Elba px 906 oven not warming

I have an elba px 906 oven which doesn't warm up at all, under any of the oven functions. Neither the top nor the bottom elements warm up when the oven or fan oven is turned on. My initial thought was that the element had gone, but the central part of the top element comes when you use it as a grill. So I suspect that the element is OK. My next thought was that the thermostat had gone - but I wonder if this can be the case when the grill element comes on (if the thermostat had gone, wouldn't it stop all electricity going to all elements). My next thought was that the oven function switch had gone - I don't know how to check whether it is working or not. Any advice much appreciated, especially in terms of whether there might be other causes of the breakdown, and how do I check on the oven function switch. Many thanks

    Many thanks for the guidance so far. I have taken the oven apart and the wiring seems fine, as do all the connections. The selector switch seems OK as well - there is no evidence of anything having burnt. The fan continues to turn on under all fan options; the temperature light remains alight under all options (fan and non-fan); the grill comes on under the fan and non-fan options. Am still perplexed and think it is probably time to call in an expert..

    SOURCE: Neff U1721 bottom oven not heating fan & light are ok

    Yes it will need a new element, if the fan runs and temperature light comes on then the element is gone.

    The power to the fan and thermostat is the fault. You will need to trace wiring from these elements to power source and I suspect that where the power cord meets the oven is where you'll find the cause.

    SOURCE: bake and broil top oven not functioning with system


    While the control board could be faulty, it is certainly not what I`d suspect initially. Do these symptom`s follow a self clean cycle of the upper oven ? Is your oven actually a SC302 double wall oven as the post header implies ?

    I ask because the symptoms you describe are a common occurrence when the hi-limit has tripped. The display will indicate the oven is indeed "on" but it will not heat do to the circuit being interrupted by the hi-limit ( which is what it was designed to do ).

    Fortunately if it is tripped, they are the manual reset type and are accessible behind the black grill/vent just above the door and just below the control panel next to the lock latch assembly.

    With the power off, you should be able to remove the grill and push the red button in the center of the thermostat and that should fix your problem...if indeed the hi-limit is tripped you`ll know immediately because you`ll feel it click as you push it down.

    Let me know if I can assist you further. If this solves your problem please rate the solution accordingly, if not let me know and I`ll try to guide you through other possible scenario`s.

    Thanks for visiting "fixya" and good luck.

    I just moved into a house with a Gaggenau EB 846-6. Light and fan work. Heating element doesn't seem to work in top or bottom 'socket'. Also, neither heating indicator light illuminates

    since neither light is going on, then i believe that you either have a bad thermostat, or possibly that you only have half of the voltage going to it, and gaggenau doesn't have gas units so it doesn't have a glow bar like the previous guy said.

    I have a Whirlpool Electric Range GY399LXUS. The oven will not turn on. The top burners work, the only button that works on the keypad is the warm button.

    I am an Appliance Technician...... and you need a new clock/ECM The part where the clock is & the oven controls... under there is a big circut board that is basicaly the motherboard for your oven. And I'm sorry to inform you that I just used your model number to look up the board and it is NO LONGER AVAILABLE.... that means they just don't make that part for your oven anymore. Whirlpool didn't use that design very long because they didn't sell well, they were expensive to produce, and they had a few too many problems out of em. So BAD NEWS is they don't make the part you need to fix your oven....GOOD NEWS is you get to go shopping for a Range!!! And BUY WHIRLPOOL!!!!!! DO NOT BUY LG,SAMSUNG, GE, FRIGIDAIRE, OR ELECTROLUX!!!!

    Hi Top oven only gets warm no matter where you set

    I have a 720ef and the top oven is not that good. The wattage rating is low, from memory about 750 watts and it takes a month of Sundays to warm up. I bought an oven thermometer from Lakeland a little while ago and when the top oven is turned on the Lakeland thermometer is showing that the oven thermomostat is running the oven at 20 degrees below what it is set to. If the thermostat neon is clicking off and on, then the thermostat/oven is working, albeit not as we expect.
