I have changed oven switch plus new elements and still oven does not work pls assist thks


Oven temperature will be controlled by a thermostat which might be separate from the oven switch. There possibly is also a thermal fuse or breaker to protect against serious overheating in the case of thermostat failure.

One of those devices or the wiring or connections is probably faulty and continuity should be checked through the circuit with an appropriate meter.

Replaced failed circular element in main oven. Still not working and code 555 displayed when power turned back on


Make sure you have 220 volts at the wall plug for the oven. If not try resetting the circuit breaker for it. You may need to replace the breaker if it is several years old.

Frigidaire CPDS389CC2 OVEN ELEMENTS NOT WORKING


Hello Scott Plante - Try resetting the range by unplugging it or flipping the breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If any proves to be ineffective and oven does not bake or broil contact a professional to move forward accurately. Range could possibly be experiencing an issue with a wiring failure, EOC and/or faulty elements which would need further diagnosing

GE Oven JKP56...after Self Clean bottom element in upper oven stays hot. Breaker off, let cool, breaker on...bottom element gets warm (all controls off). the breaker is off for now. Please help.


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Leave the power off remove the screws from under the panel and lift up to open the control panel. There are reset-able fuses in there check them by pressing the center red button if they are ok check the screen in front of the fan make sure its not blocked up it will cause this problem too.If all that is ok then the relay on the control fused closed and you would have to replace the control board with the relays on it.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Switched bottom oven on, then noticed it had tripped fuse for cooker in main fuse box. Swithed it back on and it wouldn't heat up. The fan and light were ok! Top ove? grill works ok still.


sounds like you have a heating element burned out. Look real close at the heating elements and you may see a hole burned in the metal tube. This is a sure sign of a bad element. Some elements are easy to unplug. Others a real pain. Always unplug and or turnoff breaker prior to unscrewing anything. If you fine the bad element just unplug and other element may work OK. Best to get your model number and search net for new element.

I have a GE Profile JT952series Electric Double Oven and the keypad is not turning on the bottom oven


Check your breaker box to make sure the breakers are ON.. these typically are double throw breakers.. it is possible one of them has been thrown open.. so flip that double throw off and back on.. then check..I have seen one side of these breakers fail.. unusual.. but it happens.. then a replacement is in order.. regardless. visually it may appear the breaker is closed..but upon closer inspection.. one side may be "spongy/open". There are always exceptions..so examine the breaker box carefully.

If one breaker is open..it would be wise to keep an eye on things to determine how it got that way in the first place. If the breaker will not close or throws/pops again..you either have a bad breaker or a wiring problem..in some cases the element may have grounded out..or burned a wire.. etc.

Next thing to check for is a bad element.. Remember..this is a 220volt hot circuit with a high amperage breaker.. BE CAREFUL.. USE CAUTION.. Failure to do so could result in serious injure or DEATH.

Turn off power at the breaker box to the oven.. test the working over to make sure the power is OFF.

Remove the oven racks
Remove the screws at the base of the element

Pull the element toward you

Note how the wire(s) are connected

Disconnect the wires.. checking for broken or lose terminals..if lose or broken..repair.

You will need a volt ohm meter for the following..

Test the Element for continuity. Place each probe on the terminal ends (manual will have ratings) generally if you have continuity it probably works..

Test for a grounded/short.. one probe to element the other to terminal end..if you have continuity.. it's shorted out. Test both terminals

Replace with a new one if needed.. reverse procedure. Turn on the power .. and test for proper operation.

Again.. 220 VOLTS..HIGH AMPERAGE.. USE CAUTION..not doing so could result in injury or DEATH

After you have done the above..and get an all pass..then it's on to controllers and temp sensors.

Best of luck

My wall oven's heating elements stopped working. Clock, enterior light still work.Model REG74BL*3


Sounds like one leg of the 220v ele. supply has tripped. All thats working, works off of one leg. The elements need both legs to heat. Find your breaker for the oven, reset breaker. It may look ok, but flip the breaker off and then back on. This should fix it.

Bottom oven not working


A tripped breaker or blown fuse on an electric oven or cook-top, combined with an element that has stopped working, is usually a sign of a shorted, then blown (if the fuse or breaker no longer fail) element.

If you know how to use an ohmeter, you can pull the element, disconnect the wires from each end, then measure the resistance between each end of the element, and each element to the outer sheath.

A good element has just a few ohms of resistance between the wire connection points, and infinite resistance from the wire connection points to the outer sheath. Any readings other than that means the element is bad and need's to be replaced.
