    I am not sure if you can access the link above , the thermostat you are taling about is inside the top oven on the left hand side.I am not talking about that part.

    If you look at the back part of this unit, when you see the heating element sticking out, look at the left side. that is connected via a short wire to a switch, there is another wire is attached to this switch which is coming from control panel.

    this switch is burned out so is the short wire that is attached to the left terminal of the heating element.

    Thx for getting back to me so soon.

    My no. at work is 631-44-3394. If you care to call me

    Thx again

    Thank you so much. That is part I am looking for, you describe it perfectly. I also need the short wire, do I have to make that wire or do they sell that as well?

    Thanks again.

    no its called a high limit thermostat its actually a disc shaped object with a tan wire on one side from the element and a tan wire going up to the control in reality regardless of the name its a protector fuse i looked at the wiring diagram of your unit its the only thing between the heating element and the control panel i looked at the pic you provided that is the high limit thermostat just ask your local parts store for that and your model number will solve your problem

  • robert samples Feb 11, 2008

    either way will do just fine just make sure its the proper rating of wire and connectors probably be cheaper to make it though ps give me a good rating please i need to bring my stats up love to help but every time we do and don't get replies or ratings it drops us but id do it any way lol

I have a Samsung electric range FTQ352IWUX, and neither oven functions (bake nor broil) produce any heat.


1.Even a bad relay door switch will hinder your oven from operating.

If your oven has internal fuses, a wiring or component problem could have caused a fuse to blow. A blown fuse is an indication that a component has shorted or failed, and the problem will need to be corrected. Most ovens that use fuses will have an indication of the circuits that are affected by a particular fuse. If an oven fuse has blown, then you should inspect the oven element and the associated wiring to determine the cause before replacing the fuse.

THINGS TO CHECK:

the broil element
is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn't working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.

If there is no continuity then the element will need to be replaced. If the wires are damaged then they will need to be repaired. If the element is ok then you will need to check the broil circuit to determine the cause. This involves live voltage checks and should only be performed by qualified persons. Components to check include fuses, if the range is equipped, and oven control thermostat or electronic control.


The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. ( by placing the each of the meter prongs on each end of the heater element connectors) If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced.

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

Why has both top elements stop working at the same time


Hello kimberlymaso - If you are referring to the bake element, but the broil element works then you would need to just replace the bake element. If both your bake and broil element does not work, then there might be a problem with the wiring communication. However, if the oven does not bake and/or broil but the cook top works; contact a professional to diagnose the EOC (electronic oven control).

My amana oven will not heat up. Thought it was


More than likely your going to need a new thermostat or control. Likely when the element burned up it shorted out the control. Check that everything else is working good like the broil element and the top burners. If so there is only two other option the control for baking or the wiring from the control to the element you just replaced.

The oven stopped working and heating up. The top range part works.


I suspect a heating element in the oven has burned out. Some ovens have 2 heating elements, one on the bottom for baking and one on the top for broiling. If this is the case, you can try setting the oven on broil and see if the top element gets hot. Usually the bottom element fails first because food gets dripped on it. In most cases you can unplug the old heating element by just pulling on it and plug the new one just as easily. You can check the resistance of the heating element with an ohm meter. If it's burned out the resistance will be very high, probably greater than a mega ohm. In some cases you will need to take the back off the oven to replace the heating element. Just make sure the oven is unplugged and cool when you start working on it.

Check to make sure you have 240v at your receptacle. Lights, clock, timer, will still work with 120v, while the elements need 240v. Start by checking your breakers to make sure that one of the two breakers feeding your oven hasn't tripped.

It is very common for elements to "catch fire" when they fail. It is really electical arching. But to answer your question you shouldnt be concerned if it ever happens to the bottom element immediatly kill the breaker it will stop instantly. dont use a fire extinguisher as it wont stop the arching. And most ovens do use the upper broil element for baking for very short intervals like 10secs on every minute or so to brown the top of product. Some models (especially older builder line ) do not
