My stove top and wall oven are connected to one

Assuming you replaced the fuse with the same size, yes, both are reasonably safe.

The coil in my oven caught on fire

You will need to replace the element, If it was just the lower bake element, it is a very easy repair, two screws and two wire connectors. UNPLUG the stove FIRST!!

I have electrical noise coming from the stove/oven

I'm assuming you're talking about a cooking stove/oven in the kitchen causing interference with your computer sound. If it is making enough of an arc to cause eletrical interference on your computer, it could be a bad short in the stove/oven and you should get someone to check it out as it could start a fire in your house. One thing you could check first is to make sure all the burners are turned off. You can pull the heating coils out of their plugins on the top of the stove for cleaning purposes. Take each burner out and check for burn marks on the contacts that plug into the sockets. Clean and re-insert the burners back into the sockets pushing them all the way in and then retry the stove to see if the problem still exists.

My gas oven, Kenmore model 362.7271192, will not work. The stove works just fine, but the oven will not get hot or light. How do I relight the pilot light, I don't even know if I am looking at the right...

There is not a pilot on this range. There is an ignitor and safety valve. Sometimes you can see a burned out ignitor and sometimes you will have to use a meter to check the voltage and continuity of the ignitor and valve coil.

My microwave lost all power.

The plug should be located in the small cabinet above the stove. Leave it unpluged at least for 10 minutes. Mine does it occasionally when it gets hot. I haven't had a problem since I turn the fan on when I run it.

Top of stove hot when oven on

I suspect this may have been happening for quite some time and you may never have noticed it. MANY ovens vent near one of the stove eyes. If you lift the cooktop for 'servicing', I bet you see the little vent. It is usually in the back right underneath the cooking surface. Check to make sure it is not blocked, clogged or has rusted out/off.

How does self cleaning work on my frigidaire gas burner stove?

Self cleaning would be better named... Running the oven real hot to burn off residue.. so in essence, the oven is locked out and then heat is raised to a high level to bake out grease and food byproducts so they either burn off or turn to ash for easier cleaning.. Does that make sense to you? Most self cleaning ovens lock out the user until the oven has cooled down to a safe user-friendly level..

Vapor Smell


It is very possible that the oven is not burning clean and this will release carbon monixide into your home. This could be very, very dangerous.
If you have just purchased the oven, then it may need to be set up for the type of gas you are using.
If it is not new, then it may have some problem with the air intake to the burner.
It could also be something harmless such as a spill that is burning off, but if you are not sure what it is, please take the safe route and do not use the oven.
This is not a problem that can easily and safely be determined from an internet website. A competent gas repairman needs to look at it if it is burning your eyes.
I understand this answer may not qualify as a fixya rating for you, but I am more interested in your safety than my rating when it comes to a possible dangerous problem.
Please be safe.

Electric Heating Element Not Heating stove

It's not a fuse, but a wire or heating element has burned up. Please TURN OFF the circuit breaker until you repair the problem, or at least until you know what the problem is! You say "in" the stove, so I'm assuming that you mean in the oven. Whichever element it is, whether it's in the oven or on the stovetop, just needs to be removed and checked for continuity with an ohmmeter. Quite frankly, if it IS an element, then you should see a burned-out spot somewhere on it that's pretty obvious. Then you just need to replace the element. If it's a wire, then you will need to repair the wire so that it safely makes contact with the element again. That process is a little more involved than just replacing an element, but let us know what you find. I can describe a wire-repair procedure if need be. ;)
