My Candy FPP6071X oven won't heat up. The grill and everything else is working fine. Any suggestions?


As you can see on the electrical diagram grill heating element (RG) work alone or in seria with inner lower heating element (RI) and based on the your statement, I conclude that does not work lower heater (RD). So, you should check resistance of lower heater (RD), contacts of change over switch (P7-7 and P6-6) and wiring. By the way, both heater (RI + RD) is integrated into a single heating element.

Early 1960's Frigidaire 24" Double wall oven not heating


Hello Chris Hammond, thanks for your post!

Based off the information you have provided it sounds like a potential problem with your connector for your element within your Frigidaire wall oven. I would recommend reaching out to a professional technician for proper diagnosis repair to help avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Best of luck! -Matt

GE Profile JTP85 (installed 1998). The lower heat element in the lower oven will not heat. I can make the upper element heat up by using the BROIL function, but neither element gets warm on BAKE.

Oven will not turn on. but stove top works fine. model#jgbs07pea2ww


A common problem is the heating element goes bad. I have had this happen and you can see a spot on the heating element which looks different from the rest of the element (a clue).

Many ovens have two heating elements. Upper and lower. Now I am no Julia Child, but I think bake turns on just the lower heating element? And broil turns on just the top heating element????

So I suppose you might have it on bake and it is not working. Might try broil and see if that works. If yes, then you are getting power through all the controls to the upper heating element, so good chance just the lower heating element is bad.

If you don't get heat to either the upper or lower heating element, then I would suspect the wiring or a control.

So far as the heating element, you should be able to remove it and using an ohm meter, get some sort of reading if it is good (I have no idea what though). Or open circuit if bad.

Also the insulation on older ranges can "melt" back exposing live wires! This is of course very dangerous and the wiring should only be replaced with high heat range wiring which I assume you could get at an appliance store?

Or the contacts on a control/switch could be bad. I would test this with a continuity tester or ohm meter.

Many appliances have a wiring diagram down low somewhere. Or might find it online.

Kenmore electric range - oven temp low and takes forever to heat


if lower element tests open with continuity meter then it for sure is bad. i would also check the wire ends that connect to the element and/or the control board, they could have loosened allowing a bad connection and low voltage to elementor burnt off.. most ovens do not use the broil element at all during the bake cycle, only during the broil cycle.. some however do utilize the broil element during baking, but at a lower wattage or something..
best of luck,

Main oven will not heat up


Check the lower heating element, you should test the element for continuity, and inspect element wirings for a short.
If it is only the lower part that is not heating, and the circuit breaker tripped off, then it is usually a faulty element.

You can get parts from the following internetional part sellers:

Repairclinic

PArtselect.

Contact them if the part or the model is not in list.
