Seaward Princess Stove Question

I have a friend who has one of these. He has 110 volt power at the panel but no apparent power at the stove. Before he opens things up he wants to know if there is a breaker/thermal in the stove or another type of safety switch.

Any source for on-line manuals would be appreciated.

Seaward Princess Stove question

I suggest contacting the company directly. Seaward Products

When we purchased a new seaward princess stove we had questions about getting oven door off and back on again (not as easy as it might be). They were very extremely helpful. The owner even called and worked with my husband over the phone.

During his first phone call to us the owner wanted to know why we were even purchasing a new princess stove as he thought our 1980 original one should have been fixed (oven didn't work and the stove looked like it had seen some hard use before we purchased the boat).

I have a Seaward princess 3 burner with oven. The power for the burners can be interupted by the cover switch. If it gets bent no power to your burners. You also have the selector switch which diverts power to either the top burners or the oven but not both at the same time. By deactvating the little side catches the entire burner assembly can be lifted up and power measurements can be made at various switch points but everything should be accessable from those points.Be carefull, 120 volts under the cover that is over the switches can bite. Usually if the installation was properly done, power will go from a breaker dedicated for the range in the ac switch panel. If there isn't, it may have been installed with a fuse of some type. I think it should be rated at 20 amps. I would gladly email you a copy of the manual but it is on my boat which I just left. Back in the middle east for one last year.
