Hello,Is your element fixed to the back wall by (1)Two Phillips head screws or (2)the ends of the element are about "8" apart and held in with 2 clips.Switch off the power on the main switch board marked RANGE,STOVE OR OVEN.
In case of (1) unscrew and take the element out,pull off the 3 push on connectors,get new element and do it in reverse.
In case of (2) get a small screwdriver,push the clip just above the tube from the element going to the back and the clip should jump out,do the same for the other side,lift up the element a 1/4 and pull it out carefully not to loose the cable as they are very short

Thanks

We have a 2 and a half yr. old Frigadare oven and the element went out. we bought a new one (gave them the model number) and the new element is so skinny than the original one. I turned the oven on to 375...


When you replace an oven element you must replace it with an element of the same rating. Say the original was a 2400 watt element. You could probably get away with a 2200 watt replacement element. You would not put an 1800 watt element in as a replacement. It wont heat up as much, particularly if it is a big oven. I would check both ratings first.

I need to replace a bake element for a 1950's GE Oven (Model # D14X1DC) but the exact volts and watts for a element are hard to find (236 volts, 3000 watts). Do the volts and watts have to be exactly the...


I found a website that helped, here are some model numbers that work for the GE element. ERB44X126 , Ch44x126-450546 these work for the 3000 watt 236 volts. hope this help.

My omega europa oven is not heating up .grill fan


Sounds like a faulty fan oven element. To replace: Disconnect from power (usually easiest to switch off at fuse box). Remove racks etc from inside oven. Remove rear panel inside oven- four screws. You will now see a heating element that goes around the fan- often you see blow mark on element. You need to remove the back panel of oven to access the nuts that hold element in- two nuts, undo nuts, remove wiring from element. New element available from any good appliance repair shop. Reverse procedure to refit. Happy fixing!!

Bake element fell apart. Changed it out with replacement element (Emerson CH 5862 PCN 458580, 240Volts, 2800 Watts) Still does not work.


As a general rule, when you change an oven element, you should change the thermostat as well as the element failing can sometimes take out the thermostat as well. (Info. courtesy of a NEFF engineer many years ago as they always change both if an element fails).
If you haven't done so, I would suspect the thermostat.

Omega oven model number is OO910XA


If it is a common problem with Omega, they may not be ready to admit it. Since it occured 2 times, possibly the hinges use nylon rollers for smooth and quiet operation, but the hinges are not well shielded from the hi heat of 500-600 degrees and the nylon parts fail after a few months constant heat exposure. There is a common problem that happens with oven doors when they do not seam to close tight: besides being old and normally worn, if a door is leaned on while it is open, the hinges could be stretched and then they will never allow the door to close tight. This has happened to many ovens regardless of age, and the customer never realized that the weight or pressure they applied to the door when in the open position has done damage; yet they wunder why the door does not close well. Goodluck,Macgivor

I need a manual for omega oven,model not known.


Hello. If your stove is manufactured by Omega Appliances, it appears that they no longer produce it. That said I can speak to your heating element issue. When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out. You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results. If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component. When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.
If you would like to contact the Omega Appliance company directly, you can reach them as follows: http://omegaappliances.com/contactus.php

Can i replace my oven element from 1400 watt to 2000 watt ?


NO, This will cause a major voltage spike and may short the main circuit breaker in some cases. I recommend replacing the original element with the equivalent wattage rates.
