Question about Whirlpool RBS245PDS Electric Single Oven

No power to Phillips Whirlpool electric oven AKG344

Have just bought flat with Phillips Whirlpool gas(hob)/electic oven. Model appears to be AKG344/WH/01. It looks at least 10 years old.

Gas hob works fine but cannot get anything to happen on the baking oven; none of the controls seem to do anything. From left to right there are firstly two push/pull knobs which adjust timer settings and a clock (non-digital) which has not moved since I arrived and I can't seem to adjust it. A friend suggested the right hand knob should be set to manual (hand symbol), but this has not helped. Next along is an LED with a 'oC' next to it; I believe this should turn on, but doesn't. Then there are three dial knobs; Grill, Temperature and Functions. No combination of settings of these controls that I've tried will fire the oven up. There is a Cooker ON switch on the wall which only seems to help the hob pilot light work. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated before I call out an electrician over what could be a user error.The previous owners claim the oven was working okay when they last used it. The manual they left me seems to be for a different model altogether, judging from the illustrations.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will need to call an electrician because this is not the sort of thing I am happy playing about with. At least I can direct them to the probable area of the fault. Thanks again.

I would say that the problem is related to the fact that there is no power at the terminal block of the oven.
The fact that the hob is working o/k, is that the wall switch is for the gas hob only.
You need to remove the oven from its housing, and see if the oven is plugged into a seperate socket or switch box.
If it has a fused plug ,then check the fuse in the plug, and replace with a known good one.
Next thing to do is trace the main lead into the oven, and remove the top cover of the oven where the lead enters,and check for power there,some times the connections burn away there, and lead to loss of power to the controls of the oven.If as you say, it has a analogue timer fitted and it is showing the hand symbol, then that is set correctly.

The fact that nothing happens , no matter what setting you select
more or less confirms no power to the controls.
The other possibility, is the electric timer is faulty, this will also prevent you from selecting any thing.
The timer can be bypassed, but you need to know what you are doing to do this.
If you can dermine that you have power to the oven , then I would say that you need an oven expert, rather than an electrician.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

    There is no pcb fitted to this oven, so any electronic problem, can be ruled out.

    Re oven prob.

    I would advise getting an oven expert to look at oven, as he will be conversent with electric supply to oven, whereas an electrician will maybe not coversent with the internal workinds of an oven, if it is the oven that is the prob.

Hi! An oven thermostat knob located at back or sometimes in front may not be greased properly. Also, the core valve does not rotate and to solve this first the appliance must be turned off. Then the "U" shaped clamp that holds the core valve in must be removed. Then the core valve removed by pulling on the valve stem.

Once that is done, valve core greased lightly applies to the cores surface. Being sure not to cover up any holes on the cores body. Then the core gets reinstalled EXACTLY as it was removed. Then the holding "U" shaped clamp gets replaced and the two securing screws reinstalled.

Done correctly, no leaks will result and the core will rotate easily, core not damaged nor the valve body it rotates in is damaged then Entire thermostat must be replaced.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!,

It sounds like the Control Board is Dead or a Fuse/Wiring system Is Faulty or blown on the Oven also going tothe Control Board.

The Control Board will need to be replaced and if this does not fix the problem the it is he Fuse or Wiring Leading to it.

Hope this helps --P3NGYJ03

Hi dvdnwtn

It sounds like the control board is done and needs to be replaced. Does anything even work on the oven? If not and there is power getting to it, then the control board is the problem if not the fuse which would be on the inside of the back panel.

The grill and ovens on my Jackson Topline cooker have just stopped working, the rings work but none of the lights above the switches are on when they are working, any Ideas please? thanks.


I am not familiar with your model of cooker but I assume it is a gas cooker.

Gas cookers have safety devices in the oven and grill the hob rings do not need. I speculate even the domestic oven hasn't escaped the interference from the electronics industry and I expect the aforementioned safety devices depend on (low voltage) electronics and electronics depend on electricity - that the lights aren't working would suggest there is no (low voltage) electricity.

Even in the case of an electric oven the thermostat could be electronic and need (low voltage) electricity to work.

I suspect the internal power supply has failed.

Hi ive purchased a zanussi gas hob & electric grill and oven my installer wanted to knw what amp and wire to use to connect the oven nothing is stated in the manual model no ZOF35511XK


The necessary data for your installer is on
the rating plate. The rating plate is on the back side on oven and on the bottom side on hob. Never remove
the rating plate from the appliance cavity.
Make sure that the electrical information on
the rating plate agrees with the power
supply. If not, contact an electrician

All electrical connections should be made by
a qualified electrician.
The appliance must be earthed.

No power at all :(


Sounds like either you tripped the 220 breaker in your household electric panel, or a fuse located on the oven's control board. (service man)

Is this oven suitable to have a Induction Hob


Provided there is a space between the top of the oven and the hob, it should present no problem.
You will of course need a seperate plug outlet for hob

Electrical output requirement for a buit-in oven and cooktop


Providing the existing switch outlet iscontrolled by a 30amp circuit fuse or trip, then there is no problem connecting the 2 appliances to the same switch.
If on the other hand, it is controlled by a 13 amp breaker, then you cannot connect both appliances to this, you would have to use 2 seperate sockets.
Hope this clarifys your question.

Gas Double oven (Built in)


It is definately not possible to change a gas to an electric. There are very few options for double gas ovens as electric is far superior. IF you have to go with gas , check out the local Habitat for Humanity store. You should be able to buy a used gas oven. It probably won't have the self clean feature. You would be better off trying e bay or a local scratch and dent outlet for a nice electric convection oven. It will need a seperate 220 volt circuit probably 40 amps. This isn't as expensive as you would think. Use the installer from the dealer you purchase the oven from. They are usually a lot cheaper than a union electricial worker. The 4 sizes available for built in ovens are the old standard of 24" the newer standard of 27" and the most common and useful 30" This is the current standard but you will also still be able to get 27" There is also a custom standard of 36" which would be for the very high end lines. These are all width measurements. The height will vary with the model. Most cabinets are made to accept various heights by removing one or more drawers underneath.
