It sounds to me like you have loose electrical connections on your cooktop. Pull each element, and reset. The spash guards under the elements have groves in them to support the elements. These elements need to be supported so that the elements are not moving. Any movement can cause the elements to lose their connection and thus not be able to heat up.

GE Stove tope range not working


If the phenomenon is intermittent, and you get it going and coming as you restart the oven, then it is likely a bad wiring or a bad connection.
Ensure first that the circuit breaker is ok and well in place, then proceed testing wirings.
Check connectors to buners, hobs, and controls panel.
If all wirings and connections are OK, the what reamins is a faulty control panel or a fault on some of the knob controls.

My stove poped and went off. I tripped the breaker and now the oven will not heat. Neither the top or bottom unit.


First I would look at the heating element in the oven and make sure it is all in one piece. there are usually one on the bottom and one on top. sometimes they will burn apart and short out to stove. if they look ok then do a quick check, I would turn off all knob on the stove top and oven. then try to reset the breaker. hopefully it resets ok. then turn on one at a time and see which burner or oven element has a short. when you find the bad burner or stove element it will trip the breaker again.
hope this helps

Stove top or oven doesn't heats. range type is a accubake system


Have you check the outlet to see if its geting power, if not, check the main breaker in the breaker box, you may have to turn the breaker to the off postion and then back to the on postion, if power is going to the outlet your stove should work.

Oven was working, I had it on pre-heat, then I turned on the stove top, but the burners won't heat. When I turn on the stove top the stove makes a short BUZZ noise and the clock area lights up, when the burner is turned off all the lights go out. Please help, food prepared.
Thank You

Stove top pilot light


I have a GE Gas Stove XL44 the stove top buners don't light by themselves without manual lighting. When I turn on the buner knob the buner doesn't click. Also I used my self- cleaning oven for the first time and stopped it before the time was up after that is when the stove top buners wouldn't light by theirselves.
