The problem is usually down to the thermostat - sometimes it can be moved and end up touching the grill and burning out - other than that they just wear out after time with the heat.

Have a look here for a spare - its easy to replace if your husband is half competent with fixing things.http://www.espares.co.uk

SOURCE: Electrolux EOB5630 oven cuts out

First thing you would want to check is, make sure you don't have any issues with the electrical connection to the oven first. Possible cuircut breaker issue.

Check these things first, you are probably going to find a loose connection somewhere. If that doesn't fix your problem.

Let me know and we can go from there.

    SOURCE: SMEG SA410X-S heat not coming on for fan forced

    The fan element (round) is more than likely blown. Open the oven door, take the rear cover off inside the oven (covers the element) and have a look at the element with a torch. If it is buckled, warped or has a blow hole in it, then it's faulty.

    Hotpoint SD97PI oven self cleaning funtion and grill not working


    The oven temperature is regulated by a temperature sensor when placed in self clean the sensor is removed from the circuit and full power is applied to both the bake and broil elements causing an the temperature to exceed in some some models up to 1,000 F. I would recommend against using self clean for the simple fact that no oven cavity to this date has been designed to withstand that high of a temperature and therefore excess heat is passed upward resulting in damaged lock mechanisms, control boards, and other electronic components. The most common complaint I have had with built in ovens besides the element burning out, is the oven door locked shut. When I get to the house and I ask to tell me a little bit of whats going on the story always starts " well, I was using the self clean option" or some variation of the sort.

    Looking for a manual for Whirlpool BS0801/WH oven


    I have a paper copy of the manual - if you need to know anything more than the information below post a more specific question.

    The function symbols on Knob F, clockwise from the top, are as follows:
    • 0 = Off
    • Lamp symbol = Lamp Only, no fan, no heating.
    • Fan + Drip Symbol = Lamp + Fan, but no Heating - this is for defrosting.
    • Fan inside a Circle symbol = Lamp + Fan + Oven Heating - this is the normal cooking position. The temperature of the oven is set on the Temperature Knob.
    • Final position = Grill. The temperature of the Grill is set on the Grill knob.
    The red indicator light only comes on when the Oven is heating (not the Grill), and goes off when the oven has reached it's set temperature.

    The bulb is 25W 230V Type E-14 300 Degree C.

    The oven draws a maximum of 2300W so requires a 10A supply.

    Zaunssi ZBF360X built in Oven Not Heating


    This tutorial will show you how to check your Zanussi element and how to replace your Zanussi cooker element.
    Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
    1. Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Zanussi manual.
    2. If you're Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
    3. When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.

    Not heating in fan forced mode


    Possibly your fan element has blown. Try and take the cover off that coves the fan inside the oven itself and use a torch to look at the element to see if it looks out of shape etc.

    Instruction manual


    HI SIR  
    When you first use your Oven, the Oven will need to "settle". That is, it needs to burn off production residues and dust. The metal used in the Oven will also expand slightly when first used. You will experience some crackling and a strong smell. This is perfectly normal and we advice you anticipate this "settling" prior to use. Using an empty Oven, select Function 4 and set a temperature of 250°, allow the Oven to "settle" for hour, turn to function 3 and heat for a further 1/2 hour.
    Multifunction Oven Function Selections

    2. Defrost - This function activates the fan only, (no heat is used) to allow controlled and hygienic defrosting.
    3. Conventional cooking - Normal or traditional cooking functions using the top and bottom elements. When using this function set the thermostat between 50 - 250°C. When the desired temperature is reached the yellow light will go out and then alternate between lit and unlit as the temperature is controlled.
    4. Fan-Forced cooking - This selection is best for multilevel cooking as the heat generated by the central element is circulated around the Oven, creating an even heat environment. You will need to set the thermostat dial between 50-250°C for this function.
    5. Center Griller - For best results set the thermostat to MAX. The door may remain closed or completely open.
    6. Large Griller - For best results set the thermostat to MAX. The door may remain closed or completely open.
    7. Fan Griller - This function combines the grill element with fan assistance and is used in conjunction with the thermostat. The Oven door must remain CLOSED during cooking. The thermostat dial should be set between 50-250°C for this function. 
    8. Fan-assisted Baking or Patisserie Setting
     - Combines the concealed bottom element with fan assistance and is used in conjunction with the thermostat. The Oven door must remain CLOSED during cooking.

    Advanced Oven Features

    Cavity Cooling

    The Oven has an advanced cavity cooling system. A cylindrical fan is mounted on the rear outside frame of the Oven. This fan assists the movement of air through the Oven cavity keeping it cool. In addition to reducing the temperature in the Oven cavity, the air is blown out around the Oven door handle which keeps the door handle cool. The cooling fan is activated when the Oven light or any cooking function is selected and will switch off after all Oven functions have been turned off.

    Triple Reflective Door Glazing

    Some Ovens have two levels of removable door glass. The two inner layers are removable and are made of a reflective glass which, in effect, reflects heat back into the Oven and results in a significant reduction in the outside door surface temperature. To clean the door glass, use a coin or large screwdriver to remove the screws. Wipe both sides of the inner, middle and outer glass. Wipe the sealing gasket. Don't forget to replace the rubber sealing gasket around the centre glass layer before replacing the glass. Ensure the narrow air gap lies between the inner and centre glass layers and the wider gap lies between the centre and outside glass layers. Tighten each screw gradually, one then the other until firm. Do not overtighten.

    Wipe Clean Enamel (Extra Optional)
    Some models have easyclean blue enamel paint throughout the internal cavity walls. Other models have baking trays and grill pans finished in the soft grey super tough "wipe clean" enamel. This enamel is less porous than conventional, so that food does not adhere as easily. Simply wipe clean with a soapy cloth or creme cleanser when cooking is finished. For baked on residue, use a smooth scraper or if necessary a non-caustic Oven cleaner.

    Drop Down Grill Element (Extra Optional)
    The removal of a single screw at the front of the upper grill element in some models allows the element to drop down so that cleaning of the roof of the Oven is made easy. On completion of cleaning, simply replace the grill element and secure with the screw, finger-tight.

    The Electronic Timer



    Normal Baking

    Function 3: Normal Oven baking using heat from both the upper element and concealed lower element.

    To bake, place the Oven rack in the appropriate position according to the type of food to be cooked. Turn the Function Selector to Position 3 and the thermostat knob to the correct temperature, and allow the Oven to fully preheat for best results.

    Ideal for cooking casseroles, soufflés, roast, meats, and other items which require a slow method of cooking.

    top


    Fan Forced Baking

    Function 4: Fan-forced central element cooking requires slightly different timing techniques than normal cooking. The fan draws the air in and over the central element which is positioned around the fan and then circulates it back around the Oven cavity. The even distributor of heat allows foods to rise and cook simultaneously regardless of shelf level. Lower cooking temperatures and in some cases less cooking time is another advantage of this feature.

    Turn the Function Selector to Position 4 and turn the thermostat to the desired temperature. Pre heating takes much less time than a normal bake Oven.

    Note: When cooking meats, for best results always preheat the Oven to ensure the meat surface is sealed to lock-in juices for a moist and tender result.

    Fan forced cooking is ideal for multilevel cooking e.g.. patty cakes. Another advantage of fan forced cooking is that different types of food may be cooked simultaneously without mixing the aromas or flavours. When using the Oven in this way, ensure that all the foods require the same cooking temperature and check the finish times of each dish for best results.

    Please note that fan-forced cooking is faster than conventional methods, so take care not to burn your food when you first start using this method.

    top


    Grilling

    Function 5 & 6: During grilling the door may remain closed or completely open.

    This function offers the traditional grilling method necessary to achieve proper browning without overcooking the interior of the foods.

    Position 5 activates the centre section of the upper grill element only, which is ideal for browning smaller portions or thinner cuts of meat.

    Position 6 activates the entire upper element for the grilling of large quantities or thick cuts of meat.

    Allow the griller to pre-heat for approx. 2 minutes before sliding the tray into position.

    Place the grill tray into the roasting pan and arrange food according to the function you have selected, either in the centre of the tray or spread across the full width of the tray. Position the tray at the correct grilling level and turn the thermostat control to MAX for best results.

    As the temperature is set to MAX you may need to adjust your grilling shelf height to suit the desired cooking result. If the tray is too close to the element, the food will be exposed to the full effect of the element and may burn and create smoke.

    Hotpoint bottom oven


    Cooking is determined by 3 things so let's look at what they are and what they do.

    They are:

    1. The Fan Oven Element - This is very much the same as a light bulb only instead of giving off light it gives off heat. Like a light that is switched On or Off by a wall switch, the Element is switched On or Off by a Thermostat according to the temperature required. In short if the element fails your oven will be cold.
    2. The Fan & Motor - This sucks the air in through the centre mesh and circulates it around the Element and pushes the heated air out of the top, bottom and sides of the back-plate. Fan ovens cannot heat properly if the fan is not running OR if the fan runs too slowly as the motor starts to fail.
    3. The Thermostat. - This is basically an On/Off Switch that responds to the temperature in the oven. If The Fan is running correctly and you are achieving some temperature in the oven, then the fault will be with the Thermostat.
    I hope this Helps - Terry
