Turbochef Tornado doesn't always heat food internally

you could have a problem with the microwave circuit. That would really be the only thing preventing the food from heating internally. I would call turbochef and call for warrenty service again. Is the bread comming out nice and toasty. If the blower for the convection circuit is weak or sticking this also cause the same effect of not properly cooked food.

So check microwave circuit and also check the blower.

Hope this helps if you need more in depth advice feel free to ask

Hotpoint uy46 style line stainless steel, 2 year old, main oven fan takes 20 to 25 mins to start then runs too slow and some times stops, but the heat element is glowing red and very hot

The symptoms you describe are an indication that the fan motor is in imminent danger of breaking down altogether.
You need to replace it as soon as possibe, otherwise you will end up with the element burning itself out, thus doubling the cost of repair.
Please rate my solution.

Hotpoint BD52 oven very slow to heat up

You may have one leg of power that is out. First turn off the breakers, then back on. Check it to see if it is better. Then check the wiring from the receptacle, to the plug, to the back of the oven. Look inside the back of it and see if you see any fuses. They could be blown as well. If you are getting some heat (red) then it is an indication of a wiring or fuse problem. Now, one last thought here, if you turn it to high heat does it heat up faster? This one lead it to be in the control switch. Let me know how you do.

Hotpoint ew83p oven has no heat

The oven fan element has failed, you need to fit a new one.

Remove inner rear panel of oven and you will see the round element at rear.Unscew screw(s) that secure element, disconnect leads, and fit new element.
Refit element cover.
Job done..
Make sure you have power off to oven before you start.
Plz rate my solution.
