Have you checked the oven fuse, there should be one on the stove. To check the element power, remove the element from the back where its attached to the stove Remove the element from the wires (Skip this step if you are absolutely sure the element is not working). Attach your meter clips to the 2 wires (meter set set to at least 250Vac), place a piece of cardboard under the screws and meter clips to isolate them from touching any metal parts of the oven. Turn the meter on, set the oven thermostat to 350, you should have at least 220Vac, if you do the power is fine. Test element for continuity, and for a possible short.
The heating element burned through -- it needs replacing. Turn off power to oven, remove two screws on heating element mount, pull heating element from wall of oven, remove two screws connecting electric leads to heating element. To install new element, reverse steps. Make sure screws connecting heating element to wires are very tight -- otherwise they will arc.
Most likely a bad element. Turn off the power to the oven. Remove the
a phillips screwdriver or 1/4 inch nut driver to remove the mounting
screws at the back of the oven cavity to remove the element. Carefully
pull the element out and remove the wires. Do not let the wires fall
back into the holes. Use a volt meter set for continuity. Touch
one meter lead to one terminal on the element. Touch the other meter
lead to the other terminal. If you get NO reading the element is bad. A
new element will correct your problem. If the element reads as good you
have a wiring problem or a bad control.
There are a few things to check for. Make sure the electrode ( the small metal piece that the spark comes off from ) is clean and the holes in the burner are clean, use a pin or paper clip to clean out the burner holes andNOTa tooth pick as these can break off and make things worse.Example of a burner. The next thing to check for are theignition switchesunder the surface control knobs, the switches can twist and break and keep the spark module on and the spark keeps "clicking" even when the burner is light. If every thing looks good, you may have a badsparkmodule, replace it. Sometimes cleaning can get moisture into the surface switches, try drying them with an hair dryer to see of this will help.Repair and checking tips for surface burners.
If one of the heating elements is not heating at all, then
replace the heating element. You can test the heating element reading
Ohms with a multimeter. You disconnect element and read impedance with
multimeter set at Rx1. If the element has no continuity, and the
circuit is open , then the element has blown. In that case you get no
heating at all on one of the elements. Check if either broiling or baking element is not
If heating is poor, then it is the sensor probe.
some case replacing the probe does not fix the problem. In that case it
is faulty control assembly. Usually it is the temp probe.
The oven element will not affect the top burners, Unless it tripped the breaker at the panel when the element burned it two. Is there power to the stove? The top burners have their own power and control separate.
If only one element does not work, then test heating element continuity using a multimeter. If oven does not bake or broil, then test temp
probe. If there is nothing wrong with elements and temp probe , then test wiring harness to
control panel and timer control board.
