No, it appears to be a 240v Range

I looked up repair parts and all the power cables are 240v - 40 AMP

Frigidaire stove model CFEF372EC3 Ser #NF60720192


Things to check : Thermostat, heating element and the circuit breaker for the stove at the power panel. If the stove has lights and the clock works, there is a 100 % chance the circuit breaker is at fault. There are 2 breakers with joined trip handles. One of those breakers has tripped without tripping the other which stops 20 volts but not 120 volts that the clock and light run off of. You can use a multimeter to check the element for continuity. If there is continuity then check for the presence of voltage at the element terminals. None indicates a bad thermostat.

Burners work, no display, no oven light, can't turn on oven, buttons don't function


Check your circuit breakers, they should be double breakers. Probably 30 to 50 AMP. Sometimes one side of a double breaker will trip or fail. This will give the appliance 120 volts instead of 220. The "leg" of the 220 volt circuit that is out might control the stove's display, and the oven would not work on 120 volts. If the burners aren't as hot as they should be, or are slow in heating up it would also indicate a faulty breaker If it's not the breakers it's likely a problem in the stove circuitry.

The only thing working on my stove is the clock???


I had this problem the other day with a customer stove. It turned out his outlet had a bad connection and the prongs were fried. His stove was getting less than 120 volts where as it needs 240 volts for anything aside from the clock to run.The solution was to replace the wall receptacle and the cord to the stove.To see if you have this problem start by unplugging the stove to see if the prongs on the plug are burnt. If they look clean then this is not your problem.
Check your breaker box, there are two breakers for your stove outlet. Sometimes one of them could be tripped off causing this same problem. Reset both breakers for your stove regardless (If resetting your breaker fixes the problem but it trips again, have your stove inspected).Hopefully this helps

I want a 100 watt electric stove with oven to put in my bunkhouse so I don't have to add 220. I don't even know if there is such a thing.


I believe what you mean to say is: you want an electric stove that works with 115-120 volt and not 220-230 volt. Yes there are stoves available that work from 115-120 volt but they are vbery limited in availability. also, do you mean a true oven or just a stove top burner ? stove top burners are fairly easy to find in the regular 115v plug-in style at hardware stores or through catalog order (usually not at appliance stores). If you are looking for an oven with 115v plug-in ability, it will be a bit herder to find.

Fes330 roper stove power to stove ...ok no fault codes on display normal "stove on" lites....ok normal appearance except no heat from 4 eyes and oven below


you have no heat at all? K, pull stove out and check how many volts you have should be 240. Your elements work off 240 if you only have 120 coming to stove the lights will work jujst not your heat. You should have a double pole 40amp breaker If you only have 120 change the breaker

Jenn Air stove wired backwards


The fan is likely 120-volt fan, and swapping the wire likely put 220 across the fan. Did the fan seem to rev up very fast? The control is also likely 120-volt, and that too had 220 applied to it.

Give me the model number, and I'll find what parts you need to replace

GE profile stove, Gas-electric


All oven elements are 115/130 VAC. Stoves use 220/240 so that you can use both the burners and Oven at the same time. Since the burners are Gas, then 220/240 VAC isn't needed.

(Note: 220 is simply dual 110 hot leads with a common ground)

The indicator lights and clock on our glass top slide in stove work, but the burners and oven do not heat


From what you are describing, the power to your stove is incorrect. The diagram indicates the voltages that should be present at the receptacle, I suspect one of the 110 volt legs is bad at the receptacle or circuit breaker. The clock operates on the good 110 volt leg. The burners need both 120 volt legs to be good because the burners and oven need 220 volts to work.

Hotpoint glass top stove

Electric stove lights work but nothing else


sounds like the range is not getting 240 volts. When it only gets 120 volts lights will work but no heating element will. You need a volt meter and make sure that you have 240 volts across the black and red wires. From black to white and from red to white you should have 120. If you find you have a voltage problem you need to check your fuse box. you could have a fuse out or a circuit breaker can also be bad
