First locate the water solenoid valve. Disconnect the water line to the inlet side of the valve to make sure water is getting to the valve. Once that's verified, disconnect the outlet side of the valve. Activate the steam and verify that the valve opens and there's a good amount of water coming out of the valve. If no water comes out. Verify that the coil is getting energized with the correct voltage. If the correct voltage is present and you have no water coming out. Replace the solenoid. If everything is working then remove the left panel inside the oven to check for blockage in the steam manifold. The manifold consists of a pipe with several spray nozzles that spray water on rebar. Remove all the nozzles and activate the steam. Do this several times to purge any rust or debri. Clean the nozzles and replace them. You should be good to go.
For the oven their is 2 elements 1 for bake and 1 for broil,are each glowing red hot on the respictive settings of bake and broil? their is no trird hidden element. Plus i know manufactures come out with new features all the time,i attend factory trainging sessions a couple times a year but i am confused as to what the "STEAM CLEAN OPTION" IS?? THE SELF CLEAN cycle utilizes both elements to clean the oven adding steam is a new one on me
Steam is OK as it means whatever is in there is boiling furiously, it may need turning off at that point! Smoke though means it has gone too far. Check the cooking times used and the recommended cooking times on the packet along with the adjustment for the power of your oven.
Yes it is easy to replace, but first check the end of the steam wand make sure the holes are not blocked, If you open the steam valve and the wand is hot it is because of blockage, if you only get warm water and no steam then the thermostat is gone.
I think your model only has one boiler, it is possible that the thermostat for the steam could be damaged. or on the mainboard, connection that turns the steam on is damaged(I had that happen on a compact digital).
First off, do not submerge the carafe in cold water when it is hot. The water will rush past the seals. This solution involves heating the carafe. Be careful to avoid steam burns
1. Place the carafe on a stove top.
2. Slowly heat the carafe. (make sure you are wearing oven mitts -- avoid steam burns)
3. As the carafe heats the water inside steam will escape the area where the seal allowed the water to get in there in the first place. Steam should appear very quickly, If it does not stop the process right away! Pressure can build up and cause the Carafe to explode!
4. Check the carafe from time to time taking care to avoid steam burns.
5. Once the water has been steamed away, remove the carafe from the stove and allow it to cool slowly. DO NOT place the carafe in water or on a very cold surface until it has cooled. The rapid cooling of the left over steam will cause the carafe to collapse on itself if it is placed in cold water while it is still hot from this procedure.
Fill the iron with equal parts white vinegar and distilled water. Place an oven rack over your sink and position the iron on top, with the steam vents facing down. Plug in the iron and turn it to the steam setting. Run it until the steam stops.
