What to check if the oven is not working

RANGE

Will the cooktop turn on?

Some ranges may be equipped with Cooktop Control Lock. Look for "Control Lock" on the range control console, then reset by, typically, pushing & holding for 3 seconds.  To locate the Cooktop Control Lock feature for your particular model (certain models), look in the Table of Contents in your Use and Care Guide.

  • If the gas cooktop operates, the gas regulator shut-off valve may not be open.
