Heating element for oven

A 3 inch section of the heating element was glowing red but at that point small flames were coming out of it and it was blue in color . The rest of the element was black. Do i just need a new element or is it a bigger problem?

You just need a new element fitting. If it is fan assisted, make sure the fan is working o/k, if it is slow starting or sluggish or noisy,it is advisable to replace it also.
Plz rate this solution.

Hot surface igniter will glow and put out a flame but is not a blue/orange flame


First you need to get a nice blue steady flame to prove to the ignition module there is flame. Check you orifice and bypass tube.

Water coming out oven no steam and it will not get to tempeture


If your oven isn't reaching temperature you will not get steam. Turn the oven on and verify that the oven is calling for heat by looking in the temperature window next to the arrow that says "heat" or "on," if the set temperature is 5 degrees higher than the actual temperature there should be a small red dot next to the arrow. Then observe the burner, does the exhaust fan come on, can you see the ignitor glowing, does the burner light, does it stay lit or go out after 4 seconds? You could have a dirty flame sensor, the small rod with a wire attached to it at the top of the burner, remove the flame sensor and clean it with a cloth, wire brush, or emory cloth.

My hobart hgc-5 convection oven heats intermittenly. Heat goes on then off. I replaced the thermostat, ignition wire and ignition board. Still only heating intermittenly. What do I do?


I would replace the flame sense or clean it and make sure it is in the flame it will glow red you can see this if you remove the front and cover it is tough but can be done.also check to make sure it is not in a drafty location the air movement could blow the flame around and not hit the flame sense.it is just a metal rod with ceramic insulator.the flame is actually conductive.it will carry a small current.That is how the ign. module knows the flame is lit and dont just let gas pour in without being lit.

Kill the power to the stove. L2 is always hot to the element. If it welded itself to the frame whats left of the element stays hot. Easy fix but power needs to be OFF

Hi, I only just installed Baumatic single built in fan oven (B0616SS). I did as instructed and left on for 39 - 40 minutes at max 250 temp. I noticed that the oven door was very hot to touch, too hot! This...


Hello- This is a brand new model, but it works the same as the rest. Heat is produced by the elements. The fan has an element that glows when heating the air. --Convection oven glass gets hotter than normal fanless models.-- This is all normal operation of the oven.  To ensure full life of oven, avoid using the 'self-clean' feature. Techs call this the 'self-destruct' cycle. Please reply to this post if info is helpful- have more if needed- Thanks- Ed

The baking element in the oven does not appear to be working


HI.I would test to confirm the actual issue. This easiest test you can do is to turn on the oven and observe the heating element. If it glows red, the element is working. When baking, the broiling element may come on to assist with preheating or to maintain the oven temperature. When set to bake, if the broiler comes on, but the baking element does not, the likely cause is a burned out baking element.When set to broil, the broil element should glow red, but the bake element typically is not used. If the broiler does not glow, it is likely a burned out heating element.


Use This procedure below to confirm the failure.

With a multimeter, use these steps below to physically test for element functions.

1. Unplug the oven or turn off the power at the breaker or fuse box.

2.Follow the heating element back to where it goes through the wall of the oven. Remove the bracket that secures the element in place.

3. Unscrew or unfasten any stand-off supports that secure the element to the oven.

4.Pull the element part way out to expose the oven's wiring connected the element.

5.Label the wires and secure them in place so they do not fall back into the cavity.

6.Disconnect the wires from the element.

7.Using a multimeter set to x1, touch one probe to each of the element contacts. Expect resistance in the range of 20 to 40 ohms. Infinite or kilo-ohm resistance usually indicates a bad element and it should be replaced.

8.If the element tests okay, reconnect the wires, slip them back into the cavity and re-secure the element.

Bottom oven element sparked then quit working


The element sometimes will continue to arc inside after it burns out. It's 220 volts jumping across the break.

Stove


Electric or gas? Is it clean and not lined with foil? If gas, does the flame all look blue along the burner length? If electric, how many elements are there? Do they all glow in the area where you expect them to when the unit is heating? Where are they? Answering these questions should lead to a solution.
