Oven fuse blows - Nothing works

The 30 amp fuse for stove keeps blowing
Nothing works.
There's no display, no lights, the ranges don't work and neither does the oven
As soon as it's plugged in it blows.
I looked in the back and I cannot see anything obvious (ie where the wires might have shorted out)

    Thanks, good idea.

    Unfortunately I have not had a chance to try it yet, but it sounds like it will definately help.

    Sometimes you really need another opinion.

Try lifting the stove top assy and checking wires under main top, leading to the elements them selves??? if tis tripping and not allowing to reset its gotta be an obvious short. isit hard wired directly to stove or into a 220 cord and plug???id look again, perhaps remove entire back panel and have someone trip on the breaker you might see where it flashes as it trips off

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.

OVEN CONTROLS AND OVEN DONT WORK. RANGE TOP WORKS FINE.


Hello,

We're having the same problem. Oven light works, but plug by oven light switch does not. I changed the screw in fuse (15 Amp) in the oven, although it was blown, it didn't fix the problem.
I will be checking the double breaker on the electric panel tonight, making sure it's getting the full 220v, and if that is good, I will be looking at checking and replacing the clock.
Hope this helps.

We have a 40amp hot wired stove but now we just bought a frigidaire fef366dce with a 50amp. Will the new stove work well if hot wired to the 40amp


Hi,
The new stove may work but you may also blow the breaker/ fuse which ever you have... make sure to leave the 40 amp fuses or breaker in the box as the wiring will not be heavy enough to support a larger amp. fuse or breaker... that will start a fire!
You may find that you just cannot run all of the burners and the oven or broiler at the same time.

Ran Self Cleaning - Display went blank & Oven Door stayed locked


You need thermostat limiter #8300802. It is on the back of the stove behind some sheet metal towards the top. With shipping this part is about $39.00. But don't waste your money. If you replace it, it will burn out again! I am currently trying to find a way for either a class action lawsuit or a total recall. Kitchenaid/Whirpool is well aware of this problem. A $1500.00 stove and it won't self clean.

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

Premier 30 inch gas stove oven does not light


do you hear any clicking when you try to start the oven portion of the range? if not lets try this, open the lower drawer so you can see the burner bar and mechanism for lighting the bake bar. as your watching the mechanism turn on the oven (nothing should happen as per your issue) while oven is on try lighting one of the top burners, any one will do wanna check if that lites the spark and in turn lites the oven pilot.if that does infact work you have a bad spark switch for the oven control
