Faulty electric oven (Ignis AKL828/AV)

Hi there.
I have an Ignis AKL828/AV (same as Whirpool) oven which just so happened to decide it wasn't going to work on Christmas Day.I have suspected for some time that the thermostat was faulty as there didn't seem to be a low heat setting.On the day in question I turned on the oven (used previously in the day) and left it to heat up.After a while an MCB tripped and when turned back on, the oven wouldn't heat up.It is a single fan oven with built in grill, which still works.
Many thanks for any help given.

    Hi barkencoa.

    Thanks for the info but what I'm now wondering is if there is any other reason the oven would stop heating i.e. faulty temp control and /or thermostat .I don't want to replace the element just in case it's something else.I've had the element out and it "appears" ok.

    Many thanks.

    Hi again!

    I decided to bite the bullet and bought a new element today which has been fitted and is working.It wasn't expensive.It was only £24, which considering the price of a new oven is quite acceptable!

    Thanks for your help and all the very best to you and your family for 2009.

I think you will find that it is the oven element that has shorted, causing the trip to go. The fan will still work, but with no heat.
Remove inner rear panel of oven, there you will see the element.
Remove and replace.

    Hi .

    I appreciate your concern, but the fact that the element looks o/k , proves nothing.

    You need to test it, to be certain,there are two ways of doing this, if you have a meter, set it on the ohms range to test for continuity, and put the probes onto the heater terminals, the needle should swing all the way over, if it does not , then the element is no good.

    The other way is to test the element in situ, with the element disconnected from the oven but with the wires still connected, test for voltage , if you have a supply but it is not getting hot, then again the element is faulty..Only do it this way if you know what you are doing,

    Remember electricity is s silent killer!!!!

    Good luck.

    I still do not think it is the stat that is faulty.

Instructions for a ignis electric oven as there is no temperature guide or modes on front of oven

I don't see what looks like your model anywhere, or a manual for any model, or a company website, so if no one can help you try this.

The left dial could be- bake, broil, fan, convection cook, now the bottom pan should come out so you can see the bake element.

Turn it one setting and see what happens, either broil (top),,, bake (bottom), convection fan (bottom), turn and wait to see what happens.

Right should be temp, not sure if the dial has a stop or you can spin, but it at 12:00, put at 6:00 I say this maybe 300deg F.

Get over temp gauge (cheap).

If you don't get any help, then you need to try and see what does what and mark it down.

If you can't see top burn, maybe top pan come out so you can see it.

They get red hot, so you can tell which one turn on.

Sorry, can't find any info.

Built in oven front panel gets too hot

No. There should be a fan that runs and blows cool air from a gap at the top of the door and over the controls.

Sounds like the oven element is faulty.
This is usually located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a remov eable cover.

Oven not working, is it the thermostat or element

This will almost certainly be the element and is fairly simple to replace.

I have whirpool oven GBS 307PRS00 after selfcleaning won't heat back up is this the fuse and can i replace it myself?

It was the TOD a little sensor in the back of the oven, it happened because when you self clean the temperature goes up to 1000 degrees. never self clean over 2 hours and only do it as
little as possible.
