Re: oven heats up then switches off

There is an overheat stat in the oven which turns it off if overheating. the causes are several. 1 - oven thermostat is faulty and oven is reachingf too high a temp. 2 - there is a second fan in the casing to keep the casing cool. 3 - this second fan is turned on by a fan start stat which may be faulty and is not starting the cooling fan 4 - the overheat stat itself is faulty. it is a bit difficult to narrow it down from afar. get back to me if you want

Where do I locate the fuses that controls the oven heating.

Hello Pat;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

When you go into self cleaning both of your burner element peak at there max temperature, well above 500 degrees F.

1.) Oven Element - Over time the elements will fail. Turn the upper element on. Inspect for sparking where there may be a crack in the element. Turn the upper element off, inspect for any cracks.

If there are no cracks then you lower element is fine.

2.) Each of your ovens have a independent thermocouple. Both may have failed due to the extreme heat. Oven thermocouples will fail on older units.

3.) Lets go to the source. You have what is called a infinite switch in your oven. This switch controls your oven temperature. If this switch fails then your oven will not work.

Ok, lets assume you or a friend are good with tools. With a multi-meter set to the lowest Ohms, In the back of your oven there is a sheet metal cover. Remover the cover, disconnect the two contacts on each thermocouple, and Ohm them out. (Power Off at your breaker box first) You should get a reading of '0' Ohms, anything else the thermal couples are bad.

But, I tend to believe, You have a bad infinity switch. You can also Ohm this out as above with a reading of '0' Ohms.

This component is about $35.00 USD.

If I were still working for Sears Home Services I would charge you $350.00- $450.00 for this service call. Send me your model number and let me see what you have.

Timer is ok but oven not working

I understand that you are having trouble with your oven, model# CPLEF398DCE, not working/heating, even though the display screen is showing everything to be working fine. I suggest you give your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by switching the circuit breaker off, that the oven is on, for 3-5 minutes. Once the 3-5 minutes has passed, switch the circuit breaker back on. The first thing you will need to do, is to set the time. You will do this by entering in the time and pressing start. Turn the oven on. If you are still having trouble with the oven not working/heating, I suggest you contact your local authorized technician to come and diagnose the oven, to see why it will not work correctly.

-Best Regards-

Oven will not heat when turned on

Hi. Check to make sure the electrical breaker is not tripped. Find the breaker box and inside you will find several black switched called "breakers" and you possibly may have one that is in the center position, indicating it has been "tripped". To resolve this, flip the switch to the "OFF" position then back to on. See if your oven heats now. If not heating, unplag the stove, wait 5 minutesm then plug it back in and see if it heats. If still no heat, most likely the power came back on with a slight "surge" and may have damaged the control board for the oven. If that is the case, you will need to have the oven serviced. Thanks and hope this helps!

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

Hotpoint BD52 oven very slow to heat up

You may have one leg of power that is out. First turn off the breakers, then back on. Check it to see if it is better. Then check the wiring from the receptacle, to the plug, to the back of the oven. Look inside the back of it and see if you see any fuses. They could be blown as well. If you are getting some heat (red) then it is an indication of a wiring or fuse problem. Now, one last thought here, if you turn it to high heat does it heat up faster? This one lead it to be in the control switch. Let me know how you do.

My oven turns off on me after only a minute never heating up fully

Could be caused by either of following;

1. Faulty thermostat.
2. Faulty thermal cut out switch. (controls power to cooling fan).
3. Faulty cooling fan (not fan inside oven).

Test thermostat by setting thermostat to low temperature like 60 oC. If oven gets much hotter then its a faulty thermostat.
To test cooling fan and thermal switch take oven out and remove top or rear panels to expose components.
When oven gets hot the cooling fan should turn on. If it doesn't then check to see if there is a mains voltage present.
If mains current exist but fan is not turning then replace fan. If mains voltage is not present then its the thermal switch.

Amana gas range bake burner does not heat

Pull the bottom of the oven off. You will see 2 to 4 screws that hold the panel on. The ignitor is under there. Look at the ignitor carefully for breaks. I say carefully as the ignitor is very easy to break.
