Either your high voltage rectifier or magnetron (or both) has failed.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

Hi
This means a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the sensor is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue start by checking the oven temp. sensor for 1100 ohms, if the rating is more then that then check the control and door switch and replace the part that is bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I have maytag advance cooking system(electric) and the oven will not work.The timer to set the oven and the time is not lighting up but the stove is working.any sugestion


try resetting the clock. If it is digital, push the clock button and then the number buttons untill you have the proper time displayed...then push the clock button again. If your clock and timer are manual, try pushing in the clock lever and turning it 1/4 turn. If this works it would indicate that your timer has a start and finish time and that the oven is not working because the clock has rotated around to the finish time.

This an old range with side by side ovens which work perfectly. the 4 burners slide out, all 4 elements will heat, but do not get to a high heat, is there a control which affects all of the elements ...


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

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.

I need a replacement element (8 inch) for my Kelvinator range (model no. KRS J3L-1)


Hi, W/D here.
Here's the easiest way that I know of to repair your stove:
Remove your element. Most can be removed by lifting the element on the side away from where the leads disappear under the stove top, and then pulling it out of the plug-in socket.
Take the element with you to one of the larger hardware stores, and locate the elements that have your style of terminals. The elements are generic; that's why you needed your old one. I have replaced dozens of elements and have found the generics to be every bit as good as one ordered, and cheaper, too!
Best regards, --W/D--

The oven takes a long time to start heating. somtimes if we turn a burner on and off the oven starts you can see the starter element glowing


If this is a gas oven, and the starting element you're referring to is the ignitor, replace the ignitor, it's "worn out". Depending on your make and model the ignitor is usually either flat or round. Part numbers respectively are 12400035 and 4342528. The ignitors can be substituted for the ones with the same shape regardless of the brand.

Sharp Microwave Oven over stove fan goes on by itself


Please note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

So please post a
NEW question, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, as well as the answers to these questions:

Which fan is it?

The
internal cooling fan, which comes on automatically whenever the unit is microwaving?

Or the hood vent exhaust fan which you can turn on and off manually?

Or the convection fan, if it is a convection model?

When is it coming on?

Is it coming on whenever you cook on the stove top?

Thanks!
