You can test an element by using an ohm meter . Isolate (disconnect the two wires) and test it. It should have a fairly high resistance . low resistance means partly shorted.  zero resistance(no meter movement) means burned open.

It would appear that the main oven element is not working. I had a power cut whilst using the oven recently and have only just realised that the oven will not heat up. Everything else is working ok. If it...


If it is a fan forced oven, the element is round in shape and goes around the fan blade on the back wall of oven.
To replace: Turn off power!!
-Remove side racks from oven, then remove rear panel.
-You should now see fan blade and fan element.
-You need to remove oven from cavity, then remove rear outer panel.
-You can now access element- it will be held in place by 2 small nuts either side of element wiring connections. Disconnect element wires, unscrew nuts. Element is now removed!
Reverse procedure to reassemble and test. If oven is heating OK, also check main oven thermostat is regulating temperature (ie clicks on and off), as sometimes thermostat can fail if element has blown

The light and fan works but no heat comes on in oven.


This tutorial will show you how to check your Smeg element and how to replace your Smeg cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
  • 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 Smeg manual.
  • If your 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.
  • 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.

Neff cooker not heating up


Hi, it feels like your oven element has gone.
switch it off from the mains, open the door and remove the screws fixing the back panel. You will find a round two turn element. Unscrew the element fixings and check the element for burnt marks, corrosion. If you have a multi meter, turn it to buzzer and use the meter leads to test the element connections. If it doesn't buzz, it's dead. Just needs replacing.
Cheers

Fan and grill works but not heating up


Hi.
If the fan is working o/k, then you need a new fan oven element fitting.
Remove panel at rear of oven compartment, there you will see the element, undo any screws you can see to remove rear cover.
disconnect element taking care not to loose wires, and fit new element. test before you refit rear cover.
Plz rate this solution.Thanks

Replaced oven heating element, now trips electric


Disconnect the new heater and try it again , if it still trips then your problem is elsewhere, if it does not trip, then it points to the new element being faulty.
If it is fan assisted make sure the fan is running o/k.
Hope this helps.
Please leave feedback.
Thanks.
