The problem causing the element to not heat would be either in the control, the element, the sensor on the element or the element itself.

From my experience on this model the element is the most likely suspect. They use what is called a ribbon burner on this and they will typically fail before the control or wiring.

To check you would have to move the range out. Turn off the power, disconnect the screws holding the top on to access the element. Be careful with the glass top and the seal around the sides.

Once you access the element you can make an ohm check on the element terminals. Terminal to terminal should be under 100 ohms if over 100 then the element is bad. If this checks good you may need to do a power up test on the board, This is not recommended if you are not an expert as there will be live 240 volts.

How do I access the control panel so I can replace the fuse?


It depends on the type of oven. On countertop models, remove the outside cover. On over the range units, remove the control panel. You may have to remove the air deflector on the top first in order to gain access to the control panel screws.

I have a built in wall oven whirlpool gold mod.gbs309pvsoo controls turn on but no heat from element


Could be element could be Hi limit thermostat could be control. In that order. First step is turn breaker off and remove element to make sure the wires are still connected to back of element. Visually inspect element very good for burns or a white powder residue signally the element burned up. Next step is harder, need to remove the oven and take off back panel, there you will find the hi temp thermostat. Check for continuity, if none replace.

This an old range with side by side ovens which work perfectly. the 4 burners slide out, all 4 elements will heat, but do not get to a high heat, is there a control which affects all of the elements ...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This sounds like your missing 1/2 of your input power. Go to the main CB panel and cycle the Range CB to OFF by pressing it hard to off and then back on. Test your burners again.

Still have the problem? Start looking in the area of the house to oven power connection / terminal block in the back of the oven for signs of HOT / burned terminals.

Still have the problem... Last check is to check wiring in the main controls area.

Without your model number this a VERY generic response but when all burners present the same symptom it is usually input power or control related.

If you respond with a model number I wil see what I can find that may help you troubleshoot your Oven.

Thank for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

No heat from Grill or Oven NNCD757.


Very unlikely both elements are faulty together, so switch off, and remove cover to gain access to the wiring. Check for a break very possibly in the neutral wire which is common to both grill and oven. Keep on following the wires and you will find the break.

Cleaning ge profile convection microwave


HI HERE THE STEPS TO DISASSEMBLEA gas range cabinet comes apart very easily. Here's how:
Step 1: Take out the screws that hold the panels, and pull off the control knobs. On the control panel the knobs are friction-fit; pull them straight off. Some knobs may have setscrews in the base of the knobs; back out these screws using a screwdriver or Allen wrench and pull off the knobs.

Step 2: Remove the back service panel on the control panel by backing out a series of screws around the edge of the panel. To remove the front panel, take off the control knobs and remove a series of mounting screws that hold the decorative panel to the frame. These screws may be hidden by molding or trim; pry off the molding or trim with a screwdriver, or take out several screws.

Step 3: To gain access to the burner assemblies, remove the burner grates and then the top of the range. The entire range top should either lift up and off the range or open up and back on hinges. The oven door can usually be removed by pulling it straight up off the hinges on both sides of the door. Some hinges have a latch that must be unlocked before the door can be removed.

Step 4: If the surface light of the range burns out, remove retaining screws and panels as necessary to gain access to the bulb. Replace the burned-out bulb with a new one of the same type and wattage; check the ends of the old bulb for this information. Then replace any retaining panels.

Step 5: If the oven light burns out, unscrew it and remove it from the oven. Replace the burned-out bulb with a new one of the same wattage, made for oven use.
