Elements not working, have power on both legs of 220. Have replace the elements. Lights and fans work. No heat.

    I intending to indicate that both legs of the 220 at the box was live and that the breakers didn't trip. I have a new lower element. Have power to the light, fans but none to the elements. Its still possible, of course, that there is a loss in the neutral. The other problem is that this is a built in oven and I cannot. Its difficult to get to the wiring without pulling the whole oven. Being alone this is almost impossible. Oven is kinda heavy.



    Would appreciate any other suggestions. All is appreciated.

    Yes, I know I will have to pull the oven. Not happy about that thought. Its too heavy for one person. However. I have not looks to see if I have an open circuit on the stat. Selector could be faulty. I will have to pull unit to determine if connection box is ok and not burnt.



    Thank you for the suggestions. Everyone helps. I am thinking about pulling a couple of the circuit boards and replacing them. There are a total of 4. It would not be a big chore except for pulling the oven.



    Many thanks.

I think you maen that you are seeing 220v on both terminals of the element and this would mean straight away that the element is ok
the problem is that neutral is not present
take care doing this.
remove wires from both sides of element. check which wire is live and the other should be neutral. trace the neutral wire and see if you can find a break or disconnection. one possibility is that neutral is routed via an overheat stat and this has gone open circuit

What's wrong and how do I fix it?


The circuit breaker outside in the power panel for the stove has a bad breaker. It will be two breakers with their handles joined together by a pin so if one tripe it takes the other so 220 V is no longer present. When one, but not the other trips you only have 110 V. That's why the lights and clock still work but no heating elements.

Power Cord
If the power cord fails you still may have the control portion working but no bake or some other functions. The reason this happens is the oven takes in 220 volts then splits that to 2 110 lines. Some for the controls, lights, bake and broils elements, and stove top. If your cord has failed on one half of the 220 line or the terminal block were the wires are connected may have melted or failed. You may need to replace the cord and terminal block.

Heating Element
This is usually the problem. To Check this first turn oven on to a bake setting,say @350, check to see if element glows, if not shut oven off. If it is warm but does not glow it is getting power and the element needs to be replaced. If it does not get warm remove the element and check to see if it is getting power if it does get power replace the element. No power it is the main control that has failed. Check element for continuity, if none replace.

Temperature Sensor
This is a long thin tube like part located usually in the top rear of the oven. It is held in by 2 screws. This can easily be removed by removing the 2 screws and carefully pulling it out. Usually there will be wires connected and insulation so you will need to work it out. Then unplug the connector and check with an ohmeter. It Should have around 1000-1100 ohms if not replace the sensor. Some will have a thin capillary tube attached in this case the problem will be in the control attached to this tube.

Main Control
This can cause your oven not to heat. Sometimes the oven relay gets burned out, when this happens the control is unable to send power to the bake element. There will usually be separate relays for bake and broil if you have 2 different elements. If your heating element gets no power replace the control. If your control does not respond at all check to if youhave power entering the control. If you do and it does not respond replace the control. No power to the control Check or replace the power cord.

Oven does not heat, setting oven temp the cleaner latch lights up


Does the Broiler Work? Make sure you have 220 Volts to the Oven. Take the 220 breaker and push if all the way off and then snap it back to the On position. If the Broiler works and the bottom elements doesn't get hot you have a element out. They are not to hard to change. Shut power off to oven and take the screw out at the back in the middle of the element and the elements pulls out and then unhook the wires and replace with a new one. If you have a volt meter you can OHM out the heating element. You should get a buzzing noise if it is good. The other part of the equation is the temperature control that could be bad so use your Volt Meter to do some minor checks before you start replacing parts. Hope this Helps!

Kenmore 790 issue


Since you mentioned replacing a heating coil, I'm assuming this to be an ELECTRIC RANGE vice a gas range.

It sounds like you may be missing part of the input voltage at the wall receptacle. You should be reading 220-240VAC across the two hot terminals (left and right slots). Some homes are wired with two separate breakers to make up the 220 service that feeds your appliance. If this is the case, make sure one of the breakers is not tripped.

Or, you may have a possible bad power cord. With the unit unplugged, check the continuity of the power cord from end to end to make sure the wires are not broken.

The clock assembly functions off of a 110-120VAC source which is tapped off the input voltage. All the elements all use 220. If one of the input legs is missing, the clock will still function, but none of the elements will work. Please check and get back to me if this isn't the problem. I hope this helps you.

Please confirm if the model number is correct as well.

Oven and burners will not heat up


have you checked your fuse/breaker panel for 120/240 volts and again at unit plug,sounds like you lost one leg of the 240volts and you only have 120volts and if its on the clock and timer side they will still work,but need 240 to heat elements fully

Fridgedaire oven element replaced and still no cookies?


If the surface elements work your ERC is bad.(clock).
If the surface elements do not work check the circuit for 220 volts.

Frigidaire electric range fef336 heating elements not heating


Range does not heat (lights and timer do not operate).
This would indicate the range is not receiving the required 220 volts. Check house hold breakers or fuses, open wiring between the terminal block and the components, and the power cord.

GE range - oven stopped working after cleaning


If you bent the bottom element out list out of the way, you may have broken the actual heating element inside of the metal sheath. Or, it could have shorted to ground.
After tinkering with it more, you might have caused another short, and now both legs of 220 VAC have either a blown fuse or tripped breaker.

Reply what you find is the sondition, and I will help you troubleshoot more.

New Heating Element; Has Power But Not Heating Up


Let's go over a few things: 
  • Your unit uses 220 volts to provide heating.  Some elements are wired to one of the two 'legs' of the 220 giving you 'low'.  High uses 220
220 consists of three wires...two 'hot' (red and black) and a neutral which is white.  Neutral to hot will give you 110...hot to hot 220.  Measure accordingly and use care!  Neutral and the frame of the stove are effectively the same terminal...for safety.
  • You say some of the wires are burnt or a fuse is blown.  They need to be replaced with proper wire...not just any kind.  There is high temp insulated wire available from many ACE and other home stores or parts shops.  It needs to be thick enough, too.  Make all connections carefully and fully onto clean terminals.  Tighten clockwise.
  • Check the voltage coming to the element on various settings as above.  If you only get 110/120, you have an open supply issue which needs to be found.
Look for: loose wires, corrosion, burned insulation to ground.
