Oven has stopped heating up
This oven should have two elements.
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.
