I don't see any numbers when I pull the drawer out however on the installation manual bottom right corner it reads 8101P506-60 on the electrical paper attached to the rear of the oven it say part number 8119P055-60?

How old is the oven? Is it a Gemini Range?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Oven is roughly 3 years old, it is a electric free standing range I see nothing that tells me Gemini

Does the display go higher than 210 degrees? and does the broil work okay in the unit?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.

when you select bake it will show 350 on the display pad, then start a 100 until it reaches 210, I've never used the broil?

Expert:  Chas replied 8 years ago.
And does the cooktop work okay? they glow red?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
yes all 4 burners work fine, the broil seems to work, I selected broil high and the element inside is turning a bright red?
Expert:  Chas replied 8 years ago.
From everything I had you check and what you have told me, the problem is going to be your bake element going bad, it is not getting hot eneough to get the oven up to temperature, I would be replacing this part to repair it ...
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
thanks is that a difficult replacement something I can do?
Expert:  Chas replied 8 years ago.
This is a 2 screw repair, just make sure that you remove the power to the unit before you replace it..
