It sounds like you have a hot wire going to ground (earth) and your oven is protecting you as it should. Finding the problem will take a little know how and I would advise you to find a serviceman or friend with some electrical experience to check it out. Someone could try and talk you through it, but that would be an unsafe option.

Troubleshooting power issues for whirlpool accubake double oven


Nothing Works, or the Oven / Range / Stovetop Works Only At Certain Times:

1.Home breaker flipped or the fuse blown?Possibly an electrical surge has flipped the breaker. Check your breaker or fuse box and replace or reset as necessary.
2.Power cord plugged in?Grab the plug and wiggle to determine a good connection.
3.Power cord damage?Damaged rubber with wires showing through or the wire is being pinched can cause issues. Electrical tape is acceptable for covering damaged wires.
4.Aclicking sound could be something wrong with a relay. Check for any loose connections around the main control board on your oven. The click you hear is a relay losing power and switching back on. If the clock resets then something is causing power interruptions to the board.
5.Even a bad relay door switch will hinder your oven from operating.

If your oven has internal fuses, a wiring or component problem could have caused a fuse to blow. A blown fuse is an indication that a component has shorted or failed, and the problem will need to be corrected. Most ovens that use fuses will have an indication of the circuits that are affected by a particular fuse. If an oven fuse has blown, then you should inspect the oven element and the associated wiring to determine the cause before replacing the fuse.

Wiring up


  • If it is a single oven attaching a 13amp plug and connecting it to a socket is fine. If it is a double oven it needs to be connected to a dedicated cooker circuit from your fuse board via a cooker control switch with 6mm twin and earth cable.

I tried to fix the wiring in an external light. Did the job, but with bad connections, put in bulb and switched on. Blew fuse and now the switch will not turn off and I am left with a live wire in front of...


Switch contacts fused together

In most external fittings there is a live coming from the switch a neutral going back to the lighting ring main and an earth wire for protection

You are not competant to be rewiring any house wiring , the statement about the earth wire proves that.

No earth is akin to jumping into a lake without a life preserver on

Thermador oven sc302 no heat


On modern electronic control ranges, the oven temperature sensor
is the part that regulates the oven temperature. If it is not working properly it could be the reason why the range or oven won't start. This part can be found inside the oven on the rear wall near the top. Most modern ovens will display a fault code if the oven sensor is at fault. If you think the sensor may be the issue you can check the resistance with a multi-meter but will need to know the correct resistance of the sensor at room temperature. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test.
