The bottom bake element in the oven compartment? Or the fan forced element please?? Both are in the lower section of the oven*
WHen cooking the top is burning and that is taking longer time to bake.YOu asked if it is the fan element or the bottom element, I am not sure on that one now, is there a way to find out which one it is burnt out
I am not sure how the fees work, all I want is this problem fixed, I do not want a monthly subscription, so does the 15 dollars I approved on visa be sufficient for this information
Okay, when I have answered your question, you hit the accept button and then the Just Answer website will authorise your payment of $15 to me. (They hold your deposit until you accept)I need to know, is it a GOL476S, a GOL476K, or GOL476W ? Then I can look at the technical data and work out how many elements this oven has and the different cooking modes etc okay,,
THe model number is POL 668W This number I found after opening the oven door.THe model I gave before was a guess from the owners manuel,
Can you look at this photo and confirm that it is this oven, look at the dials and the features etc...
yes the picture is correct, it is the six button model POL668W
Okay,Looking at the diagram, you can see the grill element and the boost element at the top of the oven compartment. Behind the rear panel, in the centre(labelled fan baffle) is the fan forced oven element. If your lower oven is not heating, then it will be the element behind the rear fan panel that isnt working.You need to isolate the mains power to the oven at the circuit breaker, then remove all of the oven shelves and side racks and then undo the screws on the rear fan panel to release the panel from the rear of the oven. Once you have the screws removed, the panel will then come forward, exposing both the fan and the fan forced oven element.Here is a video that will give you an idea on how this is done also okay, you dont need to remove the door though okay,,most of the time (up to you)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-bwySCMG28
I took the element into a repair place to get a new one, they checked the element and said there is nothing wrong with it.To bake a cake it tends to burn on the top and is taking longer to bake than it used to, that is why I thought it was the bottom element that is not functioning.Any ideas?Keith
Hi there again Keith,Im thinking that maybe the thermostat needs changing... it is what regulates the temperature inside the oven etc..
