Question about Ovens
We have a Simpson 2001 fan-forced oven (65-647). A couple of days ago, in turning off the oven, the control knob was turned in the wrong direction and a sound described as a 'boom' was heard. Now neither the oven, the largest (back left) hotplate nor the clock are working. The griller and the other three plates are still operational. Any help in determining the cause of the problems would be much appreciated. I was initially thinking it might be the selector switch, before discovering the one hotplate also inoperable. Now I'm thinking it seems more like a blown fuse. Does that seem reasonable? Do these ovens even have fuses? If so, where are they typically located? Is it possible that a blown oven element could also knock out the clock and a hotplate? Thanks, David

On the back of the motors there are safty overload reset's, these are small red push in buttons. Also there are fuses for each motor inside the control panels assembly.

If the element has failed again in such a short time , then I would suspect that the fan is the culprit.
If the fan is not working, then the element overheats, and burns itself out.
The fact that the fan spins freely, proves nothing, as the fan can be still faulty.
The only way to prove if the fan is faulty, is to remove the oven from the housing, and remove the rear outer panel of oven,.test with a meter set to ac mains and test the fan motor terminals to see if there is power there when oven is set to heat, disconnect the element first. ,if there is ,and the fan is not running then the motor is faulty..
If there is no voltage there, then problem is elsewhere, and you will have to investigate furher.
Plz rate my solution.

There is a fuse in the back if you remove the rear panel. Check to see if the fuse looks good. If the element is bad, it won't effect the switch, light, or fan. The switch, light, and fan all run off of there own circuit. If that circuits is bad, has a burnt out fusible link, or the electrical circuit board they connect to is bad, then they won't work. You will likely need to trace the wiring from the control panel to the circuit that runs these three things. Use a volmeter to test for power and you can also use an ohmmeter to test for continuity of the circuit itself.

SOURCE: My Omega oven has stopped
The oven has a thermal trip switch behind the back wall of the oven and is under the back cover. It is attached to the back outside wall of the oven towards the top. Some thermal switches can be reset but most usually have to be changed. If you are handy you may be able to open the switch and click the little disc backwards and reassemble the switch. Make sure to refit the disc the right way around. Ensure that the power to the oven is off or the plug is pulled out before attempting to remove the back cover.

I would say that the oven element has blown. It is common especially if you have a fan forced model. Make sure the fan works before you go buying a new element as the replacement will fail early. Simpson ovens have to be removed from the wall cavity to replace the fan and the element. Make sure you tuen the power off before doing anything...
Give the parts supplier your model number so that you get the fight element ( and fan) if necessary.
