Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Below is a link to common solutions that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
It provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Once you access the site you will be able to navigate numerous pages of information on your product. You will need to enter your model number to access your product information.

Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint. I will post the most common solutions to your complaint. For more specific information please refer to the tip and/or link provided. Here are some things to look for:

Usually, when an oven won't 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.

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

SOURCE: Chef fan forced oven stopped

the first thing that goes bad is the element, electric stoves work like the light switch on the wall and light bolt. the element is like the light bolt and the thermostat works like the light switch on the wall. and like the light bolt they do go bad often. so the element needs replacing. but before that i check for power to the element, making sure the thermostat supplies electricity.

How do i replace a bottom element


Without knowing what make it is, it makes it pretty difficult to say. Most ovens have an element in the bottom of the oven compartment. If its a fan forced oven, the element is a cicular one which fits behind a panel in the back of the oven. Some ovens have an element which is fitted behind the floor of the oven and transfers the heat through the base of the oven. In almost all cases, you will have to pull the oven out and remove the back. Make sure the power is OFF to the oven before you do anything.

Replacing element in the oven. Can you do it from the inside


On most ovens it is generally just a matter of undoing 2 screws inside the oven to release the element bracket. Wiring terminals can then be accessed. If it is fan forced and the element is surrounding the fan you will need to take the fan/element cover off. If the element is beneath the floor of the oven you will need to take the back off the oven to gain access.

Bosch HBN 70 Fan oven will not heat up to temperature, fan and light are working just no heat


99% of the time the problem will be a faulty element or burnt off wire at the element terminal. Best way is to pull the back cover off the oven and check the terminal connections. If these are okay put a set of test lamps across the terminals and you should have 240 volts. If you have 240 volts this tells you that the wiring is okay and the element is faulty. When you turn the oven setting to fan forced selection the power is delivered to the fan forced fan motor and the oven element at the same time. I am not familiar with this exact oven but most fan forced ovens have two fans. There is the fan at the back of the oven that comes on with the oven element and then the extractor fan in the cavity of the oven, which you cannot see but can hear. I trust you are talking about the fan forced oven fan which is generally at the back of the oven.

The main oven has stopped working. The fan works and the Small oven also works.


There could be a few different things wrong. The element may have died. Is the fan you mention the forced air fan? No heat usually means blown fuse or faulty heating element, and since the small oven works I would suspect the the element has blown. You would benefit from getting an appliance serviceman to make a house call to replace the element. Unless you're handy and have a soldering iron, some heat resistant sleeving, and can access the back of the oven comfortably.

Hope this helps. Let me know.
