Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, I'm Joel thank you for your interest in our service. If you have been waiting a while
I apologize we try to help as many customers as possible in a timely manner. I am now
available to help you with your question.
Is this a gas or electric unit?
ok can you look at the bake element in the oven and tell me if you see any cracks, burn marks, black marks, or breaks on the element?
what about the bake element there should be two of those coils one for broil and one for bake
is that a double oven or a single?
well it could be that the bake and broil run off the same element the other element if it had two would be very noticeable just like the one you see now so if it only has one, and it works on broil then there is something wrong with the switch for bake.
I would be much more help If you could locate the model number, I dont know if you have a computer board that controls the back and broil or if its just knob selectors.
Then I would say the bake selector switch is bad, and that prob would not be too much to fix, but I have no way of looking up parts for you without a model number. But that will most likely be the problem. You can prob take the switch off and go to a appliance parts store locally and see if they can match one up for you, but without a model number that is about as much help as I can be.... the model should be located on the frame of the oven door somewhere, but you say it came it two sections it might be that the first section had all the model info on it.
Its the switch you turn bake on with.
so you have a switch that lets you select bake/broil or is it just one knob for both?
on most electric ovens you have a broiler element at the very top of the unit and the bake element is on the bottom of the unit under all the racks , there is no flame to burn anything with, if you have flames then you have a gas oven.
which is totally different
I have to be honest, I am going to need a model number of this to be of any help at this point I don't know if you have a gas operated oven or an electric oven.
ok so the element you see is round in shape and by the fan?
and it works on broil but not on bake correct?
ok so is bake and broil on the same switch, or do you have to select bake/ broil on a seperate switch and then choose a temp on another switch?
ok the bake switch is bad it needs to be replaced
to be any more help than that I will need a model number to pull up your specific unit to find the parts.
lease take into consideration we are on the honor system for our time, all I ask is that
you take this time to rate my service using the STAR RATING SYSTEM at the top of your page

from the same one the broil does
yes creda is a brand and its seems now they are part of hotpoint looks like the ovens were originally produced in the uk
is there any brackets or any holes in the back of the oven at the bottom where maybe there was once another element?
and you are asking about how the oven contents would not burn, the electric elements produce heat by the amount of voltage being sent through them, hence the more voltage the hotter the element gets so that would make sense to have to have two switches one supplies more voltage for broil than the one for bake does.
but at any rate there are thermostats that cut the element off at whatever temp is called for
that is why there are two separate thermostats one for bake and one for broil
I see this question is still open, If there is nothing else I can do for you concerning this issue would you please rate my service by choosing a star at the top of the page so that I
can put this question on my completed list. Thank You so much for your understanding and
