Question about Amana AER5515QA Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

No burner/oven heating after house power outage.

I recently had a partial electrical outage related to one of the incoming utility lines from the house meter to the electric panel. As a result, certain branch circuits were affected. After utility company came and fixed the problem, all went back to normal, except my free-standing electric range/oven. The lights turn on, but there is no heating generated. Prior to the power outage, the unit worked fine. The unit is an Amanna Self-Cleaning oven, and it's more than 9 years old. I am trying to avoid a) Spending $500 for a new appliance, and B) Local authorized repair service fees of $85 for technician to show up, along with materials+labor costs... Wondering if this is something I can do myself. My guess is the outage triggers a safety device. I cannot see any label with model number.

What materials do I need to finish the electrical service panel for a underground feed from meter reader... 100 ft from the structure built?

the point here is that you are not a qualified electrician with a contractors licence
If you were you would know that any unqualified person interfering with utility power is subject to jail time
There are regulations as to conduit standards and they have to be strictly adhered to for the safety of the property all of which you would be aware of if you were qualified
all of the work up to connecting to the power company meter can be done by a qualified electrical contractor which will be cheaper than the utility costs

I recently replaced my Intermatic EJ500 with a new unit, I noticed it works perfectly fine for one day then the batteries that control the timer drain completely the following day, what could it be?

Line voltage usually controls the timer functions when properly wired until a power outage occurs; then battery power takes over until utility power is restored. Should utility power be off for an extended period of time, eventually the battery will drain completely
Double check to make sure you wired your wall switch timer properly.
Make sure there are no loose wiring connections.
Even though you purchased a new replacement timer wall switch, it could be a manufacturer's defect.
Has your home electrical system experienced any signal spikes? Electronic components are very sensitive to impulse spikes/surges and can be damaged very easily.
If you are experiencing surges or spikes, perhaps investing in a whole house surge protection system (Intermatic IG series) would be the way to go as well. It'll protect all your electronic devices and appliances through-out the house.

Won't turn on. Power went out to the whole house when roof was being replaced. Tell me where reset button is

What won't turn on? If the entire house lost electricity, that means that either the main electric line was severed or the main breaker in your panel was tripped. I suspect the latter. Go to your main electrical panel, open the door and look at the top of the panel. There should be one large breaker marked either 100 125 150 or 200 A. This is your main breaker. Turn it off and turn it on.
If you don't know where your electrical panel is, go outside and look to see where the electric wire comes from the pole to your house. There will be a meter pan here with a glass housing on it. Your panel is almost always directly opposite of that meter inside your house so figure out what room that aligns with and that's where your panel is. I hope this helps.

Electrical panel dead, main and all breakers

Then, call PG&E...or your local utility company to come out and check your meter. PG&E, or your local utility company are responsible for the power up to the meter at your electrical service panel. After that, it's the electrician's responsibility...

There are 3 houses each have to be be connected to the gas co, the electric co and the water co without the connections crossing paths

It is somewhat confusing with the information provided. So, 3 houses, and you need to have the gas, water and electricity come into the house without these 3 utilities crossing each other. I am an electrician and I can give you this solution from my experience. I rather like to have all the utilities enter a house at the same location. This gives me an area in the house where I have everything including telephone and cable enter and this allows me more space in the house because the utilities are not taking space in other rooms. So, water is usually installed from about 8 feet down in the ground. Electrical can be buried at 3 feet and the gas is the tricky one. The thing with gas and electrical is this. If you cross a propane line with electrical the electrical must be above the propane line by a minimum of 1 foot. Propane is heavier than air and will flow down in to a trench so electrical is above. If crossing natural gas, then the electrical is below the gas. Natural gas rises. Water is not a problem for either. I would check with local regulations for exact measurements and procedures.

Coleman Powermate only puts out 110V

If you haven't seen it yet, here is a page that may help with a manual or parts list.

This problem sounds kind of bad, generators don't do well when the engine stops under load.
Start by checking the circuit breakers in the distribution box (outlet panel) - you need ot do this with an ohm meter. After that check the power windings of the stator with the ohm meter, be sure to check between the 2 windings (should be open), and from each one to ground with the winding isolated.
Whining, a burning varnish smell, and breakers that trip all the time are indicators of long term overload problems. This could happen if you had most of the load on one winding for a significant amount of time, or if the one winding mostly powered motor-like loads with high startup currents.

You may want to look at this answer I posted some time ago.

Partial Power Outage

This could be very dangerous.

I would first call your electric company and ask if they have any problems with their lines, etc. We recently had this problem at our home and it was in their circuits.

My mother in law had a similar problem and we caught it in time. In her house, several outlets showed extremely low voltage and the others showed extremely high voltage.

It turned out to be a bad neutral connection on the line going from the pole to the house. The electric company fixed it at no charge.

Also, you or someone you know should measure the voltages coming out of your outlets, or call an electrician right away.

You may have a loose circuit breaker or a bad connection somewhere your electrical panel or elsewhere in your neutral line.

This can lead to destruction of your appliances or even a fire, so please don't delay.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
