Some just lift and plug in. Some are connected by wire leads. If it is an open top range, just (for the most part) lift from he opposite end of the connected side and pull it out. On others, the range top must be lifeted up to expose the elements, visual insepction will tell you whether it is "plug in" or connected by wire leads. WHATEVER YOU DO, MAKE CERTAIN THAT YOU HAVE SHUT THE POWER SUPPLY OFF AT THE BREAKER. If it is connected by wire leads, they could be "slip on" terminals, requiring a pair of pliers to separate them and a few are just screw terminals. Most elements are just seated without being afixed by screws or anchors of any type.

Common faults with Belling DB3 Dual Fuel Range


For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS 1, If the Belling fan motor in the back of the oven is going round and the temperature light is on (normally little red light), but there is no heat then you will probably need a new oven element, these are generally very easy to fit and readily available from our website these can be tested with a electric meter.
To gain access to the BELLING element you will have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you will see the fan and element, if you look closely at the element you will probably see a small hole burnt in it where it has blown. Sometimes however there is no evidence of a fault but the element is open circuit ie: broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Some elements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nuts from the rear of the machine.
2, If your BELLING fan oven is getting warm but takes a very long time to cook or is burning the food more on one side than the other, then you need to check if your oven fan motor is working you will see the blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fan motor is not blowing the heat into the oven then you need To replace the oven fan motor is a little more expensive and a bit more involved.
3. If you have the opposite problem ie: your oven is over heating and burning everything then you will need to replace your BELLING oven thermostat
4, A quite common and easily overlooked answer is if your BELLING oven is not working at all ie: no heat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timer into AUTO mode, simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.

Hoover f7411-900 steamvac dual v, water heating unit repair


The element is burned out or the sensor is shot. When there is no water present a sensor is supposed to turn off the heating coil. This sensor is most likley fail safe, meaning if it is broken it wont turn on the heat because it doesn't know if there is water or not. Or the coil itself is fried. Somtimes running it for too long, or on a long extension cord will cause them to fail.

Control for dual element has to be wiggled just so -so to shut element off, what do I need to fix it? Heats perfectly, shutting it off is my only problem.


The control you're wiggling (infinite switch)needs replacement. Model# and the position of the dual element (right or left, rear or front) is needed to get the part number.

The centre element in my 4 slice model has gone. Can this be replaced?


Don't know if you can get the heating element as separate part. But, this can probably be repaired. It's likely either a burned connection/connector or the heating element is broken.

Bad connectors can be replaced, the heating element can be just twisted back together where it is broken.

COOKTOP


its been my experience that the dual burner switch is far more likely the culprit, unless you can physiclaly see the outer ring is broken( visual inspection works wonders. as far as trying to ohm out i generally look at theelemnet itself (4 wires lead to the elemnt you can trace 1 to the outer portion of element, and 1 to the inner portion.WITH POWER OFF Iswithc those 2 wires and the restore power try element ad watch for outer ring to work inner ring no good. now i know its the switch not sending power. reset wires and order new switch

Electric Heating Element Not Heating stove


It's not a fuse, but a wire or heating element has burned up. Please TURN OFF the circuit breaker until you repair the problem, or at least until you know what the problem is! You say "in" the stove, so I'm assuming that you mean in the oven. Whichever element it is, whether it's in the oven or on the stovetop, just needs to be removed and checked for continuity with an ohmmeter. Quite frankly, if it IS an element, then you should see a burned-out spot somewhere on it that's pretty obvious. Then you just need to replace the element. If it's a wire, then you will need to repair the wire so that it safely makes contact with the element again. That process is a little more involved than just replacing an element, but let us know what you find. I can describe a wire-repair procedure if need be. ;)
