OK 1 D/C the power to stove. 2 get an olms meter and remove the burners, 3 Put one test wire on the wire to elements wiring other end to plug. . turn on burner switch and see if you get 0 ohms reading if so good cercert. if not bad. move the test lead to each of the 3 plug prongs. before you move to the next wire to the element./ You trace them all you will find your short. also inspect all wire for brakes that could be touching metal. Hope this helps mike

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore oven

Hi

This issue can occur due to faulty relay on the oven control board or due to a faulty oven temperature sensor. Use a multimeter to check for resistance of the sensor, use RX1 or RX10 setting. Make sure that the reading of the oven temperature sensor is between 1080 and 1120 ohms at room temperature. Please check part#43 (temperature sensor)---

Kenmore electric range model 911.95875790, no heat to either baking and broiler elements.


Hello. I looked carefully at the service manual for your unit--surprisingly, there is no thermal switch inline with the bake/broil elements. Usually, if the bake or broil elements pop, this blows out the thermal switch, killing power to the elements for safety. The main control board can get damaged due to the high current draw during a short-circuit. The part number for the main board is WB27T10008. The overlay(the decorative sticker with the button/names on it) numbers are as follows: almond WB27T10022, black WB27T10023, and white WB27T10021. I hope this helps you!

Can one half of the radiant heating element on an Electrolux range go bad?


Radiant heating elements are often dual elements and if your range uses these dual elements then yes, this is quite possible. However, other faults could cause a healthy element to not work properly.
  1. Contacts in the control switch could be burned out or seized,
  2. A wiring connector could be loose or oxidised
  3. The internal wiring may have developed a fault.
  4. The thermostat (if thermostatically controlled) may have failed
  5. Multiple, consequential or other fault conditions may exist.
A DIY 'trial and error' fix may work first time, but could end up being more expensive (and risky) than getting a professional in with the knowledge, experience and test gear to diagnose the source and extent of the fault before ordering spare parts.
I hope this helps.

How to fix the main oven in our Baumatic range cooker?


Although elements look in one piece they can go 2 ways, short circuit (visible normally by a bulge or tear) or the resistance gets way too high, They should normally be around 30 ohms resistance reading. Use a multimeter and check the ohm's reading of the element

Hotpoint BD32 built in oven is not heating up anymore, top oven/grill works fine. When it's switched on it makes the right "noise" but there is no heat or light. Is this an element problem?


you can check the element, just get a volt ohm meter, set to ohm's and make sure it shows a short, otherwise you have an open or bad element.

Lower element stop working, wouldn't heat past 140 degrees, then tried to used the stove top and those stop working completely. Is there a safety feature to cuts the stove top off? Also is the element...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

This sounds as if you have lost half of the power to your Oven. It can be from a partially tripped main Circuit Breaker for the Oven or an internal wiring problem of a burned wire or terminal. It can also be the range control itself. but I doubt that since you said the burners also do not work (depending on model) If you have separate burner controls definatly NOT the range control.

If you pass your model number we can better help you. The fact that the lower element is only reaching 140 degrees is pretty much indicating that your oven is operating on 110V vs 220V. The causes again are input power, oven wiring or the range control.

Reset the Oven CB and check BOTH ends of the range cord (if you have one) for signs of hot terminals. For a direct connection look closely at the terminal board where the house wiring connected to the oven.

With a MODEL number I can look at manuals and diagrams to better assist you. Please pass that complete MODEL number in any future responses. Most any future response I provide after I get a MODEL number will involve using a meter and opening the oven to troubleshoot.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Element blew in oven; now stove doesn't work....


Sounds like the loose oven element caused a short circuit, which may have fried a wire inside the range. Or, it may have tripped the circuit breaker (or blown the fuse) for the range circuit. Check your electrical panel. If the circuit is open, don't reset it until you've removed the remnants of the oven element.

Bake or broil does not work


if an element itself had shorted it would not stop the other from working and you could inspect each element and see blistering as evidence.the pop you heard has to be in common with both elements but not the cook top[burners]so thats going to be the wiring in the back of range, or switching,[thermostat,clock timer or oven selector switch,depends on which model you have]you will have to pull range and remove back pannels.you will find an obivous burn't connection.too repair all new connections must be clean and tight,or will burn again.
