Question about Kitchen Ranges

Three of the four elements on my Simpson Neptune will not work properly to give any heat levels lower than high. Would replacing these elements with new ones solve the problem or is the problem likely to be in the switches?Where in Wellington could I get replacement elements?

I have a simpson neptune and 3 of the 4 elements now only work on hot? What would be causing this?

if this is a electric stove, it sounds as if one of the fuses needs replacing. Give it a try!

My oven is not working, every thing else is. simpson neptune thanks

You need to get a meter that measures ohm and unplug the stove and take the back off, you use the meter to check the heating elements. They do burn out.

I have GE model#JKP45WOP2WG double oven wall unit. Lower oven isn't heating up properly. Bottom of lower oven doesn't seem as hot as the top of the oven... replaced oven sensor, not

Most double wall ovens are technically two separate oven boxes. The lower oven box has its bake, boil elements, high limit thermostat and ofcourse its own oven sensor. If the lower oven box boil is working good and less heat on bake feature may suggest that the bake element is burned out and only getting preheated with boil element. Just a suggestion here

I have a 'Simpson 2001 Thermaflow Oven' and a few months ago, i was heating it up, and i heard a pop, from then on my oven has not heated up, i cannot seem to find what is wrong with it!! Please...

I would say that the oven element has blown. It is common especially if you have a fan forced model. Make sure the fan works before you go buying a new element as the replacement will fail early. Simpson ovens have to be removed from the wall cavity to replace the fan and the element. Make sure you tuen the power off before doing anything...
Give the parts supplier your model number so that you get the fight element ( and fan) if necessary.

Stove top elements on high only

Yarsu Spiros

I like you purchased one of these thinking you can trust the name simpson(pope) but after putting on a fry pan with sum saucages in and having a major fire in my kitchen, I through the heap of junk out and bought a *** oven (current technologie) howerver to answer your question you have pulled the elements and trays out to kleen them (that seems normal) but you need to make sure the element terminals are clean and so are the spring clip things they fit into, use a peice of emery cloth (not wet & dry) this should fix it

alternativly not buy this junk again and get a proper stove

New Heating Element; Has Power But Not Heating Up

Let's go over a few things: 
  • Your unit uses 220 volts to provide heating.  Some elements are wired to one of the two 'legs' of the 220 giving you 'low'.  High uses 220
220 consists of three wires...two 'hot' (red and black) and a neutral which is white.  Neutral to hot will give you to hot 220.  Measure accordingly and use care!  Neutral and the frame of the stove are effectively the same terminal...for safety.
  • You say some of the wires are burnt or a fuse is blown.  They need to be replaced with proper wire...not just any kind.  There is high temp insulated wire available from many ACE and other home stores or parts shops.  It needs to be thick enough, too.  Make all connections carefully and fully onto clean terminals.  Tighten clockwise.
  • Check the voltage coming to the element on various settings as above.  If you only get 110/120, you have an open supply issue which needs to be found.
Look for: loose wires, corrosion, burned insulation to ground.
