Sounds like your element might be blown and shorting. Switch the appliance OFF. You should be able to remove the element without removing the oven. Open the door and remove the back panel, normally 4 screws. This will expose the element. Then it should be 3 or so screws holding the element to the frame, remove these and slowly pull the element towards you carefully, then remove the 2 wires from behind and make sure they don't fall back into the oven as you will need to remove the back panel to get them. Then reverse process to install new element. Hope this helps.

Miele 212 oven does not work. We have a Miele oven that does not work anymore. 220V gets to the oven and then nothing happens, no lights, no display, nothing... Advise anyone?


Nothing Works, or the Oven / Range / Stovetop Works Only At Certain Times:
1.Home breaker flipped or the fuse blown?Possibly an electrical surge has flipped the breaker. Check your breaker or fuse box and replace or reset as necessary.
2.Power cord plugged in?Grab the plug and wiggle to determine a good connection.
3.Power cord damage?Damaged rubber with wires showing through or the wire is being pinched can cause issues. Electrical tape is acceptable for covering damaged wires.
4.Aclicking sound could be something wrong with a relay. Check for any loose connections around the main control board on your oven. The click you hear is a relay losing power and switching back on. If the clock resets then something is causing power interruptions to the board.

6.Even a bad relay door switch will hinder your oven from operating.

If your oven has internal fuses, a wiring or component problem could have caused a fuse to blow. A blown fuse is an indication that a component has shorted or failed, and the problem will need to be corrected. Most ovens that use fuses will have an indication of the circuits that are affected by a particular fuse. If an oven fuse has blown, then you should inspect the oven element and the associated wiring to determine the cause before replacing the fuse.

Oven light blew and now no power to the oven.


If you are not knowledgable in electricity, call for service.
This is an electrical short at the light, I have seen this before.
The wiring for the light has grounded to the oven. This causes the main fuse to blow. You will need to fix the short first. Then reset the main fuse/replace.
In the case of the wall oven, you may have to remove the oven to fix it properly. Depending on the model and where the short is.

When i turn electric oven on the house fuses blow no fan no heat


If this is a new oven, look at the plate on the oven or in the user manuel. It should show the input amperage. Then check the amperage number on the fuse. If the fuse number is lower, that is the problem. To fix it will not be easy. The oven circut needs to be rewired with heavyer gage wire and a larger capicity fuse. This could get expensive.
If this problem is on an existing oven, chances are there is a wiring or switch problem. If you are not familier with electricity here is my recommendation.STOP! and call an electrition. the chances are high that if you try to fix this on your own you may be electrocuted or you may burn your house down.

Oven blows main switch


There is a short circuit between the lower oven control and the lower element.
Disconnect the lower element. Put electrical tape on the loose terminals and turn the lower oven on.
If it does not blow, replace the lower element with a new element.
If it does blow, Check the wiring to the lower element for continuity to the frame of the range.
If you get continuity replace the damaged wire..
Finally, check the control knob switch for continuity to ground on the frame of the oven.

Electrical fault on SE250Xuk


It may be something as simple as a crossed or frayed wire. This does not necessarily mean major repairs. Since it is electric, UNPLUG the oven from the wall. Then, take the burner rings out and lift the stove top. You should be able to lift it from the front edge, since it is hinged at the back.
Check the wires under the burner. If these wires are in good shape and the connections are solid, move the stove out from the wall. Remove the back sheet metal panel completely.
Once again, check the wires running the entire length. Make sure all wires running from the knob console to the rest of the oven are not frayed or missing the insulation coating and that the connections are complete and not loose.
If you find frays, some electrical tape should fix it just fine. Loose connections can usually be crimped with a pliers, or if it's a loose electrical connector type connection with a screw, you can remove the connector head and wrap bare wire around the screw, then tighten it down to secure.

If you find nothing wrong when you open it and inspect the wires, then it is possible it needs major repairs. If you are getting a burning smell from ANY electrical appliance, please leave it unplugged until you get it fixed. Nobody likes a house fire in the middle of the night.

Recently wired a double oven with isolator switch


Hi, there's definitely a electrical problem.
First, use the bottom oven only for about 15 minutes and check if it doesn't trip.
Second, use just the grill (top oven) for about 15 minutes and check if it doesn't trip.
The reason is sometimes grill elements are corroded and only trip after a few minutes.
Also, if both ovens work ok on their own, then it could be your fuse box not strong enough, or the isolator switch fuse be only 13amp. If your oven is more than 3Kw (check the label on the door for info) then you need a 30amp fuse to hold when both ovens are on.
Cheers

Bottom oven not working


A tripped breaker or blown fuse on an electric oven or cook-top, combined with an element that has stopped working, is usually a sign of a shorted, then blown (if the fuse or breaker no longer fail) element.

If you know how to use an ohmeter, you can pull the element, disconnect the wires from each end, then measure the resistance between each end of the element, and each element to the outer sheath.

A good element has just a few ohms of resistance between the wire connection points, and infinite resistance from the wire connection points to the outer sheath. Any readings other than that means the element is bad and need's to be replaced.
