Not heating up to required temperature and burning food at back
The main oven is not heating up to the required temperature, so if i put it on 250 degrees C it would heat to about 180, and if i put it on 200, it would heat to about 160. The food at the back then gets burnt.

Not sure how your oven works, but older ones had a "pre-heat" setting that you would use to get the oven to temp. This ran both the upper (broiler/grill) and lower elements at the same time to raise the heat quickly to temp. Once the oven is pre-heated, you would switch the selector to "bake" and that would only allow the lower element to work after that. If you failed to remove it from "pre-heat", it would use both and burn the food. Just saying.
Ok, I need some information from your to answer this question correctly. 1. How long is your preheat time? Must allow 30 mins for the oven to heat and settle, failure to do this you will have temperature issues, usually burning food. This unit was designed to use both elements to preheat, so inserting food too early will burn your food. 2. What rack position did you select for the product you cooked? This is really important!!! I am a certified tech and I understand this issue you have, but information is key to answer this for you. Most people don't read the instruction manual and treat this oven as all the others on the market. As the ovens get more features, its important to learn how to operate as instructed to avoid these issue and have a great turn out of good food at the same time. Please get back to me if you would like more help. Thanks Gere
would check to make sure both your broil and bake ignitors are working. On some, but not all, both come on to preheat, and then the broil shuts off. Another, and more likely culprit would be the temperature sensor located in the oven itself. Its the silverish metal rod protruding from the back wall inside the oven. It could be bad and not converting heat/elsectrical signal properly causing the main control to regulate the temperature incorrectly.If the sensor you are talking about is the oven temperature sensor than its just as easy, since you are behind the machine already, to take off the back panal, unplug the sensor and measure resistance there. Either way the resistance should read around 1099-1100 ohms.even a small margine off can cause a major temperature difference.
hello there Usually, when an oven won't heat up or bake, it's because the
bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil-
thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element
glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It
may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns
out, you need to replace it.Now if the oven It bakes poorlyHere are two instances of when food "bakes
poorly:"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 Hope thisis very helpful for you Best regards Michael .
this could be the thermostat or the main oven element this sheet might help.

1, If the fan motorin the back of the oven is going round and
the temperature light is on (normally little red light), but there is no heat
then you will probably need a new oven element, these are generally very easy
to fit and readily available from our website these can be tested with a
electric meter. To gain access to the NEFFelement you will
have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you will see
the fan and element, if you
look closely at the elementyou will
probably see a small hole burnt in it where it has blown. Sometimes however
there is no evidence of a fault but the elementis open circuit ie:
broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Some
elements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nuts
from the rear of the machine. 2, If your NEFF fan
oven is getting warm but takes a very long time to cook or is burning the food
more on one side than the other, then you need to check if your oven fan motoris working you will
see the blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fan motoris not blowing the heat into the oven then
you need To replace the oven fan motoris a little more
expensive and a bit more involved. 3. If you have the opposite problem ie: your oven is over heating
and burning everything then you will need to replace your NEFF oven thermostat 4, A quite common and easily overlooked answer is if your NEFF oven is not working at all ie: no
heat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timerinto AUTO mode,
simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.
HI. the oven temp sensor is malfunctioning. have it inspected for damage. check the wires leading from the control to the sensor for cuts and damage as well. replace the sensor if these issues with heating persist.
When you first use your Oven, the Oven will need to "settle". That is, it needs to burn off production residues and dust. The metal used in the Oven will also expand slightly when first used. You will experience some crackling and a strong smell. This is perfectly normal and we advice you anticipate this "settling" prior to use. Using an empty Oven, select Function 4 and set a temperature of 250°, allow the Oven to "settle" for hour, turn to function 3 and heat for a further 1/2 hour. Multifunction Oven Function Selections
2. Defrost - This function activates the fan only, (no heat is used) to allow controlled and hygienic defrosting. 3. Conventional cooking - Normal or traditional cooking functions using the top and bottom elements. When using this function set the thermostat between 50 - 250°C. When the desired temperature is reached the yellow light will go out and then alternate between lit and unlit as the temperature is controlled. 4. Fan-Forced cooking - This selection is best for multilevel cooking as the heat generated by the central element is circulated around the Oven, creating an even heat environment. You will need to set the thermostat dial between 50-250°C for this function. 5. Center Griller - For best results set the thermostat to MAX. The door may remain closed or completely open. 6. Large Griller - For best results set the thermostat to MAX. The door may remain closed or completely open. 7. Fan Griller - This function combines the grill element with fan assistance and is used in conjunction with the thermostat. The Oven door must remain CLOSED during cooking. The thermostat dial should be set between 50-250°C for this function. 8. Fan-assisted Baking or Patisserie Setting - Combines the concealed bottom element with fan assistance and is used in conjunction with the thermostat. The Oven door must remain CLOSED during cooking.
Advanced Oven Features Cavity Cooling The Oven has an advanced cavity cooling system. A cylindrical fan is mounted on the rear outside frame of the Oven. This fan assists the movement of air through the Oven cavity keeping it cool. In addition to reducing the temperature in the Oven cavity, the air is blown out around the Oven door handle which keeps the door handle cool. The cooling fan is activated when the Oven light or any cooking function is selected and will switch off after all Oven functions have been turned off. Triple Reflective Door Glazing Some Ovens have two levels of removable door glass. The two inner layers are removable and are made of a reflective glass which, in effect, reflects heat back into the Oven and results in a significant reduction in the outside door surface temperature. To clean the door glass, use a coin or large screwdriver to remove the screws. Wipe both sides of the inner, middle and outer glass. Wipe the sealing gasket. Don't forget to replace the rubber sealing gasket around the centre glass layer before replacing the glass. Ensure the narrow air gap lies between the inner and centre glass layers and the wider gap lies between the centre and outside glass layers. Tighten each screw gradually, one then the other until firm. Do not overtighten.
Wipe Clean Enamel (Extra Optional) Some models have easyclean blue enamel paint throughout the internal cavity walls. Other models have baking trays and grill pans finished in the soft grey super tough "wipe clean" enamel. This enamel is less porous than conventional, so that food does not adhere as easily. Simply wipe clean with a soapy cloth or creme cleanser when cooking is finished. For baked on residue, use a smooth scraper or if necessary a non-caustic Oven cleaner.
Drop Down Grill Element (Extra Optional) The removal of a single screw at the front of the upper grill element in some models allows the element to drop down so that cleaning of the roof of the Oven is made easy. On completion of cleaning, simply replace the grill element and secure with the screw, finger-tight.
Function 3: Normal Oven baking using heat from both the upper element and concealed lower element.
To bake, place the Oven rack in the appropriate position according to the type of food to be cooked. Turn the Function Selector to Position 3 and the thermostat knob to the correct temperature, and allow the Oven to fully preheat for best results.
Ideal for cooking casseroles, soufflés, roast, meats, and other items which require a slow method of cooking.
Function 4: Fan-forced central element cooking requires slightly different timing techniques than normal cooking. The fan draws the air in and over the central element which is positioned around the fan and then circulates it back around the Oven cavity. The even distributor of heat allows foods to rise and cook simultaneously regardless of shelf level. Lower cooking temperatures and in some cases less cooking time is another advantage of this feature.
Turn the Function Selector to Position 4 and turn the thermostat to the desired temperature. Pre heating takes much less time than a normal bake Oven.
Note: When cooking meats, for best results always preheat the Oven to ensure the meat surface is sealed to lock-in juices for a moist and tender result.
Fan forced cooking is ideal for multilevel cooking e.g.. patty cakes. Another advantage of fan forced cooking is that different types of food may be cooked simultaneously without mixing the aromas or flavours. When using the Oven in this way, ensure that all the foods require the same cooking temperature and check the finish times of each dish for best results.
Please note that fan-forced cooking is faster than conventional methods, so take care not to burn your food when you first start using this method.
Function 5 & 6: During grilling the door may remain closed or completely open.
This function offers the traditional grilling method necessary to achieve proper browning without overcooking the interior of the foods.
Position 5 activates the centre section of the upper grill element only, which is ideal for browning smaller portions or thinner cuts of meat.
Position 6 activates the entire upper element for the grilling of large quantities or thick cuts of meat.
Allow the griller to pre-heat for approx. 2 minutes before sliding the tray into position.
Place the grill tray into the roasting pan and arrange food according to the function you have selected, either in the centre of the tray or spread across the full width of the tray. Position the tray at the correct grilling level and turn the thermostat control to MAX for best results.
As the temperature is set to MAX you may need to adjust your grilling shelf height to suit the desired cooking result. If the tray is too close to the element, the food will be exposed to the full effect of the element and may burn and create smoke.
Cooking is determined by 3 things so let's look at what they are and what they do.
The Fan Oven Element - This is very much the same as a light bulb only instead of giving off light it gives off heat. Like a light that is switched On or Off by a wall switch, the Element is switched On or Off by a Thermostat according to the temperature required. In short if the element fails your oven will be cold.
The Fan & Motor - This sucks the air in through the centre mesh and circulates it around the Element and pushes the heated air out of the top, bottom and sides of the back-plate. Fan ovens cannot heat properly if the fan is not running OR if the fan runs too slowly as the motor starts to fail.
The Thermostat. - This is basically an On/Off Switch that responds to the temperature in the oven. If The Fan is running correctly and you are achieving some temperature in the oven, then the fault will be with the Thermostat.
I hope this Helps - Terry
ALWAYS ISOLATE THE POWER SUPPLY BEFORE WORKING ON THEI APPLIANCE!
When foods are burned, soggy, or baked unevenly, it generally means heat isn't being distributed evenly throughout the oven, its escaping out the door or the controls are out of adjustment.
1) Remove any aluminum foil from racks or the bottom of the oven.
2) Check the door gasket and, if necessary, have it replaced.
3) Be sure nothing is obstructing the vent.
4) Reposition the oven racks so baking pans aren't too close to the heat sources.
5) Check your baking pans. If they're dark, they may be burning your food. Reduce temperature by 25 degrees F when baking in dark metal or glass pans.
6) Recalibrate the controls.
