The oven will heat up, then after a few minutes the circuit braker pops off. If I reset the breaker, the oven will heat for a little while before it pops off again.
Answer Hello Willy,
The breaker is tripped by excessive current flow. This could be a bad breaker, a worn receptacle, or a loose connection at the terminal block. It really shouldn't be too hard to locate as an excessive current flow will normally cause a discoloration of the insulation on the wire. The first place I would look is the terminal block. Unplug the unit and try to turn the wires by hand. If they will turn, this is a point of high resistance and could be the root of the issue.
My kennmore oven doesnt heat up neither does the broiler but the stove top works.
Answer Bryan, You'd have to suspect a damaged "common" wire between the element and ERC/Control or the ERC. It's not likely both elements would fail at the same time. You don't have a bad breaker or power supply, or the cooktop burners wouldn't work. You'll need to turn the power off to the range, and remove both rear cover panels to access the wiring and control. Thanks and Good Luck
Baking Element not working, Broil Element is working. What could be bad?
Answer Hello Danny! Check to make sure you are getting 240v to the bake element. If you are, the bake element needs to be replaced. The bake element is part number 316225001. If you are not getting 240v to the element, you will need to check for any loose wiring and replace the electronic control as it sends the signals and voltage to the element. The electronic control is part number 316455420. Thanks!
Long story short,.... Top of the stove works, but the oven stopped working! I pushed the buttons on top of stove and set the temp. ,but no heat. So what do I do now?
Answer Hello Karen. Test the bake element 316225001 and make sure it is good. It should read closed for continuity. If it is good, you will want to check across the wires going to the element. With the unit set on bake, you should have 240 volts going to the bake element. If not, you will need to replace the clock assembly 316455420. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
