It is almost certain to solve the problem, but not 100% guaranteed.
To be certain it is the element you really to test it with a meter.

Oven won't heat past 200 degrees


Unplug the range.
Remove the oven racks.
Remove the screws on the bake element.
Carefully pull the bake element out.
Remove the wires from the element.
Use a volt meter set for ohms/continuity and touch one meter lead to one element terminal and the other lead to the other element terminal.
No reading is a bad element/
If you get a reading your oven control is bad.

The broiler coil heats even when the oven is off.


The oven control is bad, since I do not have your model number I cannot tell what type of control it uses. If you could send me the model number from the tag I could take a look and maybe give you some insight as to what it will take to repair.

Thank you

We have a GE gas oven/stove top and the stove top is lighting as well as the broiler but we can not get the oven to heat up. What do you suggest we try?


i just moved and our stove in the new place doesnt bake things right. it seems that the top coil doesnt come on. its very difficult to bake anything. seems to come up to temp for pre heating, but only the bottom coil comes on. If you put it on broil, then the top coil gets hot. that works fine. tired of burning pizzas and biscuits. can anyone help with a cheap fix? dont have alot of cash.

Broiler elenent does not get power


There should be an elect. schematic somewhere. See if there is any kind of switch between the timer clock and element. I doubt it. Sounds to me you are correct on solving the problem. It would be the clock. One more thing, did you check the wiring for continuity from element to control? You should do this.

Kenmore electrical oven


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?

Oven not working


There is a separate element for the oven (bottom one) and the broiler (top one) It sounds like the bottom heating element is burnt out assuming this is an electric oven.
