Why my stove is not working?

Make sure they are sitting straight in their proper positions.
Check to see if power is getting to the unit. Does anything turn on–even a light? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Then you may have to replace the power cord to the stove, and the terminal block that the wire is attached to. There may be a broken or burned wire at the back of the stove. If you repair any of the wires, use only proper appliance-grade wire and wire connectors.

Heating elements eventually burn out. Sometimes, when an element burns out, you can see that the coil burns in two, or blisters and bubbles.

When your stove heating element burns out, you have to replace it because they are not repairable. If, when the heating element burns out, the infinite switch that controls it also fails, you have to replace it too.

If the top burners are not lighting

A gas unit will need the pilot light adjusted or relit from time to time, but most problems with this type of range should be left to a appliance technician. You can, however, clean the burner ports with a paper clip when your burner flames are uneven. Check your surface burners to see if they have removable caps and wash them in a mixture of ammonia with hot water. When your burner flames are too high, noisy, or the flame is yellow, have the gas company adjust the air gas mixture. When your pilot light is lit and properly adjusted but a burner will not light, it is often because the burner or pilot ports are clogged. To clean them you will need to lift the top of your unit and lift out the burner assembly. Use a straightened paper clip to unclog the burner and pilot pots and then wash the burner head in ammonia mixed with hot water. Thoroughly dry the burner head before you replace it to insure that moisture will not interfere with it lighting.
