Re: element light is on but no heat from the burners

You only have voltage coming in on one leg of the 240 line. Either the terminal block connectors are loose or burned or you need to check the circuit breaker in the house and reset it. It is also possible that one of the wires burned off in the back of the unit between the terminal block and the clock.

Burners and oven on Hotpoint free standing electric stove won't heat at all.

Find someone with a good electrical meter and have them test the sockets to see if there is any electricity to the burners.
Also, check each burner and check for continuity through the burner itself.
These elements can all burn out, I've see it happen.
Be blesssed.

None of the top stove or oven elements work. Control lights come on but nothing is heating up at all. (GE JBP80)


The control is operated by 120 volts and the heating elements work off of 240 volts.

The most logical reason for your not heating (if there is none of the burners working) would be that one of the sides of the circuit is broken. Most likely this loss has occurred at the circuit breaker, try turning the breaker off completely and back on.

If this does not resolve the problem then the power loss may be a broken wire inside the range.

It is best if someone knowledgeable in electricity with a good meter does the testing beyond the breaker or fuse in the home.

Heating elements

I have a Whirlpool super capacity 465, the surface light for the burners comes on, the burners don't heat up, nor does the oven,(the light that says oven is on does not light up). I checked the main circuit breaker, that works. Are there any fuses in the range that would need to be replaced?

I have a frigidaire #fef355asg electric range. The burners on the left side do not work. Replaced the elements , still no heat and lights do not come on by the knobs. The 2 burners on the right side work...

check for power at the burner if none there take off the top back panel and check for power at the switch coming in and going to the burner. if you have power in and not out then the switch need to be replaced (i like to change all 4 as a set). if there is no power going into a switch then trace the wire back to a broken wire good luck

Burners not working and stove only heating up to MAYBE 100 degrees

Had a similar was the power coming into the house and the ground wire was badly connected. The power company checked out the lines feeding the house and discovered the problem. Its caused by the fact you are trying to heat the stove with only one line...when, you need two. Check the house circuitry.

Frigidaire ceramic top self cleaning stove

Have you thought about reading the manual, it states that the heat goes off and on to maintain the proper heat while cooking, You should turn the burner off a few minutes before done because even on off the burner is still cooking while it is cooling down to go off. And you do not need to have as high of heat to cook that's what so great about this ceramic tops you save time and energy.

Surface element doesn't work

When an electric element doesn't work, either it isn't receiving electric power or it's likely that the element or receptacle it plugs into is faulty. Check the other elements. If none work, the circuit breaker has probably tripped. Reset it at the electric panel. If this reoccurs, call an appliance repairperson. If just one burner isn't working, try to pinpoint the source of the problem-- likely a bad element/burner or a problem with its connection receptacle. In some cases it's the switch or the wiring. To replace a bad switch or repair the wiring or replace the receptacle, call an appliance repairperson. A burner that plugs into a receptacle is easy to test. After turning off the range's power at the main electrical panel, just unplug the non-heating burner, plug it into another working receptacle, restore the power to the range, and test it. If the burner works, you know its original receptacle is probably faulty. If it doesn't work in the good receptacle, the burner is bad and should be replaced. Buy a replacement and simply plug it into the receptacle. When you remove the burner, look for burned wires or a charred receptacle. Check the receptacle or terminal block to see if it's cracked, loose or looks burned. If you notice any of the above signs, replace the faulty component, too. If the male burner prongs are corroded, always change the female receptacle it was plugged into. A flip-up burner requires a little more work. After turning off the power, tilt up the burner, unscrew the small screw that holds it, and then slide it out. Disassemble the insulator block by prying off the clips. Then unscrew the wires from the element, replace with a new burner, and reassemble. To test a burner with a multi-meter: First remove the burner from its receptacle, as discussed above. Set the multi-meter to the Rx100 setting (or, for a digital meter, to [omega symbol] or k[omega symbol]. With the red lead connected to the positive jack and the black lead to the negative jack, touch the black probe on one of the heating element's terminals and touch the red probe to the other terminal. The needle should jump from the infinity reading to the right, indicating a properly "closed" circuit. If it doesn't, try the probes on a different part of the metal contacts. Still no reading? Touch the two leads together to make sure the meter is working (the needle should jump). If it works, there is an internal break in the element and it will need to be replaced. When you're finished, turn the power back on.
