The first thing that goes bad is the element, electric stoves work like the light switch on the wall and light bolt. the element is like the light bolt and the thermostat works like the light switch on the wall. and like the light bolt they do go bad often. so the element needs replacing. but before that i check for power to the element, making sure the thermostat supplies electricity.

My oven does not work, range is ok


The thermocouple or thermal capillary is not the only cause of failure; a burned-out or broken heating element is more likely the problem in an electric range. You can check the element by unplugging the range, disconnecting one of the wires to the element, then testing the element for continuity using an ohmmeter. Access to the burner connections varies by model. If you see a couple of screw heads inside the oven where the ends of the element meet the back wall of the oven, you may be able to get at the connections by removing those screws, then gently pulling on the element to bring the connecting wires inside the oven, then undoing one of the screws attaching the wires to the element (avoid excess force on the element; you don't want to crack the ceramic inside it). If you can't get at the connections this way, you'll have to remove the back of the oven. This may actually be easier than crawling around inside the oven anyway.

In a gas range with a gas pilot or an electronically fired gas pilot ignitor, a common problem is clogging in the flame orifice(s); this is visible as a white buildup in the orifice hole(s). Low gas pressure in the pilot can also cause ignition failure if it can't sustain the pilot flame long enough for the flame sensor to enable the main gas valve.

I'm sorry I can't give you more than a generic answer; the model number or part number you provided doesn't come up on any searches. Perhaps it is actually the stock number from one particular supplier, or there is a typo in it.

Common faults with Belling 317 Range


For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS 1, If the Belling fan motor in the back of the oven is going round and the temperature light is on (normally little red light), but there is no heat then you will probably need a new oven element, these are generally very easy to fit and readily available from our website these can be tested with a electric meter.
To gain access to the BELLING element you will have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you will see the fan and element, if you look closely at the element you will probably see a small hole burnt in it where it has blown. Sometimes however there is no evidence of a fault but the element is open circuit ie: broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Some elements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nuts from the rear of the machine.



2, If your BELLING fan oven is getting warm but takes a very long time to cook or is burning the food more on one side than the other, then you need to check if your oven fan motor is working you will see the blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fan motor is not blowing the heat into the oven then you need To replace the oven fan motor is a little more expensive and a bit more involved.
3. If you have the opposite problem ie: your oven is over heating and burning everything then you will need to replace your BELLING oven thermostat
4, A quite common and easily overlooked answer is if your BELLING oven is not working at all ie: no heat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timer into AUTO mode, simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.

Bosch HBN 70 Fan oven will not heat up to temperature, fan and light are working just no heat


99% of the time the problem will be a faulty element or burnt off wire at the element terminal. Best way is to pull the back cover off the oven and check the terminal connections. If these are okay put a set of test lamps across the terminals and you should have 240 volts. If you have 240 volts this tells you that the wiring is okay and the element is faulty. When you turn the oven setting to fan forced selection the power is delivered to the fan forced fan motor and the oven element at the same time. I am not familiar with this exact oven but most fan forced ovens have two fans. There is the fan at the back of the oven that comes on with the oven element and then the extractor fan in the cavity of the oven, which you cannot see but can hear. I trust you are talking about the fan forced oven fan which is generally at the back of the oven.

Amana range -the oven does not work, but rest of stove is working.


If the oven isn't working it is either the oven thermostat or the element. If the light and fan comes on to show it's heating but no heat appears, check the fan oven element on the back wall behind the panel. Usually 4 screws.

The main oven has stopped working. The fan works and the Small oven also works.


There could be a few different things wrong. The element may have died. Is the fan you mention the forced air fan? No heat usually means blown fuse or faulty heating element, and since the small oven works I would suspect the the element has blown. You would benefit from getting an appliance serviceman to make a house call to replace the element. Unless you're handy and have a soldering iron, some heat resistant sleeving, and can access the back of the oven comfortably.

Hope this helps. Let me know.

GE range - oven stopped working after cleaning


If you bent the bottom element out list out of the way, you may have broken the actual heating element inside of the metal sheath. Or, it could have shorted to ground.
After tinkering with it more, you might have caused another short, and now both legs of 220 VAC have either a blown fuse or tripped breaker.

Reply what you find is the sondition, and I will help you troubleshoot more.

Steps required to replace 2200watt element for fan forced Oven Westinghouse 688 freestyle.


Symptoms= Oven light ok, thermostat light ok, oven not heating at all or to a low heat. May also have tripped the circuit breaker on the switchboard
Probably the element
Switch off power to the oven at switchboard
Open the oven door just a little and pull the door up to remove it.
Lift the panel at the oven back wall over the fan.
See the coiled element, you may already see a defect in the surface of the element.
Remove the screw at the base of the coil
With a small sharp screwdriver flip out the clip on each side of the element at the top
Feed the element out of the holes
Note that the green wire is attached to the frame of the element and the red wire to the core of the element.
The other side of the element may have two white wires
Disconnect all these wires, maybe using a pliers.
You can check this element with a simply multimeter, buy a new element and refit opposite to removal
