Problem start when i turn Oven only on teka, then the fuses blown up. I can still use grill but whwn I turn to oven fuses go blow up again.


Hi! It seems it is not the heating element! It seems to be before that. Either a short circuit delivering to much current thus causing the blow. I would check the corresponding cable all the way to the circuit and the circuit elements corresponding to the oven element. The grill and oven elements being "independent" explains why grill still works. (A short circuit seems quite possible to me!)

The grill on my Hotpoint EW 41 Electric freestanding cooker has stopped working after my wife put aluminum foil into the grill pan which then touched the grill element causing it to 'blow' and so...


The grill element should not 'blow' by just touching it - it should be earthed. The elements do gradually disintegrate over time & the inside wire element either fractures or touches the element casing causing the mains to trip. Sometimes this makes it trip just once & then stops working. Replace the element - not usually any fuse in circuit with this. Often held in by 2 screws adjacent to the element at back of oven and conections via Fast-ons- Rick

The grill (Upper Oven Grill Element) in the oven is not working, I realized the 4 wires at the back that connect to it are all loose. Can i fix it by connecting them myself? is it something dangerous or...


With 4 terminals, it sounds like a double grill element. But it could also be a single grill element with a second oven element. If the spade connecters are loose they need to be tightened first. Get a pair of pliers and gently squeeze the terminals until the gap reduces so when it slides on it will be tight. Do you know what wires go where? If so reconnect them. If you don't do the following;
As you look at the element terminals they should run horizontally. Look at the element inside the grill compartment. From left to right, the no. 1 and no. 4 terminals should be the same element and the no. 2 and no. 3 terminals should be the other element. If this is correct put the 2 neutral wires, in any order, on terminals 1 and 2 and the active terminals on 3 and 4. This should work. You just have to check the correct element comes on when you operate the grill/oven controls.

Creda Concept Solarglo Cooker. Grill not working. Elements seem ok as top oven works fine. Any ideas gratefully accepted! Thanks in anticipation.


Most common problem is that the grill element is probably faulty/blown. Also check the wiring at the grill element terminals as wiring sometimes burns off. The grill controllers don't normally get faulty as they generally last a lot longer than the elements.

My bosch oven grill element is not working and my oven does not seem to be getting as hot as it should. any ideas what it could be.


More than likely the grill element has failed, and this could account for the oven not getting hot enough, as on some makes, the grill element is on at the same time as the oven element, so if the element has failed, then it will not be hot enough.
My advice would be fit a new grill element, and this hopefully will solve the problem of the oven not being hot enough.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Hotpoint cooker, grill doesn't work but top oven does


If the elements 'look' okay, they probably are. The 'infinite control switch' is probably the problem. With out the use of a meter, it's guess work. Unless you can see a connection problem.

Oven problem


Check that the solar plus grill element is working properly by selecting full grill, the whole element should heat up, if only half element heats up , then you need to fit a new grill element complete.
If the grill element is o/k , then it is possible the top oven base element is faulty, to check that is working, put top oven on and after a few minutews feel the base of the top oven, and it should be hot to the touch if it is not, then the base element has probably failed , and you will need to fit a new one.
These are the possible reasons for it to heat up slowly.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
