SOURCE: dryer doesn't work

putzer, I give you credit, this is not the easiest job on this model. If this is a 417 model, on the housing where the element sits inside you have a high limit thermal fuse and control thermostat. According to the diagram I have the high limit should have a black and orange/black wire coming from it. These diagrams can be wrong however. Remove the wires from it and test it with a meter, should show continuity. If it is open, no heat. Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: oven element

model T, either you have a stuck or shorted broil keypad or the relay on the board is welded closed. Try this, remove the back panel behind the control panel. Make sure the breaker is off to the range. Unplug the keypad ribbon cable to the main board. Power the unit back up. You should get an error code. Now if the broiler still comes on you know you have a welded broiler relay on the board. If the broiler doesn't come on..it's the keypad. Catriver.

SOURCE: bottom element will not turn off

Your BAKE element relay on the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) Board is shorted.  I have experienced this problem before.  The board is not serviceable and (unfornately) you will have to replace it.  The board can run anywhere from $100 to $200 for a new one.  Slightly less for a refurbished one.  Prices will also vary depending on source.  This is a repair you can do yourself if you choose to do so.  If you can provide me with your model number (located inside the lower door panel), I can do some research to get a part number and price for you.  Let me know.  I hope this is helpful.

Sounds like a thermal overload has opened up during clean. It may be mounted on the back.

We cooked pizza at 500 something popped and now our oven cooks but not right , any ideas


If you have an electric range, look at both the top and bottom elements while oven is cold. Look for a rough spot like a hole in the element. You may have just burned out one of the elements. Sometimes they go bad without any marks. Turn on oven to about 350 and watch the bottom element to see if it gets red hot. Then set for broil and watch the top for the same red hot glow. If either does not glow red after 5 to 10 minutes, that element is bad.

When cooking Pizza at 220c the top burns-even though the element is on the top and the pizza in the bottom third of the oven, and the base is uncooked - this also takes 30 minutes to cook?


you are using the broiler to cook it,the upper element is the broiler,the lower one is for the oven,turn on the oven so that the bottom element is on,if it doesnt work,then that is the problem

How do i fix an oven that bakes unevenly


the cooking I can't help with, but the oven I can.

sounds to me like the bottom element or what controls it is not working. the reason the ones on top are cooking is that the top element is coming on and browning them on top after the heat has made the dow rise and cook.
so essentially everything is cooking from the top down. so when the temp drops its using the top element to heat with and thus browns the top rack.

check ur elements to make sure both work, if so, move on to the thermostat which I have to be the culprit many times.

Why are my rolls not cooking on the bottom but fine on the top and my element is working fine


My guess is this is an electric range. If I am right then it has 2 elements--one on top and one on the bottom. Plus you stated it has convection cooking. Sounds like the bottom element in not working right so all you are cooking with is the top element. In convection cooking the fan circulates the air for even cooking.and sometimes has its own element around the fan. Look closely at the bottom element for any burned out or melted areas that might show. Sometimes they just burn out with no outward signs.

First start up


You're actually referring to the "broiler" elements. Most electric ovens have these at the top of the main oven space. (Some gas ovens are set up the same way, but many put the broiler elements in a bottom drawer.)

As their name implies, broiler elements are active only when you're broiling. They will not go on for baking.

Broiling is the process of cooking food by exposing it directly to a high heat source at close range. To broil a steak, for example, you would place the pan holding the steak on an oven rack raised to the top or next to top position in the oven (consult the manual) and set the oven to broil. The top elements will then turn on and cook the meat by direct radiation.

Most people, however, use ovens for baking far more often than for broiling. Baking is the process of cooking food (cakes, casseroles, roasts etc) by indirect heat. In other words you raise the oven to a certain temperature, put the food on a rack more in the middle of the oven, and let the surrounding heat cook it over time. When you bake the top broiler elements usually don't come on at all.

I hope this helps.

MY BOTTOM ELEMENT & MY TOP ELEMENT WILL NOT HEAT UP IN MY OVEN THE STOVE WORKS FINE


It would be very unlikely that both elements went out at the same time. Is it possible that one element went out a long time again and went unnoticed?

Do this: Turn your oven on BROIL and the temperature up all the way and see if the top element begins heating.

Then turn it on COOK and see if the bottom element comes on.

If both elements fail to work then your problem may be in the selector or thermostat control. You may also have a wire that has come loose (or burned loose).

If you are comfortable working with electricity, you can turn the circuit breaker off and remove the controls for testing. Also, verify that all the wires are properly attached.

If you are not comfortable, have a service technician check it out immediately. It scares me that there may be a loose wire behind the control panel!

If one of the elements worked and one did not then the problem is "most likely" a bad element. Turn off the circuit breaker to your oven and make sure all the knobs are off on the oven and you can remove the element and take it to a parts store for replacement.

It is easy to remove. Take out the wire shelves and unscrew the screws where the element goes into the back of the cooking cabinet. There will be some wires attached which should pull off.

Good Luck!

The bottom heating element won't heat up


If the new element is good then the next thing to check is the selector knob (COOK/BROIL) and the thermostat for the oven.

To check the thermostat, turn the selector to BROIL and turn the thermostat up until the top element begins to heat. Let it heat up a little then turn the thermostat down until it clicks off. If this works then your thermostat is working.

The problem then must be your selector control. Remove and replace (turn power off at circuit breaker box first!).

Of course, if the thermostat won't turn on the upper element either then it must be the thermostat.

There is a possibility also that a loose/broken/burned wire is causing the problem. You should check for this when you open up the control panel (after turning off the circuit breaker!).

Good luck!

Bottom oven not working


A tripped breaker or blown fuse on an electric oven or cook-top, combined with an element that has stopped working, is usually a sign of a shorted, then blown (if the fuse or breaker no longer fail) element.

If you know how to use an ohmeter, you can pull the element, disconnect the wires from each end, then measure the resistance between each end of the element, and each element to the outer sheath.

A good element has just a few ohms of resistance between the wire connection points, and infinite resistance from the wire connection points to the outer sheath. Any readings other than that means the element is bad and need's to be replaced.
