Where is the fuse on a stove?

Look for a removable panel, usually near the stove controls or near where the power comes in. Most ranges use plug fuses, the type found in old electrical panels. They have a threaded base, like a light bulb, and a flat, glass top marked with an amperage rating.

Where is the fuse on a GE electric stove?

The fuse is usually located in the main house fuse box on the back of your unit. The location may vary with different models, so refer to your unit's manual. If the fuse looks smoky or black, it is likely blown. Replace it; purchase a fuse from a retail, hardware or appliance store.

Do electric stove elements wear out?

Bad Switch. The heat-sensitive contact inside a stove switch can wear out or can get covered with carbon deposits. When this happens, it may not make contact or, conversely, it may never disconnect. The result of the latter condition is that you can't control the temperature of the burner.
