We just replaced the heating element in our electric range buy the oven still won't heat up. There is plenty of juice going into element. What could be wrong?
Answer Hello Jeanett. If there is 240 volts to the element, and the element is good, it should work. However, low voltage will cause a no heat issue or bad wiring. You need to test directly at the element 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
I ordered the baking element and when I removed the baking element the wire on the right came out so I could install the new element but the left one did not come through the hole How do I get the wire through the hole?
If you cannot get the wire through the opening then you will need to pull the unit out and remove the back panel. If you go ahead and install the bake element then you can just plug the wire into the element once you have the back panel off.
After turning the oven on the main and range breakers blew. After restoring power, the stove top works but no power at all to the oven. Would the oven element be doing this? It is a frigidaire if that helps any.
Answer Hello Retort, I would turn off the breaker to the oven/range and check the oven elements and wiring. Perhaps a wire burned off and shorted causing the breakers to trip. You may need a new element but check the wires too. Hope this helps!

I got a bake element 240 volt from you recently. I don't have the owners manual but in the kenmore parts book it lists both the 208 volt and 240 volt element. Does it matter which is used? Is it safe to install the 240 volt without knowing what the original one was?
Answer Charlotte, The most common power supply for an electric range in a dwelling is 240 VAC. I'm sure you'll be fine with what you have. A 240 VAC element installed in a 208 VAC system will still heat, but take longer to come up to temperature. A 208 element installed in a 240 VAC system will heat, but will deteriorate and quit working sooner than usual. I'm sure you'll be fine. Thanks and good Luck
How difficult to repair & replace lower heat element?
Answer Hello Gary. These are not to hard to replace. You will need to disconnect the power to the range. Then remove the screws holding the bake element in place. Pull the element out and remove the wires from the element. Reinstall with the new element in reverse order. Hope this helps.
