Simpson Alpha 2U608W slow at cooking. I am using someones oven at the moment and it is really slow at cooking and heating up and I am sure when I put it on fanbake it wasn't heating at all. Obviously I have turned the temperature gauge on to my desired temperature (200 degrees) and the function onto "Bake". Is there any other buttons I need to push? - there are some buttons under the clock but I have no idea what they are for.

SOURCE: Oven does not maintain temperature while cooking.

Is this a gas unit? If so you might have a weak oven igniter.

Check for the fuse on the panel board.

Simpson Nova oven model 63-538 fan and light not working


I have the same oven and the fan doesnt work intermittantly. I turn it on and off a few times and if that doesnt work I give the fan a push with the handle of a wooden spoon. Works so far so I havent bothered with a 'real' fix as yet.

Tip

I have not checked the heating element with a ohm meter yet but the heating...


If you are having problems with your electric oven heating up too slowly, not being able to maintain temperature set point, or wild variations in temperature, then you probably have a bad baking element in your oven.

The bake element is the bottom element in your oven. The life span of these elements can vary depending on the usage of your oven and the quality of the element. Anything electric has an unpredictable lifespan. Elements made on the same assembly line can vary greatly in how long they last. But when the element burns out it will need to be replaced to have your oven work properly.

The thing the fools many people is that many ovens will use the broil element to preheat the oven and then switch to using the baking element only. When this happens the oven will no longer heat and will cool down. The unit may sense this and activate the broil element again which will cause wild swings in temperature and also can cause food to burn on the top self or not bake properly.

If you can see the elements, watch them and see if they both get red hot when initially warming the oven. If only the top, broil element gets hot then you have a burned out element or a bad contacts where the element plugs into. Usually lifting the element and pulling out on it will release the element. If the contacts are discolored or pitted then they could be causing your problems. By using an ohm meter you can check the resistance of the element. If you get no continuity through the element it is no good. Bad elements will often have blisters, bubbles, or even burn in two.

If the element contacts are bad, make sure the you replace both the element and the receptacle that the element plugs into. Replacing only the element will only temporarily solve your problem.

Have shifted house, my Simpson Apollo ceramic oven won't work. The elements are fine. The timer and auto lights are flashing. I can't seem to make it stop. I have no user guide to help fix this error,...


The timer needs to be set to manual mode for the oven to work. Turn the oven control on. Play with the buttons on the timer. Try all combinations. It may take 5 or more minutes. When the oven indicator light comes on you will know it is on manual and the oven is working.

Resetting the clock


Hello,

You can set the timer on a single oven slow cooker to automatically switch to a warming setting when you estimate foods will finish cooking.The programmable features allow you to leave food stewing at home while you are out of the house, freeing up your day. Set the timer on a Corningware slow cooker to let the kitchen appliance do all the work, and come home to a fully cooked meal.

INSTRUCTION BELOW.

  • Fill the insert of the single oven slow cooker with food and cover it with the lid. At least a quarter of the insert should be filled with liquid to keep the environment moist during long cooking times.
  • 2 Press the "On/Off" button on the left side of the electronic control panel in the front of the appliance. This will turn on the slow cooker to the low heat "Warm" setting.
  • 3 Press the "Cook Time" button on the right side of the electronic control panel to add hours to the timer which will show a total time in hours with a red digital display. Continue to press the button until the display indicates the desired cook time in one-hour increments up to 10 hours. The cooker will automatically adjust the temperature setting based on the amount of time you programmed on the timer. Cooking times of six hours or less automatically start on "High" heat and times of seven hours or more will start on "Low" heat. A small indicator light will come on below the word to tell you the cooking temperature.

    Oven heating really slow


    yes it sounds as if there is a "HOT-SPOT" on the element which will look like a dis colored spot and will be either bubbled up or have pock marks where its burning thru and can no longer pass sufficient current to heat the element fully

    Simpson Evolution 904 wall oven cooks very unevenly


    I agree, the heating is very uneven in our oven, however, when I calibrated the temperature with a thermocouple, I discovered that the temperature gauge was 25C too hot! That is, if I set the oven temperature gauge to 155C, it was actually 180C inside the oven! Taking this in to account, it is now much easier to cook things without them burning.

    I have a turbochef C3 and it works fine. It heats up and stays hot, but i can't figure out how to program it to cook on a timer. The screen says "please wait - warming up - CC494*F IR 855*F" So...


    the oven is not really able to cook on the fly,it is pre programmed so the times are set due to weight and mass.try to use the programs already set up and then trial and error will show which 1 to use,hope this helps

    Seems to be taking a long time to cook


    To preheat oven just select the temp you intend to cook at and wait until the red light goes out,it is then preheated
    Then you can put your food in and carrying on cooking.
    Yes you do put it on fan symbol, but make sure it is on the right one , as some ovens have fan only as well as fan and heat.
    Plz rate this solution.
    thanks.

    Simpson 2001 series upright electric stove oven does not get hot only gets warm


    It could be the oven element (behind the cover plate in the back of the oven), or the fan not blowing the heat into the oven.
