How do I turn the oven grill on

various ovens have different methods to turn on the broil element, assuming this is what you actually mean by 'grill'. Helpful information would be : Manufacturer name, model number, heat source (gas or electric), and as many details as you can supply. As stated, your question leaves much to be desired.

Oven light stays on all the time even when oven off.

Does your oven have a switch on the front panel for "oven light" or "light" ? If so, pushing it may turn the light on and off. Also, there may be a pushbutton on the oven's front edge where the door fits. The button comes out when the door is open and turns the light on. If you have one of those, the switch could be broken or defective. If the button is missing or damaged, it could leave the light on all the time.

Oven was on and all of a sudden I saw flashes of light coming from oven? turned off oven and now oven randomly turns itself on

Does not sound good,

does it give you a error code at all?

the flashes of light sound like a heating element problem, and as far as it turning on itself thats a control issue, I would leave it unplugged for safety reasons.

I am trying to see if I can find some information online about this particular oven.

Build a pizza oven in the back yard

All you need is bricks and cement.
Use perforated bricks or regular 65mm bricks for the support. A light oven may be built on an U shaped support (you will need to make some structural considerations about the weight). Moreover the U shaped support on top requires an armed concrete slab adequate to support the chamber. If you are not sure about structural performance, build a solid support block of bricks.
Make sure that the support is adequate for the weight of the heavy chamber. If the oven is big, then lay basic foundations or build the oven straight on the ground.
For the chamber you must use refractory bricks (fire bricks). You have different choices of design. A common shaped that do not require armed concrete parts is the igloo style chamber. Leave space for the chimney on top of the chamber.

I just cleaned by hand by magic chef wall oven and now I can't

Pilotless ignition means that a hot surface ignitor lights the oven burner. It does take a little bit of time to light the burner. Maybe 30 seconds. If you want to make sure it lights take the bottom panel out from the oven and observe the hot surface glow and the burners light. No real danger as the gas valve will only open after the hot surface ignitor has satisfied the gas valve. Let me know how it goes. ken

Aeg single oven

You need to reset the timer to manual from auto , that is why your oven won't come on.
Refer to your user manual on how to do this.I can't tell you how as the sequence differs from model to model.
Plz leave feed back for this solution.

Frigidaire oven overheating

I would say that the oven thermostat is malfunctioning, and you will probably need a new one fitting.
Make sure the sensor inside the oven has not become detached, as this will make a differance.
Plz leave feedback.
