Last used the lower oven Thanksgiving of 06. It worked fine then - self cleaned it then also. This year, it barely warmed ( maybe 200 ) and now, it does nothing. The indicators on the control panel appear normal....
Top oven works fine.

If broil and bake do not work on your bottom oven, it is probably your lower thermistor or control board. If the bake works but broil doesn't or broil works and bake doesn't, it is very likely your heating element. With an ohmmeter, the heating elements should be about 40 ohms. Much higher or lower signals a problem. If you suspect the control board is the problem, they can be repaired quickly and reliably at www.fixyourboard.com
It could be the plug/receptacle that the element plugs into. It could also be that the elements have separate thermostats and that the one for the lower element is bad. If you can post the model number I can look at the electrical schematic and know for sure if it has one or two thermostats.
There is an overheat sensor that may have failed to the open position. It is a little round button thing a little larger in diameter than a dime with two wires. Check to see if it is in the open position
