Convection oven kitchen aid superbra, replaced old heating element and was working, but recently stopped working. Tested power supply, when it heats up, it stays on low mode and does not get hot. Shows no indication of going higher; is it a bad heating element or something else?

Re: New Heating Element; Has Power But Not Heating Up
Let's go over a few things:
Your unit uses 220 volts to provide heating. Some elements are wired to one of the two 'legs' of the 220 giving you 'low'. High uses 220
220 consists of three wires...two 'hot' (red and black) and a neutral which is white. Neutral to hot will give you 110...hot to hot 220. Measure accordingly and use care! Neutral and the frame of the stove are effectively the same terminal...for safety.
You say some of the wires are burnt or a fuse is blown. They need to be replaced with proper wire...not just any kind. There is high temp insulated wire available from many ACE and other home stores or parts shops. It needs to be thick enough, too. Make all connections carefully and fully onto clean terminals. Tighten clockwise.
Check the voltage coming to the element on various settings as above. If you only get 110/120, you have an open supply issue which needs to be found.
Look for: loose wires, corrosion, burned insulation to ground.

These tend to crack and "unzip" because they are such a tight circle... Kill the power, and meter the ring element for ohm's resistance. If the element tests ok, check the wires to the element for overheating, and if those look fine, remove the control board and look for burnt solder joints where the relays are mounted.

Most likely the heating element is bad. Disconnect the oven from power. You can open the bottom of your oven to expose the heating element and see if there are any signs of burns or melting. If you can, remove the heating element and use a volt/ohm meter to check "continuity" across the element ... it should be a dead short. While performing this inspection, confirm that the wires and connectors leading to the heating element are intact and connected.
The heating element burned through -- it needs replacing. Turn off power to oven, remove two screws on heating element mount, pull heating element from wall of oven, remove two screws connecting electric leads to heating element. To install new element, reverse steps. Make sure screws connecting heating element to wires are very tight -- otherwise they will arc.
Hi, If your electric oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself... Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..
The oven element will not affect the top burners, Unless it tripped the breaker at the panel when the element burned it two. Is there power to the stove? The top burners have their own power and control separate.
