Common Electric Oven Faults

Below is a list of the most common troubles that may occur on an electric oven. You can use the useful information guide to help identify the issues related to your problem

No power to oven

This means that either a fuse has gone, the mains have tripped or the wiring coming into the oven have burnt. If it’s a power issue then you need an electrician to fix it before we can repair the oven. If the wiring is damaged then we can repair that.

Oven has power but doesn’t heat up
  • Is the timer set? ( Is the steaming dish showing on the timer)
  • Is the thermostat light on?
  • Is the fan working?
Oven tripping the electrics

This is often caused by an element failing.

Fan not working

Don’t use the oven as it will reduce the life of the element.

Is the fan spinning? Turn the oven on and look to see if you can see the fan spinning, hearing it is not good enough as often an oven has more than one fan

Noisy fan

Is the fan noisy as soon as you turn the fan oven on? If the answer is yes then the bearings of fan motor are faulty. If the noise come on after 5-10 minutes then it’s the cooling fan at fault

Oven burns food

If an oven is burning food then often the thermostat has stopped working and needs replacing

Oven not hot enough

If you have a conventional oven then it means one of the heating elements is not working. Its quite easy to check, turn on the oven for 30 seconds and put your hand near the top and near the bottom of the oven, one of them will not be getting hot.

If you have a fan oven; Iis the fan working? If the answer is yes then the fan element needs replacing

Grill has power but doesn’t heat up

If the light comes on but the grill won’t heat up then the grill element requires replacing.

Oven cuts out (but doesn’t trip the electrics)

This can often be a sensor fitted to the oven to stop the oven overheating which comes on at a lower temperature. Another possible reason is that the cooling fan is not working so turn the grill on and see if can feel air blowing from the fan.
