Hi tgmatthes,

If the broiler element does not heat up make sure that the oven selector switch is set correctly and that the temperature switch is set to the desired temperature. Then, time to test the broiler element. To test the broil element, remove the wires from the broil element terminals by removing the screws from the terminal or pulling the wires off the broil element terminal. Remember to label the wires for reinstallation. Visually check the entire element for signs of burn. Test the broiler element for continuity. Using the ohmmeter, set the range scale on R x 1 and place the probes on the element terminals. There should be continuity, with readings ranging from 19 to 115 ohms, however readings will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. If there are any signs of element burning, or if there is no continuity, replace the element. You may purchase broiler element from Sears. If you're using Tappan Model # TEF351EWF you may click on this link. Just a reminder, make sure the power is off before proceeding any test or repair.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Kenmore oven C880 676239J2 is not heating up... is the only fuse the one located under the light on top of the control panel?


I doubt that fuse is used for the heating element. If you can unplug the element in the oven, an ohmmeter should show you if it has opened up (burned out) on you. Turn off the 220 breaker in the breaker box before doing this even though there should be no voltage with the controls turned off. (There usually will still be 110 to the top of the unit.)

I have a built in wall oven whirlpool gold mod.gbs309pvsoo controls turn on but no heat from element


Could be element could be Hi limit thermostat could be control. In that order. First step is turn breaker off and remove element to make sure the wires are still connected to back of element. Visually inspect element very good for burns or a white powder residue signally the element burned up. Next step is harder, need to remove the oven and take off back panel, there you will find the hi temp thermostat. Check for continuity, if none replace.

Usually when the element fails to heat up, It means its usually broke, cracked, or where they plug in gets brittle and breaks. Your best bet is to replace the bottom element.

Pleb30s8ccc baking heating element does not work. I checked the voltage at the terminals and am not getting a reading while the broiler gets a reading. What do I do next?


Hi,

You will have to trace the wires back from the terminals to the switch or thermostat where they come from. The heating element will have its own thermostat & this is the most probable cause for the power not reaching the element. It will then have to be replaced.

Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Best wishes,

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.

Microwave not heating


In all likelihood the Magnetron, or Power Diode has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.
