How come the burners on my general electric stove


Whenever I replace a block, it doesn't hurt to file or sand the male contacts on the surface burner. Be safe.

Dual burner wont work on a maytag jeco52oa4db13


I tried to find your specific range by Google search, but the only reference to the "jeco----------" is on this forum, so I couldn't determine whether this stove is a gas or electric model.
IFyou are talking about an electric stove burner, then either one of the elements is malfunctioning or broken, or the contacts are dirty or otherwise not making good connection to the stove's burner receptacle. The way to check this is to remove the burner element and swap the similar element into its place to see if it works properly. Assuming the receptacle is not dirty or contaminated with debris, the burner should work normally. If it doesn't (but DID work in the receptacle you pulled it from) then either the receptacle itself is dirty/corroded/contaminated, or the control switch is bad.

Heating elements on stove top stopping heating


To test the heating element, do the following steps:
First, disconnect the heating element from the stovetop. In most cases, this is done by lifting up the burner on the side opposite of the terminals (the part of the burner that disappears under the stovetop). Remove the decorative ring.

Inspect the style of connection. If the burner element has visible blades that fit into the receptacle block, pinch the block with one hand, and pull the heating element free with your other hand. If the terminal block clamps over the element, the housing must be removed and the burner wires disconnected. Unsnap the metal piece or remove the screw that secures the receptacle block and then disconnect the element.

Inspect the heating element. If you find bubbles, warping, or damage to the insulation sheath, the burner must be replaced. If the terminals are dirty or corroded, this can cause poor temperature control, intermittent problems or complete failure to heat. Clean the terminals with steel wool or very fine sand paper to restore good conductivity.

Oven won't light - electronic ignition oven


Hi, it could be your, electric heating element and oven burner gas valve. both are located in oven burner compartment, remove last bottom panel, locate oven burner, the valve that feed gas to burner, has two wires connected to it, that's oven valve could be faulty, also look on side oven burner, you will see electrical heating element, could also be faulty, it's better to replace both oven valve and element, that's the most common problem, but first check oven thermostat, that's knob you turn to light oven, if thermostat o/k, then it's your oven valve or heating element, (used to ignite oven burner) or call a mechanic, good luck.

Electric burner does not heat up.


Hi,
The reason for Maytag electric burner not to heat up is that the heating element had exploded and there was white powder all over the inside of the oven. Replacing the heating element will make it work.
Also would recommend having the following cross verified:
· Element terminals have loose connections? Reposition the element.
· Range element shorted out? Find out by testing; replace if needed.
· Burner switch is bad? Find out by testing; replace if needed.
· Element receptacle bad?
Find out by testing; replace if needed.

Thank You for using Fixya.com

Dual element burner not working


You have to use a voltmeter and test the voltage where the wires connect to the element. If you have voltage (probably 240volts) then the switch is good.

You then remove the element, and check it with an ohm meter to verify that the element is open.

Sounds like the switch to me, but you have to check it

Replacing a radiant element on a maytag glass top range I'm having strange problems with the two right elements of my MER5770 The front larger dual element will only operate at high heat. When turning on...


If the burner is scorched or pitted, go ahead and replace it. New burners can cost anywhere from $10 to $40. Otherwise, check the burner's electrical connections to make sure there is solid contact. Jiggle the burner in its socket. If it is loose, then remove the burner—most just pull out of the electrical socket, although some are mounted with a screw. (Always unplug the range before removing a burner.) Slightly spread the two terminals apart for a tighter connection. If it still doesn't work, then replace the faulty burner with a functioning burner of the same size. If that burner works, then replace the bad burner with a new one. If it doesn't, then inspect the electrical socket for damage. If it's charred, replace the socket. To do so, remove the screws that secure the socket to the range and then unscrew the range wires. Attach the wire connections of the new socket to the range wires and reassemble the burner.

I want to replace an erratic element on a really old Viking stove. The new element plugs into a new recepticle,but the latter has 2 wires, whereas the old stove has 4 wires that were connected directly...


This can't be done. The old elements were a two part element with 2 seperate coils. The heat was controlled by using one or both elements at different voltages to select the heat output. The new 2 wire element just pulses the current on and off to control heat. It is just one big element. Try to purchase a generic replacement burner that will fit the hole. Usually these come with the chrome ring and everything. They are somewhat adjustable but will not match your existing burners. GE used to make this. Another possibility is if the control to the burner is a knob that turns, Replace the switch with a new infinate heat switch. If this switch will mount properly. Just grab the two 220 volt legs from the old switch, Ignore and tape the neutral, ground, and pilot leads. Connect to the line side of the switch. Use only 2 of the old wires going to the burner and connect them to the new one.

INTERMITTENT BURNER ELEMENT


Take out the element and look at the connecting ends see if there are char or burn marks where they make the connection. One thing you might try doing is cleaning the connections, if that does'nt work you will probably need to replace the element.

Hope this helps ya
