SOURCE: Electric Oven Won't Heat

Rob, sounds like it was just installed. You need 240V on this unit. On the terminal block in back where the power hooks up, it should read 240V across the two outer terminals and 120V from each end to center terminal. Im ruling out the thermal cut out because you never used it. I would start with the power source first. The display sounds like it's getting the 120V it needs to funtion, but I don't think your making the loop for the 240V needed for the bake and broil. Catriver.

    SOURCE: KENMORE GAS STOVE OVEN LOWER BURNER WON'T WORK

    Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...

    You must check your incoming power for 220 volts. You have lost one leg of your power. Either a bad breaker or bad wall outlet or bad range cord.

    Element heats up when we only put oven light on


    Stove will not turn off CHECK

    Temperature Control Thermostat


    If the oven won't turn off the oven thermostat is often the cause of the problem. The electrical contacts inside the oven thermostat can weld themselves together and then the oven won't turn off. If this happens, turn off power to the entire appliance at the household circuit breaker or fuse. The oven thermostat usually cannot be tested and must be replaced if defective.

    Oven Control Board


    The oven control board has a set of relays that turn on and off power to the bake and broil circuits according to the customer settings and sensor input. If the oven won't turn off it could be that one of the relays on the oven control board is shorted closed, providing voltage to the heating circuit. It can be dangerous if the oven won't turn off. Don't leave the oven unattended without turning off power to the oven.

    Relay board:
    Some ovens are equipped with a relay board. This circuit board has several relays which control the switching of electrical current to the oven heat source. If the oven won't turn off it may be that one or more of the relays on the relay board have failed. If this happens replace the relay board. The relays on the board are not sold separately. ALSO CHECK THE BAKE AND BROIL ELEMENT.

    You have a bad EOC electronic oven control unit, They are readily available from any parts house. They do not have instruction but are not difficult as it is just a few screws and swap out wire for wire. It may be a good idea to buy it from a vendor that allows returns of electrical items. Many do not allow returned electrical items. Please rate my answer and any comments are welcomed at least good ones:) Good Luck, Mastatech.

    Bake, broil & clean buttons do not function, all others (timer, cook time,end time, clock) work fine. Therefore I cannot light the oven. The stove burners work fine.


    check the main power terminal block and make sure the power is correct.if the power is correct then you will need to change the main control board.how ever unplug the unit and check all the wiring to the control board and the bake and broil elements.if the unit is gas then you may need to replace the ignitor unit if it does not draw enough power during the light up it will not open the gas valve.replace the main main control board still applies if the other items check out fine.

    Oven won't heat, display out, gas burners on stove


    Hello, you will probably need to pull it out and put it on something. Make sure the breaker is off to it before you test it. There is a thermostat in the very back that could be bad,check for continuity on that. Also check for continuity on the bake and broil element terminals itself,even though you have checked it to ground. If those check good,then the problems is in the control board.
    Thanks

    Frigidaire gallery stove, oven not working,


    Morison,
    The same thing happened to me about a week ago. I was preheating our electric oven, heard a very loud bang/pop. Checked and the oven had PF (power failure) I went downstairs and the breaker was tripped. Came back upstairs and to look at stove, the burners are working fine so I continued to preheat oven after a half an hour the oven was only slightly warm. Did you ever find out what was wrong?

    The oven will not light on my Whirlpool gas oven Mod SF368LEPQ 2. The stove top burners still light.


    Sounds like you need an bake element ignitor if the bake doesn't work but if the broil also doesn't work, it could be the electronic clock/timer control. the part number for the bake ignitor is 8054129 .Best off to call a reliable service company such as Sears.

    I have a whirlpool gas stove, the bake or broil will not light.


    Check to see if the electric ignitors are connected at the ignition module, located under the top surface panel. It is possible that the wire(s) that go to the oven ignitors has burned off or become disconnected from the main spark module,

    It is also possible that the electrodes have failed and need to be replaced. These are the two (2) devices that produce the spark (and make the clicking sound) inside the oven compartment.

    If those are OK, then check the thermostat, as it could be faulty and preventing the oven from functioning.

    If you can smell gas when attempting to turn the oven (bake or broil) then the valves are good, if you don't smell any gas, the gas supply valves (one for each bake and broil tubes) need to be checked.

    You might also try lighting the oven manually with a long match or grill lighter to rule out faulty gas supply valves or a faulty thermostat, which if you can manually light the oven, it would prove that the ignitors must have failed.

    Here's the exploded line drawings for your stove along with the parts list, just click on each section to see the parts. You can order replacement parts from them as well.

    Kenmore Ultra Bake Oven Won't Heat Up


    Turn the breakers off and wait 10 minutes and then on.  If this doesn't clear the problem, you'll need an electronic timer module.  Electrical spikes cause problems like this.
