I have a Bakers Pride Model P-44S and the top oven doesn't turn on. The bottom one works fine but the top one does not heat and the light does not turn on. What can the problem be?

    This is a dual-oven and they are seperate in its own - this is not a standard conventional oven for the home.



    The bottom one works fine but the top one doesn't work. What can I do to fix the top oven?

  • Andre Sep 05, 2009

    Please let me know what I can do to fix the top portion of the oven.

  • Andre Sep 05, 2009

    I am not near the unit I have to wait until the store is closed. Where are the fuses in back of the unit? Do I need to take anything apart?

  • Andre Sep 05, 2009

    The link to the manual is http://www.bakerspride.com/manuals/Parts.... Is it part #15 M1330A?

  • Andre Sep 05, 2009

    I have a volt meter but I am not sure what I would need to do. If you can walk me through it, I can follow it very closely/carefully. Please let me know.

  • Andre Sep 05, 2009

    Also, I don't know if this helps identify the problem but when the oven is turned on, a red light turns on indicating that the oven is on and is heating. When the temperature inside the oven is reached, the light turns off and only turns on when it turns on to heat it up to reach the desired temperature. Since the two ovens are seperate, the bottom one is operating perfectly - the light turns on and heats. The top one however, the light does not turn on nor does it heat. Isn't this a good indicator that it is the thermostat since it is not letting the unit know to turn on?

    I think that model has some 'screw in fuses' on the back that don't require dis assembly to access.

  • Craig Butler
    Craig Butler Sep 05, 2009

    This does not show any fuses at all. I'm a bit surprised. Anyway, it looks like a rather straight forward oven. The usual stuff, elements and thermostats. Both of which need to be checked first. Do yo think you have the skills to check them? Do you know how to use/have a volt/ohm meter? I can walk you through it...

  • Craig Butler
    Craig Butler Sep 05, 2009

    Yes, I would want you to ohm the element. Remove the machine from power.


    • Expose the back of the machine to access the element.

    • Put meter in 'Ohms' scale (resistance Rx1 scale)

    • Touch leads to the ends of the element (remove one wire on either side)

    • Read ohms, should be around 45-50 ohms if good.
    Start with that, that's your home work for tonight. Then, if that's good we check the thermostat.



    1. This is WITH POWER ON BE careful, turn power on only when ready to test:

    2. With the element connected and hooked up, turn power on and turn thermostat to high.

    3. Put volt meter on AC volts

    4. Touch leads to element ends and read voltage.

    5. If it's a 208 volt system, should read 208-210 volts AC

    6. If it's a 240 volts system it should read 220-240 volts AC.

    Not necessarily, it almost sounds like there is no power getting to the unit. If you can open the back and get with me, send me a close up photo would help and I can help you find it.

  • Craig Butler
    Craig Butler Sep 05, 2009

    You may try to open the front where the oven controls are and we could check power at the control thermostat and that may be it.

  • Craig Butler
    Craig Butler Sep 05, 2009

    What about the little circut breaker on the front? Are they reset?

  • Craig Butler
    Craig Butler Sep 05, 2009

    There should be a schematic diagram on the back of the oven. Take a close up of that too.
    Send photos to ' protek@bresnan.net '

    I see there is a timer involved here too. We just need to focus on this with a meter and we can find it.

Hi there,

most electric ovens have two elements.

in baking, the bottom element is used to maintain oven heat for to cook your food.
in broiling, the top element provides direct radiant heat to cook your food.
now the catch: most ovens will use BOTH elements at once to bring the oven up to temperature, when you first turn it on to bake something. once the oven is up to temperature, the top oven turns off, and doesn't turn back on.

here's two tests to do:
turn your oven to bake, and check in about one minute to see if the top element is on. if it is, your oven has a normal automatic preheat cycle.
turn your oven to broil, and watch to see if the top element heats up. if it does not, then there is a problem.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Why only one side of oven burner will stay lighted fgf326asf


normally you have three types of baking methods.
1. Top only
2. Bottom only
3. Both. -use the setting to this configuration then you will be good to go.

OR
Only one part of your oven is working. THIS can NOT be due to a circuit issue. The other heating wire might be probably damaged. Get it replaced. Will cost you very less about USD5-10.

I have had a P-44 oven in an Auntie Anne's Pretzels shop for 15 years. It has been connected to a 4-wire, double-breaker circuit. I ordered a new P-44 through Auntie Anne's and thought it would be...


hi...since the specification of your new oven is 208v 1-phase and since voltage rating on your receptacle or outlet s only 120v..it would be advisable for you to purchase an INVERTER, it is a step-up transformer that converts 120v to 220 v..in that way you can supply your oven according to its specification..thanks..

Needs a new safety switch, discontinued part.Any suggetsions?


Take out the part and note any markings and numbers on the switch, you may be able to source one from somewhere else if it isn't Bakers Pride specific, also go to an electronics parts store with the switch , they may be able to adapt something or may have something similar.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Oven wont light, pilot is lite but the burners wont ignight


Bakers Pride used several different safety valves over the years. If your oven has a pilot valve that has a beige know that you hold in and turn to light the pilot, then after it lights you need to turn the beige know another half round to the "on" setting. If you push in a red button to light the pilot, it may not be getting enough heat on the thermocouple where the pilot flame should be heating it up. Be sure the main gas valve on the front of the oven is turned to the on position also. On some models the pilot will light with the main gas valve in the off position. If you look at the pilot flame while it is burning, make sure that it is hitting the pencil sized thermopile enough to make it glow red. If not bend it slightly to improve the heating.
