Re: control knobs

Hi, Elan oven has seemed to drop off the earth right now but I have some feelers out trying to get parts for it. If you have a manual there may be a # in there to call. The oven itself may have a phone number or a company name to call for information on parts. The best way to fix your problem would be to replace the knobs with new ones. You may be able to take the ones you have to a parts place and they may have something to at least work temp until you get new ones. I will continue to work on finding parts for it so If you find anything or have any information to help me find them, Let me know. Hope I can help. kstfas

Calibrate oven control

There should be a little screw on your oven control back of the control handle which you pull the handle off to get to it. Don't turn very much but you will need a thermometer to check the heat degrees when you do this.

My oven wont turn off from the knob it keeps turning

You didn't say whether you have a gas or electric oven, or oven & stove. I'll assume you have a stove, just to cover all bases.

First, you should shut down the oven: a gas stove will have a valve on the gas line behind the stove. The valve will either have a red handle or a flat stem that usually has a hole in it. Turn either valve 1/4 turn to shut off gas, use a wrench on the flat stem. An electric stove should be shut off by flipping off the double circuit breaker for it in your electric panel. Do not unplug an electric stove when it is on; this can damage the plug &/or electrocute you.

Most likely the inside of the knob has stripped out. Look at the knob for a hole that has a setscrew in it: a small allen wrench or screwdriver will loosen the setscrew, most knobs don't have them and will pull off. Be careful to use even pressure on two sides of the knob; if you can't pull it off, use two butter knives or flat screw drivers to pry it up enough to get a grip on it.

Look at the center stem on the back of the knob, it will likely be cracked or stripped. Some stems have a D-shaped metal insert that strips out inside the plastic stem. If you have one, pull off a burner knob and compare the stems in the back, if they are the same size, put the burner knob on the shaft for the oven control, and use that knob to turn the oven control off.

If the burner knob won't fit, use your fingers or a pair of pliers (gently) to turn off the oven control shaft. If the shaft stops normally, you can turn the stove back on using either the gas valve or the circuit breaker. If you have a gas stove that doesn't have electric ignition (a clicking noise when you turn on a burner) you may need to re-light the pilots for the burners. Lift the covers off the burners to re-light the pilots.

If you have succeeded in turning off the oven, you need a new knob -- you can get one at an appliance parts store or maybe a hardware store. If the oven control did not turn off normally, I would leave the oven/stove turned off: the control itself will need to be replaced by a qualified repair person.

I just had a Frigidaire electric Single Wall Oven (FGEW2745) installed under a Bosch gas cooktop. The cabinet maker didn't allow enough room for the oven so my contractor had to lower it. However, as...

Any handle you replace on the oven will certainly void its warranty, especially if you have to drill the door to fit it. Generally the oven handle is designed for the oven, and as such most manufacturers dont make different door handles for them. Most likely you will need to get a different oven altogether, or void your warranty and find a suitable handle and attach it to the oven door yourself by some means.

Hope that helps.

Neff u1661n2gb/05. main oven not working and shorts out electric when try to switch on. top oven works no problem

I had a problem similar. The bottom oven stopped working and the left hand set of controls and clock died. I had three figure quotes for repair. I took the main control unit out from behind the switches, its a pain to do. I took pictures of where the wires went to save confusion later. I removed the main switch unit from the control unit by gently pushing back the inbuilt plastic clips. dont loose the small white connector piece on the end of the switch shaft. I gently pulled the switch knobs from the front then the knob extensions through the same holes. once the unit was out I turned it upside down I could see where two solder tracks on the circuit board had burnt out. I gently cleaned them up and bridged the gap with two short tinned pieces of single core wire I had stripped. I used a soldering gun as it gets really hot really fast and wouldnt damage the components underneath. the only fiddly bit when putting it back together was locating the bottom edge of the control unit in the little gulley, I had to bend the edge of the gulley down to make it easier. Once it was all back together it worked. Half an hour and I saved £300! Now I have to fix the hinges on the bottom oven door as it doesnt shut properly at the top. Any ideas anyone?

Oven does not turn off completely

You should pull the knob off and check that there is a metal liner in the knob itself. These sometimes fall out and the plastic knob does not turn the control properly. Get a new knob at your local appliance store.

Temperature fault

Hi there, usually when those knobs fall off as long as you can guess where it would normally be, all functions work the same. In terms of falling off, they are made to come off for cleaning. Also, could I bother you, you dont have the manual for this oven do you? As we need a copy? Thanks a lot, Kerrie.

Self-cleaning feature of GE Built-In Oven does not work

Simply set the Clock and Delay Start to the current time, then set the Stop Time ahead 3 hours. For example, if it is currently 8:00 then set the Stop Time to 11:00. The lights on the console will come on and the cleaning cycle will begin. At some point during the cycle when the oven gets hot enough, the lock mechanism is "fixed" and will not release until the cycle is complete.
