Replaced element, oven is still not heating

Stove eyes, timer and oven light all still work but the oven doesn't heat even after replacing the element. Are there fuses somewhere that could be blown? If so, where and how do we change them?

    Thanks so much. I believe my husband has determined that it is the board that needs replacing. NOTHING in the oven works except the light...not the lower element, not the broil function and not the self cleaning function. Now my next question is, is it worth repairing or should we just spend the extra hundred bucks to replace the entire stove? Bless his heart, my husband really isn't very electronics savvy...and by the time we pay a repairman and purchase the part, it would be less expensive to get a new one...would it not?



    Thanks again for your help...if he does choose to purchase the board, I just might need those step by step instructions!!

    This one already IS low end and you don't know my husband! LOL He is not at all electronically inclined. I'm also wondering about clearanced models from last year....



    We did just discover, however, that the burners aren't working now. The clock and timer both work...the light even comes on when we turn on the burners, but they do not heat. What now???

    I have a Whirlpool Standard Cleaning Electric Range, Model RF315PXKQ; elements went out; replaced; however does not heat. The burners work, all of the lights come on for bake, broil; etc; when you press bake or broil and set the temperature it goes through the motions of preheating; however, does not heat.



    My son-in-law can take his voltage device and touch what is says is "points" and the oven will heat; other than that, nothing. Any help would be appreciated. I did ask the question several days ago and paid $9.99 through PayPal; however, have not yet received an e-mail from anyone with FixYa even though the money was collected.



    Please help.

    Two large elements are not heating. Two small ones work fine. I have changed both sockets and heating elements. Still not working! Is there any fuse there?

We have a Kenmore stove. The top burners and the oven were not working but the clock still worked. Thanks to the tips here it was a easy fix. It was a corroded and burnt wire on the power cord at the terminal block on the back of the stove. Picked up a Range cord at Ace Hardware for $16.00. Easy to replace. Thanks again.

You may still have a bad Electronic Range Control (ERC). This is your timer that you mentioned. The oven is controlled by the ERC. There is a separate circuit for the BROIL and BAKE functions. Does the BROIL element still work? Or, are both elements not working? You may want to double check all your connections from the element to the control board as well. Sometimes the wire lugs can oxidize and not make good contact. Check the ERC to see if there any obvious signs of failure. Burned components are common. These boards are considered "non-serviceable" and usually requires replacing. You can attempt component-level troubleshooting if you are savvy with electronics. There's usually a basic block diagram that comes with your appliance mounted somewhere inside the operator console or on the back panel of the range.

The ERC for your range would cost in the neighborhood of about $100 - $140 to replace. Prices will vary between model versions and will also depend on where you get it. It is a very simple repair job if you wish to pursue this yourself. I can give you step-by-step instructions if you need further assistance. I hope this helps you.

PS The reason all your surface elements still work is because they are controlled by infinite switches behind the control knobs. There is a separate switch for EACH burner.

    If you make the repairs yourself, all you have to purchase is the ERC board. Labor costs alone can double the price of a repair job. I looked up the model number you provided and there are several ERCs listed between the price of $100 - $140. I would need a COMPLETE model number (located somewhere near the oven door/lower drawer opening, or on the back of the range). This is not a difficult repair and can be accomplished by almost anyone with a little guidance. I don't know if you've priced appliances lately, but you're not going to be able to replace your current one for a couple hundred dollars unless you go very low end. Just some food for thought...Let me know if you need any further assistance. Glad to help.

    NONE of the burners are working? AND...you say the oven isn't working either. This is odd since they normally aren't fed from the same source (other than the terminal block in the back of the range where the power cord connects to the range), or at the receptacle. It sounds like you have a wiring problem. Could you possibly have the range wired wrong? When you replaced the oven element, did you disconnect anything? It is important to follow the color scheme of the wires on the cord with the wires at the terminal block. They should all match. RED goes to red, BLACK goes to black...etc. Have you checked for the proper voltage at the terminal block? Check across the BLACK and RED wires at the terminal block. You should read 220 VAC. If it is not present, or if it only reads 110 VAC, then you may have a problem with your receptacle, or the cord itself. It could be that you are missing a portion of the voltage you need in order for all the elements to work. ALL the elements require 220 VAC to work. Some of the clocks (or timers) only use a portion of that source voltage as 110 VAC. That may be why your clock works, but none of the elements work. Please check the source voltage and double check that the wiring is correct BEFORE you go making another major purchase. You may just find that you will get that new appliance home and it won't work either. If you aren't savvy with electricity, you may enlist the services of a friend or neighbor that is. Otherwise, you will probably need to hire an electrician. Let me know if I can help.

What's wrong and how do I fix it?


The circuit breaker outside in the power panel for the stove has a bad breaker. It will be two breakers with their handles joined together by a pin so if one tripe it takes the other so 220 V is no longer present. When one, but not the other trips you only have 110 V. That's why the lights and clock still work but no heating elements.

I replaced the bake element but it will not heat


Have you checked the oven fuse, there should be one on the stove. To check the element power, remove the element from the back where its attached to the stove Remove the element from the wires (Skip this step if you are absolutely sure the element is not working). Attach your meter clips to the 2 wires (meter set set to at least 250Vac), place a piece of cardboard under the screws and meter clips to isolate them from touching any metal parts of the oven. Turn the meter on, set the oven thermostat to 350, you should have at least 220Vac, if you do the power is fine. Test element for continuity, and for a possible short.

No heat


The home's circuit breaker is not the problem if part of the stove / oven works. What is more likely to be the cause is a problem such as an "open" or "burned out" heating element or socket.
The control is "on" and sending power to the element. The control reports "Preheating" but since the heating element itself is no longer a complete circuit - it fails to heat. As mentioned above, it may be a problem with the socket that the heating element plugs into - but could be a problem with any wire between the control and the heating element.
I would suggest shuting off the circuit breaker for the stove / oven. Check to be sure it is off by turning on a heater that worked previously. If it stays off, you're ready to continue. Carefully inspect the heating element itself for damage. The surface of the heater should be uniform - smooth over the entire length. You may not be able yo view the back side of the heater - but you may be able to run your fingers gently over the surface to feel for damage. If damage is found on the surface, this would indicate that a new element is required. Once replaced, you should expect it to work again as new. If unable find damage, removal and inspection of both the oven's socket and heating element contact blades should be done. If found to be burned or damaged, replacement of the socket, heater or both may be needed.
Obtain replacement parts designed for you make and model stove / range. Contact an appliance repair service if unsure how to check / make these repairs.
I hope this helps & good luck!

Clock works fine, but surface elements do not light up or heat.


it sounds like you are only getting 110 volts to the stove.
have someone that knows a little about your breaker box. check the breakers
you may only need to wire it right or may need to add another breaker.
should be an relatively cheap fix.
good luck remember electricity bites!

My oven will not heat up and I have replaced the heating element already. What is my next option for repair?


So the element is new. I trust that the wiring terminals which attach to the element are okay. If so, it sounds as if you have no power going to the element. If this is the case, particularly if you turned the power off the replace the element and you have a digital timer, the timer is probably on auto. It needs to be set to manual for the oven to work. Turn the oven on and play with the controls on the timer. When the indicator light comes on the timer is on manual.
If this is not the problem it could be a fault with the oven thermostat controller.

My ge range has quit working. First the stove top (coils) failed to heat up (all at once); then about a week later the broiler coil failed to heat up shortly followed by the entire oven. The 'on' light...


The stove top is internally wired separately from the oven. Check that you don't have a faulty circuit breaker in your breaker panel. The oven is 240V which has two breakers ganged together. If only one side trips you can loose power to the heating elements but still have power to the control board (to light up ON).

Fes330 roper stove power to stove ...ok no fault codes on display normal "stove on" lites....ok normal appearance except no heat from 4 eyes and oven below


you have no heat at all? K, pull stove out and check how many volts you have should be 240. Your elements work off 240 if you only have 120 coming to stove the lights will work jujst not your heat. You should have a double pole 40amp breaker If you only have 120 change the breaker

Loud pop means electrical fault occured. There may be and internal fuse in the oven that blew. Probably blown oven element but certainly open circuit to timer. Remove back, check for supply to oven timer. If supply is there, the timer can be bypassed to allow for oven element to work as clock replacements are very expensive.

Electric Heating Element Not Heating stove


It's not a fuse, but a wire or heating element has burned up. Please TURN OFF the circuit breaker until you repair the problem, or at least until you know what the problem is! You say "in" the stove, so I'm assuming that you mean in the oven. Whichever element it is, whether it's in the oven or on the stovetop, just needs to be removed and checked for continuity with an ohmmeter. Quite frankly, if it IS an element, then you should see a burned-out spot somewhere on it that's pretty obvious. Then you just need to replace the element. If it's a wire, then you will need to repair the wire so that it safely makes contact with the element again. That process is a little more involved than just replacing an element, but let us know what you find. I can describe a wire-repair procedure if need be. ;)
