Re: replacing appliances

I have wired lots of things in the home myself.
I will need to be very sure what you have and want.
First lets see if the circuit can handle both of them at the same time.
See if you can find the amp ratings of the two new things that is your max current needed. On the flipside you can see what the fuse or breaker is on the supply side. Its possible that since you had a one piece item that did both things that you might have enough. I suspect the issue is that you will need a way to turn the one 220VAC outlet into a system that will connect to two appliances. It is good to be able to unplug things to work on them and replace them. This is probably going to require a box of some kind to join them all into one cable that plugs into the assumed 220 VAC socket you have. If there is a way to send me digital photos of the labels on the appliances you are going to install and the one that took out that show the Amps and Volts as well as the plug that is in the hole in your kitchen that would help. If you are pretty sure what you are reading then just listing them would be fine. If there is not enough supply volts and amps then this is a much bigger electrical job than I would suggest you do to make it safe and right.

We had a power outage and now the oven will not come on the rest of the stove works inckuding the clock the preheat and oven lights come on but the oven does not heat up, we have tried turning off the

My guess is the element in the back of the oven took that moment to die. You will have to get an appliance engineer or good DIY electrician to check the supply to the element to be sure. While you have it out you can write down the serial numbers etc off the label on the back. You will need them to purchase a new element. Just go online to an appliance spares specialist.

Why does my oven does not work but top burners are good

Not sure but newer stoves have 4 wires 2 110 and 1 ground and 1 neutral. Older stoves had 2 110 and only 1 ground. The oven sometimes used the ground a sa neutral for little motors, displays, etc. make sure that the third wire on your plug has a good ground and see if that helps

Model # 79094320300 the clock and oven does not work on my Kenmove flattop stove, what can I do about it?

The clock runs on 110 volts and the oven at 220 volts. If the cook top is on, the issue is in the stove. Best left to a qualified technician.
If the cooktop is also not functioning, check the breaker.

How do I plug back in the GE stove top burners after unplugging them?

The two leads from the burner fit into a socket in the stove top. It's a bit tricky to get it in just right. If the three metal "legs" on the burner fit snugly into the three slots on the stovetop you did it right.

The oven temperature sensor is bad. Open the oven look in the back wall of the oven on the top right or left side.There will be a 3 inch piece of metal sticking out,slightly smaller than a pencil thickness. Unplug the range. Remove the screws from the sensor and pull it out to disconnect the wiring plug. Install a new temp sensor.

I am looking for replacement drip trays and intructions for instalation

Hardware store or appliance store that has a parts department.

You have a gas stove? Lift the grate, drop it in. Electric stove? Pull the burner up and away from the plug (look down at the burner, there are two pieces that go probably toward the center of the stove). Same as gas, drop the tray and reinsert the prongs into the plug.

I hope this helps you

Whirlpool Oven, Ceran stove top

I want to say that since I posted my original problem with black spots appearing on the Schott Ceran top, I took pictures of the top and attached them to a complaint sent to Maytag. Approximately 3 days later, a Maytag representative phoned and offered a brand new top-basically stating that there is a fault with the tops. They would not pay for the labor to replace the top. My husband downloaded the instructions from Maytag website and installed it himself. These spots actually appear from within the surface and are not the result of a boil over, etc. The spots on my burner grew to the width of the burner. If you search the internet, you will see many others with the same problem with the Schott Ceran tops. I will never buy another!
