Thermostat or Heating Element?

The light is on, I've got power, the fan is working - the oven just wont heat up. How do I check if the Heating Element is recieving power to ensure it's not the Thermostat that's the problem?

    Oven appeared normal but not heating up - is it a Thermostat or Element problem.



    The simplest approach is to check the element first - this can be done leaving the unit in its built in housing and is relatively easy to do.



    Isolate power supplly, remove oven door (for cleaning), remove cover to fan and element - 6 screws. Element and fan exposed. Remove 3 element fixing screws. The element and connections can be drawn into the oven space.



    Disconnect the electrical connections - pull connectors off with care - and check the continuity of the element with a test meter also check the resistance between the element and the element fixing plate. The continuity resistance will be in the order of 25 ohms, The resistance to the fixing plate should be infinity. Any significant variation to this assume element faulty.



    If these test values are ok then the thermostat is suspect - a big job - call service engineer or write up the next solution!

SMEG OVEN BRAND NEW WON'T HEAT


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
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

My omega europa oven is not heating up .grill fan


Sounds like a faulty fan oven element. To replace: Disconnect from power (usually easiest to switch off at fuse box). Remove racks etc from inside oven. Remove rear panel inside oven- four screws. You will now see a heating element that goes around the fan- often you see blow mark on element. You need to remove the back panel of oven to access the nuts that hold element in- two nuts, undo nuts, remove wiring from element. New element available from any good appliance repair shop. Reverse procedure to refit. Happy fixing!!

AEG OVEN FAN WORKS TEMP LIGHT SOMETIMES NO HEAT IS


If the fan and light are working it points to a faulty heating element.

However the only sure way is to test both with a multimeter.



With the power off, check the element for resistance (ohms) if there is no reading the element is open circuit i.e failed and will need to be replaced.

I you are getting any reading on the element, it should be ok.

Then check the thermostat circuit out with the 'stat 'on,' again if no reading the 'stat is faulty.

Main fan oven not heating


If the light and the fan are working then it is the heating element that has failed. You need to replace it.

Its not a difficult job but you have to take the back off the oven. The heating element is usually in a circular shape around the fan housing.

You have to disconnect the wires to the heater and remove the retaining screws, fit the new heater and reconnect. Remember to switch off the power before starting work
