Heat turns off after preheating on electrolux icon double wall ov

We have had our 30" electrolux icon double wall oven for almost 2 years and have been happy with it. However, we are now having a problem where once the ovens preheat they turn off (don't maintain temperature) even though the display still shows the desired temperature. This is happening with both the upper and lower ovens.

Also, the upper oven is taking longer to preheat while the lower oven seems to preheat as normal.

I know some people have had trouble with these ovens after running a self cleaning cycle, but it has been over 6 months since we have last done this with our upper oven. Thus, this shouldn't be the problem.

Your preheat is done mostly with the Broil element. It sounds like your bake elements are not turning on after the preheat is finished.

RE: Heat turns off after preheating on electrolux icon double wal

That makes sense. Do you have any thoughts as to what might be failing if the bake elements aren't turning on after the preheat? Since it is happening to both the upper and lower units it sounds like it may involve something at top end of the oven (control panel or a switch or something like this). Any thoughts or recommendations on how to proceed? It sounds like I may need to get a repair person out here...
Thank you for you input.
