SOURCE: Broken oven

First, verify it is the problem. (A working element has a conductive core, or wire, all the way through it). If the core wire is broken, it is defective. To verify it is broken, use an Ohmmeter - if value is above 500 Ohms the core is likely broken. Replace it.

To test without an Ohm meter, use a flashlight bulb and flashlight batteries, some wire and run the loop through the element. If bulb lights, core is ok.

If broken, take it in to any small appliance store as most oven elements are VERY similar. Likely they will have one in stock. They will be cheaper than over the internet.

hiya
firstly make sure the power is isolated before removing any panels.
sometimes the element will just screw out from the inside of the oven and should pull through into the oven compartment with the wires attached, simply remove the wires, replace the element and refit any panels.

hope this helps

SOURCE: broken steering wheel on 1995 buick riviera

I am assuming that you have a broken tilt bracket in your steering column. I just changed one Last Friday. You will need a few special tools (steering wheel puller, steering shaft spring compressor and a pivot pin removal tool. You can rent some of these. You will also need a 1/4" drive ratchet with extension and female torx bits. Look up on line or buy a book to take you through the process. Remember to disconnect the battery and wait for 10 minutes before beginning. This will keep the air bag from giving you a 200 mile per hour surprise. I bought a set of dealer manuals for 35.00 on Ebay last week to guide me. It will take you about 3 hours at least. This narrative should help you to decide if this is something you want to do at least.

SOURCE: how to remove simpson wall oven with cable

Not if you can access you main electrical panel. You should be able to turn off the 50 Amp Double Pole Breaker that provides power to the wall oven/ Note, sometimes it's a 40 or a 60 amp breaker depending on the age and requirements for the wall oven.

You should be able to turn off the breaker and safely remove the oven and disconnect the wiring connections once you pull the oven out of the opening. Be sure to fully tape each wire once you disconnect them from the oven to prevent an accidents - also, LEAVE THE BREAKER OFF until the new oven has been properly installed!

IF you aren't sure which breaker it is and really want to be ultra safe, you can shut off the main breaker, but you'll be without power until you've got the oven removed and have safely taped each conductor with SEVERAL wraps of electrical tape to prevent contact with the bare conductors.

Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!

I have a 'Simpson 2001 Thermaflow Oven' and a few months ago, i was heating it up, and i heard a pop, from then on my oven has not heated up, i cannot seem to find what is wrong with it!! Please...


I would say that the oven element has blown. It is common especially if you have a fan forced model. Make sure the fan works before you go buying a new element as the replacement will fail early. Simpson ovens have to be removed from the wall cavity to replace the fan and the element. Make sure you tuen the power off before doing anything...
Give the parts supplier your model number so that you get the fight element ( and fan) if necessary.

I have a Simpson electric oven with stove top elements, and one of the burners will only cook at the highest level, I cant figure out how to change it, any suggestions?


You need to change the "Simmerstat", take the model number to your local electrical parts supplier/parts counter at your local stove retail shop that sells Simpson stoves and ask for one for that model, make sure you get the right one for the position as some control a single element and some control dual elements.

*** TURN OFF THE WALL SWITCH AND ENSURE NO POWER IS APPLIED TO THE STOVE BEFORE PROCEEDING ****
Remove the upper back panel of the stove. Swap wire for wire of the old simmerstat to the new one, remove the knob from the old Simmerstat, undo the nut securing the simmerstat in the oven control panel and discard, fit new one, secure, fit knob, fit back panel, turn on wall switch and test.

Some countrys/states require registered electricians perform this task on electrical appliances so you must ensure you can do this legally before you start and take the relevant safety precautions and don't electrocute yourself.

Upper oven broiler element broken. Need to remove and replace


Yes you can replace it yourself. Make sure the breaker is off or the oven is un-plugged. When elements fail and burn out they will not stop until they have burned out completely.
The elements in this stove are simply held in place by a couple of quarter in head screws and the wires that connect to them are the push on connector type. There may be a support bar as well that you will need to remove as well to get the element out.
You can do this!
Good luck!

I have a 3U600W oven purchased 13/07/04 in the last 5months i have had to replace small element, grill element and now the large element. Is this normal for such a young oven with little use?? Im not happy...


I'm afraid this is quite normal- I have been repairing Simpson ovens for a long time, and unfortunately quality is not what it used to be (goes for most manufacturers-not just Simpson!!). Elements are not a moving part and don't "wear out" as such, how long they last depends on manufacturing quality and a bit of luck. An element in your oven is basically the same as a light bulb in your house- some last for a long time, others seem to never need changing. Look out- the element controller will need changing next- mark my words!!

Simpson 2001 series upright electric stove oven does not get hot only gets warm


It could be the oven element (behind the cover plate in the back of the oven), or the fan not blowing the heat into the oven.
