I own a Rangemaster DF 110 cooker/oven. The appliance is 15

Customer Question

Hello,
I own a Rangemaster DF 110 cooker/oven. The appliance is 15 years old but in excellent condition. The problem I have is with the right hand fan oven. It only heats to around 150 degrees C. no matter how long it is left on for. Having a new spare element I fitted that first, (although I did not think this was the cause), the problem remained. I then installed a new thermostat, again no improvement. The light remains on until it reaches 150.C. with old or new parts.
I would be very grateful for your comments.
Thank you,
Russell Bowen.

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! With a new element and thermostat, the only thing left is wiring. Do you have a meter to test the voltage getting to the element?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thanks for your reply. I do not have a meter, but I know somebody who does. However he cannot do a test until the next end of next week. What voltage should be coming through and Is it worth doing anything else in the meantime?
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

We would expect to see 230 VAC at the element. The power goes into the thermostat, out of the thermostat and then to the element. With both of those components being new, I suspect a wiring issue is at fault.

Thanks Kelly, I will get back to you once I have done the test.

Hello Kelly,
Tested the wiring, everything ok. Problem was with the thermal cut out, which has now been replaced.
Thanks for your help.
