Little to No Heat in Oven When Baking

If your electric range will not heat up, you may have a damaged bake element. The (lower) bake element in your ovens performs about 90% of the heating. Check for cracks or breaks in the element. If damage is present, it must be replaced.  If there is no visible damage, service is needed. 

The oven temperature sensor monitors the temperature inside oven and signals the electronic control to turn elements on/off. A defective sensor may be the reason your oven will not heat. The sensor typically will not show any signs of damage, but will not reach the appropriate temperature listed in your owner’s manual. 

To be certain, you can test your oven sensor for resistance using a multi-meter. If it does not satisfy the proper resistance values, it must be replaced.
