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.

OVEN CONTROLS AND OVEN DONT WORK. RANGE TOP WORKS FINE.


Hello,

We're having the same problem. Oven light works, but plug by oven light switch does not. I changed the screw in fuse (15 Amp) in the oven, although it was blown, it didn't fix the problem.
I will be checking the double breaker on the electric panel tonight, making sure it's getting the full 220v, and if that is good, I will be looking at checking and replacing the clock.
Hope this helps.

My Jen air double oven freestanding range model series JDR8895 ELECTRICAL SYSTEM IS NOT working and I live in Panama can you help me???


If absolutely nothing is working the first thing top check is the electrical circuit breaker/fuse panel for the house. Make sure full voltage is going to the range.
Remove the rear panel where the wires come in to the range and look at the terminals. Something may be broken or shorted in there.
There are no fuses or reset buttons in this range that would stop the oven and the surface burners from working at the same time.

My smeg oven,(bottom fan oven) keeps getting hotter and hotter till it cuts out or the fuse blows when i switch it on no matter what temp i put it on,iam assuming its the thermostat,were is it and how yo...


The thermostat is obviously not working and you will need to replace it.

The thermostat is located behind the temperature selector switch on the control panel. The oven thermostat usually has a capilliary tube attached which goes in to the oven internally and is fixed on to the oven wall you will need to disconnect this also and remove it with the thermostat. Fitting the stat is the reverse of removal.

Make sure the electrical supply to the oven is switched off before starting work Hope this will FixYa.

Please remember to rate this solution.

Our Whirlpool 27" Built-in Combination Microwave Oven and thermal Oven won't work after self-cleaning model # RM770px882 Serial # XE1401024 Part # 3185651


This often is a stuck or faulty door switch and it has blown the interior microwave fuse.

Q-- My microwave is completely dead.
A - House fuse has blown or interior fuse inside the microwave has blown ( usually a part inside the microwave makes this fuse blow ) Sometimes a bad fuse holder inside the microwave cannot hold the fuse tight enough and the fuse will blow as well.

Q - The fan in my microwave oven is not running will this hurt my microwave?
A - YES, the fan cools the magnetron and electronics, take the microwave in for service, most fans are not too expensive to replace.

Q - My microwave blows the fuse inside itself as soon as I push the start button.
A - Usually a shorted high voltage capacitor...see components section

Q - I burnt something in my microwave and now it is dead...help!
A - The fuse inside the microwave may have blown, but more commonly the flame/oven thermostat has sensed the over cooked food and the flame/oven/cavity thermostat has opened up - Info on that

also look for this electric wiring chart given in this link below just click on the link

Beko double oven electric cooker - bottom oven (fan assisted) doesnt come on, rest of cooker works fine


This tutorial will show you how to check your Beko element and how to replace your Beko cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
    1.Your Beko oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Beko manual.
    2.If your Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
    3.When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.

Smeg Oven electric burning smell


My Smeg cooker worked fine for 5 years. Then I noticed that the fan which stays on after you turn off the oven did not ever turn off, unless you switched the oven off at the fuse box. I think this is a fan that cools the oven down, but some bit of it is now broken because it doesn't realise that the oven has cooled down. It smells funny when you first turn it on, so I don't know if that is an electrical fault smell. Model possibly 70cm A420-5, but could be an earlier model (bought in April 2000). Is double oven with 4 rings on top, 70cm wide.

Tappan double oven


I have the digital timer oven and also cannot find the manual. You have to set the bake time timer, I think for 3 hours. Then you set the oven knob on clean and turn on the temp knob, probably to full but I don't think it matters. When you engage the lock, the clean light should come on/ When the oven reaches high temp, the lock light will also be on.
