I like you purchased one of these thinking you can trust the name simpson(pope) but after putting on a fry pan with sum saucages in and having a major fire in my kitchen, I through the heap of junk out and bought a *** oven (current technologie) howerver to answer your question you have pulled the elements and trays out to kleen them (that seems normal) but you need to make sure the element terminals are clean and so are the spring clip things they fit into, use a peice of emery cloth (not wet & dry) this should fix it

alternativly not buy this junk again and get a proper stove

Simpson stove has 2 2PH, 1 N and 1 E poles, but power lines only 3 wires-1 red, 1 black and 1 green. How to connect the wires to stove.


I believe the proper sequence is red to ph1 black to ph 2 and green to N and ground. Newer ovens do require a 4 wire plug and this is th esetup for them

I have a Simpson electric oven with stove top elements, and one of the burners will only cook at the highest level, I cant figure out how to change it, any suggestions?


You need to change the "Simmerstat", take the model number to your local electrical parts supplier/parts counter at your local stove retail shop that sells Simpson stoves and ask for one for that model, make sure you get the right one for the position as some control a single element and some control dual elements.

*** TURN OFF THE WALL SWITCH AND ENSURE NO POWER IS APPLIED TO THE STOVE BEFORE PROCEEDING ****
Remove the upper back panel of the stove. Swap wire for wire of the old simmerstat to the new one, remove the knob from the old Simmerstat, undo the nut securing the simmerstat in the oven control panel and discard, fit new one, secure, fit knob, fit back panel, turn on wall switch and test.

Some countrys/states require registered electricians perform this task on electrical appliances so you must ensure you can do this legally before you start and take the relevant safety precautions and don't electrocute yourself.

I want a 100 watt electric stove with oven to put in my bunkhouse so I don't have to add 220. I don't even know if there is such a thing.


I believe what you mean to say is: you want an electric stove that works with 115-120 volt and not 220-230 volt. Yes there are stoves available that work from 115-120 volt but they are vbery limited in availability. also, do you mean a true oven or just a stove top burner ? stove top burners are fairly easy to find in the regular 115v plug-in style at hardware stores or through catalog order (usually not at appliance stores). If you are looking for an oven with 115v plug-in ability, it will be a bit herder to find.

Electric Oven is not heating up (BAKE)


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} It could be that your lower element is burnt out or ready to burn out. They last 3-5 years depending how much you use your stove.
Disconnect POWER to the stove, remove the screws holding the lower element to the back of the inside of the stove, pull out carefully and remove the 2 screws holding the wires on. Check the element with an ohm meter, it should read 0 (zero or very close) resistance on an ohm meter. You may also take it to a store that sells replacements ($25) and they may check it for you.

Simpson 2001 series upright electric stove oven does not get hot only gets warm


It could be the oven element (behind the cover plate in the back of the oven), or the fan not blowing the heat into the oven.
