Can I take the cover off the bottom element or do I have to do it from the back ? My oven won't heat to desired temperatures. Is this most likely the problem ?
To access the bottom element you will need to pull the unit out from installation and remove the rear cover. This will allow access to the bake element. The things that you will want to look at would be the element, the thermal overload and possibly a bad control board.
There was a power surge a few days ago and I lost a few items and one was the oven. I do have power going in at the 220 line. Is there a power unit on the oven that might have failed or did the control unit get hurt? Thank you
Answer Hello Adam,
You should check for 120Vac testing with a voltmeter from terminal P5-5 to terminal P5-8. If this isn't present, the safety thermostat 318004900 could be open. This safety thermostat has a reset button on it that has to be pressed and wiggled a bit to reset. The power has to be off to do this since 120Vac rides on one side even if it is open. If it is closed, 120Vac is on both sides. If the voltage is there, the electronic oven control 316418720 has failed.
Oven bake element went out during the auto clean cycle, now the broiler will not work. What do I need to do to correct this?
Answer Hello Ray. Make sure the thermal limiter 74008715 is good. If it is good, you will need to test the broil element and make sure it is good. If it test good, you will have to replace the control board on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

How do I locate the bottom bake element on the stove which is hidden. The lower element quit heating.Thanks
Answer Hello Gary. Pull the unit out and remove the panel on the back of the unit to access and replace the element. Make sure the power is disconnected.
Oven was on & stopped working, the broiler is working either. The oven is not warming up. Although, everything else is working such as light/clock/timer/start button
You will want to check to see if you are getting power at the control with the unit set to bake check from L1 to bake and if there is 240 vac then the control board would be the cause of failure.
My element went out, so I changed it. I turned on the oven to see if it works. It's been 3 hours and it is still not on 350. The oven is getting hot, it is moving up 5 every half hour or longer. It is at 245. What is wrong now?
You will want to check the clock assembly to make sure that you are getting power between L1 and bake with unit turned to bake. If not then you will need to replace the clock assembly. If you do have the 240 vac then you will want to check at the element to make sure that you are getting 240 vac and if not then trace wires back to terminal block and look for damaged wiring.
The oven does not work. When I turn it on it reads 100 degress and stays there. Does not heat. The burners on the top of the stove do work..
Answer Hello Tom. Test the element and make sure it reads closed on the unit. If so, and you are not getting 120 volts from the control to the element, you will need to order and replace the control 5701M719-60 on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
