If the gas range does not work at all, make sure it is receiving power. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter by plugging in something else.
If the range does not work, often the problem is a dirty or clogged burner. Make sure the burner is clean.
If you have a pilotless model, it uses a spark igniter to ignite the gas, which works in combination with a spark switch (located on the burner gas valve) and a spark module. Because it is not simple to test these parts and find our which one is defective, we recommend contacting us.
If your electric stove is giving you trouble, make sure it is receiving power. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for a power with a voltmeter. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the appliance. If this is the case, the wiring and terminal block require repair or replacement.
If you have recently cleaned the stove, your might not have seated the element terminals properly when reinstalling them. Lift the stove top to take a look. Also, make sure you did not knock the terminal block out of the holder.
If the top element works partially or does not become red hot at the high setting, the element might be plugged in to a burned out receptacle. If this is the case, replace both the element and the receptacle. You can usually tell when the element itself burns out because it might have small holes or bubbles on the coil. If the element is defective, replace it.
