Question about Magic Chef CER3540 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Malfunction!!!!!!!!! This past weekend I was ceaning out my oven and I thought for some reason that I could disconnect the grill part if the oven that warms it and I unscrewed the right side and pulled softly- when I did that I heard a light poof noise- no flames or sparks- but right then at that moment I thought that it was the best time to leave it alone. I'm thinking it's a fuse and I would appreciate your help in this before I have someone come out. Thank you very much!!!!!

That poof that you heard was a shorted wire. More than likely you would not see it, but there is wires behind it.I would say you tripped a breaker or blew a fuse. Did you put the screw back in it that hold it in. If not turn off breaker before you do. Do you have breakers or fuses.

Hi Tom. Salesmen love the phrase 'self-clean'. As a Tech I came to know this function as 'self-destruct'. The entire oven locks down so that owners cannot release air inside the oven that reaches 700-800 degrees during this 3hr. cycle. The control board routes max current through its circuits for most of this time, and over repeated cycles, causes eventual failure in almost all boards. Symptoms and errors vary- consistent with multiple failures of either resistors at power junctions, or internal processor errors that accompany heat related damage. FIRST- disconnect power and check resistance for elements- broil/bake/conv. If all have resistance and are not OPEN, control is probably bad. Control part # AP4422522 Whirlpool available for $157.52 or so thru local or on line parts. Installation is not difficult......power Off..... Advice- drip pans, aluminum foil, if boil over is possible---protect from contact with bottom of oven. Avoid using 'self-clean' by preventing or minimizing spills. Hope this helps- Thanks- ED

Neff U1420 oven gets hot then cools.


there are is an ignitor nest to the oven burner. that part gets red hot when you turn the oven on, but when starts to go bad it takes longer and longer time to open the safety valve that supplies gas to the burner. or i can turn on but it will not stay on it go es of again. the ignitor needs to be replace.

\do you have the electrical connection diagram for the top oven grill element for a Belling D841 cooker?


Generally, grill elements have only two connections and they go to the main power switch controlling the oven.  Usually, there is a diagram pasted on the rear panel of ovens or just inside the control panel cover.  If you think the element is bad, remove it and test it with an ohm meter.  If it is 'open' replace it.  If it is not physically damaged or shows an ohm reading, it is likely good.
If the question is the connections, cut the power and visually inspect then trace the switch with the diagram.  Look for corroded contacts where the element is plugged in.  If the unit uses a relay...electronics...those may and do fail.  Sometimes, you can get a similar replacement unit without getting a circuit board or find a rebuilder.

Top oven grill element


Hey there, Shouldn't be too difficult. Just two nuts to remove. If unsure about reconnecting wiring, draw yourself a little diagram clearly indicating the colours. Let me know if you are having further problems.
