Hello,

what this indicate is that there has been a bring up/meant wire from the wire connection from the main power supply (from the wall) connected to the burner. there are two of solving this problem bellow

put off the power supply from the wall or were ever the power supply is from to put of the the element then two unplug the wire from the wall the unscrew the range the trace the wire down to element (heat provider) from the back properly then test the round the wires and replace the weak wire among them.

You can get a wire replacement from any technician store around your local area but if you are unable to get if your self then you will have to invite a technician to visit your range in order to avoid more damage on it.

thank you.

I have a hotpoint stove and the burner in the oven won't come on, the heat element lights up but the burner won't light whats wrong with my oven? susan


Even though your igniter is lighting up it probably needs replaced. They become weak and wont pull enough amps to open the gas valve.

Oven burner seems to not shut off. For a while burner started to spark and even put out a small flame. Is this a depper problem than just changing the burner. Oven is 14 years old.


I don't think so ofcourse there could be something else that could be damaged because of the defective element. They start to develop hot spots whent there is food splashes that get on the electrical element and that splash is the area where most of the heat builds up till the resistive element burns a whole and that's when the sparking starts.

Oven won't light - electronic ignition oven


Hi, it could be your, electric heating element and oven burner gas valve. both are located in oven burner compartment, remove last bottom panel, locate oven burner, the valve that feed gas to burner, has two wires connected to it, that's oven valve could be faulty, also look on side oven burner, you will see electrical heating element, could also be faulty, it's better to replace both oven valve and element, that's the most common problem, but first check oven thermostat, that's knob you turn to light oven, if thermostat o/k, then it's your oven valve or heating element, (used to ignite oven burner) or call a mechanic, good luck.

Oven lights, but temp does not get above 100


The gas burner is broken. There is an upper burner and a lower burner. In-order for both burners to turn on, both must be working to let the gas turn on. If one burner element is out the oven wont get hot just warm.

Replacing oven burner element, the lower element, for a GE stove


(I think it is 50 watts or volts??)
Most electric ranges are supplied with 220 volts - this is, especially at 60 Hz, deadly. You were lucky this time.
If the wires are not welded onto the element contacts, they might be so-called 'quick-disconnects' that pull straight off of blades that are part of the elelment.  
You probably haven't hurt the range with the momentary short circuit since the chassis of the range is connected to neutral or ground so you just gave your breaker a workout. BTW, I have had to replace late breakers after they tripped. They wouldn't stay reset any more even after the problem was removed from the circuit. Don't be surprised if yours doesn't stay reset; it may not be a fault causing it.
