Oven is slow to heat up and will not heat above 250


You may have a bad heater coil in the oven or have lost a leg in the 220 line. Check and reset the breaker 1st then check the voltage in the receptacle. It should be 110 from each leg to ground and 220 across the hot legs.

Heater element only gets 120volts. Should be 240v, correct? Water does not heat up.


Testing voltage on heater can be tricky since elements can test 120Volt to ground all all times.
This is because thermostats only turn off 1 Hot leg in the 240Volt circuit, while the other hot leg remains live. Each hot leg in 240Volt circuit is 120Volt.

Dayton electric heater model 3UF94 can you rewire from 3phase 240v to singel phase 240v


You can wire any heater with elements to single phase because all heaters are single phase. It will require a larger feed because your amp draw is going to go up doing away with the third leg. You split the heaters up from 3 phase to 2 legs amp draw is going to go up 30 percent or so.

No hot water at all but power to all elements and to thermostats is there a dip tube in the rheem model 71-40D


Water heater can test for 120V power on elements and thermostats at all times.
That's because thermostats turn off one leg of 240Volt circuit, and not both legs.
You mentioned thermostats and elements, implying two elements and two thermostats, so your water heater is 240Volt.
240Volt breaker might be bad on one leg.

Yes the water heater has a dip tube.

No hot or warm water what is the voltage reading susposed to be on the heating elements? I have 122 volts on each terminal on both elements but no action, what am i doing wrong?


If water is totally cold, then upper element is not getting 240V. Since element tested for 120V, then that says upper element is burned out, upper thermostat is bad, or circuit breaker is bad.
Best thing is to buy multimeter and do 30 minute troubleshoot:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html

Also read information below for understanding how water heater works.

Testing elements for voltage can be misleading.
If water heater has 2 elements, then tank is 240Volts.
240V water heaters have 120V on each element at all times.
So elements have hot 120V power, but they are not turned on until the circuit is complete with 240V.
Open following links to read specifics about 120V and 240V
http://waterheatertimer.org/B220C.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-water-heater-thermostat-works.html

240V is made from two 120V Hot wires from breaker box.
Each 120V line from breaker is called a 'leg.'
So 240V circuit has two legs, and both legs need to be turned on to complete 240V circuit.

Water heater thermostats turn off only one leg.
The other leg is Hot all the time.
So when you test screws on an element, for example test between a screw and any bare metal part of tank, then the screw will always show 120V.
That is just one leg of the 240V circuit.
But the 240V circuit is not turned On until both legs are connected.
Every residential circuit needs two wires to complete the circuit, and in the case of 240V, those two wires are both 120V.

When the thermostat turns on, it turns on the second leg to the element and that completes the 240V circuit.

220 appliances in house all out.lights up but either dont heat or wont bake .lightning could be culprit but never lost tv reception.dryer runs ,no heat.water heater out.stove lights up wont get hot.shut...


Sounds like you have lost one leg of your power

Think of it like this

You an upside down "Y" at the top of your breaker panel
220 - 240 volts come in the Y and break in half 120 volts to each leg of the "Y"
A 220 Volt breaker straddles both legs a 110 volt breaker only contacts one leg
I suspect that you have lost one leg
Possibly at the main breaker ( top most)( main disconnect) in your panel
If you have a tester with the capacity to test 240 you can test the two top lugs where the main wire comes in Test them together That is one probe of your tester on each wire you should show 240+/- volts
Then you can move down through the panel 120 +/- on each leg
Hope this helps if you need more just let me know

Tdc is not heating any more (dryer)


If it is spinning then you may have lost a 110 leg on your electrical outlet that causes the heaters to come on. Start there and work your way back to the dryer. You should have 110 from the ground(lower center hole) to the hot left hole. You should also have the same on the 110 ground to the right hot leg. if you check both the left and right together you should have 220/240 volts. If you don't stop right there and call an electrician. If you do have 110 on each leg as we call it giving you a combined 220/240 volts (it sometimes varies) move up the line to dryer. Either the heater coil has broken (good time to check for good airflow at the vent) or a non resettable thermostat has been tripped causing the heaters to stay off. Poor airflow can cause these two things to fail. The thermostat will need to be replaced if it is the non resettable type. The heaters may have gone too. Those should be checked as well.

Whirlpool RM280PXAQO power loss to one leg of bake element


remove leads from heater and carry out resistance test to see if heater is ok. you have checked the voltage so presume you have a meter.if not test voltage on both sides of heater connect directly to ground and other lead on ground of heater you should have a voltage if not you have a ground fault
