Ok. I actually just kept pressing the buttons until numbers started scrolling up and down. Once the numbers appeared without the bell symbol you are then setting the clock time.
thanks

This might be a couple of things:

  • Check circuit breakers...there are two that control the oven in tandem. Is one blown open? Turn both off and then on.
  • Check all wiring to the unit. You may have an open wire anywhere in the line including at the terminals in the oven. Make sure breakers are off to do this and all below.
  • Remove the element and check for resistance. There should be some. Also check the element terminals and the plug in the oven for corrosion while you're at it.
  • None of those: the thermostat or over temp sensor might be bad. Find these by looking at the wiring diagram on the back of the stove and tracing out the wiring.
  • Electronics package. Replace if none of the above.

SOURCE: steps required to replace 2200watt

Symptoms= Oven light ok, thermostat light ok, oven not heating at all or to a low heat. May also have tripped the circuit breaker on the switchboard
Probably the element
Switch off power to the oven at switchboard
Open the oven door just a little and pull the door up to remove it.
Lift the panel at the oven back wall over the fan.
See the coiled element, you may already see a defect in the surface of the element.
Remove the screw at the base of the coil
With a small sharp screwdriver flip out the clip on each side of the element at the top
Feed the element out of the holes
Note that the green wire is attached to the frame of the element and the red wire to the core of the element.
The other side of the element may have two white wires
Disconnect all these wires, maybe using a pliers.
You can check this element with a simply multimeter, buy a new element and refit opposite to removal

Oven pilot light is on, but burners will not light. pilot light burns larger when trying to turn burner on. Do I need a new thermostat?


The thermostat is doing it's job if the pilot gets bigger. When you turn on the thermo, it does 2 things: Makes the pilot bigger and supplies gas to the oven safety valve in the oven. The bigger pilot heats up the bulb from the valve and the stuff inside expands and turns on the main gas. The oven cycles when temo is reached by making the pilot smaller. The most common problem is that the pilot doesn't get big enough to satisfy the valve. Take out the pilot burner ***'y. (7/16" wrench for the nut). Replace the pilot burner. The part is probably a 5414S030 if the valve bulb is located parallel to the ***'y.

Gas oven dosnt work


the pilot light is there for 2 purposes. number 1 to light the burner and number 2 to heat up the thermocouple, thermocouple is a wire that the flame from pilot suppose to surround by fire. if the pilot is to low it will not reach the thermocouple. you can take the gas line that supplies gas to the pilot and clean it with a safety pin or a small needle. you can test the thermocouple by heating it up with a blow torch on low heat, get it red hot and then turned on the oven. if the oven works clean the pilot, if the oven do not work, replace the thermocouple if separate from safety valve. if thermocouple is part of it replace the safety valve.

I hate my Westinghouse Fan forced oven Model Freestyle 688. The temperature control is so unreliable. It cooks about 100 degrees above what the temperature should be. It has been like this since new. I...


in the owners manual with most of the ovens it will tell you haow that you can vary the temprature of the thermastat 50 degrees up or down but not 100 you can try that and if it does not fix the issue then you will have to replace the oven sensor
