Question about Ovens

1 Answer

I have a JennAir Model D156 that I recently replaced the bake element. When this element went out it also tripped the breaker. When turning on the oven, the display states that it is pre heating, but does not. Is there any other elements that could have blown at the same time, if so, which one(s) and how to test if these are good or not?

The issue seems to be with the oven temperature sensor that has blown same time with the element and should be replaced. However, before replacing it you can test it for 1100ohms and replace if it reads more than 1100ohms. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

    Check the sensor when it arrives for 1100 ohms with multimeter before you install it. Let me know if you need more information.

Electric range drawing too much current

Are the top and bottom elements not supposed to come on when in bake mode? Check your instruction manual. The circuit breaker will not affect how your oven works. If the CB is tripping then maybe the circuit is not of a high enough rating to cope. Again check on the load that the oven takes in the instruction manual.

Oven not heating properly

most common problems:
1. calrod unit not working(heating element) easy replacement
2. breaker tripped.(sometimes a double breaker will only trip one of the circuit breakers so you end up with half power)

Sounds like you have a bad or loose wire on the element plug. If you could post the model number of the unit I will see if I have the service manual for your range.

I just replaced my baking element in my oven, and when i turned the breaker back on, now the new element automatically heats up by itself and stays on....with everything off. The only way I can get it to...

If the only wires you disconnected and reconnected were the 2 on the element itself, the bake relay is fused. Depending on the brand and model, the bake relay can be located on either a realy board or the electronic oven controller. Either the controller or the relay board (if present), will also need to be replaced.

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.

Circuitry may have gotten tripped during clean cycle. Oven will open and electronics work but neither element will heat.

Burned out element

When the element burned in 2 iot may have tripped your circuit breaker.
Check your breaker box and look for a 40 or 50 amp breaker and flip it off and then back to on. If this doesn't help then a tech. may need to be called for service.
