Open wire...either ground or neutral.

Lights are 110volt...and possibly there is a disabling feature due to open wire, as stated above, not allowing oven to operate.

When ground and/or neutral are provided all should work.

Moved Kenmore electric oven (2 yrs old) and now neither the oven or stovetop heat up. The clock is set.


This may sound silly, but go check your circuit breaker and flip it completely off and then back on. Sometimes it does not completely trip and your clock only needs 120 volts to work which you have, but the heating coils need 240 volts. If you have an older house that has a fuse panel instead of circuit breakers you could have a blown fuse.

Can I use the existing 40 amp double pole breaker?


Hi,

Rule of live by: Each unit must have its own breaker. Cooktop needs 30 amps and a double oven needs 40 amps. Never combine the unit as the amps flow if too high can cause the wires to melt. I hope this helps. Be safe!

Oven not working. 2nd hand stove just been installed. Elements working but oven not. Is there something with the automatic start time for the voen.


Hi- check the timer on the oven - a lot of these will require a push/pull out or turn dials over to get the right symbol for it to work - not knowing the brand - but in general standard ranges have these features with the timers.

Cheers

I just bought a maytag 24 inch double oven.it is 240 volt and i need to know if i need to put a 3 wire or 4 wire for the power


Which plug you use depends more on the outlet in your house than the oven usually. If This is a new oven with digital controls, 4 is preferable (I've seen a digital dryer blow the boards because a 3-wire lost it's ground) but if the outlet is 3, you don't have much choice but to go with 3 unless you rewire the outlet back to the fuse/breaker box. As long as it's in good condition, 3 should work fine.

Do i need to hard wire a single oven


Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

You don't HAVE to hard wire, you can install a regular oven plug and receptacle outlet, but this is the recommendation of Bosch.

**Before installing the oven have a qualified electrician verify that your home is provided with adequate electrical service and that the addition of the oven will not overload the branch circuit on which it is to be installed. A separate three-wire or four-wire single phase, 240 Volt, 60 Hz., or a 208 Volt, 60 Hz. branch circuit is required.**

Broiler and bake cycle don't work.


Hi, welcome to fixya.

Based on the information you've provided ( 240 in 120 out ) I'd say you need a new timer/ERC.

I would definitely replace the control. Make sure you unplug the unit from the wall and ohm out the elements to confirm you don't have one open, you'd not want to go to the hassle of putting in a new control just to discover one of the elements is also toast.

Also, when ordering a new control be sure to provide your model number and serial number to insure you get the correct control. Sometimes one can have two ranges seemingly identical, but if they have different serial numbers it is possible to have different revisions of electronic controls.

Thanks for visiting "fixya" today, please take a moment and rate the info provided for you today.

good luck.

I have a brand two month old GE 27" wall oven. It takes a very long time to pre-heat, sometimes up to 30 minutes for 350. Any ideas? Is this normal?


check your power connections, do you get 240 volts between red and black, 120v red/black to white? at outlet and in unit

Jenn-Air Gas Range SEG196 NO CLOCK/DISPLAY


THE ONLY SOLUTION FOR THE BAD DISPLAY IS TO REPLACE THE CLOCK. I HAVE A JENN AIR OVEN TODAY AS A WORK ORDER TO REPLACE THE CLOCK FOR A FAILED DISPLAY.

FOR THE JGW8130DDB WITH NO POWER ANYWHERE, IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A SUPPLY PROBLEM. MAKE SURE THE WIRING IS HOOKED UP WITH THE RED AND WHITE WIRES RECEIVING 240 VOLTS AND THE WHITE WIRE ATTACHED TO NEUTRAL / GROUND.IF THE OVEN HAS A BARE COPPER WIRE AND THE HOUSEHOLD WIRING ONLY HAS THREE WIRES, COMBINE THE WHITE WIRE AND THE COPPER WIRE TOGETHER AND ATTACH TO THE HOUSEHOLD NEUTRAL / GROUND .
UNLESS YOU ARE SURE ABOUT THE HOOKUP IN THE BREAKER/FUSE BOX, DO NOT GO SIMPLY BY THE COLOR OF THE WIRES.
