IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE THERMOSTAT PROBLEM. REMOVE BACK PANEL . THERMOTATE IS LOCATED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HEATING PANEL . IF YOU ARE ABLE TO TEST RESISTANCE OF YOUR HITTING ELEMENT DO SO AND THAN TEST YOUR THERMOSTAT

Bottom element not working


Well, to ensure the element is bad, you can take an ohm meter to the contacts of it and measure the resistance. It should be around 20 ohms. If it is much greater or infinite, the element is bad. To get to the contacts you will need to unplug the oven, pull it away from the wall and remove the rear panel. Then disconnect the element wiring and touch the probes from the meter to the contacts on the element. You can order a new element locally or from repairclinic.com. Let me know what you find.

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

Bottom element doesn't work on oven - original element blew out (big piece came out of it) - replaced with new one. Top element works, bottom doesn't. Vintage of electric stove/oven is late 80's. There...


check the new coil for resistance with a volt ohm meter. if you have the meter on ohms (resistance) and it shows to be open ( no resistance) the coil is bad.
VERY CAREFULLY set the meter to ac voltage if the probe will stay in the plug where the coil plugs in insert the probes one in each side and turn on bake to see if you have any voltage. if no voltage you will need to check your thermostat and control / temperature switch.

Heating element not working on a ele ctric dryer


With the power disconnected you can check the resistance of the heating element. Remove the back of the dryer. Remove the connectors to the element and if the resistance measured is any greater than 25 Ohms then the element will need replacing. If the element is OK then check the thermal fuse(s) or thermistor on top of the housing which are there to present overheating. That’s really all there is to it if the motor is running and the timer id working OK.

Hidden bottom element not heating. Went to remove it and it had burnt through. New element doesn't get hot.


Assuming that you installed the replacement correctly, can you check the element with a resistance meter?

It's possible the replacement element you bought was faulty. But first, we want to ensure that the oven is otherwise functioning correctly. You'll need that resistance meter to check continuity along the red wire (i'm presuming) that connects your top and bottom element to your selector knob. Also make sure there are no internal fuses in your oven that may have blown.

Please remember to turn the oven off at the breaker board before working inside it.

Hope this helps, let me know.

No resistance in a bake element is a bad element. Replace it.
