Id say you have a power problem in your outlet or power Cord if you have an electric meter i can walk you through test procedure if not have the outlet check each element is on a separate circuit the only i can think of that would affect them all would be a power problem you can try to turn the breaker for oven off then on

Oven will not pre-heat properly

you might want to check where the thermometer is located on older models it can be knocked out of position perhaps to close to the roof of the oven which gives false heat reading

Burners and oven on Hotpoint free standing electric stove won't heat at all.

Find someone with a good electrical meter and have them test the sockets to see if there is any electricity to the burners.
Also, check each burner and check for continuity through the burner itself.
These elements can all burn out, I've see it happen.
Be blesssed.

I have a GE Hotpoint flat top stove model # RB787WC1WW and the oven will sometimes shut off by itself. Is there a sensor that shuts it down when it reaches desired heat. It will sometimes turn on if you...

That is what the oven elements are suppose to do. When it gets to temp the thermostat cuts the elements off and as it cools they will heat back up. if it cuts off and wont heat back up its probably the thermostat

Oven does not work

I assume the oven has worked at one point? Does the broil still work?

This is my experience with my White-Westinghouse gas stove:
The igniter bar is toast. There is 1 igniter bar each for the bake and broil (1 on top, 1 below). This is instead of a pilot light. Its an element that heats up to be hot enough to ignite the gas. If it doesn't get hot enough, the gas does not turn on and therefore not heat.

I went to my store and asked about this. "90+% of the time, that's the problem" So I bought a replacement and installed it myself. Problem fixed. Just had to undo a few screws to get at the bar, then connect the new one's wiring under the stove using marettes & some electrical tape, but the rest back together and that was it. I think the part cost me about $60-80 here in Winnipeg a few years ago. But it would've been at least that just for the guy to show up to look at the stove, never mind fixing it.

Electric Oven not getting hot enough

Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.

1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two

Kenmore range

If this range has electric elements in the oven, you may have blown one of the heating elements. Do any of the oven functions work? If you were attempting to BAKE when this occurred, have you attempted to turn on the BROILER to see if it works? If the BROILER still heats up, you may just have a bad heating element. If both features quit working, the problem may be with your Electronic Range Control (ERC) board. Post back with comments and let me know.

Stove top and oven will not heat

first check your voltage, and the pigtail connections at the stove, then check your elements inside the oven something has shorted
