Check the voltage across the heating element = 110v- 220v depending on your oven rating. then change your heating element. it may be shorted.

Frigidaire - Professional Series - Gas/Electric Range - Replaced bake element but now Broiler and Bake elements don't work


Go outside to the breaker panel on your house and reset the oven breaker a couple of times. It will be 2 breakers side by side with the switch handles bound together. What happens is if one trips but not both, 240 volts is not present but 120 is. that's why motors and lights still work. If the breaker has some age on it just get the number off it and replace it.

Stove on bake didn't get above 265 and never red.


It is possible the bake element has gone out and just the broil element is heating the oven. It is very common that the broil element is either powered by 120 volts while the bake element is energized in bake or it is pulsed by an electronic control.

The bottom bake element does not heat up. I replaced it with a new one, still wont heat up. all other functions work. broil, top element heats up on bake.


Did you test the old element before you replaced it? If you did, then you would know that there is some other problem such as a bad wire connection or the bake setting control . Now you need to test each aspect of the wiring and controls that feed this element. macgivor

I have a whirlpool range mod rf368lxpq o replaed probe and panel still very slow to come to temp. pre heat goes to about 200 deg and then veryy slow to come up to temp and hold temp


It sounds like one of the elements are not working. There should be a concealed element in the bottom of the oven and a 'bake assist' element at the top iether seperate from the grill element or as a dual element assembly. Both of these elements should heat on bake function (not the grill element though), check for heat from both by turning bake on and feeling for heat from top and bottom. The oven requires heat from bot to get up to and maintain temp.

Hope this helps

My oven's bake/broil element won't heat


It could be the stat (temp probe) or the cut outs. if these are faulty then it will not allow the elements to heat up

My oven take forever to preheat


Your bake element is probably open. When this happens the broil element may heat slightly when in BAKE mode and that is where your heat is coming from. First thing I would check is the connections to the bake element as well as the element itsef.

Good luck!

If oven does not heat check heating element and oven control. Follow also suggestion below:
" 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.

Oven will not heat to requested temperature


Shaffy, When baking only the bake element should heat. When broiling only the broil element (upper) should heat. Your oven is a Kitchenaid, you have a 5 year warranty on any electronic element or control board. You may have a temperature sensor that is not working right. The oven just might need to be calibrated, the instructions would be in your owners manual. Your bake element might be failing, it would have to be ohmed out. You also need to verify that the bake element is getting 240V. when turned on. Catriver...post back
