Range/oven stopped heating after breaker tripped


Our oven and glass top range stopped working following a tripped breaker that we restarted. The clock and the indicator lights say that it's working, but it's not heating up. Ideas?

Check the outlet and make sure that you're getting 240.

you'll need to look at the outlet and then the cord where it attaches to the range. May even be a bad breaker

I'd call a service tech - what triggered the breaker? An internal flaw, a loose wire - etc. However much I love DIY when it comes to something such as an oven I'd make full use of the service warranty.

Range/oven stopped heating after breaker tripped


After living off the microwave long enough, I'm now going to do this. I need to buy a digital multimeter, but I was running comparisons and some say they test continuity, while others test resistence and others test voltage. Is there a reason I'd want one kind of digital multimeter over another?

multi-meter means that it tests multiple things
voltage, continuity, and resistance.
you don't need a digital output for any of these functions.

The best choice in basic testers:

Yeah agree. Respectfully; if you have ask- don't buy one. call a pro for any electrical problems..for yourself just buy a volt stick-$10-20. that will tell you=hot/not hot.
