Check the manufacturer's website for the manual. If the cable is getting hot, the wire gauge is too small. 30A needs a 10G wire, 40A needs a 8G wire. Again, check the manufacturer's website for the manual. If you are not sure, call an electrician. Be safe!

My Frigidaire convection oven will not heat up. What would be the cause?


Nothing Works, or the Oven / Range / Stovetop Works Only At Certain Times:

1.Home breaker flipped or the fuse blown?Possibly an electrical surge has flipped the breaker. Check your breaker or fuse box and replace or reset as necessary.
2.Power cord plugged in?Grab the plug and wiggle to determine a good connection.
3.Power cord damage?Damaged rubber with wires showing through or the wire is being pinched can cause issues. Electrical tape is acceptable for covering damaged wires.
4.Aclicking sound could be something wrong with a relay. Check for any loose connections around the main control board on your oven. The click you hear is a relay losing power and switching back on. If the clock resets then something is causing power interruptions to the board.

If your oven has internal fuses, a wiring or component problem could have caused a fuse to blow. A blown fuse is an indication that a component has shorted or failed, and the problem will need to be corrected. Most ovens that use fuses will have an indication of the circuits that are affected by a particular fuse. If an oven fuse has blown, then you should inspect the oven element and the associated wiring to determine the cause before replacing the fuse.

THINGS TO CHECK:

the broil element
is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn't working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.

If there is no continuity then the element will need to be replaced. If the wires are damaged then they will need to be repaired. If the element is ok then you will need to check the broil circuit to determine the cause. This involves live voltage checks and should only be performed by qualified persons. Components to check include fuses, if the range is equipped, and oven control thermostat or electronic control.


The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced.

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

F23 err


Good Morning Edward - Typically error code E-21 indicates an issue with the preheat temperature not reaching within 30 minutes. This often occurs due to heat loss around the oven capacity. At this point, the convection heating element, convection heater thermal cutout, oven thermal sensor, and wiring connections may be faulty. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would strongly recommend connecting with a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause.

I have a GE microwave/convection oven that the lower oven wont heat, fan comes on top microwave works but the oven wont heat


First reset your breaker, then check your wiring in the back of the oven. You may have just a wire loose.

Dacor 1.5 years old convection oven...not heating


Flip both oven breakers HARD to the "off" position, then back on. If it did not help - you might have a problem with a relay on the control board or a failed bake element.
Grab a flashlight and check the element on the bottom (if you can see it). DO NOT TOUCH THE ELEMENT! If you find any bulging or cracking on the element - it'd out. Before removing the element turn the oven off on the breaker panel.
PS Model number is needed to find the part numbers.

I have vulcan Double stack electric ovens 208v 3ph.what size breaker do I need to power each oven


I need to know the Power rating Example 5Kw or the Ampere Ex. 30A . What is the raring of each oven? The Breaker should be greater than the Ampere of your oven let say 120% greater.

Wiring a frigidare 30 " double oven


I think the issue you are dealing with is the NEC. National Electric Code. Most callouts for conductors are in reference to your home wiring. Due to voltage drop and heat the NEC always errs on the side of safety. Most structure wiring is covered so you never want issues of heat in conductors. The wires on your oven are only several feet in length and I am sure are sized properly from the manufacturer for their intended purpose.

Installing ge profile double oven not convection in new build trying to find out electrical requirements ( size breaker 50,60amp ?)


You must use a three-wire, single-phase A.C.
208Y/120 Volt or 240/120 Volt, 60 hertz
electrical system. If you connect to aluminum
wiring, properly installed connectors approved
for use with aluminum wiring must be used.

That means that you ned a double 40 amp breaker.

Good Luck

Re:Electric Convection oven does not heat up. Convection fan works, light works.


It is probably and electrical service issue. If this is a North American unit, it uses two electrical circuits to provide power. You must find and reset the breakers and check that the wiring is operating as intended. Less likely: It could also be a manufacturing defect. DeLonghi uses screw compression connections on some products. Sometimes, they don't work well.
