I cleaned both ovens a couple of days ago. When I tried to use the lower oven today, it would not heat. This occurs with BAKE and BROIL settings. The upper oven works fine. On BAKE, I set the temperature, it shows PRE- BAKE on and temp. Reads 135. I can also hear what I think are 2 separate sounds of relays (?) clicking.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Most double wall ovens are technically two separate oven boxes. The lower oven box has its bake, boil elements, high limit thermostat and ofcourse its own oven sensor. If the lower oven box boil is working good and less heat on bake feature may suggest that the bake element is burned out and only getting preheated with boil element. Just a suggestion here
The problem beleive it or not is that the bake ignitor is weak ,and it is not drawing the proper amprage to open the gas valve.If you have a amp meter access the wires to the bake ignitor(usually behind the storage drawer) and check for 3.3-3.6 amps when oven is set to bake by clamping the meter around ONE wire wire of ignitor make sure only one wire,either one and not both. if amp draw less than 3.3-3.6 amps replace bake ignitor. I know it seems improbable that if the ignotor comes on that it could be the problem.Professional appliance technicians who would charge a average of $250.00 to repair your oven,have found when the ignitor comes on yet the oven won't heat that a weak ignitor is the cause 100% of the time
try turning your breaker off for 20 minutes, then try it again,, if this does not help it could have burnt out a element or the main board has went out,,, also make for sere you are getting the full 220 volts to the unit,, this will involve taking the unit out
Hi, Two racks never bake as evenly as one unless you use the fan inside the oven if you have one...The fan will also shorten the baking times... The other thing that I would check is to make sure that the lower element in your oven is not blown and you are heating with the top element only...
HI, this is control failure. the logic chip set is damaged. this is causing these erratic commands and the unauthorizedlocking of the oven door. you will need ot replace the control in this case.(EOC/clock)
I found I have this exact problem. Same bake preheat issue: I can bake if I set broil first. However, the oven doesn't work if I press bake first. The control board has already been replaced a couple times over the years. Is this another replacement??
i would first check the lower units bake element , usually a visually inspection is enough to determine if its good or nor, usually a burn mark can be seen on the element itself, and if you can even see the element the bottom f the oven cavity will lift off for better inspection
