Replacement Element does not work

I checked it with a meter. I have 110 Volts to ground but not 220 accross the leads. The element has 24 ohms. What do you think the problem may be?

If it is a double circuit element, then you will only get 110 vlolts across one circuit, and 220 volts across the other circuit..
If however it is a single circuit element, and you are only getting 110 volts, then I would suggest that you have a high resistance somewhere that is stoping it from getting 220 volts.
Hook the element directly to a 220volt supply and check voltage .
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Whirlpool built in electric oven bake (bottom)heating element does not heat up only tot heats when in bake mode


CHECK FOR CRACKS IN THE BAKE ELEMENT. IF THE UNIT IS NOT HEATING THE BOTTOM, BUT THE TOP IS STILL HEATING, YOU MORE THAN LIKELY HAVE TO REPLACE THE ELEMENT. THIS IS A 220 VOLT OVEN WITH 110 VOLTS ALWAYS GOING TO THIS ELEMENT, SO TURNING OF THE BREAKER IS VITAL FOR SAFETY PURPOSES. WITH AN OHM METER, UNINSTALL THE ELEMENT AND CHECK BOTH WIRE CONNECTIONS FOR OHMS. YOU SHOULD GET SOME KIND OF READING BETWEEN 10 OHMS AND 500 OHMS. IF YOU'RE NOT AT LEAST GETTING A SOLID READING, REPLACE THIS ELEMENT.

Oven baking element failed, broiler element worked fine. I replaced the heating element and for 1 meal it worked fine. Now neither element works and the light on the panel does not go on. The stove works...


IF you have the correct amount of 220 volts power at the terminal block.then the only thing left is the main control board has failed and needs to be replaced.

Everything works but the bake element, which I replaced and still no dice??


ck the old element with a ohm meter and if it's good the element was not the problem . then ck the wiring for good connections. as when you installed the new one i am sure you did. make sure you have 220 volts / at the terminal block ( if one side of the power is not working the no heat from element .. hope this may have helped . mm

Oven will not pre heat


Hello,

Simple to test a bake element or range top burner element.

First, visually see if the element has molten gobs on the tubular-looking element, and/or is cracked. It will be obvious.

And if you do not see anything obvious, you should still test the element with a voltmeter. Many elements are set up so you can unscrew a screw where the element gets attached at the inside rear of the oven, and then pull the element into the stove a couple inches, enough to unhook the wires and then be able to put a voltmeter tester on each end of the element (set to the OHMS setting) to see if the element has continuity.

IF the element is good, then...

...You can also then make sure the wires are not contacting metal(BE SURE OF THIS),... and then plug the stove back in and test the wires to see if you have 220 volts. If not see, which of the two wires has 110. Then if you know which one does not have the 110, then you UNPLUG THE STOVE again and then access the rear of the stove and trace that dead wire from the element plug-in back in the range. You will physically be able to trace that wire.

When working with 220 elements in anything...please realize that usually one leg wire of the 220 volts (in other words, 110 volts) is always 'hot' even though the switch to it is off!! Always remember that!

Bake at low temp. Heating element vs control board


you need a meter that checks voltage (220) and continuity. turn off breaker remove screws that hold element in carefully pull it out just enuff to remove wires.remove wires check for continuity on element if there element is good. tape the leads to the wires turn on breaker, turn on oven if no 220 volts bad board or broken wire.

Double oven... top works great, bottom has power but will not heat. No codes showing. Have had ohm meter on it and all is functional to elements. GE Profile model # JKP56BOA1BB, older model... maybe 1999.


Do you have 220 volts to the element. If you do then you have a bad element. If you don't then it is usually your erc (electronic range control) or your oven sensor. You need to test your oven sensor for the proper ohms, (should be on your wiring schematic), replace the sensor if you don't have the right ohms rating. You can also compare the upper oven sensor rating with the lower oven sensor rating. If your sensor is good then you need to check if your erc is sending 220 volts down to the lower oven element. Again you need to look at your wiring schematic(usually found in a sleeve behind the oven control panel), to determine which terminals to test. As always you need to be sure that you know what you are doing when you are working with live voltage. If you don't know how to work on live electical products you need to call a technician. It can be very dangerous. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Grill element not heatingelement has been checked and is ok


1. remove element, check the voltage should be about 220 volts across the wires.(warning this can KILL YOU have somebody that knows what they are doing check it) remember to turn on at knob when ready and turn off too!
2. if no voltage, check breaker, or check it first, some may have a 110 curcuit for lights and a 220 for elements
3. if voltage is there the element may still be bad, if it was checked with a ohm meter, reading may have been bad, but looked OK.
4. If other elements work I would check switch next with the volt meter not ohm. incoming and out voltage.
Thermostat may have went bad.
5. replace as needed.

Radiant heating elements


Check the element with an OHM meter.

This is not rocket science and an OHM meter can be used for many things. Any good appliance parts place, even Wal-Mart will have a meter which can be set to test AC/DC, OHM's etc. Set the meter on OHM setting and touch the two leads on the meter together, you will see the meter arm move. This is simply a test for continuity. Now take the element out of the Range, touch one lead to one end of the element and the other lead to the other end. If you do not get any reading then there is a break inside the element and must be replaced. If you get any reading at all then the element is good and the eye switch must be replaced.

There are some parts which require knowing how many OHM's but in this case you just need to check for a break inside the element (continuity).

You can check an extension cord this way or set it on the volts setting and check batteries. all kinds of fun.

Oven only reaches temp of 220 degrees.


meter the electric-220 metering the positives...110 metering 1 positive & ground at a time...Ohm the element if shows open(10 dollar multimeter doesn't move) then is bad.Can be reached from the back just above where the power attaches,for safety disconect the power

Oven not working


chances are that the element is bad but with out more info on like what kind of thermostat you have if digital display if any codes like f-1 show this would be first thing i look at check power at element 220 volts should be at element if so element is bad (replace) is not you need to find the wiring diagram and follow it back and check voltage and ohms you will need a volt ohm meter for this.
good luck
