If it is a single element then either the element has gone open circuit or the switch has.

If all of the elements will not come on then it is the common supply to the switches which has failed

To track it you need someone who knows how to use a multimeter or a voltage tester

Do not poke around inside it yourself as it carries full mains voltage

Why is my oven not heating up?


My guess is the heating element has gone. Get online and search your domestic appliance web sites quoting the make / model / serial number etc and see what element is needed. If you are capable of good DIY and know how to isolate the cooker then its not a big job to replace. I've googled your model and the elements are readily available. You don't say where you are but the elements are readily available in UK for between 20 and 30$. I had a similar problem with my double oven and found a suitable height table, covered in news paper, slid the oven out of the unit, changed the element, all done in under an hour. If yours is under worktop then slide onto a piece of board on blocks.

Press power on switch and blows main fuse box


Possible that the main heating element is faulty. It is possible that the wires have shorted or due to insects if there was failure of the insulation of the wires leading to shorting of the lead lines.
Disconnect the main lines and use a multimeter to check and confirm the short of the heating element or wires.
Take all precaution for safety in testing live circuit.

The main burner (left front) only heats on half the circle.


Your referring to an electric range I'm assuming. In that case the heating element is only heating to a mid-point then stopping. This typically means the heating element is burnt or is partially burned out. The element is usually user replaceable and requires the old one be unpluggude and replaced with a new one. You'll need to get the element from the manufacturer.

Stove top will not heat oil hot enough to fry foods. Burner continues to re-cycle on and off while switch is on high. Burner gets red hot for a few seconds then turns off for a few seconds, then back on.


You may have a cracked element, they expand when heated and cause a separation in the element. You really have to put a voltmeter on it to test it under load. If the voltage remains constant while the element is heating and cooling, then indeed you have a bad element.

If you don't have a voltmeter, or don't want to perform this test, buy a heating element and replace it, if you have the same problem, you'll have a spare element

Indicator light will not go off.


usually means that the probe in that heating element has gone bad. it's no big deal but if it bothers you replace that element.

RCC3024 cooktop one burner wont heat


Hi again,

It would seem you posted anew.

For some reason I could not locate related literature for a RCC3024LD01,although there are for LB01, LQ01 and a LT01. Most of the components inthese models could be checked with the use of a continuity tester(multitester VOM/DVM). The idea is to check for continuity of eachcomponent. If we are to assume that the heating element as a likelysuspect, it is a matter of checking if the coil is continuous, that isno break anywhere in between. The test prods of the continuity testerwould be applied to the two (2) terminals of the heating element andthe tester should deflect/display how much is the resistance. Normalreading shouold be pretty low while no deflection/reading indicates anopen coil and therefore would require replacement.

These additional documents may be of help to you:
  1. exploded parts diagram;
  2. parts list.
Cheers.

Electric element does not turn off except after several tries.


The contacts in the control switch have fused. Replace the switch. You can probably do this yourself. Part should run about $25.
