Tip & How-To about Whirlpool RBS275PD Electric Single Oven

Broiling and baking element in my electric oven are not heating.

Hi.

If both broiling and baking element are not heating, then the most common fault causing the problem is a defective temperature probe.

The probe is located inside the oven cavity.
On most ovens there is only one temperature sensor, connected in series on the circuit from electroning oven control to elements. The probe will control both baking and broiling element, opening the circuit when limit temperature is reached.
When the probe fails, it will affect both baking and broiling function.

The temperature probe is tested reching the probe, cutting or disconnecting its wiring, and testing the probe at room temperature, with a multimeter set on impedance at Rx1. If the multimeter reads no continuity (circuit open), then the probe must be replaced.

If the temperature probe is good, then parts that may be responsible for the fault are oven electronic control and wiring. Having both elements failing at the same time would be rather unusual.

Regards.

Cant get the fan oven to heat up is this a element problem or a program problem.


Hi.

If the fan assisted cooking programs are the only one not working and the oven is otherwise heating and cooking, then problems can be:

Fan motor.
Wiring harness to fan.
The relay that activates the fan. That is usually part of control module.

If instead the fan oven is not heating at all, then check if problem is with broiling, baking, or with both. If the problem affects both broiling or baking replace the temperature probe. before replacement the probe can be tested using an Ohm meter. The probe will read about 1080 Ohms at room if good.

If problem is only with one of baking/broiling functions, then test elements or valve/ignitors, depending if oven is gas or electric.

I have a SMEG SE398X-5 wall oven that does not heat up. The light inside & the controls comes on but will not heat up so there is power to the controls & lights but not to the element & fan.


Hi.


If both baking and broiling element do not heath above a certain temperature, then the part to be replaced is the temperature probe, still located inside the oven cavity.

A faulty temperature probe will keep circuit to the heating elements open, affecting both broiling and baking function.

The temperature sensor can be tested removing it from the oven cavity and reading Ohms on the sensor wires. If the circuit is open at room, then the temperature probe must be replaced.

the oven wont heat up.


Hi.

Since the oven has two heating elements, if the oven does not heat up on any condition, and both broiling and baking element are not working, then the most common fault causing the problem is a faulty temperature probe.

The temperature probe is located inside the oven cavity.
On most ovens there is only one temperature sensor, connected in line on the circuit from electronic oven control to baking and broiling element.
When the probe fails, it will affect both baking and broiling function.

The temperature probe is tested reaching the probe, cutting or disconnecting its wiring, and testing the probe at room temperature, with a multimeter set on impedance at Rx1. If the multimeter reads no continuity (circuit open), then the probe must be replaced.

If the temperature probe is good, then parts that may be responsible for the fault are oven electronic control and wiring. Having both elements failing at the same time would be rather unusual.

If only one element is failing, then the fault is probably the element. In that case you can test the element removing it from the cavity, and testing Ohms on the element. If circuit is open , then the element must be replaced.

Neither the oven or broil element comes on. No error code appears, any thoughts?
