SMEG OVEN BRAND NEW WON'T HEAT


This tutorial will show you how to check your Smeg element and how to replace your Smeg cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
  • Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Smeg manual.
  • If your Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
  • When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.

We have a Magic Chef gas oven (model # CPL1100BDW) without electronic ignition. The oven isn't working. The oven pilot is out, can't get it to light, and the oven will not light - (obviously)....


Hello & Welcome to FixYa
If the pilot is clean and still won't light then the problem is with the safety valve that won't open and so needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I cannott get oven to turn on, asssume it is with the timer as light & grilll work. Model no 6381902


Light and grill work. I assume that the oven indicator wont light when you turn the oven on. If so the timer is probably in automatic mode. Set the timer to manual mode and the oven should work. If the indicator light is coming on at the moment the oven element is probably faulty.

Kenmore gas oven 362.7163191 wont light, what could be the problem ?


The glow bar ignitor in the oven is going bad. Remove the oven racks. Remove the base pan in the oven. This gives you access to the glow bar.
Turn the gas off to the oven. Place a clamp on amp meter on one wire of the ignitor and turn the oven on to Bake. If the amp draw is 3.2 or less,replace the glow bar ignitor.

Check the amp draw on the ignitor. If 2.9 amps or less, replace the ignitor. If 2.9 amps or more, replace the gas safety valve.
