Landlord purchased a used stove to go in a renovated home. Upon first using it my wife and I realized both front elements will not turn down. The front elements continue to glow red no matter what setting is selected. This causes whatever your cooking to overheat of course. The landlord came by to check it out and while she was there the right rear element flashed and made an audible pop when she turned it on. It also had a burnt electrical smell. After I shut the breaker off and turned it back on it seemed to work. I turned the breaker back off just to be safe.

It seems both tear elements worked properly before the flash and pop incident.

Hi,

You have a major short in this range, tell the landlord to return it and get her money back. Then tell her to go buy a NEW RANGE, preferably Whirlpool, Maytag, KitchenAid, or Amana.

Thanks for the quick reply Jake. I thought as much, but told her I'd look into it. Now to tell her the bad news.

Yes, its always best to buy used appliances from a reputable used appliance repair store that offers at least a 30 day warranty.:)
