Hi Sean,

It sounds like one of your dual breakers is tripped, and that will cause this problem because your only getting 120 volts on one breaker, where you need 240 volts to heat properly.:)

Go to your house breaker box and locate the dual breaker for the range and reset them both by turning both OFF, then ON again.

Jake I never even thought of that. And it seems you are right. I have the old style fuse pannel and one of the 40a barrel fuses seems to be dead. I'm going to replace them today. Thanks again
