You say you put in a 220 volt line, I'm afraid it must be miswired. If you did this yourself, carefully check your work., particularly where you wired into the breaker box. When wiring, Black and Red both go to the double-pole breaker, white to the neutral buss, and green to the ground buss. The wire used should have these colors and be 10ga. or larger. Or consult an electrician

Where do I find high temp paint to use on a gas stove?


Auto parts stores have manifold and engine paints for high temp use, or the hardware store has barbecue and wood stove paints, usually black. Your stove may have been enameled (Melted glass powder process, like ovens, old sinks and bathtubs).

Dacor PGR 30 oven does not heat


I have had the same miserable experience - replacing the brain, touchpad, expensive parts - for this supposedly high-end appliance.

Have you checked the ignitor bar? See a good explanation of that at http://www.ignitors.com/oven-ignitors/
and also http://www.theignitorstore.com/product/frigidaire_oven_range_igniter_5303935066/range_oven_igniters

No clicking noise when turning the nob..


Most modern gas ranges do have an electric pilot light. This one however does not. Normally you should always get the ignition (clicking noise) whenever you turn the temperature control knob. Provided that the stove is plugged into an electrical source. If you are not, then your ignitor could be out. Replacing it is fairly easy with a difficulty scale of 5/10.

But on to your problem. If you lift the lid on the stove top you will see two holes about halfway between the front and rear burners. Just connect the stove to a gas source and put a match or lighter to this hole. Don't worry, it won't blow up or flare up on you. You will need to do the same thing to the oven. If you open the broiler part of the stove, use a flashlight and look inside. You will see a similar type of gas line. Do the same with a match or lighter.

As with all gas appliances, ALWAYS check your gas lines for leaks using soapy water. If you see bubbles after spraying the solution on, then you have a leak and shouldn't turn the gas on until it's foxed. Use yellow Teflon tape or "pipe dope" on all gas connections.

New Heating Element; Has Power But Not Heating Up


Let's go over a few things: 
  • Your unit uses 220 volts to provide heating.  Some elements are wired to one of the two 'legs' of the 220 giving you 'low'.  High uses 220
220 consists of three wires...two 'hot' (red and black) and a neutral which is white.  Neutral to hot will give you 110...hot to hot 220.  Measure accordingly and use care!  Neutral and the frame of the stove are effectively the same terminal...for safety.
  • You say some of the wires are burnt or a fuse is blown.  They need to be replaced with proper wire...not just any kind.  There is high temp insulated wire available from many ACE and other home stores or parts shops.  It needs to be thick enough, too.  Make all connections carefully and fully onto clean terminals.  Tighten clockwise.
  • Check the voltage coming to the element on various settings as above.  If you only get 110/120, you have an open supply issue which needs to be found.
Look for: loose wires, corrosion, burned insulation to ground.

GE profile stove, Gas-electric


All oven elements are 115/130 VAC. Stoves use 220/240 so that you can use both the burners and Oven at the same time. Since the burners are Gas, then 220/240 VAC isn't needed.

(Note: 220 is simply dual 110 hot leads with a common ground)
