Sounds like a thermal overload has opened up during clean. It may be mounted on the back.

    SOURCE: fan oven on zanussi electric cooker does not heat up

    From symptons, I would say the fan oven element is faulty, more so if the fan is working. Remove inner rear panel of oven and see if element gets warm, let it run for a minute, switch off and feel if element is warm, if not, then replace.the element.
    Plz rate this solution.

    My oven is not heating up properly, it either doesn't heat up or it takes a very long time to heat up. The range top works fine and the broiler works, but when i set it to bake it doesn't or takes long.

    There are two possibilities for problems with the range. If it has a "timed bake" setting for the oven then it's possible that the last person who used it neglected to return the setting to the manual mode. In "timed bake" mode, the oven will heat to approx. 160 - 185 degrees, what is called a "keep warm" temp. It will maintain that heat setting regardless of what you set the oven temp control to, as long as you're not in the time frame that it's set to bake. This will make trying to bake anything a very difficult procedure.
    The second possibility is that the oven glo coil igniter is cracked and will not heat to the proper temp to allow the electricity to flow through it to the oven gas safety valve to allow it to open and let the gas flow to the burner. These things are ceramic and for some reason crack in normal use. If it has a top broiler, that unit is obviously good. Unfortunately, the igniters are seldom interchangeable. You would need a tech to check the igniter with an ohmmeter.

    My GE Profile electric oven keeps shutting off on me, it shows a "F3" code on the screen. What does this mean?

    Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

    your F3 means: Oven temperature sensor open you cannot reset this type of problem.

    Check oven temperature sensor, should be ~1100 ohms at room temperature. If too high or low, replace oven temperature sensor

    F2 low temp

    The most common probem is burned wires going to the heater on the top of the oven cavity. Typically you will see the coating on the wire close to the heater all cracked and bare. You can usually just cut the wire back an inch and pull some slack up and reconnect the wire and you will be good. In some cases the wire will be burned to much and the whole wire will need to be changed. Any oven repair shop will sell you these high temp wires. DO NOT use regular wires they MUST be high temp rated.

    Here is some other things to check if the heater wires look good.

    IR Element
    The IR element - a dual coil type heater - is located
    in the bottom of the oven cavity. The first coil is the
    heating coil. The second is the IR thermocouple
    wire. The heating coil outputs 3000 watts at 208
    VAC. The heating coil's resistance is 14.4 ohms at
    room temperature.
    The thermocouple coil is a Type K thermocouple
    with a resistance of approximately 20 ohms at the
    splices located approximately 6 inches from the
    heater and 40 ohms measured at the extension wires
    at the I/O control board.
    The IR element is controlled via the K5 solid state
    relay and the IR thermocouple via the I/O control

    Also try this

    1. Verify the high-limit thermostat is not tripped.
    o If high-limit is tripped, reset and allow the oven to warm up.
    o If high-limit is not tripped, follow the instructions below.
    High-limit thermostat is not tripped.
    Place a small water load in a microwave/heat-resistant container
    (approx. 275 ml) in the oven and place the oven in TEST MODE. Press
    the MGTRON key to actuate the microwave. While holding down the
    MGTRON key, watch the CC and IR temperatures. If either temperature
    bounces substantially, there may be a noise (EMI) problem.
    To correct this problem, examine the wire routing for each
    thermocouple wire. If the wires are routed near any high voltage
    components such as the magnetron or high voltage transformers, reroute
    the wires. If this does not correct the problem, verify that both
    magnetrons are securely mounted.

    Good Luck

    Oven appears to start, takes forever to preheat,

    This is what I would do: I would unplug the range and connect my test cord to your range cord. I use an ammeter along with my test cord to read the amp draw of the bake ignitor. If it cannot get above 3.5 amps I know the ignitor is bad or weak. Since the oven is working that means there is a good circuit. In order for the safety bi-metal to open the amp draw must reach 3.5 amps or better. So to me I am thinking bad ignitor. To get to it I remove the door oven racks and bottom, I then remove the flame spreader and unplug the quick connect to the ignitor. I remove the burner and ignitor and replace the ignitor on a work bench. I am too old to be bending over and trying to do any parts replacement inside an oven. LOL. I have a training film which shows how the silicone carbide ignitor works HERE. Post a model number and I may have a service manual, do not forget to rate the answer.

    Burner heats to high even when set on low

    Are you talking about the cook-top part of this unit or the interior of the oven? If it's the top part, your infinite switch is out. If it's the interior, it's one of the elememts. If you will give us a call as soon as you get a chance, we'll make sure and get the correct part out to you right away to get this repaired. We look forward to working with you and getting your oven fixed BEFORE Thanksgiving. 972-859-0929

    Hi, it looks like the main oven stat is faulty (the part behind the temperature control knob with the long capillary inside the oven). If it's overheating, then the stat is not switching off the element, hence the high temp. It needs replacing.

    Whirlpool Double Oven RBD305 Display doesn't show, oven wont work

    Most definitely a bad control board and/or soldered components. (The part about cutting power to the oven was a dead giveaway)
    There are low and high temperature solders, but usually solder melts at 370° F. If the oven is improperly insulated or ventilated you will have continued heat stress to the control board.
