    I had the same problem with my lower element and it was replaced #9752294 but the stove is not coming up to temp. Also cakes are not cooking fully and it is the Accubake System stove.

    Our original element had two holes in it.

    Do you think there could be a defect in the replacement element?

    Thanks

The link I'm providing provides the necessary steps to replace an element in your oven (if this is the case):

http://www.fixya.com/support/r469407-replacing_bake_or_broil_element_in

It is common when elements go bad on an electric range to have them trip a breaker such as yours. The element are a resistive coil that can vary in resistance depending on model and manufacturer. If you wish to take a measurement to be sure, first, UNPLUG the range and remove the back panel. The terminals for the BAKE and BROIL elements are visible in the rear, each having different colored wires leading to the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. The board will have a separate relay for each circuit (one for bake, and one for broil). It is less common for a relay to short out, but it does happen. If this were the case, the element would stay on conterminously. That's why I suspect you element to be the cause of the problem. Disconnect the leads from the BAKE element and perform a meter reading across the terminal connectors of the element on the Rx1 scale. The element should show continuity if good. If it doesn't, replace it. Now, on the same Rx1 scale, take a meter reading with one probe on the terminal and the other on the outer shell of the element. If it shows continuity this time, there is a grounding problem with the element, and it will also require replacement. I hope this leads you in the right direction. Let me know if you require further assistance. Good Luck to you.

PS I appreciate the kind words. You're right, I don't hear it enough. It makes my day when I can help someone and they appreciate the effort.

Direct drive whirlpool washer has electrical odor and stops.


the burn odour and stoppage an electrical fault and coupled with a 20 amp circuit breaker tripping indicates a motor fault
Capacitors are tested with an capacitance tester and not an ohm meter as ohms is a resistance and not capacitance reading
When breakers activate it indicates a massive short or current draw and the problem could be in the windings of the motor
could be water getting into the motor at times causing the intermittent problem
I would suggest that you call in a service technician or an accredited electrician to check out the machine properly

Frigidaire gallery stove, oven not working,


Morison,
The same thing happened to me about a week ago. I was preheating our electric oven, heard a very loud bang/pop. Checked and the oven had PF (power failure) I went downstairs and the breaker was tripped. Came back upstairs and to look at stove, the burners are working fine so I continued to preheat oven after a half an hour the oven was only slightly warm. Did you ever find out what was wrong?

Whirlpool Gold electric range.


Hello delmonico
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, when turning on the self clean option, after 1 minute, I get E 1 F5 on the display panel. What do I do?

Try this .
Turning off the power to the range at the breaker for 5 minutes and see if this will reset the system.

Display shows messages


Is the display showing a letter followed by a number?
Depending on your model, press OFF/CANCEL or CANCEL/
OFF to clear the display. See “Control Display” in the
“Electronic Oven Controls” section. If it reappears, call for
service.

Let me know how it goes.

Thank You,Huuum
