Do you have a 50 amp double pole breaker for the stove ! it should be. if yes and it still blows, there may be a cord problem and it needs replaced.

Why doesn't my stove top and oven heat up


Check your circuit breakers in the power panel for a bad breaker. The breaker has a pin connecting both handles One breaker can trip without tripping the other. This condition will only allow 115 volts to operate the controls and light bulbs but will not power the heating elements.

My amana gas range just tripped the breaker and now the oven light will not turn off and it keeps tripping the breaker every couple tries. It is running of a 20 amp breaker so it should be getting enough...


Hello,
One possibility is that the circuit breaker has weakened and tripping intermentently for no real reason. To see if that is the case the oven could be plugged into a outlet on a different breaker using a extension cord.
Another potential cause is that any one of the wires in the range has became bare and lost its insulation and touching a peice of metal, shorting out

Good luck in figuring out what is wrong,
Gene

My es300 electric range is tripping the breaker switch when I have more than one top element on and the oven. A few months ago the breaker switch started to trip when we had more than two elements on top...


Hello Happydude,

I understand that you are having a problem with your electric range. You state that as you turn more elements on the stovee on (ie. the burners and oven) the breaker will trip. Have you had any service done to the range before the problem started occuring?

This sounds like you have a problem with your breaker. As a breaker is tripped it will get weak as many times as your breaker has tripped I would replace it. You also need to verify that you are using atleast a 50 amp breaker. You will need to purchase the same type of breaker as you have (ie. Cuttler Hammer, GE, Square D, etc.). You will need a two pole 50 amp breaker. Follow the below dirrections to change the breaker.

1. Turn off the main breaker.
2. Verify that all electicity is off by checking electric in the house of building (everything should be off, not working)
3. Remove cover panel screws
4.. Lossen the screws on the two wires that are attached to the breaker
5. Remove the wires
6. Remove the breaker
7. Install the new breaker
8. Insert one wire under each screw
9. Reinstall cover panel
10. Turn main breaker on
11. Turn on oven breaker

Once the oven breaker is on check to see if all elements and oven will work at the same time. If the breaker trips. We will have to walk thru some more trouble shooting steps. However, I do believe that this will solve your problem.

Thank you for chossing FixYa.com please post any other questions that you may have about you appliances

Whenever i switch it on at the mains breaker trips


The electric is hooked up wrong. Sounds like ypou have a leg of power hooked up to ground. Check to see if you have single, or three pase at the outlet, and the oven is the same. If the breaker is a 3 wide the power is 3 phase. If you hook up an oen to 3phase that is only single phase, you are connecting one leg of power to ground. The breaker will trip every time you use it.Look on the tag on the oven, it will say 1ph, or 3ph. If outlet has 3 slots, and the oven is 1ph it is hooked up to incorrect voltage. Contact me for clarification if needed

Circut Breaker Trips


If the fault were with the product, the breaker would trip right away. You have either a poor electrical connection (power supply) or a weak or undersized circuit breaker. Free standing ranges usually use a 50 amp double pole breaker. Check electrical connections at breaker, range recepticle, and power cord to range to make sure all are tight. (obviously, have breaker off when making these checks)

Problem with electric oven


Either your fuse holder/breaker has a bad connection and has a voltage drop tripping your power  or  your heating element is shorting to it's outer jacket which is grounded.  Check your heating elements carefully for wear and disconnect that element and see if it trips still.

Everything quit at once.


This is a very strange one, and you don't say how old this unit is or how long you have had problems with it, but most likely you have a poor electrical connection. (Assuming your 50 Amp breaker for your range did not trip and you have power to everything else in your home) Turn the breaker off and unplug the range. Remove the cover over the receptacle you just pulled the plug from and check all the electrical connections. If all OK, check the electrical connections where the cord attaches to the range. If still OK, inspect additional range and household wiring to range, including the connections right on the circuit breaker
