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!

Have just moved from UK and we don't have broil and bake on our ovens - what do they mean/what's the difference as I've been cooking garlic bread on bake but it's taking twice as long to cook?


Hi,
The broil is the top element and the bake is the bottom element...so with broil you are heating from the top and with bake you are heating from the bottom...if your oven has a fan, turn that on with a bake setting and it will speed up the process..

Baking on two racks - whenever I try to bake cookies on top and bottom racks, the lower tray does not bake anywhere NEAR as quickly....should I be able to bake evenly on up and down racks?


Hi,
Two racks never bake as evenly as one unless you use the fan inside the oven if you have one...The fan will also shorten the baking times...
The other thing that I would check is to make sure that the lower element in your oven is not blown and you are heating with the top element only...

Either the temperature sensor has a problem (shorted so the control thinks the oven is colder than the actual temp) or a relay feeding the bake or broil element is welded shut and causing one of the elements to stay on. If the elements are still heating when the "ON" indicator is NOT lit, then you have a welded relay. You need the control board repaired.

Dacor Oven - convection fan stays on while on "bake" setting


Question: does the unit appear to hold the correct temperature? Most convection units only turn the heating elements on and off...not the fan. If the unit is reporting operating temp and then taking other direction...and it is cooking right...you're done.
