Question about KitchenAid KERC507 Electric Kitchen Range
My oven will not reach the temperature requested, nor will it reach a high enough temperature to self clean. The top element heats, but the invisible bake element does not seem to heat up the bottom. I preheated the oven for 35 minutes and sent the temperature at 375 to get it up to 350 to bake something. The top was baked, but the bottom was uncooked. Any suggestions??? We have looked for fuses, but don't see any (old school probably). The problem seemed to start when my son used the broiler, we're wondering if this could have affected the lower bake element.
Removal of elements that are not in oven cavity?

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
