No, it appears to be a 240v Range

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

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.

How do I know if my stove is three fase. I am in Brazil and the here power is 220v. Would you help please?


Your oven is 2 phase 220 volt not sure about foreign electrical service.The stove requires 2 phase electric service,each leg impute can be no more than 135 volts.It requires 2 pole 60 amp service with no less than a 8 gauge 3 wire service line with ground.The pigtail on the stove is as follows,black wire 120 volt leg red wire the other 120 volt leg the white wire is the neutral leg,(which is sometimes run to the ground block which incorrect but will work) the green wire is ground.

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.

My heating in my maytag stove burnt out will that stop the glass top heating units from heating up


No. Sounds more like a power problem. Check your circuit breakers for the stove. You shoud be getting 240 volts to the stove. If you are only getting 120 volts the clock and lights will still work but no heating.

Stove burners don't get hot enough and the oven takes a long time to preheat


sounds like its wired incorrectly .. the stove operates on two phases of 120 volts each .. together they form a 240 volt supply .. if its wired incorrectly you may be getting only 120 volts .. it will then take 4 times as long to heat .. have an electrician or someone skilled in that sort of thing, check the voltage at the plug .. and make sure the pig tail is attached correctly to the stove .. check the circuit breakers .. there is one for each phase .. but if one is tripped then some functions wont work at all unless there is a second problem (shorted phase) in which case it will work but have the 4 times as long to heat problem and it will trip the circuit breaker immediatly .. ..

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.

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
