Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a electric hotpoint stove which recently had a burner light up and burn out the basic coiling thing. That was replaced and the coils all seem to be working, but the "on" light for the stove remains on constantly regardless of whether any burners, etc are on. Is this a hazard? Any ideas of a fix or why this light is on? thanks in advance

I have a HotPoint electric stove (don't know the model number sorry) and the front right burner makes a rattling sound when i turn it on. It's about 10 or so ticks in quick succession and then a low...


metal expands when it is heated. There is a chance that replacing the burner would stop the noise till the standoff wears out again. Also the burner wells have inserts that the burner standoffs rest on. Replacing those might help. There is no danger present.

The right front burner wouldn't start up? I already bought a new coil and that wasn't the problem.


Could be the burner receptacle (block), the burner control, or maybe a wire has burned off. UNPLUG the stove before doing anything.

INTERMITTENT BURNER ELEMENT


Take out the element and look at the connecting ends see if there are char or burn marks where they make the connection. One thing you might try doing is cleaning the connections, if that does'nt work you will probably need to replace the element.

Hope this helps ya

You have an electrical fault in the connection to your stove or in your home. I believe that the neutral connection that is one of the three or four wires connecting your stove is loose or lifted off. Get an electrician in to solve your problem.

Kitchen aid stove problem


Peter,

First...be sure you cut power to the stove before you do anything. This is 220 volts and it can kill you. 220 Volts is based on two different lines of power coming to the stove, each of which is 110 volts...but opposite each other in phase. This may mean that some power to the stove is on and some is not. Let's go on.

I suspect a few things: First, the coil control for the burner is probably finished. What I also suspect is that it opened one of the two breakers (they are usually tied together in the panel and are either 40/50/60 amp units) causing some lights but no action.

What to do: Reset the breakers as a pair by turning them off and on. If one snaps off, you have a problem at the stove. If not,...which I doubt...you're in business.

Let's look at replacing the control. Shut the breakers. Now, take the burned control and remove it. Note the wiring positions if they are not on a plug. If they are terminals, tape the ends. Now, reset those breakers. If the other burners work, replace the control. Take the old one to the parts store. If it doesn't work, look around the burned area for broken wires. Repair and tape them up. Try again. Oh, and don't let anyone touch the stove while you're working with those breakers.
