Since the element gets extremely hot when in operation, you need clips that are very heat resistant, which can be obtained from the Original Equipment Manufacturer. As far as the model number, it usually a plate that the on the surface that the oven door contacts. If you provide the model number, an owner's manual can be obtained.

HOW TO REMOVE FAN FORCED ELEMENT


All I needed was a phillips screw driver, a small hex socket drive and an 8mm wrench.

1. Turn off the mains at the switch board. There might be a switch near the oven or stove too, turn that off as well. Check that the power is off!
2. Remove the screws holding the oven to the cupboards. Mine was held in by 4 timber screws on the edge.
3. Slide the oven out of the wall. I used a small table to support it.
4. Remove the hex drive screws that hold the top lid on.
5. Using a trusted multimeter CHECK THAT POWER IS OFF! There are now exposed power terminals.
6. Undo the supply power terminals and remove the cable. I taped mine up.
7. Remove the back cover - more hex screws.
8. Pull the spade terminals off the heater element.
8. Inside the oven remove the shelves and side racks. They pop off the wall.
9. Pull the rear fan shield towards you. It should pop out at the top and then lift off 2 small tabs.
10. Remove the phillips screw at the bottom of the heater element.
11. Remove the 2 spring clips.
12. The element can now slide down and towards you.
13. Replace the element and put it all back together in reverse order.

The oven is getting up to temperature (have put oven thermometer in) but things are not cooking. The thremasats have been replaced , does anyone know what else could be causing this?


If when you select the temp on the control you are getting the red light to indicate the oven should be on the most likely problem will be the element. If it is the bottom oven element this is a crescent shaped element behind the back panel of the oven (panel usually held on by 4-6 Tx20 screws). The element is positioned around the fan blade and in some models (you have not supplied the complete ENr for me to check) there are 5 screws securing it in place. Two each side at the bottom of each end of the element and one top middle, this one may require the fan blade to be removed first to facilitate the removal of the screw and in turn the element (The fan blade is on a reverse thread nut). The electrical connections to the element are on the back of the left side end, so be very gentle when removing it so that the spade connectors do not come off (if they do you will need to get the whole unit out and remove the back panel to reconnect. DO NOT CARRY OUT ANY OF THE ABOVE UNTIL THE ISOLATED FROM MAINS...if in any doubt bite the bullet and arrange for a qualified engineer (such as BSH in the UK). Hope this gives you a starting point, if you require any further info or clarification,please add a comment and I will try to get back to you asap.Let me know how you get on.

Oven will not heat


the bake element has failed. they can be had for around 20 dollars. Unplug unit before
replacing the element. Usually will only need 1/4 inch nut driver to remove two
screws inside oven and slide out element and unplug the spade connectors.
The model and serial should be located behind the lower drawer on the left side.
An appliance parts store should carry this in stock since many models utilize the
same element. Hope this helps.

I took the wires off the clock/timer to clean the glass because junk got behind it. When I put it all together the clock/timer does not work. It may be that I have two wires crossed. I need a wiring...


I think I worked it out. Black = Neutral. Brown = Live for the two power spades. The four spades for the timer (from the top+ = Red, Orange, Brown then white on the bottom. You will notice that Red and Orange, Brown and White are clipped together. Timer (and oven) is now working perfectly.

My whirlpool electric oven broils but doesnt bake. model rf385pcwn1


Hi
The possibilities are a bad Bake element, a broken wire to the Bake element or a bad control board.
You have to remove the Bake element or to pull the range off the wall to perform the troubleshooting and find out which part is bad.
You have to inspect the wires, then remove the wires from the Bake element and check the element for continuity.
If there is nothing wrong then you have to check for 120VAC between each wire and ground and for 240VAC between the wires while the control calls for Bake. If there is no proper voltage then the control board has to be replaced.


However To remove old element, there are 2 bolts/screws on the back of the oven, attached to the element. There will be a silver bar holding the screws/bolts to the back of the oven.
Remove these screws/bolts with either a screwdriver or pliers by turning to the left.

After unscrewing the bolts, pull element out. It will have the electrical wires attached to it with a clamp on each side. Pull wire clamps up to remove the element.
Remove new element from box. Slide new element clamps up into the wires coming out from the back of your oven. (There will be "legs" to hold the element up from the bottom of the oven. These go on the bottom for support of the element).
Tighten existing screws/bolts onto oven through the holes in silver bracket. Do not tighten too much, just make sure is secured.
Turn electricity breaker on and plug oven into outlet. Turn on to 350 and see if it heats up.

Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.

Dual Oven - upper oven bake element replaced but no heat from it


Usually no internal fuses, and most of the time the controller is rated for fault interupt current.... age will degrade them though...

How did you change the element without pulling out the stove? is it a 'click/plug' in? might be that the socket is messed up...

You should not have to disassemble the cabinet, should just be a few screws and the unit slides out... sometimes hidden behind small movable pannels..

Peace

if you feel through the insulation you can find the two wires that attach to the element pull them through to plug the element back on but there is no plug per say but first are you sure the element is good were there no wires on the element when you removed it should have been two spade connectors with wires on them attached to the element hold my rating till you reply
