Question and Answers


The top element on the lower oven won't work on bake.


Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to have the elements working correctly in the lower oven.

Yes the broil element will pulse on and off during the bake cycle but unless you have an amp meter or volt meter, you may not be able to tell. The element will not get red.

  • During preheat cycle, upper oven bake and broil elements are used at full power when lower oven is not active (provides a "quick preheat").
  • During preheat cycle; broil element is used at 10% when lower oven is active.

The broil element will pulse on and off on the lower oven during bake and will not get red like the top oven broil element does.

It sounds like if you are comparing both ovens as working the same way they do not.

If the bottom oven broil element in the broil function comes on and get red then the element is good.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
