Hello,
This could be that the replacement element is a higher wattage than the original but the thermostat should control this so check that the thermostat has not been put back in the wrong position in the oven.

Hope this helped.

The bake element (in over) will no longer get hot, should the element itself be replace or could it be something else? Range model RS675PXEQ0


It does sound like the bake element is probably the problem. Many ovens turn on the broil element with 120 volts to even out the heat in the oven or pulse the broil element. This may be why the oven is warm but not baking.

Oven will not heat


GE Oven: If it only gets warm, it is not getting 220 volts. It may only be getting 110 volts. First check your breaker (double pole) and reset it manually. Since it is an older oven, there may be a break in one of the wires or connections. A voltmeter will indicate just how much current you have. Be careful.

Oven elements warm but do not get hot.


whats the resistance on the elements, how many watts are they?

make sure all wires are good, could have one broke about half way. you will need to check the resistance on the elements. you need to actually check the volts and use whats its closer to 240/220 you will have to find out the ohms so you know the element will get hot. if all the wiring is good start with the elements, you need w/v will tell you the amps. e/i will give you ohms, just use the equations in the pic to figure out what you need to know. it as to have enough resistance to get hot

When using the oven the electicity tripped; after resetting the breaker the oven does not appear to get hot; however the grill works, the light works and the fan works what could be the problem?


Sounds like the oven element has gone. When these elements go they often short against the outside casing of the element which is earthed (or should be). This trips the main trip switch in the house. Having tripped and cooled down, the element is now broken inside & won't heat up. Usually 2 screws to remove, either inside oven or outside at back. Element usually taken out thro oven. Take it & cooker info to your dealer & ask for replacement. Shouldn't cost much.

Hi, I only just installed Baumatic single built in fan oven (B0616SS). I did as instructed and left on for 39 - 40 minutes at max 250 temp. I noticed that the oven door was very hot to touch, too hot! This...


Hello- This is a brand new model, but it works the same as the rest. Heat is produced by the elements. The fan has an element that glows when heating the air. --Convection oven glass gets hotter than normal fanless models.-- This is all normal operation of the oven.  To ensure full life of oven, avoid using the 'self-clean' feature. Techs call this the 'self-destruct' cycle. Please reply to this post if info is helpful- have more if needed- Thanks- Ed

Broken inner glass doo


Hi.
Generally speaking it is not a manufacturing fault.

Can be caused by many reasons.
The main reason is because of a cold surface coming into con tract with the inner door glass, for example, wiping the hot glass door with a cold damp cloth, or banging thr door to hard to close it, there are other reasons as well, but to reiterate, it is not a manufacturing fault.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

F4 error code


Ok, test the element for its operational value. if the element is not getting a signal to warm from the control board, this will be the issue, considering that the element is new and able to warm. replace the Oven control in this case.

JUst to be safe, back track the installation to make sure every connection was properly united. make sure the element was installed correctly. if so, replace the control.

My hotpoint bs32 oven went bang when I turned it on aftewr a while. I replaced the fuse and the grill and all the functions light up and work except the oven. The fan is working but the oven is not warming...


The fan oven element has failed, you need to replace it with a new element.
You need to remove the inner rear cover of the oven.
There you will see the element..
Unscrew and disconnect the leads and refit new element, be care ful not to lose the wires behind the element aperature.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
