Are you referring to the oven grill element.? Most have a double element in them, An inner and an outer. Basically for different heat settings. ie. single grill/ double grill

Listing your make and model may help an expert answer your question more accurately.

Do you have your operators manual.?

Cannot get the top part of my double oven to heat nor broil. The oven model is JKP26GOP2BG GE appliance. I have check voltage going to the oven and it 240 VAC and ohm the elements and they checked fine. ...

the thermal control has failed

http://applianceguru.com/forum1/18946.html

check here
perhaps as you get 126vAC ?? strange its half the supply volts
perhaps a missing something
i think your elements are in series or a missing nutral ???
each will measure 126 this way
you can atleast check the sensors resistance

mesure from nutral at the mains to each element point
did you disconnect the elements then test there resistance

even getting 126v they will heat .. half up....

so something isnt right

I have GE model#JKP45WOP2WG double oven wall unit. Lower oven isn't heating up properly. Bottom of lower oven doesn't seem as hot as the top of the oven... replaced oven sensor, not

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

Can one half of the radiant heating element on an Electrolux range go bad?

Radiant heating elements are often dual elements and if your range uses these dual elements then yes, this is quite possible. However, other faults could cause a healthy element to not work properly.
  1. Contacts in the control switch could be burned out or seized,
  2. A wiring connector could be loose or oxidised
  3. The internal wiring may have developed a fault.
  4. The thermostat (if thermostatically controlled) may have failed
  5. Multiple, consequential or other fault conditions may exist.
A DIY 'trial and error' fix may work first time, but could end up being more expensive (and risky) than getting a professional in with the knowledge, experience and test gear to diagnose the source and extent of the fault before ordering spare parts.
I hope this helps.

Maytag electric oven model cwe5800acb. The lower element in the upper oven will not heat up. Can the lower element be replaced without removing the oven from the wall.

Yes, replace the lower element by first turning off the circuit breaker to the oven (110V is still to half of the 220V element circuit even though the oven setting is turned off), then unscrew the two screws holding the element to the back wall of the oven, then pull the element out (may have to tug it a bit to get the connectors through the insulation), and pull the wire connector clips off the element.

The oven does'nt seem to be able to heat up above 150, the fan is working, the bottem half of the oven does'nt seem to heating up. Is this fixable or do i need a new oven?

Hi.

If the part that is not heating is only the bottom element, and the top element is heating regularly, then you may need to replace the lower element.
Before replacement the element can be tested removing it from the cavity and reading Ohms at the element terminals, with a multimeter set at Rx1. Disconnect power before removing the element.

If both baking and broiling element do not heath above a certain temperature instead, then the part to be replaced is the temperature probe, still located inside the oven cavity.

Regards.

The oven will not completely heat

Try a few drops of vegetable oil on the lower pan of the oven, and turn it on. If you do not get smoke during pre-heat, chances are your lower element is not working properly. If you DO get copious amounts of smoke off the pan, the problem could be with the temperature sensor.

If your lower element is not functioning, and if your broil function works just fine, the problem may be isolated to the relay control board. (relay K4 controls half of the 240V required to run the Bake element correctly)

Oven problem

Check that the solar plus grill element is working properly by selecting full grill, the whole element should heat up, if only half element heats up , then you need to fit a new grill element complete.
If the grill element is o/k , then it is possible the top oven base element is faulty, to check that is working, put top oven on and after a few minutews feel the base of the top oven, and it should be hot to the touch if it is not, then the base element has probably failed , and you will need to fit a new one.
These are the possible reasons for it to heat up slowly.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

The right front burner won't heat

The switch probably failed. Remove power. Take off the top rear cover and inspect the switch for signs of discoloration (burned or brown areas). If looks OK then maybe the element failed.
