Customer Question
I was using the in...
I was using the in convecton oven and it stopped working, I then tried the stove top and it would not turn on at all. I went and checked the breakers and they were still on. I kind of new this because because the oven fan was still on. I can turn on the oven and it lights up like it is working but it is not. Is there A fuse somewhere in or on the oven or range top? Any other suggestions? I really cant afford to call a repair man..

I guess not what is that
Appliance Technician: Sean F., Customer Service replied 2 years ago

Its for test power. What I would like you to do is the go back out to your breaker box and turn off the breaker and then turn it back on. I know you said the break was still on. But sometimes they look on but really are not.

The clock works
Appliance Technician: Sean F., Customer Service replied 2 years ago

OK. Without a multi meter its going to be tough to figure out. The only other thing I can suggest is to pull out the range and unplug it. And follow the cord back to the range and you should see a panel that can be removed where you can see where the cord connects to the range and see if the cord looks burnt.

I did pull it out but i know that there is electricity because the lights work on the on the clock the clock works and oven lights come on it just doesn't heat up or work
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Is it possible that I'm not getting enough electricity because I obviously have electricity. I'm really pretty dumb at this stuff
Appliance Technician: Sean F., Customer Service replied 2 years ago

This is a 240 volt electric range. That mean you have 2 legs of 120 volts coming into the unit. That's how you 240 volts. Chances are you are only getting one leg coming into the oven and only allowing the clock to work and nothing else.

is this something you think my electrician can fix? Unfortunately I'm going through a very bad financial time right now and he would be able to probably help me for next to nothing. If that is it will he need a part?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Sean I did pull the oven out but I did not remove the box on the back of the oven. If I do is that where the wire would be burned out?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
is that it ? It says that i have paid so we are done
Appliance Technician: Sean F., Customer Service replied 2 years ago

Yes. Now that box should only have one or two screw holding it on. I don't want you to mistaken it for the whole back panel. If you do not see burnt wired we will then need a electrical multi meter. Don't forget to unplug it.

No where not done. I won't hit finish on my side until we find out what is wrong.

we're not done. Sorry for the misspelling.

Appliance Technician: Sean F., Customer Service replied 2 years ago

From my understanding you have a friend that has a meter but you won't talk to him until tomorrow. So if you don't find any burnt wires we will need the meter. But if you do find a burnt wire let me know. I will be stepping away for the rest of the day and will check back in later.

Was your friend able to check 240 volts at the incoming power?

Appliance Technician: Sean F., Customer Service replied 2 years ago
