The first thing to do is to check if at least the indicator light or the oven light comes on when you turn it on. If nothing lights up and the power supply is okay, the oven switch is almost certainly defective. The contacts on it usually melt.
If the switch is faulty, you may also find that only the light flashes when you turn it on, or the oven only turns on in one of the switch positions.
If the light in the oven comes on after setting the desired function, but the oven doesn’t heat up, it’s time to check the oven thermostat. It should click – turn on and off – when you turn the temperature knob. If it’s overheated, the heater won’t even turn on.
Another possibility is that the oven heats to a high temperature and won’t turn off at the set temperature. In this case, it is clear that the thermostat is defective.
If the oven does turn on, and you feel that it heats up, but very weakly, most likely the heating element is defective. The lower one burns out most often, as it has more power than the upper one and therefore is under more strain. You can also measure the heater, for this we need an electrical resistance meter.
Oven Heating Element
It is very rare for cables to burn out or for the connectors on the cables to become loose. If the stove has a timer display, this could be one of the reasons for the stove not working. However, this rarely happens.
