We cooked pizza at 500 something popped and now our oven cooks but not right , any ideas


If you have an electric range, look at both the top and bottom elements while oven is cold. Look for a rough spot like a hole in the element. You may have just burned out one of the elements. Sometimes they go bad without any marks. Turn on oven to about 350 and watch the bottom element to see if it gets red hot. Then set for broil and watch the top for the same red hot glow. If either does not glow red after 5 to 10 minutes, that element is bad.

Wash water does not get hot


That doesn't sound right, because it should be hooked up to the hot water to begin with, the heating element in the dishwasher just boosts the temp for sterilizing.

When you have a dishwasher you usually increase the temp of the hot water tank, it's usually in the manual.

If you have small children then it's better not to make it very hot.

As to why the dishwasher isn't getting real hot, the heating element is probably bad and needs replacing.

Also setting can be low or off, but water should be hot even if they are low at least what temp your hot water tank is set at.

Is the top heating element inside the oven supposed to get hot even if not set on broil?


Yes the top element does get hot even on bake but it does not get red hot just hot. It will get hot enough to burn you so be very carful.

Element does not heat


If the whole element turns red when you put it on high, and only half heats or turns red when on low, try this. Take one of the working elements out, put it where the non-working element is, and see if it heats. They just pull out on most electric ranges. Make sure you seat them firmly/tightly into the sockets. Surefire way to tell..........

I have a whirlpool range. During preheating the


sounds like you may have a bad bake element. try to see if the unit will get hot when set to broil. if it does then try the bake again. if you get no red hot heat from the bake element then you may need to replace it.
when an element is working properly it will heat to a red hot glow.

Poorly heating clothes dryer


Best way to test the elements and stats is to disconnect each one in turn, and with your meter set on the ohms range ,test each one in turn for continuity, you should get F.S.D.(full scale deflection) on each component.
Another way to test the element, is to bypas the stats, and connect the 240v suplly directly to the element, it should get red hot, but do not leave it on for more than a few seconds..
If it had gone down to earth, then theoretically it should trip the circuit breaker.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

New Heating Element; Has Power But Not Heating Up


Let's go over a few things: 
  • Your unit uses 220 volts to provide heating.  Some elements are wired to one of the two 'legs' of the 220 giving you 'low'.  High uses 220
220 consists of three wires...two 'hot' (red and black) and a neutral which is white.  Neutral to hot will give you 110...hot to hot 220.  Measure accordingly and use care!  Neutral and the frame of the stove are effectively the same terminal...for safety.
  • You say some of the wires are burnt or a fuse is blown.  They need to be replaced with proper wire...not just any kind.  There is high temp insulated wire available from many ACE and other home stores or parts shops.  It needs to be thick enough, too.  Make all connections carefully and fully onto clean terminals.  Tighten clockwise.
  • Check the voltage coming to the element on various settings as above.  If you only get 110/120, you have an open supply issue which needs to be found.
Look for: loose wires, corrosion, burned insulation to ground.
