Bosch oven cooling fan is continuously on at the same speed and is on always no matter what the temperature is. Upper heating element does not turn red hot in broil mode.

The oven has internal fan at back of oven encircling the element that should get reshot when stat turned up high. Also there is cooling fan under lid to keep the wiring area cool.This should stay on for around ten - fifteen minutes after cooking finished. David "The Famous Forry"

Westinghouse 662 Oven temp is wrong, by about 100 degree's.

would check to make sure both your broil and bake ignitors are working. On some, but not all, both come on to preheat, and then the broil shuts off. Another, and more likely culprit would be the temperature sensor located in the oven itself. Its the silverish metal rod protruding from the back wall inside the oven. It could be bad and not converting heat/elsectrical signal properly causing the main control to regulate the temperature incorrectly.If the sensor you are talking about is the oven temperature sensor than its just as easy, since you are behind the machine already, to take off the back panal, unplug the sensor and measure resistance there. Either way the resistance should read around 1099-1100 ohms.even a small margine off can cause a major temperature difference.

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.

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.

Oven temperature fisher paykel

benypeny what that flash was from what I have seen over the years is your heating element on the back wall burning out. Remove the cover and you will see the element is no longer in 1 piece.
