If there is no heating please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is faulty, the temperature cut off is faulty or the main capacitor is short. It is also quite possible that insect can get into the oven and create soft spots. When you switch on these will create a short and make the voltage jump and in the long run damage the magnetron.
So Remove cover after disconnecting , check for dirt/moisture in the cabin, if so wipe clean and dry, check the magnetron and area clean and use an jet air to clean off.
Make sure that the program controller is working if not check power - step down supply, the pads are responding- if not faulty pads- or the door switches, if contact is not through the microwave will not work.

Now keeping clear of the microwave, switch on, use a cup of water inside to test.
If you notice any sparks shut off as the magnetron or the main HT capacitor can be faulty. replace with same type.
If there is heating without any issues, you can use the microwave safely

All the lights and buttons work/sound on control panel. Broiler oven works but baking element not working. Replaced baking element with new, but still doesn't work. Convection fan works, light works,...


Manufacture and model would be nice ohm out the bake element might be open some are in the oven cavity others are hidden below the lower oven plate and have to check from the rear by removing back cover in the bake mode the broil element element cycles on/off thats why you have some heat.

I got a doble oven used and everithing works but dosent heat


If gas replace the bottem igniter. Two crews inside of oven on each side in back of bottem plate. Then pull back some left and pull out .then take nut off heat plate and u well see the igniter.its ether round or box looken one .there is two 1/4 screws holding it on .sometimes its a pain getting of and u well have to twist and break one or both off and put a bigger one in place of it .then look at end of connector and see if its the same if not cute the old one and put it on the new one .and then install new one on the same aY old one came off ..put first u can check the igniter after u can open the heat plate by ether doing a con check or turn on oven and see if it glows bright red . If it does turn bright red how long it takes to light oven .it shouldn't take any longer then 45 sec or less to light.if takes longer its bad.replace it .because your temp well be off due to the igniter taking to long to lite.and the power well shut off on the igniter and well not light again ..if u have now power(120 v ) on that igniter when u turn on the oven .then ether your gas valve is bad or your the part u turn on the oven with is bad .

Just moved, can not get stoves double oven to work light and fan comes on both ovens but no heat


On the main oven, does the circulating fan at the back of the oven start to rotate when you switch it on and does the fan oven neon illuminate as well.
For the top oven, the heating element is not very big so the oven takes a long time to warm up. Does the top oven neon illuminate when you switch this on as well?

GE Microwave Model JKP85 Plate does not rotate


Usually this is a bad turntable drive motor in the floor of the microwave but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance.

Smeg SNZ91MFX1 Fan heating not working


This tutorial will show you how to check your Smeg element and how to replace your Smeg cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
  1. Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Smeg manual.
  2. If your Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
  3. When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.
