This might be a couple of things:

  • Check circuit breakers...there are two that control the oven in tandem. Is one blown open? Turn both off and then on.
  • Check all wiring to the unit. You may have an open wire anywhere in the line including at the terminals in the oven. Make sure breakers are off to do this and all below.
  • Remove the element and check for resistance. There should be some. Also check the element terminals and the plug in the oven for corrosion while you're at it.
  • None of those: the thermostat or over temp sensor might be bad. Find these by looking at the wiring diagram on the back of the stove and tracing out the wiring.
  • Electronics package. Replace if none of the above.

Stovetop & Oven not heating but clock, lights, & vent fan are working


It sounds like you are getting only one side of the power to your stove. the lights will work but no heat. your power breaker has two sides for an electric stove. It may be one side isn't reset properly. make sure that you snap the breaker completely off and then completely back on. if that doesn't work perhaps an electrician is in order or one side of your power cord has burned off at the terminal block. I have had this happen.

"off" light displays and the oven will not heat up


The internal temperature may have been above the minimum setting for the oven temp, hence it locks out till cool down. Once it cools it should be OK. If not, cycle the breaker to the oven to reset.

I have an old double oven white -westinghouse stove and while i was at work the fuse blew in the basment. well i have reset it but now everything works but my stove. well my oven light will not come on...


Hi, sounds like your oven is a 240 volt electric.  One of your fuses is still blown. 240 volts requires 2 hot legs and obviously you have only one. When you turn on a burner, it completes the circuit to your light. Bottom line, you only have 120 volts to your oven, check the breakers or fuses. Good luck!

Oven & broiler not heating on our Maytag MER5530. Lights on the control panel indicate it should be working. When I set oven temp, the oven "thinks" it's at that temp already. Turn broiler on and no...


Hi,
May be the heating coil is bust?
The control panel is in parallel usually so as long as the controls are getting power they will turn on. But if the coil is gone you wont get heat. If you want to try fixing it, you may need a multimeter, or a continuity tester.

Oven does not heat up


I had the same problem with my magic cheff oven. I had to set the temp at 400 - 500 degrees to get to get an actual oven temp of about 250 degrees. The oven temp sensor checked ok with an ohm meter. Should be around 1100 ohms at room temp. I work in the electronics industry and know capacitors go out of range and dry out with heat and over time so I replaced the 3 or 4 electrolitic capacitors on the timer board. Cost me about $6.00 at Radio Shack and now my oven temp is right on the money. I realize not everyone may want to do this but it worked for me. Better than the $200.00 for a new oven timer control board. I have also found a company's website that fixes these boards for about $89.00 ApplianceTimers.com

Steps required to replace 2200watt element for fan forced Oven Westinghouse 688 freestyle.


Symptoms= Oven light ok, thermostat light ok, oven not heating at all or to a low heat. May also have tripped the circuit breaker on the switchboard
Probably the element
Switch off power to the oven at switchboard
Open the oven door just a little and pull the door up to remove it.
Lift the panel at the oven back wall over the fan.
See the coiled element, you may already see a defect in the surface of the element.
Remove the screw at the base of the coil
With a small sharp screwdriver flip out the clip on each side of the element at the top
Feed the element out of the holes
Note that the green wire is attached to the frame of the element and the red wire to the core of the element.
The other side of the element may have two white wires
Disconnect all these wires, maybe using a pliers.
You can check this element with a simply multimeter, buy a new element and refit opposite to removal
