Question about Microwave Ovens

I need to replace the existing 3-phase (with 4 prongs) lead on my (old) defy 621s stove with a single-phase lead (with 3 prongs) as my flat is not able to support 3 phase power. Can anybody tell me how to do it?

I have a Kenmore microwave mounted above my stove. The light that lights my stove is blown and I can't find the right replacement bulb. It has two little prongs that should fit into the unders


Are these little spot lights? About the size of 1/2 dollar round and maybe 1.5 -2 inches long? 2 prongs about 1/2 inch apart? Take one of those lights and show it to a local hardware dealer like "Lowes". There are may types and some are 12V some are 110V. Thats why I suggest showing to the local hardware guy.

Hot plate just wont turn on...switches checked in meter box and no iscolating switch. baumatic ceramic cook top. BA 13.2 ( i think) house just been sold. Hotplate wked thurs. House sold Fri. new owner...


Hello, is this a two electrical filament hot plate? Also, is this range stove/oven? I'm a little confused here on what exactly what you are referring to hot plate or cook stove with electrical burners and oven. If it a really old hot plate with one burner look at the plug there could be a fuse in it. If it is electrical range then check the control board and see they a fuse on. If not, check the voltage with a volt meter. Be very careful here there two phase that is 240 Volts AC. The voltage will be split between the two l20 hot legs AC which is 120 degrees out of phase in respect to each other; in other words, don't both of them don't let them touch each other.


If it a kitchen stove I'm fairly sure that the control board is shot and with this not operating it will not open the current/voltage relays for the electrical burners. REMEMBER YOU ARE DEALING WITH 240 VOLT AC...BE CAREFUL.... GB....stewbison

We turned on our oven last night and it heated up to 345, wanted to get to 400, then my wife saw smoke form the right hand front of the inside of the oven. I wanted to check the element, but can't figure...


I am assuming you are referring to a conventional stove. First shut off power to the stove at the breaker panel. (either a 40 or 50 amp breaker). Check to see if the elements come on before proceeding.
Slide out stove and unplug it. Look on the back. There will be a vertical piece of sheet metal with 1 to 3 screws or a large flat panel with several screws (1/4 Inch socket). Remove this panel to reveal the leads to the bake element.
remove the leads. Then remove the two screws inside the stove (1/4 inch socket) to remove element. The model and serial for the stove should be located by sliding the drawer out at the bottom of the stove on the left side.
You will need this number for the correct element. They run about 20 dollars typically. Hope this helps.

I need a replacement element (8 inch) for my Kelvinator range (model no. KRS J3L-1)


Hi, W/D here.
Here's the easiest way that I know of to repair your stove:
Remove your element. Most can be removed by lifting the element on the side away from where the leads disappear under the stove top, and then pulling it out of the plug-in socket.
Take the element with you to one of the larger hardware stores, and locate the elements that have your style of terminals. The elements are generic; that's why you needed your old one. I have replaced dozens of elements and have found the generics to be every bit as good as one ordered, and cheaper, too!
Best regards, --W/D--

Ok we have a fry master natural gas fryer serial number 0401LP0001 model number BIH252CSD and we are trying to figure out if it has to be hooked up to a 220 plug or if we can use a 110?


look on the back of the fryer for an info sticker/plate that lists the specs for the unit...you'll see the voltage and phasing required for it...as an example, the picture below shows a 208V 3 phase unit...in general, i think 110V full size fryers would be rare if they exist at all...

I self cleaned my stove kenmore790.9532. It tripped the breaker in my basement. Now the oven doesn't work at all !. when I UNPLUG AND replug the latch motor buzzes real quick. Would it be safe to assume...


Pretty safe to assume. This commonly happens after self cleaning. Here is a link to your part Motor - Latch
You could double check by checking with an ohmeter. Connect one lead to each input wire the needle should move slightly or read less than 1 ohm. Also connect one lead to a single terminal and the other to ground, you should have no continuity. Check both leads this way.

I have a 3 phase 24kw 60 cycles 240 volt vulcan hart el-40 kettle I replaced the heating element ( not sure what its called ) but I don't know which wires go where to the element


Hi, on a 3 phase wiring system, all 3 legs will be the same voltage unless it is the 25 year old 3- phase, which would have what was called the stinger leg which was higher in voltage. As on most any 208/230/240.277 volt 3-phase wiring system, L-1, L-2, and L-3, have the exact same voltage.It does not make any difference on any of the 3 hot Legs where they terminate on this element. If there are 3 termination points on this element, connect any of the 3 conductors to element. Trust me, as I deal with 3-phase daily.If you do have a 4th conductor by chance that you removed, you will need to check with a volt meter to see which 3 have 120 to ground and the 4th will have nothing to ground and would be some neutral. 3-phase wiring doesn't require a neutral. If you have any more questions please let me know and I will help you.This will solve you're question I am positive! Sincerely,

Does stove-top need downdraft if microwave has oven-hood combo?


We have a stove with no downdraft, and a microwave with a hood above it. It works just fine. I expect you could keep your downdraft and put a microwave without a hood above it, and that would also work. I don't think, however, you can buy an above the range mocrowave oven, that slides in on brackets, which will not have a hood.
