I'm having trouble with the model # provided. If there is no switch directly behind the knob that turns that element on then it has a control board that is most likely behind the back panel about midway down on the left side. If it is this setup you will need to replace the board. If it has a switch directly behind the knob then replace that switch. Make sure unit is not plugged in when looking for or replacing parts.

As soon as I turn on the selector to warm or hot it will trip the breaker but it will run with no heat


It is not uncommon for the heat element to break and short out on a dryer. The element looks like a giant spring and when it breaks it can hang down and touch the frame of the dryer causing a short and tripping the breaker. I suggest you have a service company check it out.

GE Profile JT912 keep tripping circuit breaker


see this steps and fix it. God bless you

. Top element
If the element only works partially or not getting red hot at the "Hi" setting, the problem might be with a burned out receptacle that the element plugs into. If this is the case, replace both the element and the receptacle.

You can usually tell when the element itself burns out. It might have small holes or bubbles on the coil. Replace the element, if found defective.

2. Infinite switch
Another reason, why the element would not start, might be a defective infinite switch (located behind the control panel, with the burner knob on its shaft). Replace the switch if found defective.

Rheem 50 gallon Electric Water Heater 81V52D C repair ideas needed


It could be element shorted to ground through steel tank, so don't touch tank when breaker is ON.
Or you have undersized 12 gauge wire and 20 amp breaker and the heat has loosened breaker on the busbar. Breaker trips when heat exceeds breaker limit. Jiggle breaker and listen for crackling sound.

To restore hot water now:
Turn off circuit breaker, and open top cover then Push in reset button on top of heater to restore functionality. Put back insulation and factory cover.
To fix water heater: test and replace bad element.

Unit powers up, but trips breaker when I try to heat anything in it


Hello,

Something is drawing too much current. With the breaker off, check the connections inside the outlet (on the wall). You will have to remove the outlet of course. They should all be tight. It is possible that the outlet is bad - they are cheap, might be a good idea to replace it at that time. Also, check all the connections on the stove, especially at the fuse bar. The breaker box/breaker may also be the problem (loose connections, worn breaker). The element MIGHT be the problem, although they usually pop breakers right away after start up. Also, look for anything touching, including the element wire touching the element casing.

If you have an ohmmeter, you could disconnect the range from the wall and turn on the oven. Measure the resistance across the two power leads (not the neutral in the plug). That will give you an indication of how much power the element draws when it's cold.
where R is the resistance in ohms, V is the voltage (240 V), and I is the current.

Unfortunately, the element may have a resistance that's too low only when it's hot and this might not test that.

Good luck in solving the problem......

I have a Kenmore (Whirlpool) Elite HE5 Steam front load dryer. Everything seems to work fine except there is absolutely no heat. I checked the breaker, and it wasn't tripped. I checked the lint filter and...


I think I know what the problem is, this actually happened on a dryer I repaired at one point. Low line voltage to me means that one or more hot leads is not feeding enough voltage to the heating elements (and the heating elements need both hot leads to run) which means the circuit breaker, although on, may be malfunctioning or weakening. You can check this by running your dryer and taking the cover off your circuit panel and checking voltage on the breaker. You should see 110V on each terminal to ground (put leads from one terminal to the grounding bar in the panel). If you see less than 110V on each lead to ground and less that 240V across the terminals it needs to be replaced. (You can get one for under $25.00 depending on brand). NOTE: THE BREAKER USUALLY POPS RIGHT OUT OF THE PANEL, BUT WHEN WORKING IN PANEL TURN MAIN BREAKER OFF TO THE HOUSE AND HAVE SOMEONE HOLD A FLASHLIGHT FOR YOU. IF YOU TOUCH THE LIVE BUSS BAR THAT BREAKER GOES INTO YOU WILL GET SEVERELY HURT. TURNING OFF MAIN BREAKER WILL DISENGAGE THE POWER FROM THE BUSS BARS; NOTE THAT MAIN WIRES ARE STILL POWERED SO BE CAREFUL.

Dacor 1.5 years old convection oven...not heating


Flip both oven breakers HARD to the "off" position, then back on. If it did not help - you might have a problem with a relay on the control board or a failed bake element.
Grab a flashlight and check the element on the bottom (if you can see it). DO NOT TOUCH THE ELEMENT! If you find any bulging or cracking on the element - it'd out. Before removing the element turn the oven off on the breaker panel.
PS Model number is needed to find the part numbers.
