SOURCE: aeg competence b 8139-4-m - oven not heating up

your heating element is probably bad. all u have to do is, make sure the oven is off, pull elem. away from it's holders on the top or bottom of the oven, then pull the elem. loose from it's sockets then, straight out of the oven. take to home depot, or lowe's, or an used appliance store. installation is reverseal.

SOURCE: Do the thermostat contacts attached to bimetalic

Hate to write answer to my own problem, but after showing (its THAT SIMPLE folks!) the innards to my wife, showing her how contacts do not move close 'nuf together to touch until dialed to 300F, she said, why not put a block under lower stip to raise it. Was about to, when I noted top strip appears to be merely spring steel, and she was advocating propping up the thinner lower BI metalic one, which would have stopped it from flexing as it must as temp of pan changes. SO, we brainstormed it, used her little jewelry needle nose pliers and alternately bent top (spring) strip down and lower (bimetalic) strip upwards with knob set at "warm" until they were TOUCHING, but nevertheless would separate when knob turned fully to "OFF" Since this thermostat pilot light works whether hooked to a pan or NOT, we plugged it in (no danger, probe is not electrified in any way unless maybe handle is dipped in water and salt!) and saw that light goes "on" at warm, off at "off" and further, that when we set it at 200F and hold a lighter under the probe (it is just hollow metal, not a precision device, simply conducts heat to metal strip inside) it turned off properly at what we guess is pretty close to 200F. Will add an addendum "solution" comment when we return thermostat to friends pan tomorrow and cook something!! No electrical degree, just a wife who got tired of me not fixing her firends pan and started unscrewing things until I got aggravated nuf to do something w/ it. Happy New Year.

SOURCE: The temperature on my honeywell

Just google RTH 2300 for the manual, check that the hold is not on, if it is push it to turn it off, if not read thru the manual. On most stats if the unoccupied set point are blocking the occupied set points run the unnocc. temp down and then set the occ. set points down. Good luck

Heating element won't heat. Control light comes

your element is shorted
since the elemen t is welded and fitted to the bottom of the pan it can be fixed but should not be
my advise get a new one
rival will just say it has water damage

Electric plug turns off

That is your thermostat going on and off. There is nothing wrong with your skillet. When it reaches the desired temp, the light goes off. When the temp drops, it will come back on.
