Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This sounds like your missing 1/2 of your input power. Go to the main CB panel and cycle the Range CB to OFF by pressing it hard to off and then back on. Test your burners again.

Still have the problem? Start looking in the area of the house to oven power connection / terminal block in the back of the oven for signs of HOT / burned terminals.

Still have the problem... Last check is to check wiring in the main controls area.

Without your model number this a VERY generic response but when all burners present the same symptom it is usually input power or control related.

If you respond with a model number I wil see what I can find that may help you troubleshoot your Oven.

Thank for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Whirlpool range problem - lights etc on, but no heat from stove/range.


check the circuit breaker or fuses connected to the range
thelights will operate at only 120 volts but its takes 240 volts to heat
since no burners or oven elements heat that seems the breaker is the problem
anothe very probable cause is where the cord connects to the range their is a burnt connecting which would require repalcing the pigtail(range cord) and terminal block

I have a maytag super capacity plus stove and need to adjust the air mix for the burners. How to do it? Please help thanks


Open the top of the range. I believe there are a couple of spring clips in the front between the range top and the top of the door. Not sure on the Maytag. However, when you get the lid up, (it should be hinged at the back), set the burner pieces back on. (These burner pieces HAVE to be there or you'll just have a blowtorch pointing up!) You'll see that going to every burner there is a tube to carry the gas. on the side of every tube there will be an adjustable, sliding air vent. They are usually held in position by a set screw. Loosen the set screw. Light the burner and carefully slide the vent closed or open to adjust how much air is being brought into the mix. If the flame is way too high and or orange in color....you have too much air. You want as much flame as possible on high without the flame being orange or white-ish. Once you get the flame the way you like it, tighten the set screw back. Hope this helps.

We turned on our oven last night and it heated up to 345, wanted to get to 400, then my wife saw smoke form the right hand front of the inside of the oven. I wanted to check the element, but can't figure...


I am assuming you are referring to a conventional stove. First shut off power to the stove at the breaker panel. (either a 40 or 50 amp breaker). Check to see if the elements come on before proceeding.
Slide out stove and unplug it. Look on the back. There will be a vertical piece of sheet metal with 1 to 3 screws or a large flat panel with several screws (1/4 Inch socket). Remove this panel to reveal the leads to the bake element.
remove the leads. Then remove the two screws inside the stove (1/4 inch socket) to remove element. The model and serial for the stove should be located by sliding the drawer out at the bottom of the stove on the left side.
You will need this number for the correct element. They run about 20 dollars typically. Hope this helps.

On an old (1960s?) GE electric drop in range, 1 of the burner coils is not working. Solution?


Most likely the heating element (burner coil) has an open circuit ("burned thru") and would need to be replaced. Do you have a multi-meter with which to test the continuity of the element?

My old GE oven (JSP38G052BG) won't bake or broil. It start then stop after 1 or 2 minutes. The heating elements get worm. Can you help me please


Hello ediben11.

If your oven's bake or the broiler heating elements won't heat but the range burners still work;the clock may be set for a timed or self-cleaning cycle. So,make sure to check the clock buttons and the knobs are set properly.
*If your clock has a knob that says "push for manual" then push the knob in after that, try the baking and broiling elements again.

*If it still does not work properly, you may have a defect in the thermostat/selector switch/common wiring.

*If the oven does not have a separate bake or broil selector switch; then the thermostat is probably the problem. It is not easy to check the selector switch or thermostat for proper operation. If you suspect a problem in this area, call a qualified appliance repair technician.

Hope this helps.

Whirlpool Range RF315PXDW. Electric range. Top burners and oven will not turn on. Clock on top of stove and oven light turn on. Oven preheat timer operates but heating elements in oven do not turn on....


It sounds like you are missing part of your input voltage.

I would take a voltage reading at the receptacle and confirm you are reading 220-240VAC. Some homes have the 220 service receptacles wired up with two 120 volt breakers to make up your 220 service. If your home is configured this way, you may have one of the breakers tripped. Or, the receptacle itself may be bad. If you confirm you have the correct voltage at the receptacle, your power cord may be bad.

The reason the clock and display will still appear to work is because the clock only uses 110-120VAC and is tapped off the source voltage. The surface burners and the oven heating elements, however, require the full 220 service.

If you are confused by this explanation, please post back and let me know. Hopefully, this is a problem that will not require any parts or a service call. If the power cord is bad, you can purchase a replacement at any hardware store. I hope this information is helpful.

Hi, MY name is Ben I have problem with my Kenmore (GE) gas range. the oven does not start up...I've replaced the igniter, but no luck. I measured the voltage across the the two wires at the inigter and...


A burner works only intermittently If one of your burner heating elements works only intermittently, it's probably because of worn or bad contacts in the receptacle that the element plugs into. On most electric ranges, you can remove the element by lifting it up several inches and firmly pulling it away from its attachment (receptacle). Read your owner's manual to learn the correct technique for your range. If, after removing the element, you see that the ends of the element that were plugged in are pitted, corroded, burned, scarred, or rusted, replace both the element and the receptacle.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
