I saw that happening on a stove once and the strange thing was the large top burner had two fuses and one was burnt,
I replaced it and the oven worked............
So Check "ALL" the fuses..............
Both oven elements are only putting out about 50% about 320F max. Fuses look OK. I've kind of eliminated problems with the elements themselves as I can't see them both partially failing at the same time. I'm wondering if the problem is with the switch or the thermostat. If anyone reading this has experienced the same problem I'd sure appreciate letting me know. Thanks, JLM
Ever thought of plugging it into 220v instead of 110v, Nicola?
Good thinking, someone probably changed the electrical circuitry behind the stove when we weren't looking. (You are as pathetic as Putz) but it's great fun getting to laugh at you Assholes)
Thanks Sleepy. My son did check the fuses, but I'm going to take another look at them. I was wondering if the problem might be with the switch or thermostat.
If it's not a fuse, and the only sure way to test them is with a continuity tester, because a fuse can be burnt and look ok...
It could be the thermocouple (temperature sensor)and for that you better call an electrician unless you're familiar with wiring and/or electronics and you have a multimeter
Yeah, I've come to that conclusion, will call one tomorrow. I think the range is pretty old and the wife is wanting a self cleaning oven so if I have a couple of bucks in my jeans come Xmas she might be in for a surprise.
