Question and Answers

Q:

Oven and stovetop won't heat up.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The surface elements and the oven elements require 220-240 volts in order to heat. The clock/oven control only requires 110-120 volts to power up. Since the oven elements and the surface elements fail to heat, I suspect one of the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the range may have tripped off. Locate the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the range and reset both circuit breakers. Flip both circuit breakers Off and On 2-3 times and then see if the oven and surface elements will heat. If it does not heat, the voltage supply should be measured at the back of the range where the power cord is connected. The terminal block will have three terminals. The voltage must measured across the two outer terminals and it must measure 220-240 volts. NOTE: I do not recommend measuring the voltage unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I suggest calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

If 220-240 volts is measured, then the wiring between the terminal block and the control and the wiring between the control and oven elements will need to checked for any burnt wire connections.

Your range may or may not need any parts. You may just need to reset the house circuit breakers dedicated for the range or it may have burnt wire connection somewhere in the range.

I added an image below of the wiring diagram. I traced the line one and line two voltage supplies in red and black. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before searching for any burnt wires or wire connections.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
