My electric stove is not hearing up


Hi anonymous.

The particulars will help with diagnosis:
  1. Is everything dead - no oven light, no lights from dials, no heat from any burners, or from the oven elements? In this case, it's highly unlikely they all burned out at once. Check the breaker for you stove in your breaker panel. It should be labeled in the panel cover, but will likely be a large double-sized breaker with a rating of 30-to-50 Amps. If it's tripped, try resetting it. if it trips again, leave it be. If you can access where the unit plugs into the wall, make sure it's plugged in all the way. Be careful not to touch the prongs - it's three phase power and can zap you pretty bad.
  2. If the wall power and breaker are OK, it could be that one of the connection wires to the plug is broken or disconnected. unless you're a savvy DIY person with electrical, this should be left to an electrician - you need to make sure it's the right kind of plug, the right wire gauge, and the right hook-ups of wires to lugs, or you can start fires.
  3. If it's just a single burner, then either the burner could be burned out or disconnected, or the dial could be broken or damaged. Most electric burners will flip up for cleaning. remove the reflector/catch pan underneath. you should be able to pull the burner a short way out of the stovetop. There are likely either heavy spade clip connectors, or bolt-down lugs at the base. make sure that the corresponding wire clips or bare wire loops are connected to both ends of the element. If not, you can likely strip the wire and either re-attach, or crimp on a new connector and re-attach. Be very sure that the power is not on to the burner before doing this.
  4. While you have the burner out, you can also check it, end to end, with a volt-meter. if you get an open circuit, or a very low voltage reading, then the element path is broken/burned out, or shorted. You're likely best off getting a new element, unless there is some obvious thing like a bit of metal shorting across the inputs.
  5. If the burner and connections look OK, you can next go test if the settings knob is working. The shaft might have broken leaving it off regardless of the knob position, or the wires to the knob may be broken, giving you no power in any position. Access to the back of the knob will vary with make and model.
I hope this is of some help.

Can I remove the burner that is burned out and only use 3 burners to cook with, will this stop the popping & tripping the breaker?


You should do little more homework.. Yes you can remove the burner if it's the culprit and causes a short and tripping the breakers. If still trips after you remove it you should look into replacing the harness for that burner.

The clicking that normally just goes to start my burners started clicking all by it self and will not stop unless I unplug it. It is all the burners at the same time. They just keep on with the tick,...


Hello,

If one of your burner heating elements works only intermittently/all works intermittently, it's probably because of worn or bad contacts in the receptacle that the element plugs into. On most electric ranges, you can remove the element by lifting it up several inches and firmly pulling it away from its attachment (receptacle). Read your owner's manual to learn the correct technique for your range. If, after removing the element, you see that the ends of the element that were plugged in are pitted, corroded, burned, scarred, or rusted, replace both the element and the receptacle.

Take care.

Heating element stays on when turned off


The thermostat (that is the dial that you turn to energize the heating elements) is the only thing that connects power to and disconnects power from the heating element. It is bad.

You can unplug the unit and remove the thermostat. Take it to a parts supplier and get a new one and install it. Your problem will go away.

Profile stovetop spark element will not stop firing all 4 burners are sparking and will not stop unless I unplug the unit


You have a bad spark switch on one of your burner switches.
Remove the control panel to access the switches and burner stems. Carefully remove one wire at a time from each switch. When the sparking stops,that will be the bad switch. Replace the bad spark switch.

Replacement Range element not heating


red light means power is on in the wires. maybe the plug is very dirty, wire disconnected. if you mesured power at the connector, there is no reason a good burner would not work unless that when plugged in its not getting a good contact

Kenmore glass top range left front large burner out


check the burner socket, it is likely that contact is being lost where the burner connects to the hardwired portion of the system (the socket). It is not unusual for the socket to "burn up" when there is a poor connection to the burner resulting in the burner being replaced and the new burner not working or working intermittently.

Whirlpool R365 Large Burners won't work


The problem could likely be in the sockets that the elements plug in to. Over time, they lose tension and deteriorate. The replacement sockets are relatively cheap and easy to replace. If the connection ends of the elements are still in good shape, there is really no reason to replace the element.

check your polarity at your outlet polatiry very important to theese re-ignition spark module, next with an old nail file)emory cloth clean the tops of the electrodes, after a whitle of continous sparking they tend to build up w/ carbon making it unable to detect flame thus continous spark
