A door switch would normally only have 2 wires with no polarity, for the light, it would seem to me. If there are more, it would be in order to control the self cleaning, which would also only require 2 wires and have no polarity. Although normally self cleaning switching is done at a latch, not the door itself.

You can get the diagram at partselect.com
If it is just the door switch, then it shouldn't matter. If you have a voltmeter/tester, then you can test the wires to the switch to see if one is power and one is negative. Most switches work in either direction

    This door switch has about 6 prongs coming from it so it's not as simple as just +ves and -ves. it also controls the selection of the modes to a degree (I think) as in fan forced oven, fanforced with top and bottom elements fan forced grill etc.

Oven switch light stays on


Bad switch on the door or the switch is stuck by food. Look around outside of oven where door seals. Should be a pin sticking out. If you don't see it than it might be a mag switch behind the door or oven body, in which case you would need a professional to repair. Also most have a light over ride switch on the control panel, if its a touch pad electronic it may be sticking or bad. To much pressure can cause the little blister to crack and the button stays down.

Neff electric oven stays hot after turning off


This is normal...there is a cooling fan built in to your oven designed to cool the facial controls when hot and can take some time to cool to an acceptable temper?ture that's why you can feel the air blowing,, usually above the oven door...if you switch off at the mains you are risking the plastic components on the facial melting. Just leave it to Run it is a very low wattage motor and costs very little to run

Need to replace my oven selector switch on my bosch oven HBN13M55OB/03


Hi,
My apologies - I submitted this last night but upon checking for any reply from you, I noticed it had not been posted on the page. I now have to write the entire message again!

Obtaining the part is easy, however fitting it is going to be somewhat more difficult as it's a double oven - meaning it's both higher and heavier. Access for replacing the switch and removing the front panel is from the top so the oven will need to be pulled out from the cabinet or removed. However, the double glass doors make the oven rather front-heavy so it's inclined to topple forward!

This is an expensive appliance and I recommend getting this job done professionally. Should you decide to do the job yourself, you do so at your own risk and you should follow all of the saftey instuctions carefully.

The best - and usually cheapest - place to get any genuine Bosch part is directly from Bosch. They normally deliver in 2-3 working days. The Bosch part number you need is 602732:

http://www.bosch-eshop.com/eshop/bosch/gb/prodlg.htm?Maktx=602732&eshoptype=A&autoselected= £19.63 inc. postage

Click on "Add to Basket" and then "Finish and pay >"
?

Fitting instructions:


I prefer to do this job with the oven fully removed from the housing but it's probably hardwired to the switch/breaker and needs two people to lift it out. Not removing it also means you have to work at a much greater height, so I recommend complete removal, if possible. The job can be done with the oven only half pulled forward from the cabinet, but the front of the oven needs to be fully supported after pulling it forward or the weight of the doors can (and will) cause it to topple forward.
?
1. Power off at the breaker/main switch. If you are going to completely remove the oven, you will need to power off at the main fuse box and then remove the oven power cable from the switch.

2
. Remove the screws which secure the oven to cabinet - these are at the sides and are only visible with the doors open

3
. Pull the oven control knob off of the fascia panel.

4
. Remove the oven completely or pull it forward half-way (see above)

5
. Remove the front half of the top panel of the oven. I think it just unclips on these, but there may be a couple of screws to remove at the side first. You will now have access to the switch area.

6
. Make a detailed note of how all the wires are attached to the main oven switch. It's a good idea to take a digital photo for reference. Some of the wires are the same colours so make sure you don't get them mixed up. Also, some of the terminals on the switch are double, so it's best to draw a diagram and give all the terminals numbers and record which wire goes to each one.

7
. Detach all,the wires from the oven selector switch. There is another white "box" attached to the back of the switch, but you don't need to disconnect the wires from this. This box is the thermostat which is attached to the temperature probe in the oven with a long wire.

8
. Remove the screws securing the selector switch to the oven and detach the switch. Make note of how all the parts - switch / bracket / support, etc - fit together. Another digital photo may be useful here.

9
. Unscrew and pull the thermostat out from the back of the selector switch. You should now be able to remove the switch from the oven.

10
. Assemble the new selector switch with the bracket, support, thermostat, etc and secure it to the oven.

11
. Refit everything else in reverse order of the above.
?
This may be a little bit more complicated than you were expecting. If you don't feel confident to do the work yourself, then please seek professional help. If you do decide to DIY and you let me know when you are planning to do it, I can try to be online to assist you if you get stuck anywhere.

Merry Christmas!

Neff u1661n2gb/05. main oven not working and shorts out electric when try to switch on. top oven works no problem


I had a problem similar. The bottom oven stopped working and the left hand set of controls and clock died. I had three figure quotes for repair. I took the main control unit out from behind the switches, its a pain to do. I took pictures of where the wires went to save confusion later. I removed the main switch unit from the control unit by gently pushing back the inbuilt plastic clips. dont loose the small white connector piece on the end of the switch shaft. I gently pulled the switch knobs from the front then the knob extensions through the same holes. once the unit was out I turned it upside down I could see where two solder tracks on the circuit board had burnt out. I gently cleaned them up and bridged the gap with two short tinned pieces of single core wire I had stripped. I used a soldering gun as it gets really hot really fast and wouldnt damage the components underneath. the only fiddly bit when putting it back together was locating the bottom edge of the control unit in the little gulley, I had to bend the edge of the gulley down to make it easier. Once it was all back together it worked. Half an hour and I saved £300! Now I have to fix the hinges on the bottom oven door as it doesnt shut properly at the top. Any ideas anyone?

My oven shuts down after half hour of use and it blinks the error f9


Check wiring to door lock switch (the wire harness may be connected wrong). Check for stuck lock switch. If the wiring is correct, and the mechanism is not stuck, this will confirm that the door lock mechanism is faulty. Replace it asap.

Interior oven light won't shut off.


Hi, i would check the pressure switch and its connection as well. either the switch is malfunctioning or the wires and connectors are corroded. simply replacing the wires or switch will fix this issue. the switch is usually located on the rim of the inside of the oven door. it will make contact with the oven door and as the oven door closes, the pressure switch is depressed inwards, thus, opening the circuit and cutting power to the light.

Please rate and god bless:)

Kemore oven door signal


The door switch is faulty or not closing.Without the model the switch may be in different places.where the door closes check to see if theres a button if there is thats the switch.regardless look around the seal of where the door shuts for the switch.When you do find it simply disconnect the wires from the switch (there should be 2) and put them together.this should solve your issue.

Oven gives code E6 F2 on panel


The problem in our oven has cleared by itself. I did see the E6 F2 error message but for now, it's working fine. Considering the customer service was only able to help to the extent of reading the error code sheet the same as I was (the sheet is behind the touch pad) and seeing how limited the solutions were, we don't think we'll be buying another Whirlpool. I was pretty insulted when the girl a customer quality called to offer me part #8300453 at half cost of $164 providing I have a service guy look at the stove and call in the part. On top of that, the warrenty is 90 days and the part is on back order. Why would the part be on back order? A) they either did not make an ample supply for inventory, B) there are many ovens needing this part. For an oven to require parts after 2.5 yrs of service and 2 self cleanings tells me someone was sleeping with a cigar in their mouth in Quality Control. Or, learning what that meant.

Enjoy the day!

"door lock" light stays on and oven won't work


On mine, I was able to take of the face plate and unscrew the metal locking arm from the motor. Once i wiggled the locking arm away from the locked position I was able to open the door. Once i opened the door, the little motor which controls the locking arm automatically rotated to the unlocked position and cleared teh "locked door" message on the control panel.
