After self cleaning, Range trips circuit breaker when using convection

I've had the range for two years and it's worked perfectly. After just recently running the self-cleaning for the first time, I now cannot use the convection function without tripping the circuit breaker of the circuit it's on. All the other functions work fine without tripping the switch; I can cook on the burners and even bake without convection. Can anyone help me?

Self cleaning ovens use super hot seting to bake the oven clean and it sounds like it melted a wire and it is shorting out the oven on that setting. look at the wires you can see or easy to remove panels

First check the breakers at your house's breaker box. A tripped breaker will be a little bit away from on. Push it all the way off, and then back on. If it trips again, call an electrician.

Range starts beeping out of the blue. Cannot turn off or reset. Have to shut off breaker to range. I have had entire module replaced three times.

Hello Hugh Casper - If you have already try resetting the range by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off and beeping continues then contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may be experiencing a wiring failure, communication error with the EOC or the EOC itself is not working correctly.

Just installed Fridg. Gallery convection range

The PF code stands for "Power Failure". This code will appear whenever the power is disrupted to the range. Pressing the cancel button on the touch panel should clear this code. Now it sounds like there is either an electrical short on the range or a problem with your GFCI electrical outlet/breaker. There is an internal fuse that might have burned out inside the range to prevent further electrical damage or the ERC/touch panel may have shorted out. The problem is if you start tinkering with the range and it is brand new then you might void the factory warranty by trying to repair it yourself. I would leave it unplugged and call the manufacturer or the place that you purchased it from and describe your problem. There might be a recall on that model range or a problem that they are aware of. You also might want to try plugging a couple other appliances into the SAME electrical outlet plug that you used for the range and see if the breaker/GFCI trips. If it does then the problem might be with the electrical plug or circuit. A bad plug or circuit can cause damage to an appliance(like the range) so be careful with any other appliances you use to test the outlet because they could be damaged also if the circuit or plug is bad.

We self cleaned our Bosch oven yesterday. Now the

I would check the following because during a self cleaning cycle a oven gets very hot and draws alot of power and this could of happened

Fuse/circuit breaker
Check to see if power is getting to the range/oven. Does anything turn on--even a light? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Main wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the range/oven, gets burned and so breaks the connection. Then you may have to replace the power cord to the range/oven, and the terminal block that the wire is attached to.

Unplug the range and try to reset breaker. If it holds, you have a shorted element or some kind of fault in the range. If it won't hold in, change breaker

GE XL44 Broiler/Self Clean Trips GFI

This should be a 220 volt appliance so I'm trying to figure how this was connected to a GFI. Does it have a second connection to power the controls?

Most GFI uints I have seen are not rated for large amounts of power consumption. I used to throw the one in my bathroom if I was running the electric heater and the wife fired up the hair dryer.

I'm wondering if this indeed does require the additional 110 connection then it sould be pulling heavy current from it to aid in the cleaning process. I've never seen a stove that needed the extra. My old electric range had only the 220 as well as my elders.

So if that is the case then you should not be running that through the GFI outlet because of the heavy drain will heat the breaker in the GFI and cause it to trip. Breakers actually work very similar to how the old fuses work. Heat causes the switch to throw. GFI units have a lower tolerance (designed to detect shorts quicker to save your life) and trip quicker than breakers do.
