Moved to a new house now the oven won't work

Hi there,

We just moved to a new house and when we plugged the oven in the digital display came on as per normal but our oven and elements do not work. We have tried replacing the fuses so that isn't the problem. I remember having this problem a couple of years ago when we moved the last time but cant remember how we fixed it. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Moved Kenmore electric oven (2 yrs old) and now neither the oven or stovetop heat up. The clock is set.

This may sound silly, but go check your circuit breaker and flip it completely off and then back on. Sometimes it does not completely trip and your clock only needs 120 volts to work which you have, but the heating coils need 240 volts. If you have an older house that has a fuse panel instead of circuit breakers you could have a blown fuse.

Frigidaire oven won't work. top range works fine, but digital clock and digital display stopped working which works oven, so oven also will not work f11 code

Hello steve o - Typically error code F11 indicates a shorted keypad. Try resetting the range by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. This usually will clear most false error codes. Wait approximately ten minutes and if the error code does not clear contact a professional to move forward accurately. Most likely the EOC on the range will need replacing.

I have recently moved into a new house and can't get the oven to work. I was hoping to get a manual for the wall oven and see if this information will solve my problem. It is a 1993 model EVBS3193...

So you have moved to a new house. I am assumeing that the Oven worked fine at the old house. I am also assumeing that you have plugged the Oven into your new house and that is when you noticed that it was not working.

If this is the case then the problem may be that the Breaker in the Electrical Sevice Panel of the new house is off. You need to reset the breaker and the Oven should then work.

Fan works but oven doesnt get hot

One of the switches looks to be a 5 position switch. 0=off, 1=Light, 2=fan

Whirlpool Generation 2000+ oven

Yeah just turn the left hand knob to the one setting which isn't a cooking function - I think it looks a bit like a dash - and then power up as normal on the right hand knob.
It happpened to me but you get the hang of it and it's not a fault.
