Hi, This model uses 240 volts for the heat in both the oven and top burners. It uses 120 volts for the lights and clock. The problem is that one 'leg' of you power is gone. The most likely place to look first is the circuit breaker or fuse box, this may sound strange but 1/2 of the breaker can trip. Find the breaker for the range and turn it completely off and back on. Test to see if it works. If that fails to work, you will need to test at the wall outlet for 240 volts, Not just each side of the outlet to ground but both hot sides to each other. You will need a volt meter capable of reading 250 volts AC. If full 240 volts is present there the problem is inside the back panel, unplug the range. Follow the cord to where it connects. There will be a black a white and a red wire at this terminal block. The red wire is the one that would be bad. Do not attempt this repair beyond the circuit breaker unless you are comfortable around high voltage.

You most likely have a problem with the temprature contol knob and the thermostat.

This is all contained in one unit. The controller has a long metal "wire" that sends the temp info to the controller. The "wire" ends inside the oven.

This whole assemblage needs to be replaced.

I would need the type of stove, gas or electric age and model to give you replacement directions

WE have a GE Stove top Range. The burners aren't


If you have power to the stove as in the oven light works and the clock works but the burners and oven will not work you only have 120 volts coming to the stove. The stove requires 240 volts for the burners and oven to work. Check the service panel for a blown fuse. There will be 2 fuses in the fuse holder. One of them is blown. If that is not the case then one of the wires has come loose either in the service panel or in the outlet behind the stove. Use a multimeter to check the input voltage at the outlet.

Frigidaire Oven - lights are on but no heat from oven or burners


You must check your incoming power for 220 volts. You have lost one leg of your power. Either a bad breaker or bad wall outlet or bad range cord.

Jenn-Air stove locked


After the lock indicator light goes out, move the door lock lever to the left. The oven door can now be opened. Turn the selector and temperature knobs from clean to off AFTER THE DOOR IS UNLOCKED. If the temperature knob is turned to off BEFORE the door is unlocked, the door will not open. Forcing the lock will damage the lock mechanism. If this should happen, return the temperature knob back to CLEAN, unlock the door, THEN turn the temperature knob off.

Stove top pilot light


I have a GE Gas Stove XL44 the stove top buners don't light by themselves without manual lighting. When I turn on the buner knob the buner doesn't click. Also I used my self- cleaning oven for the first time and stopped it before the time was up after that is when the stove top buners wouldn't light by theirselves.
