Hi,
If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...
Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..

SOURCE: 2000 nissan sentra stops running while driving...

Hello, I will try to point you in a direction from reading the symptoms. What I would like you to do is time the amount of elapsed time between starting the car and when it quits. Your problem may be that a running interval on the Cold start is all the Engine Management stuff you have working in the car. Some of the controls are on a timer.

If there does seem to be a timer involved, then a Repair Manual should state what device takes over after a certain time interval elapses. That part that follows the Cold start sequence would then be the defective part.

Your car could also have a Thermal switch. This would be harder to pinpoint as the base Temperature would be different each time the Weather changes. However, a Repair Manual may indicate that once the car heats up to "X" degrees, a second computer control senses the water or air temperature and takes over the Engine management from there. Then it would be this unknown part that is your problem.

I Service mostly Ford family Brands. But I confess that I once owned a Pontiac and the module went bad similar to your car. It would run for a fixed time period and then die. It would not matter if it was in Park, Neutral, or Drive. After maybe 30 or so seconds it stopped. Would start right back up and run another 30 seconds.

Found out it was a bad Distributor module and that it had a timer. Once the Cold start routine of 30 seconds ended, it stalled. I do not claim to know anything about a Nissan, but a timer and a Temperature sensor would be 2 areas to check. I hope this helps you.

Tumble Dryer intermittent squeal, then stopped heating, now black soot underneath


Dryers are susceptible to lint fires in their exhaust vents. You should be checking the exhaust vent at least once a year and clearing any blockages. If the exhaust vent becomes blocked, the dryer will heat up significantly and the lint could catch fire if there is enough heat build-up. If you don't clear the exhaust this will almost certainly happen.


Fire needs a source of heat (red hot heating elements), fuel (lint) and oxygen (the exhaust fan blows air at the blockage).


You should be able to replace the burned out heating element if you are comfortable doing the wiring. You can pay a repairman if you like but wiring is only so much common sense. Photograph the wiring before you start for a post repair check. Replace the element and any burned wires. Make sure the connections are tight and that there are no loose wires. Only the ground wire should be bare.

A Dryer uses 220V AC (in North America) like a stove and some water heaters. This is enough voltage to kill even hardy souls who laugh at 110V (usually enough to kill but not guaranteed to).

When you check the vent, check that it has some sort of safety rating. Not all flexible vent is fire-resistant. This scared me when I saw it on YouTube or somewhere.

Why did your smoke detector not go off when the element melted?Good thing to know if your utility charges less for power in off-peak hours. My mother often runs hers at night when the rate is very low.

My dryer runs from sunrise to sunset but we use an electric one in the winter months.

Heater works fine when its turned on but stops blowing heat after 3 mins.


mine just did the exact thing. I took it apart and blew it out with an air chuck and it works like new again. a couple of weeks ago i used a vaccum and it work a couple of days and then did it again. The squirrel cage and heat elements were filled with dust. It was not easy taking apart but now i know to only take the bottom off. thanks

Car keeps stalling out along with reduced power and check engine


you did not id what year/make/model but it sounds a lot like a typical failure of the MAP

however, depending on your year/make/model the code could also be a sign of an power concern to your PCM, (powertrain control module) aka computer

Hi need a manual for a select 920 diplomat oven


I have a Hygena 920 twin oven and grill .The electrical element in the grill started to droop several months ago, now it has stopped working . the element has burnt through. Could this have caused a fire?
I should like to know if it is possible to get a spare element and fit it myself. What would be the cost of the element? Thanking you in anticipation.
