Most Frequent Causes for Stove heating element not working

Cause 1Surface Element Switch

The surface element switch sends voltage to the surface element coil. If the switch is defective, the surface element will not work. If there is another element of the same size on the stove, try switching the elements. If the surface element still doesn’t work, the surface element switch is likely defective. The surface element switch cannot be tested or repaired—if you suspect the switch is defective, replace it.

Cause 3Radiant Surface Element

The most common cause when the surface element won't work is the radiant surface element itself. The radiant surface element - or heating element - can burn out similar to a light bulb. If the surface element won't work and it doesn't have continuity, it will need to be replaced. The radiant surface element is not repairable.

Cause 9Loose or Burnt Wire Connection

These wires commonly burn out near the heating element. To determine if a wire has burned out, inspect the wires leading to the element. If a wire is burned out, it will often be visibly burnt.

Cause 10Incoming Power Problem

It is possible that the range is not receiving proper voltage. Electric ranges require 220 volts of alternating current. If the range is receiving significantly less voltage, the surface element won’t work. To determine if the electrical outlet has sufficient voltage, use a multimeter to test the incoming power at the wall socket.
