Overview

Repairing a range, stove or oven can seem like a big task, but our customers tell us how easy it is every single day. To help you diagnose the symptom of a range, stove or oven that will not start, we’ve created this guide of the parts most likely to fix the no heat problem. Use this information to understand how a range or oven works, how to determine which part is the cause and how to get the right part for your model. You can also get more details on your specific range, stove or oven by entering your model number into the search box.

Procedure

 

First Step

1. Check the broil element is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn’t working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.

 

Second Step

2. Control the internal fuses, a wiring or component problem could have caused a fuse to blow. A blown fuse is an indication that a component has shorted or failed, and the problem will need to be corrected. Most ovens that use fuses will have an indication of the circuits that are affected by a particular fuse. If an oven fuse has blown, then you should inspect the oven element and the associated wiring to determine the cause before replacing the fuse. Do not change the rating of the fuses. The same will apply to a fuse labeled for a surface burner. Disconnect power from the range or oven before attempting service.
