First thing is to check you r circuit breaker,is it an electric range ??? or a gas stove with electronic iginiton???, if its a full electric range then youll have a double breaker powering your unit, and its possible that one of the breakers tripped, allowing only half power to the unit.if its a gas with electronic igniton then slightly different matter and then i would ask of the top elemnts will light with match and perhaps theres an issue with the electronic spark switch

How come the burners on my general electric stove


Whenever I replace a block, it doesn't hurt to file or sand the male contacts on the surface burner. Be safe.

I have a Jenn-Air JES9900 range and the right front burner is not working but the hot indicator light remains on. Is this just a switch that needs to be replaced?


make this test and fix it. God bless you

Surface Element Switch

If the surface element won't work, and there is another element of the same size on the stove, try switching the elements. If it still won't work, the surface element switch is probably defective. The surface element switch can't be tested or repaired, it will have to be replaced.

Surface Element Board

If a surface element won't work the surface element board might be defective. Each burner is switched on and off with the help of a relay on the surface element board. If one or more relays has failed the surface element won't work. If two or more burners fail at the same time, this is likely the problem. If only one surface element won't work and the element itself checks out to be good, the surface element board might be defective.

Coil Surface Element

If the surface element won't work, the coil surface element might be burned out. Most coil surface elements can be pulled out of their socket and checked with an Ohm meter for continuity. If the surface element won't work, check to see if there is any visible damage to the coils. Also, check to be sure the element is pushed all the way into the socket.

Radiant Surface Element

The most common cause when the surface element won't work is the radiant surface element itself. The radiant surface element - or heating element - can burn out similar to a light bulb. If the surface element won't work and it doesn't have continuity, it will need to be replaced. The radiant surface element is not repairable.

Solid Surface Element

If the surface element won't work, and the stove has the solid surface element type of heat, it's likely that the solid surface element itself has burned out. The solid surface element works very similarly to other surface elements - inside there is a heating element that glows when electricity is applied to it. As it gets hotter, the heat is transferred to the solid surface element

Element Receptacle and Wire Kit

If a surface element won't work, there may be a problem in the element receptacle. The surface element plugs onto a terminal block type receptacle. Over time the terminals in the receptacle can have a bad connection and overheat. Look at the receptacle contacts with a flashlight. If the terminals look burnt you will need to replace the element receptacle. also make sure the element prongs are clean and not burnt. If the prongs are burnt bad the element will need to be replaced also.

Loose or Burnt Wire Connection

If surface element won't work, there might be a burnt wire supplying power to the surface element. Sometimes the wire supplying power to the element burns out right near the element itself. Check for this by just looking at the wires leading to the element. If they're burned out it is usually easy to spot.


Incoming Power Problem

Although not as common, if the surface element won't work it is possible that the appliance is not receiving proper voltage. Electric ranges require 220 volts of alternating current. If for some reason the appliance is receiving significantly less, the surface element won't work. Check for proper voltage using a volt meter at the socket where the appliance plugs in.

Jenn-air electric down draft stove has power to the controlls but the power to the elements is not working on the stove and the oven. is there a fuse? What is my problem?


The electrical connections are as follows: L1 goes to one of the 120 VAC hot lines. N goes to neutral. L2 goes to the other 120 VAC hot line. You may have a separate ground wire (required on all new installations) connected to the stove frame. L1 + L2 = 240 VAC.

Your controls are connected to L1 and neutral. The wiring here is good. The heater elements are connected to L1 and L2 with no connection to neutral. Either the L2 line is open, or the L1 connection that provides power to the heaters is open (probably a different wire than the one providing power to the controls). L2 is the most probable culprit, and the problem could be the wall socket, the stove cord, or a bad connection inside the stove. (I recently fixed a case like this - both the socket and the plug on the cord were burned out.)

Admiral wont heat


Your breaker in the breaker box has a double pole breaker for the stove one breaker is shot so you still have 120volts which runs the lights 240volts for the elements.Turn main power off and replace the breaker. To verify for sure pull the stove out and unplug it check power at the plug you need 240volts at the plug. If i dont have a plug and wired straight in disconnect the wires and check the wires.

Whirlpool R365 Large Burners won't work


The problem could likely be in the sockets that the elements plug in to. Over time, they lose tension and deteriorate. The replacement sockets are relatively cheap and easy to replace. If the connection ends of the elements are still in good shape, there is really no reason to replace the element.

One of the elements is not working.


As you didn't give anything specific, when most electric stoves have 1 burner out, its the socket that the element plugs into. Remove the element and look at the socket that it plugs into. It will look burnt. Also look at the element for any rupture in the metal shield, plug it into another place to see if it works, is an easy way to check the element. The replacement parts are relatively inexpensive, and most hardware stores carry them.
