The oven features on electric ranges are controlled by the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. Commonly referred to as the clock assembly. Each function (bake or broil) is usually controlled by a separate circuit. If you have installed the new element, and can rule out the possibility that you may have received a defective part, the EOC may be a likely culprit. Before you go tearing the console apart, however, double check your wiring on the element you just replaced and take a resistance check of the element. Measure on the element terminals with the wires removed. The reading should be in the K ohm range (resistance will vary between manufacturers). Then measure from one of the element terminal to the outer shell of the element. If it reads a short (0 ohms) you have a grounding problem and probably have a bad element. If you are confused by any of this, please post back with any questions you may have. I hope this helps you.

PS There should be a tech sheet inside the operator console to assist with troubleshooting.

If it's an electric oven, then it may be a baking element gone bad. When mine went bad the rest of the oven worked but not the bottom oven baking section. Mine made popping noises and sparks when it went out. Look for a break or burnt spot in the heating coil in the bottom of your oven. I replaced mine for about $50

Frigidaire FPEF3081MF Electric Range - oven doesn't heat up properly


It sounds like the heating coil is bad - find your manual and see how to remove the coil, and take it with you to a real appliance store and ask then to check the coil. If its bad, they should be able to get you a new coil.

I was baking and heard a pop sound and saw a spark before the oven lost all power? What happened?


OOOPPs - not good , If you saw or heard a pop noise + spark then something blew or shorted.
If the 'loss' was quiet then a fuse or circuit breaker can blow without noise or sparks.
This oven has 4 Heating elements (2 on Grill) 2 inside oven , as you were baking it sounds like a heating element.
As this is a US model I'm assuming you are close to a SEARS somewhere, because they advertise parts made for Kenmore -- try this link http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Evaporative-coil-Parts/Model-867813350/0582/1610510/00007536/00001

Oven not heating up but only broiler works heating element looks ok


Hi There
I have found some stuff for you to read and hope this will help you get you in the right direction.let me know how this goes.
It won't bake 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. It bakes poorly Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:" 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. When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem. Thank you for writing to fix ya.
Best Regards Richard

Oven with convection - when baking cookies, cakes, etc they aren't getting done. Bottom and middle is soggy. Both coils look to be heating, convection fan is working.


Set the temperature one position higher. Convection ovens have a more even heat spread so if you used to bake at the top of your old oven it will now be slightly lower temperature

My stove will not heat using bake but will work for broiler so I know it is not a heating problem. Help!


this model is not a dual fuel, and you do have a heating problem, there are two burners, a bake burner and a broil burner, both have ignitors. You have a bad bake ignitor.

My Jenn air SVD48600P heating element dose not heat


Hi. I believe this info. may assist you in getting your bake and broil up and running:

When your heating element burns out, you have to replace it because they are not repairable. If, when the heating element burns out, the infinite switch that controls it also fails, you have to replace it too.

Bottom baking element remains on


From a consumer repair stand-point; I would inspect, test for continuity and or replace your oven bake heating element.

How to Replace an Oven Bake Heat Element: While ensuring power off when servicing; Remove (2) mounting screws and slowly back-out the element about 3" or so. Then, disconnect and remove wires located on each side of heat element; re-install new element.

Should problems still exist, contact me.
