Electric range heating elements don't work at all for "bake" function, but "broil" function works (top element) & stovetop works.


The bake (bottom) element has probably burnt out. It's very easy and inexpensive to change them.

First order a new one. Get the range model number and search Google for the element part number. You will get a number of appliance parts suppliers. Check a couple of them for prices and record the part number. (A few suppliers use private part numbers. Most use the manufacturer's part number which will be the one which appears most frequently.)

You could then order from the least expensive supplier, but don't do so. Now search Amazon and eBay for that part number. You will find the part for less than half the price. Order one.

When it arrives, do this:
  1. Unplug the range or make SURE it is turned off.
  2. Remove the old element. It will be held in place with a single Phillips head screw or a hex-head screw. Use the right sized screwdriver or nut driver or socket-wrench as appropriate. The screw will be tight after years of baking. After removing the screw, pull and wiggle the element until it comes unplugged.
  3. Push the new element into the socket and secure it with the screw.
Turn on the oven and let it heat for 5-10 minutes before baking to burn off the bad-smelling coating on the new element.

Should we repair heat element, or buy a new oven?


It sounds like your element is electric. When food drips on that element it can cause a heat spot on the insulation around the electric element and eventually burns through. You can easily replace that element for about $50 - $60. It requires about three hand tools and 15 minutes to remove old one and install a new one. You should be in business for another 14 years if you clean any drippings on the element itself.

We have a free standing Frigidaire flat top stove oven that is electric I decided to use the self cleaning feature on it and the bottom element burnt into My husband removed the bottom element before...


Hi Gina,
From what you are describing, it seems there was an "arc" from where the element itself was supposed to connected to the power in the bottom portion of the stove.
This may have caused the connector itself to burn, seal, or carbonize I.E. Blacken and not allow the element to properly connect to the internal workings.
The other possibility, because the broil is still working is that this particular model of a stove has multiple fuses for controlling the different elements in the oven portion.
You would need to consult the manual, likely available online via model number. The ranges themselves rarley change the electronics inside and if you cannot find the exact model number maybe a newer model 3 year newer would help.
The first thing to check is going to be the fuses themselves. If you have a multimeter available to check the current in the fuses.
If indeed it is the connectors where the element "clips" in to the base of the oven that has gone out, the work to replace it might be more tedious to accomplish.
If you find it is not the fuses, you can consult a repair guy, but likely, parts and labor will be more expensive than replacing the range itself.

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

The filament on the bottom oven broke in two places and is sitting on the bottom of the oven. Can it be replaced and is it expensive?


I assume you mean the electric oven element which is situated in the bottom of the oven. It can be replaced. Total cost in AUST $ would be about $150 - $200.

Fan forced oven element not heating up


Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Below is a link to common solutions that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
It provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Once you access the site you will be able to navigate numerous pages of information on your product. You will need to enter your model number to access your product information.

Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint. I will post the most common solutions to your complaint. For more specific information please refer to the tip and/or link provided. Here are some things to look for:

Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
