Do a ohm reading on the element to see if it is not burnt out ...disconnect at least one of the leads to it before you test it so as not to get feed back through the system. if that is good them the control is bad the voltage your getting may be back feeding thought the circuit. unplug before you do the ohm test!!!

Miele 310 oven griller works but not the oven. why?


Remember that some parts of a 240 volt stove require two live wires and most of the controls or elements being only 120 volts require just one live wire. Hence the double pole 40 amp breaker must have tripped but does not appear tripped. Just turn it off and back on to reset

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.

Electrolux EOU5330X Ultrafan Electric Double Oven -


Sounds to me like the lower element shorted and tripped the breaker as it burned out. If you're handy at electrical troubleshooting that's where I'd start - comparing ohmmeter readings between the bad element and the one that works.

A wire short to the chassis would have a similar set of symptoms and be easier to find and fix.

Beyond that, you need a service tech.

When using the oven the electicity tripped; after resetting the breaker the oven does not appear to get hot; however the grill works, the light works and the fan works what could be the problem?


Sounds like the oven element has gone. When these elements go they often short against the outside casing of the element which is earthed (or should be). This trips the main trip switch in the house. Having tripped and cooled down, the element is now broken inside & won't heat up. Usually 2 screws to remove, either inside oven or outside at back. Element usually taken out thro oven. Take it & cooker info to your dealer & ask for replacement. Shouldn't cost much.

Hi. My oven doesn't heat up after I've used oven pride on it. It's a New World DF 90 make. Everything else works, the fan, grill and hobs, but not the oven itself.


Unfortunately, it sounds like your heating element broke. Suggest using an ohm meter to make sure of that before you replace.

The good news is that element is pretty easy to replace and not very expensive either. Just make sure to trip the circuit breaker BEFORE you attempt the remove and replace.

After I cleaned my ovens the top one doesn't heat anymore. I was told that the circuit fuse button has to be reset. We can't locate it. Can you please help? The model umber is: Thermador SCD302TP


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

To address your post, looking for an over-temp cut-out tripped. Here`s what and where to look for for this,

Fortunately if it is tripped, they are the manual reset type and are accessible behind the black grill/vent just above the lower door ( just below upper door) next to the lock latch assembly.

**Turn off the 40amp breaker at your service panel or sub-panel in the home before attempting any service...safety first**

With the power off, you should be able to remove the grill and push the red button in the center of the thermostat and that should fix your problem...as shown here,

If indeed the hi-limit is tripped you`ll know immediately because you`ll feel it click as you push it down. It will look like the image below...

Other than that if you call in a pro, I'd suggest you be sure they are an authorized B/S/H/ service provider ( B/S/H/ is the parent company for Bosch, Thermador, Gaggenau, Siemens products ).

Hope that answers your question and gets you back up and operating. Good luck.


Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Oven not working - rest of appliance fine


It is most likely that the oven heating element has failed and will need to be replaced.

This not an overly expensive part to have replaced and should be much less than the cost of buying a new oven although you would need to compare actual costs in your area.
