Hello and thanks for using this service.Do you have a voltmeter?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.


Expert:  ApplianceTech replied 2 years ago.
Without a voltmeter it is going tough to know what is going on inside the oven. You say it is a new oven that has never been installed? Did you have to put a new power cord on it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

It has been installed and I have used it for a year and 3 months but I turned the oven on yesterday and it did not heat. Had used it Wednesday.

I can try to help you out to track down the problem, but you will have to get a voltmeter so you can check voltages on the back of the range. Would you like to get one and continue this weekend? You can purchase an inexpensive one at your local hardware or big box store. It will come in handy in the future for other testing purposes, like checking batterys etc.

No, I would not be able to do it. Handicapped.Guess I Just loss my money. Thank you anyway.

Expert:  ApplianceTech replied 2 years ago.
I would not throw out the range based on what you say. It is probably a minor problem, most likely a thermal fuse. There is not just a reset or something simple you can do to make it work. Do you not want to call a service tech for some reason?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I will call a service person tomorrow.

Expert:  ApplianceTech replied 2 years ago.
Thats sounds like a good idea. I would have loved to be able to help you on the problem, but there is only so much we can do in a chat. I am sure the service tech will be able to find out quickly what is wrong. I know I could not help you directly tonight , but were you satisfied with my effort to help you out?
