We have a Baumatic fan assisted oven and all of a sudden when on the oven function it doesn't heat up anymore. The grill and light and fan are still working.
Do you know what this might be caused by? Can it be repaired by ourselves? Thanks

Re: Baumatic fan assisted oven not heating up
The oven element has failed, you need to fit a new element.
It is a straight forward repair to do.
Remove inner rear panel of oven, you will see the round element at rear.
Unfasten element, detach wires, and fit new element.
Refit rear panel, and test.
Plz rate my solution.
FIrstly disconnect ideally by turning off at the switchboard and then also in the kitchen. You will need to remove the inner oven panel and then remove a retaining nut from the element. Then you need to access the back of the oven - remove the back panel completely. Then disconnect the element - earth connection is in the centre - remove the two retaining screws on the element. Then instal the new element with retaining screws, and the one also in the inner section of the oven.

If both broiling and baking element are not heating, then
the most common fault causing the problem is a defective temperature
The probe is located inside the oven cavity.
On most ovens there is only one temperature sensor, connected in line
on the circuit from electroning oven control to baking and broiling
When the probe fails, it will affect both baking and broiling function.
temperature probe is tested reching the probe, cutting or disconnecting
its wiring, and testing the probe at room temperature, with a
multimeter set on impedance at Rx1. If the multimeter reads no
continuity (circuit open), then the probe must be replaced.
the temperature probe is good, then parts that may be responsible for
the fault are oven electronic control and wiring. Having both elements
failing at the same time would be rather unusual.
If only one element is failing, then the fault is probably the element. In that case you can test the element removing it from the cavity, and testing Ohms on the element. If circuit is open , then the element must be replaced.
If it is a fan assisted electric oven, and the fan is wrking o/k, then it will probably be a faulty oven element. This is located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover. Please rate my solution. Thanks.
