Lower heating element failed and 1 of the connectors got shorted out. Are they stainless steel and can I replace one of those ends on the wire?
Answer Hello John. Yes, you can replace the terminal. You will need to order the high temp terminals TJMA02881-1 and make sure you strip and crimp the wire good when installing the new terminal. Hope this helps.
If you remove the bake element, can you safely turn on the power to use the cook top? I had a fire and it burned out the bake element with no other damage.
Answer Hello Bonnie. No, the bake element wire have power to them, even with the oven not being turned on. You will need to replace the element 77001094. Hope this helps.
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.
Lower Oven does not work. Will element be cause or other?
Answer Jim, Yes, a faulty bake element could make it seem like the oven is not working. The easiest way to confirm you have a bad element is with a multimeter. Turn the power off, remove the screws from the mounting plate in the back wall, slide the element and wires out far enough to attach the meter leads to the element terminals, turn the power on and make a bake selection, if you have 240 VAC across the element, and no heat, you have a bad element. If no voltage is present, you'll need to start looking for a broken wire, open fuse or bad control. Good Luck and Thanks
In the oven, the top element works but the bottom one doesn't. Are both the same element and replaceable by removing the old one and snapping in a new one or does it have to be replaced by a repairperson?
Answer Hi Kathy. No they are not the same. Remove power. Remove door. Remove racks. Remove bake element mount screws. Pull unit out (if possible) and remove back. Remove element by pulling fwd and remove wire's. Replace element. Replace screws. Access the back area and repack the inner cavity insulation around the bake element probes so the heat does not escape the back and burn wires. Reassemble in reverse. Thank You.
The baking element caught on fire this weekend and was wondering if you think that would be only part that needs to be replaced? Thanks for your help.
Answer Hello Cheri! The bake element when it burns out typically bursts a flame. You should only need to replace the element itself. Your part number is 77001094. Thanks.
