My broiler element does not work. I get no heat but element is good. The bake works fine but the top oven burner does not work.
You will want to check the oven selector switch between black and brown with the oven set for broil for 240 vac if there is 240 vac then the oven switch is bad and will need to be replaced. If there is not 240 vac then check for continuity on the thermal fuse and replace if there is no continuity.
Is this thermal fuse what I need if the buzzer on my timer dosen't work or any button I press doesn't make a sound
The buzzer for the timer and the chime on the touchpad is controlled by the electronic control board not the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse would cause the electronic control to not be lit.
I turned the stove on for the first time since it had been sitting for 6 months.. I set it to 225 degrees.. it cut on and within 10 mins the entire thing shut down and has no power. Nothing on the control panel and the Magnitogorsk don't work. Would this be the thermal fuse that needs replacing?
Answer Hello Brittany,
Yes it is very possible that the thermal fuse is faulty. Also check the terminal block to make sure that you are getting 120 vac across L1 to ground and L2 to ground and 240 vac across L1 to L2. Check the thermal fuse for continuity if no continuity then replace the thermal fuse.
Broiler will not shut Off, only way is shut of the broiler is by the fuse panel. I recently replaced the oven temp. sensor.
Answer Hello Dennis,
The broil element runs through the control board. If it is sending constant power to the element then you would need to replace the control. Also check for broken wires that may short to ground to create a circuit. If broken wire found would need to be repaired.
Broiler was not working so I purchases a new broiler and still not working. What could the problem be?
Answer Cris, Yes, the thermal fuse would be the next check or replacement to make. The fuse is located on the back of the oven, so you'll need to slide the range out and remove the rear cover panel, then you can test or replace the fuse 3196548 If the fuse doesn't solve the issue, then the ERC /lock will need to be repalced 6610469
My Whirlpool electric oven model #GFE461LVS0 has a problem. The oven and the stove top will not heat up.
Answer Hello Kandi,
Verify the breaker hasn't been tripped by turning it off and then back on. Verify 240Vac at the terminal block. Verify continuity through the thermal fuse 3196548. If everything checks out, there is either a harness issue or common and/or ground has been lost from the power supply.
