Access to the hidden bake element for testing.

A:

It's great that you're so determined to fix the range yourself.  While you wait for the expert reply, I did some research on the part number.  I hope this information is helpful.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The hidden bake element and bake element circuit can be tested for resistance from the power board or at the bake element from behind the range where the hidden bake element leads are found.  The bake element leads will be near the bottom of the range and not mid way up. Mid way up is the convection fan and convection fan element. Judging by the image, the bake element leads will be over on the lower right rear area behind the range. Look for two Red wires.

There will be two red wires connected to the hidden bake element. If the bake element is bad, then it will need to come out from the side and you will need to take the left side panel off the way it looks. If two red wires and the bake element leads are at the back, then the element will come out from the rear. It may have cover that will need to be removed on order to remove the element.

There is a Red wire connected to terminal T3-2 and another Red wire connected to terminal T1B-2 at the power board. These two wires can be disconnected from the power board and then with an Ohm meter, place on meter lead on the wire that was connected to T1B-2 and the other meter lead on the wire that was connected to T3-2. The Ohm meter should measure resistance/continuity if the bake element and circuit is Okay. I added an image below of the wiring diagram and I circled the two wires that will need to be disconnected from the power board for the bake circuit. If the bake circuit shows open/no continuity, the bake element has likely failed. If it does measure continuity/resistance, the power board is most likely faulty. The board is likely located behind the range. There is likely a cover over the power board that will need to come off to access the power board.

NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.  

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

UPDATE and request for help. The wire connected to T1B-2 traced back to the Broil element, and the wire connected to T1A-2 traced back to the Bake element. Apparently this wiring defect was from the factory as the back of the stove has never been removed berfore. This may have also been the cause of our oven always being 25-50 degrees low. I finally found the bake element (had to remove the top and right side panel) to get to the connections. The bake element connections are rusted and test open. The connectors are on the opposite side than I anticipated (on the right looking at the stove from the front). I still need help in gaining access to the element to replace it. The only possible way I can see is to completely remove the warmer drawer and its housing, then remove the bottom of the oven housing. This seems a little too envolved a process to just replace the bake element. Please advise.

Terry; I added a link to a previous answer that may help. We have very limited info of your specific model for instructions for accessing and removing the bake element. If you located the bake element, is there a panel covering the bake element that will need to be removed before it can be slid out? It may have metal tabs on the sheet metal that will need to be broken in order to remove the cover and access the bake element. If you could take a picture of the element leads it may help us determine it it has the metal panel covering the bake element or not. I also added an image of the wiring diagram if needed again. The link below may also have some useful information. Copy and paste the URL below in your browser. http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/289860-whrilpool-electric-range-model-gr-448-lxpt-2
