Dumb question, i know, but my GE stove has some power going to it, but not enough to make the burners any hotter than 'low' and the oven to get above 100F.  Indicator lights still come on.  At first i tried unplugging it and plugging it back in, and when i moved the plug around in the socket i heard the sounds of arcing.  Now i'm not sure it it's a problem with a loose wire in the plug or a completely different issue of the stove.

 

Thanks for any help.

Hearing the arcing sound when moving the plug around is pointing to the problem right there. You probably have a bad plug or a loose wire there.

Please check it out before its used any. Houses burn down because of that.

After correcting the electrical outlet issue be sure to inspect the terminal block and power cord connections on the range for damage.
