Hi, welcome to Just answer
How old is it ?
not sure maybe 8 yearsold
can you test the thermostat for continuity ?
how do you do that
with a multimeter
don't have one
were you able to turn the thermostat freely? was there any resistance ?
if you mean the knob on the front yes
so basically the power light is there but when you try to turn it on it won't heat and the power light goes off...the element won't even turn on and the fan will not even start...is that right ?
when i turn it on the power light doesn't come on the fan does and internal oven light element doesn't heat up
and when you turn the knob you can feel resistance...right ?
it does't feel any different than it did before it stopped working
ok..the problem seems to be with the timer control or the thermostat itself that is bad and needs replacement
the element seems to be fine
also inspect the wiring harness from the control
oven light and fan works so probably the timer control seems to be fine
as you have removed the thermostat you can just connect its three wires together, plug it back in and try to run the oven...if it works then replace the thermostat
or you can take a multimeter from someone and test the thermostat for continuity
my son is a trainee electrician he tested the power to the element there wasn't any even though it's not connected to the thermostat .what do you mean connect three wires together do you mean tapping the three together?
Yes, that is right however..as there is no power then it is the timer control that should be replaced...this will cost you around £65
where is the timer control
Check this Image this is the part I am talking about
after you pull the top off you can see this part
ok the bit with time and timer settings if this is faulty why would top oven still work
well that was the reason I told you earlier to check the thermostat(s) for continuity...anyways as you think I am not helping so I will opt out and open this to all ... so that someone else is able to help you
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thanks for your patience,
To make sure I'm reading things right, I need you to test from original.
Refit the wires to the thermostat and reassemble the machine.
When you try using it, does the temperature light on the front come on?
The fan runs and the light inside the oven works?
sorry i've not got back to you i've been at work all day i'm gong out soon i can't do anything with the oven at the moment anyway because i'm trying to cook dinner in the top oven.but to let you know when i turn oven on the power light doesn't come on the fan and interior oven light do come on as far as i can see no power gets to the element with or without the thermostat being wired in i have replaced the element with a new one.i'm coming to the point whether its easier to buy a new oven as it doesn't seem to be straight forward to mend
thanks i'll order a thermostat and see if it solves the problem i'll let you know
hi sorry its take so long got and fitted new thermostat it all works fine now thanks for your help
