    The oven has worked perfectly for 10 years then tonight we noticed that it would not heat all the way up. It got as high as 350 but could not get up to 450 which is what the dial was set at for more than on hour.

SOURCE: electric oven too hot

difficult to see what you have done here! can you come back with some info: do you have an earth trip fitted in your consumer unit? how many wires are fitted to the element? did you touch any other wiring except those connected to the element?

It could be the oven element (behind the cover plate in the back of the oven), or the fan not blowing the heat into the oven.

You need to replace the round fan oven element located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover where the fan is located.

We cooked pizza at 500 something popped and now our oven cooks but not right , any ideas


If you have an electric range, look at both the top and bottom elements while oven is cold. Look for a rough spot like a hole in the element. You may have just burned out one of the elements. Sometimes they go bad without any marks. Turn on oven to about 350 and watch the bottom element to see if it gets red hot. Then set for broil and watch the top for the same red hot glow. If either does not glow red after 5 to 10 minutes, that element is bad.

If electric turn the oven to bake and look at the bottom element. If if does not turn red hot, it may be defective.

My oven still doesnt work after replacing heating element


it could either be a hot spot in the element where it can no longer pass all the current needed for proper operation in heating(look for a discolored spot on it,it may be whitish and dimpled from heat) or secondly,it could be the oven thermocouple located on the inside top of the oven cavity

RATIONAL COMBI OVEN ELEMENT GLOWING RED -IS THIS NORMAL?


your oven is electric yeah? the hot air element shouldnt be glowing like that, it glows with the door open? the oven has a over temp stat so if the oven got too hot then it would trip out, if it does then the solid state relays will have to be changed, but if it carries on as normal then shouldnt worry

Heating elementglowing bright red funny smell


I
make sure the fan is working o/k, because if it is not, then the element will get bright red hot.
If the fan is working o/k, then the element will still get red hot, but not bright red.
If the fan is not working, then it needs replacing.

Hi, my oven HOTPOINT UY46X is heating but not getting red hot. My husband has checked the fuse. Do you have any idea wha his could be?


Sounds like it could be low power as in only getting 120 to the element instead of 240. I would measure the power to the element and if ok the element will need replaced. Eric

Oven not heating


If the element only works partially or not getting red hot at the "Hi" setting, the problem might be with a burned out receptacle that the element plugs into. If this is the case, replace both the element and the receptacle.

You can usually tell when the element itself burns out. It might have small holes or bubbles on the coil. Replace the element, if found defective.

Oven heating element stays on


If element stays on even with oven turned off you probably have a bad main board. A relay on board is probably stuck on. If it stays on, but at a reduced heat...not getting red hot, it may be from a shorted wire causing 110 volts to get to element.
