Question about Neff U1421 Double circotherm Electric Oven

1 Answer

Electric oven too hot

First of all, thank you so much for taking the time to look at this. I really appreciate the help. I have an electric oven that I repaired myself. I replaced the oven element. It now heats, but when the thermostat goes to turn the element off, the element stays on and the oven just gets hotter. The heating light goes out but the oven element stays on. Any ideas for how to fix this problem? Many thanks. L. Stern

    To answer your questions:
    Earth trip? I'm sorry I don't know what this is. I have a thermador double oven.
    How many wires? There is just one wire connected to one end of the element and one other wire connected to the other end.
    Did I touch any other wiring? I am almost certain that I have not touched any other wires. The only ones I could even reach were the ones attached to the element itself. I did not remove the oven from the wall.
    More info: I fixed the oven about a year ago and replaced the oven element. The element went out again recently, but at the appliance parts shop the element tested fine. The wire leading into the element were what failed most recently. I cut back the damaged wire and joined new wiring with porcelain wire nuts. When I reinstalled the element the first time, I didn't make sure that the connector were clamped on tight enough and one dislodged. The whole oven shorted out. I pulled it out again, clamped things more firmly, reinstalled, turned the power back on, and now the element just goes gangbusters hot. I'm back to using only the lower oven until I figure this one out. Many thanks for the help.

    I have a new electric oven. It came with the new house that I bought.
    Something is not right with this oven, the front panel indicator light stays on for a long time (a few hours) after the oven has been turned off. Sometimes the light flickers.

    I had logged the problem with the builder.
    The builder had contacted the retailer who had contacted a 3rd party service company to

    check the problem. The problem was diagnosed as a feedback on neutral in the oven

    circuitry. The technician could not figure out the cause of the problem. He changed an

    element hoping this would fix the problem. It didn't. On my request, another technician

    was sent to look at the problem. He didn't know what was wrong and checked with his

    supervisor. His supervisor had apparently known of a similar problem at a new home a few

    years ago. He asked his technician if the problem was at a new house. They did not give

    me an answer when I asked them how the problem was related to a new house. When I pushed

    them to fix the problem, they installed a resistor in the oven.
    I am sure is not a proper fix but just a work around.

    I rang an oven repair person and he reckons the problem could be related to a faulty

    thermostat. I spoke to another person (electric engineer) who reckons that the problem

    could be related to a incorrect wiring in the house.

    Has anyone had a similar problem or have the experience to advise what I should do next.

    1. Is this a problem with the oven circuitry?
    or
    2. Is is a problem with the wiring of the house?

    3. Is there a quick way I can check or test if there is a faulty wiring in the circuit (ie plug in any lighting device to see if the indicator light stays on etc)?

    Element may not be working. Sparks were coming from element.

    my teka HA 850 oven does not heat up ,the panel lights do not illuminate so I think it could be the element at the back of the oven may be at fault. however as the two red lights do not light but do give a slight flicker when you turn the oven on, I think its possible that the thermostat may be faulty. I have a test meter, how do I test the components with my electric test meter please, in order to determine which component is my problem.

Difficult to see what you have done here! can you come back with some info: do you have an earth trip fitted in your consumer unit? how many wires are fitted to the element? did you touch any other wiring except those connected to the element?

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.I would recommend paying for a service call to have a tech take the door apart for you. There are four pieces of glass in the door and lots of screws. It really is a pain to take doors apart we as techs get this call all the time. Believe me you will thank me you paid someone to do it. If it were easy i would tell you. Most people take them apart then end up paying because they cant put it back together.

Oven takes a long time to heat up


your ignitor could be going out. the ignitor has to get hot enough in order for the gas to turn on and heat your oven. if your ignitor is going out, sometimes it doesn't glow hot enough for the gas to turn on, or it could be that is takes longer than normal to get hot enough to turn the gas on. I would replace the ignitor and that should solve the problem. Joe
