My oven heats up hotter on one side then the other.
ANSWER Hello Leslie,
The first thing I must ask is, do you have any aluminum foil inside the unit? I know people are funny about their cooking habits and take offense easily, but you have to realize that a stove is man overcoming the laws of nature to control the climate inside the unit. You see, putting foil on the bottom or on a shelf (rack) to catch spills changes the air flow inside the unit. There is also a vent under the control panel where the air is allow to exit to set up an air flow to "mix" the temperatures inside the bake compartment. This is all to prevent hot spots inside the bake compartment. If you notice, the bottom of the oven door gasket has a gap in it. This gap is the air inlet. The vent under the control panel is just off center and if an item is setting in front of it, this also can affect the air flow.
If there is no foil inside the unit, the only measure that can be taken is to replace the bake element 316075104 in case it has become defective.
