There is a separate element round the fan which is probably open circuit. remove the rear panel of the cooker and the terminals of this element are exposed and you can test for continuity

How do i fix an oven that bakes unevenly


the cooking I can't help with, but the oven I can.

sounds to me like the bottom element or what controls it is not working. the reason the ones on top are cooking is that the top element is coming on and browning them on top after the heat has made the dow rise and cook.
so essentially everything is cooking from the top down. so when the temp drops its using the top element to heat with and thus browns the top rack.

check ur elements to make sure both work, if so, move on to the thermostat which I have to be the culprit many times.

Why are my rolls not cooking on the bottom but fine on the top and my element is working fine


My guess is this is an electric range. If I am right then it has 2 elements--one on top and one on the bottom. Plus you stated it has convection cooking. Sounds like the bottom element in not working right so all you are cooking with is the top element. In convection cooking the fan circulates the air for even cooking.and sometimes has its own element around the fan. Look closely at the bottom element for any burned out or melted areas that might show. Sometimes they just burn out with no outward signs.

Using an oven with a broken element


if it's electric the broil element also comes on when baking or using the bottom element,it comes on for even cooking when baking so whatever you're cooking will cook on top and bottom so don't use it until you buy the new element and whenever you work on the machine unplug it,also you can damage the clock assy. and that's the computer board and those can be very expensive,i've gone in,changed out the element and it still doesn't work from the element shorting out when it broke and it takes out the computer board so hopefully this doesn't happen

Hello, We have a bosch hbn7052gb oven. The lower oven flashed and now the bottom oven doesn't heat up, everything else works ok the fan, the top oven etc. Can you advise what needs...


Bottom element has failed. Probably 2 screws at rear to remove & replace. Disconnect fast-ons from rear - extract element - replace. best to get electrician to do this - simple job & element should be inexensive. - Rick

Are the top and bottom heating elements both supposed to heat? Only the bottom one is heating except when specifically set on "broil".


Most ovens with top and bottom elements have a multifunction control switch which enables the user to select a certain setting to suit their cooking. The control switch would normally have small pictures of the elements, fan forced function etc, to show what each setting does. Sometimes you may only require the bottom element working and other times you may want/need both.

No manual


The light bulb is the oven light.
The snowflake with 3 raindrops is Defrost Mode (fan runs with no heat to reduce defrost time)
The 2 lines up top & down bottom is Traditional Cooking (heat from top & bottom elements)
The big circle with a fan is the Fan forced Oven
The small line at top only is the Grill Mode
The larger line at top only is the Double Grill Mode
The line up top with the fan underneath is Double Grill with Fan mode
The line on the bottom with fan on top uses the lower element with the fan for delicate dishes

Hotpoint bottom oven


Cooking is determined by 3 things so let's look at what they are and what they do.

They are:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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

Ignis Oven functions


Definately the control with 2 lines where the fan kicks in. The grill and oven elements will come on. The fan will disperse the heat from the grill element evenly and more quickly inside the oven. You will need to reduce cooking temperatures by about ten percent though,or youll burn your dinner. Also keep food down ,not too close to grill element at top of oven, middle is fine. Hope this helps. Regards..

Fan assist wont heat oven


the ring element may have blown. if it works ok with the top and bottom elements, (the convection oven) then it is likely the element surrounding the oven fan.
