Re: i have a southbend silverstar.

Check the fan spacing from the back wall. I think that model should be about 3/4" between the back of the fan and the back of the oven wall. That will probably put it about an 1/8th to 1/4 inch from teh baffle in front of the fan. Also make sure the baffle is installed correctly.

I have a New World Double oven, dual fuel range cooker - NW 90DFD0 The main oven isn't heating up.

Hello Ally;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You may not have a problem. Normally your oven will rise about 40 degrees F. above the set temperature and then shut down, until the oven temperature falls 40 degrees F. below the set temperature, then the oven turns back on.

Your oven temperature is controlled by you oven thermocouple.

You also have a high temperature limit switch, which turns the fan on when you go too far above the set temperature to vent the oven. This may be bad.

Set to 'fan' and 180 degrees, the oven 'overtemperatured' to the extent that I could see a glow of the elements via the fan recess

Hello John;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

There is no thermal cut off.

There are only 3 controlling components:

1.) Your heating element - I your heating element glows then this component is probably good. Just to be on the safe side, inspect the two contacts at the back wall for corrosion.

2.) Your oven thermocouple - Remove your oven thermocouple and Ohm it out. You should get a reading between 1000 - 1100 Ohms if it is good.

3.) Your oven Control - If the two above components check out as good then you have a bad oven control. If you have a control board type oven control - turn the power off at your breaker box for about 10 minutes and then turn it back on. It is rare, but sometimes you can reboot the board.

I have chef EGC651S oven with separate grill. On fan assist oven only heats up to a certaain temp and doesnt get any hotter what could be the reason for this

Probably thermostat problem, although some chance you have one side of a 220vac breaker not working. In otherwords oven heating element is "getting" half of the required power. Call electrician!

If you can see the element heating up, but the fan is not working, then you need to replace the fan motor assy, if you do not, then the element is in danger of burning out.

Hello- This is a brand new model, but it works the same as the rest. Heat is produced by the elements. The fan has an element that glows when heating the air. --Convection oven glass gets hotter than normal fanless models.-- This is all normal operation of the oven.  To ensure full life of oven, avoid using the 'self-clean' feature. Techs call this the 'self-destruct' cycle. Please reply to this post if info is helpful- have more if needed- Thanks- Ed

The coils should glow red when working. If the lower (bake) element does not glow it may be burnt out. Some ovens cycle the bake and broil elements during preheat and that mey be why you are getting some heat.

Whrilpool electric range-oven appears hotter on left side

Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

This probably means you have a defective heating element that does not heat evenly through out the length of the element!
