I assume there are no fuses so it could be one of the following:
bad element
broken wire
bad receptacle( for element)

Everything is working, but no heat. lights come on, turntable turns, fans run, but no heat


Hi,
Normally this would indicate that the diode in the power supply for the Magnetron (microwave radiation emitter) has failed. I would recommend that the unit be serviced by a professional in this area, or disposed of because of the following:

1 The power supply for Magnetron Tube the produces thousands of volts and can produce a lethal shock even though the machine is turned off and unplugged. Really, I'm not kidding.
2 Working on a Microwave Oven can expose you to high levels of Radiation which can immediately
Damage internal organs.

That said, there is another even better reason.
3 Microwave Ovens are now very inexpensive to replace.

Even though I personally know how to fix them, I can't be bothered.

I hope I have been of help
Happy New Year,
Best, Mark

6200.5 fan works but no heat and light remains off


I suspect that from the symptons you describe that the fan oven element is faulty, the other possibility is that the thermostat is faulty, even if the element is faulty, the thermostat indicator light should come on.
Please rtate my solution.
Thanks.

Indicator light will not go off.


usually means that the probe in that heating element has gone bad. it's no big deal but if it bothers you replace that element.

Lower oven does not work. Ind. light comes on but no heat


It sounds like your heater element is burnt out. Get a volt meter.unplug the stove.take off the back,disconnet one of the wires connected to the element and test it. It should read aproximately 11 ohms if good. if a high or no readind,the element needs replacing.

Oven elements just stopped working


If I understand your use correctly, you were using the oven to heat the space? Or for baking?

Regardless, it sounds as though the elements have failed. If you used the oven for heating the space (with the door open) the broiler element comes on during preheat of the oven to get the oven to temperature more quickly. The elements are NOT designed to heat a space, and will quickly burn out if used in this manner.

Gas dryer


Welcome jessegonzales
Check the outside vent leaving your house does not have a screen on it.
Take the screen off. Even half blocked and the dryer will not dry well.



Possible solutions

1. Defective Heating Element

The heat produced from heating elements is measured in watts and a normal heating element will produce about 4500 watts of heat. If the heat element is shorted to the case, this will cause the heating element to operate on 110v and use only about 1/2 of the element wire. In effect, the heat produced will be only about 1/4 of the amount that should be produced and the end result is an increased drying time.
The normal method for checking a heating element is to check it continuity. With the element unplugged you can check the continuity from one wire post to the next. If the circuit is open, thent he heating element is faulty.
However keep in mind that the element could be shorted to the case as described above. In this situation it is possible to have continuity, but the element still be the source of the problem.
Let me know.

3.Defective Thermostat
The thermostats are responsible for maintaining the proper temperature in the dryer. Check the exhaust temperature of the dyer and if the temperature is above 150 degrees, you will most likely need to change the operating thermostat.

The thermostat can also fail in the opposite mode. It can prevent the element from heating at all. A failed continuity check at room temperature will verify this condition.

There are some special thermostats that are single pole double throw. These thermostats are often used to control the timer when set to the Automatic Dry cycle. If the dryer timer will advance in the Timed Dry cycle but not the Automatic Dry cycle, then the thermostat could be the problem.

4. Defective Gas Valve Coil (Gas Dryer Only)

If the gas dryer will light once but will not relight until it cools down, it is likely the gas valve coils are faulty. These coils loose some strength when subjected to heat. When they become old, the addition of heat may be enough to prevent them from opening the gas valve when hot. However the coils still work when when cool.

An easy way to diagnose the coils when the burner is not lighting, watch the ignitor. If the the ignitor glows for 10 to 15 seconds but no flame is created, then the coils are faulty. If the ignitor is not glowing the problem is elsewhere.

Recent Customer Symptoms:
The dryer burner doesn't always come on when starting. If the burner does come on, once it goes off if won't come on again until the dryer cools down.

One of these will solve the problem!
Thank You
