Yes you may have a loose wire that is trying to make contact. If no loose wire found the control is bad. Replace this and you will be fine to go. Fix before shorts out other switches.

I have a Bush AE56DA electric oven, the main oven has stopped heating up. Also the oven light and thermostat light have stopped working. Everything else works fine. Any idea's? Thanks.


This sounds like a regulator problem, now there are the switch or a built in behind the cooker. WARNING DO NOT OPEN ANY PART OF THE OVEN ISOLATE THE MAINS FIRST.
You will need a tester, multi-meter would do. check the switch for continuity check the heating element there may be a hole in it, its very difficult to see slight Gray Colour just at the hole, find and inspect the fan motor if there is no continuity after disconnection of wiring between the winding terminals, on most models you have to remove the fan before you can inspect the heating element, but there are a few the other way round. Hope this is helpful .

Regards
John

Oven isn't heating


I assume this is an electric oven...
Most likely cause is the element - this can fairly easily be replaced.
The next cause could be a defective thermostat - behind the heat control knob.
The next is the cut-out, which senses the heat in the oven and stops it overheating completely.
Only an experienced technician should replace parts in an oven so if you are not competent, please contact your local repair shop.

Smeg oven UK80MFX1 troubleshooting


This tutorial will show you how to check your Smeg element and how to replace your Smeg cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
  1. Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Smeg manual.
  2. If your Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
  3. When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.

I have just replaced the fan for this oven as it had stopped spinning. However it appears not to be the fan that has broken as the new one behaves the same. One important obserbvation is that when you...


Strange one this. According to the wiring and circuit diagrams, the yellow wire from the fan should go to contact 4 on the main oven switch. The oven element is connected to the thermostat, which in turn is connected to contact 3 on the oven switch. When the oven is on the handbook says that contacts 1,3 and 4 are made, contact 1 being the oven lights. So if the lights come on and the fan turns, the switch is more or less working. The only other thing that overrides the oven element is the thermal cutout. If you still have the problem, let me know what the thermostat neon is doing in all of this. It will be interesting to see what this is doing. Also, if you want the handbook which includes the diagrams, post your email address and I will send you a pdf copy.

Bottom oven is not working even though the top one is 720EF model


When you turn the bottom oven on, does the fan start to run in the oven? Do the oven lights come on? Does the main cooling fan switch on? Does the oven control knob illuminate? Does the thermostat neon illuminate?
As a guide, the power/control for the bottom oven is via the main switch on the front panel. Power then goes from the switch through the thermostat to the the oven/element/fan. The lights go direct from the switch.
I hope this helps.

How does the power level work in conjunction with the Thermostat? does the power goe through the Stat first or the power level.


Hello. These two areas within your oven operate on two separate systems because they operate on very different voltage needs and thus very different size wire. The thermostat is right behind the knob you use to set the oven baking temperature. There's a long, thin copper tube attached to this knob that leads into the oven compartment. It senses the temperature inside the oven and signals the thermostat to provide or prevent further heating. There's another type of thermostat--an electronic/mechanical hybrid unit--that has a small electronic circuit board behind the knob. It has a sensor attached to it--about the size of a 4- to 6-inch pencil, that protrudes into the oven. When the oven reaches the temperature you set, the sensor signals the circuit board, which turns off the electric burner(s) in the oven.

XL 44 Gas Range Oven temperature problem


hi If the oven doesn't heat evenly or doesn't heat at all, the oven thermostat may be malfunctioning. First, determine how much the temperature in the oven is off from the control setting. To do this, put an oven thermometer on a center rack inside the oven and turn the oven on for about 20 minutes, with the thermostat set at any range between 300 degrees and 400 degrees Farenheit. If the oven thermometer reads 25 degrees or more lower or higher than the oven control setting, the thermostat should be recalibrated. Here's how to calibrate the thermostat:

Step 1: Pull off the thermostat knob on the control panel. Behind the knob are two screws holding a round, notched plate. Loosen these screws, but do not remove them.

Step 2: With a screwdriver, change the notch setting on the notched plate by turning the plate counterclockwise; for every eighth of a turn, the oven temperature goes up about 25 degrees Farenheit. To turn the heat down, turn the plate clockwise.

Some thermostats can be adjusted by turning a screw inside the control knob shaft housing. To do so, remove the knob and insert a screwdriver into the shaft so that the screwdriver blade engages a screw slot. Turn the screwdriver counterclockwise about one-eighth of a turn to raise the heat about 
25 degrees Farenheit. Here's how to test a malfunctioning thermostat:

Step 1: Test the thermostat with a VOM (multimeter) set to the RX1 scale. The thermostat is located directly on the back of the control knob that regulates the heat. To gain access to the thermostat, remove the back service panel to the control panel.

Step 2: Disconnect one electrical lead wire from a terminal of the thermostat and clip one probe of the VOM to each thermostat terminal. If the thermostat is in working order, the meter will register zero. If the needle jumps to a higher reading, the thermostat is faulty and should be replaced.

Step 3: If necessary, replace the thermostat with a new one of the same type.

If you need to replace the thermostat, follow these guidlines:

Step 1: Disconnect the terminal wires to the thermostat and pull off the control knob.

Step 2: Remove the retaining screws. On some ranges, there is a wire running from the thermostat into the oven. This wire operates a sensing bulb that controls the thermostat. The sensing bulb is usually held by a bracket; unscrew this bracket to remove the bulb. Then carefully slip out the wire, the bulb, and the thermostat.

Step 3: Install the new thermostat using a reverse procedure.

Temp display shows 444


If everything on your B1691N0GB oven seems to be working, i.e. all the lights are on and fan comes on in fan oven setting, but there is no heat from fan oven, conventional oven or grill, try turning your oven off at the mains, then turn on again. If the temperature display then shows 444, your oven is locked. To unlock, make sure the central control knob is in the "out" position, then press the fan oven and light buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds or so, until 333 appears on the display. Your oven is now unlocked.
