Thats how fires start when fuses keep blowing. Just use one at a time. Its probably over loading the fuse you may need a bigger fuse block. Call a local handy man if you havent already

No problem with hotpoint electric range til I went to start oven, breaker kept tripping & making a popping noise


From having a Hotpoint myself, I can think of 2 possibilities.
Obvious answer would be electrical problem. If it trips the breaker you probably have a loose wire or a bad plugin socket. Did you buy a new "pigtail" plugin socket or did you use an old one when you got the stove? They say to buy a new one each time. If this is your first problem with this then your circuit can probably handle the load but see if the circuit that tripped says 30 or 40 amps. Also check to see if anything else is on that circuit besides your stove. There shouldn't be anything else on circuit. You may even have a bad circuit breaker but that seems less likely.

Second possibility is a bad baking element at the bottom of stove or bad heating element on top. When mine went bad, it made loud popping noises and sparks were flying. After that, the rest of the stove worked but not the baking element. I had to replace it for about $50.

My bet is on a loose wire. Be careful and unplug everything before you check! See if it's not fully plugged into the socket and see if the 3 or 4 wires coming from the thick plug wire are all tightly connected to your stove.

Frigidaire Stove model #PLEF398CCC oven reset


Hello - Does any part of the range work? Will the oven bake or broil? Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn on the cook top. If it proves to be ineffective, contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Frigidaire Range control panel DEAD


We tested the EOC and it will indeed need a replacement. Also, just a couple weeks prior we ran the "clean" mode on the oven as did another poster who experienced the "pop" and loss of the control board/oven function, but still had stove top function.

Ge spectra glass top stove.


Two possible reasons come to mind.  1. There most likely was a short circuit that activated the top unit. Was any part of the top glowing when you looked at it while it was crackling?
2. Be aware that glass tops CANNOT take as heavy a load of pots and pans as a STANDARD range can. The glass will crack. The stress can accumulate over a period of time and you will be left with the 4 am  madness dim experienced. 
If anyone out there finds themselves in a similar situation, don't wait when  you hear the crackling. Pull the the range plug, or find the ranges circuit breaker in your electrical box and turn it off.

Switching from gas to oven


Your model stove is dual fuel. Which means that the burners on the top of your stove are run using gas, and the bake and broil (and possibly a warming draw) are run using electricity. So if you are cooking on the top of your range you are using gas, and if you cook in the oven you are using electicity

Stove top and oven will not heat


first check your voltage, and the pigtail connections at the stove, then check your elements inside the oven something has shorted
