Mike - this is for a stove / range - not a washer - right??

I suspect that one of the heating coils melted and shorted, causing the breaker to trip. Given that the main also tripped, it may be even more involved. Please provide more details - including the make and model of the appliance when asking for more help.

Kenmore range model c970-535121. Heard loud pop stove breaker and main breaker both tripped. Now everything functions except bake and broil do not work. Also noticed when push buttons on control panel


Sounds to me like you have a short in the bake and broil section. Check the wiring and see if a wire has come out of an area and grounded its self. Shut the power off when checking this out and you should find out where the short is so you don't shock yourself . Also check for wires that appear like they are burnt as this indicates where a short could be. Be very careful as this could be dangerous. If you don't know what you are doing call a repair man .

Loud pop from Range, stove top still works


The pop was a shorted wire.
The short drew sudden over-amp at breaker.
Amps = heat.
Breaker senses heat and trips before wire to oven is damaged, and before the arcing short can cause a fire.
Was the short at the element?
I don't know, but sounds like the circuit board was damaged.
Of course they are putting electronics inside all appliances today instead of old mechanical dial, because it's cheaper or so much prettier... but new appliances more vulnerable to surge, and other electrical failures. Which is true for all 240V appliances not protected by whole house surge protector.
To test element.
Remove element.
Use a continuity tester across the element connections.
If there is continuity, then the element is probably functional.
Use a multimeter across same element, set multimeter to read ohms.
240 Volt, 3500 watt element should be about 16 ohms.
4500 watt about 12-13 ohms
Volts squared divided by watts = ohms
57,600 divided by 4500 watt = 12.8 ohms

I would guess that the short fried the circuit board, but there is a also a shorted wire somewhere that is still bare and dangerous while power is ON and you are touching oven or stove, unless 240V breaker is GFCI or arc fault, which probably not. Especially dangerous if you are moving stuff around trying to find problem while power is ON.

Loud pop and light behind stove. Stove top works, oven does not.


Good Morning Stephanie - Typically you may locate the model and serial number in the storage drawer, on the right side. Based on the symptoms you are describing, you may either have a communication error from the main control board or a faulty bake and/or broiler element. If resetting the unit did not solved the issue, at this point I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the range to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

The oven and broiler will not work. I replaced the oven heating element to no avail. I did here a pop before and it tripped the breaker. What could it be?


send the model number and brand name,you should check the parts with a meter so you don't go out and start buying parts and changing them when they are still good.if you heard a pop most of the time either the bake or broil element did break,when you are baking the broil element doe heat up,did you check the broil element?if not unplug the stove,pull out the broil element and with a meter check for continuity,if both elements are good the clock could be bad or a wire shorted but the only way to tell is by getting in there with a meter and start checking parts and wires,if you heard a pop something did either short out or a part is cooked,also check where the cord connects to the machine

Not coming on, heard a loud pop, all of the stove went out. Hit the breaker and only the stove top came on. No oven, broil or any of the clock or oven controls work.


the elements probably fried. thats what caused the breaker to trip. you can have them tested. and replace them then everything should be fine. best of luck.

Frigidaire gallery stove, oven not working,


Morison,
The same thing happened to me about a week ago. I was preheating our electric oven, heard a very loud bang/pop. Checked and the oven had PF (power failure) I went downstairs and the breaker was tripped. Came back upstairs and to look at stove, the burners are working fine so I continued to preheat oven after a half an hour the oven was only slightly warm. Did you ever find out what was wrong?

Electric Dbl Wall Oven-loud popping noise at end of self clean


Bill ,i dont suspect the control unit is the problem im going back to the loud pop you heard I would say the pop you heard was one of the elemants blowing and that the reason the the breaker tripped if you say the clock,timer and light functon are ok it more so points to an elemant in most cases when an elemant blows it breaks the circuit .but the other componants also work when you reset the breaker i think in this case bill i would call a electrician it needs testing,sorry i could not help this time bill,but do not hesatate to contact me if i can help you again.adrian

Frigidaire Range control panel DEAD


We tested the EOC and it will indeed need a replacement. Also, just a couple weeks prior we ran the "clean" mode on the oven as did another poster who experienced the "pop" and loss of the control board/oven function, but still had stove top function.
