SOURCE: my oven temperature is 100 degrees hotter than it should be

It will be the sensor inside the oven compartment that is causing the problem.
A new sensor should cure the prob, certainley cheaoer than buying a new oven.
Hope my advice helps you.

SOURCE: Stove Top on Oven works fine. The Oven has stopped working

there is more than likely a problem with the control board.but you can check the continuity of the bake element.this may also be bad

SOURCE: Simpson Apollo can't set clock so oven won't work

I don't know if this will help. For the 720ef , this is what you need to do.
There are five buttons on the clock panel and from left to right they are:- Minute Minder, Cook time, Ready Time, Plus and Minus.
TO SET THE TIME OF DAY
Press the Cook Time button and the Ready Time button simultaneously. Use the Plus and Minus buttons to set the time.(24hr clock).
TO SELECT AN ALARM TONE.
Press the Minus button to listen to the first tone. Release it and press it again to listen to the second tone etc (3 tones)
Releasing the button after the tone has sounded will automatically set that tone.
SETTING THE MINUTE MINDER.
Press the Minuter Minder button and either the Plus or Minus buttons simultaneously to set the time.
You can cancel the timer at any time by setting it back to 00.00 by using the Minus button.
After setting, the display will revert to the time of day, but by pressing the Minute Minder button again, the display will show the remaining time.
If you want all the information, then it is best if you supply a vaild email address and this will give you access to my BT Digital Vault, where you can have a complete copy of the handbook that I have scanned in.

SOURCE: I have a Simpson electric

You need to change the "Simmerstat", take the model number to your local electrical parts supplier/parts counter at your local stove retail shop that sells Simpson stoves and ask for one for that model, make sure you get the right one for the position as some control a single element and some control dual elements.

*** TURN OFF THE WALL SWITCH AND ENSURE NO POWER IS APPLIED TO THE STOVE BEFORE PROCEEDING ****
Remove the upper back panel of the stove. Swap wire for wire of the old simmerstat to the new one, remove the knob from the old Simmerstat, undo the nut securing the simmerstat in the oven control panel and discard, fit new one, secure, fit knob, fit back panel, turn on wall switch and test.

Some countrys/states require registered electricians perform this task on electrical appliances so you must ensure you can do this legally before you start and take the relevant safety precautions and don't electrocute yourself.

How to change lower element in DeLonghi Airstream Convectio Oven


  • How to change lower element in DeLonghi Airstream Convectio Oven??

  • Preheat ovens only when necessary. With conventional ovens, keep the preheating time to a minimum. Unless you're baking breads or pastries, you may not need to preheat the oven at all.
  • Food cooks more quickly and efficiently in ovens when air can circulate freely. Don't lay foils on racks. If possible, stagger pans on upper and lower racks to improve air flow.
  • Use glass or ceramic pans in ovens. You can turn down the temperature about 25°F and cook foods just as quickly.
  • Do not open the oven door often to preview the food. Each time you open the door the oven temperature drops by 25°F. Watch the clock or use a timer instead.
  • Full-size ovens are not very efficient for cooking small- to medium-sized meals, it generally pays to use toaster ovens or microwave ovens.
  • Check to be sure the oven door gasket is tight. Adjust or replace gaskets as required.
  • If you have a self-cleaning oven, consider using the self-cleaning feature immediately after regular baking when the oven is still hot. Less energy will be required to reach the cleaning temperature. Try not to use the self-cleaning feature too often.
  • Keep range-top burners and reflectors clean; they will reflect the heat better and save energy.
  • Match the size of the pan to the heating element; more heat will get to the pan and less will be lost to the surrounding air. A 6-inch pan on a 8-inch burner will waste over 40% of the energy.
  • On electric stove-tops, use only flat-bottomed pans that make full contact with the element. A warped or rounded pan will waste most of the heat.
  • When cooking with a gas range-top burner, use moderate flame settings to conserve gas. Also make sure the pilot light is burning efficiently, with a blue flame. A yellowish flame indicates an adjustment is needed because the gas is burning inefficiently.
  • Whenever possible, use a pressure cooker. By cooking food at a higher temperature and pressure, cooking time is reduced dramatically and energy use is cut by 50-75%.

    Ge oven will not preheat but broiler and stove top still works


    Hello.

    When an oven won't bake, it's because the bakeelement is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at thebottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This elementhas an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it maylast for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

    If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem.Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system tolocate the defective wire or component. When the temperature is consistent buttoo high or too low, it could be one of several different things.
    First checkto see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It couldbe lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This wouldcause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is notdislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibratedor defective. Electronic ovens with a digitaldisplay use a sensor to monitor oven temperature.
    To solve temperature problemsfor these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-displaymodels, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See youroperator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital displayoften use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of theseunits, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to moreaccurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat.
    If, when you remove the knob,there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you canloosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knobisn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 35 to 45degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

    Thanks.

    I need a manual for omega oven,model not known.


    Hello. If your stove is manufactured by Omega Appliances, it appears that they no longer produce it. That said I can speak to your heating element issue. When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out. You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results. If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component. When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

    Faulty obsolete (20yr old) oven thermostat with separate fan/light switch. Can't find a 'universal' replacement. If I fit a standard 2 tab thermostat, the fan and light will switch with the element Stoves oven DF550 SI with a 46thc502/G5 thermostat which controls well (if 40C higher relative to the oven thermometer). However after an overnight cool down the oven element switches on when the mains is turned back on, even though the oven control is off. I just twiddle the oven thermostat control slightly and all is well. I can't find a 250C, 1m phile, 24mmx6mm spindle thermostat with a separate connection tab for the internal recirculating fan and oven light anywhere. Otherwise the single oven cooker works and looks like new (nearly). I was wondering whether I have to piggy back a switch on the back of a standard 2 tab thermostat (or vica versa) or attach a separate switch to the oven. Can't believe I'm the only one with this problem. I'm guessing some fragile electrical contact occurs in the thermostat on cooldown to turn on the element and its in-series lamp, and this contact easily breaks by slightly turning the thermostat. ps there is no timer and I do have the circuit diagram. I found a working solution to this problem: When turning off the oven, I don't take it to the end stop. I turn it passed the click when the element and indicator turn off, then further till the ligth and fan turn off and just a fraction further but not to the end stop. Now the oven element doesnt turn on each time I turn the mains on for some other reason ( eg grill or igniters). I guess there is something wrong inside the thermostat, but this work arround seems OK if not ideal. I've marked a new stop position around the oven dial to remind me. This was easier than making a physical stop for the oven dial.
