You will have to install new igniter defenitly and maybe even the control valve that the wires go to but do the igniter first. Hope this helps.

While cleaning oven I lifted bottom element heard a pop. Now neither the stove or oven will not come on. The indicator lights do not light up either.


The "pop" was the sound of the heating element shorting to ground so naturally nothing works now.

Oven does not heat up


That pop could have been the element. Check all around the element for a bubble or a large pit/hole. If you don't find anything then check for a burned wire in the back (please unplug the range). Does your range have fuses? If so then check the 30A fuses, but if one is blown you'll have to find the short that caused it, usually a burned wire fused to the chassis or a burned out element. There are many things that could have caused this but these are the most common. Cheers

I just moved into a house with a Gaggenau EB 846-6. Light and fan work. Heating element doesn't seem to work in top or bottom 'socket'. Also, neither heating indicator light illuminates


since neither light is going on, then i believe that you either have a bad thermostat, or possibly that you only have half of the voltage going to it, and gaggenau doesn't have gas units so it doesn't have a glow bar like the previous guy said.

When trying to turn on the front right burner it doesn't heat at all what do I need to replace?


Check the wiring to the element, be careful shock hazard. On my electric range the wires were broken where the element plugs in socket. Socket kits are about $9.00 us If you have a volt meter unplug the element and turn the control on if you have voltage then replace the element. Thanks Tom

Our 17year old GE gas oven/broiler stopped lighting today. What might be the problem? Stove burners work.


Most likely culprit is the igniter.
When you turn the oven on it opens a gas valve allowing a small amount of gas to flow thru the pilot light. The igniter then lights the pilot and when the sensor determines the pilot is lit it opens th emain gas valve and the oven lights. If the igniter fails and doesn't light the pilot the sensor doesn't heat up and it shuts down the pilot and nothing works.
The igniter is usually accessable under the oven by removing the drawer. It has a single wire attached and looks like a short cigarette made of ceramic witha metal tip.
You didn't provide model number so I can't give you part number but if you look it up here you may be able to get one from Sears

I have a Thermodor SCD302ZP Double Convention Oven. Does the lower heating element come out from the front of oven or do you need to gain access to rear in order to test/replace it? I removed the...


that model number doesn't come up.first make sure the power is off to the machine,you have 240 volts going to that element,all the thermodor ovens i worked on come out from the front,there should be two phillips screws holding it in place,remove the screws and pull the element forwards,some of them you have to lift the element up the end that goes through the wall is bent up so the wires don't hit the metal wall behind it.on some the wires are very short so don't be surprised if they pop into the hole on you,try to hold it with a needle nose,have the other element in there and stick the wire right on the new element so you don't loose the wire into the hole,if that happens you might have to pull the oven and remove the back panel.good luck and i hope this helps you

I used the self cleaning function and now the over wont work. The lights work, but no heat is produced. I get no error messages, any ideas?


might want to check if element has continuity with light-wire-battery technique or VOM (volt ohm meter)...unplugged and element out... then while element is out can plug back in and use VOM to check element receptacle for 220v AC (to see if power coming to element (good to check also since continuity check can be fooled by a break in the nichrome wire within the element where the ends of the break only retract to make a gap when main current is applied)
........If no voltage at recepticle then between their and control switch/temperature selector.
...the full blast current and heat of self cleaning, could have completed the ready to fail point/switch/etc

Oven wont heat


That depends if the oven is electric or gas.

If it is electric, it can be heating element, temp probe, or control knob/buttons, board and wiring.

If it is gas it can be the igniter (check spark) , the thermostat, the safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow, or the control.

If the oven has self cleaning cycle, check that it is not stuck on self cleaning, try unplugging for a while and restarting self cleaning cycle in that case.

Check also What is wrong with your Range/Stove/Oven?

Main oven wont work


It is the oven element that has failed
Remove panel at rear of oven compartment, there you will see the element, just undo any screws that you can see and pull the element towards you, carefully detach the wires, but don't loose them inside or you will have remove the oven to get the wires back on.
Fit new element and Bob's your uncle ,you've cracked it.
Plz leave feedback for this solution.
Thanks.

Faulty bake or broil element


The solution to this problem depends on whether the oven is electric or gas. Electric oven. If your electric oven's bake or broil element isn't working properly, either it isn't receiving electric power or the element or the oven control may need to be replaced. In many cases, the wiring to the elements can be burnt or broken. 1) Be sure the controls are set on the proper setting. 2) Be sure the stove is plugged in and/or check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves that circuit. 3) Call an appliance repairperson or replace the element yourself as follows. 4) Unplug the oven and let any hot parts cool. 5) Unscrew the mounting screws that secure the element bracket to the oven and pull out the element far enough to access its terminals. Note which wires are attached to each of the terminals, then disconnect the wires (pull off the wire clips or unscrew the wires). 6) Take the element to a parts dealer, along with your oven's model and serial number, and buy a replacement (preferably the manufacturer's suggested replacement part). 7) Reverse the process to reinstall. Gas oven. When a gas oven doesn't get hot, it generally means that it isn't receiving gas, the gas valve isn't distributing gas to the oven burner, or the ignition system -- either an electronic ignition or pilot light -- isn't working properly. A common problem with ovens that have a pilot light is that the pilot light has gone out. NOTE: Gas ranges younger than 10 years old have a sophisticated fault code system that governs their ignition. Always call an approved warranty service provider to handle problems with these ranges. Here's how to troubleshoot your range: 1) Be sure the controls are set on the proper setting. 2) Be sure the stove is plugged in and/or check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves that circuit. 3) Check the gas valve to be sure the gas supply is turned on (also make sure the house's main gas valve is turned on). 4) On a stove with a pilot light, make sure the pilot light is burning. If it isn't, re-light as discussed HERE, or in your owner's manual. 5) Adjust the pilot flame (older stoves only). 6) Turn off the gas and unplug the stove (or turn off its circuit at the electrical panel). 7) Clean out the oven burner ports, using a stiff wire. 8) Plug in the stove (or turn on its circuit) and turn the gas back on. Re-light the pilot (if it has one). 9) If the oven still doesn't work, call an appliance repairperson.
