Surface burners
are typically either a coil type, solid type or a ribbon coil as used in smooth top ranges. All of these consist of a heating wire that uses electric current to produce heat. Coil type elements can be checked for continuity by removing them from the terminal block and testing them with a multi-meter.

You should also inspect the terminal ends for signs of heat damage or corrosion, and if present, you should replace the terminal block or receptacle at the same time. You will need to remove power from the range to change the terminal block. Solid elements and smooth top elements require raising or removing the main top to gain access. You will need to remove power from the range before lifting the main top. Continuity can then be checked with a multi-meter, once you have removed the wires from the element terminals.

On modern electronic control ranges, the oven temperature sensor
is the part that regulates the oven temperature. If it is not working properly it could be the reason why the range or oven won't start. This part can be found inside the oven on the rear wall near the top. Most modern ovens will display a fault code if the oven sensor is at fault. If you think the sensor may be the issue you can check the resistance with a multi-meter but will need to know the correct resistance of the sensor at room temperature. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test.

The infinite switch
on the control panel controls the power to each surface element. If you have no heat at an element and the element and terminal block check ok, then you may have a defective infinite switch. Disconnect power to the range and remove the console back panel. Locate the switch and check for overheated wires or faulty terminals first. Test the switch's contacts for continuity with a multi-meter. If defective, replace the switch.
If the infinite switch does not appear to be defective, then you should check for proper voltage to the switch. This is a live high voltage test and should only be performed by qualified persons.

Most modern ovens use an electronic control board
to control the oven functions. These models will use the control board to operate the oven safety valve on a gas range or oven, and the bake and broil elements on an electric range or oven. If there is no power to the igniter circuit, or the element circuits, then you should check the control board to verify that there is power at the appropriate output relay. These are live voltage checks and should be performed by qualified persons only. If there is no output voltage then the control should be replaced.

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

The oven burner igniter
commonly known as the hot surface igniter is used in modern gas oven burners to open the gas valve and to ignite the gas. As the igniter draws electric current it will heat to a high temperature and glow, as well as cause the bi-metal in the oven safety valve to warp and open the valve releasing the gas to be ignited. This sequence normally takes about a minute. Igniters come in both flat and round styles and are very fragile. If the burner does not light then you should check the igniter first. If the igniter does not glow at all, then check for power to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If power is present then the igniter may be open circuit and can be checked for continuity with a multi-meter. If the igniter is glowing, but the burner is not lighting, the igniter may be weak and still be at fault because it requires a certain amount of current draw to open the valve. This check requires the use of an amp meter and should be performed by a qualified person. If the igniter is defective then it must be replaced.

I turn on the top oven and the grill element also comes on. I can grill ok but I cannot use the top oven for baking. Any advice please?


Hello;
My name is Peter. i am a retired field service appliance technician.

It sounds like you have a bad control. I can not be sure of this because you did not proved a model number so I can see what you have
Sometime these components are inexpensive and easily replaced.

You model number is on a metal plate on the upper face of your oven after you open the oven door.

My electric oven and grill will not work


It could be the thermostat is defect, an overheat protection is defect and does not close while the temperature is low enough. or the heater is defect.
When the heater and grill are separated, please try the grill. If it does not work I think the thermostat is defect. Most of the time there is no extra fuse in the oven.
When the oven is working on 2 or 3 separate groups, please check if one of the mains fuses has tripped.

Both lights on the top oven work when using it as an oven but when using it as a grill, they don't! There doesn't appear to be any other fault as the oven and grill still work fine. Any thoughts...


The unit is working as it should. The top oven lights will only come on when the top oven control knob is turned on. The grill control does NOT turn the lights on. If you want to see what you are grilling, then you should turn the top oven control on to its first position. This works even if the grill is operating.

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.

New World TGO 70 grill not working because door was closed


THIS IS PROBABLY BEST LEFT TO A QUALIFIED ENGINEER. To reset the grill thermal cut out. This is located under the metal panel at the top of the unit and it is necessary to ether partially or fully remove the whole oven from its housing to get at it. 1. Disconnect electric supply. 2 remove the 2 housing retaining screws. These are located either side of the at the top of the grill cavity. 3.Pull the whole oven /grill unit out and support it underneath to stop it falling forward. 4. Remove metal cover covering top of oven. 5. the safety cut out is a small component that has 2 wires connected to it by spade terminals, in the middle of which is a small red button. push this button gently with the end of a pencil or screwdriver until it clicks. This should now be reset and allow the gas supply to the grill to resume. Finally reassemble making sure that the integrity of the gas and electrical supplies are, in no way compromised and test.

Delonghi oven grill broken, oven still works?


You will probably find it is the grill element that is faulty, a common fault on your brand of oven, to be certain, you need a meter to test it.

Grill not working on a Bosch electric single oven HBN2850GB


Hi, most likely to be a faulty element. If the fan is working and there's no heat, definitly is the element. If it tripped the mains, have a good look inside with a torch and should be able to spot either a burn mark, a hole or a bend on the element.
Cheers

Stoves 720ef grill not working


The grills appear to be independant of each other. Does the oven still work and the oven light come on?

Depending on your answer it could be that the Top Oven Switch has gone faulty. The Grill Regulator and the Switch work together on the top oven. To get at both you will need to take the top of the oven off.
