I have a whirlpool stove and one of the burner doesn't work but the light on switch works. What could be the problem and how can I fix. Help pls.


1.TURN THE POWER OFF TO YOUR STOVE! In most houses, the electric stove is on it's own circuit breaker. If you are in an older home, you're probably lucky you even have a stove...just kidding! If you had your kitchen updated, every electrician should have wired your stove to its own circuit breaker. Shut off the circuit breaker.
2.Remove all the burners and catch plates under them. You are going to lift the top of your stove up. Once you've done that, see what kind of receptacle you have. You'll now have to shop around to find the part. The local appliance store charged us way too much. Lowe's or Home Depot might not have your parts, or they might. Amazon might have your part and if they don't, they will direct you to someone that will. We could have saved half the purchase price if we'd gone there in the first place.
*A quick note* The receptacle is wired to the switches at the front of the stove. They complete the entire circuit, so that is the only thing you need to worry about--from the switch to the receptacle.
After the stove top is lifted, you will find another tray under it. If the wires from the receptacles go under the tray to the "on" switches at the front of
your stove, you'll have to lift this tray up as well. Remove the tray and any other panels you need to in order to get to the switches.
3.Follow the wires, which should be color-coded for that stove top burner, until you find the switch it hooks to. If you have not purchased the parts yet, go ahead and disconnect the wire from the switch and pull the receptacle from it's aluminum cradle. You'll want these parts to take with you to find their replacements.
*note* Your new wire receptacle should consist of the housing for the burner to fit snug into, and two wires that extend from the other end. Electricity works in a circle. If the circle is broken, you have a short and that is where the spark comes from- your electrical current was trying to reach the other side and sparked to get there.
If you do have the parts, compare them to the old ones to make sure they are the same. Nothing worse than spending time on a repair with the wrong parts.
If you have the RIGHT parts, find the correct end of your wires and just slide it over the terminal at the switch. They might be the screw types. Whatever you have, connect it. It does not matter which one went where. As long as you are using the empty wire terminals you just uncovered with the old wires, you are completing the circle.
*Note* I have seen some receptacle kits that do not give you enough wire and require you to splice wires together. Not only is that a bad idea, but does not conform to electrical codes requirements and could result in fire. If the new equipment did not come with long enough wire to reach all the way from receptacle to switch, purchase a longer wire at your local hardware store. For a few pennies more you could be saving your family's lives.
4.Once you have hooked the receptacle ends to the switch harness, tie down the wires alongside the wire bundle until you get to the end.
5.Attach your burner receptacle to the aluminum clamp.
6.Attach your aluminum clamp to the stove top.
7.Screw down all the pieces you removed- anything covering the switches and the bottom tray. Put down your stove top and put in place all the shields and burners. Turn the circuit breaker back on for your stove and try it out!8_10_2012_8_42_55_am.jpg

Maytag Gemini Electric Range Model MER6770AAW. Upper oven broiler element will not heat up. Took the element to a parts appliance store where they tested it, and the element tested that it was still...


The control to tun the element on must be faulty, you will have to check it with an ohmmeter after youtake the wires off of jt make sure you draw a diagram of where the wires go when you put them back on Make sure to turn the power off before you start Hope this works for you good luck

Good Day I have a Maytag stove model MER5555RCW - the top elements peform as follows: right front and rear elements do not heatup at all. The left front and rear heatup but not to the normal hight heat...


I doubt that the switches are to blame - unless they have been damaged or had something spill inside them an accident or the like.

I found a wiring diagram for the internals of the appliance. You should consult it if you decide to look into the problem. Wires seldom fail along their length - but usually at a connection point. Knowing that, you could look around the inside of the stove but only if you unplug it first. Look for burnt or broken connections at the controls and anywhere they are indicated.. Repair or replace them as needed and reconnect as indicated by the schematic. I'm betting there's a break in a wire at / on one of the connections of a terminal strip or control switch.

Please rate this reply if helpful - good luck! Don't forget UNPLUG the stove before starting!

My old GE oven (JSP38G052BG) won't bake or broil. It start then stop after 1 or 2 minutes. The heating elements get worm. Can you help me please


Hello ediben11.

If your oven's bake or the broiler heating elements won't heat but the range burners still work;the clock may be set for a timed or self-cleaning cycle. So,make sure to check the clock buttons and the knobs are set properly.
*If your clock has a knob that says "push for manual" then push the knob in after that, try the baking and broiling elements again.

*If it still does not work properly, you may have a defect in the thermostat/selector switch/common wiring.

*If the oven does not have a separate bake or broil selector switch; then the thermostat is probably the problem. It is not easy to check the selector switch or thermostat for proper operation. If you suspect a problem in this area, call a qualified appliance repair technician.

Hope this helps.

Microwave not heating


In all likelihood the Magnetron, or Power Diode has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

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,
Shastalaker7
