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.

I have kenmore c880 model stove , both oven and stove are not heating up after shifting to new house...any tips to get it resolved? Only oven light is working.


Make sure there is 220 volts at the wall socket where you plug the oven into. A faulty circuit breaker in the power panel on your house will only let 110 volts get to the oven so the lights and timers will work but not the heating elements.

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.

Broiler element doesn't heat


https://www.repairclinic.com/RepairHelp/How-To-Fix-A-Range-Stove-Oven/18---/Oven-won-t-turn-on-
Oven Won Turn on

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. Depending on the manufacturer of the element, you will normally read between 19 ohms and 115 ohms

My whirlpool dryer comes on and runs good but it wont get hot can you tell me whats the problem


Hello there and welcome to fixya there are several things that could make this dryer not heat up
Here are the most common things

Thermal Fuse

If the dryer doesn\'t heat, but the drum
turns, check the thermal fuse(s). The thermal fuse protects the dryer
from overheating and helps to prevent fires. If the thermal fuse is
blown, it will have to be replaced.




Enter your model number to see parts for your dryer.

Help me find my model number


Gas Valve Solenoid

The gas valve has two or more electric
solenoids which open the valve to let the gas flow into the burner
assembly. If the dryer doesn\'t heat one or more of the solenoids may be
defective. If the igniter glows for 90 seconds but the burner flame
doesn\'t light, replace these coils as a set.


Dryer Igniter


If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the igniter might
be burned out. Check the igniter for continuity with an ohm meter. Dryer
igniters burn out over time, similar to a light bulb.


Heating Element

The heating element on an electric dryer can
burn out over time. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the element should be
checked for continuity. The heating element cannot be repaired and must
be replaced if defective.


Heating Element Assembly

the heating element assembly on an electric
dryer can burn out over time. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the element
assembly should be checked for continuity. The heating element assembly
cannot be repaired and must be replaced if defective.

Flame Sensor



Gas dryers have a flame sensor to detect the
heat given off by the flame. If the dryer doesn\'t heat, the flame sensor
might be defective. Check the flame sensor for continuity. This is not
as common as a burned out igniter or thermal fuse.


High Limit Thermostat


Although not common, if the dryer doesn\'t
heat the high limit thermostat can be defective. It can be checked for
continuity. If the thermostat is "open" the dryer doesn\'t heat.


Cycling Thermostat




The cycling thermostat regulates the
temperature of the air in the dryer. If the dryer doesn\'t heat it may be
caused by a defective cycling thermostat. This is not common.


Main Control Board

The main control board is normally not at
fault when the dryer doesn\'t heat. Check all of the other components in
this troubleshooting guide before replacing the main control board. The
main control board cannot be tested easily and must be replaced if it is
defective.


Timer
The timer is normally not at fault if the
dryer doesn\'t heat. In many situations where timers are replaced they
end up being returned. Check all of the more common components in this
troubleshooting guide before replacing the timer

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

Try unplugging the oven and let sit for 10 min. This will reset the curcuit board and reboot the electronics. You may have to pull out the stove o get to the cord.
