HI i have a bain marie and the lights keep

HI i have a bain marie which has 2 heat lamps and a 1500w element run by a simmerstat 6333.
the problem is with the lights, they keep tripping the circuit breaker, once the switch wire for the lights has been isolated the simmerstat runs the element fine and the breaker does not trip. how are the lights wired is there a ballast or something hiding behind the panel.

It is most likely the pop came from a relay on the control board if the elements checked ok but not getting power to them. This is fairly common on fridgidaire ranges. Replace the oven control. Usually the control overlay is sold as a separate piece.

SOURCE: solid cooktop elements not heating,tripping breaker switch in panel box,w&w/o cartridges

By cartriges do you mean the sockets that the element plug into? If so when one of these burn out it will cause these type of problems.

When I pour water through it doesn't come out hot--unit doesn't seem to be heating the water

First check the hi-limit thermostat (90percent of the time this is the problem)...If that is the problem the part number is 2T-47499. Next check the Element for continuity with an ohm meter, if it is bad you will need to order a new one. Be sure to check the wattage, Some of the 120v brewers have a 1500w element and some have an 1800w element . Either can be used on the 120v machine. The 1800 watt element is a bit faster in heating. If you have the 220/240v machine you will have to order a "coil" shaped element. That is a 3500w element. There is a third problem possible and that is the Thermostat. The capilary tube could be broken (happens in the lime/rust/sulpher belt of the midwest)..If you know how to use an ohm meter you can find the problem quickly. I have a video on checking a Bunnomatic temperature, heater and hi-limit circuit, maybe it will help.

Fisher and Paykel Paprika Oven Top Elements Full hot!!

No controller. The switch for each element (called a simmerstat) is what controls the heat. It is a common fault and will be fixed if you instal new simmerstat for each faulty element.

Stove elements gets way overheated is it just the elements that need changing or is it wiring?

Hi - the elements are ok - theres no need for that to be replaced - the simmerstat or as some retailers refer to as regulator needs to be replaced instead - **MUST GET A CERTIFIED -REGISTERED** to do this - consequences could be fatal.

I have a Simpson electric oven with stove top elements, and one of the burners will only cook at the highest level, I cant figure out how to change it, any suggestions?

You need to change the "Simmerstat", take the model number to your local electrical parts supplier/parts counter at your local stove retail shop that sells Simpson stoves and ask for one for that model, make sure you get the right one for the position as some control a single element and some control dual elements.

Remove the upper back panel of the stove. Swap wire for wire of the old simmerstat to the new one, remove the knob from the old Simmerstat, undo the nut securing the simmerstat in the oven control panel and discard, fit new one, secure, fit knob, fit back panel, turn on wall switch and test.

Some countrys/states require registered electricians perform this task on electrical appliances so you must ensure you can do this legally before you start and take the relevant safety precautions and don't electrocute yourself.

New heaters need to do a start up or testing for proper operation model f2f5103n TPI corp. Industrial type heater

When you are ready to test run the unit you should take an amperage draw reading on the elements.
The formula to see if the elements are drawing the correct amps is: (voltage x amps=watts) example: If a heating element is 1500 watts and your voltage is 120 volts, then your amps will be 12.5 amps. (120v x 12.5A=1500W)
The easiest way to check amp draw is with a clamp on amp meter.
