SOURCE: Oven Temperature Probe

It could be your ignitor, if weak it might not be good enough to draw ampage.I would suggest to change both ignitor and temp probe to be in a safer side. part number for ignitor is 12872 $56.0+, Part # for your oven temp. sensor 833085, it should not be more than $28. other part from www.repairclinic.com.

SOURCE: Oven won't heat up

Ok, this is a definite element malfunction. you can confirm this by using a multimeter and connecting the meter to the terminal points on the element. once connected, turn on the heating cycle and if you can register a reading and the element dosen't light or produce any heat, this will confirm element failure and you will need to replace it.

Please rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: convection upper oven not heating.

I Have worked on quite a few of these in the last few weeks, i have found that about 50% of these problems are caused by the control board and the other 50% caused by the thermal fuse, you can check the fuse by removing the unit from the wall and checking for continuity at the thermal fuse. If the fuse is in fact ok then it is the board that is not sending the correct amount of power to the elements. So the Power Control Board is what will need to be replaced, you can purchase both of these parts at, http://www.reliableparts.com/ by using your model number.

Please rate my solution if it was helpful to you.

If you need more in depth information or pictures on how to remove and take this machine apart, feel free to ask.

Thanks, Repairman45

    SOURCE: oven turns on but wont heat up

    Hello Jacob J - Try resetting the range by unplugging it or flipping the breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective and oven does not bake or broil contact a professional to move forward accurately. Range could possibly be experiencing an issue with a wiring failure, EOC, sensor probe and/or faulty elements which would need further diagnosing.

    Why won't the oven work without the probe ?


    the oven sensor is what detects the amount of heat needed to operate correctly. thus it if is not detecting any heat you may have no operation of oven

    Tip

    Broiling and baking element in my electric oven are not heating.


    Hi.

    If both broiling and baking element are not heating, then the most common fault causing the problem is a defective temperature probe.

    The probe is located inside the oven cavity.
    On most ovens there is only one temperature sensor, connected in series on the circuit from electroning oven control to elements. The probe will control both baking and broiling element, opening the circuit when limit temperature is reached.
    When the probe fails, it will affect both baking and broiling function.

    The temperature probe is tested reching the probe, cutting or disconnecting its wiring, and testing the probe at room temperature, with a multimeter set on impedance at Rx1. If the multimeter reads no continuity (circuit open), then the probe must be replaced.

    If the temperature probe is good, then parts that may be responsible for the fault are oven electronic control and wiring. Having both elements failing at the same time would be rather unusual.

    Regards.

    Thermador Built in oven scd302 not heating upper oven, lower oven fine. Heating element not glowing red as the oven below it does.


    Hi.

    Problem is usually either temperature probe or heating element.

    Grab a multimeter and set it on impedance (Ohms).
    Remove first temperature probe and then heating element.
    If either probe or element is reading open (ohms infinity), then replace the part.

    If both probe and elements are not open, then the problem is either wiring or oven electronic control. The most common fault resulting in no heat is the temperature sensor located inside the oven cavity.

    I have a SMEG SE398X-5 wall oven that does not heat up. The light inside & the controls comes on but will not heat up so there is power to the controls & lights but not to the element & fan.


    Hi.


    If both baking and broiling element do not heath above a certain temperature, then the part to be replaced is the temperature probe, still located inside the oven cavity.

    A faulty temperature probe will keep circuit to the heating elements open, affecting both broiling and baking function.

    The temperature sensor can be tested removing it from the oven cavity and reading Ohms on the sensor wires. If the circuit is open at room, then the temperature probe must be replaced.

    The oven wont heat up.


    Hi.

    Since the oven has two heating elements, if the oven does not heat up on any condition, and both broiling and baking element are not working, then the most common fault causing the problem is a faulty temperature probe.

    The temperature probe is located inside the oven cavity.
    On most ovens there is only one temperature sensor, connected in line on the circuit from electronic oven control to baking and broiling element.
    When the probe fails, it will affect both baking and broiling function.

    The temperature probe is tested reaching the probe, cutting or disconnecting its wiring, and testing the probe at room temperature, with a multimeter set on impedance at Rx1. If the multimeter reads no continuity (circuit open), then the probe must be replaced.

    If the temperature probe is good, then parts that may be responsible for the fault are oven electronic control and wiring. Having both elements failing at the same time would be rather unusual.

    If only one element is failing, then the fault is probably the element. In that case you can test the element removing it from the cavity, and testing Ohms on the element. If circuit is open , then the element must be replaced.

    Regards.

    Code F-3 or F-5 appears when oven heats


    this is usually a temp sensor probe problem.check you wiring between the probe and the electronic control board. at room tempt check the resistance on the probe if it less than 500 ohms replace the probe.

    Oven on RF263LXTT2 does not maintain a constant heat. Oven heats, but doesn't seem to continue heating at a constant heat during the baking process. Both coils heat up during the preheat. Seems like once...


    The problem looks like a faulty electronic control. When you select baking, the broiling element should not come up.

    Before replacing control assembly, test the temp probe located inside the cavity, check the wiring harness to temp probe and elements, and ensure that the fan is working if the oven is fan assisted.

    5 yr old Jenn Air Electric oven won't maintain oven temperature


    Technician just left our house with same issue. Jenn-Air had issued a technical bulletin as the temperature probe is mounted directly to the heating element, and measures the heat of the element, not the oven. Their fix is a revised temperature probe that goes at a 90 degree angle away from the heating element.

    If your temperature is consistent, just off by a set amount of degrees, there is an adjustment you can make at the control panel.
