My Kenmore Elite electric stove top will turn on fine, but it will randomly cut off. Then none of the burners will heat up, but lights are on like all is fine. If I turn off the power for 5 minutes it...

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

An overheating magnetron can be :
  • operating oven without cover(s) in place
  • wrong magnetron installed in oven
  • an old or otherwise failing magnetron
  • cracked magnetron magnet
  • improper power line voltage (US homes should be 110-125VAC)
  • foods low in moisture (popcorn & bacon, e.g. - add 1/2 cup of water in rear oven)
  • failed or inoperable cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan
  • deteriorating foam weatherstripping seals in air ducts or on outside cover
  • blocked air vents (dust, animal nest debris, insufficient free air space behind & around oven, etc.)
  • clogged or greasy charcoal filter or grease filter
  • blocked duct in hood vent exhaust
I suspect a failure or the fan, clogged filter or bad magnetron.

I appreciate your thoughtful rating of my answer.

Dripping kitchen exhaust fans

It sounds like there is a restriction in the vent or the hood is to low. It should be at least 18" above the cooking surface.

Two of the four hoods have had the plastic control parts melt. Hoods are 26.5 inches away from stove tops & is regular residential use. Breeze l, l l model # AK1224, 1200, 1238

Is it possible that the fans were not ALWAYS on when using the stoves?

Also using the proper size ducting is important to make sure adequate airflow is possible.

If temperatures are getting to the point of melting plastic, that is VERY unsafe.

Make sure ALL hood fans are operating when ANY stove is on. Heat rises and INFARED energy can heat stuff at a distance.

My Range Hood (Best by Broan K260A) is just two years old in a new house. WHen I use it, fat & grease drip down from the left and right edges against the wall. Can someone tell the problem?

grease accumulation, remove the fours screws on the lower plate, to remove excess grease. further you can unscrew the bolt that are holding the assembly and unplug the unit. after remove fans with allen key and remove motor , clean and reassemble , make shure to put motor the right back the same way. reassemble the same way , problem should be solve for at least 7 years depending on cooking.

Oil mystierously appears on bottom pan of oven, 465, when in use.


Your stove has no parts that contain any type of oil or grease. It's possible that the prior owner accidently spilled some oil on the stove. I would continue to clean up the grease and hopefully it will all run down and after the clean up, it will disappear.

You are welcome to contact us at: for any questions or should you need appliance parts or accessories.
We hope this helps and we wish you a Happy New Year! Ella

Oven and broiler will not stay on.lights blink

I performed this exact same repair of a Thermador Model P366CS/03 on Thanksgiving Day 2017.
It seems a bit of grease had dripped down onto the microswitch with the sail on it. The grease was enough to prevent the switch from actuating. The thing is held down with two 4-40 screws and loose nuts. Be careful not to drop the screws into the range.
Now the problem I had was getting into the top of the stove. If the burner venturies are the least bit corroded, it's very difficult to get into the top level to gain access to the switch.

Fan has a humming noise and locking up

a.if there were a dead bird inside, you'd know it from the smell! if the outside vent has the proper hood on it, it's doubtful a bird could get into it. possibly a roof-rat, but still- the smell!
b. have you 'de-greased' the filter lately? clogged filter can cause airflow problems, as well as allowing fan blades to become greased up and unbalanced, which could cause a noisy condition. if you can- remove the filter unit and check the fan blades for crud. use a gentle application of windex, rubbing alcohol, or some other gentle solvent to clean the blades. the leading edges usually pick up the most crud. you should be able to see this! carefully, using q-tips, or a small brush, clean off the crud! the fan's probably out of balance. WD40 works pretty well, too. also lubricates the shaft bushing that the blades are attached to. make sure the fan is turned off! duh!! good luck! also- soak the filter in hot water and a good de-greaser for a while, 'til you can see light through it. it's probably aluminum mesh- so use very hot water and a goodly amount of 'grease cutting' dish detergent. rinse well.
once again- good luck! the filter is probably held in place by clips. once removed, you will probably need a flashlight to work on the fan blades. put paper towels, or newspaper down to catch drips!

The metal drip tube that is situated from the top part of the

if you remove the tube, it can be gently heated with a torch and the grease allowed to run out, after which, pass large amounts of hot hot water through the tube. to clean without removing, I find a speedometer cable works best to get a path through the pipe, then again, large amounts of hot hot water to flush out/clean the pipe

Microwave turned off

I always suggest that the hood / exhaust fan be on whenever you're cooking on the stove top. This helps keep grease and steam out of the controls.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

Otherwise, you may have a bad controller, which we may be able to repair for you.
