Same problem with fuse...

    I figured as much - how else would they make their money! The service person is coming Friday. Thanks for the quick response.

The control panel went out the oven fan still blows but the oven does not heat up nor do the panel light up


if this is a new oven/stove its possible there is a fuse that has went out. pull away from wall (unplug) start looking everywhere you can for a fuse, keep a magnet handy to keep your screws together, or just place in a bowl. also a flashlight is handy. try to hunt down the issue yourself if you cant afford to have it serviced. I had my refrigerator stop cooling , fan was blowing just no cold air, I pulled it out and looked inside the motor area and noticed a wire had been chewed in half by a mouse, unplugged it ,spliced the wires back together, black tape, plugged back in and shazam ! fixed..then the mouse hunt began!! good luck

We have to replace the control panel on our Amana AOES3030E wall oven. We have the part but how do we access the area where the new part needs to go? I'm not seeing how in the user manuals I looked...


To replace the control panel, the wall oven needs to be pulled out about 10-12 inches to access the conrtol panel..it has screws on the side AND in the back of control panel taht have to come off to get into panel...typically it can be pulled out fairly easy a couple of feet without it tipping and falling out of cabinet but only pull out as little as necessary

Do I have to pull the whole double oven assembly out of the wall to gain access to the upper oven power relay board? MCS230S


On some ovens you have to pull the oven out of the cavity and remove the top panel of the oven to get access to the electronic timer control. On other ovens you only have to remove the panel which is behind the timer without removing the whole thing. Just slide it out a bit and have a look at the panel behind the timer.

I opened the door before the self cleaning cycle was finished? It was blowing and I thought my husband left it on when he left. I came home and walked past it and felt the air, so I pushed oven off and...


You have most likely caused one or more fuse relays to blow.
The self-clean operation can not be interrupted before the cycle is complete without causing issues.
There is the main fuse inside the control panel and 2 fuse relays on rear of the oven.
In order to access these fuses you must open the door,then remove the mounting screws to remove the oven from its cabinet..
Use a wire coat hanger bent into a "U" shape on one end.
The door latch is in the center of the door on the top oven.
Slide the bent wire coat hanger between the door and the oven opening.
The "U" of the coat hanger will be right center of the door latch.
Slowly pull the "U" to the left until it catches the latch.
Then pull steady and forcefully to pull the latch mechanism to the left while putting pressure on the door to open it.
Once the door is open you can begin to access the parts for diagnosis and repair.

Will I be able to replace the element from inside oven?


It can be done from the inside if you are careful.
The thing to watch is that you do not lose the wires off the terminals when you disconnect from the heater, because if you do, you will have to gain access from the rear of the oven.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Where are my fuses located?


From http://home.howstuffworks.com/how-to-repair-an-oven3.htm Servicing Fuses If the range or oven is receiving power but doesn't work, the unit may have its own fuse or circuit breaker assembly. This assembly is usually located under the cooktop of the range. In some units, lift the top of the range to gain access to the fuse assembly; or lift the elements, remove the drip pans, and look on the sides of the cabinets. Inside the oven, look to the back to spot the fuse assembly. Electric Oven Troubleshooting Guide There are a myriad of problems that can cause your electric range or oven to malfunction. Click here for instructions on how to deal with specific issues. If the unit has this additional fuse or breaker system, components such as the oven light, the range heating elements, the timer, and a self-cleaning feature may be separately fused. If these components or features fail to work, don't overlook the possibility that the fuses have blown. To replace a blown fuse, unscrew the old fuse and install a new one of the same type and electrical rating. If the unit has circuit breakers, push the breaker or reset button, which is usually located on the control panel.

Fisher Paykel electric oven doesn't heat in Bake mode


Electric Oven: Repairs and Maintenance Electricranges and ovens are generally easy to repair, because there's not muchto go wrong and there's not much you can do. Most repairs are actuallyreplacements, a matter of unplugging the old part and plugging in thenew. Most of the malfunctions that affect electric ranges involvefaulty heating elements.

Caution: Beforedoing any work on an electric range or oven, make sure it's unplugged,or turn off the power to the unit by removing one or more fuses ortripping one or more breakers at the main entrance panel or at aseparate panel. If the range is fused at a separate panel, this panelmay be located adjacent to the main panel or in a basement, crawlspace, or other location. If there is a grounding wire to the range,disconnect it. Make sure the power to the unit is off.

Servicing Fuses

Ifthe range or oven is receiving power but doesn't work, the unit mayhave its own fuse or circuit breaker assembly. This assembly is usuallylocated under the cooktop of the range. In some units, lift the top ofthe range to gain access to the fuse assembly; or lift the elements,remove the drip pans, and look on the sides of the cabinets. Inside theoven, look to the back to spot the fuse assembly.

To replace a blown fuse, unscrew the oldfuse and install a new one of the same type and electrical rating. Ifthe unit has circuit breakers, push the breaker or reset button, whichis usually located on the control panel.

Replacing Range Heating Elements

Whena range heating element burns out, it's easy to replace. But before youdisassemble the range to check or replace an element, make sure therange is receiving power. Here's what you can do:

Step 1:Check the power cord, the plug, and the outlet. Then look for blownfuses or tripped circuit breakers at the main entrance panel or at aseparate panel.

Step 2:Check the fusing system inside the range. If the circuit is broken,restore it. If the range is receiving power, go on to check the element.

Step 3:When the element is cool, remove it. In most ranges, each top heatingelement is connected to a terminal block in the side of the elementwell. To remove the terminal block, lift the element and remove themetal drip pan that rests below it. The element is held by tworetaining screws or is push-fit into the terminal block. To remove ascrew-type element, remove the screws holding the wires. To remove apush-type element, pull the element straight out of its connection.

To remove a range heating element, remove the screws holding the terminal
wires, or pull the element straight out of its connection.Step 4:Test the element with a volt-ohm-milliammeter (VOM) set to the RX1scale. Disconnect one of the electrical leads to the element and clipone probe of the VOM to each element terminal. If the element isfunctioning properly, the meter will read between 40 and 125 ohms; ifthe meter reads extremely high, the element is faulty and should bereplaced.

To test a range element without using a VOM, remove aworking element from its terminal block and connect it to themalfunctioning element terminal. Don't let the test element overlap theedges of the element well; keep the element inside the well, even if itdoesn't fit perfectly. Turn on the power to the range. If the workingelement heats, the suspected element is bad and should be replaced. Ifthe working element doesn't heat, the terminal block wiring or theswitch that controls the element may be faulty. Call a professionalservice person.

Step 5:Replace a burned-out range element with a new one made specifically forthe range. Take the old element to the appliance-parts store; ifpossible, take the make and model information, too. This data willprobably be on a metal tag attached to the back service panel of therange. To install the new element, connect it the same way the old onewas connected.

Replacing Oven and Broiler Heating Elements

Electric oven and broiler elements are often even easier to test and replace than range elements. Here's how:

Step 1:If the oven element doesn't work, first check to see if the range isreceiving power. Don't overlook the fusing system inside the range.

Step 2: If the range is receiving power, set the timer on the range to the MANUAL position.

Step 3: If the element still doesn't heat, turn off the power to the range and test it with a VOM set to the RX1 scale.

Step 4:Remove the screws or plugs that connect the element to the power.Remove the retaining shield, which is usually held by two screws, andremove the element from the brackets that hold it in the oven. Theelement is usually held in these brackets by screws.

how-to-repair-an-oven-9.jpg

To remove an oven or broiler heating element, remove the screws or pull
the plugs that connect it. Remove a retaining shield and lift out the element.

Step 5:Clip the probes of the VOM to each element terminal. If the element isin working order, the meter will read from 15 to 30 ohms. If the meterreads higher than 30 ohms, the element is faulty and should bereplaced. If the element tests all right but doesn't work, the problemmay be at the terminals. Make sure the terminals are clean and tight atthe element connections.

Oven and broiler elements cannot betested without a VOM. If you don't have a VOM, take the element to aprofessional service person for testing. The problem is usually amalfunctioning element; however, you aren't risking much by replacingthe element without a professional test.

Step 6:Take the burned out element with you to the appliance-parts store tomake sure you get the right replacement part; if possible, take themake and model information, too.

To install the new element,place it in the same position as the old one. Connect it the same waythe old one was connected, using the same screws to hold it in place.Just about all the other components of an electric range or oven(including its door gasket, oven controls, and timer) are virtually thesame as the components used on gas ranges.

Most problems withgas and electric ovens or ranges are easier to fix than you think. Thekey is knowing how the various parts work and when to replace them.

Whirlpool Double Oven RBD305PDB7 - Upper Oven Won't Heat


I have the single oven of this style and I had to replace the thermocouple (part number 4450934) on the back of the oven three times (used the cleaning cycle three times). After using the cleaning cycle, the oven would not heat so each time I had to pull the oven out from the wall to access the back so I could change the part. Once a new part was put on the back of the oven, it worked fine. To pull the oven out, open the oven door and look down by the doors hinges. On each side you will see a screw that's holding the side molding on. Remove the screws and then the molding. That will give you access to the screws that hold the oven into the framing around the oven. Remove the screws and then you can pull the oven out to access the back to change the thermocouple. The oven is heavy so you may want some help to get out. It is not a one man job, maybe a one man and wife job. It is heavy. I hope this helps. Better late than never.
