AmanaÂ Range, Stove, Oven Repair
Amana Electric Range
Electric range oven bake element not working when set to bake; when clock is set to 350 degrees, no lights come on in the oven, but when set to broil, the oven light does come on.
The first thing to do is make sure that all the wiring to the control board is secure, that there are no burnt wires, and that the ribbon connector from the touch pad is securely tucked in. It is important to be sure that the connections are good.
If all checks out then it is most likely a control board that is defective. Your decision on whether to change it depends on the age of the stove. These are not uncommon things to fail in your Amana range, stove or oven repair.

Broiler is not working
The components in this circuit are the thermostat (part #Y0303055), which you set to broil and it is supposed to send power to the oven igniter, and the oven safety valve (part #Y0306429). From there, the oven is heated or the broiler is ignited by the oven igniter drawing a certain amount of current and getting very hot. Once it does, it allows the oven safety valve to open up. If you're not getting any glow whatsoever, the most common failing thing would be the igniter (part #31947201). The ceramic piece that's supposed to glow bright orange or red has failed. A lot of times, if it's not doing anything you can probably see a small crack in the igniter. The other thing that can cause that would be the oven safety valve could have a bad circuit for the broil portion of it and/or the oven thermostat is not sending a signal to those components to turn on the oven when you set it to broil.
You will need to get a flashlight and open up the oven door and look towards the back wall where the burner tube (part #Y0063709) goes into the back wall and you'll see the igniter mounted to the burner itself. There are usually a few screws and a few wires connecting it. Of course, you want to unplug the unit and you can take that igniter out. Most often the igniter is the culprit.
