On Wednesday we had new appliances delivered to the house. The installation was included in the purchase price so I let the retailer (not a big box but a well known and regarded local appliance shop) install everything. We have a double wall oven (JennAir) that was replacing a 14 year old Maytag double wall oven. The old oven and the new oven require 240v.
I chatted with the guys doing the installation on Weds morning and then headed to work. When I got home everything looked great, as directed by the installer, I was to turn the oven to bake at 350 for one hour to burn off some of the coatings put on the oven out of the factory. All works fine - oven has power, lights, etc. But no heat. Zilch - no bake, no broil.
Fast forward to today and I've since pulled the oven out of the wall and I'm not registering 240v, I'm getting 125v. My guess is that the oven is fine but that it's not getting enough power to heat. My hope is that this isn't an issue with the wiring but I'm really struggling with another reason - everything was fine with the old oven which arguably drew more power. Could it be the junction box connection? (I wasn't able to get the oven out far enough to check the connections) Perhaps a bad breaker?
