Not til you fix the oven issue check the range wiring for possible problems or the control for the element in question

We have an electric jenn air stove,Has 2 coil burners on left, two flat on right, with a vent in middle.The oven istaking a long time to heat up and to cook. Now the bottom coil will not shut off.


Unplug the stove from the outlet or turn off the circuit breaker to the stove at the service panel.

Remove the elements (coils) in question; (The coil elements pull out of their socket connections) Do they show any visible signs of blistering or breakage? Replace them.

No visible signs of damage, use either an analog or digital multimeter to perform a continuity test.

A continuity test will determine if a continuous electric path is present in the element or not. If continuity is present, the coil is okay. If there is no continuity, the electrical path has been broken and the coil will have to be replaced.

Set your meter dial to the Ohms scale, lowest setting.

If using an analog meter, you'll first have to calibrate the meter by touching the tester's probes together and adjust the needle to zero.
(You don't have to calibrate a digital multimeter the same way you would an analog meter, for obvious reasons)

Proceed with the test by placing one of the meter's probes on one end of the coil element's terminal and the other meter probe on the other terminal end of the coil. If you get a reading of 0-50 Ohms of resistance, the coil is okay.

If there is no needle movement on the analog meter or no change in the digital read out, the coil is burned out and will need to be replaced.

The oven pilot to our gas stove was out, while the stove top pilots were still burning. When trying to light the oven pilot, it would light but not stay lit. Model #CG31200BDW


have you done testing and checking the unit, it seems that your problem was on the thermal fuse, and this part need to be replaced if you find it burned or busted

My stove top and wall oven are connected to one


Assuming you replaced the fuse with the same size, yes, both are reasonably safe.

I have a Jenn-Air JES9900 range and the right front burner is not working but the hot indicator light remains on. Is this just a switch that needs to be replaced?


make this test and fix it. God bless you

Surface Element Switch

If the surface element won't work, and there is another element of the same size on the stove, try switching the elements. If it still won't work, the surface element switch is probably defective. The surface element switch can't be tested or repaired, it will have to be replaced.

Surface Element Board

If a surface element won't work the surface element board might be defective. Each burner is switched on and off with the help of a relay on the surface element board. If one or more relays has failed the surface element won't work. If two or more burners fail at the same time, this is likely the problem. If only one surface element won't work and the element itself checks out to be good, the surface element board might be defective.

Coil Surface Element

If the surface element won't work, the coil surface element might be burned out. Most coil surface elements can be pulled out of their socket and checked with an Ohm meter for continuity. If the surface element won't work, check to see if there is any visible damage to the coils. Also, check to be sure the element is pushed all the way into the socket.

Radiant Surface Element

The most common cause when the surface element won't work is the radiant surface element itself. The radiant surface element - or heating element - can burn out similar to a light bulb. If the surface element won't work and it doesn't have continuity, it will need to be replaced. The radiant surface element is not repairable.

Solid Surface Element

If the surface element won't work, and the stove has the solid surface element type of heat, it's likely that the solid surface element itself has burned out. The solid surface element works very similarly to other surface elements - inside there is a heating element that glows when electricity is applied to it. As it gets hotter, the heat is transferred to the solid surface element

Element Receptacle and Wire Kit

If a surface element won't work, there may be a problem in the element receptacle. The surface element plugs onto a terminal block type receptacle. Over time the terminals in the receptacle can have a bad connection and overheat. Look at the receptacle contacts with a flashlight. If the terminals look burnt you will need to replace the element receptacle. also make sure the element prongs are clean and not burnt. If the prongs are burnt bad the element will need to be replaced also.

Loose or Burnt Wire Connection

If surface element won't work, there might be a burnt wire supplying power to the surface element. Sometimes the wire supplying power to the element burns out right near the element itself. Check for this by just looking at the wires leading to the element. If they're burned out it is usually easy to spot.


Incoming Power Problem

Although not as common, if the surface element won't work it is possible that the appliance is not receiving proper voltage. Electric ranges require 220 volts of alternating current. If for some reason the appliance is receiving significantly less, the surface element won't work. Check for proper voltage using a volt meter at the socket where the appliance plugs in.

The coil in my oven caught on fire


You will need to replace the element, If it was just the lower bake element, it is a very easy repair, two screws and two wire connectors. UNPLUG the stove FIRST!!

OVEN WANT HEAT PROPERLY FOOD DOSEN'T GET DONE


It could be that your lower element is burnt out or ready to burn out. They last 3-5 years depending how much you use your stove.
Disconnect POWER to the stove, remove the screws holding the lower element to the back of the inside of the stove, pull out carefully and remove the 2 screws holding the wires on. Check the element with an ohm meter or take it to a store that sells replacements ($25) and they may check it for you.

My gas oven, Kenmore model 362.7271192, will not work. The stove works just fine, but the oven will not get hot or light. How do I relight the pilot light, I don't even know if I am looking at the right...


There is not a pilot on this range. There is an ignitor and safety valve. Sometimes you can see a burned out ignitor and sometimes you will have to use a meter to check the voltage and continuity of the ignitor and valve coil.

Tappan Oven overheats!!



If you have electronic controls, you'll need either the temperature probe (about $60.00) or the clock (about $150.00). You can test the temperature probe from behind the machine. It should read about 1080 ohms at room temperature. if the probe is good, replace the clock.

If you have mechanical oven controls, you need a new thermostat. Is the too high temp consistent? (i.e. runs at 375F +/- 25F?) If so, you can usually adjust the thermostat **** to read closer to the actual temperature.

Electric Heating Element Not Heating stove


It's not a fuse, but a wire or heating element has burned up. Please TURN OFF the circuit breaker until you repair the problem, or at least until you know what the problem is! You say "in" the stove, so I'm assuming that you mean in the oven. Whichever element it is, whether it's in the oven or on the stovetop, just needs to be removed and checked for continuity with an ohmmeter. Quite frankly, if it IS an element, then you should see a burned-out spot somewhere on it that's pretty obvious. Then you just need to replace the element. If it's a wire, then you will need to repair the wire so that it safely makes contact with the element again. That process is a little more involved than just replacing an element, but let us know what you find. I can describe a wire-repair procedure if need be. ;)
