OVEN ELEMENT NOT WORKING/HEATING TEST IT

<p>Hello,<span> </span><br /> <p> <br> <p>I understand that you oven element is not heating up.<br> <p> <br> <p>The easiest way to tell if it is the element is to check the element itself you will need a few tools to do this one of which is a <b>multi meter with continuity</B>.<br> <p> <br> <p><b>Testing Element:</B><br> <p> <br> <ol> <li><b>Shut off power</B> to the unit this can be accomplished by flipping the breaker or unplugging the unit from the wall.</LI> <li>Remove the rear panel of the Range (on freestanding ranges), on wall ovens you may be able to remove the screws that hold the burner in place at the back and pull the element and wires forward (Be careful not to let the wires go back in side the wall as you will have to pull the oven out to reconnect the element)</LI> <li>Remove the wires that are attached to the terminals on the element </LI> <li>Use your continuity tester and place one lead on each terminal if no continuity the element must be replaced. (If tests good need to test oven switch)</LI> <li>To replace the element do all of the above and remove the oven racks, unscrew the bracket that holds the element in place at the back inside of the oven, pull the element out and replace with the new one.</LI></OL> <p> <br> <p><b>However, do not remove the element until you have the replacement as reenergizing the unit with wires unplugged can cause electrical arching (direct short). </B><br> <p> <br> <p><span> </SPAN>Thank you for choosing FixYa.com<br> <p> <br><span>Justin </SPAN>

Whirlpool double oven, bottom oven not heating

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. Depending on the manufacturer of the element, you will normally read between 19 ohms and 115 ohms


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. ( by placing the each of the meter prongs on each end of the heater element connectors) If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced. Depending on the manufacturer of the element, you will normally read between 19 ohms and 115 ohms

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.

I have an 8 yr old thermador scd302 double wall oven. Top oven started not heating up (wouldnt go past 240), but then worked a couple of times. Now it just stays at 100. Broil and convection do not work...

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.
Most modern ovens use an electronic control board
to control the oven functions. These models will use the control board to operate the oven safety valve on a gas range or oven, and the bake and broil elements on an electric range or oven. If there is no power to the igniter circuit, or the element circuits, then you should check the control board to verify that there is power at the appropriate output relay. These are live voltage checks and should be performed by qualified persons only. If there is no output voltage then the control should be replaced.

The broil unit in the upper oven of a GE double oven does not work. The heating unit has continuity, 17.5 ohms, when connected, but that should be the resistance of the unit itself with all switches off....

the broil element doesn't get 240 volts,it's 120.also you should have the oven unplugged,pull out the element and read it out or at least one wire has to be removed from the part you're checking for continuity

Heating element on upper oven of a wall Thermador Oven

The control switch may be bad on it. If there are 2 elements on the top, they both are not bad at the same time.Check to see if the wires have not burned off the control switch first. Check to see if your breakers are O.K. Turn them both(maybe 3) off and then reset.

Electric Oven doen't heat

cdkd, there should be a TC0, on the back of the oven. Thermal cut out. You want to check to see if it is open. You will have to pull the oven out enough that you can remove the back panel cover and check it. The lower and upper oven should have one. It's a very cheap part to replace. If this TCO fails, no heat. Check this first before buying a new board. Catriver..post back.
