Question about Whirlpool GBD307PDS Electric Double Oven

Need help replacing the Broil Element in our Whirlpool Dbl Oven GBD307

Wierd thing, we were broiling something tonight and the pan got hot and curled up and touched the broil element which caused quite a fireworks show in the oven. We turned it off, but watched as the element literally burned out and then broke into pieces. It looks fairly easy to replace, but where do we get the part #? Are there instructions out there on how to replace it?
Double Oven part# is GBD307PDS7

It is easy to replace.   Turn power off to the oven.    Remove the screws holding the element to the inside of the oven, Carefully pull the element out of the oven liner until you can unplug the wires from the element. Hook up your new element and ease it into place and re-install screws.

You can get the part from any whirpool servicer or you can order it from Sears.

I have a Maytag double oven Model # MER6757BAS. On the upper oven I had to replace the broiler element which was not a problem at all. The lower element works but the upper element does not. Set to broil...


Was the original broil element broken or burnt?
Did you reuse the original spacers to ensure the new element is not touching the oven interior?
1) To determine if the broil element has burned out, use a multimeter to test the element for continuity. If the broil element does not have continuity, replace it. (Perform this test, even on a brand new element).
2) If element tests OK, then reinstall, and test continuity of the element wires themselves.
It really comes down to these two items. Element or wires.

Why does only broil come on when i push the bake button?


Bake and broil elements can be tested with an ohm meter for continuity. There is a relay in control / clock for both bake and broil elements. If elements test good, then those relays need to be tested for voltage.

My oven will not get hot


1.Aclicking sound could be something wrong with a relay. Check for any loose connections around the main control board on your oven. The click you hear is a relay losing power and switching back on. If the clock resets then something is causing power interruptions to the board.

If your oven has internal fuses, a wiring or component problem could have caused a fuse to blow. A blown fuse is an indication that a component has shorted or failed, and the problem will need to be corrected. Most ovens that use fuses will have an indication of the circuits that are affected by a particular fuse. If an oven fuse has blown, then you should inspect the oven element and the associated wiring to determine the cause before replacing the fuse.

THINGS TO CHECK:

the broil element
is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn't working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.

If there is no continuity then the element will need to be replaced. If the wires are damaged then they will need to be repaired. If the element is ok then you will need to check the broil circuit to determine the cause. This involves live voltage checks and should only be performed by qualified persons. Components to check include fuses, if the range is equipped, and oven control thermostat or electronic control.


The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced.

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

1998 Whirlpool single oven won't get hot, why?


1.Power cord damage?Damaged rubber with wires showing through or the wire is being pinched can cause issues. Electrical tape is acceptable for covering damaged wires.
2.Aclicking sound could be something wrong with a relay. Check for any loose connections around the main control board on your oven. The click you hear is a relay losing power and switching back on. If the clock resets then something is causing power interruptions to the board.

4.Even a bad relay door switch will hinder your oven from operating.

Will the oven work without the broiler attached


You could use the oven without the broiler. It is customary that the oven will use the broil element to even out the heat in the oven for better baking but you could use if. it just may not bake evenly. There could be two things that is causing the broil element to stay energized. the control is not shutting down or there is a short to ground in the broil element. Have the broil element tested, it could just need replacing. If it is in the control that is a bigger problem.

What does a broil pan do


The broil pan is used to broil meats such as steak or chops. the top part has slots that allow the grease to run into the lower part. they are usually under the burner in the lower door. but some ovens have the broil element in the oven proper. then the pan should be placed within a few inches of the broil element. You should monitor the cooking process because the broiler heats the food very quickly and could burn very fast.

My oven will not heat up to temperature


It may be the bake element that has gone out. The self clean usually uses the broil element to heat the oven. And most oven will either put 120 volts to the broil element while baking or pulse the broil element while baking. This will cause the oven to get warm but not hot. Check the oven bake element it cound be bad or a wire may have burned off.

The bake element (in over) will no longer get hot, should the element itself be replace or could it be something else? Range model RS675PXEQ0


It does sound like the bake element is probably the problem. Many ovens turn on the broil element with 120 volts to even out the heat in the oven or pulse the broil element. This may be why the oven is warm but not baking.

Frigidaire single oven broiling


hi,
The pan and it's grid is all you need, The broiler pan and it grid allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler. DO NOT use the pan without its grid. DO NOT cover the grid with foil. Some helpful info.. Preheating is suggested when searing rare steaks. Broil on side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Broiling times vary, so watch the food closely. Time not only depends on the distance from element, but on the thickness and aging of meat, fat content and doneness preferred. The first side usually requires a few minutes longer than second. BE SURE THE DOOR IS OPEN AN INCH OR TWO WHILE BROILING
