NNote from Dan; We were able to use the information here to determine why
our oven was not heating correctly and then contacted a repare man. Thus
saving a little cost and had some knowledge of what was happening.

Hope this comes in handy to someone. Have a great week!!

Oven not working properly? Here are many different common problems and
possible solutions you can solve yourself and then order the parts online to
save money.

There are different types of oven/ranges that are in use today Determine
which type of Oven / Stove / Range you have to troubleshoot properly:

1. Old electric range ovens use a coil heating element called a resistive
coil. This is nothing more than an electrical wire encased in a sheath. They
have flat black coils over rounded burner drip bowls that catch your drips
and spills.

2. The newer glass-ceramic cook top style element produces heat that
radiates through the glass top to the cookware above.

3. Gas ovens / stovetop that use gas and not electricity. These work by
igniting gas and use actual flame on the the stovetop.

4. Newest cook top styles, such as the induction or halogen cook tops
combine the same style to produce more even heating. Some of these ovens
feature thermal limiters or thermostats that regulate the burner system.


Nothing Works, or the Oven / Range / Stovetop Works Only At Certain Times:

1. Home breaker flipped or the fuse blown? Possibly an electrical surge has
flipped the breaker. Check your breaker or fuse box and replace or reset as

2. Power cord plugged in? Grab the plug and wiggle to determine a good

3. Power cord damage? Damaged rubber with wires showing through or the wire
is being pinched can cause issues. Electrical tape is acceptable for
covering damaged wires.

4. A clicking sound could be something wrong with a relay. Check for any
loose connections around the main control board on your oven. The click you
hear is a relay losing power and switching back on. If the clock resets then
something is causing power interruptions to the board.

5. Oven igniter (only on gas oven) The igniter may be to weak to let the
gas valve open. If it glows for around 60 seconds but won’t ignite, the oven
igniter should be replaced.

6. Baking element (at bottom) may have burned out. This is the part that
glows red to bake your food. If it is not glowing there may be a hole in it
that is preventing it from heating. It will need to be replaced.

7. Broiling element (at top) may have burned out. This is the part that
glows red to broil your food. If it is not glowing there may be a hole in it
that is preventing it from heating. It will need to be replaced.

8. The oven control board has relays that turn on and off power. If this is
bad then it will not send the proper v0ltage to the heating elements
therefore needing replaced.

9. A faulty Oven thermostat can cause an oven to not heat. Sometimes the
thermostat contacts can become burned and will need to be replaced.

10. If the above solutions haven’t helped, unplug the oven and
remove the back panel. Make sure the power cord wires connect to a terminal.
If wires are loose resecure them on the screw terminal.

11. Some ranges have fuses under the top of the range. Look
around the elements or on the sides of the unit. Fuses control the
self-cleaning function, timer, clock and other features. To replace a fuse,
unscrew it and replace with the exact same type and size. For circuit
breakers, just push “reset”
