This indicates that one of the heating elements or control has developed a problem. Can you provide the make and model for this range?? Replace the fuses if blown. Check to see if any element is hot - including those inside the stove. Note any that are. Shut off the stove and unplug it from the outlet. When cold, perform a careful visual inspection of the heating elements on the cooktop AND both the bake and broil elements inside the oven (especially any that were found to be hot earlier). Run your fingers along the blind side of the elements to detect any openings, blobs, etc. in the metal covering of the element. Replace any damaged elements with new. Start the process over again - especially the new element. If found hot - check the control - is it on? The control may need replacement, too. This may require more skills / tools than you have and need a pro. Good luck!

The main fuse blew. Look in your fuse box for a big fuse it should be labeled main or master fuse. Replace this fuse and vehicle should work everything but maybe the starting issues. You have a short somewhere. If the fuse blows again or the car won't start repost the problem

Electric stove fuse keeps blowing


more than likely the terminal block where the element actually plugs in has been shorted or damaged and every time you start that particular element it trips the breaker. This is a real easy fix, just take your time and you'll be just fine

We have a King Pellet Stove 1 year old. Fuses keep blowing. Have replaced ignitor and fuses several time. Is a surge protector the answer or is it the circuit board? Thanks!


Please understand the reason for fuses blown:
1. High amphs of the main part in the unit. 2. Short circuit 3. Loose wiring. 3. Wire contacts corroded due to rusted or dusty.

Harman P68 pellet stove glass fuse blows after 1 minute.


You can do some troubleshooting by looking at the glass fuse after it has failed. If the element looks melted and there is no other discoloration, then the fuse probably blew as a result of an overload somewhere. If the fuse is burned black, then it's probably a short in the system.

You can meter the motors to see if they are shorted anywhere or open.

It sounds like you may be correct about the circuit board.

Circuit breaker popping when stove top/ oven is on


thats how fires start when fuses keep blowing. Just use one at a time. Its probably over loading the fuse you may need a bigger fuse block. Call a local handy man if you havent already

F2e0 error on stove


"cycle the circuit breakers" is to turn the switch for the stove at the electric switch box at the main feed of the house electric panel. This is equivalent to unplugging the stove and plugging it back in.

In the old days, a circuit breaker was a "fuse" in the "fuse box"...

Neff microwave combination oven


no solution sorry but we also have a Neff mw/combi oven which keeps blowing for no apparent reason, the Neff repair man has looked at it 4 times and practically replaced every component -power module, operating module,relay board, door switches but it`s just gone again! The model is a H5972N0GB/01 and it is approx 3 yrs old, no problem for the first 2 years .Time to write to Neff -is yours the same model?
