New installation, does not heat

Put it a single over JT915, hard wired with 12 guage to 40 amp breaker. All the controls seem to work, including convection and self clean, but the heating elements do not come on. Neither bake or broil make the elements come on. what gives.

    yes its a brand new single oven, no stove on top. Tried again today to get it to work, cut the breaker for 5 minutes, made sure no lock out was on, nothing happened different. Still all controls work but nothing you program gets the heating elements to work. Is there some way to test the ignition? Also is there any chance its hard wired incorrectly, I had a relatively junior electrician wire it but that does not seem to be the problem. The oven was in my basement for 15 months prior to installation due to family problems. So warrenty is out.

I think your ignition does not work.
Is this a brand new oven ?
Does it have a stove on top ?
does the stove work ?

    You can try checking the ignition by using an elelctricty probe, first remove the drippan/cover thats on there which should just slide off.

    If you have a electricity probe you can check if the heating element is getting power by removing it and plugging the 2 probes into the heating element holes.

    If you dont feel like going to this extent, check the power chords and the fuses and hope the problem is in there.

Can I use the existing 40 amp double pole breaker?


Rule of live by: Each unit must have its own breaker. Cooktop needs 30 amps and a double oven needs 40 amps. Never combine the unit as the amps flow if too high can cause the wires to melt. I hope this helps. Be safe!

The convection oven feature does not work. The oven heats (slowly) as a conventional oven but when we set the oven for convection the oven does not heat.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

This indicates an open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you want to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more than this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Bake at low temp. Heating element vs control board

you need a meter that checks voltage (220) and continuity. turn off breaker remove screws that hold element in carefully pull it out just enuff to remove wires.remove wires check for continuity on element if there element is good. tape the leads to the wires turn on breaker, turn on oven if no 220 volts bad board or broken wire.

Wiring a frigidare 30 " double oven

I think the issue you are dealing with is the NEC. National Electric Code. Most callouts for conductors are in reference to your home wiring. Due to voltage drop and heat the NEC always errs on the side of safety. Most structure wiring is covered so you never want issues of heat in conductors. The wires on your oven are only several feet in length and I am sure are sized properly from the manufacturer for their intended purpose.

Installing ge profile double oven not convection in new build trying to find out electrical requirements ( size breaker 50,60amp ?)

You must use a three-wire, single-phase A.C.
208Y/120 Volt or 240/120 Volt, 60 hertz
electrical system. If you connect to aluminum
wiring, properly installed connectors approved
for use with aluminum wiring must be used.

That means that you ned a double 40 amp breaker.

Good Luck

Oven/Broiler fails th heat

Sounds like a bimetal switch is blown. first I would check SWITCH LIMIT BIMETAL next the LIMIT SWITCH-UPPER(LOCK) Too check them first trip the breaker so you don't have power to the oven, then you will have to take the oven out of the remove the top cover. then in the center-front there are two round bimetal switchs with two wires coming out of them..remove the wires and check them with an ohm meter both should have continuity across them ...if no continuity you have a bad switch. let me know what you find out..
