SOURCE: My Simpson Esprit oven is not supplying power to

Check to make sure that there is 120 volts from each oven wire seperately. Together they should be putting 240 volts to the oven unit. Do you have a fuse box instead of breakers in your home? It could be that one of the two fuses is bad. The oven needs two legs of 120 volts to heat up. Usually there is no internal fuse on a stove, just on clothes dryers.

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.

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

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!!

Stove top elements on high only


Yarsu Spiros

I like you purchased one of these thinking you can trust the name simpson(pope) but after putting on a fry pan with sum saucages in and having a major fire in my kitchen, I through the heap of junk out and bought a *** oven (current technologie) howerver to answer your question you have pulled the elements and trays out to kleen them (that seems normal) but you need to make sure the element terminals are clean and so are the spring clip things they fit into, use a peice of emery cloth (not wet & dry) this should fix it

alternativly not buy this junk again and get a proper stove

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.
