SOURCE: hotpoint sy36x grill element works fine but when

it seems to me that it is a fan oven and the top element won't heat up you need a new fan oven element. it is a round element that sits behind the back grill surrounding the fan...

is the element still in one piece and mostly smooth to the touch? if you find any part of the element very rough where it looks like it actually melted then you've found your problem. post an update if this doesn't solve the problem.

    SOURCE: no heat when i switch oven on

    There is no doubt that it is the element that has failed, so all you need to do is replace the fan oven element.
    If you can see a removable panel at the rear of the oven ,remove that, and you should see the element.
    Remove and replace.
    If ther is no removable panel then you will have to access it from the rear of the oven cabinet.
    Plz rate my solution.
    thanks,

    SOURCE: my hotpoint oven is not heating up but hobb and

    If you have a HOTPOINTelectric Cooker or Fan Ovenwhich is not heating it could be one of the following problems.
    1, If the fanmotor inthe back of the oven is going round and the temperature light is on (normallylittle red light), but there is no heat then you will probably need a new ovenelement, these are generally very easy to fit and readily available from ourwebsite these can be tested with a electric meter.
    To gain access to the HOTPOINTelement youwill have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you willsee the fan and element,if you look closely at the element you will probably see a small hole burnt in it where ithas blown. Sometimes however there is no evidence of a fault but the element is open circuitie: broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Someelements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nutsfrom the rear of the machine.

    2, If your HOTPOINTfan oven is getting warm buttakes a very long time to cook or is burning the food more on one side than theother, then you need to check if your oven fanmotor is working you will seethe blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fanmotor isnot blowing the heat into the oven then you need To replace the oven fanmotor is a little more expensive and a bit moreinvolved.
    3. If you have theopposite problem ie: your oven is over heating and burning everything then youwill need to replace your HOTPOINToven thermostat

    4, A quite commonand easily overlooked answer is if your HOTPOINToven is not working at all ie:no heat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timer intoAUTO mode, simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.

    How do I replace a chef wall oven model exc91w bottom element

    My Chef Classic Wall mounted fan forced oven stopped working. Its grill section working. Fan and the light in the oven working well. Bot oven doesnot heat up. Please give a tip what is probably wrong?


    The bake element has gone bad. They can visually look fine but still be bad. To check and replace that element you will unfortunately need to kill the power and remove it from the wall. Remove the back cover. Check for a low resistance (around 16 ohms) across the bake element. If the resistance is high the element is bad. Google the make and model for a replacement element.

    Shacklock chef manual


    Usually (with oven unplugged) the burner will tilt up and is held in by a screw or 2 and has 2 wires attached (normally push on terminals). Have you read these with an ohmmeter to see if they are bad? The oven elements need the back cover removed and you will see the element connection and maybe a screw (if the screw isn't on the inside). It too should be checked for continuity before buying new ones.

    CHEF EBC5231W*53 OVEN.overcooks food underneath but undercooks on top side.any tips would be grateful


    Did you per chance put the food on a plate that pretty much is as big as the oven? If you did, you trapped all the heat from the baking element under the food. Please check that first.

    Can i slow cook in my oven, does it have aslow cook facility i have lost my manual, if it does please explain what to do. thanks


    No, there is no slow cook. The bottom oven works as a normal fan assisted oven and the top oven relies on elements concealed in the floor. The top oven takes a long time to warm up.

    I have a magic chef range/oven. For the last few months, it has taken longer and longer for the oven to heat up to temp. Now it won't get more than 90 degrees or so. What is the problem??


    Turn off the power to the range. Remove the bake element from inside the oven. Be careful not to let the wires go back into the oven cavity. Take a volt/ohm meter set for ohms or continuity and test the bake element leads. If you get no reading replace the element. If you do get a reading,replace the temperature sensor in the oven.

    MAJIC CHEF DOUBLE OVEN NOT WORKING


    I just had a model 976-4CX put in...I have no manual...I'm trying to find one. I thought I had a problem with the element, dial or thermostat. The bottom worked, but the top stopped working. There are 2 timers with dials next to the clock labeled Start and Stop, and Push for Manual. Come to find out my problem was solved by adjusting the Start and Stop dials and/or pushing in for manual!?!
    If I had a manual I'd know how these timers worked.

    Concealed oven


    consealed bake means that the bake element on the bottom had a metal plate above it to make it easier to clean and to allow you to use the lower racks without burning the bottom of your food. To use, you want to make sure that the oven temperature that you set has been reached before putting in your food to be cooked. You also should put the racks one notch lower than you normally would. If you do this, you should have no problems with your food cooking unevenly.
