SOURCE: Electric Oven not getting hot enough

Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.

1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two

SOURCE: GE Profile Electric Stove - Buttons for oven don't work

We had a bunch of storms roll through the area and we figured a surge must have fried our control panel. We decided to buy a new oven rather than spend $200 fixing this one. Luckily, our local Sears rep wasn't in it just for the commission and suggested we flip the circuit breaker off for 10 minutes to allow the range to reset itself. Works good as new! So, try this first before you make a decision. Good luck!

SOURCE: My oven does not shut off.

Hi there, this is a serious control fault that may be fixed by unplugging this unit for a five minute period. after this hard reset, plug the unit back into the wall outlet and power up. if the unit continues to stay on, you will need to replace the control(electric oven control)board.

I just moved into a new apartment and my stove wasn't working properly. After reading the very helpful information posted by kd3ke, I decided to turn off the breaker to my stove, take off the back covering, and check out what was back there. I was experiencing the same problem as posted.... the burner light, oven light and clock were all working however, the burners did not get hot nor did the oven. After taking off the back panel, the cord did have just as he stated, a black, white, and red wire however the plug attatching to the stove did not have cordinating colors. It was just a grey cord with 3 copper wire heads. It seemed to me that the cord was twisted and therefore everything was backwards. Since I was relying on his post, that would explain why the stove still did have some power, just not all, because the voltagages were wrong. I flipped the three cord wires, reconnected them to the stove and then plugged it in and turned on the breaker... everything works now!!! :) I don't know if this will help anyone else since it may not be the same problem if your stove was working properly previously, but it fixed the problem for me since I had just moved in.

SOURCE: broiler works, oven settings - no flame, no heat.

Hi, it sounds like the oven ignitor might be bad. Remove the floor panel inside the oven and you will see the ignitor attached to the burner assembly. Turn the oven on and see if it glows. You can test the connection for the ignitor and see if it gets 120V to it. The most common problem with the gas oven is the ignitor. Most of the time, the ignitor glows but is not strong enough to open the gas valve.
Please let me know if this was helpfull or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Need a manual for Simpson Ezi Set Upright GAS Oven/Stove. Think the Model No. is 62F851W. The stove top has 4 burners. There is a griller in the oven. The griller and oven have piezo(?) ignition. ...


Thank you I have contacted simpson directly to obtain your manual from the manufacturer I will look for there response tommorow and message you my contact mail information when it is sent from them. And if you have to use a match on top to light the burners you would first assure that you have spark if you have no spark then you would look at the spark modulator which is what most stoves use to send the current to the electrodes to create the spark. If you did have spark you would then need to check each electrode or ignitor to assure that they were not cracked and they were functioning properly. If you have any questions message me back or I will be posting as soon as simpson responds to my contact of them.
Thank you
Rick

Outside glass on oven door exploded, can't find replacement code, as ID plate in oven unreadable. Model 65-867


I'm presuming that this is a Simpson Nova 65-867
By the look of all the data I can find, this is an Australian appliance. I'm in the UK, and I was presuming that you were in the US, but maybe you're in OZ.

If you are then you can go to

http://www.alliedappliance.com.au/about_allied_appliance.htm

And mail them with a request for help. They advertise loads of spare parts for your oven (but not glass in the listings I have seen). I imagine that they will be able to source what you need.

You can also make enquiries at The Big Warehouse.com, who also stock parts for your oven:

https://spares.bigwarehouse.com.au/contact_us.php?osCsid=3b1cdec4545fb97a677f2646a2b69530

Finally, go directly to Simpson. Contact information as follows:

Simpson appliances are stocked by a wide selection of quality electrical retailers throughout Australia.
To find your nearest outlet, please call our dedicated customer care number:
1300 363 640
For service related questions please call:
13 13 49
For information about spare parts call:

Worth noting that Simpson are part of the Electrolux group, so you may get help through a local Electrolux agent as well.

Stove plates have three settings. High, med, low.


60 years old . quite possibly not worth fixing .

Fan in oven sticking and only intermittently working


The fan plate is held on by four self tapping screws, which are fairly easy to remove. It will all be rather greasy and the grease runs down the inside of the fan plate and congeals and could possible restrict the fan. Take the fan plate off and just soak it in hot washing up water. if this does not work get the paste on oven cleaner from Lakeland and give that a go. It works! (You can use this all over the inside of the oven to clean it)

My stoves 720ef oven goes off if it turned up over 140 deg c also the grill in the top oven does not get red hot


Is the cooling fan running in the oven? Does it also continue to run when the oven controls are turned off to let the oven cool down?
There are ventilation grills below each door on the oven. You can see these when the doors are fully open, just look under each door to see if they are clear and not blocked up.

Simpson Atlas Apollo ceramic top stove, Digital clock etc. Just installed. No user guide to set clock etc. Oven wont work, suspect clock needs setting. Can I get a user guide?


Hello, I think I have the same oven as you, and yes the oven doesn't seem to work unless the clock has been set.

On my oven, there are 4 buttons and a dial below the digital clock.
To set the clock, you need to turn the dial whilst holding any two of the 4 buttons down.

For me it's a two handed job.

Cheers,

Michael

Simpson 2001 series upright electric stove oven does not get hot only gets warm


It could be the oven element (behind the cover plate in the back of the oven), or the fan not blowing the heat into the oven.

Stoves 720ef top oven warms but does not reach high temps. element replaced - no fix. thermostat ok as heating light cycles on and off at around 120 deg C, but reluctant to get hotter.


Have the same problem. Went and bought an oven thermometer from Lakeland and found that when the top oven thermostat was set to 160, the temperature only got to 140. I did clean the sensor inside the oven using a cleaner from Lakeland which did improve matters but it is still running cooler that it should. ( It takes at least 20 to 30 mins to warm up)
