Question about Amana AER5735QA Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

The baking element was bad in my Amana AER5735QAB so I ordered a new one. We took out the baking element and the two wires were exposed for the element. The red one rested inside of the metal part of the stove and welded itself right to the metal. Hubby pried the wire loose and hooked it back up to the baking element and it does not work. He heard a pop sound behind oven when he did this. What could the problem be now? Thanks in advance, Tammi

SOURCE: Amana inside oven light not working.

check the socket assembly.remember Before repairs or testing can begin you must disconnect the electricity at the fuse panel, at the circuit breaker panel, or by pulling the plug. Make sure the power is off before proceeding. ! check the switch Usually the switch will be either on the control panel or inset into the oven door opening. Now you need to gain access to the back of the switch in order to test it. Check your range's operating manual for access and mounting details. Most switches are push-in types, and you can carefully pry them out from their location with a thin-bladed screwdriver.

  1. Once you have gained access to the switch, label and disconnect the wires from the switch's terminals Set your VOM to ohmmeter function and set the range to R X 1. Touch a test lead to each of the two terminals on the switch.
  2. If the contacts of the switch do not make contact in either on or off positions, there will be no continuity in either position. If the switch is shorted, there will be continuity in both positions. In both cases, the switch is defective and must be replaced.
  3. Carefully replace the wires to the correct terminals of the new switch. Now install the new switch in its mounting position. hope this helps. pls appreciate by rating as fixyaa

although the bake ignitor appears to be glowing, it probably does not glow with the intensity it needs to open the safety valve assy, VERY common problem, go aheadand replace the ignitor, this will correct your issue

How do i change out the bake element in this oven?

Although I am not an appliance repairman, I have an extensive background in repairing a variety of electrical/electronic equipment.

It helps to understand the physics at work in the oven...heat. The heating element gets very hot, turning to a red glow during the cooking process. Metal, such as copper wiring, expands when heated. Screw terminations near the heating element would work loose (due to the heating and cooling cycles) over time and begin to arc, which would eventually destroy the connection. Therefore, the wiring is probably crimped on to the heating element.

There are two probably solutions. One- cut the wires at the heating element and attach the new element with crimp sleeves rated for the oven heat. Two- follow the wires to their termination point in the back of the unit and disconnect them. This will probably be screw connections. This requires a new heating element with the corresponding wires.

Appliance Repair Meridian - Oven Bake Element Replacement

Oven Bake elements are relatively easy to replace but there are extra precautions that need to be taken. Do not touch, reposition, or remove element without unplugging the appliance. On some ranges there is always L2-120V that is live - not switched in but there constantly. If you happen to touch the element, if it's broken, you can become enlightened very quickly.

Anyway, on with the replacment. Remove two screws from the inside back wall to release back element. Carefully and patiently, work the back element towards you to expose the wire terminals. Disconnect wire terminals and install in reverse order.

Was baking in oven on a baking stone and inside the oven there was a flash and loud pop (what you would expect if you had metal in a microwave). Is this worth the service charge to see if it can be fixed?...

Was the baking stone resting on the element? It sounds like the element has shorted out and it should have tripped the circuit breaker and/or blown a fuse in the unit. Replacing an element is not difficult and is carried out from the inside and the back if the oven. With the power off, locate which element has blown, it will probably be the bottom one and there should be a hole at the site. Remove the back if the unit, remove the wires from the element, remove any screws that may be holding itin place, ease the element out of any clips that retain it and pull it out through the front, Refitting the new element is the reverse of the removal.

Oven element will not come on but broiler works .This is the top oven

There are three possible defects to conside. In order of likelihood given what you've described...

1) The bake element is defective. You can remove it and check it with an ohm meter. A good one would be roughly 20 to 40 ohms, a bad element has high (or very high) resistance.

2) The oven thermostat. It controls both the bake and broil elements, but has seperate control circuits (contacts) for each. The bake element is used most and most likely to fail. You *can* check for voltage while its operating, but if you aren't sure of what you're doing its an unnecessary danger. If you eliminate the element (#1 above) and the wiring (#3 below) then the thermostat is what you have to replace.

3) The wiring from the thermostat to the bake element could be defective. (I'm sorry, I don't know if your bake element has a socket or just wiring. It is possible for a bad socket to burn and pit the element's contacts and to have to replace both.). This is the least common cause, but if you test the bake element resistance at the thermostat, that includes the wiring, and if the element by itself is good, but not with the wiring then its the wiring. Since the broil element works, the wiring feeding power to the thermostat is good, and the only wiring to check was from the thermostat to the bake element.

My amana oven will not heat up. Thought it was

More than likely your going to need a new thermostat or control. Likely when the element burned up it shorted out the control. Check that everything else is working good like the broil element and the top burners. If so there is only two other option the control for baking or the wiring from the control to the element you just replaced.

My oven take forever to preheat

Your bake element is probably open. When this happens the broil element may heat slightly when in BAKE mode and that is where your heat is coming from. First thing I would check is the connections to the bake element as well as the element itsef.

Good luck!
