SOURCE: baking element not working

If you have already replaced the bake element (which would have been MY first logical choice) and it still does not work, the problem is more likely with the Electronic Clock Control. The control has two separate circuits that will select and turn on either the bake of the broil elements. It is usually a defective relay that causes the particular mode of choice to stop working. The part number for the ECC is 1166040 and costs about $128. It's not a cheap fix, but it would cost you much more if you had a service man fix it for you. Unless...of course, you still have a warranty. Most manufacturers cover all parts from defects for the 1st year. Some parts are covered longer than the initial warranty, however. It may be worth you while to double check your purchase date and appliance paperwork. This repair is not difficult and can be accomplished by the average do-it-yourselfer. If you decide you want to repair the appliance on your own, let me know and I can give you step-by-step instructions on how to do it.

PS Double check the wiring from the ECC to the bake element as well. You could have a broken wire causing the same symptoms too. Also, don't be alarmed by the failure of the ECC. Although they are generally reliable for quite a number of years, they have been known to fail during electrical storms and/or power surges. Something else you may consider: check your home owner's insurance policy to see if it covers the loss of appliances in the event of such incidents. I hope you find this information helpful.

SOURCE: Oven heat

There is a bottom hidden element that is the main element used for baking and cleaning. If its not heating then the element has gone bad and needs replacing. If you have a volt meter then you can confirm this by checking the voltage between the two terminals sticking out of the rear of the range. There should be 240vac across the two. If you have that then you need a new element if you don't then you need a new control board.

SOURCE: Whirpool electric oven replacing bake element

In addition to what aborcass stated, I just had to fix the same problem. Remeber to turn off the power before you do this. On my stove the element acess is behind the side panel (right side when facing the stove). You remove two screws on the back and one underneath at the bottom, (you need to pull out the drawer). Once screws are out, slide the side panel forward gently about an inch and it should just drop off.
You should see the wires for the element level with the bottom of the stove. The wires will guide you to the element. And you should see that the element is screwed in with two screws to the stove. This is the tricky bit, to remove the element follow the metal piece holding the element to the right until you see a third screw. Remove this screw and the whole thing will come out. Take off the wires, replace the element on the metal strip, slide the element and metal strip back into the stove (take care to ensure the left side of the metal strip slides into the proper position under the metal clasp. Re-attach the screw, plug the wires onto the element and turn the power back on. You should have heat.
Good luck.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

This indicates a open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Lower element stop working, wouldn't heat past 140 degrees, then tried to used the stove top and those stop working completely. Is there a safety feature to cuts the stove top off? Also is the element...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

This sounds as if you have lost half of the power to your Oven. It can be from a partially tripped main Circuit Breaker for the Oven or an internal wiring problem of a burned wire or terminal. It can also be the range control itself. but I doubt that since you said the burners also do not work (depending on model) If you have separate burner controls definatly NOT the range control.

If you pass your model number we can better help you. The fact that the lower element is only reaching 140 degrees is pretty much indicating that your oven is operating on 110V vs 220V. The causes again are input power, oven wiring or the range control.

Reset the Oven CB and check BOTH ends of the range cord (if you have one) for signs of hot terminals. For a direct connection look closely at the terminal board where the house wiring connected to the oven.

With a MODEL number I can look at manuals and diagrams to better assist you. Please pass that complete MODEL number in any future responses. Most any future response I provide after I get a MODEL number will involve using a meter and opening the oven to troubleshoot.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Oven powers up but doesn't heat


When you turn the control to 350 or so the bottom heating element should heat up, if it don't, turn the control to broil if the top element heats up it is most likely the bottom element has burnt out and need replacing. You can find the elements at Home Depot or Lowes, if not in stock at the store, you can order it inside the store.

Bottom elements on DeLonghi AD699 failed.


Solution: buy a new toaster oven. I determined that the manufacturer stopped selling replacement heating elements in 2006, three years after the model year (2003). After market parts makers don't sell the elements for safety and liability reasons. So I got a new one.

Dacor 1.5 years old convection oven...not heating


Flip both oven breakers HARD to the "off" position, then back on. If it did not help - you might have a problem with a relay on the control board or a failed bake element.
Grab a flashlight and check the element on the bottom (if you can see it). DO NOT TOUCH THE ELEMENT! If you find any bulging or cracking on the element - it'd out. Before removing the element turn the oven off on the breaker panel.
PS Model number is needed to find the part numbers.

A portion of the the heating element broke off


This does happen from time to time when the element goes bad. I've witnessed many of them blow open in this manner. This can also occur if something spills over in your oven and leaks directly on to the element. You will require a replacement heating element to restore your oven feature. The following link explains the steps required to replace an electric oven heating element:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r469407-replacing_bake_or_broil_element_in

This is a very simple repair that usually isn't that expensive if you wish to repair yourself. You can order a replacement on line from any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best deal. You will need to use a more complete model number (usually located on a nameplate around the oven door opening, lower drawer opening, or back of the operator console) to get better results for your parts search. The model number you provided only returns partial results.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: In some circumstances, the element failure can cause the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board to fail. This is the control board on the operator console that controls all the oven features.

No heat from my oven everything else is working


If it's gas, there is about a 99% chance it is the igniter, (to see the igniter you will have to remove the bottom panel from the oven- at the back of the oven you will see a small stick shaped piece with two wires connected to it. Oftenn, but not always, bad igniters are visibly cracked, or sometimes even shattered) and if it is electric, there is about a 99% chance it is the element (you will probably be able to see a whitish discolored crack in the element). Both are fairly easy to change.

You will have to look online for replacement parts most likely, just be sure to get the model number from the sticker on the oven (usually on the inside of the bottom drawer if there is one) when you look up the part.

Also, when changing parts, UNPLUG the unit.

Trying to better define the problem....

Do you have any cuts, holes or "shorting" or tin-foil/aluminum around your bottom bake heat-element? If so, you may need to replace the baking Heat Element. (Ensure you do not use aluminum foil around your heat element to prevent your oven from getting dirty)

To replace your baking heat element, with power off; remove 2 screws securing the bake element. Slightly tug and pull towards you for about 3 inches or so and disconnect the connecting wires at each end. Then completely remove the heat element and install new in reverse manner. Whats' you're model number?

Fridgiaire Gallery series Model GLEB30T8CBA lower elements dont work


I replaced the relay board for the top oven (the one with the transformer) and it works properly now. My issue was only for the top oven so you probably have to replace both relay boards since both ovens have only the top element working.

318022002 is the part number for the relay board with transformer
318022001 is the part number for the relay board without transformer

Yes the one without the transformer is more expensive for some reason.

The boards are on the top of the oven, I was able to pull out the oven about 75% of the way out of the cabinet and easily get to the boards. Just unplugged the connections and plugged them into the new board.

To get the oven out there are two small screws that go into brackets inside the top oven door. Highly recommend taking the doors off the oven to pull it out, much easier to work with.

NOTE: On my old board I noticed one solder joint that was burned out and I since I already had the new board I just replaced but you might want to check that first and see if just a solder fix gets you working again before you spend $$ on a new board.
