Question about AEG B1180-4 Electric Single Oven
The oven will heat up as normal but after a few minutes or when it gets hot the electrics cut out the digital display will stay off (but not the gas) once cooled it will come back on. any advice on which part i should be looking to replace will be greatly appreciated.
Your heater is probably equipped with a bimetal thermal switch to prevent overheating and, if it is like most made in China now, it is defective or at least highly inaccurate. Look for a thick (4-5 mm), button-like device customarily with two terminals (apparently some have 4) and a diameter of 1.5-2.0 cm.
Bypassing it will expose you to a loss of hearth and home if the regular control circuits fail.
Rather try this; locate the device, use a metal shield to divert some of the heat which will allow it to serve its original function as a safety.
This point of failure is shared with a majority of drip coffee makers that fail way too early.
