SOURCE: From "bake" mode, oven door locked, both heating elements on.

The F3 E2 error code indicates that the electronic oven control board in the range senses an over-temperature condition in the oven.

This can be caused by a failed temperature sensor probe, a wiring problem between the sensor and the control board, or a failed electronic oven control board.
If the oven is apparently not overheating when this error code appears, then your likely failure is the temperature sensor probe.
If the oven is overheating, then you likely have a failed electronic oven control board due to a stuck relay not cycling the oven heating element off properly.

SOURCE: trying to find a bake

Hello,
I have found the part # for it it's 5300207851 however searching all my parts supply houses that i normally use they say it's no longer available. Perhaps it may take some searching on your part but having the part number will possibly help you find it. Their is some places that restore vintage appliance and info on them could be found by a google search for vintage appliances and perhaps they may have one they need to knock a ton of dust off of and ship to you.

Good luck,
Gene

When baking when oven gets to temperature, and you open the door to put food in The grill comes on and burns everything. I use the middle of the oven, but it still happens. Any suggestions.


Not sure how your oven works, but older ones had a "pre-heat" setting that you would use to get the oven to temp. This ran both the upper (broiler/grill) and lower elements at the same time to raise the heat quickly to temp. Once the oven is pre-heated, you would switch the selector to "bake" and that would only allow the lower element to work after that. If you failed to remove it from "pre-heat", it would use both and burn the food. Just saying.

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

There's no heat from my Westinghouse Oven(pol662s). The grill, fan & light all operate correctly, just the oven. I'm guessing it's either a thermostat or element problem. If it's a...


One quick test would be to turn on the bake and shake the element a little. Sometimes the connection burns loose and by shaking the element you may breefly make connection and there would be a little heat. If that does not work you would have to take the element out and check continuity. (Turn the power off!) Next you need to trace the wiring. If you have an old mechanical thermostat you could have a burnt terminal. I forgot, first make sure you have 240 Volt going to the oven. Fans, clocks, lights will work on 120 V. but elements need 240 V.

I need the bottom heating element in an old westinghouse wall oven. the model # is OG25HXO


I am not certain what geographic region you are in but... Bake elements are often generic between brands. The key is to match up voltage, wattage, size, bends and terminals. Here are 2 pages of westing house elements:

http://www.partselect.com/PartSearchWizard.aspx?Appliance=Range+%2f+Stove+%2f+Oven&Brand=Westinghouse&PartType=Element+or+Burner&Electrical=Yes

I tried searching using OG25HXO with little success even on westinghouse sites US and AU.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Bottom element doesnt work in oven, but top does.


NOPE!
  1. Broil element does not have welded-on legs and will touch the bottom of oven, overheating itself and will end up the same way your bake element did; besides, the bottom of the oven will corrode pretty quick
  2. Many ovens use both elements during bake cycle
  3. self clean cycle uses broil element
  4. The bake and broil elements typically have different mounting brackets and screw holes ate in different places
  5. you'd have to cover the hole, left after removing the broil element, and insulate the wires, which went to broil element
  6. the ends, protruding behind the mounting bracket may have different length and different connectors. you may end up shorting the wiring to the casing, which may in turn destroy the control board if there is one
  7. Bake elements usually cost only $40-$60. No jury rigging required.
Hope this helps ;)
Good luck!

Wont heat past 200 degres


When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

Err on display when I try to set the bake temperature


Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.
or try doing this
1. Turn the clock selector knob to OFF
2. “Tweak” the oven control by turning the clock selector knob slightly to the left (counter clockwise). This may stop the flashing message/beeping and clear the display window.

Foil baked onto oven base.


Unfortunately, it's too late. The tin foil has melted into the panel and can't be removed. You should never place anything on the bottom of a stove that has a hidden element. You will damage the panel. Oven operation is not affected. The only option you have is to replace the panel or the entire oven liner...
