This could be a thermostat issue or a burner issue. Most ovens have a top and bottom burner, if one of them is not working, the oven may not reach or stay at the right temperature. You should be able to get a replacement at home stores that sell appliances or order one online. They are fairly easy to replace. You may have to remove a couple of screws but otherwise they pop out and pop in. You can test the burners by turning the oven on bake and a few minutes later open the oven to see if the bottom burner is red, if not it may be burnt out. You can set the oven to broil and after a few minutes, look at the top burner, if it's not red it's likely burnt out. If both burners seem to be working, it is likely a thermostat issue. I haven't replaced one of them before, but you should be able to find instructions on youtube to determine if it is something you are comfortable replacing on your on.

My Electrolux double oven goes from "bake" to "warm oven " after about 1 hour. I try to use the other oven and it will go start to "warm oven"


is the bake element getting hot?when you put the oven on bake both the broil and bake elements come on,if just the broil element is getting hot it might take it an hour to heat up.you might just have a bad bake element,if the bake element isn't hidden does is turn red? if not it's not getting hot.

Defy slimline eyelevel oven installed in cupboard.


Assuming it is an electric built in or built under oven, these are commonly fitted into a dedicated cupboard (oven housing) that matches the other kitchen units and typically little or no facility for ventilation is provided.
Electric ovens are usually so well insulated and covered with reflective foil the need for ventilation is minimal, especially when a standard size oven is fitted into the correct standard sized housing as it will provide an air-space of an inch or more all around.

It can be expected the housing near the top of the oven will become warm after a while and the shelf above likely to become warm enough to soften a candle but if it gets hot enough to actually melt a candle I think that is rather too hot. The addition of additional insulation and reflective material should improve matters greatly.

I suggest you approach the guy who fitted the oven if it was professionally fitted. It would have been his responsibility to only fit a suitable appliance and if additional ventilation was required he should have advised you.

I believe I have seen some oven housings with a slim grille over the oven and it is probable there would have also been a slot cut at the rear and perhaps a short piece of trunking to carry warm air away from the space directly above the oven.

Oven not getting hot


I would recommend checking the circuit breakers, assuming that there is a 230 volt supply for the heater elements. If that is OK you might have a bad heater element.

My GE oven heating element heats red hot no matter what temp I put the oven on


Something is probobly wrong with the thermostat, it gets hot to warm up, but should lessen as it reaches your desired temp. If the thermostat is bad it will just keep going.

start by checking your input power for a full 240volts,then check the terminal block for any burned off power input wires,then check power connections all the way thru the oven control and finally check for "hot-spots" in both elements(highly unlikely that both would be bad) its a discolored area that is a high resistance area not passing full operating power thru element(s)

Oven getting warm but not hot?


If it is an electric fan assisted oven, and the fan is working o/k, \then you need to fit a new oven element., usually located at rear of oven compartment.

Simpson 2001 series upright electric stove oven does not get hot only gets warm


It could be the oven element (behind the cover plate in the back of the oven), or the fan not blowing the heat into the oven.
