Question about Kitchen Ranges
I have a tappan electric stove. It was working fine on Tuesday, used the burners and the oven. Wednesday when I went to cook, none of the burners are heating up and neither is the oven. I checked my fuse box to the house and flippd the switch and still nothing. When I turn the burners on the red light turns on so there is power going to it. I am at a loss. PLEASE HELP!!!!!Ashley
You need to check the connection at the back of the unit that hooks to the house power. Turn off breakers or pull fuses before checking. It sounds like you only have half of the voltage you need. One of the wire connectors may be burnt or you may have a problem with the house wiring.

Before I begin: ALWAYS CHECK AND DOUBLE-CHECK THE CIRCUIT IS TURNED OFF AND UNPLUGGED BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DIAGNOSE OR REPAIR ELECTRIC STOVES.
It sounds like an issue with the oven control board - the logic board that displays the clock and has the buttons on it. I've had this happen twice with my Tappan electric stove. There are two circuit boards in this control panel, spaced about a third of an inch apart, one is mounted on top of the other. Electric arching occurred from the board with the relays on it to the board with the clock. This caused the solder under one relay to melt away and burnt up a solder pad. I was able to clean and resolder the board - and bridge the burnt pad. It's working now, but I had to put thick electric insulation between the two boards.
