    The item # may be C272-10211. Or it may be a SC272. As stated previously, it is an electric oven.

    Would an electric ove have an ignitor??? Thought that is for gas. Funny that the bake element would go out. We haven't used the oven more than15 times in 6 yrs. Could there be any other problem?
    If it is the bake element, how do I replace it? If I pull the oven, will I be able to get at the element?

Model # is not complete but if this is a gas unit i would think that the lower ignitor is not igniting the burner so replace the ignitor and if a elect unit replace the bake element . . if more help is needed i need a complete model # . mm hope this helps mm

    bottom oven is only warm sometimes this is caused by the pre heat ( both element come on but after pre heat oly the back does . . replace the oven ignitor or bake element .. ..

    we have decided you have a elect oven so disregard the ignitor . if the oven only gets warm it may be the preheat that is doing it . this is done by using both top and bottom elements in the lower oven at the same time and when the sensor tell the clock it has reached it then the top is of and the bottom is off . . now elements are like light bulbs . you cluld buy a new one and it won't wrk . element is in bottom of oven . turn off power remove 2 screws and ut will pull out do not pull to far with removing wires . DO NOT LOSE THE WIRES ) then test the element . we need to know if it is bad or not befor we go it other causes feed back pls .

Dacro Wall oven (electric) does not heat past 345 degrees on bake or convection bake but broiler works and bottom oven works fine (for bake, convection bake and broil).

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

Top oven glass in door is broken (thermadore).

Your oven model number is usually located on the rim of one of the oven doors or on the frame oaround a door. Some ranges with bottom drawers have the model number on the frame behind the drawer.

Top oven will not heat up

Had a similar problem. The overheat sensor had failed to the open position and the oven control would light up and you could set the temp, but it would drop to 100 degrees and then go blank.
