HOOKING UP STOVE TO POWER OUTLET IN HOUSE....

I JUST GOT THIS STOVE AS A HAND ME DOWN FROM MY FATHER. HE SAYS IT WORKS FINE AND APPEARS TO BE IN GOOD WORKING CONDITION. BUT WHAT I NOTICE IS THAT IT DOEST HAVE A POWER SUPPLY PLUG ON IT LIKE MOST STOVES. I DONT SEE WHERE ONE WOULD BE LOCATED EITHER. I DID NOTICE IN THE BACK OF THE STOVE, RIGHT AT THE TOP IN THE MIDDLE, WHERE 4 OR 5 WIRES WITH CONNECTORS TO THEM OR SOMETHING. AM I SUPPOSE TO CONNECT STOVE TO POWER WITH THOSE? IS SOMETHING MISSING? ARE THE WIRE ALREADY SUPPOSE TO BE A CERTAIN WAY IN A HOUSE TO CONNECT THIS TYPE OF STOVE? HELP PLEASE. THANKS C. KING

Go to Home Depot/Lowe's. Buy you a STOVE power cord. Hook red to red, white to white, etc.

You need to take the back of.down the bottom should be power terminals.positive ,earth and negative,earth is green,negative is black or blue.the earth is to be puy on thee screw.if you undo a screw then the wires will clamp in when screwed back.a stove should be hard wired to the house if you use a power leadto a power point you can not use all of the stoves functions ,it will trip the fuses

Electrical power is off on my Hotpoint 183D6027G069, even though power is on for all other appliances and all circuit breakers checked normal.


I'm guessing this is a gas / propane stove - so the power is likely 120v if in N. America. If this is the case, I would unplug the stove and plug it into another outlet. If none is close enough, you should be able to run an extension cord to determine if it is an outlet or stove problem.

The 120v is needed on gas stoves mostly for lights, electronics, clock, ignitors, etc. It is not for heating / cook of foods so a decent cord should be fine to use. If it still refuses to function on a known to be good outlet, the power outage you had has caused a problem in the stove and will likely require service.

Circuit breaker is fine but still no power on one bedroom. PG&E said it might be a bad plug/outlet.


Turn off the circuit breaker and locate the plugs that are on that circuit. There is a good chance that the problem is between the closest working and faulty outlet. Starting with what appears to be the last working outlet on the circuit, check that all the wires are secure in all the fixtures and outlets.
If that does not fix the problem, a varmint may have chewed through a wire inside the wall. If you do not have experience with home wiring, you should get an electrician.

YKGST307 SUPERBA range works very well, except when regular washing machine starts working downstairs. Then stove panel starts to beep for 5-20 min ( till i unplug it from electrical outlet) indicating F2...


if the stove works fine until something else is turned on,it sounds like you have an electrical problem with the house.run a seperate line for the stove from the breaker box,it sounds like you have to many things running off of that one circuit

Dryer is 2 years old. Worked fine until we moved to a new house and could not hook it up. 1 year later I finally had the electric problem fixed and hooked the dryer up No Heat. Dryer turns on but NO Heat.


is the outlet 3 or 4 prongs?. voltage check the outlet for propper voltage. check connection at dryer power cord. 2 of the wires power the motor circuitry(120vac) the other 2 the heating element. you may have a loose connection in outlet,switch wires or bad-half trip breaker. if not,,,, there's a dryer problem, call us again with update please. good luck to you.

Phillips dvr won't power up. Lost power at house


Try hooking it up to another (working) electrical outlet. If that doesn't work, there's several possible problems.

The most likely is that the box was fried when a larger-than-usual current traveled down the line (or even down the coax if lightning struck and your system isn't adequately grounded); the electrical outlet is either pushing too much or too little power; or your house's ground polarity is reversed.

More than likely your box is bad. If you don't know very much about electrical systems, don't go messing with your ground or any outlets without a wall plate.

Rockwood tent trailer (model 2318G) has no power


I have the same trailer and had the same problem. The trailer has a button that shuts off all power when the swing down stove and sink are folded down (this prevents anything from turning on when the trailer is folded down). The button is red and one of the wires came off the terminal.Once I hooked the wire back up everything worked fine.The button and is visible as soon as you fold down the sink and stove. The funny thing is that there is no mention of it in any of the literature that comes with the trailer

Amana oven and broiler won't fire


Check your stove breakers first. Click them off, leave them off for a minute and put the breaker back on. It sounds like you are having a power supply problem. Make sure to check your potlet and power chord as well.

Control Panel not working


I had the same problem with my dishwasher. I have model number kudso2frss4. My husband and Father-in-law checked all the electrical and they were all fine. They found that the high-limit tub thermostat was bad. They bypassed it with a wire until the part comes in. It is working great now. Hope it helps good luck

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


I start my computer and turn it on, and everything looks fine for about 1/4 of a second and then it goes black while leaving the power light green. I can only see the screen again after turning it off and on, but that's only for another 1/4 second. What's up?
I got my rosewill flatscreen as a hand me down from my father. I've had it for several years now. Was working fine until a month ago. When I turn the computer on the screen goes black after 1/4 of a saecond. I have to turn it off and on anywhere from 10 to 20 times before it stays on. I have checked all plugs to the computer and outlets. I have absolutely no idea whats causing this.
