The hot plate needs a new thermostat. When thermostats go bad, there is no control of temperature and they stay on high. The circuit remains closed, not allowing any cycling of power, which regulates the temp

4 Plate stove (hob), when switching on one of the plates it keeps tripping all the power. I have replaced the switch however problem persists. Secondly remaining 3 plates only seem to reach a low...


I would suggest you replace the hotplate that keeps tripping the supply, this hopefully will solve the prob you are experiencing with the other plates.

How do I light the oven on a gas stove


If this is a newer stove (that does not have a pilot light...and most newer stoves don't), you shouldn't have to light the oven manually (if you think you need to, you have a faulty stove). Manual ignition of a stove is also potentially dangerous as larger amounts of gas in the oven can cause small explosions. Most modern gas stoves use a very hot glowbar to both regulate the amount of gas entering the oven and igniting that gas. If you have a faulty glowbar, it will not allow enough gas to enter the oven and may not be hot enough to ignite the little gas that does enter (that is why you may smell gas). It sound like you may need to replace the glowbar (or visually inspect the glowbar to see if it gets red hot. If it does, it may still be faulty (not drawing enough power). The only way to test this is to use a clamp-on ampmeter and test the current flow through the wires feeding the glowbar. They should read between 3.1 and 3.7 amps. Anything lower means the glowbar should be replace. If you cannot see the glowbar get red hot, you have an electrical problem or a circuit board problem.

Westinghouse Freestyle 476 Cooktop Oven


After getting an electrician out, apparently the time needs to be set on the oven. As we're in a rental & don't have a manual/ couldn't download one, we got it to work after holding the first two buttons in (the timer buton + the one that looks like a hot pot) along with the + button at the far right, which made the tim tick on, so it could be set.

The oven works now! : )
