Bake Element - Part # 589728 Mfg Part # 4451175

Bake Element

RepairClinic Item # 589728

If there is an oven temperature problem, check the bake element. The bake element is a black tube near the bottom of the oven about as thick as a pencil. When it is operating normally, the bake element will glow red hot. If there is an oven temperature problem, the bake element may have burned out. In most ovens the broil element comes on during pre-heat which is enough to warm the oven up, but not to the right temperature. It is often obvious to see where the bake element has burned out because there will be a hole in the element or blisters on the outside of the element. Test the bake element using an Ohm meter. If it has continuity it's OK. If not, it should be replaced.

Oven Thermostat

RepairClinic Item # 584468

The oven thermostat regulates the oven temperature. If there is an oven temperature problem, this thermostat might be defective. The thermostat is very difficult to test due to its complexity. The oven thermostat has a thin copper tube attached to a slightly thicker tube which sticks into the oven. Inside this tube is a type of hydraulic fluid. As the temperature in the oven rises the fluid expands which puts pressure on a small activator inside the thermostat and shuts off the heat. As the oven cools, the pressure reduces and the activator allows the oven to heat. If there is an oven temperature problem it could be that the thermostat activator is broken, or that the calibration has changed. The solution is to replace the oven thermostat.

Oven Sensor - Part # 1449853 Mfg Part # W10131825

Oven Sensor

RepairClinic Item # 1449853

The oven sensor works with the main clock control board to regulate the oven temperature. If there is an oven temperature problem, this sensor might be defective. The sensor can be tested by using an ohm meter. As temperature rises, the resistance measurement also rises. The manufacturer of the oven sensor determines the correct resistance, if we have a testing video associated with this part, watch it to learn how to test the oven sensor. Oven temperature problems can be caused by other things, but this is one of the common causes.

Convection Element - Part # 1176674 Mfg Part # 8186528

Convection Element

RepairClinic Item # 1176674

If there is an oven temperature problem during convection bake, the convection element might be burned out. The convection element is located near the convection fan and helps to heat the air circulating inside the oven. The convection element can be tested for continuity by using an Ohm meter. If the convection element is burned out it will need to be replaced. Because this element is supplemental, if there is an oven temperature problem there might be a problem with one of the other heating elements.

Convection Motor - Part # 589857 Mfg Part # 4451583

Convection Motor

RepairClinic Item # 589857

Although it is not common, if there is an oven temperature problem during convection bake, the convection motor might be defective. If the convection motor isn't running it won't circulate the air inside the oven. An oven temperature problem is usually due to a burned out heating element or temperature control. The convection motor can be tested for continuity using an Ohm meter. Also, if the fan blade is difficult to turn by hand, the bearings in the motor might be worn. The convection motor can't be repaired, if it is defective it will have to be replaced.
