The brackets are usually made of heat resistant plastic, or bakalite, you can search for parts at www.whitegoods.co.uk but you will need model and serial number, a word of caution, the microwave oven may have to be dismanteled to fix new element holders, you can still get shocks from them even though the mains power has been disconnected, depending on the age of the appliance and availability of parts, it may be a replacement is required.
Hope this has been helpful

While cleaning oven I lifted bottom element heard a pop. Now neither the stove or oven will not come on. The indicator lights do not light up either.


The "pop" was the sound of the heating element shorting to ground so naturally nothing works now.

My neff b1421 does not heat up and has left a "chalky dust" substance in the oven?


The dust is from where the ring element has blown. remove the back panel 4-6 torx 20 screws and the blow on the element should be pretty obvious, part no is 499003. can be replace from inside the unit, one screw on the right of the ring and two on the holding bracket. Obviously, isolate from mains, be careful when you remove the element at the bracket side, so as not to let the connection wires drop into the back cavity or you will have to remove the whole oven and back of the oven to retrieve them. One tag on each prong of the element (doesn't matter which way round they go)
Best of luck

My GE JGBP30 takes a long time to get up to temperature and then during baking will not hold it. If I set it to 350 for example, it takes about 15-20 minutes, then the control panel beeps telling me that...


i looked up your model and it has an ignitor in it not an element because it's gas,you could have a bad ignitor,even though it will lite it's not liting when it should,remove the racks and the bottom floor,turn on the oven and set it for 350,you'll see the ignitor start to glow orange and the flame should lite within 40 to 60 seconds,if it doesn't change out the ignitor.part number WB2X9154
and depending on where you buy it it could cost 70 to 90 dollars.the easiest way to do this is to remove the tube that the ignitor is attached to,you'll see a 1/4 inch screw in the front holding the tube in place,remove it and with a pair of plyers bend the rear metal bracket up enough so you can lift the tube out,look at it before you remove it so you will reinstall it correctly,there's a pin that sticks out in the top back of the tube so when you slide the tube back in you have to line it up onto the bottom part on the gas valve and then slide the pin in,then you have to bend the bracket back down,one more tip,wet a paper towel and then wet the threads on the screws that hold the ignitor on,if you don't most of the time the screws strip out.if the ignitor is starting fine you could have a bad thermostat but i would start by checking the ignitor first then go from there.good luck and let me know if you need any more help.

I have a Fridgidaire Model # PLEB30S8CCC wall oven. The broiler works fine. The oven is very slow to heat up, 20 minutes to reach 250. I checked the lower element with a omp meter it read 20. Is that...


Hello there and than you for choosing Fixya
If your oven does not heat, does not heat enough or does not broil, a common cause is a burned out heating element. There are two elements, the baking element on the floor of the oven and the broiling element on the ceiling of the oven. They are about the diameter of a pencil and typically supported by metal stand-offs.
This easiest test you can do is to turn on the oven and observe the heating element. If it glows red, the element is working. When baking, the broiling element may come on to assist with preheating or to maintain the oven temperature. When set to bake, if the broiler comes on, but the baking element does not, the likely cause is a burned out baking element.
When set to broil, the broil element should glow red, but the bake element typically is not used. If the broiler does not glow, it is likely a burned out heating element.
There are other possible causes of these symptoms, refer to our diagnostic page for some other possibilities.
To test the heating element using a multimeter, follow the steps provided below.
  1. Unplug the oven or turn off the power at the breaker or fuse box.
  2. Follow the heating element back to where it goes through the wall of the oven. Remove the bracket that secures the element in place.
  3. Unscrew or unfasten any stand-off supports that secure the element to the oven.
  4. Pull the element part way out to expose the oven's wiring connected the element.
  5. Label the wires and secure them in place so they do not fall back into the cavity.
  6. Disconnect the wires from the element.
  7. Using a multimeter set to x1, touch one probe to each of the element contacts. Expect resistance in the range of 20 to 40 ohms. Infinite or kilo-ohm resistance usually indicates a bad element and it should be replaced.
  8. If the element tests okay, reconnect the wires, slip them back into the cavity and resecure the element.

F2 low temp


The most common probem is burned wires going to the heater on the top of the oven cavity. Typically you will see the coating on the wire close to the heater all cracked and bare. You can usually just cut the wire back an inch and pull some slack up and reconnect the wire and you will be good. In some cases the wire will be burned to much and the whole wire will need to be changed. Any oven repair shop will sell you these high temp wires. DO NOT use regular wires they MUST be high temp rated.

Here is some other things to check if the heater wires look good.

COMPONENTS
IR Element
The IR element - a dual coil type heater - is located
in the bottom of the oven cavity. The first coil is the
heating coil. The second is the IR thermocouple
wire. The heating coil outputs 3000 watts at 208
VAC. The heating coil's resistance is 14.4 ohms at
room temperature.
The thermocouple coil is a Type K thermocouple
with a resistance of approximately 20 ohms at the
splices located approximately 6 inches from the
heater and 40 ohms measured at the extension wires
at the I/O control board.
The IR element is controlled via the K5 solid state
relay and the IR thermocouple via the I/O control
board.

Also try this

1. Verify the high-limit thermostat is not tripped.
o If high-limit is tripped, reset and allow the oven to warm up.
o If high-limit is not tripped, follow the instructions below.
High-limit thermostat is not tripped.
Place a small water load in a microwave/heat-resistant container
(approx. 275 ml) in the oven and place the oven in TEST MODE. Press
the MGTRON key to actuate the microwave. While holding down the
MGTRON key, watch the CC and IR temperatures. If either temperature
bounces substantially, there may be a noise (EMI) problem.
To correct this problem, examine the wire routing for each
thermocouple wire. If the wires are routed near any high voltage
components such as the magnetron or high voltage transformers, reroute
the wires. If this does not correct the problem, verify that both
magnetrons are securely mounted.

Good Luck

The oven does'nt seem to be able to heat up above 150, the fan is working, the bottem half of the oven does'nt seem to heating up. Is this fixable or do i need a new oven?


Hi.

If the part that is not heating is only the bottom element, and the top element is heating regularly, then you may need to replace the lower element.
Before replacement the element can be tested removing it from the cavity and reading Ohms at the element terminals, with a multimeter set at Rx1. Disconnect power before removing the element.

If both baking and broiling element do not heath above a certain temperature instead, then the part to be replaced is the temperature probe, still located inside the oven cavity.

Regards.

Replacing heat elements in oven


To replace oven heat element follow the steps below carefully
Turn off the power to the oven at the breaker box.
  • Step 2 Take out the screws holding the element bracket in place. These will be on the back wall of the oven, or sometimes on the top.
  • Step 3 Pull the element toward you a little bit until you see the wires behind it.
  • Step 4 Unscrew the leads and take the bad element out.
  • Step 5 Hold the new element up while you attach the wires to it. Don't stretch the wires any more than you have to.
  • Step 6 Line up the element while tucking the wires back in. Be sure not to pinch the wires between the bracket and the back wall.
  • Step 7 Fasten the brackets, making sure they're tight.
  • Step 8 Restore power to the appliance.
  • basically to install the elements , place it in the same position as the old one. Connect it the same way the old one was connected, using the same screws to hold it in place. Just about all the other components of an electric range or oven

    The baking element in the oven does not appear to be working


    HI.I would test to confirm the actual issue. This easiest test you can do is to turn on the oven and observe the heating element. If it glows red, the element is working. When baking, the broiling element may come on to assist with preheating or to maintain the oven temperature. When set to bake, if the broiler comes on, but the baking element does not, the likely cause is a burned out baking element.When set to broil, the broil element should glow red, but the bake element typically is not used. If the broiler does not glow, it is likely a burned out heating element.


    Use This procedure below to confirm the failure.

    With a multimeter, use these steps below to physically test for element functions.

    1. Unplug the oven or turn off the power at the breaker or fuse box.

    2.Follow the heating element back to where it goes through the wall of the oven. Remove the bracket that secures the element in place.

    3. Unscrew or unfasten any stand-off supports that secure the element to the oven.

    4.Pull the element part way out to expose the oven's wiring connected the element.

    5.Label the wires and secure them in place so they do not fall back into the cavity.

    6.Disconnect the wires from the element.

    7.Using a multimeter set to x1, touch one probe to each of the element contacts. Expect resistance in the range of 20 to 40 ohms. Infinite or kilo-ohm resistance usually indicates a bad element and it should be replaced.

    8.If the element tests okay, reconnect the wires, slip them back into the cavity and re-secure the element.
