Q:

in bake mode, is the top element in the lower oven suppose to come on? 79098022802 Kenmore Elite Electric range

A:

Thank You for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com

I understand your concern on how the elements work.

Normal oven function:
Most electric ovens have two elements. In baking, the bottom element is used to maintain oven heat for to cook your food. In broiling, the top element provides direct radiant heat to cook your food.

Now the catch: most ovens will use BOTH elements at once to bring the oven up to temperature, when you first turn it on to bake something.  once the oven is up to temperature, the top oven turns off, and doesn't turn back on.
Here's two tests to do: Turn your oven to bake, and check in about one minute to see if the top element is on.  if it is, your oven has a normal automatic preheat cycle. Turn your oven to broil, and watch to see if the top element heats up.  if it does not, then there is a problem. Now the final complication is that some older stoves have a manual preheat setting - in this case, the top element will never come on when you turn the selector to bake.

If you need further assistance, please let me know. Thanks for visiting SearsPartsDirect.com
