It may be the bake element that has gone out. The self clean usually uses the broil element to heat the oven. And most oven will either put 120 volts to the broil element while baking or pulse the broil element while baking. This will cause the oven to get warm but not hot. Check the oven bake element it cound be bad or a wire may have burned off.
It is common to have the broil element pulse on or they will send 120 volts to the broil element to even the heat in the oven. Some ovens have a preheat function that will power the broil and bake simultaneously until the oven reaches temperature then the broil element will shut down. If they both stay on red continuously through the entire bake process then something is wrong. Probably a stuck contact on the control.
I am assuming this is an electric oven? If you have an ohm meter you can verify that the bake or broil element is good by measuring the resistance across the element. If it reads short then the elements are bad. The more expensive problem which usually tends to be the case is the oven controller board. There are to relays that control the high voltage current that is supplied to the elements. When the oven is turned on a signal from the oven controller activates the coil on the relay and closes the contact allowing current to flow to the element. There are two relays, one for broil and the other for bake. Try the oven on broil to see if that element heats up. If it does it could be the bake element, if it doesn't you till need to get a replacement oven controller board. They usually call them timer modules or clock modules. Good luck!
Hello there: first chevck to see if the broil feature will work but if both the broil and bake feature does not work meaning it will not heat up if you have selected either the bake or broil follow these solutions that i have provided for you . It won't bake or broilIf neither the bake nor the broiler heating
elements heat, but the range burners still work, the clock may be set
for a timed or self-cleaning cycle. Check to be sure the clock buttons
and knobs are set properly. If your clock has a knob that says "push for
man(ual)", push the knob in and try the baking and broiling elements
again. If it still does not operate properly, you probably have a defect
in the thermostat, selector switch, or common wiring. If the oven does not have a separate
bake/broil/etc. selector switch, the problem may be with the thermostat.
But it's not easy to check the selector switch or thermostat for proper
operation. If you suspect a problem in this area, call a qualified
appliance repair technician.
on the back of oven there is a hi limit thermal fuse /it is a one time fuse /eplace it cost about 23. to28 .00 . / you willhave to remove oven from wall ( two are best .. set it on a small table /cable may be short.. hope this helped /pls leave feed back ..
I have a 2yo Kitchenaid oven, and my advice is first, don't use convection for cakes or pizza. Use the thermal oven. For pizza preheat to 500 degrees, then put the pizza on the lowest rack, and bake for 7-8 minutes.This way the bottom browns, and the top doesn't get broiled from the top element coming on during the bake cycle.
As for cakes, again place them on the low rack so that they get bottom heat. I keep my eye on the oven and when the broil element comes on I stick a piece of foil over the cake until it goes off. Otherwise it will set the top and the cake won't rise as much. Even doing that cakes don't rise as much as they did in my old oven, and they brown too much on top.
The convection oven does a good job of cookies, and the broil mode is okay.
I wish I hadn't bought this oven, but I didn't know about the upper (broil) element coming on during the bake cycle until I'd had it for awhile, and it was too late to return it.
If anyone's shopping for an oven, ask questions, and don't get one that maintains the oven temperature by activating the broil element when baking.
does the bake element come on at all? if so, try the oven out. do a bake @ 350 allow it to pre-heat, and see if once the pre-heat is comlete, id the broil shuts off. on many ovens at the beginning of the cycle during pre-heat both bake and broil elements are powered.
other than that it may be a control board, or a burnt and crossed wire in the harness.
When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.
You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.
If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.
I found I have this exact problem. Same bake preheat issue: I can bake if I set broil first. However, the oven doesn't work if I press bake first. The control board has already been replaced a couple times over the years. Is this another replacement??
