Electric fan oven overheating

I have a Baumatic electric oven to which I have just replaced the broken element as it was not heating up anymore. Unfortunately, after switching the oven back on, I notice that the element keeps overheating, becoming incandescent and the RED thermostat light stays on and fails to regulate it. Before switching the oven off I checked if the thermostat light would go off by lowering from 250 to 75, but the red light stayed on. Can someone help me determine if the original spark that damaged the element I changed in the first place, as maybe also damadge the thermostat.. what I should do now? I don't feel safe using the over as it is now. any suggestions.. many thanks

It sounds like the thermostat is faulty, make sure the sensor is not detached inside the oven compartment, as this will affect the thermostatI if it is. If o/k, then the only option is to replace the thermostat. If it is fan assisted, then make sure the fan is working o/k as well.

Why has baumatic B501SS oven covered in light gray coating inside when heated, now not working


It sound like the heating element burned out. Check the element and see if there is a burned spot or blister somewhere along the element. If so the element will need replacing.

Baumatic oven not heating up. Grill and fan fine.


if it is the b180, the answer (having just fixed this) is really simple.

The coily bit is the oven element - it will have gone. A new one from eBay cost me about 6 quid.
[WHEN IT ARRIVES !]

Turn the power off.
Inside the oven use a philips screwdriver to remove the 4 screws (KEEP THEM !)
You will see a coily thing and a fan.


You unscrew 3 more screws (2 on the left and 1 on the right).
(KEEP THESE TOO!)

now ... bit tricky, have the new one inside the oven and take each wire off one at a time and put it on the new element.

Screw it back on but DONT put the last panel back in.

Turn the oven on maximum for about 2 minutes and see it glow red.

Turn the oven off. Make a cup of tea and have a couple of biscuits while admiring how good you are and waiting for the element to cool down!!!

Put the final panel back in place. Whole thing (including a cup of tea) takes about half an hour.

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.
Thanks.

No heat in oven


the element may be open circuit, test it by a continuity test. the actual element is inside the metal outer surrounded by a ceramic compound -you will not be able to see any breaks hence the electrical test.

Baumatic bt180 oven


assume a fan oven.does fan turn and oven light come on? if so problem is the circular element. if no fan and no oven light, then clock probably needs setting - this will be in instruction book. clocks sometimes go wrong but not often. if clock is faulty, a cheap repair is to bypass the clock so auto function no longer works
