Question and Answers


Why won't the lower heating element in the upper oven heat?


You could have a failed lower element or a failed oven control thermostat for the upper oven. The control is no longer available for this oven. You can check the bottom heating element. Shut off the breaker to disconnect electrical power to the oven. Remove the screws that secure the bottom element to the back wall of the upper oven. Carefully pull the element into the oven cavity until you can access the spades that connect the wires on the back of the oven. Pull one wire off of the element (don't let the wire shrink back through the opening in the back of the oven cavity). Use a volt/ohm meter to measure the resistance of this element. (If you don't have a volt/ohm meter, you can normally buy one from your local Sears or hardware store for less than $20.) The element should measure between 8 and 25 ohms of resistance. If the element measures Ol (open load or infinite resistance) then it is bad and will need to be replaced. If the element is okay then you will likely need to replace the oven since the control thermostat is no longer available.
