Question about Creda Ovens
Basically the main oven is overheating - the element heats to maximum and stays there. Is it the element or thermostat ? Element was replaced few months ago.

SOURCE: electric oven too hot
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?

It is possible that the element in your oven is faulty again without there being any external evidence that it is so..
To be certain whether it is faulty or not , you really need to test it with a meter,preferably an anologue one with a audible beep to test for continuity.
What you need to do is disconnect the element, and with the meter probes touch the terminals of the element, if it is o/k then the meter will beep, no beep ,element open circuit.
If your meter does not have a beeper, then set it the ohms range, and again test across the element terminals, if it is o/k then the pointer will deflect all the way across, no deflection, element
It is doubtful that it will be a faulty thermostat,if the temp indicator light shows, that shows the supply is getting to the element.
If no light , then yes, it could be stat, to test if it is working, switch oven on, and with the element reconnected, test for voltage with the meter set on 240 volt range,no reading, stat faulty or no power between stat and element.
This should help you sort out what has happened.
Plz rate my solution.

Hi, Unplug the oven and remove the element to test it. Check the element and see if there is continuity. If the element is open, replace it. It can be bad even tho it doesn't appear bad.
I hope this helps you.

Hi, I was cooking and my oven jut went off, looked in fuse mains box and had tripped. So put back on and now the fan works but no heat...Can you give me some idea what it mite be.

If you remove the inner rear panl of oven compartment, you will see the element.
If you can see removeable screws, then you can change the element from inside without the need to remove from housing.
If screws cannot be removed from inside, then you will have to remove the oven from housing.
Please leave feedback for my suggested solution.
