Symptoms= Oven light ok, thermostat light ok, oven not heating at all or to a low heat. May also have tripped the circuit breaker on the switchboard
Probably the element
Switch off power to the oven at switchboard
Open the oven door just a little and pull the door up to remove it.
Lift the panel at the oven back wall over the fan.
See the coiled element, you may already see a defect in the surface of the element.
Remove the screw at the base of the coil
With a small sharp screwdriver flip out the clip on each side of the element at the top
Feed the element out of the holes
Note that the green wire is attached to the frame of the element and the red wire to the core of the element.
The other side of the element may have two white wires
Disconnect all these wires, maybe using a pliers.
You can check this element with a simply multimeter, buy a new element and refit opposite to removal

Replace fuse in an old Westinghouse 229 fan-forced oven.


Not sure, but if you're lucky the stove will have a schematic inside. Take the back off, see if one is glued to the back or in an envelope. If back is 2 pieces try top behind controls first. Unplug 1st!

To replace element in westinghouse fan forced oven.do i need to remove oven from wall


Hello,

Usually the convection element is inside of the fan housing on the back wall of the oven. If it isn't there reply with exact model# and i'll look at the parts breakdown and see where it is on your model

I need to replace the element on my westinghouse freestyle 808 oven . where can i order one how do i change the element? thanx


pull the unit out of the housing and rest on a suitable work bench. turn off the power and remove the rear cover you will see the grill element, ring element and the bottom element. depending on whcih one has blown they are relatively straight forward to replace.
as for where to purchase one depends on what country and area you live in. best to search for someone local on line

What wire goes where for my Westinghouse Freestyle elements?


oven wiring has the same conventions as house wiring.
green = earth, outside coating
brown or white = one of core ends
black = the other end

Electric westinghouse freestyle oven not working properly. Fan & internal light working but no heat.Red Temp light not working when turned on either. Any tips?!


This might be a couple of things:
  • Check circuit breakers...there are two that control the oven in tandem. Is one blown open? Turn both off and then on.
  • Check all wiring to the unit. You may have an open wire anywhere in the line including at the terminals in the oven. Make sure breakers are off to do this and all below.
  • Remove the element and check for resistance. There should be some. Also check the element terminals and the plug in the oven for corrosion while you're at it.
  • None of those: the thermostat or over temp sensor might be bad. Find these by looking at the wiring diagram on the back of the stove and tracing out the wiring.
  • Electronics package. Replace if none of the above.

in the owners manual with most of the ovens it will tell you haow that you can vary the temprature of the thermastat 50 degrees up or down but not 100 you can try that and if it does not fix the issue then you will have to replace the oven sensor
