Hot Surfacelight stays on. How do I fix it please.


First Shut the power off to the Range at circuit breaker! If THAT TOP IS STILL ON?! Your range is Haunted! You have a fault in the circuitry which is usually called a Dead Ground. Meaning there is a ground wire that is frayed and touching bare metal. This is keeping the circuit open or On. The Other is you have a faulty knob that turns the element on/off. The knob (switch) can be tested but is Very Involved~! I would replace your switch that controls the surface element staying hot. Usually (cause we use them more) it is the front two and one of them is worn out (just like people get). IF, you still have an issue your going to have to trace the Black wire back with a Lighted Probe you can get at Auto Zone/Pep Boys for $5. This handy tool will light up if you have the Range completely off at circuit breaker and you start at the element and work towards the switch (knob). If any part lights up and it is properly grounded. There is your fault or open frayed wire needs replacing. Good Luck!

JBP65G GE range oven won't shut off


Electric Ranges have circuit boards that control the power to each burner or element. Circuit board could be faulty. I would not mess with electricity unless you know what you are doing. Call a certified repair specialist or the manufacturer if under warranty. Good Luck

My es300 electric range is tripping the breaker switch when I have more than one top element on and the oven. A few months ago the breaker switch started to trip when we had more than two elements on top...


Hello Happydude,

I understand that you are having a problem with your electric range. You state that as you turn more elements on the stovee on (ie. the burners and oven) the breaker will trip. Have you had any service done to the range before the problem started occuring?

This sounds like you have a problem with your breaker. As a breaker is tripped it will get weak as many times as your breaker has tripped I would replace it. You also need to verify that you are using atleast a 50 amp breaker. You will need to purchase the same type of breaker as you have (ie. Cuttler Hammer, GE, Square D, etc.). You will need a two pole 50 amp breaker. Follow the below dirrections to change the breaker.

1. Turn off the main breaker.
2. Verify that all electicity is off by checking electric in the house of building (everything should be off, not working)
3. Remove cover panel screws
4.. Lossen the screws on the two wires that are attached to the breaker
5. Remove the wires
6. Remove the breaker
7. Install the new breaker
8. Insert one wire under each screw
9. Reinstall cover panel
10. Turn main breaker on
11. Turn on oven breaker

Once the oven breaker is on check to see if all elements and oven will work at the same time. If the breaker trips. We will have to walk thru some more trouble shooting steps. However, I do believe that this will solve your problem.

Thank you for chossing FixYa.com please post any other questions that you may have about you appliances

Am making my Thanksgiving dinner today. The oven went out about an hour ago. When I flip the circuit breaker on, it goes off. If the stove is unplugged, the circuit breaker stays on. Help!


one of the burners is blown turn breaker off and remove top heater element then turn on breaker, does it stay on? if yes you found your problem burned out element that is shorting. pull one at a time till it stops resetting the breaker, be aware resetting the breaker more than 10 times considers they breaker not reliable but have personally not have had a problem unless it was 20 years or older.

I have kitchen aid in the counter range, the bottom heat element is bad. The element has burnt and has a 3" piece that has separated. At the same time the oven stopped working the burners stopped working...


The oven element will not affect the top burners, Unless it tripped the breaker at the panel when the element burned it two. Is there power to the stove? The top burners have their own power and control separate.

Top element only stays on high


The trouble would be a failed infinite heat switch. This is the adjustable switch you are using to set the element to low, medium or high.

**Use extreme caution if you are making the repairs yourself.....Turn off circuit breaker and verify power is off with a meter. 240VAC is present at the switch. In addition, the glass top and elements are very fragile.

Are the heater coils supposed to stay bright red the entire cooking time when broiling?


You posted under a JGBP90 GAS Kitchen Range.

If you have an electric range, you should leave the door set to the part way open position (about 4 inches) when broiling, and the top (broil element) normally stays red hot the entire time then.
This should be a Fix-Ya for your problem.

Amana electric range - light but no heat


Hi rablef,
I would recommend you check your fuse or breaker box for a blown fuse or tripped breaker. If you are only getting one leg of your 220 volts the you will have the problems you have listed. If you have no breaker or fuse problem you should then check your range cord for possible shorts or hot spots. Then work your way to the terminal block on the range. It definately sounds like you are only getting 110 volts to your range. I hope this will FixYa.
Good luck, Mike

Gemini Range Dual Burner


Unfortunately, you cannot repair one element of a dual burner. It all comes as one unit. When one portion of a dual or triple element goes bad, you must replace the whole element. I believe the part number is 1032746 and runs about $70. You will have to lift the glass top to access the burner elements. If you decide to pursue this on your own follow these steps: 1. Unplug range and/or turn off main breaker. 2. Open oven door to access screws under front edge of cooktop. Remove two screws and the top should tilt up. 3. The top will not stay up on it's own, so you will need some assistance holding it up. Some ranges have a couple of disconnect plugs that you can unplug, so you remove the entire top and lay it somewhere to work on. If this is the case with yours (as I suspect it is), lay some soft towels down on the kitchen table or counter top and lay the cooktop upside down. This will make it much easier to work on. 4. Remove affected element by disconnecting the wires first. You may want to write down how they came off, so you can be sure to reconnect them in the right order. 5. Remove mounting brackets holding element in place. Pay particular attention to the numbering scheme on the bottom of the element and where the brackets are mounted. The new element usually doesn't come with new brackets which means you have to take the brackets off the old element and put them on the new element. Make sure you install them in the same numbered holes as they were located before. 6. Reconnect wires and reinstall cooktop, making sure you reconnect the disconnect plugs if equipped. Now, be careful when working on the cooktop while it is upside down. Make sure you don't apply too much pressure on the glass or you could crack it. Also, use extreme care NOT to touch the element surface as the oils from you hands can cause hot spots and effectively ruin it. The bake light material in which the element is mounted is also very fragile. DO NOT put to much pressure on it or it may crack and break. Once you get the cooktop reinstalled and power reapplied, op test it to make sure BOTH elements are working. It is normal to see a little bit of sparking at first with new elements and/or an odor. Test the entire range of the element and make sure it regulates like it should. I hope this helps you.
