SOURCE: Electric Heating Element Not Heating stove

It's not a fuse, but a wire or heating element has burned up. Please TURN OFF the circuit breaker until you repair the problem, or at least until you know what the problem is! You say "in" the stove, so I'm assuming that you mean in the oven. Whichever element it is, whether it's in the oven or on the stovetop, just needs to be removed and checked for continuity with an ohmmeter. Quite frankly, if it IS an element, then you should see a burned-out spot somewhere on it that's pretty obvious. Then you just need to replace the element. If it's a wire, then you will need to repair the wire so that it safely makes contact with the element again. That process is a little more involved than just replacing an element, but let us know what you find. I can describe a wire-repair procedure if need be. ;)

This "top element" is your broil element. It will only get red when broil is selected.

Go to your electric circuit panel. Locate the breaker for the stove. Turn it all the way OFF then back ON. This should correct your problem.

I have a Jenn-Air JES9900 range and the right front burner is not working but the hot indicator light remains on. Is this just a switch that needs to be replaced?


make this test and fix it. God bless you

Surface Element Switch

If the surface element won't work, and there is another element of the same size on the stove, try switching the elements. If it still won't work, the surface element switch is probably defective. The surface element switch can't be tested or repaired, it will have to be replaced.

Surface Element Board

If a surface element won't work the surface element board might be defective. Each burner is switched on and off with the help of a relay on the surface element board. If one or more relays has failed the surface element won't work. If two or more burners fail at the same time, this is likely the problem. If only one surface element won't work and the element itself checks out to be good, the surface element board might be defective.

Coil Surface Element

If the surface element won't work, the coil surface element might be burned out. Most coil surface elements can be pulled out of their socket and checked with an Ohm meter for continuity. If the surface element won't work, check to see if there is any visible damage to the coils. Also, check to be sure the element is pushed all the way into the socket.

Radiant Surface Element

The most common cause when the surface element won't work is the radiant surface element itself. The radiant surface element - or heating element - can burn out similar to a light bulb. If the surface element won't work and it doesn't have continuity, it will need to be replaced. The radiant surface element is not repairable.

Solid Surface Element

If the surface element won't work, and the stove has the solid surface element type of heat, it's likely that the solid surface element itself has burned out. The solid surface element works very similarly to other surface elements - inside there is a heating element that glows when electricity is applied to it. As it gets hotter, the heat is transferred to the solid surface element

Element Receptacle and Wire Kit

If a surface element won't work, there may be a problem in the element receptacle. The surface element plugs onto a terminal block type receptacle. Over time the terminals in the receptacle can have a bad connection and overheat. Look at the receptacle contacts with a flashlight. If the terminals look burnt you will need to replace the element receptacle. also make sure the element prongs are clean and not burnt. If the prongs are burnt bad the element will need to be replaced also.

Loose or Burnt Wire Connection

If surface element won't work, there might be a burnt wire supplying power to the surface element. Sometimes the wire supplying power to the element burns out right near the element itself. Check for this by just looking at the wires leading to the element. If they're burned out it is usually easy to spot.


Incoming Power Problem

Although not as common, if the surface element won't work it is possible that the appliance is not receiving proper voltage. Electric ranges require 220 volts of alternating current. If for some reason the appliance is receiving significantly less, the surface element won't work. Check for proper voltage using a volt meter at the socket where the appliance plugs in.

I have a kelvinator De Ville deluxe eye level stove. The top oven does not heat up. I expect a fuse is blown. Where is the fuse box?


Check you heating element for blisters or cracks the elements are usually the first to go, if not a wire may have burnt off the backas far as a fuse not knowing model no. i would say there is none unless it is digitally controlled

Stove shut off and blew breaker. Once reset everything works but bottom heating coil. Had it checked, it works. No burnt wires in the back.


Check the oven switch. The bottom element is the main element while the top one is usually the grill element. If the breaker tripped there must have been an overload somewhere and you are possibly missing a connection or fused wire somewhere else.

Front right burner stopped working


Often, this will be due to the element. The easiest way to troubleshoot is take a matching element(if possible) from the other side of the stove top and see if that works in the receptacle.

There should be some letters after the model numbers you listed. The last three letters also lets me know what type of top you have on your stove to guide you through how to access the parts. Make sure you write the full number with all the letters before ordering parts.

If you have the glass top or ceramic model, the connections are different than other types. The manufacturer warns customers and nonservice personnel to never try to lift these cooktops. If you would like to pursue changing or testing this element despite that caution, there is a picture of an element and switch below.

On some flat top models, you need to open or take off the over door before you can lift the top. Most stove tops will then lift off, but you may need to take off a screw or two.

Also, on Canadian models, the front two burners will not operate during oven cleaning mode. If you are a Canadian user, try to reset your burner by turning on and off at the breaker. Canadian users should also make sure that the timer is not set and open the oven door fully to make sure toasting is not engaged.

Porcelain cooktops simply lift from the front and are held open with metal supports. Replacing coil type elements on models with drip bowls (not flat top) is very easy; you simply pull out the element and replace with a new one that can be purchased in large chains and appliance stores.

You should check the receptacle and wiring underneath the stove top for signs of visible dirt, grease or other abnormalities such as burns or frays. Turn off the power, and make sure the wiring plugs are tight.

Make sure the plug in end of the coil element is not burnt or damaged. Check the coil for rough or discolored spots. Follow the wires under the stove top that plug into the coil receptacle to make sure that there are not burnt, frayed or broken areas on the wire coatings.

Testing the element for continuity and possibilities like the receptacle and infinite switch requires special tools. Testing the infinite switch would be extremely dangerous as it is done live with 240 current (unless you live outside the US). If you have testers, you can check the integrity of all of the above.

Another less likely cause for elements not working is the knob that controls the burner being damaged on the inside. You can pull a different knob to see if that works, but this kind of issue is usually obvious because it does not fit snugly and has play when you turn it.

Finally, if you are going to replace the element, or replace the receptacle or switch, make sure that you take the old ones with you with the full model number. Before pulling wires, take a digital picture or mark wires with tape/paint so that you remember how to reconnect.

Check your parts before leaving the store, so that uninformed clerks do not steer you wrong. If you need further info on how to remove and replace the items shown, leave comments. But, take a look under the hood first, because you might be surprised at how simple it all is. I hope this helps

Oven stopped working.top works fine.noticed chard insulation in back of stove.burnt wire seems to be connected to electrode in oven. any ideas?


Hi, Check voltage or continuity on the bake element. If you test voltage, there should be 240V to the element. If you check continuity, unplug the range and test the element to see if it has an open circuit. In either case, you should replace the wire connectors if they ae burnt.

I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Stove oven wont work..


Yes, you can use the Eaton Viking element in place of the Gibson element as long as all mountings are the same.
You should use ceramic washers between the element and the casing to prevent it from grounding out...which is what probably happened to the element in the first place.
Be sure to look for chapped or burnt wiring BEFORE replacing the element. Also look for burnt connectors.
Hope this help you! :)

Electric surge turned off the clock,oven but the stove top works


The clock and display are leds, right. If you can remove the panel where the board is and gain access to the back of it, look for a fuse, similar to a car fuse. The elements are controlled by manual independent switches, that's why they are working. If there is no fuse, or its still good, look for a burnt wire of some sort back there, as you said a power surge went through it.
