Electric Oven Does Not Heat


  • No power to unit
  • After self-clean unit experienced an issue
  • Thermal cut out tripped
  • Cooling fan issue
  • Control or relay board errors
  • Bake Element issue

Core Issue:

  • E Series, L Series, M Series Wall Oven, or Dual Fuel (DF) Range oven does not heat; oven does not get hot
  • Oven does not work or heat after using the self-clean feature
  • Oven displays LO during preheat
  • Oven does not reach set preheat temperature
  • Multiple, some, or all mode settings not heating
  • Electric oven broiler not working

Steps to Verify Issue:

  1. LO is not an error code or message and indicates that the oven is currently preheating; this is normal operation.
  2. If a self-clean was recently performed, verify the self-clean cycle has completed and the unit was properly shut off afterwards. Refer to No Heat After Self Clean for more information.
  3. For double ovens, try the other oven to see if it heats properly.
  4. If some or all settings are not heating, confirm the desired mode is turned on.
  5. Verify the unit is not in showroom mode.
  6. Turn the home circuit breaker to the unit off for 30 seconds then back on again. Then retest the unit operation.
  7. If error messages appear, no further troubleshooting advice available.
