I replaced the heating element in the oven which is an Electrolux. After turning the power back on the stove appeared to work. I set the clock, then turned on the oven. As I began to set the temp, I heard a pop sound and the unit completely shut down. I removed the element and reinstalled. Turned the power on again and the unit popped. Any thoughts?

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.
i believe this oven was designed to reach a set temp and then interm shutdown to keep that set temp..If oven elements turn back on when temp is raised higher than previous temp ..then there is a good chance its working properly.this is a saftey feature to keep elements on stove from overheating..
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!
yes but be sure to turn the breaker off or unplug the stove cause the element has power on it on one side all the time and will short out when you take it out. you should see a screw on the plate that the element is attached to in the back of the oven that is how you get it out..
It sounds like you only have one side of the 220v current coming into the range. I suggest checking the outlet feeding the range for proper power. The problem could actually be in your circuit breaker, only sending power via one of the conductors.
the broiler came on automatically??? not a sensor issue. sounds as if you have a broken wire perhaps, or a faulty control panel energizing the broil element w/o being prompted to. does it say its broiling when element comes on??
It's either a problem in the board or one of the elements is shorted to ground. Most likely one of the relays on the board is bad so the board would have to be replaced. If you have a multimeter you can check this. Unplug the range and take the back panel off to get to the elements. Take one wire off of each of the elements. Set meter to ohms to check resistance. Put one meter lead on one end of the element (where you disconnected the wire) and the other lead to ground. If that shows resistance then the element is shorted to ground. Do this with both elements. If neither element is grounded then replace the oven control board.
