Amana oven won't heat properly
Model Number: AOES3030ww Brand:

The broiler element works fine. I set it at 400, it heats to 400 and my tester in the oven says it's accurate. The element is below the box, so it's hard to tell what it's doing. My guess is it works sporadically because at one point the broiler element was cranked in order to maintain the 400 degrees.
I tested the element and each side was getting 120v. I replaced the element but no change. I assume that since juice is getting to the element, the relay is working. And since the oven can keep the temp, it appears that the thermostat is working.
So the lower element is heating either some or none of the time.
Three years ago, I replaced the thermostat, lower element, and a main board.
