Question about Ovens

1 Answer

My in laws have just purchased a new Westinghouse WVE665 electric oven. Does anyone know if the oven light can be turned off while the oven is on?

The light comes on as soon as the oven is turned on and stays on the entire time. The manual which is a generic one covering many models states that the oven light can be turned on or off at any time by pressing and holding the bell/timer button for 5 secs but this model has no such button - only a similar electronic icon that does nothing when pressed. Does anyone know if this light be turned off at all?

I have a photo of your oven on screen and in the electric area there is a bell icon to the left of the display.
you press that for 5 seconds or more
you say that it is not working and as it is new then get a service technician out under warranty to check/fix the fault

How to switch on oven westinghouse kimberly 509


If the oven does not work on bake or broil settings then there has to be a problem with the circuit, either on the control board or the thermostat. If only the bake element does not work then the element itself most likely needs to be replaced. There are ways to isolate further but takes some basic electrical knowledge and tools. Note that I am not recommending that you do the following linked procedure - merely pointing out an information source. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZNyEqXCNOA

Turn off the power to the oven. Grip the glass light cover and turn anti-clockwise. I think the lamp then unscrews.
Replace lamp, turn on power and check if lamp lights up, replace cover twist clockwise to fasten.

It could be the oven element (behind the cover plate in the back of the oven), or the fan not blowing the heat into the oven.

Dacor ECD230 Sabbath Mode


You don't need to do anything special.

Quoting from Daco.com FAQ

"In our ovens, the cooling and convection fans do not turn off when the oven door opens. The lights also do not turn on. There is no timed shutoff on our ovens, either, meaning that once they are turned on, they will stay on until you manually turn them off. Both of these would be considered violations. Our ovens do not have a special Sabbath button because our ovens already adhere to the laws. When the oven door is opened, there are no changes to the control panel, which would also be a violation. It is best to wait for the small "On" light with the circle around it to go on before opening the oven door, though. This light indicates that the element has gone on, as the oven cycles on and off to maintain the selected temperature. Opening the oven door without this light going on may trigger the element to go on, which can be a violation."

Oven shuts down


My mother-in-law's oven was doing the same thing. At first it was actually turning completely off which led me to think it was a loose connection on the circuit board. That turned out to be exactly what it was. I had to dismantle the front of the oven, remove the circuit board, and resolder the connections. The first time I did this I must have missed a few bad joints and that's when it started doing what you described (shuting off and showing lock door). I pulled it back apart and found a few more bad solder joints which I fixed; so far so good. This is of course one of those "don't try this at home" fixes but it least lets you know what is causing the problem.
