When the inside of the ovens gets hot like that what happens is that the hating leements expands with the heat and when the do the short out on the side of the oven. I just noticed the date but this is still the problem.

Main oven wont come on or the light but the fan does


Hi, I hope I can help you. If you're referring to the overhead fan above the oven, that fac is usually on a separate circuit. The oven itself is connected to a separate circuit breaker, hence, that is why the oven and light won't come on.
Check your circuit breaker box, and see what circuit has tripped. Check to see if there are any burn marks around the breaker before resetting it.
The reason the breakers may trip, is the breaker is old, may have the incorrect rating, or may be linked to other circuits, such that when too many items are all drawing power at once, it will trip the breaker.

Hi,my belling model 664 wh is tripping out just as it reaches set temp on main oven dial,i have just replaced the main oven element, any solutions I would be grateful. Thank you.


Sounds like the amperage draw of the oven is right at the breaker size. Circuit Breakers should not be loaded more than 80%. Breakers take time to trip when they are close to the limit. IF the problem started with the replacement oven element, it may be the wrong one and could be tripping the breaker by drawing too much power.

Otherwise: Wiring or breaker not sized right, maybe another load on the breaker in addition to the oven, possible bad connections causing extra amperage, or wrong the oven element made for a higher amperage oven. In rare cases the breaker might be bad, but this is not likely.

Someone experienced needs to a) identify the breaker size b) verify the wire connected is appropriated sized c) verify the oven's current requirements and d) look for bad connections.

Normally another load would not be on the oven circuit unless a diy person changed the wiring. With those items verified, a clamp on amp meter would be used to verify actual current draw when the oven is on to ensure the load is appropriate for the breaker, wiring and oven. If at this point the load is less than 80% and the breaker still trips, change the breaker.

Oven not heating properly


most common problems:
1. calrod unit not working(heating element) easy replacement
2. breaker tripped.(sometimes a double breaker will only trip one of the circuit breakers so you end up with half power)
good luck

Whirlpool accubake RBS275PDB6 will not heat up to preset temp


I am assuming the lower element is not working well. Go ahead and replace it. But first , go turn your breaker off to the oven and then back on. Often times it can be tripped but not showing due to the other poles not being tripped. The lower element is the cheaper one also.

Broil trips circuit breaker every time


I would start by replacing the breaker. They do become weak over time.

Oven heats up but wont get above 160 degrees


I assume you mean it trips the circuit breaker. If the circuit breaker is good, that means the heating coil is bad, and pulling too much electrical current. Sometimes circuit breakers fail, and trip at say 5 amps when rated at 15 amps. Have you electrician switch that breaker with another one and see if there is a difference. If not, it is a bad heating coil.

During self-cleaning cycle we heard a loud pop and it tripped the breaker. Oven and stovetop (ceremic) still work but we smell the same smell from that cleaning cycle like electrical burning? Is there any...


If any appliance trippes the breaker there is a problem that has to be looked into, no appliance should trip MCBs or RCBs (trips), ISOLATE THE MAINS POWER BEFORE REMOVING ANY PANELS
A visual inspection of the rear is required, also the electrical mains connections. Look into this do not use the appliance until you have resolved the problem, it may turn out an amount of food had been stuck beside one of the heating elements, and causing a smell, better to be safe.
Let me know if you require any further assistance.

We set our wall oven for self-clean and received an error message after about 4 hours that told us to turn off the circuit breaker. We are unable to turn the circuit breaker back on again.


Hi,
If you cannot turn the breaker back on then it is no good...some breakers do take some very firm effort to get them to come on...but the oven may have ruined the circuit breaker...

Intermittent tripping of circuit as oven just reaches temp


Sounds like the oven element is cracked and absorbing moisture when the oven cools down thus causing it to trip. Should buy a new element. there are hundreds of suppliers on the internet.
