Oven and Stove top don't heat up but indicator lights on

My oven and stove top do not heat up but the indicator light comes on so I am assuming there is power. Is it the fuses? It worked fine up until this weekend March 15th 2008.

    Thanks for the tip but that didn't work.

    I tried the plug/outlet on the stove and there was no power there either. Could it be the fuses in the range or something else inside?



    Thanks

    I took the back off and the porcelan block where the power source connects to the oven was fried. Went to a local supplier who said if the connections were loose it could arch and fry the connection. Luckily this was one of my rental properties and not my home. The new part was $10 and took about 5 minutes to install. Work fine now.

There may be power but is it enough power??? if electric oven oid check you fuse box/ circuit breakers and physically reset the double breaker controlling the stove, perhaps one leg of power has dropped out

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.

I have the fisher paykel pepper electric stove top and oven at home. the stove is working just fine, but below it the oven turns on but it doesnt heat up. what should i do?


When you say that the oven turns on I assume that the oven indicator light is working. If this is so there will be only two likely causes for the oven not working.
Oven element is faulty - check by performing continuity test;
Wiring at oven element terminals burnt off - check visually.
If you are handy carry out the above. If not, call a repairman.

We have a GE gas oven/stove top and the stove top is lighting as well as the broiler but we can not get the oven to heat up. What do you suggest we try?


i just moved and our stove in the new place doesnt bake things right. it seems that the top coil doesnt come on. its very difficult to bake anything. seems to come up to temp for pre heating, but only the bottom coil comes on. If you put it on broil, then the top coil gets hot. that works fine. tired of burning pizzas and biscuits. can anyone help with a cheap fix? dont have alot of cash.

Kenmore ultrabake lights up when stove top is on but wont heat up


Hard to know...First thing I'd check is the power supply to the unit.  Turn off both breakers.  Check wiring all the way through for tightness.  Turn both breakers on.  Next, you'll need to check the elements for continuity...with the power off.

Oven stopped working while cooking a meal


it sounds like it burnt one of your main wires in the back of range. by turning a knob on you are getting a feed back. turn the power off remove back panel take a visual check of your wiring.
