Re: no heat in oven
The element may be open circuit, test it by a continuity test. the actual element is inside the metal outer surrounded by a ceramic compound -you will not be able to see any breaks hence the electrical test.

If both broiling and baking element are not heating, then
the most common fault causing the problem is a defective temperature
The probe is located inside the oven cavity.
On most ovens there is only one temperature sensor, connected in line
on the circuit from electroning oven control to baking and broiling
When the probe fails, it will affect both baking and broiling function.
temperature probe is tested reching the probe, cutting or disconnecting
its wiring, and testing the probe at room temperature, with a
multimeter set on impedance at Rx1. If the multimeter reads no
continuity (circuit open), then the probe must be replaced.
the temperature probe is good, then parts that may be responsible for
the fault are oven electronic control and wiring. Having both elements
failing at the same time would be rather unusual.
If only one element is failing, then the fault is probably the element. In that case you can test the element removing it from the cavity, and testing Ohms on the element. If circuit is open , then the element must be replaced.
If you are certain that the element is o/k, and it is not heating, then thwere are 2 possibilitues.
1- the oven thermostat could be faulty, whereby it is giving a feed to the element.
2-some ovens have a fan only setting, as well as heat and fan, make sure that it is not on a fan only setting.
Hope this helps.
the bulbs are screw fit normally
fan oven element video.1, If the fan motor . in the
back of the oven is going round and the temperature light is on (normally
little red light), but there is no heat then you will probably need a new oven
element, these are generally very easy to fit and readily available from our
website these can be tested with a electric meter. To gain access to the NEFFelement .you will
have to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you will see
the fan and element,. if you
look closely at the element .you will
probably see a small hole burnt in it where it has blown. Sometimes however
there is no evidence of a fault but the elementis open circuit ie:
broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Some
elements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nuts
from the rear of the machine. 2, If your NEFF fan
oven is getting warm but takes a very long time to cook or is burning the food
more on one side than the other, then you need to check if your oven fan motoris working you will
see the blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fan motoris not blowing the heat into the oven then
you need To replace the oven fan motoris a little more
expensive and a bit more involved. 3. If you have the opposite problem ie: your oven is over heating
and burning everything then you will need to replace your NEFF oven thermostat 4, A quite common and easily overlooked answer is if your NEFF oven is not working at all ie: no
heat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timerinto AUTO mode,
simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again. For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO
If the fan is working o/k, but there is no heat, then it is more than likely the element that has failed again.
The fact that you had it replaced a year ago, does not mean tha it will last a long tiime, it is quite common for them to fail in a relatively short space of time.
Take my advice and fit a new element.
