What happens when an oven element blows?
The best oven cleaner for convection ovens is steam. Pour water and lemon juice into a heat resistant dish and put it in the oven. Set the temperature to 170C – the fan will spread the steam. After the oven cools down, wipe the surface with a soft cloth.
Heating Element and Thermostat The heating elements are the (often coiled up) parts that turn red as your oven heats up, and the thermostat is the knob you adjust your oven’s temperature.
When your oven is heating but not reaching the set temperature, there may be an issue with the temperature settings, temperature sensor or calibration. The solution to your oven’s heating problems could be checking to make sure your oven is set to the proper unit of measurement.
Turn the circuit breaker to the OFF position or remove the fuse. Wait one minute, then turn the circuit breaker back to the ON position or install the fuse to reset power to the unit. This should reset the electronic controls on the range or wall oven.
Turn the knob to the low position when you hold a lighted match to the burner. When lighting the burners, use extreme caution. The need for standing pilots is eliminated when the oven of your gas range is lit by electric ignition.
The date code appears at the beginning of the serial number. This numerical sequence indicates the month, day and year the oven was manufactured. As show in the example above, if a Blodgett oven was manufactured on January 8th, 2016, the date code will be printed as “010816.”
If the fan in your oven is no longer working altogether or is blowing cold air rather than hot air, it will mean that one of two things are malfunctioning the fan and motor assembly or the heating element by the fan itself.
The Oven is Not Heating An oven that won’t heat is usually the result of a faulty igniter (for a gas oven) or heating element (for an electric oven). You may be able to replace the heating element or igniter yourself: Make sure to turn off the power to your oven before servicing it.
You can still light the burner manually though. Hold a lighted match next to the burner and then turn the knob to the “Lo” position to light it. If you’re already using a burner during a power outage, it will stay lit and will have gas flowing to it until you turn the knob to Off.
When an element fails it will usually “open” the electrical circuit and no further heating will take place. When this happens, the element simply appears to have stopped working. In some rare instances the element will “short-out” against the sheath which is the outer visible part of the surface unit.
