Either the burner has gone bad or the limiter on the burner.

You need to have the temp regulator replaced.

A pop & breaker tripped.retripped the breaker and neither the broiler nor the bake oven element in kenmore stove won't work


Sounds like you have a short in the wiring some place. A short will cause the breaker to blow. There are fuses in most electric stoves that blow as well usually back of the clock area.

My stove made this zapping noise, sparks came out the bottom and then tripped the breaker.


You need to have the stove looked at by a qualified appliance tech. The fact that the stove sparked and tripped the breaker indicates a short some where in the stove and it is very unsafe to use it. Leave the breaker off until you have the stove serviced.

No problem with hotpoint electric range til I went to start oven, breaker kept tripping & making a popping noise


From having a Hotpoint myself, I can think of 2 possibilities.
Obvious answer would be electrical problem. If it trips the breaker you probably have a loose wire or a bad plugin socket. Did you buy a new "pigtail" plugin socket or did you use an old one when you got the stove? They say to buy a new one each time. If this is your first problem with this then your circuit can probably handle the load but see if the circuit that tripped says 30 or 40 amps. Also check to see if anything else is on that circuit besides your stove. There shouldn't be anything else on circuit. You may even have a bad circuit breaker but that seems less likely.

Second possibility is a bad baking element at the bottom of stove or bad heating element on top. When mine went bad, it made loud popping noises and sparks were flying. After that, the rest of the stove worked but not the baking element. I had to replace it for about $50.

My bet is on a loose wire. Be careful and unplug everything before you check! See if it's not fully plugged into the socket and see if the 3 or 4 wires coming from the thick plug wire are all tightly connected to your stove.

My Fridgidaire FEF366BCC just popped my breaker


This sounds like a main control problem. More specifically like one of the relays is shorted. You will need to acess the main control and carefully inspect it for any burn marks. If you don't see any disconnect the main power supply wire going to the main control. Then plug it back in if it trips the breaker the problem is in the power cord or wiring from the cord junction to the main control. If it does not trip the breaker the problem is the main control.

Stove power is out


Turn off the power.
Remove the rear panel on the range.
Repair the broken wire at the wiring terminal.
Install a wiring strain clamp at the terminal block to prevent this from happening again.

Stove is tripping circuit breaker Two burners stopped working properly (only get slightly warm). Switched the coils to the other side and the other side is still working. Looked underneath and saw that...


if it is an old stove i would say have it serviced/checked over. if it is a newer stove i am guessing the circuit breaker predates it and is rated for the old stove therefore you will need to have a larger circuit breaker installed (by a licenced electrician)

Circuit breaker popping when stove top/ oven is on


thats how fires start when fuses keep blowing. Just use one at a time. Its probably over loading the fuse you may need a bigger fuse block. Call a local handy man if you havent already
