electric range not heating

The oven or burners do not heat up. The clock/controls work - stove is about 2 years old. Checked the circuit breaker - ok. Is it a stove problem or electric problem? Who to call?

I would help the technicians who frequent this group, if you would provide the make and model number of the range.

Barb, turn the circuit breaker all the way to the off position, then back on. Check the stove. If its a relatively new installation, there will be a large outlet on the wall behind the stove. With a proper tester you could check for 240 volts at the outlet, which if you have, you would call the appliance repair and if not or you can't tell, call an electrician

As someone noted, you need 240V to operate the heating elements and only 120V for what is working. They are supplied by the same circuit, but it is possible that one may be out without the other one out. Go back to the circuit breaker box and find the TWO breakers or the one that controls two circuits and turn it off and back on. I suspect that is where the problem is.
With luck that will be all there is. However normally breakers don't just trigger. There may be another problem.

Hi,
An appliance tech can check it out for you.

Could be either or both. *Sounds* like the 120 volt stuff is working but the 240 volt stuff is not. -Some- possible trouble makers:
- 1/2 tripped house breaker in the house fuse box - one of the 2 fuses blown for the range in the house fuse box - burnt wire where the power wires enter the range - burnt cord - burnt cord plug recepticle jeff. Appliance Repair Aid http://www.applianceaid.com /
