Oven not heating

Model#FES365EBC SERIAL#NF64915412. Hi I have power to elements and still not heating. Tried replacing elements and hi limit and even temp sensor and still nothing. Does that mean control board is not calling enough amps? I'm only getting 6 amps. I think its rated at 40. Also the fans are working fine. Any ideas? Please respond. Ty.

Sounds like the control board relay(s) are defective and not latching,even though when set to preheat you may hear these relays click as though they are latching which they are,but the main relay contacts are burned out and not making connection to let one power phase to the other side of the element to heat it properly,as one side of this element always has power supplied to it,the other side of this element is controlled from the board to complete the element circuit to heat the element,if its good you should read around 240 volts on the element terminals if the relays are working properly,otherwise check each element terminal to chassis ground and see if you get around 120 volts to each terminal on the element

Hi haiste,

This problem only means that you have a bad ERC that needs replacement. You may order the part from Sears, call them at 1-800-252-1698. Just get your model number ready and they'll help you get the new ERC. Once delivered, it goes with the instruction on how you will replace.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I'd check the control switch first, and the wireing and connections.

Tricity double oven

Hi Les. We had a tower oven with three ovens! One oven we constantly used had the element distort, and it had to be replaced.
Most likely the element is on its way out. If you have a multimeter, you can check the voltage supplying the element.
You will need to find the make, model number, and maybe the serial number of the oven to progress.
The details may be inside the oven door or on the rear of the oven. Do a google search, and you should be able to find replacement elements, and a local supplier of original parts or aftermarket replacements.

Check the element. It should be smooth all around, no "bubbles". If it is, either the wires that connect to the element are shorted, or your "high limit" a safety that keeps oven from overheating has tripped. If you call factory, have model and serial numbers.Not a hard fix. Electrical knowhow is a must. TURN OFF BREAKER BEFORE REPAIRING!

Whirlpool self cleaning oven will not heat up after cleaning. Lights and fan come on but not the elements. I have 223 volts to is model number RS696PXE

Hello Ken, welcome to FixYa.

It sounds like the hi-limit safety thermostat may be tripped, the scenario you described is exactly how this would manifest

oven will not heat up after cleaning. Lights and fan come on but not the elements

...that is the component that typically trips/activates during a self clean on many ranges. You shouldn't need to open the front control panel, but access is through the back. (this can also occur during power surges)

You'll need to slide the range/oven out from the cabinet. If you slide the unit away from the wall and unplug it you can check the hi-limit.

Based on the model number you provided it should be a non-reset type hi-limit or push to reset. If non-reset it needs to be replaced.

**Unplug the range from the wall first of first**

Once you remove the panel you will need to look for a switch/thermostat which looks like either of these...


(Not likely...unless model is wrong)

The replacement if necessary are available at "" or "" to name a couple.

Let me know how you make out. Good luck. I'll watch for your reply and if you need anything further I'll be glad to help in any manner I can.

The bracket which holds the ceiling heating element up in the microwave broke so now the heating element is hanging down into the microwave cavity. How do I get a replacement part and is it easy to...

The brackets are usually made of heat resistant plastic, or bakalite, you can search for parts at but you will need model and serial number, a word of caution, the microwave oven may have to be dismanteled to fix new element holders, you can still get shocks from them even though the mains power has been disconnected, depending on the age of the appliance and availability of parts, it may be a replacement is required.

It sound like an element problem, but, you need to investigate, before we can go ahead to define the exact problem, the varistate control is working because the fan operates.
Remove the ovens, remove the rear and may have to remove the top, or sides, remove the bottm fan, you should be able to vue the element, look for Black Grey burnt blow out, not carbon or food spots, if you see or feel a rough spot on the element, it probabily is blown. Replace heating element. Seach in for part, you will need model and serial numbers.
Hope this has been helpful

I have a double oven. Model WW27430. The top oven will not heat. The bottom is fine. I was told that is was the relay board. which I replaced and I am still having the same problem. Could both...

Looking at the schematic I see 2 possibilities:

1. I think the most likely cause is a failed "limit switch" aka "thermal fuse" aka "temperature cutout". For each oven there is a limit switch that feeds power to both elements. So the upper limit switch is probably tripped which would kill power to the upper bake and broil elements. The limit switch is usually located on the back wall of the oven cavity.

2. There are a relay board for each oven. Be sure you changed the right one.

two things---when you open the oven door do you see a button on the right or left side?if so thats a door switch and if its bad you will get no voltage to the element.the next thing is your hi limit is bad.this is a sensor that monitors the temp of the oven and if its bad you wont get any heat.some hi limits reset themselves others you have to manually reset them.let me know.
