What wire goes where for my Westinghouse Freestyle elements?

Oven = Westinghouse Freestyle 662. I stupidly unplugged my elements to make sure I got the right ones. The elements have four blades, two on the inner core and two on the outer layer. I have three plugs in my oven. The single wire on one side is black, I gather that goes on the core. The other side has two plugs, green and brown (the brown [on the fan element] is white on the griller element). The first time I plugged green onto the core, it sparked and blew the fuse, the elements were undamaged. If I put green on the outer layer will it damage the elements (A$80)? or is that how they should be? PS: next time I'll take a photo first... thanks.

Oven wiring has the same conventions as house wiring.
green = earth, outside coating
brown or white = one of core ends
black = the other end

I did the same thing.
Except I have two white wires on one side and one pink and one green on the other side.
Each side seems to have three pins.
One pin is connected to the outside skin (I think this is earth)
The two other pins are joined t the centre core of the element.
It is the same on each side

    This is what I did. I pulled the grill element out to have a look at the wiring. I was the same one green (earth) but instead of one pink it had one white and two whites on the other side. I connected it up the same as the grill element and it works perfectly. I also took a photo this time

How do you change the oven element on a Westinghouse PAJ143W as the element is hidden


To replace Westinghouse PAJ143W oven element you need to look at the back of oven with a torch etc, and you will see the element ends go into the back through clips on each side. At the top of these clips in the middle there is a bit where you get a screwdriver to push down and lever forward and it will come out a bit you do this on both sides. Then lift the clips and element 'both sides'' together and carefully pull forward making sure you're careful with the wiring and pull out a little making sure you stop the wires slipping back while you swap elements. Make sure you put plate at front back in place to keep element up off the bottom, it has two reswts for element on it.

I need to replace the element on my westinghouse freestyle 808 oven . where can i order one how do i change the element? thanx


pull the unit out of the housing and rest on a suitable work bench. turn off the power and remove the rear cover you will see the grill element, ring element and the bottom element. depending on whcih one has blown they are relatively straight forward to replace.
as for where to purchase one depends on what country and area you live in. best to search for someone local on line

Oven not igniting and heating


Without the model number I can only give you basic information. If you are refering to the Glow Ignitor located in the center bottom rear of the oven concted to the burner tube, then this Ignitor could be bad and most tech's will change it first.

Even if it is glowing does not mean it is good.

For more detailed information please include as much information as postible and the Make and Model # off the machine.

Always unplug the machine when trying to service it.
