My broil element stays red ,does the thermal fuse Control this.
The thermal fuse would not control the element. The element is controlled by the control board and if it is staying on all the time then the control board would be the issue and need to be replaced.
Bake setting very slow to heat takes a couple hours just to get 250 and does not get higher than that.
Broil appears to be working ok.
Answer Hello Schneur. It sounds like either the bake element is bad, or the wiring coming to the element is bad or the control. You can test the element. It should read closed for continuity. 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
