This is usually the terminal connectors for the element on the back side. the connectors/wires must not be "IN-LINE" with the element, but more of connection from the side. The back metal oven wall is making contact with it and shorting out... breaker trip.

make connections 90 degrees and not in a straight line.
hope that helps.

Turn the breaker off and check your connections on the element
You obviously have a wire touching the oven

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.

Boil element caught on fire and melted.


If element caught on fire, I would suspect stove needs cleaning. Do that then elements should not smoke for long. (I hope all moisture was removed from stove!!!)

We have a JennAire model CP220W-C01 cooktop. We use the old coil type heating elements. There was a flash and smoke from the right front element. A repairperson replaced the connector, only to have it blow...


Unplug the element from the receptacle and then disconnect the receptacle from the point where it plugs into the stove. Now, carefully, turn on power to this heating element. If nothing happens then you have removed the likelihood of a problem in the large portion of the stove's wiring. Next, plug the receptacle cable back into the stove without connecting the heating element. Again, carefully turn on the power to the heating element in question. If there is no spark then the cable, connector and receptacle are ok. If it does spark, replace the receptacle and cable assembly. No spark, then inspect the heating element where it connects to the receptacle. Look for melting or signs of damaged insulation that would allow for a "dead short". If you see damage to the element then replace the element. No damage, clean the connections with a toothbrush, and plug the element back in and turn on the juice. If it sparks again, replace the element. Good luck and be careful. Don't attempt any of this if you are inexperienced in working with electricity. 220 Volts can cause death or serious injury... just the flash from an arc can cause blindness and burns.

Meat does not brown in gas oven


Hello - Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately two minutes and turn the range back on. Select a normal bake cycle and if issue continues then the unit may possibly have either a faulty element, bad communication error with the main control board, oven sensor, or mechanical thermostat. I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. They also usually warranty their labor just in case something else may turn out to be the root cause of your initial problem and it does work out better to your advantage.

I am trying to repace the bake element in my jennaire electrical stove. There is a wire coming into the side of the connector. Does that wire simply pull out. I cannot understand how it connects. Thanks


If you are talking about the terminals of the oven element, the wire coming in is connected to the spade connector. The spade connector slides off the oven spade terminal.

The power went out and then the elements and oven would not work but there was power to the clock?


This solution only really applies to oven elements only. I haven't experienced it with hotplate elements as they are not normally controlled by the timer. When you have an electronic timer and there is a blackout the timer normally reverts to auto. function when the power comes back on. You have to set it back to manual before the oven will work. Turn the oven element to ON and the set it to manual. The oven element indicator light will light and the oven will work.

Stove top gas flow and gas oven bake cycle not igniting


This most likely is the solution for the bake problem you have:
Find the bake ignitor (you may need to remove bottom drawer or oven cavity floor to get to the ignitor). Turn on the bake. If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing after a few seconds) - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. If the ignitor is a round style - amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If less than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor. If the ignitor does not come on - check the voltage on the ignitor, should be the line voltage 110-120v AC. If there is a line voltage on the ignitor and it's not coming on - replace.
Ignitor part numbers for round style ones: 4342528, WB2X9154, SGR403, 5304401265;
rectangular styles: 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
Ignitors of the same shape (i.e. rectangular) are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.

Good luck!

Bake and broil do not work


assuming that the worst case senario has taken place
first thing i would check is ensure i have proper voltage at the outlet, 120 from each side to ground
220 across L1-L2
the elements are the only thing on the range that uses 220v
if you know how to use a mutimeter
you can test both the elements
disconnect the range at teh breaker
take out the screws at the back wall that hold the elements in
pull out about an inch becareful they dont leave much slack on the wires
disconnect on element terminal and apply your leads your looking for continuity, your meter should beep
if not replace the element
if yes, let the element hang ensureing niether terminal touches anything, reconnect the other terminal
now turn the stove on bake if your doing the lower
turn you meter to ac voltage
you should read 220v
anything less than that, your problem is before that

I cannot adjust the temperature on the elements of my stove top.


Hello Skyemahan,

I work on stoves with various problems all the time, and have never encountered a problem exactly like yours. You may get other answers, but here's my two cents worth: When I don't trust a stove, I replace it. Period. Hopefully, your's is old and you're ready for a new one. A new stove is much cheaper than a house fire.

Best Regards, --WoobieDog--
