I have a Simpson Evolution 906 Electric Wall Oven that continually switches off after being on for a short time...say 5 minutes.It turns the safety switch off on our electrical box. My husband opened the back of the oven up and discovered Dark Burn Markings around the wiring which connects to the oven light which broke sometime ago and we have not been able to replace it as yet. Would love to kinow if this is a major problem or is it as simple as just replacing the bulb.
You must get someone who understands electrical problems to look at it as this light is at full mains voltage, if the wires are burned then they must be replaced with ones that are silicon covered because of the heat and if a connector is used then this must be made of a ceramic material again because of the heat

Yes. Many of these have a display thermal fuse that is part of the wiring harness that connects to the board... it should have continuity. WP4451042. Almost all models have what is called the "oven shut-down thermal fuse" which is on the back of the machine ( you have to pull it out of the wall and remove the back panel) and looks like this

When baking or cooking common foods in your oven, it is important that the oven heats to the proper temperature. Otherwise, the food in your oven could become over- or undercooked. The electric ovens are able to be calibrated if only slightly off, however, if the temperature is 25 degrees off or more, you should replace the oven sensor. The oven sensor is the device in the oven the detects the temperature. The control board increases or decreases the oven temperature, depending on the oven sensor reading. Before calling a repair technician, attempt to calibrate your oven or change the oven sensor.
1 Turn on the oven and set the temperature to a medium-heat setting, such as 350 degrees.
2 Allow the oven to preheat and then open the door and insert the oven thermometer.
3 Allow the oven thermometer to remain in the oven for a few minutes and the look at the temperature reading, comparing it to the oven temperature setting.
4 Recalibrate the oven if the temperature is only slightly off, or replace the oven sensor if the temperature is greatly off, such as 25 degrees or more.
Calibrating the Oven
1 Turn off the oven to prior to calibrating. 2 Press and hold the "Bake" button until the calibration settings are displayed on the display.
3 Use the arrow buttons or "+" and "-" buttons to adjust the temperature the number of degrees that the oven is out of calibration.
4 Press the "Start" button to save the calibration settings.
Replacing the Oven Sensor
1 Unplug the oven from the wall or cut the power to the oven in your breaker panel.
2 Open the oven door and remove the oven racks.
3 Locate the oven sensor, located at the top-center of the rear oven wall.
4 Remove the mounting screw securing the oven sensor to the wall and then pull the oven sensor away from the wall.
5 Remove the cable connected to the terminal on the rear of the oven sensor and then discard the oven sensor.
6 Connect the cable to the terminal on the new oven sensor and then reposition the oven sensor and secure it using the mounting screw.
7 Replace the oven racks and then restore power to the oven.
Can you add a full model number? I am having trouble finding the manual from the information given. From other oven manuals from simpson, it sounds like the clock is programmable when power is first supplied, so unplug the unit, wait a few minutes, and plug it back in. Then press the - and + buttons to set the time. 5 seconds after the last change the time will be set.
I have just replaced mine & had the same problem. I couldnt remove the cover. I found that I just couldnt grip the cover well enough. I got some rubber washing up gloves & used them to grip the cover. It was still tight but it un skrewd quite easy this way.
