SOURCE: maytag electric oven - MER5770AAQ. lower heating element not work

Hi, Unplug the oven and remove the element to test it. Check the element and see if there is continuity. If the element is open, replace it. It can be bad even tho it doesn't appear bad.

I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: my oven still doesnt work after replacing heating element

it could either be a hot spot in the element where it can no longer pass all the current needed for proper operation in heating(look for a discolored spot on it,it may be whitish and dimpled from heat) or secondly,it could be the oven thermocouple located on the inside top of the oven cavity

SOURCE: Have a frigidaire oven, model#

mos likely yes... but to confirm is very easy... unplug unit or turn circuit breaker off... in the oven with door open you will see the back of bake element where it goes into oven wall a couple of screws remove them and you should be able to gently pull element out...there are 2 terminals connected to element with a wire attached to each of them... first we are making sure the wire hasn't burnt off or cam edisconnected and second we can remove wires and use a volt meter and test power... set it up so you don't get electricuted and tuen oven on bake 350 do you have power coming to the wires with element diconnected from wires...if so then you have a bad element if not then a bad thermal cutooff usually located in back of unit ... good luck to you...

I have whirlpool oven akz451/ix/01. My element is square when I look for a new one they are all round ?? Will this work in my cooker ??


whirlpool service center /agent will have a correct element for your unit
the shape is probably for a more even heat distribution in the oven as it will cover the floor/ top area of the oven better

Ignis AXL 905/IX oven and prob is food is cooking on top but not below. Two elements at top. Inner on when in oven mode, outer on in grill . Bottom of oven not warming evenly and burning top of food


Your bottom element is not working and that is why foods placed on top heat up but the undersides are not affected as much.

You need even heat on both sides of the food. Get a new element and replace.

Oven not working, is it the thermostat or element


This will almost certainly be the element and is fairly simple to replace.

Oven will not turn on. but stove top works fine. model#jgbs07pea2ww


A common problem is the heating element goes bad. I have had this happen and you can see a spot on the heating element which looks different from the rest of the element (a clue).

Many ovens have two heating elements. Upper and lower. Now I am no Julia Child, but I think bake turns on just the lower heating element? And broil turns on just the top heating element????

So I suppose you might have it on bake and it is not working. Might try broil and see if that works. If yes, then you are getting power through all the controls to the upper heating element, so good chance just the lower heating element is bad.

If you don't get heat to either the upper or lower heating element, then I would suspect the wiring or a control.

So far as the heating element, you should be able to remove it and using an ohm meter, get some sort of reading if it is good (I have no idea what though). Or open circuit if bad.

Also the insulation on older ranges can "melt" back exposing live wires! This is of course very dangerous and the wiring should only be replaced with high heat range wiring which I assume you could get at an appliance store?

Or the contacts on a control/switch could be bad. I would test this with a continuity tester or ohm meter.

Many appliances have a wiring diagram down low somewhere. Or might find it online.
