Check the fan spacing from the back wall. I think that model should be about 3/4" between the back of the fan and the back of the oven wall. That will probably put it about an 1/8th to 1/4 inch from teh baffle in front of the fan. Also make sure the baffle is installed correctly.

I have a New World Double oven, dual fuel range cooker - NW 90DFD0 The main oven isn't heating up.

Hello Ally;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You may not have a problem. Normally your oven will rise about 40 degrees F. above the set temperature and then shut down, until the oven temperature falls 40 degrees F. below the set temperature, then the oven turns back on.

Your oven temperature is controlled by you oven thermocouple.

You also have a high temperature limit switch, which turns the fan on when you go too far above the set temperature to vent the oven. This may be bad.

Set to 'fan' and 180 degrees, the oven 'overtemperatured' to the extent that I could see a glow of the elements via the fan recess

Hello John;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

There is no thermal cut off.

There are only 3 controlling components:

1.) Your heating element - I your heating element glows then this component is probably good. Just to be on the safe side, inspect the two contacts at the back wall for corrosion.

2.) Your oven thermocouple - Remove your oven thermocouple and Ohm it out. You should get a reading between 1000 - 1100 Ohms if it is good.

3.) Your oven Control - If the two above components check out as good then you have a bad oven control. If you have a control board type oven control - turn the power off at your breaker box for about 10 minutes and then turn it back on. It is rare, but sometimes you can reboot the board.

I have chef EGC651S oven with separate grill. On fan assist oven only heats up to a certaain temp and doesnt get any hotter what could be the reason for this

Probably thermostat problem, although some chance you have one side of a 220vac breaker not working. In otherwords oven heating element is "getting" half of the required power. Call electrician!

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.

Hi, I only just installed Baumatic single built in fan oven (B0616SS). I did as instructed and left on for 39 - 40 minutes at max 250 temp. I noticed that the oven door was very hot to touch, too hot! This...

Hello- This is a brand new model, but it works the same as the rest. Heat is produced by the elements. The fan has an element that glows when heating the air. --Convection oven glass gets hotter than normal fanless models.-- This is all normal operation of the oven.  To ensure full life of oven, avoid using the 'self-clean' feature. Techs call this the 'self-destruct' cycle. Please reply to this post if info is helpful- have more if needed- Thanks- Ed

I have a frigidaire oven model # PLEB30S8CCB won't get above 290

The coils should glow red when working. If the lower (bake) element does not glow it may be burnt out. Some ovens cycle the bake and broil elements during preheat and that mey be why you are getting some heat.

Whrilpool electric range-oven appears hotter on left side

Hello
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

This probably means you have a defective heating element that does not heat evenly through out the length of the element!
