SOURCE: Electric Oven doen't heat

cdkd, there should be a TC0, on the back of the oven. Thermal cut out. You want to check to see if it is open. You will have to pull the oven out enough that you can remove the back panel cover and check it. The lower and upper oven should have one. It's a very cheap part to replace. If this TCO fails, no heat. Check this first before buying a new board. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Oven heating element

Hello rvready
Welcome,


You said, We have an OLD (1950-60) Frigidaire wall oven, model # RBG-94. Bottom heating element has gone out. Oven is still in good shape so we'd like to be able to find an element replacement, but have had no luck finding one.

unfortunately,
I am not able to find this part either.
Anywhere. This oven is to old for parts. But most important is that it is causing you high utility rates!
Today's appliances save you the arm and the leg that such an old oven is costing you.
You have no idea how it is sucking your money out of your pocket!
It is unfortunate, that no one told you about this years ago!
You payed for more than one oven with your utility bill if you had it since it was new. My advice is do not put good money into bad!
Shop for a new one and see your bills go down.
my wife was telling me to replace the air and furnace for 7 years and I said, it's not broken. But it was over 20 years old. She was right, cause the new one saved me $100. a month!
That means I threw away $7000. in 6 years with my old world attitude.
Yes I am old fashion and always fix it!
But after 25 years of marriage. i finally realized she is a good evaluator and I was a fool to not appreciate her gift for all these years! And out tons more money than I told you about!

Hope I saved you some bucks with my real life stories!
Don't tell your wife!!!

I honestly believe you are right. you should be able to wiggle it back and forth and pull it out.

I have a westinghouse wall oven, and the griller is not working. Are they easy to repair or do I require the services of a technician. Many thanks bernie


While they aren't that difficult to repair if you know something about appliances and are somewhat handy, you do need a multimeter to check whether the switch is the problem or if it is the element, which means you will me working with 220V that could ruin your entire day if you make a mistake.

The lower heating element on our Thermador oven arced and snapped in two. I'd like to replace it myself. Just wondering if the new heating element can just be snapped into place with minimum expertise,...


Hi,
Most elements are very easy to remove and replace....there are a few clips holding them in place and a screw to hold the wire at each end of the element.
MAKE SURE to turn the power off before attempting the replacement...

I need the bottom heating element in an old westinghouse wall oven. the model # is OG25HXO


I am not certain what geographic region you are in but... Bake elements are often generic between brands. The key is to match up voltage, wattage, size, bends and terminals. Here are 2 pages of westing house elements:

http://www.partselect.com/PartSearchWizard.aspx?Appliance=Range+%2f+Stove+%2f+Oven&Brand=Westinghouse&PartType=Element+or+Burner&Electrical=Yes

I tried searching using OG25HXO with little success even on westinghouse sites US and AU.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

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.
