Main oven is cooking unevenly, one side of oven hotter than other (tested with thermometer)

Have already had fan element replaced a few months ago, is there any side elements that could fail?

SOURCE: How do I fit the main heating element in a De Detrich oven

If it is fan assisted then remove the inner rear panel of the oven there you will see the element, disconnect and replace.
If there is no removable panel, then you will have to remove the oven from the housing, and do it from the rear of the oven.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: It would appear that the main oven element is not working

If it is a fan forced oven, the element is round in shape and goes around the fan blade on the back wall of oven.
To replace: Turn off power!!
-Remove side racks from oven, then remove rear panel.
-You should now see fan blade and fan element.
-You need to remove oven from cavity, then remove rear outer panel.
-You can now access element- it will be held in place by 2 small nuts either side of element wiring connections. Disconnect element wires, unscrew nuts. Element is now removed!
Reverse procedure to reassemble and test. If oven is heating OK, also check main oven thermostat is regulating temperature (ie clicks on and off), as sometimes thermostat can fail if element has blown

Bosch built in double oven: had new element fitted to main fan oven, but now oven keeps on getting hotter does not stop heating up when right temp reached.


This type of problem normally can be ascribed to a defective thermostat. Unfortunately there is no test for a thermostat, it has to be replaced to see if the problem has been sorted out.
One thing you can do is remove the thermostat bulb from the oven and place place it in a position where it will not heat up. Place an oven thermometer in the oven. Switch on and see of the temperature climbs above what you wee seeing before. This is a very much hands on test as you have no control over the temperature that the elements can get to. As soon as you see the temperature reach a point above that seen before, shut down immediately.

Bake element does not work during convection cooking


Hello and welcome to Fixya.

I hadn't seen your post prior to today, so perhaps you've had a remedy presented to you already.

If you have not, reply to this post and I can recommend a few test to perform that will determine the issue with your oven.

Off the top it sounds like a possible faulty convection heating element or the K3 relay on the board is defective.

I'll watch for your reply.

Thank's,

Hi,
Yes the element is not working properly and basically one side is burnt out...this is causing the problems you are having.

Candy double oven purchased 14 months ago. Bottom oven cut out during cooking. Fan and light works no temerature though


It's most likely to be the oven heating element that is 'gone'. You will need to have it replaced.

Uneven cooking in fan oven


There are many reasons for uneven cooking in any oven
These are just a few possibilities.
Not pre- heating oven
Putting too much in the oven, thereby restricting air circulation.
Not putting on correct shelf level.
Use of foil in the oven which can reflect heat.
Badly fitting door.
Perished door seal.
Thermostat not controlling temp properly. Check with oven thermometer.
There plenty of other resons besides these, but these are some of the more important ones.
So do check these points..
If you are still experiencing problems, then you will probably have to call an oven expert in too look at it.
Plz rate my solution
.Thanks.

Oven hotter at the back


You should always preheat oven to operating temperature before cooking anything.
Do not put too much in oven, leave plenty af space for good air circulation.
Do not place any reflective foil or the like on the bottom of oven or shelves, as this reflects heat, and you will get uneven cooking.
Make sure fan is working efficiently if it is fan assisted.

Fan Oven cooks at high temp when on any setting


Sounds like main oven stat is faulty.
Is the stat sensor fixed properly inside the oven?
Could have been disturbed when element fitted

Please leave feed back.

Thermador double oven / Bake wont work /FC code flashed once


I found I have this exact problem. Same bake preheat issue: I can bake if I set broil first. However, the oven doesn't work if I press bake first. The control board has already been replaced a couple times over the years. Is this another replacement??

Creda oven


you might have already thought of this, buy an oven thermometer you can pop in the oven.
I bought one from my local cook shop
I have a the same cooker and similar problem - mine gets hotter by 50 degrees so I set the temperature 50 degrees lower than needed.
I noticed the problem a few years a go and luckily hasn't got any worse.
