Whenever I use the oven and my stove top is on, the stove blows my breaker. I have to reset my breaker in the breaker box and can not use my over.


Depends which breaker is tripping. If it is the micro circuit breaker it would suggest the circuit is overloaded or shorting and if it is the RCD it is likely to mean there is a current/voltage leak to ground and the appliance has a fault.

If you can use the oven OR the stove top but not both together the circuit is clearly overloaded or the MCB is faulty or of the wrong specification...

I can give no more advice without more details.

Model no. 790.97433800. Why does it trip breaker and shuts off after heating to correct temp?


Hi Patricia
Hey... the breaker has saved your life!
There can be a number of reasons for this type of fault.
The one that comes to mind for me is...
The element itself is "inside a metal sheath" which is grounded to the Earth connector in your AC Mains Box.
With heating and cooling many times an element can melt or burn through to the outside sheath. This causes a short circuit to earth which blows the circuit breaker. Thats why we ground appliances to earth.... for safety. Otherwise the whole body of the appliance would go live and give you ashock when you touch it and say "the sink" or "floor".
Generally it's pretty simply to turn off the power then lift the element up and pull it out of it's socket.
Take it to the appliance dealer and get a replacement.

Good luck

I get F2 at the end of the preheat cycle and when i press cancel it keeps beeping


Hi cinderelly,

The reason why you are having this problem with your Whirlpool is because F2 error coed means that oven temperature is too high. Here's what you can do to solve the problem:

1. Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

2. For SELF CLEAN models: check door lock operation.

3. Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit, not actual oven temperature.

You may contact Sears for the replacement part at 1-800-252-1698; M-F 6:30 AM-10:30 PM - Sat 7:00 AM-9:30 PM - Sun 7:30 AM-9:30 PM - All times Central. Just get your model number ready when you call.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Oven is "kicking" the circuit breaker, any ideas?


Is it kicking the breaker will all of the controls off? Or only when you turn on a certain one? Usually when an oven kicks a breaker there is a shorted heating element or.... a broken wire to one of the elements where the terminal got hot and the wire or terminal melted off and is now lying on the chassis somewhere. It could be on the stove top or either of the bake elements. The only way to find the short if it is NOT visible is to disconnect "one wire,k" element by element and read each wire to chassis ground. With the controls off none of the wires should read to chassis ground. You can get a false ground due to the resistance of other elements depending on where you are checking the circuit.

Hopefully these ideas... will give you something to look for.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Maytag Performa Electric Range (PER1510) tripped circuit breaker when immediately following turning the oven on. There was a mild electric burn smell from behind the range. I have left the circuit...


first, un-plug unit and remove rear access cover,it could be a wire with bad insulation that has shorted to the body of the unit,could be an oven/broiler element,could be one of your feed lines to the unit shorted to ground,does it trip brkr w/o anything turned on???you can also isolate the problem that way.good luck

Kenmore SF367.....Contantly relighting during cooking?


This is a normal function of your gas range. I own a similar model and it operates the same way. The gas is not required to be on continuously to maintain the oven temperature and will relight periodically when the internal temperature drops below the prescribed set level.

Oven not working


the oven ignitor needs replacing, it's located inside the oven nest to the burner.

The oven has no power and the hob will not ignite either. The fault caused all the other appliances to go off and the trip switch went down.


There could be a circuit fuse blown or a circuit breaker tripped. Either way you probably need an electrician.
