Oven not heating up but broiler is
« on: November 24, 2009, 01:20:40 PM »
For some reason the oven is not working but the broiler does. My wife said it started to cook food very slow and now today it isnt heating at all. The only thing I can think of is the bottom heating elements is out. Would this be the only thing that would cause this?

Model - 3510prw
Serial - 47846424QS


Thanks

Even if the ignitor seems to be working it is weak. Here is an explanation:

I figured it out, the connection to the heating element was rusted and not making good contact, thats why it was working some days but other days it wasnt.

Thanks for the reply.
