    sorry, I mean the heat in the oven after use prevent the cook top (gas one) from being ignited. It looks like the gas pipe is blocked but when the oven is cold it is back to normal.

Heat expansion??? talking about the heat exhausting from the oven cavity affecting the lighting of the rear burners??? thats a pretty commmon issue, yo can try putting on the exhaust fan above your oven, and if that s not available id try calling the manufacture for a possible fix, i know some offer deflector kits or extensions for the exaust to compensate for this issue.

I turn on the stove and about a minute later it shakes the side of the house and lights. Heats well and works fine after doing this. It's a kenmore and about thirteen years old. What could be happening.


There could be expansion issues with the oven. When the oven heats up the sides or bottom could be flexing causing this. If it is a gas range with an oven igniter it could be the igniter is getting weak and the gas is not lighting right away and causes a small explosion when it does light. If it has an igniter look to see how bright it is. If it is orange in color it is probably the problem. They should glow a bright yellow. If the igniter has never been changed it could be the problem. Hope this helps.

I have Rheem model 41V50 leaking from the top...The top is a lid with screw....can I buy and replace the top ?


No.
Replace tank.
Buy 40 gallon from local Lowes and install yourself.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

Under thin metal shell is a welded steel tank, surrounded by insulation and then covered with painted metal shell. The shell is what you look at.
The inside steel tank is made to withstand high pressure expansion that comes with heating water.
The steel tank has rusted out.
Turn gas control valve to vacation, so pilot light stays on, and then only heat enough water as needed until you can replace tank.

Prevent next tank from rusting by replacing anode rod, and ground water pipes.

My buttom oven is not working but top is working


If it is a fan assisted oven, and the fan is working, then it is likely to be a faulty heating element.
This should be located behind a removeable cover at the rear of the oven compartment.
If the fan is not working as well, then could be a faulty thermostat, even without the element or fan not working, there should be an indicator light on to show that the power is on,
Also make sure the main oven is set for manual operation, and not set on auto, as this will prevent the main oven coming on if it is.

Stoves 720 EF Electric Double Oven Model No 059040415 -when you turn the grill knob there is no light and it doesn't do anything at all - the grill is not working. However, the element must be working as...


First things first. The oven element is totally separate to the grill element. The clock has to have a time set for either the top or bottom oven to work, whereas the grill will work without the clock being set.
The control knob for the top oven is the ONLY control that will turn the top oven lights on, the grill does not turn the lights on. ( If you want to watch your toast, you have to turn the top oven switch on to the first setting as well as operating the grill control).
To prevent the grill being operated with the door shut, there is a micro-switch on the door hinge that allows the grill to operate ONLY when the door is down. The grill control also does not illuminate unless the door is down. There are two options on the grill control - right or left. One way is the inner element only and the other is both inner and outer ones.
So if you have done all that and it still doesn't work, then the micro-switch could be faulty.
Best of luck

JGBC20BEHCT OVEN PROBLEM


can you hear a hissing sound? if your element isnt working it will need to be replaced as a saftey measure most ovens will not "pass gass" without a working element to prevent explosions, try wiggling the connnections to the element and make sure everything is tight and see if it will heat

Re:Electric Convection oven does not heat up. Convection fan works, light works.


It is probably and electrical service issue. If this is a North American unit, it uses two electrical circuits to provide power. You must find and reset the breakers and check that the wiring is operating as intended. Less likely: It could also be a manufacturing defect. DeLonghi uses screw compression connections on some products. Sometimes, they don't work well.

Elan 948 OVen doesn't heat and light designating heating does not go on.


we just had the same problem with the same oven. pull the oven out of the wall. on the top right side there is a fan. there is a safety switch that is activated by the fan blowing on it. a piece of insulation was preventing the switch from activating so the oven thought the fan was not running. remove the insulation and the oven comes back to life.
