The oven had a burning smell to it and then the fuse blew. At this stage, I cannot flip the fuse back on without it blowing within a second. Any thoughts?

It sounds like somethin did burn, likely a wire, and it has "gone to ground" and tripped the breaker. If the breaker will only reset momentarily, it is doing it's job, and it is telling you that a hazard exists. It is probably time to call a serviceman, or someone who is comfortable with appliance repair. Good luck, Rob

My baumatic oven elemant burned out and blew mains fuse,so replaced both and their seems to be no power at all getting to oven


Some units have their own fuse. Usually near where the power supply goes into the oven. Check your Meyer box for tripped RCD or circuit breaker too.

Thanks, this was very helpful and got me to open up my oven on my own and saves...


If you have had the unfortunate experience of having the igniter on your gas oven go out at the worst possible time. Then you probably are also dreading the installation of the new igniter. Do not fear the replacement really is no that hard.

The first thing that you need to do is remove the racks from your oven.

Then look around at the back of your oven for the screws that hold the bottom pan down.

Remove those screws and remove the pan. Some need to slide back and then come up others will just pull up.

Remove the heat shield that is over the burner.

Remove the bottom drawer of your oven.

Now you should be able to see the igniter that sits on an angle by the burner tubes with a couple of wires coming out of it.

Removing the screws that hold the igniter is probably the most difficult part with some ovens. Sometimes it is easier to remove the whole bracket that holds the igniter and then remove and replace the igniter out of the oven.

The wires for the igniter will go to a Molex plug. Follow the wires and undo the plug. On many units it will be below the oven in the drawer opening at the top back. You will need to lay flat on the floor and reach back in to do this.

Once you have the old igniter out then you can carefully install the new one. Hopefully when you get it out of the box it will be in one piece yet. I had to get an igniter for an oven I worked on shipped three times before I got one that was not broken.
Any dropping or banging against anything will crack that igniter. BE CAREFUL!!

Check to make sure that you can feed the Molex plug and wires down through to the bottom before fastening the igniter.

Once the igniter is secured and the plug is connected, you can then replace the other parts in the reverse order that they came out.

This all sounds difficult, but really is not that hard. Even a first timer will have it done in less then a half an hour.

Oven light blew and now no power to the oven.


If you are not knowledgable in electricity, call for service.
This is an electrical short at the light, I have seen this before.
The wiring for the light has grounded to the oven. This causes the main fuse to blow. You will need to fix the short first. Then reset the main fuse/replace.
In the case of the wall oven, you may have to remove the oven to fix it properly. Depending on the model and where the short is.

Oven wont heat


There is a temperature activated thermostat (TOD) that is located on the back of the oven that would explain the problem you are having. The part can be checked with an ohmmeter and should read 0 resistance if it is good. The part number is 9759243 if your model number in the description is accurate (RBS245PDS)

Where can i find the fuses in an older model wall mounted oven? I was replacing the thermostat control and believe I blew a fuse...


There are NOT usually fuses within ovens. Those that had a fuse were ONLY for a convenience outlet if present.

Normally the unit AND wiring to it are protected from your main breaker box.

Oven burner doesnt light


Doubt that the glow plug is bad. Gas only needs about 1100 degree F. to ignite using the glow plug method. It really seems as if there may be no gas getting to the burner. If there is no flame, you should be able to smell gas. If there is no gas smell, then I would look for the obvious such as: is the gas turned on?, Does the gas valve on the unit have a safety that is tripped? and so on. A new gas valve may be in order but make sure that it is receiving the proper voltage when the glow plug is on. Lastly, there may be a safety that is malfunctioning. If the unit does not light within a given time, the safety will "Lock Out" the unit so the place doesn't fill up with gas.
Hope this helps and good luck.

Smeg oven not working. only clock and thermostat light working


It sounds like you have either one of the following things that need attention. First, turn off both breakers to the oven and then back on. Next check the wiring from the receptacle to the back of the oven. Next, check your internal fuses. Most ovens have them. Last, check the wiring to the elements and control switches. Somewhere you have a wire burned off the terminals or control switch. That smell you referred to is probably one of the wires that may be burned.

Bake or broil does not work


if an element itself had shorted it would not stop the other from working and you could inspect each element and see blistering as evidence.the pop you heard has to be in common with both elements but not the cook top[burners]so thats going to be the wiring in the back of range, or switching,[thermostat,clock timer or oven selector switch,depends on which model you have]you will have to pull range and remove back pannels.you will find an obivous burn't connection.too repair all new connections must be clean and tight,or will burn again.
