Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Oven trouble I was baking on 500 and I looked in my oven and the coil was white hot and sparking - I turned the oven off, waited a couple of minutes and then turned it back on to show my husband...now it won't turn on. Does anybody know what just happened - did I have some kind of electrical short? Many thanks for any help you can offer, Daphne in CT

    terrific! Is this a part that we can order and install ourselves or do we need to hire a repair company?

    Again, thank you for your help!

    no you can do it just go to any appliances repair store with your model number and get the bake element most of the time you just remove the two screws from the element inside the oven after shutting off the power of course and pull it forward un plug the wires put them on your new element and slide it back in some times you have to remove the back panel for this but rarely

My gas oven won't ignite, takes several tries to ignite it.


All gas appliances have a thermal cut out this will shut the gas off if the flame goes out the down side is when the thermal cut out becomes faulty it can shut the gas of when you are using the cooker the only fix is to replace the thermal cut out

Feature not available


I had the same problem with a new kitchenaid range which they have agreed to replace after 1 month. Oven shut off a couple times while baking and feature not available displayed when trying to turn on oven again. I tried starting clean cycle and waiting a couple minutes for element to heat then cancelled clean cycle. Oven worked fine after this but this shouldnt be a solution, obviously something not wired right.

The bake element (in over) will no longer get hot, should the element itself be replace or could it be something else? Range model RS675PXEQ0


It does sound like the bake element is probably the problem. Many ovens turn on the broil element with 120 volts to even out the heat in the oven or pulse the broil element. This may be why the oven is warm but not baking.

Hard to restart when hot. Easy start when cold, runs smooth always. Will restart OK after waiting 10 minutes. Help!


if the spark plugs are black - adjust 2 air screws on the carbs (2 or 2,5 turns out.
OR - sync the carbs
OR - change the air filter

Oven turns on but wont heat up


Hello Jacob J - Try resetting the range by unplugging it or flipping the breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective and oven does not bake or broil contact a professional to move forward accurately. Range could possibly be experiencing an issue with a wiring failure, EOC, sensor probe and/or faulty elements which would need further diagnosing.

All 4 stove burner coils only work partially


You should check electricity coming to the range. On the back of the range you will find small square cover which cover power cord connections. Be very careful not be shot by electricity. It should be 240V(between red and black wire) and 120V (between red and white and also black and white wire). If it is than you have a shortage or some broken wire inside the stove.

Amana Convection oven not controlling temp


I have just checked the baking guide in the manual and have found that it may not be us after all. (Maybe this is why they telll us to read the whole manual. Well, I never have) According to the cooking time for Baking, the range is very extensive. For example, an angel cake at 350 could take from 28-50 minutes, buscuits at 375-400 could take 8-16 minutes, layer cakes at 350-375 could take 25-40 minutes, pound cakes at 325-350 could take 45-70 minutes and fresh pies at 400-450 could take 35-60 minutes. Basically, the baking directions on the box means absolutely nothing to use Amana oven owners. We have no choice but to cook our food or baked goods until they are cooked, whenever that may be. :) Linda

Taking way too long to heat


Usually when an oven is slow to heat, it is because of a bad element. You can look at the upper (broil) and lower(bake) and see if they appear to have any major burn marks on them, It may just look like something spilled on it untill you look closer or try to clean it off. if you do not find any obvious problems, turn the oven on and wait a fem minutes, then see if the bake element is glowing. Also look at the broil element, they should both be glowing at least a little orange. Compare how it works to the other oven that works properly. If only one of your elements is glowing, either you have a bad element (which is usually apparent on visual inspection) or a bad relay board that controls the element. The element is easy to change, onlt a couple screws and 2 wires (turn off the breaker first!!), the relay board is pricey, and a pain in the tookas. if you decide to guess, try the element first. Hope this is at least a little helpful.
