Solved: Fixing Maytag Oven AER5715QAW
The oven takes over an hour to get to 100 degrees, with the upper element getting real warm. Broil function does work. As far as I can tell, the lower bake element isn't working at all.

I guess it could either be the bake element, the temperature sensor, or the clock.

Whenever the temperature is set, and the temeperature is on unending upward crawl, you can hear like an attempted clicking sound coming from the clock area. But I don't know if this is happening because of the element not working.

Apparantly the lower bake element is concealed and not easy to get to - can't see it at all.

How to tell what is wrong with the thing?

I had a similar problem on my new (six month old ) Jenn-air oven. Many message boards complained about replacing elements, clock, circuit board etc but one injenious repaiman noticed each of these repairs requiired that the stove bbe unplugged or shut off at the fusebox then reseet using instructions in the manual. He found that turning noff at the ffusebox then resetting solved 90-% of the problems. The problem is usually caused by leaving the oven door open while broiling which can overheat the circuit board causing a thermal fuse to close-that fuse is reset when stove is un-plugged.
I reset aat the fusebox, reset the clock and other modes by the manual and the stovee works fine now- try this fix- its free and quick and easy.

Hello there! Interesting...

I guess my first question would be to determine what the actual temperature is in there. When you state 100 degrees, is that 100C or F? 100F is not that hot at all.

Do you have a little stainless steel thermometer in there?

What I'm wondering is if the oven is actually making it to 100, or is it probably going past 100 and the temperature sensor is not picking it up.

Do you have anyone near you that might have a voltmeter or an ampmeter?
