There is a separate element round the fan which is probably open circuit. remove the rear panel of the cooker and the terminals of this element are exposed and you can test for continuity

Why are my rolls not cooking on the bottom but fine on the top and my element is working fine


My guess is this is an electric range. If I am right then it has 2 elements--one on top and one on the bottom. Plus you stated it has convection cooking. Sounds like the bottom element in not working right so all you are cooking with is the top element. In convection cooking the fan circulates the air for even cooking.and sometimes has its own element around the fan. Look closely at the bottom element for any burned out or melted areas that might show. Sometimes they just burn out with no outward signs.

Using an oven with a broken element


if it's electric the broil element also comes on when baking or using the bottom element,it comes on for even cooking when baking so whatever you're cooking will cook on top and bottom so don't use it until you buy the new element and whenever you work on the machine unplug it,also you can damage the clock assy. and that's the computer board and those can be very expensive,i've gone in,changed out the element and it still doesn't work from the element shorting out when it broke and it takes out the computer board so hopefully this doesn't happen

I own a frigidaire es200 electric range MODEL# FEF352DWE my oven wont heat up, indicator lights are working but no heat at all in the oven yet the broiler and stove top works just find just the bottom...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. If you have a electric oven or a gas oven that won't heat or doesn't heat properly, here are some things you will need to check. The most likely cause of a oven not heating correctly is a defetive heating element. You have two types of heating elements in your oven. The bottom element(s) are the baking elements. The element(s) on the top are the broil elements. If you don't see the bright red glow from the element, chances are they are not working or not working correctly. If a heating element is bad, you need to replace the entire element. If your oven is warm and not correctly hot, one of the elements may be bad. In most ovens, when you preheat, both elements are used. This would make the oven to appear like it is working correctly but it is not. If the elements are not working, they might not be getting power. Test the wires to the elements with a voltage meter to make sure they are getting power before you decide to change them out. Many electrical ovens have a sensor that monitors the oven temperture. Ovens that have this sensor usually contain a digital display on the oven. The sensor could be defective. Those without the sensor use the basic mechanical system to control the oven temperature. You also want to check the thermostat sensing bulb. Make sure the bulb is good and has not come loose. Now, if you have a gas range oven that doesn't heat properly, first, you want to check your bake igniter. It may have burned out or it could be not working properly. It will be located near your burner. It is also possible that you are not getting gas to the burner. If so, it may be the gas safety valve or the igniter. You need to check your selector switch and thermostat as well. They may be defective. Always make sure you test the parts for power with a voltage meter of some type before you decide to change the part. If you have a part that appears to not be working, it may not be getting power because of a bad wire or broken connection. Thank you for your time and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Frigidaire range model #FEFLFSA, is the top element


When you say Top Element, I assume you mean the TOP OVEN ELEMENT, correct? You have bake, and broil? Bake is usually on the bottom, and broil is the top. In order to have the oven operate correctly, the top and bottom elements may come on at start, in order to do as you just said, "Preheat the oven". This will insure an even distribution of the heat in the oven box and result in better cooking expierences. I would not be alarmed or concerned if the top element came on for a short period to pre-heat in preparation for cooking. This is normal. If the top element stayed on, and did not shut off on bake after the pre-heat period, then I would say you have a control board problem. However, if it comes on and then goes out, except when you are broiling, then I would say that this is normal for your stove, and the pre-heat mode of operations. Your owners manual should advise you of this very process in the guide section to how to use the oven. I hope this helps and that all your cakes, pies, souffle's and the like are......delicious. I'm sure they are. I hope this helps and eases your concerns. Kindest regards, Slats.

The oven does not heat up. broiler and cook top is working.


Check to see if the oven elements work, take out the racks and check if the black tubes on the top and bottom have ripped.
