remember to lower the oven temperature by 25 degrees and decrease the liquids by a small amount to compensate. Honey browns/burns much faster than sugar.

Hope these suggestions help. =)

If the control circuit board is clean with no signs of grease or moisture deposits, it's almost always the membrane keypad.

Oven will not bake correctly when set to bake only the top element comes on


The problem is likely one of two things: Either the lower burner is shot and should be replaced, or there is a defect in the switch. The burner is the more likely problem if the upper burner is still working. If the lower burner works on any of the other settings it could be the switch, which would need to be replaced.

I have a Thermador ME272 double-convection wall oven. After self-cleaning the bottom oven, the bottom oven won't turn on. When I press Lower Oven or Self-Clean on the control panel, I get no beep and...


I would almost guarantee the thermocouple is bad.It is a small rod whose wires come out from the back wall into the oven and is mounted inside the oven,usually near the top.This is a common fail component in ovens due to the temperatures it endures over time,especially with self-cleaning because they usually go over the maximum temperature cooking allowed during cleaning.If you want to test it yourself,you or someone can swap out the 2 thermocouples as they should be identical..Make sure the circuit braker is pulled first.Behind the oven there is probably a cover which is fairly easy to access.If it is possible to switch the 2 connectors without removing the thermocouples,it would obviously be much quicker.If you switch them and turn both ovens on,the problem should switch ovens also.If you switch the thermocouples and the problem DOES NOT switch ovens,the bottom doesn't work but top still does,the circuit board is bad.Wait about a half hour before touching the thermocouple after heatup and leave the door open.Good luck,Greg
