    On my unit the Broiler does not work. Is it the control panel or the broiler rod?

    I have an older hotpoint double electric oven. The upper oven bake heating element doesn't work. I have tried to find the model number, but have only found the catelog number 10RL90G and the serial number MG 74163. None of the local appliance repair outfits are able to help me, including Sears parts and repair. Any suggestions?

    I have a Gaffers & Sattler built in oven. It stopped working and I saw sparks from the back of the heating element. I don't know if the element needs replacing or if the wire behind it is burnt out. I haven't been able to find a serial number.

Visually inspect the element for any kind of rupture on the shield covering the element. If it looks good the next step is the wire connections at the back of the element. Most likely is has a burnt wire.You will have to pull the back cover off to check this.

is the element still in one piece and mostly smooth to the touch? if you find any part of the element very rough where it looks like it actually melted then you've found your problem. post an update if this doesn't solve the problem.

Kenmore electric oven will not bake


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.

Hotpoint oven won't heat above 250 degrees broiler works fine as well as the stove top


either its the oven sensor rod located at the top of the ovens cavity,or your bake element could be getting a hot spot which is when it gets a discolored spot in the element and can no longer pass sufficient current to heat the oven past 250 degrees

check the bake (lower) element, mine just went out. It was easy to spot the problem once I pulled the element out, the wire had burnt off the end. Please remember to turn the power off first.

Kenmore oven lower element sporadically heating.


When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

Kenmore electrical oven


Trying to better define the problem....

Do you have any cuts, holes or "shorting" or tin-foil/aluminum around your bottom bake heat-element? If so, you may need to replace the baking Heat Element. (Ensure you do not use aluminum foil around your heat element to prevent your oven from getting dirty)

To replace your baking heat element, with power off; remove 2 screws securing the bake element. Slightly tug and pull towards you for about 3 inches or so and disconnect the connecting wires at each end. Then completely remove the heat element and install new in reverse manner. Whats' you're model number?
