Usually this problem is a bad connection to the ovens main connection point on the back of the oven. But it could also be a bad heating element or temp problem. Please let me know if they glow red when you try to use that oven, so I can narrow this down for you;-)

Thank you

The only way I can view the elements is to take the back plate of the oven out. Is this what you are suggesting?
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.

Hi yes we need to know if they are getting up to temp.

There are a couple of things that can cause this problem, it could also as I mentioned, just be a bad temp sensor.

Please let me know what you find, so I can tell you what part needs to be replaced;-)

Thank you
