Dear Ralph,
I am extremely happy you have asked this question, and here is why.
I am a retired Fire Chief, and I should like to ask you to NOT use the oven, stovetop, or range until it is repaired, as there is ever reason to assume you are about to have a fire.
The last one of these that I repaired had a defective ground wire, and required only a rewired wall socket to fix the problem.
The steps will be to unhook the range, stove top, and/or oven, and check the wiring in the back of it, first the wall socket (take it apart).
If that is good, then take the range , etc. apart until you find the short circuit.
It may be a burnt wire, a wire that is shorted out, or a defective control unit.
God bless your efforts.

Whenever I use the oven and my stove top is on, the stove blows my breaker. I have to reset my breaker in the breaker box and can not use my over.


Depends which breaker is tripping. If it is the micro circuit breaker it would suggest the circuit is overloaded or shorting and if it is the RCD it is likely to mean there is a current/voltage leak to ground and the appliance has a fault.

If you can use the oven OR the stove top but not both together the circuit is clearly overloaded or the MCB is faulty or of the wrong specification...

I can give no more advice without more details.

Burners work, no display, no oven light, can't turn on oven, buttons don't function


Check your circuit breakers, they should be double breakers. Probably 30 to 50 AMP. Sometimes one side of a double breaker will trip or fail. This will give the appliance 120 volts instead of 220. The "leg" of the 220 volt circuit that is out might control the stove's display, and the oven would not work on 120 volts. If the burners aren't as hot as they should be, or are slow in heating up it would also indicate a faulty breaker If it's not the breakers it's likely a problem in the stove circuitry.

Where are fuses in Kenmore stove C970


Stoves generally do not have internal fuses they rely on the house circuit breaker to protect the circuit. Some stoves have what is called a thermal fuse. These can trip when the oven or broiler has overheated. Some are located on the back panel and some are located on the top panel under the top of the stove. Since this is a smooth top model there may be one on the back panel. More than likely there is a problem with the oven control circuit possibly in the electronic control. The relays can go bad on the control and the oven will not work.

Oven stopped working


If you are saying that the breaker in the breaker box has been tripped, then there is a problem with the circuit or in the stove. The circuit may be checked with a volt meter. If the problem is in the wiring circuit, the breaker will trip with the stove unplugged. The problem is most likely in the stove, and the stove's wiring needs to checked. If you are unfamiliar with 230V wiring and how to safely test the wiring, have an appliance technician service the stove.

No problem with hotpoint electric range til I went to start oven, breaker kept tripping & making a popping noise


From having a Hotpoint myself, I can think of 2 possibilities.
Obvious answer would be electrical problem. If it trips the breaker you probably have a loose wire or a bad plugin socket. Did you buy a new "pigtail" plugin socket or did you use an old one when you got the stove? They say to buy a new one each time. If this is your first problem with this then your circuit can probably handle the load but see if the circuit that tripped says 30 or 40 amps. Also check to see if anything else is on that circuit besides your stove. There shouldn't be anything else on circuit. You may even have a bad circuit breaker but that seems less likely.

Second possibility is a bad baking element at the bottom of stove or bad heating element on top. When mine went bad, it made loud popping noises and sparks were flying. After that, the rest of the stove worked but not the baking element. I had to replace it for about $50.

My bet is on a loose wire. Be careful and unplug everything before you check! See if it's not fully plugged into the socket and see if the 3 or 4 wires coming from the thick plug wire are all tightly connected to your stove.

Electric stove


Check the thermal coupler a copper thermometer for your stove after checking all the fuses in stove and circuit breaker box of house to see if any have tripped. Circuit Breakers should have the switches all in a line. Any not in the lie will be tripped. Fuses in your stove are usually in the top part of the stove where the instruments are and fuses screw out and visually are easy to detect if they are blown or not. Remember all ways Unplug what you are working on to prevent shock

Stove top and oven doesn't work.


If it is an electric stove it may have tripped one side of the 230 line. Check the house cuircuit breaker panel and find the stove circuit breaker. It will be tied together by a bar or clip. Shut off both breakers completly and reset them back completely. If it is a power problem this should reset the stove.

Stove top is working but neither the broiler nor bake is working. Cannot bale anything but the stove top cookers are fine. What could be the problem


Stoves are wired for 220 volt, but the range top will operate on 110 volt so your Breaker should be a single 220 volt breaker but can be achieved using two 110 volt breakers if one of the breakers blow the range top may still operate but the oven will not. So my suggestion is to Check your breakers to see if you are operating on two 110 volt breakers and one is possibly tripped.

Thumbs Up if Helpful, Feedback is Appreciated!!!
