Need help with wiring a switch on Westinghouse Stove model BD-74.

I have the switch, but the repairman was unwilling to install it because the wiring diagram on the back of the stove was unclear. He did install another switch which works.

SOURCE: I need to change my oven ignitor and I need a diagram

Here's a diagram of the oven along with the Oven Ignitor (Part #19 on the diagram) and the Broiler Ignitor, (Part #26 on the diagram). They are located behind the gas deflectors located at the top and bottom inside the oven compartment, accessible from inside the oven, but you'll need to remove the rear panel at the outside back of the stove to disconnect the terminals tha supply voltage to the ignitors.

Be sure to turn the breaker off and/or unplug the range from the 220V-AC outlet first.

Hope this helps you complete your repair. Best Regards!

Westinghouse 668w


Sounds like you are only getting half the power to your stove, first check your breaker for the stove,turn it off and then on again,one side off the breaker may not be making a good connection giving you only 110v instead of 220v which is why you will have lights and no heat. If that does not solve the problem and you are comfortable working with electricity shut off the breaker, unplug the stove and remove rear access panel where the cord goes into the back off the stove and make sure all 3/4 wires are securely connected, that being done and it still does not work you may have a bad breaker or connection in box or a faulty outlet.

My ariston oven won't turn on. The stove works and


check and see if the broil works in the oven ,2 if it turns on meaning the element in the top turns red then this generaly means both side of the switch are good. and you need to replace the element on the bottom of the stove.now turn off the stove .1st unplug the stove. 2nd there are 2 screws at the back of the stove on a metal plate which is attached to the element take them off.3rd gently pull out the element about 3 inches until you see 2 wires. there are 2 ways the wires could be connected either push on or by screws if you dont see a screw abviusly its push on. just grab the end of the wire ON the connecter and grab the elemnt at the connecter and wigglethe connector back and forth while pullin on the connecter. wala. now locate the model number and go to amazon.com or your local parts house and install in reverse

The oven door has disengaged at the hinge I cannot get back into the slot on the stove westinghouse


Hi You cant do this without taking the door off the oven this is a 2 person job when it has disengaged There is a wire clip on the bottom of the K type hinge that hooks on to the top of the hinge if you can get them to hook together you can then remove the door You need to do this to both hinges lay it flat get the 2 hinges hooked together put the door back in the oven and release the hook the hook also looks like a flat u shaped bracket it depends on which westinghouse stove you are talking about as to where it is located mostly it is very close to the oven itself Regards Geoff Stove Recyclers

I have a Simpson electric oven with stove top elements, and one of the burners will only cook at the highest level, I cant figure out how to change it, any suggestions?


You need to change the "Simmerstat", take the model number to your local electrical parts supplier/parts counter at your local stove retail shop that sells Simpson stoves and ask for one for that model, make sure you get the right one for the position as some control a single element and some control dual elements.

*** TURN OFF THE WALL SWITCH AND ENSURE NO POWER IS APPLIED TO THE STOVE BEFORE PROCEEDING ****
Remove the upper back panel of the stove. Swap wire for wire of the old simmerstat to the new one, remove the knob from the old Simmerstat, undo the nut securing the simmerstat in the oven control panel and discard, fit new one, secure, fit knob, fit back panel, turn on wall switch and test.

Some countrys/states require registered electricians perform this task on electrical appliances so you must ensure you can do this legally before you start and take the relevant safety precautions and don't electrocute yourself.

Hi , i am an electrician installing a westinghouse pek1380w-r stove , my mate that bought the stove is still waiting for the manual and cannot tell me how many amps the stove will draw so i can select a...


this unit will draw up to 50 amps if all burners are operating. i do not know the exact wattage, but they usually have an 8 gauge wiring connector already on the oven, if a wall oven.
if a free standing then you will have to put on a cord that will also be an 8 gauge.
you will need to determine what wire gauge to use depending on how long of a run you have from the circuit panel to carry the load.
it is also a single phase 240 volt system, but that doesnt matter because the wires are the same.
are you new at being an electrician? check your code book to make sure you are doing this wiring by the codes for your area.

Problem gas cooker


Go on line to westing house.com and look up your model, go to the help page and ask for their assistance, gas is not something to fool around with, I suspect it is the orifice that have not been converted to propane, I had a similar problenm with the stove top burners, and the orifices needed to be changed to (converted ) to run on propane gas.Some times manufactures send the converter orfices but most of the time you have to ask for them if you are running on propane, most stoves are set up for natural gas not propane.Most of the time the store clerks don't ask you if you will be running on propane , you have to tell them and the professional who installs the unit needs to install the orifices. Please be careful! If you installed the stove your self, you need to contact a professional installer to correctly adjust these .

F 10 Error code


I was unable to find an F10 fault code for the model you provided.
Have you checked your users manual?
Below is a link to most manufacturers fault codes. It also provides links for parts and exploded view diagrams.
It appears that your model was made by Westinghouse but their F codes only went to F8.
