SOURCE: Gas oven won't light and the broiler won't light

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I've read your previous post's and can see a couple of scenarios have been thrown out there, so this may just add fuel to the fire...no pun intended.

It sounds to me like a tripped hi-limit safety thermostat is the culprit, hence neither ignitor so much as glows. I'll explain. If the valve where faulty the ignitors woul;d still glow as it is the ignitors which allow the valves to open not the other way around.

Further to that, if the ignitor where faulty, it is unlikely it would be both at the same time, however if a hi-limit safety tripped it shuts down power to both the broil and bake ignitors thus no oven function at all...that is it's function "safety".

The hi-limit safety on your range is on the back wall so you need to slide the oven out (if you haven't done so by now) to inspect it. To do so is pretty easy, one of two ways.

You can jump across it to see if it allows the oven to operate or you can ohm it out with a meter. it should simply be a closed circuit if good, open if not. It is the non-reset type unfortunately so you'll need to replace it.

example

It is part number 8300802 and available at "repairclinic.com" or "searspartsdirect.com" to name just a couple.

Let me know what you find and I'll be glad to help you moving forward from there. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

I have a westing house 509 fan force oven the fan turns off when i turn oven off but the element still goes and goes and goes why


This sound like a switch problem, when you say turned off is the element glowing because the oven light is not working, or it has to be switched off at the mains switch to stop heating, could you clarify.

I have an Indesit oven FI 31 KB. It is 3 years old but never used as it is in a house I have just renovated. I turned the oven on, but the fan did not come on as it is expected to do. Oven and light seem...


sometimes there is a switch that operates when the door is opened or closed causes the fan to stop when the door opens. The switch is normally mounted at a door hinge, or hinge bracket.might have to remove a panal to get to it

PCS 127 does not heat up. Fan and preheat start.


We were able to unscrew the plate that sits behind the latch. 6 screws I believe. Look towards the middle back-right side you will see a red switch. Click it twice. Before we put plate back we tested oven and it worked!!! Hope this info will help you. Dacor oven has been a real problem and I'm a kitchen designer. Will never recommend Dacor anything to my clients after many oven issues.

Fan but no heat


This tutorial will show you how to check your Smeg element and how to replace your Smeg cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
  1. Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Smeg manual.
  2. If you're Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
  3. When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.
