Question about Fisher and Paykel OS302SS, Stainless Steel Single Oven

Rubbing sound-like noise when switching bottom oven on

We have replaced melted fan heating element of top oven and the bent down large square heating element of bottom oven. Top oven works fine, but when switcing bottom oven on, we hear a sound like the fan is touching something. We pulled out the mesh infront of the fan, but the noise continued. Incidentally, when we replaced the element and started the oven, we heared a bang, but there was no rubbing noise to speak of. I doubt if there is a mechanical problem, but it could be electrical. Can anyone help us please?

    Hi Adrian

    Thank you for your reply. The fan is running free without touching anything, but the noise (sounds like drilling noise) comes on as soon as you switch the oven on and before the fan comes on. Does this suggest to you that the problem lies elsewhere?

    Best Regards

Most likly the fault is the fan blades touching the side of the circular hole,to test.1.switch of all power.2.when power is switched of try switching your oven to on position.if oven will not work then proceed3.if you can turn the fan blades by useing a thin piece of wood or simler.4 if when you turn the blades you hear a rubbing noise you might take a closer look if you have torch point it in if you see the blades touching or one of the blades touching it might be possable to to push the offending blade back very slightley useing the same piece of wood you yoused at 3.if this fails to solve your problem the fan moter might be ready to give up. I hope this can solve your problem.yours adrian.

How do I replace the bottom oven element in a CDA CD 907 double oven


ISOLATE MAINS POWER BEFORE WORKING ON THIS APPLIANCE
Remove the back of the oven check temp controller before replacing or buying element, as this can often stop any heat being produced. The element is in front of the fan, if this model is fan assisted, remove fan, after removing element inspect to see any small hole in metal, if you see a large hole more than 10mm , this could be a sign that the fan needs cleaning. Clean fan with WD40, do not switch oven on untill fan has dried off. Then replace element, switch oven on low with door open, if you feel slight heat, go for a full test, gradually build up heat, keep on for at least 30 mins, make sure the oven reaches temp, you can expect some smell from a new element, this is protective oil, and considered normal.

Are the top and bottom heating elements both supposed to heat? Only the bottom one is heating except when specifically set on "broil".


Most ovens with top and bottom elements have a multifunction control switch which enables the user to select a certain setting to suit their cooking. The control switch would normally have small pictures of the elements, fan forced function etc, to show what each setting does. Sometimes you may only require the bottom element working and other times you may want/need both.

The fan and oven light in bottom oven works but not heat.


The heating element is the likely culprit as they burn out and go open
circuit..(ie ...disconnected and will not heat up )
If you can use a multi-meter , then the element can be tested using the resistance range (with the oven SWITCHED OFF )

Thermador SC301T heating elements not working (top and bottom). elements look fine, oven turns on but elements stay cold.... any help would be appreciated. thanks, Tony


Its the thermal safety switch. When it trips - it cuts any power from reaching BOTH elements. Open the oven door - at the top wehere the oven latch is - remove the long black panel. In the middle - on the right is a small cylindrical switch...push down on the top - in the very center...it will rest the switch (like a circuit breaker) and then reassemble. Just did it on mine (2nd time) and it fired right up. Good luck
