For Whirlpool Oven Bake Element (Part Number: AP4093085)

Answer or Comment

Think it's the bake element not working well. It heats 35 degrees less than what's needed. So, to bake at 350 I need to set the oven heat temp at 385. This occurs at all temps. Will replacing the bake element rectify this or could there be something else wrong? This has gone on a yr or two and it continues to work with that 35 deg discrepancy. Would the AP4093085 part No. work? Sunflower

ANSWER Hello Sunflower. You will need to test the oven sensor and see if it is bad. It should read around 1100 ohms at room temp and around 1650 ohms at 350°. If it is good, replace the control in the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
