Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Yes the fan comes on but no heat at all
Sorry did you get my last reply?
What is the model number of the oven? Is it gas or electric?
Model no is HB90557GB/05. Its electric
Do you have a multi-meter and do you know how to use it?
I'm not sure what a multi-meter is! The oven works off a single socket fitted purposely for the oven. The top half of the oven/grill is still working, so only the bottom half (full oven) is not heating up
I see. A multi-meter is a tool that is used for testing voltages. We could be dealing with a failed element. I am looking for the wiring diagram of the oven to confirm. I will be a couple more minutes....ok?
yes that's fine. thanks
Do you have another bulb that you can put in the socket to see if it lights? I suspect that the element is faulty but wonder about the light not working also.
I am not at home, so will not be able to look until this evening. Can I continue the chat tomorrow or can an engineer come out to check the appliance? I no longer have a guarantee so understand that I will have to pay an additional call out charge. Can you advise?
I think that since there is not a way that we can really test the voltages to confirm what the issue is, that would be what I would recommend. The best I can offer is that if you confirm that the power is on and no fault is displayed I can only suggest what it may be so that you can be prepared for when calling someone out. Inspect the element in the oven for obvious signs of failure. I suspect most likely that the problem is caused by a burnt out element and it has shorted the bulb.
I can confirm that the power is on and no default is displayed. Can I arrange a call out through you? thanks
We do not schedule any repair services. If you contact Siemens they can recommend service technicians in your area that will be familiar with the product. http://www.siemens-home.com/ae/contact.html
