SOURCE: stoves 720ef fan oven cutting out

I confirm that you should get an oven thermometer as I did as my 720 wasn't behaving itself. Lakeland do one that works well and is not to expensive. I found that the fan oven was working ok but the top oven was way out, i.e. setting 160 on the dial produced 140 in the oven. The thermostat sensors for both ovens are located at the rear of each oven at the top right. They should be clear of all congealed fat etc and should be bright and silver in colour. If they are dirty this may cause them not to work correctly. Lakeland again do an oven cleaner that you paint on with a brush. It may take more than one go but it cetainly removes all the rubbish and may well restore the thermostat to near normal operation. When cleaning the sensors be careful of the thin wire from them as if this is damaged you will have to have a complete new thermostat.
(The oven cleaner works on everything inside the oven including the stay clean lining).
As a final thought is the cooling fan running when the oven fan is on as this may cause the oven to overheat?
Best of luck.

SOURCE: My kenmore gas oven won't heat. I turn to dial to

When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven would not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.

If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve would not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.

A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:

-- defective thermostat
-- defective selector switch
-- defective gas safety valve
-- defective gas valve coils

SOURCE: Westinghouse Freestyle 476 Cooktop Oven

After getting an electrician out, apparently the time needs to be set on the oven. As we're in a rental & don't have a manual/ couldn't download one, we got it to work after holding the first two buttons in (the timer buton + the one that looks like a hot pot) along with the + button at the far right, which made the tim tick on, so it could be set.

The oven works now! : )

Hi RMSINN,

Believe it or not, the clock has to be set before the oven will light.

To set the clock, instead of using function names for buttons, we'll just call them buttons 1 through 6 going from left to right.

Push buttons 1 and 2 at the same time. You're now in clock setting mode. Push buttons 5 and 6 to make the clock go minus and plus.
Cheers
SG

My Electrolux Eog6330xn oven cuts out after about an hour and the ignighter then constantly sparks. the oven then has to be turned off to cool down before it will relight. Any advice.


Hello there Gary and welcome to FIXYA

Usually when an oven won't bake properly or stops baking , it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself. The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame. I would disconnect the power to the oven then unplug the wiring assy and remove the part then clean all of the terminals really good then reassemble it then try the oven again if it still does not work properly i would go ahead and replace that part ok
Please keep me posted on how this is going i can give you more help but this is the most common problem ok?
Best regards Mike

Oven temp will not change


Most ovens have BAKE, BROIL and yours might have CONVECTION. Turn each on independently. If all don't work its one problem if only one doesn't its another
Also is it the gas doesn't ignite or it ignites then no temp change (or electric gets to xx degrees but doesn't get hotter?

Oven Problems Replacing the Igniter

Our 17year old GE gas oven/broiler stopped lighting today. What might be the problem? Stove burners work.


Most likely culprit is the igniter.
When you turn the oven on it opens a gas valve allowing a small amount of gas to flow thru the pilot light. The igniter then lights the pilot and when the sensor determines the pilot is lit it opens th emain gas valve and the oven lights. If the igniter fails and doesn't light the pilot the sensor doesn't heat up and it shuts down the pilot and nothing works.
The igniter is usually accessable under the oven by removing the drawer. It has a single wire attached and looks like a short cigarette made of ceramic witha metal tip.
You didn't provide model number so I can't give you part number but if you look it up here you may be able to get one from Sears

This will be why the oven acts up. The broiler doesn't rely as much on this as the bake part does. Replace this and it should fix your problem.
