Question about Kitchen Ranges
Inspect the outlet into which the stove is plugged. The plug should fit into the outlet snug and secure but it may have loosened. Unplug the electric stove and plug it back in to be certain that a good connection has been made.
Examine the clock of your electric stove. If it does not show any time, the outlet should be checked.
Take a small lamp or other electric appliance you know works well and plug it into the outlet where you usually plug in the stove.
If the appliance does not work, the outlet is to blame and may need to be replaced.
Checking the oven settingTurn on the oven and set the temperature to 350 degrees F. Return after 10 minutes to check for any heat. If the oven does not heat up at all, turn it off.
Ensure that the oven portion of the electric stove has not inadvertently become set to the self cleaning cycle. Cancel the self-cleaning cycle and additionally undo any manual lock-out which may be set for the self cleaning cycle to start.
Check for a display that may indicate a delay mode. In the alternative, a cooking cycle may have become set and is therefore barring you from using the oven at this time. Examine the timer function and ensure that no cycle is currently programmed into the system of the electric stove. Most electric stoves offer the option of a manual timer override.
Push the button for the override and repeat steps 1 and 2. If neither the oven did not heat up, you have isolated the problem to be either the thermostat or the wiring.
Checking the thermostat and wiringLook for a bake selector switch. Unless your electric stove features this switch, it is controlled by a thermostat. Unplug the stove and troubleshoot the thermostat by adjusting it incrementally to hotter or higher temperature.
Turn on the oven and set the temperature once again to 350 degrees F. Return after 10 minutes to check for any heat. If the oven does not heat up at all, turn it off again.
Replace fuse and retest the operation of the electric stove.
This should fix the problem on your electric stove and it should work fine.
