There are a couple of ways to check for a bad bake element. Sometimes, it could be because the body is damaged too much. If you see burn marks on your bake element, it probably needs to be replaced. Checking your bake element for continuity could also tell you if its faulty. You can check for continuity using an ohmmeter. If the ohmmeter shows zero ohms, the bake element needs to be replaced. Note: Always unplug your appliance before performing any tests.

If your Whirlpool oven isn’t heating, check your bake element. One of the ways to check if the element went bad is to check for continuity. To do that, you would need an ohmmeter. Another way is to look at the element. If it looks burnt, you probably need to replace it.

Whirlpool Oven Igniter (4342528)

Monday, December 4th, 2006

Your Whirlpool oven stopped working? In most cases, it’s because the oven igniter went out. Checking to see if the “glow bar” still glows will tell you whether it’s bad or not. If the glow bar is glowing bright white, it’s probably fine. On the other hand, if it’s giving a red or orange glow, it most likely needs to be replaced. Remember, anytime you deal with an igniter, make sure you don’t touch the “glow bar” (the grey part) because it is very fragile.
