When I turn the oven on it does not heat. back a couple of months ago if I open the oven door rapidly and slam it a few times it would click on and start heating. Now nothing happens. I can see the pilot is lit and it warms up to about 70-80 degrees if I had to guess (probably from the pilot.) Any ideas for trouble shooting? The last time i did the door slamming trick I smelled a faint odor of gas but still nothing happend. Any ideas???

Hi, If your electric oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself... Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..
i just had this problem with a jenn air range i was repairing, installed new hinges door closed fine, heated oven hit 200 degrees and light came on (door opened slightly) as per techline I shimmed the hinge reciever to make a bit tighter. sure enough!!! been 3 weeks she hasnt called back yet (and trust me if it didnt work she would!.. call the tech back and have him call the tech line while in home
the problem could be the latch motor gears are stripped or stripping. try unplugging the range. push the door closed then connect power to the range. keep pressure on the door for about 1 minute then check if the door opens.
I let the door stay open, hold the switch closed with my finger, activated self clean. Let it run for a minute then hit cancel, the stove heating element shut off and the locked door blinked for 5 seconds then finally stopped. Back to normal.
Your BAKE element relay on the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) Board is shorted. I have experienced this problem before. The board is not serviceable and (unfornately) you will have to replace it. The board can run anywhere from $100 to $200 for a new one. Slightly less for a refurbished one. Prices will also vary depending on source. This is a repair you can do yourself if you choose to do so. If you can provide me with your model number (located inside the lower door panel), I can do some research to get a part number and price for you. Let me know. I hope this is helpful.
