    I had the same problem with my lower element and it was replaced #9752294 but the stove is not coming up to temp. Also cakes are not cooking fully and it is the Accubake System stove.

    Our original element had two holes in it.

    Do you think there could be a defect in the replacement element?

The link I'm providing provides the necessary steps to replace an element in your oven (if this is the case):

It is common when elements go bad on an electric range to have them trip a breaker such as yours. The element are a resistive coil that can vary in resistance depending on model and manufacturer. If you wish to take a measurement to be sure, first, UNPLUG the range and remove the back panel. The terminals for the BAKE and BROIL elements are visible in the rear, each having different colored wires leading to the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. The board will have a separate relay for each circuit (one for bake, and one for broil). It is less common for a relay to short out, but it does happen. If this were the case, the element would stay on conterminously. That's why I suspect you element to be the cause of the problem. Disconnect the leads from the BAKE element and perform a meter reading across the terminal connectors of the element on the Rx1 scale. The element should show continuity if good. If it doesn't, replace it. Now, on the same Rx1 scale, take a meter reading with one probe on the terminal and the other on the outer shell of the element. If it shows continuity this time, there is a grounding problem with the element, and it will also require replacement. I hope this leads you in the right direction. Let me know if you require further assistance. Good Luck to you.

PS I appreciate the kind words. You're right, I don't hear it enough. It makes my day when I can help someone and they appreciate the effort.

Electric oven and stovetop do not work, clock and oven light do.

Sounds like you are only getting 120 volts instead of 240 volts. Either a house electical problem or wiring in range. First go to your breaker and turn it off and on three times and give it a little extra push each time you flip it. ( You can actually flip a breaker off and on without resetting a blown breaker if you doni't push it all the way off and all the way on. If the breaker throws itself off do not reset it. You have an elecrical short in your house or range. If resetting the breaker does not work then you need to test for 240 volts coming into the range. We don't recommend you do any electical testing unless you know what you are doing with electicity. If you have 240 volts going to the range then unplug your range and remove the backing panel off the back of the range. Look for burned wiring or terminal blocks. If there is nothing obvious then you need to know how to read a wiring schematic and use a electical tester to go any farther. Let me know if this helps. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
