The Temp Controller could be bad, or a broken wire from the controller to the heating element. Also, make sure that you have 240 volts at the supply receptacle

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

Electric water heater. water not hot enough


Check if tank is hot.
Open drain valve at bottom of tank, and then raise TP lever at top of tank.
If water is about same temperature both top and bottom, and water temp at tap is cooler, then turn up temperature, and check for crossover and broken dip tube.

If water in lower part of tank is very cool compared with top, then you want to test elements, replace thermostats, and clean sediment out of tank.

I have replaced the bottom element,and now i have no hot water. I check with a meter and have power to the top element but not the bottom one.


First of all, you have 240V water heater because tank has two elements.
You have no hot water, and tank has power to upper element.
Lower element has no power.

Something doesn't sound right.
You're not testing correctly.

Before doing anything, test across top two screws of upper element for 240Volts.
This will eliminate electrical problem as suspect.
Breaker must deliver 120V on both legs to complete the 240V circuit.
Every single-phase household circuit takes 2 wires to complete the circuit.
With 120V you need 1 neutral wire and 1 hot wire to complete circuit.
With 240V you need 2 hot wires, one from each hot busbar, to complete circuit.
Your water heater can appear to have electricity if breaker is delivering power on one leg of the 240V circuit.
To check breaker for sure, move wires to another similar size breaker to see if water heater functions properly.
http://waterheatertimer.org/B220C.html

If 240V circuit is good, then next thing is take 30 minutes and do full test of water heater parts.
This will identify exact problem(s) without guessing.
Buy 5$ multimeter from Home Depot. Install battery.
When test calls for continuity, rotate dial to Ohms (upside down horseshoe is ohms).
When test calls for testing voltage, rotate dial to 240-250-277 VAC

Replace thermocouple


Here is a manual for your water heater, I think it's actually an 82VH40-2

An electric water doesn not have a "thermocouple" like a gas water heater does that senses pilot., Most electric hot water heater has two heating elements, two thermostats, with high temp cut outs. If your heater is not working, the elements could be bad. If you want to test, remove power to the water heater, disconnect wires from heater elements, and using an ohm meter measure resistance across the terminals. If it is open then the element is bad. You can compare readings from top and bottom elements. While the bottom element is on more often, if you're replacing one, I'd replace both. The water heater will have to be completely drained in order to do this. If the elements are ok, then you can test the thermostats the same way. It would have been better if you could have described your problem

The top element may have failed. Both elements have to be working to ensure a rapid supply of hot water on demand.

The water heater seems to not be heating. The bottom part of the tank is cold and the top is warm. I did reset the breaker this morning. Do I replace the bottom element?


Hi,
Yes that may be the problem. To know for sure you need an electrical test meter to see if the top thermostat is sending the power down to the bottom element after the top one is satisfied.
If you have power at the bottom element and there is no power draw then you have a bad element. Drain the tank and replace it. Make sure to completely purge the air from the tank before turning thepower back on.

Double oven... top works great, bottom has power but will not heat. No codes showing. Have had ohm meter on it and all is functional to elements. GE Profile model # JKP56BOA1BB, older model... maybe 1999.


Do you have 220 volts to the element. If you do then you have a bad element. If you don't then it is usually your erc (electronic range control) or your oven sensor. You need to test your oven sensor for the proper ohms, (should be on your wiring schematic), replace the sensor if you don't have the right ohms rating. You can also compare the upper oven sensor rating with the lower oven sensor rating. If your sensor is good then you need to check if your erc is sending 220 volts down to the lower oven element. Again you need to look at your wiring schematic(usually found in a sleeve behind the oven control panel), to determine which terminals to test. As always you need to be sure that you know what you are doing when you are working with live voltage. If you don't know how to work on live electical products you need to call a technician. It can be very dangerous. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

GE JBP30 oven bottom element not working after being replaced


I would be looking at the bake relay on teh coven control board. Using a voltage meter test the output voltage when energizing the bake feature. Be sure to remove the bake element wire coming from the bake element to the control. Test this terminal without the bake element wire attached. From the terminal with one meter probe to the neutral on the terminal block (where your cord attaches to), you should read 110 volts when energized and 0 voltge when shut off. What are you reading? If I can help further, I am here.....

Waiting to hear from you,

Bottom oven not working Tecnik 8525/2


To be certain the element is o/k , you need to test it with a meter.
The fact that it looks o/k proves nothing. If you know how to use a meter, then remove element from oven, and with the meter set on the continuity range, test across the terminals of the heater, if you get fsd, ( full scale deflectoin) then the element should be o/k.
If no deflection , then element is no good.
If in doubt, remove the wires from the element , and try the oven, if it does not trip, then it proves element faulty.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
