Open Question

I have a Rival Toaster Oven Model T0450. I have only turned this on 3 or 4 times because the 3rd time I used it a flame cames up from the little medal bar that is under the heating eliment. Luckly I was there when it first happened to turn off the unit imediately. I have tried since to clean the medal but whenever I turn it on the flame pops up again. Please advise what I should do.

SOURCE: Thermador Oven won't heat after running self-cleaning cycle

I also had this problem about 11 years ago. A repair person came, pulled the oven out about 6 inches and inserted a pointed tool (an awl or skewer works great) and reset the oven. He then tried to charge me for this!! On my oven it just looks like a tiny hole. It works every time! And yes, my oven never works again after I clean it without doing this. Good luck.

SOURCE: oven won't heat

I have EXACTLY the same problem, occured today 9/25/07. Model RBS305PDQ16. At least I know I am not crazy... You know when Ronald Regan was President the CIA analysts assured him that the Soviet Bloc was ready to crumble because the people were constatly complaining that "nothing seened to work anymore." ...must have included ovens...

SOURCE: F-3 signal on Jenn-Air SVE47600, grill-range, self-cleaning convection oven

The F3 means there is something wrong in the sensor circuit, sensor/wiring/clock. F3 Problem: Shorted or open oven temperature sensor (RTD): Solution: Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.

SOURCE: GE Profile F7 Error Code

I'm not sure what your problem is, but I have the same one. My stainless steel glass top model ?? is beeping all the time with error f7 on all the 4 tem control readouts. I'm guessing this is your problem as well. By turning the temp knobs it will stop, but sometimes restarts later for no reason. Other sites mention a ribbon cable on the touch controls (if yours has it, mine does ) that must be cleaned with rubbing alcohol. You turn off the power, and after unlocking the cable you clean the contacts with an easer and a q-tip w/rubbing alcohol. I don't know if this works but I might try it as the beeping is driving me crazy! The service techs will try and sell you about $450 in parts to fix the problem. This problem apparently has plagued these units for almost 10 years. Seems heat makes the cable get shorts at the contacts.

I HAVE NOT TRIED THIS YET so beware, but I had a short in my microwave and the site helped me fix a $500 control board for about 15 cents ( jumped a short on the board with a small wire!) Hope you get your problem fixed.

SOURCE: Amana gas range bake burner does not heat

MODEL #ARG7301WW P1143323NWW
SERIAL: 9710232146

Hi Tamiw and oh Mighty Guru Text,.

I had the same problem with the oven not emitting a flame from the burner, but at the same time- the ignitor lit up and heated the oven enough to say it is 'HOT'.

It seems to be an intermittent problem';sometimes it emits a flame while other times I would wait 11 minutes with the dial set to 400 to emit flames.,

Detailed description of PROBLEM and steps I have already taken:

The Ignitor always turns on, and lights up.

1. After the initial cleaning of the burner vents with a coarse bristle cleanibng brush, I turned the oven dial on and everything seemed to be working fine. ie: ignitor turned on, blue flames came out of the burner and maintained a constant temperature.

Then,-after I had performed a "self-clean", to see if this feature would now work, it did! I used the oven for bake a few hours later......

The same symptom ocurred, the ignitor went on, but no flames were observed, YES, there was heat coming from the oven, but NO flames coming out of the burner mechanism:

The Ignitor turned on, but no "flames" were observed. Heat was given off from the glowbar, but no flames. I did NOT smell any gas, only what an inside of the oven smells like after cleaning.

From my records, I had replaced the thermostat about 4 years ago.

Today, I tried this again, and sure enough the ignitor lit up, and the burner was emitting blue flames. But when I put the "FLAME SPREADER" back, and turned the oven OFF, then on again to bake cookies, the oven didnt seem to heat up completely.

Could this be intermittent? or Could the flame spreader hamper the burner operation? (Earlier when I loosened the nut on the flame spreader the bolt broke. I tried to replace with another nut, but the bolt/screw was too short for contact.) Could this contribute to the problem? Does the flame spreader need to be tightly screwed for the burner to function correctly?

One thing I am noticing, is that it takes LONGER for the flames to come thru (than the average 90 seconds)

For example: Ten minutes ago I set the dial to 350. 5 minutes went by, and no flames, then set the dial to 450 after ten minutes oven was hot, but no flames?

I THEN SET TIMER FOR ANOTHER 5 MINUTES, AND 1 MINUTE LATER THE FLAMES TURNED ON. Total preheating time for flames to come on today = 11 minutes.

I have a "MULTIMETER" from DIGITEK Model # DS830B+ This should work to see the amperage, but I dont remember how to test it! the MAX OHMs are 2000, MA 200 Max, 500V

Can I use this to test the current? How would I do this?

Lastly, HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO CHANGE OUT THE IGNITOR> Meaning do I have to shut off the gas as well as the power circuit?

Ok, hope this helps.

Thanks again,
Callie T

How to change lower element in DeLonghi Airstream Convectio Oven

  • How to change lower element in DeLonghi Airstream Convectio Oven??

  • Preheat ovens only when necessary. With conventional ovens, keep the preheating time to a minimum. Unless you're baking breads or pastries, you may not need to preheat the oven at all.
  • Food cooks more quickly and efficiently in ovens when air can circulate freely. Don't lay foils on racks. If possible, stagger pans on upper and lower racks to improve air flow.
  • Use glass or ceramic pans in ovens. You can turn down the temperature about 25°F and cook foods just as quickly.
  • Do not open the oven door often to preview the food. Each time you open the door the oven temperature drops by 25°F. Watch the clock or use a timer instead.
  • Full-size ovens are not very efficient for cooking small- to medium-sized meals, it generally pays to use toaster ovens or microwave ovens.
  • Check to be sure the oven door gasket is tight. Adjust or replace gaskets as required.
  • If you have a self-cleaning oven, consider using the self-cleaning feature immediately after regular baking when the oven is still hot. Less energy will be required to reach the cleaning temperature. Try not to use the self-cleaning feature too often.
  • Keep range-top burners and reflectors clean; they will reflect the heat better and save energy.
  • Match the size of the pan to the heating element; more heat will get to the pan and less will be lost to the surrounding air. A 6-inch pan on a 8-inch burner will waste over 40% of the energy.
  • On electric stove-tops, use only flat-bottomed pans that make full contact with the element. A warped or rounded pan will waste most of the heat.
  • When cooking with a gas range-top burner, use moderate flame settings to conserve gas. Also make sure the pilot light is burning efficiently, with a blue flame. A yellowish flame indicates an adjustment is needed because the gas is burning inefficiently.
  • Whenever possible, use a pressure cooker. By cooking food at a higher temperature and pressure, cooking time is reduced dramatically and energy use is cut by 50-75%.

    wire brush the oven pilot light orifix flame may be lessened due to carbon buildup then when oven lights its convextion pulls the pilot flame away from thermal coupling with shuts off gas (in case wind blows it out, it will STOP the GAS FLOWING. if the pilot full size (near 3/4 inch tall) then just try to position the thermal coupling nearer the flame (not right on it)

    Lighting an old Frigidaire gas oven

    Sounds as though the pilot light in your oven went out. On the inside of the oven there should be a small hole about the size of a 50cent piece on the floor of the oven. Turn on the gas for the oven, light a matchstick or rolled up piece of paper, stick it into that hole and it should light, monitor the oven for 30 seconds to see if it starts to heat. SAFETY 1st!

    Amana gas range bake burner does not heat

    Pull the bottom of the oven off. You will see 2 to 4 screws that hold the panel on. The ignitor is under there. Look at the ignitor carefully for breaks. I say carefully as the ignitor is very easy to break.
