Bottom Coil on Oven not Heating Up

The bottom coil on my Kenmore Electric Oven, MN: 790.90939600 and SN: VF62863271 is not heating up. The unit is just one year old. I noticed a hot spot on the coil itself a few weeks back, do you think that could be the issue?

Oven want come on


There is a short in one of the heating coils. If you have it set for bake then it is the lower coil. You can take them out and replace them pretty easily. Pull the unit out and unplug it. Take out the racks and then there should be a screw at the connection to the stove where the coil hooks to the wall of the oven. Take out that screw and remove the heating coil. Take it to an appliance repair place and have them check it with a meter and order a new one for you.

Whirlpool built in electric oven bake (bottom)heating element does not heat up only tot heats when in bake mode


CHECK FOR CRACKS IN THE BAKE ELEMENT. IF THE UNIT IS NOT HEATING THE BOTTOM, BUT THE TOP IS STILL HEATING, YOU MORE THAN LIKELY HAVE TO REPLACE THE ELEMENT. THIS IS A 220 VOLT OVEN WITH 110 VOLTS ALWAYS GOING TO THIS ELEMENT, SO TURNING OF THE BREAKER IS VITAL FOR SAFETY PURPOSES. WITH AN OHM METER, UNINSTALL THE ELEMENT AND CHECK BOTH WIRE CONNECTIONS FOR OHMS. YOU SHOULD GET SOME KIND OF READING BETWEEN 10 OHMS AND 500 OHMS. IF YOU'RE NOT AT LEAST GETTING A SOLID READING, REPLACE THIS ELEMENT.

My oven is on warming mode from last six hours. Please adivse


First, check the back of the oven. See if the lil red button can be pressed in. Then check the IR Element, usually you can see the wires burned or damaged where it enters the oven by the snap rings. This was a design flaw from the manufacturer of the element of which turbochef has taken care of.

COMPONENTS
IR Element
The IR element - a dual coil type heater - is located
in the bottom of the oven cavity. The first coil is the
heating coil. The second is the IR thermocouple
wire. The heating coil outputs 3000 watts at 208
VAC. The heating coil's resistance is 14.4 ohms at
room temperature.
The thermocouple coil is a Type K thermocouple
with a resistance of approximately 20 ohms at the
splices located approximately 6 inches from the
heater and 40 ohms measured at the extension wires
at the I/O control board.
The IR element is controlled via the K5 solid state
relay and the IR thermocouple via the I/O control
board.

Its typically an easy quick fix.

Hi my oven is not heating properly. The top coil seems to produce heat, but the bottom one is cold.What gives?


Either the bake element is open, or the relay on an electronic control or thermostat on a manual control is not closing.

My ge specta bottom heating coil is not working. What do a check first?


I just took apart mine and found the same problem. Broil and range work fine but nothing when the bake function is used. I pulled the heating coil and it showed open (infinite resistance). This could well be your problem too. Pull out the drawer on the bottom and you'll see where the coil connects. Pull it and check resistance with an ohm meter. If it shows open, that's probably your problem. It was pretty easy to pull and shouldn't be too tough to reconnect either.

Pulling lower coil and big spark came flying out of oven backwall


Have you had a chance to fix it yet ? The wire has probably come off or burned off keeping it from working. Feel the element to see if it has any rough spots in it. This will indicate it is burned up on the inside.

Oven does not heat up beyond 240 degrees, which takes a long time


You have either a burned our lower element or a wire has burned off at the terminal for that element. The good news is that the lower element is cheaper.
