Hi Our Westinghouse EW100SD oven

Hi

Our Westinghouse EW100SD oven has malfunctioned. It no longer operates on Bake or Fan Bake, there is no heat coming from the bottom element. Our unit has had 3 years of domestic use. The manual talks about a fuse however I can find no fuse after removing the top and back covers. I can see no signs of scorching or overheating in any of the wiring leading from the controls to the elements.
Can you please advise us?
We live in a remote location and casn not get service personel out to our place without spending a fortune on call out fees.

Thanks

SOURCE: Electric Oven not getting hot enough

Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.

1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two

SOURCE: ge spectra jbp64, replacement bottom bake element

Take the 2 screws out of the back wall of the oven (inside) holding the element on. Then pull the element out and it will expose the wires and terminals (2). Unplug the 2 wires and plug them on the new element and mount the element back in the oven and your fixed. (make sure to turn the power off to the oven before you start unpluging wires.

Please be careful - Be sure to remove all power from the unit.
The Black wires that go to the elements are not grounded, they have 115VAC on them so use great care.

This is what my JBP90 looks like viewed from the rear:

Top Element (Broil) has 2 wires - 1 BLACK on left, 1 RED on right
Center Element(Convection) has 3 wires - 2 BLACK on left, 1 BLUE on right
Bottom Element (Bake) has 3 wires - 2 BLACK on left, 1 Yellow on right

Good Luck!

SOURCE: GE JBP30 oven bottom element not working after being replaced

I would be looking at the bake relay on teh coven control board. Using a voltage meter test the output voltage when energizing the bake feature. Be sure to remove the bake element wire coming from the bake element to the control. Test this terminal without the bake element wire attached. From the terminal with one meter probe to the neutral on the terminal block (where your cord attaches to), you should read 110 volts when energized and 0 voltge when shut off. What are you reading? If I can help further, I am here.....

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric Campion

HEATS UP BUT TAKES 2 TIMES LONGER TO BAKE, tried cookies and cake, had to keep putting back in for longer. Did not burn, but had a weird consistency. Looked at baking coil, 'looks' fine and does get...


your bake element should get red during the preheat time and also if you leave the door open after it has preheated.
if it is not that will cause your oven to not heat right.
even if it looks ok, it could still be bad.
unplug the oven and remove the bake element, then take it to your local parts house and they can check it for you.
this is the most common problem, but it could be a problem with your oven control. try the element first.

Oven not heating up light ok fan ok


hi Lorraine. Thanks for choosing fixya! Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

GE Gas Range Over Won't Heat


Hello, Yes this is going to be the bake igniter. If you remove the lower panel in the oven you will see the bake igniter. It may still be working when you switch on the oven but it is not getting up to the correct temp in order to ignite the gas. Replace the igniter and you will be all set. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Good Luck! Mike

Broiler works but oven won't heat up


If you are having problems with the bake feature not lighting or taking longer than usual to ignite, you may have an oven igniter going bad. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

If your broil feature still works, you probably don't have a gas problem. The gas for both oven manifolds is fed through the same source. Barring a problem with the oven control board, you more than likely have an ignitor on the bake manifold failing or has become weak. The bake feature tends to fail more often due to the frequency of use.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

Electrolux built in wall oven, lights and digital display work fine, fan works fine, but the oven will not heat regardless of the mode (broil, bake, convention roast, convection bake)


Hello stevefer
Welcome.

You said, Your Electrolux built in wall oven, lights and digital display work fine, fan works fine, but the oven will not heat regardless of the mode (broil, bake, convention roast, convection bake)

First,
1.What is the Model Number and the year of your wall oven?
2.Did the oven light up and display with any error codes?
3. Did you try to turn the breaker off for 5 minutes to see if this will reset the system?

Perhaps the heating element is failing and may need to be replaced.
I will be able to better assist you when you reply with this information.
Waiting your response.
