Hello, I have an Amana Convection electric range that needs a new baking element. However the part is no longer availble. Is there an alternative part?
Answer Hello Don! According to the model number and MFG number listed the bake element for your appliance is part number 77001094. This part is available for purchase on our site. Thanks!
What are the length outward from the flange to the front of the element and what is the width? The element I took out is roughly 13" from the flange to the front and roughly 14" Wide and the ends are 1-3/4" apart. I was told that you can't use an element that is longer front to back due to the danger it could cause. Is this true? In appearance, it looks like the one pictured on this site.
The bake element that is for your unit is part number 77001094 and measures approximately 1 3/4" between terminals. The width is approximately 15" and the length is approximately 13". The only part that there would be an issue with is from the mounting plate to the end of the terminal. If this is too long it would cause an issue. This distance is approximately 3 1/2" but you can gain approximately 3/4" by bending the terminals downward.
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.
