Element requires replacing on Eurolec E60SS oven

Hello.

We suffered a power cut the other evening and I have reason to suspect the element in our Eurolec Oven, as it is no longer working. The fan in the oven and the oven light and the grill are all still working.

I read elsewhere that the element can be changed without having to remove the oven. Are you able to be any more explicit about this process please ? For example does it require any soldering or is it just straightforward connectors ?

Also, if it is possible, can you advise further? We inherited this oven from previous owners and have never known how to adjust the clock, as there is no manual.

Any information is helpful, although obviously not as critical as the element replacement.

Thank you very much indeed for your time and help.

Phil. Jones

SOURCE: Neff B1432 oven element and fan not working

If the element has failed again in such a short time , then I would suspect that the fan is the culprit.
If the fan is not working, then the element overheats, and burns itself out.
The fact that the fan spins freely, proves nothing, as the fan can be still faulty.
The only way to prove if the fan is faulty, is to remove the oven from the housing, and remove the rear outer panel of oven,.test with a meter set to ac mains and test the fan motor terminals to see if there is power there when oven is set to heat, disconnect the element first. ,if there is ,and the fan is not running then the motor is faulty..
If there is no voltage there, then problem is elsewhere, and you will have to investigate furher.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

there is a safety stat/fuse on top of the oven exterior i think you will find that it also has blown. Make sure you have isolated the appliance at the fuse board first though, Good Luck

SOURCE: The oven stopped working so I replaced the oven

Re:The oven stopped working so I replaced the oven element (ES101150) successfully. Now a year later the grill has stopped working so I replaced the grill element (ES548158).

The first success had been a lucky dip. before replacing an element you have to read Ohms at element, if reads infinity (open) replace it, if not, read volts coming from timer board.

Re:Now the fan, the oven, the light and the grill all don\'t work but the timer still works. Is there an internal fuse somewhere ?

There is no fuse. Depending on the country of use, the power cord may be fused, but if the timer is working, that is not the problem.

The grill element should be a double element in this model. Grab the old grill element and read Ohms, to find out if the old one was open. If one of the elements was open, then the element was bad. If it was not , then there was a different problem causing no heat. The circuit comes from timer board, passes through temperature sensor and powers fan and element. The job is done reading Ohms to find out if there is an open in wiring to grill, and if there is none, reading Volts at OEC (oven timer) contacts to find out if timer is working (timer is expensive).

Parts for this oven are scarcely available from third party, better ordering from manufacturer through the number listed on the owners manual.

Oven 388-610 won't heat up past 100F.


Hello. I'm not familiar with your particular unit but if it operates like most other brands, the display doesn't show temps under 100 degrees. From what you're describing, the oven isn't heating at all. I would suspect either a defective bake element or, an open thermostat which cuts the electricity to the elements if the temperature gets too high. If the safety thermostat checks good, then the problem most likely is the main oven control board--which simply activates a relay to turn on the element.

I have a eurolec double built under oven. When I turn the bottom oven on the rcd at the house consumer unit pops. The top oven works fine...


The elements in ovens consist of an outer earthed metal tube and an inner resistive element that is insulated from the outer tube by what is effectively a compressed ceramic insulating powder. If the element is not used for a while, enough atmospheric moisture, (or from spills, etc), can penetrate the insulation to cause enough earth leakage to trip the RCD. If the RCD is tripping at the correct level, (They can get too sensitive - see this article here:
Diagnosing RCD earth leakage breaker nuisance trips), then the only long term solution is to replace the element, although they can sometimes be dried out by heating them.

Eloectric Oven wont heat up either element.


If your oven has internal fuses, a wiring or component problem could have caused a fuse to blow. A blown fuse is an indication that a component has shorted or failed, and the problem will need to be corrected. Most ovens that use fuses will have an indication of the circuits that are affected by a particular fuse. If an oven fuse has blown, then you should inspect the oven element and the associated wiring to determine the cause before replacing the fuse.

THINGS TO CHECK:

the broil element
is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn't working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.

If there is no continuity then the element will need to be replaced. If the wires are damaged then they will need to be repaired. If the element is ok then you will need to check the broil circuit to determine the cause. This involves live voltage checks and should only be performed by qualified persons. Components to check include fuses, if the range is equipped, and oven control thermostat or electronic control.


The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. ( by placing the each of the meter prongs on each end of the heater element connectors) If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced.

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

Broil element won't come on.


1. Cut power to the stove by unplugging or switching off at the mains.
2. Remove broil element and inspect for burnt or melted places, if you have multimeter, then check it for continuity, it shouldn't have more than about10 ohms resistance. Burnt-out element is easily replaced.
3. If element is good, then check for voltage at element terminals, it should be 220 volt AC ( with caution, after turning power back on and setting oven to broil).
4. If all above checks out, then the problem will require disassembling the appliance to investigate thermostat issues, relay, etc. It would be at this point that I would strongly consider putting in a service call!

My oven does not start


Hello there:
It doesn't work at all dot_lineone.gif 1. No power
Make sure there's power getting to your range, oven or cooktop. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the appliance, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced. ^ top clear.gif Top element doesn't work dot_lineone.gif 1. Top element
If the element only works partially or not getting red hot at the "Hi" setting, the problem might be with a burned out receptacle that the element plugs into. If this is the case, replace both the element and the receptacle.

You can usually tell when the element itself burns out. It might have small holes or bubbles on the coil. Replace the element, if found defective.

2. Infinite switch
Another reason, why the element would not start, might be a defective infinite switch (located behind the control panel, with the burner knob on its shaft). Replace the switch if found defective.

We have a fan oven, which started not heating, but fan and thermostat light still on! We thought it was the element! But now the oven is working very occasionally, still heating as normal! We can try to...


Hi,

Elements don't heat intermittently - if the element is good it will heat up every time. If the element is blown / burnt-out it wont ever heat.

As your oven is heating sometimes but not others, this means the power supply to the element has an interruption somewhere. This could be caused by any of the following:

1. Loose connection in the wiring at the switch or the element
2. Faulty switch
3. Faulty thermostat.
4. Faulty oven timer

The thermostat is effectively just a heat-sensitive switch. By default it should be "closed" allowing power to the element. When the oven reaches the desired temperature, this switch opens, cutting power to the element until the oven cools enough for the switch to close and allow power to the element again.

Any of these four could be the cause of your fault. Loose connections can often by located visually, however testing a thermostat for correct operation and calibration is more complicated and ideally requires test equipment. The timer is the least likely cause, so I would concentrate on the others first.

Repairing your oven or any other electrical appliance can be dangerous and many repairs require specialist knowledge and/or electrical test equipment. Please bear this in mind before and when attempting any repair or consider having your appliance professionally inspected.

If you are intending to investigate this problem yourself, please ensure the power is disconnected at the wall/breaker first. Initially, I suggest that you visually check the connections at the element and the switch. You may find a wire at one of these locations that is partially broken or detached. Personally, I suspect your thermostat may be faulty.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

Fan not heating


  1. 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 Zanussi manual.
  2. If you're 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.
  3. 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.

Oven top heating element not working


Hi Max447, For safety Reasons you should cut off the power at the Circuit breaker. Test the oven to see if you can turn it on before working on it. Nothing tough about removing the element. Open the door and remove the racks to give yourself room. Where the element connects to the wall, remove the fasteners, and pull the element out. To test the element. Use a Volt ohm Meter, and measure for resistance from terminal to Terminal. you should see at least 10 ohms. Check from Terminal to the metal of the elements to see if the element is grounded to the casing. You should not read resistance here, it should read infinite.
