    Thanks for thr help you were right on .It was the digital thermostat / sensor .Took the boards off and tested to find one relay stuck or weleded shut from the blown fuse i guess. Took it off sanded down and seems to be working fine so far .I had priced the thermostat at 155.00 so it looks like i can buy someone a nice christmas present . Thanks again

    Just installed a used Jenn Air WW27430 - when I tested the unit it seemed ok except for a quick flash/bang about 30 seconds after connection. However, now the lower oven element stays on regardless of oven setting. Sounds like I have the same problem as in this post - any further details on what I should be looking to fix/replace/repair?

Maybe, if you have a mechanical type of thermostat. Could also be the circuit board. Wonder why you blew the breaker in the first place. If the unit is digital, the thermostat is really a sensor, a relay and assorted electronics. The relay and electronics are on a circuit board. That's what you're going to be buying.

Ad're welcome. Bear in mind that those contacts will corrode. Your last step is to close them over some typing paper and pull the paper through the contact. It will clean it a bit better than just sanding. You may still need a new relay. Here's a trick: if the relay coil voltage is 12 VDC (many are) you can get an automotive relay and adapt it. I got 3 years out of one on a microwave until something else finally went on the board.

Preheat goes to 100 degrees and stays there. All push buttons to 27 in Jenn-air oven work and after 45 minutes unit heats up.Now not heating up at all.

whenever you set an oven it always starts at 100,if that's an electric oven most likely the bake element is bad and the broil element is just working and heating up the oven,when you set the oven to bake both the broil and bake elements get hot.if it's gas most likely a bad ignitor,send the model number if you write back,also if that's an electric oven make sure you flip the breaker so there's no power going to the oven before you try to remove the element,i see people try to remove the element with the power still on and when they pull out the element the wires touch the metal and bang they short out the clock assy.kill the power,remove the two screws that hold the element in place or if this isn't a wall oven slide out the oven,unplug it,remove the back wall and with a meter read out the element,remove at least one of the wires first and then check it,very simple set your meter to 20k,ohms touch the leads to the element where the wires connect to it,if you see a 1 the element is bad or open,if you see anything else but 1 the element is good or closed,hope this helps you out

pull the oven out and remove the mains plug. On the rear of the appliance you should see a cover that would be where the back of the element is. Remove the cover and you will see two electrical contacts and two screws or bolts that hold the element to the back of the oven. Remove the wires and then remove the element. Replace with new element, tighten the wires firmly whilst supporting the element but don't over tighten. Some have push on tags and they are susceptible to arcing and burning off where the wire enters the connector. If this has happened to yours, you may not need a new element, but make sure you use heavy duty STEEL crimp connectors.

A quick look at the part confirms my educated guess based on GE broil elements.

My oven heating element does not heat, we heard a loud pop and it quit, model 79096112400 kenmore, where do i start checking

Hi Eddie. It sounds like a bad heating element. This is easily replaced and not too expensive at about $60 for a new heating element. First lets verify the heating element is bad. Follows these steps:
1. Find the 50 amp breaker to your oven in your electrical panel and turn the power off. Just to ensure your safety also unplug it from the wall (incase that pesky neighbor wants to see you break dance and decides to turn the breaker back on while you are working on the oven!)
2. Pull stove away from wall or out so that you can access the back panel.
3. Remove the back panel and look through the insulation on the lower 1/3rd of the oven to find the ends and connections to your heating element. There should be one wire on each side of it secured by a screw or slide on connector. At this time you only need to remove the wire on one side of the element. This is for testing and verification purposes.
4. After removing one end of the wire take a multimeter or any continuity tester and put one probe on each end of the heating element connection on the element itself. Right where the wire connects from the one side you removed, and you can place the other lead right on the connection/connector metal part of the element connector. If the heating element is bad as I suspect, you will see that there is an "Open Line" condition or zero continuity which means infinite ohms on an ohm meter. If the element is good you will have continuity and your meter will indicate 20-40 ohms. If you did not damage any electronic controls when the element blew, you will be good to go with a cheap element replacement. Otherwise you may have damaged electronic controls (control board) as well. Check out this link as it will have great information and Youtube videos to show you how to test and replace this element. Good Luck!

120v on bake element red wire and element wont heat up

the reason its not heating is because you will always have 120 volts on this red wire due to its being connected directly to one side of the in coming power source,its either that you lost the other 120 volts of power coming into the unit,a tripped breaker/fuse/etc. or the control board relay that supplies the other 120 volts to the element for a combined 240 volts needed to heat the element,if you have 240 volts to the connection to the unit then you either a bad control board or the Neutral incoming power wire could be burned off which you need to get 120 volts to operate the control board which operate the relay to supply the element with the required 240 volts to operate

Frigidaire Model plef398dc oven not working
look at part number 84. more than likely when the element arced over it blew this as well. check the wiring, since your going to have to pull the oven out to get to this part. check it for continuity to see if its good or not.

'grill element wont heat'

Assuming you have power to the cooker, its easy to change out the element (make sure when you are doing the job that you dont touch it with your skin due to oils on hands decreasing the new elements life).
Firstly isolate the power to your cooker
assuming its a built in unit have a look at how it is secured (is there 2 screws holding the unit at the back? if so all you need to do is remove the screws and the holding bar at the middle (again its either held on with screws or just clicks in to place) and gently pull the broken element out, take a photo or write down the sequence from left to right of the colours of the spade connectors, then remove the connections and simply install the new for old making sure you remember the sequence of the wiring. If you do not see any screws holding the element at the back you need to open the oven door and remove the four screws holding the unit to the frame and pull it out on to the floor.
Then you remove the back panel and you will see 2 screws holding the element in place with the wiring exposed (spade connections/take photo) pop off the connections remove the screws and exchange the damaged element over, taking care to rewire like for like, put the back panel on push the unit in and fix it back in place with the four screws. Switch on and enjoy.
If you had the cookers id i could have given you a link to get a new element (cost20-30 pounds).
Just do a google search the item number should be seen when you open the door.

I am replacing the Thermador bake element in model CMT 21. I have turned off the breaker and removed the 3 screws on each end of the element. I pulled the element forward exposing the wires attached to...

if the wires are pushed onto the element get a pair of needlenose plyers and grab the connector and slide it off,if it has a screw holding the wire connector on remove the screw and slide off the connector,you're looking at it if the connector just slides off then pull it off and connect it to the new element,but first did you check the element to see if it was good?very simple to do check it for continuity,get a multi meter set it to 20k ohms with the power off of course,remove at least one wire off of the part you want to check,you should see a 1 on the screen,touch the leads together you'll see anything but 1 NOW PUT YOUR LEADS ONE ON EACH SIDE OF THE ELEMENT WHERE THE WIRES CONNECT TO IT AND MAKE SURE AT LEAST ONE OF THE WIRES ARE REMOVED,IF YOU SEE 1 THE PART IS BAD OR OPEN IF YOU SEE ANYTHING BUT 1 THE PART IS GOOD OR can't get most parts for these older ovens so if the element reads good the element isn't your problem it's in the board and most likely you'll have to replace the oven unfortunately,also when you put the new element in set it to 170 and make sure the element cycles off when it reaches temp. the element should stop glowing orange when it does reach temp.if it doesn't you can't get any parts for this model.the only parts you can get is the elements.good luck with your repair,hopefully it will just be the element.

Jenn Air W30400 wall oven does not heat.

Turn off the power to the oven.
Remove the racks.
Remove the BAKE element screws and carefully pull the element out.
Remove the wires from the element,being careful not to let the wires fall back into the oven cavity.
Use a volt meter set for continuity and touch the meter leads to the element terminals.
No reading is a bad element.
Replace the element.
If you do get a reading,the electronic control is bad.
