Oven short circuit

My oven was happily working away when suddenly it blew the fuses. I replaced the fuse in the plug and now it has power going to it, the digital display is ok but as soon as I turn the thermostat or selector knob it trips out. I presume there is a short somewhere but don't really know where to start looking. Any help appreciated, thanks.

    the oven keeps tripping the fuse and neither top or bottom would work. An electrician found after several attepts to get the top oven to stay on when the switch was put on by isolating the wire to the clock and timer buttons but was unsure as to what the problem was.

Miele 212 oven does not work. We have a Miele oven that does not work anymore. 220V gets to the oven and then nothing happens, no lights, no display, nothing... Advise anyone?


Nothing Works, or the Oven / Range / Stovetop Works Only At Certain Times:
1.Home breaker flipped or the fuse blown?Possibly an electrical surge has flipped the breaker. Check your breaker or fuse box and replace or reset as necessary.
2.Power cord plugged in?Grab the plug and wiggle to determine a good connection.
3.Power cord damage?Damaged rubber with wires showing through or the wire is being pinched can cause issues. Electrical tape is acceptable for covering damaged wires.
4.Aclicking sound could be something wrong with a relay. Check for any loose connections around the main control board on your oven. The click you hear is a relay losing power and switching back on. If the clock resets then something is causing power interruptions to the board.

6.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.

My baumatic oven elemant burned out and blew mains fuse,so replaced both and their seems to be no power at all getting to oven


Some units have their own fuse. Usually near where the power supply goes into the oven. Check your Meyer box for tripped RCD or circuit breaker too.

Oven light blew and now no power to the oven.


If you are not knowledgable in electricity, call for service.
This is an electrical short at the light, I have seen this before.
The wiring for the light has grounded to the oven. This causes the main fuse to blow. You will need to fix the short first. Then reset the main fuse/replace.
In the case of the wall oven, you may have to remove the oven to fix it properly. Depending on the model and where the short is.

My Prestige PR1 S0 oven suddenly stopped working. I checked the socket it was plugged into. No power when other electrical item (radio) is plugged in. I plugged the oven into a gang socket which was...


It sounds as if the oven element short circuited and tripped the oven circuit. You will need to reset the oven circuit breaker or rewire the fuse at the switchboard.
If the oven indicator light comes on when you turn the oven on you will need to replace the faulty oven element.

I have a Whirlpool double oven GMC305PRS01 when you turn on the oven it appears to me making all the right move IE it goes into pre heat and starts counting down but the elements are not getting hot.


Member Discussion on Whirlpool GMC305PRS01 Microwave Oven

Whirlpool Wall oven/microwave combo unit Door message
Does anyone know where the 15 amp fuse is? I replaced the 20amp fuse and it worked for a minute or two and then I opened the door and I blew my circuit breaker. I reset my circuit breaker, replaced the 20 amp fuse and now all I get is the Door message. I also noticed that it fused the outside switch on the right side of the door so I had to open the switch up and un-fuse it. This is for a whirlpool GMC305PRS01 Wall Oven/microwave combo unit.

Also if anyone could tell me the correct position the wire is supposed to be hooked up on the switches? I had someone help me take the switch out and they unhooked the wires and now we aren't sure how they are supposed to be hooked up. My light on the microwave doesn't work either. Is it possible the bulb blew when the fuse blew?

How do i reset the oven after a power failure?


If your oven won't heat at all, the most likely problem is a blown fuse or a burnt out element. Assuming you're not attempting to repair an antique, your oven will have a clock. If it has also stopped working, it's safe to assume the oven is not getting electricity. Check your circuit breaker box and reset the breaker if necessary and see if this fixes the problem. If not, cut power to the oven at the breaker box before going any further. Note that your oven runs on 220 volts. There should be a double switch on the circuit breaker board controlling power to it. If not, there will be two single switches that need to be tripped to cut power to the oven.
Even if you didn't find a blown circuit breaker, the problem could still be a blown fuse. Some older ovens have their own set of fuses located under the range top, in the back of the oven space, or behind the oven. Inspect the fuses and replace any that have blown with one of the same amperage. Your oven might also have a circuit breaker with a reset button on the control console or on top of the oven that needs to be reset.
If you are still confounded, pull the oven away from the wall. If it is a range/oven combo, make sure it is plugged securely into the wall. If it is a stand-alone oven, inspect the wiring in the junction box to make sure everything is tightly connected and the wiring doesn't show any signs of damage.

Element blew in oven; now stove doesn't work....


Sounds like the loose oven element caused a short circuit, which may have fried a wire inside the range. Or, it may have tripped the circuit breaker (or blown the fuse) for the range circuit. Check your electrical panel. If the circuit is open, don't reset it until you've removed the remnants of the oven element.

Oven blew a fuse


The POP sound normally indicates a short circuit fault (as opposed to overload) you need to have it looked at by a competent person.
