Why has baumatic B501SS oven covered in light gray coating inside when heated, now not working


It sound like the heating element burned out. Check the element and see if there is a burned spot or blister somewhere along the element. If so the element will need replacing.

Main oven causes trip switch to trip out when `I turn the dial to switch on. Top oven is fine.


Likely the element is shorted in the main oven. The Calrod elements short usually at the bends and if the breaker doesn't trip they burn a hole in them and arc. You can USUALLY see a different discoloration at teh failure point. Check both upper and lower elements as preheat probably uses both. Use a dental mirror if necessary to see under and over. Use bright light.

From what you describe, that would be the solution, but first check if there is power to the element connections using a multimeter or a test light. Please take care when working on appliances with the power switched on

Hi, the elements on my duke e101-e 240v single phase convection oven keep going out every 3 to six months...is there any other reason why they would go out so often?


Check that the elements are high quality, dont use cheap elements, also replace all the elements and all are working, do not leave the door open while heating for along time. Do not power cold water on them while hot to clean let them cool down gradually.make sure the termina conection to are not loose during replacement. swicth off when you dont need to use for a long

Warming up, big POP sound and totally stopped working.


Hello- Wow-  Sounds like the failure of one of the elements.  Sometimes there's a bright arc welding flash with it too. Look inside oven with flash light and inspect elements. If one of them is burned through, then it must be replaced. In some instances, control boards and other circuits can also be affected, but most work just fine when the element is replaced.     Please acknowledge this posted solution if helpful.                                   Have more info if needed- thanks-  Ed

How to patch hold in electric oven?


use some high heat two part epoxy let it set up just a little and then plug the hole. you can use titainum putty at a bering supply store but it's expensive but is a good fix.

Cleaning above the grill element


I would not advise you to remove the element unless you feel competent to do so.
Best thing to do is to put the grill full on and let all the fat and grease burn itself off.
you will not hurt anything by doing this.
Make sure you have the griil door open and your house door.
Plz rate my solution.
thanks.
