I was baking something in the oven one day and the breaker went. The oven shut off. Tripped the breaker and it started working again. Same thing happened again but this time I was not using the stove or oven. and the Oven would not heat up. But the stove top still works.

You have a fault, if the contact breaker is tripping , that's something shorting like a element , or a fan motor. Basically you need someone with technical knowledge . ISOLATE THE OVEN FROM THE MAINS SUPPLY. Your going to need a tester, for continuity, inspect all heating elements, and fans visual and continuity tests on both , if no fault found move to the wiring and switches, test them , if any wiring showing signs of burning then a regulator problem may exist, replace damaged wiring after checking regulation, this job requires some considerable skill, and should not be under taken by a unqualified person.

Hope this is helpful

GE Wall Oven - No heat (broil or bake)

On appliances like this only the heating elements use 220 volts. things like the clock, fan, etc use 110 volts. That is why some things work and other do not. Start at the breaker, sometimes a double pole breaker will have 1 side tripped, but will look perfectly fine. switch the breaker all the way to off then re-set. If nothing changes follow the power to the appliance remove the panel and look for some fuses, check to see if any are blown. Also sometimes the microwave will have a separate power source even though its built in to the same appliance. So that's not always a good symptom to follow.

Oven elements do not heat?

The oven bake element has burnt out and needs replacing. Shut the power off to the range. Remove the element mounting screws located inside the oven above or below each end of the element. Carefully slide the element out, disconnect electrical wiring. Install new element.

I was baking something and all of a sudden the lights in our house went dim and our oven glowed bright orange and when I opened it, smoke came out but my food was still uncooked. Now the oven won't heat...

Sounds like you had an element burn out and tripped a breaker.

Find the breaker to the oven. If its tripped it should be in the middle position, not "off" they are sometimes easy to mistake for being on.

If you have a volt.ohm meter we can doagnose the problem and confirm if it is the element or not. (90% chance thats it.)

They are fairly easy to replace and usually pretty cheap.
But before you buy parts, make sure if its still under warranty or not. If it is, it could save you some time and money.

GE Oven JTP15BW Broil Element on, Bake Element off during baking.

I have the same problem. Just swap the 2 wires that are marked as 'broil' and 'bake' on the controller board. But sometimes it switches back, then I have to swap the wires again.

You might want to leave the 'broil' post unconnected to prevent burning food..

KitchenAid KERA807PSS01 oven won't shut off until breaker thrown

assuming its a stainless stell oven? if so heres the par tyou need its a membrane switch( your cancel button ceased to operate corrrect???not a bad part to install you need to remove a few screws from under control panel itself( perhaps a few on the sides, the front control will lift off and this part is installed from behind the control panel (SHUT THE BREAKER(S))

part number 9756595ES

in the mean time instead of shuttin off the breaker toreset you can simply( requires reading manual ) set your oven to time bake. it will shut off automatically after predetermined time has been obtained.

Whirlpool oven issue

Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
