Question and Answers

Q:

Why is my bottom oven element staying one?

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

There is one of two possible failures causing the bake element to come on when the power supply is turned on. It could have a shorted to ground bake element or the electronic oven control could be faulty. Open the oven door and inspect the bake element for any signs of cracks or blisters. If it appears Okay, then it's likely a faulty electronic oven control. You can test the bake element to see if it's shorted to ground. Flip the house circuit breakers off dedicated for the range and then remove the screws securing the bake element to the rear wall. Pull the element out slowly until you can reach and disconnect the two wires from the element leads. Do not pull on the wire, pull on the female terminal to disconnect the wires. Be careful so the wires do not try to recoil back through the opening of after disconnecting the two wires. In order to check to see if the bake element is shorted to ground, you will need an Ohm meter. Place one meter lead on one of the two terminals and with the other meter lead, touch the casing of the element to see if measures continuity. Then place the meter lead on the other terminal lead and then touch the heating element casing with the other meter lead again and see if measures continuity. If it does measure continuity from each terminal to element casing, then I would replace the electronic oven control/clock assembly.

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