SOURCE: cleaning above the grill element

I would not advise you to remove the element unless you feel competent to do so.
Best thing to do is to put the grill full on and let all the fat and grease burn itself off.
you will not hurt anything by doing this.
Make sure you have the griil door open and your house door.
Plz rate my solution.
thanks.

SOURCE: fan working grill working just no heat in siemens oven

hello the first thing that we need to look at is the electrical box thats is outside and see if there are any more braekers tripped. the clue is that everything work except the heat. thats 208/230 volt and the rest of the oven is 115 volt. e sure to take the breakers and push them all the way to off then back to the on position. if thats is the problem now you are going to have to call a service man to check out what is shorting and causing the breaker to trip.

SOURCE: zanussi electric double oven. Top oven not working.

It sounds like a faulty thermostat, because when you turn the thermostat on it should supply the oven element and the neon light, so even if the element is faulty, the neon light should still come on regardless of the element working or not.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: main oven trips electric when switched on top oven

If the fuse or circuit breaker is tripping it is most likely a short circuit in the oven element.

I turn on the top oven and the grill element also comes on. I can grill ok but I cannot use the top oven for baking. Any advice please?


Hello;
My name is Peter. i am a retired field service appliance technician.

It sounds like you have a bad control. I can not be sure of this because you did not proved a model number so I can see what you have
Sometime these components are inexpensive and easily replaced.

You model number is on a metal plate on the upper face of your oven after you open the oven door.

Water / steam leaking from front


Is there a stove on top. If so, you may have water dripping from the top down into the area just above the oven. Does this moisture form when cooking or is it present all the time.

Bought a house with Technica oven (5-6 yrs old), turned on grill and it smoked badly. All smoke going into room - should it be sucked up into oven vents ?(slots at top of inside oven when door open)....


The grill probably has some type of oil or cleaning agent spilled on to it. the only way i have done it is just burned it off. But I suppose you could pull the burners and wash with soap and warm water. It's much nicer to have a exhaust vent leading out through the range hood to the outside So if you have the time and money it's a relatively easy job to do. Good luck

Stoves 720 EF Electric Double Oven Model No 059040415 -when you turn the grill knob there is no light and it doesn't do anything at all - the grill is not working. However, the element must be working as...


First things first. The oven element is totally separate to the grill element. The clock has to have a time set for either the top or bottom oven to work, whereas the grill will work without the clock being set.
The control knob for the top oven is the ONLY control that will turn the top oven lights on, the grill does not turn the lights on. ( If you want to watch your toast, you have to turn the top oven switch on to the first setting as well as operating the grill control).
To prevent the grill being operated with the door shut, there is a micro-switch on the door hinge that allows the grill to operate ONLY when the door is down. The grill control also does not illuminate unless the door is down. There are two options on the grill control - right or left. One way is the inner element only and the other is both inner and outer ones.
So if you have done all that and it still doesn't work, then the micro-switch could be faulty.
Best of luck

Do I need to preheat the oven when cooking in the iven When using as a grill the grill smokes all the time


hi, what you need to do is turn the grill on and leave it on what is happening is all the steam and fat and grease form the cooking you have done in the oven has risen and stuck on the heating element the grill uses, so open your windows and turn the grill onto its highest setting and just leave it after a while the smoke will stop.

You need to do this so that any food you cook using the grill doesnt smell of the smoke thats burning on the grill element.

Dont worry you wont do any harm to it this is a very common problem with combo ovens and grills and the same goes for microwaves with the grill feature so dont worry to much its what happens over time if you dont use the grill much.

So just switch the grill on and leave it it can take upto 20 to 30min to stop smoking but after its burned off all the grease and fat etc it will stop smoking and stop smelling so dont worry everybody who has one goes through this same problem.


let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

Its best you do this once a week or so to ensure that it dont build up to much as it can really stink the whole place out and if you cook food without burning it all off your food will taste like the smell witch believe me isnt nice, so just leave it all to burn off leave your windows and doors open and after about 20 min you should find the smoke will stop and the smell will go away.

You may find it only takes 5 to 10 min but dont worry no matter how long it takes your not doing any harm your just cleaning the element.

Dont try cleaning it with cleaning products as this can cause harm to the element and could taint any food with the cleaning product you use.

The only real help you can give is that before you turn it on to burn off the grease use a stiff hand brush and brush the element to remove all the dried on loose bits this will then make it quicker to stop smoking.

But other than that just leave it and it will sort itself out.
