heating element not generating heat using SS Heat Generation Rate

I have a very simplified model of an oven to try to understand the heat source tools. I have created an SS Heat Generation Rate for my input data with the rate at 5250 Btu/h but, when I create a cut plot only the top element generated some heat. See below of the cut plot results. What have missed when defining this simulation or should I try to define the top and bottom elements as separate heat sources? Is there a certain type of test I should run? I currently defined the test as an internal test see general setting screenshot for details. Let me know if I need to provide more information or to clarify anything.
