I have a Norge 3H9TZ-EV stove. The oven & broil elements stopped working suddenly & there are no fault codes. Power to the stove is good, there are no blown fuses and nothing visibly wrong with the...
I had a similar situation happen to my GE Stove. I tested the incoming wires and found power on both. I couldn't find anything wrong either.. What I did find though was that the Circuit breaker itself had "half died", meaning that only one pole of the dual circuit breaker was working. I tried resetting it over and over only to find that it was completely fried. I went to the hardware store and got a new circuit breaker. I first looked for any loose wires on the elements and the burners of the stove that could have provided a ground fault, and after finding none, I installed the new breaker and flipped it on after plugging the oven back into the wall. Voila! everything worked fine! Installing a new breaker can be scary at first. you may want to consult a professional to check the breaker for you. Or if you are comfortable doing it yourself, then go for it. At least you'll know if the breaker is good or not. Once I had the breaker off of the circuit panel I checked it for continuity with a voltmeter and found only one side working. The panel I have allows you to just "pull" the breaker straight off of the panel. Some are screwed in, some are popped in, it just depends on the manufacturer. So, based on my experience, that is what I would do. Perhaps it's the wall outlet, but I doubt it. If you want to check that, use a voltmeter to check each incoming wire for proper voltage. Some symptoms I had with my oven were the panel would be on and would "click" like it was turning on the oven, but nothing would happen. Or the Burners would work, but only heat up halfway. The Broiler wouldn't even come on at all. Let us know how it goes!
