Question and Answers


Oven is not coming up to temperature; ranges operates normally. What part is needed?


Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The broil element and bake element must heat in order for the oven to reach operating temperatures. The broil element alternates with the bake element. From a cold start, set the oven to broil and confirm if the broil element is heating or not. The set the oven for bake and see if the bake element is getting hot or not. One of the two is likely not heating. This failure could be caused by a faulty bake or broil element, a faulty electronic oven control or possible a burn wire connection.

I suggest beginning by seeing which oven element is not heating and then disconnect the power cord from the power source and then remove the heating element and test it for resistance with an Ohm meter. You can also slide the range out and remove the rear panel to access and disconnect the bake and broil element for testing. If both oven elements tests Okay with continuity/resistance, I suspect a faulty electronic oven control if you do not have any burnt wire connections in the bake or broil electrical circuits.

At this time I can not say what part is faulty without testing the bake and broil elements.
