Stovetop heating elements making popping noise

RF364PZMT
When I turn on any of the top heating elements, I can hear an occassional popping noise - approximately every 15 seconds. I've located the source coming from the control panel. This began about two weeks ago. I've shut off the circuits and am leary about using the appliance at all. This is not a good thing with Thanksgiving three days away.

SOURCE: Whirlpool oven that does not broil

Nabril, looks like you have a thermal fuse in the broil circuit. Take your meter and on the control board go to connector P2-2, should be a blue wire. Pull the connector off and see if you have continuity from the blue wire to the red wire on the terminal block (where the cord connects) power off, wires off. If you don't have continuity, it's probably that fuse. If you do, the only other thing I would think it could be would be the relay itself. The schematic does not show the placement of this fuse. It could be on the back panel or under the main top. Check out the pic. Part number..3196548 Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: stove top or oven does not work however, clock

check your 220v outlet, you could have 110v and not the needed 220v to operate the elements. If you only have 110v at the outlet the one side of the double breaker is bad

I have a frymaster sr14esd, it turns on and makes noise but does not heat up. Is it my thermostat?


If the unit seems to be powering up and making noise, then you have power and it doesn't sound like a tripped breaker. About the only noise I would expect would be the element heating up and maybe the oil popping unless there is a fan. What kind of noise is it making? IF you have the equipment & know how, you could confirm power to the heating element or check the load the item is placing on the electrical service. One way to check the thermostat is you can turn the Tstat all the way down, turn on the power and see if you can hear the power engage as you slowly bring the temp setting up.

Oven made pop noise now won t heat


It sounds like the control board blew out. I have had a couple of these just blow like that lately. The bake and broil wont work. . Check for any bad wiring but the control board is most likely the culprit.

What is an electric kettle? Is it different than stovetop one?


An electric kettle uses electricty and not the stovetop. Once the water has boiled, the kettle stops heating the water and you hear a noise signaling that the water is ready. I use one every day becuase I find that it boils faster than using a stovetop.

Stovetop heating elements turn off and on intermittently. They don't stay on.


The heating elements on an electric stovetop are controlled be a control called a reohstat. The reohstat regulates the temperature to the elements and as such they do cycle on and off during use. If you turned the control to low and the element stayed on all the time it would get too hot and burn what you're cooking.

While using stovetop had turn oven on for a few minutes heard a pop and smoke from back of stove. fuse blown?


Hi,

It's unlikely to be a fuse. Those are the classic signs of the heating element burning out, in which case you will need a new element. Burnt out elements can't be repaired. If the fan still runs but the oven doesn't heat up, it's your element.

Regards,

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.

Kenmore 790.9641240, while using stove top power burner (front left) a loud pop was heard and I thought I saw a blue flash (like an arc) above the pan, the next day received a slight electrical tingle...


Tom (Tchange): I also had arc/pop/short of SSB like g_royer. This was preceded over a few days by the Element ON indicator always ON (with all surface select switches OFF). I found the arc marks and burns on the SSB and replaced it. Element ON indicator went OUT, but like you, element no longer heats. I just checked continuity for each of the relays on the Lockout Board. In spite of the error designation on the Wiring Diagram (swapping P3 with P6), I found an OPEN relay for that element. Now to order the Lockout Board, just like g_royer.

How to remove top of GE JBP95T0F1WW to replace heating element? I purchased a replacement heating element, but can't figure out how to get the top off of the stove.


If you are talking about the surface element it just slides out. You can lift the stovetop straight up by pulling up on the front of the top. if you need to replace the connector which has a sheet metal bolt
