Question about Ovens

1 Answer

Seems to be taking a long time to cook

Hi we have just been given a whirlpool electric fan oven but have not got the instructions. we cooked something in the oven which to me knowledge usally takes about 20-25 but when cooking in this oven they took about 45minutes. i believe this cooker is probably about 8-9 years old. not sure how to pre-heat the oven do you just put it on the fan symbol for about 10 minutes at the temperature you want to cook at or is there a knack to it

thank you

To preheat oven just select the temp you intend to cook at and wait until the red light goes out,it is then preheated
Then you can put your food in and carrying on cooking.
Yes you do put it on fan symbol, but make sure it is on the right one , as some ovens have fan only as well as fan and heat.
Plz rate this solution.
thanks.

Whirlpool gas oven is taking three times as long to cook something,what is wrong?


have you checked with an oven type thermometer for 350 degrees against the setting of 350 degrees,if its off very far then its the oven temp sensor in the upper left middle or right rear wall of the oven thats bad it looks like a small pencil type rod 2" to*' long it merely unplugs off the oven s control panel in the rear,you can test its resistance also to get an idea if it is your culprit,otherwise the oven element could have a hot spot in it and not letting all the current thru to properly heat the element,it will be dis-colored in that area

Hi got a NEFF B1691 oven. Thing is the oven light, element and fan keep switching off during cooking is this correct functionality - if not what could be wrong? The temperature display remains functioning...


There does seem to be a fault, as the fan should run continuously even when the element goes off at the required temperature setting, and the light should atay on as well.
It suggests to me that there is a fault with the oven thermostat, or it is wired incorrectly.

Can i slow cook in my oven, does it have aslow cook facility i have lost my manual, if it does please explain what to do. thanks


No, there is no slow cook. The bottom oven works as a normal fan assisted oven and the top oven relies on elements concealed in the floor. The top oven takes a long time to warm up.

I saw sparks? or small flame on back wall behind fan inside oven


It sounds likely that the fan motor is faulty,more so if the oven is heating to some extent.
You should be able to see or hear if the fan is working or not
Hope this helps with your prob.

OVEN TURNS ON BUT WONT HEAT UP.


Hi,
If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

Fan on during cooking


djpat, in looking at your schematic, it shows that the cooling fan will be on during bake and broil operations as well as cleaning. So this would be a normal operation. Catriver.
