If you switch oven on it trips main power. what can cause that


Probably close to 50 things could cause that, but here are a few of the most common: Bare wire in a harness of the oven, causing a short-circuit in the line. Faulty plug on the power cord. Outlet in the wall is damaged. Loose wire in the outlet box, causing a dead short. Bad wire between the outlet box and the main breaker box. Weak breaker, or a breaker that isn't heavy enough to handle the load of the oven. (especially, if you just bought a new oven, it may need a larger breaker to handle start up.) Use a fused multi-meter (voltmeter) to check for these issues, and do not try to fix it if you are not familiar with electrical work. It could cause a fire, or give you a deadly shock.

I have kenmore c880 model stove , both oven and stove are not heating up after shifting to new house...any tips to get it resolved? Only oven light is working.


Make sure there is 220 volts at the wall socket where you plug the oven into. A faulty circuit breaker in the power panel on your house will only let 110 volts get to the oven so the lights and timers will work but not the heating elements.

What size circuit breaker for rbs305pr oven?


If you're connected to a 240V source, a two-pole 40 amp circuit is required. If connected to a 208V source, a two pole 30 amp circuit is required.

But the limiting factor here will be the wire size. If installed with #10 copper wire, 30 amp will be maximum. If a #8 copper (or #6 aluminum) 40 amp is maximum. See the link below for details.

We have a GE electric stove with a JDP 39 oven element which has burned out. How do we get the bottom heating element out to replace it?


UNPLUG the stove or turn off its breaker.

Inside the oven, trace the element back to the rear wall. There should be one screw on each side next to where the element goes through the rear wall. Unscrew that screw on each side and pull the element toward you - it'll come easily, bring its wiring behind it (this is why there must be NO power to the stove!). Detach the wiring from the element... DO NOT allow the wires to pull back through the wall, or you'll have to pull the whole range out to retrieve them.

To install the new element, just reverse that procedure.

Moved Kenmore electric oven (2 yrs old) and now neither the oven or stovetop heat up. The clock is set.


This may sound silly, but go check your circuit breaker and flip it completely off and then back on. Sometimes it does not completely trip and your clock only needs 120 volts to work which you have, but the heating coils need 240 volts. If you have an older house that has a fuse panel instead of circuit breakers you could have a blown fuse.

Oven not heating properly


most common problems:
1. calrod unit not working(heating element) easy replacement
2. breaker tripped.(sometimes a double breaker will only trip one of the circuit breakers so you end up with half power)
good luck

Oven won't heat, display out, gas burners on stove


Hello, you will probably need to pull it out and put it on something. Make sure the breaker is off to it before you test it. There is a thermostat in the very back that could be bad,check for continuity on that. Also check for continuity on the bake and broil element terminals itself,even though you have checked it to ground. If those check good,then the problems is in the control board.
Thanks
