If you can gain access to the clock you could find the wires that goes to the bake element - if you can measure and confirm the resistance of the element chances you may have also fried the relay of the board - check it out

What would cause the broiler element to override the baking element? My oven has lost its mind. It doesn't matter what setting I use, The broil element takes over and burns everything. Please help.


Not 100% sure but my guess. Most electric ovens usually bake with both elements on. The bake element(bottom) is usually on at full power with 240 volts to it. The broil element(top) is usually on at 1/2 power 120 volts to help even out the temperature. My guess is your bottom element is not coming on at all either because it is burned out or something in the control system. So what is happening is the oven is trying to heat to the set temp with only the top element keeping it on much longer than it normally should be on and burning everything. Now if you set the oven for bake and the top is on red hot, you have a control system problem something like a bad selector switch or main control board if the oven has a electronic control.

How do I check heating elements?


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

Whirlpool Self Cleaning Oven - Model RF360BXXW Serial # FA4005915 Turned oven on bake - bottom element is not heating however top element is. Tried to change setting to 'timed bake', 'broil' and 'clean'...


Your lower element may be burned out. Generally you can firmly grasp and pull it out. Take it to a repair shop and get a replacement unit. Then simply snap it back into the same outlet where you remove the first one. It sound as if you've tried everything else so it must be the unit that is bad.

Oven wont lite or work


You say it will not lite ? I must think you have a gas range and you most likely have a bad ignitor. If the range is electric you may have a bad bake element. You can change this easily from inside the oven. Simply unplug the range, then inside you will see the bake element on the bottom of the oven. You will find two screws holding it in. Remove the two screws and gently pull the element out of the hole. I will have two wires attached. You can remove the wires by simply pulling them off, some will be screwed to the element. You can then check the element with a voltage meter for continuity. If you have none the element is bad. Hope this helps and feel free to call if you need further help.

My amana oven will not heat up. Thought it was


More than likely your going to need a new thermostat or control. Likely when the element burned up it shorted out the control. Check that everything else is working good like the broil element and the top burners. If so there is only two other option the control for baking or the wiring from the control to the element you just replaced.

My whirlpool gold accubake system-oven is not heating right. about a few weeks back I saw the bake element spark and thought it was no problem, but I guess I was wrong. Did I fry the bake element or is...


yes if you turn the oven on bake that element should heat pretty quick, if not its toast..
if i had a model # i could be more specific but generally all you'd need to do is turn off the breaker or unplug the unit.
remove the screws that hold it to the rear of the cabinet, and slide the element straight back towards the front enough to expose the screw or slide on connectors.
now you can either remove 1 wire at a time and have the new element sitting under the old one and transfer then as you go, or remove 1 wire and bend if over some so it won't slide back into the unit and get lost..
after the wires are reconnected slide the element back into place and replace the screws and restore power and cook..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn
