Hi, I'm in the process of mapping out the electrical circuits in my house because I wanted to upgrade to a circuit breaker switch style setup instead of the old fuse setup that I have now and also rearrange some circuits and such...... My problem is while I was mapping out the circuits I noticed that my Stove/Range (Electric)has no fuse protecting it. I unscrewed every fuse twice and still the stove is on....What is the problem and what is my next step??????...I do have a basic knowledge of electricity. The plug is a 220V type and the circuit runs all the way back to the fuse panel. I have 230 coming in at the panel but I only have eight fuses that are running off one leg of the 230 coming in and I have a separate circuit breaker for my dryer and my A/C running off the 2nd leg...

Darkroast,

Do you have two pullout fuseholders at the top of your fuse box? If so, the main pullout is on the left and the range pullout is on the right.

These are usually 60 amp services. If not it is possible someone put the range directly to the taps inside the panel and are protecting it with the main fuses. If all is accessible and you can see the range wiring coming to the panel you could look to see where the wiring is terminated.
