The oven has been on for two (2) hours and has only reach 240 degrees. (it was set to reach 350 degrees). Is this a bad oven bake element? If not, what could the problem be for this unit. Thanks
ANSWER Hi Roger. You will need to ohm out the bake element and see if has 18-28 ohms, and is not shorted. If it is OK, then see if the terminal block screws are loose and you are not getting a complete 240 vac to the rest of the unit. You need solid 240 vac plus 120 vac from black L-1 wire to neutral white middle wire. The same for the red wire L-2 to neutral. I would suspect the bake relay on the clock control is defective. Un plug one wire off the element and hook up one of the meter leads to it. Make sure your meter is set for ^ 240 vac and command the bake to work. If you do not get 240 vac to the element , figure out which side of the circuit is defective. The unit has a wiring diagram supplied with it behind the panel on the back in a packet. The element is part # 77001094. The clock control is part # Y0309441 is discontinued. Thank You.
