Lower Bake Element does not get hot. I measured 27+ Ohms at the element and measured voltage going to it. ??????
Answer Hello Jim. If you tested at the element, and there was 240 volts there, then you need to order and replace the element. If there was low voltage, then the control is most likely the issue with 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
The bottom heating element needs replacing. The element is not exposed, how is it removed?
Answer Hello Harry. You will need to pull the unit out and remove the back panel. Now you will see where the bake element W10276482 is mounted. Remove the wires and the screws and pull the unit out of the back of the oven. Install the new element in reverse order. Hope this helps.
The lower element is enclosed, how do you replace it?
Answer Hello Harold. This is a simple repair. First, Turn off the breaker because the elements always have 120Vac floating on them and will be an electrical shock hazard. Now, to ease the repair, remove the racks from the bake compartment. At the bottom in the rear of the bake compartment, you will notice two screws, one on each end of the element. Remove these screws and gently pull the element from toward you. This is done gently because if the wires are pulled off they can go back into the holes and require the removal of the oven rear panel to retrieve them. Remove the wires one at a time, hooking them to the new element as they are removed so as not to allow them to ever lay loose. Once both wires are on the new element, slide it back in so the screws can be reinstalled. Reinstall your racks and your ready to turn the breaker back on and bake! I hope this helps!
