SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

Hi I have an xl80 the burner lite and heats up till at desired temp, after burner goes out the fan keeps on running 15 minutes or so. If I go down and shut off power switch to furnace then the fan shuts...


Hi, sounds like you have a problem with the heat anticipator in the thermostat. If you replaced the fan limit, and with it running that long after the burners shut down, it would be in your stat. If it fires up after resetting breaker, was the stat set to call for heat? If not, the stat is faulty. If you remove the front to get to the stat wires, take a jumper wire and jump from RH or RC to W. Heat will start. Let it run for a minute or so and remove wire. If the fan shuts down with in a min. or so, you will know it was the stat. Good Luck and let me know the out come!

During the cooking for our Christmas dinner the temperature started declining from the 350 degrees to 280 degrees. We tried the top burner to make sure the stovetop was working and the whole thing shut...


Hi Jane,
Ouch! Sorry about the Christmas dinner. I sounds as though the circuit breaker tripped.
First, find the circuit breaker panel.

1 Check to see if a breaker has tripped. These breakers are double sided because stoves are
240 volt appliances, like the water heater or the house heater. There is a bar that connects
two single breakers together. The breaker will be slightly off center to the other breakers if it is tripped.
2 If it HAS tripped DON'T TURN IT ON YET
3 Go back to the stove and plug it in.
4 Turn on a top burner(not the one that may have tripped the breaker) preferably one that you know works that you don't use very much.
5 Go back into the garage and turn on the breaker.
6 If it goes on OK go back to the kitchen. You have done the first diagnostic test.
7 Check the burner to see if it is getting hot. If it is, turn it to high and then turn on the burner that blew the breaker in the first place. See if it blows the breaker again. If it does not. Turn on all of the burners that you know work. You have now done several Diagnostic Steps that are important.
8 If one of the burners trips the breaker, you have one of the culprets. If not, GREAT.
9 Shut off all of the burners
10 DO NOT TURN ON THE OVEN
11 Open the oven door and look very carefully with a flashlight at the bottom bake heating element. Look at the the entire element. If it blew (similar to when a light bulb blows) you will
find white powder around the hole in it or it will be completely broken, or have bubbles in it. Some indication like that. If so it has failed and must be replaced.
12 There is one other rare possibility, but it would not have blown the breaker. Many ovens have clock baking timers. These timers will, shut down the oven. If someone adjusted the timer and didn't turn the knobs in the exact right position. It will ruin the party shutting down the oven at the worst time. But it won't shut the stove top burners down.
IF YOU HAVE FUSES INSTEAD OF BREAKERS
If you have fuses instead of circuit breakers, Find several of the large cylinder shaped fuses to conduct the diagnostic tests I suggest. They are usually available at home depot.
RARE PROBLEM
One last but very rare occurence with breakers is their specifications sometimes change over a long period of time. If that is the case, they will trip and lower and lower overload levels. Simply Replace.

I hope this helps,
Good Luck
Best Regards,
Mark

Tappan ES 200 burner stays on high and not turning off.


I need to clarify a bit.... did you remove the knob and check where the metal rod inserts into the plastic knob hole? If that is chipped on the inside, it will not turn the metal rod that comes out of the stove. Take the knob off, and use a pliers to turn the metal rod. Leave me comment if you have already checked that or you do not have that type of knob on your model.

Burner only cooks on high heat.


You need the switch for that burner. The contacts inside are stuck together. You will need to pull the unit and separate the glass from the lower body to access it. To get the right switch you need full model and serial number located on a plate at the bottom of the unit.

Your ability to perform this is dependent on how mechanical you are. The Whole unit must be removed from the counter opening and the base unscrewed from the glass, remove knobs before disassembling. For someone mechanical this is not difficult. De-energize whole unit first.

Once the two pieces are separated the remainder is mechanically easier. Disassemble the box on right containing the switches and replace the correct one. Reverse the process for reassembly. Good Luck

My weber gas grill will not heat up past 300F


Hi John,

I just experienced the same exact problem ! I just bought a brand new Weber E-310 a 3 burner grill.
After I seasoned it up with cooking oil,I turned all the burners to high, opened the tank and clicked electrnic button several times , the grill was on then I went inside, I came out about an half-hour later and it was saying around 275 degrees..
I looked into my manual and there is a gas limit control valve that shuts down gas flow, when it thinks there is too much gas flow.

Sloution;
Turn the propane gas knob to off
Turn the gas grill knobs to Off.
Click the igniter several times to clear out any gas.
Then unscrew the regulator from the tank,( I then blew into the tank hole and regulator),
Screw back on the regulator to the propane tank.
I then clicked igniter again couple of times.
Now open your propane tank.
Then turn on front burner while clicking igniter, this will lite 1st burner.
Then turn 2nd burner on low then to high.
And if you have 3rd burner or more, turn low then to high!

John I did this and my grill went to 600 plus in a few minutes!!

The problem was turning the gas grill knobs on first then opening the tank then lighting...
You have to open propane tank with knobs off, THEN AS SOON AS YOU TURN ON 1ST KNOB, YOU MUST IGNITE ...

Burner on range will not turn off


Look at the back of your range there should be schemetic for your power control board. look for defective burner wire going into relay. There should be 5 relays in rows. Realy is the problem. I had the same problem with my front left burner stuck on high.
After replacing everything works okay.
