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)

Hi I have an old 1970's St.george imperial wall oven and I can't turn the roast light off which makes the oven heat up to under half the heat it normally does. How do I turn the roast light off?

since I have no model or serial, I assume this is an electric oven based on the description provided. this is usually an indication that the heating element has gone bad. possibly having a short to ground which completes a partial circuit in turn giving you heat and a light. I would look in this direction first.

Why has baumatic B501SS oven covered in light gray coating inside when heated, now not working

It sound like the heating element burned out. Check the element and see if there is a burned spot or blister somewhere along the element. If so the element will need replacing.

Oven heats very slowly

15 minutes until the signal beeps? completely normal, BUT it will take up to 45 minutes for any oven to properly preheat COMPLETELY.

Moved Kenmore electric oven (2 yrs old) and now neither the oven or stovetop heat up. The clock is set.

This may sound silly, but go check your circuit breaker and flip it completely off and then back on. Sometimes it does not completely trip and your clock only needs 120 volts to work which you have, but the heating coils need 240 volts. If you have an older house that has a fuse panel instead of circuit breakers you could have a blown fuse.

Oven isn't heating

I assume this is an electric oven...
Most likely cause is the element - this can fairly easily be replaced.
The next cause could be a defective thermostat - behind the heat control knob.
The next is the cut-out, which senses the heat in the oven and stops it overheating completely.
Only an experienced technician should replace parts in an oven so if you are not competent, please contact your local repair shop.

TOP OVEN WORKS OK BUT BOTTOM OVEN DOES NOT HEAT UP

Hello,

There are a number of reasons why you may find that your oven doesn't heat up, and troubleshooting oven heating elements is not too complicated, so you should be able to manage this in a few hours. When you are trying to decide what is the cause of your oven not heating up properly, you should be able to identify the different problems, and also understand how to repair the oven without too much difficulty. If you find a lot of problems, then you may need to provide a different solution, for example replacing the heating element and fittings completely.
Heating Element is Broken
This is perhaps the most common cause of the oven not heating up. The element inside the oven will not become hot if the electrical connections are damaged, or if the element itself is not working. The heating element can be removed and replaced easily, and this is perhaps a very good idea if you have any problems with the heating system of your oven. Test the heating element by firing up the oven with the door open, and your hand close to the front of the element. You should be able to feel it warming up, so if it doesn't, take of the screws which hold it in place, and then unplug the connections. You can take the heating element to a store and they should be able to replace the part for you.

Hope this help in solving the problem.....

I used the Self Clean function on the oven and now the oven will not pre-heat or heat at all. All that happens once the clean is complete is that the clean light blinks. I have cycled the self clean...

unfortunately the reset button is usually inside the controls compartment, the upper back piece has to be opened and push the red reset button inside.Hpefully this helps and dont forget to unplug first for a couple minutes to attempt erasing fault

Oven heats, but does not get to correct temperature as fast as it did, lower oven heats OK . When the pre-heat time is complete, oven was still 100 degrees less than designated.

when you first turn it on both elements should come on(your top element may be burned out)if so turn breakers off just take out the screws on the mounting plate pull out and take wires off and replace
