Cannot get any evidence of power. Checked circut breaker, seems ok. Last used 2 days ago.

    The oven is hard wired and built in to the cabinets, so impossible for me to check that.  I do note that on the circut breaker , while it will reset, it can be triggered easily with much less effort that the other breakers on the panel.

If your range/oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

Fuse/circuit breaker
Check to see if power is getting to the range/oven. Does anything turn on--even a light? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Main wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the range/oven, gets burned and so breaks the connection. Then you may have to replace the power cord to the range/oven, and the terminal block that the wire is attached to.

Range/oven wiring
There may be a broken or burned wire at the back of the range/oven. If you repair any of the wires, use only proper appliance-grade wire and wire connectors.

Gas dryer pops circuit breaker

Number 1 Do NOT! use this dryer until it is fixed, it a a fire hazard. You will need to get the entire power circut checked for shorts. Make sure the motor has been checked under the same conditions as it is used in the dryer, with a capasitor and changing directions etc.

NEVER EVER !!! Change a Circut breaker with a higher value than the one which is there. You will burn the house down. This is a serious fire risk. The power cables over heat and arc then burn, if the breaker is not right.

Haven't used my ProForm 585s in a couple of months, now when I insert the key, no lights or anything. We've hit the reset button and checked outlets and such. Suggestions?


Your on the right track. If power is coming from the wall, it goes through the circut breaker ( red switch next to the power cord entrance), then it goes to the motor controller, the up to the console switch at the magnet/kill switch. To verify that you are getting power past the circut breaker, remove the motor hood. You can now see the motor controller on the left ( opposite the motor), it will have a red light on when it has power. If you dont see that light check the circut breaker.

Let me know,Matt
