Most modern models with mechanical controls do not allow for disassembly and cleaning. The initial repair consists of removing dirt from the outside, disconnecting the contact wires, and removing the terminal plates on the controller or timer. If this doesn’t work or doesn’t help completely, the part should be replaced.
Some older models allow the mechanical controllers to be cleaned, after which they operate perfectly, without any problems. Servicing should be done with non-corrosive solvents, such as ligroin or a weak ammonia solution. Oxidation of the contact groups should be scraped off with very fine sandpaper, and special primers are used to remove traces of corrosion.
Breakdown of a mechanical thermostat
This is a part that is replaced frequently, even in the repair of gas pipes. It is guaranteed that there is no interference in the construction of the device. Replacement of the entire element is performed.
Blowers and grill fans stop producing good airflow over time. If the motor works, you need to clean the impeller. Dust constantly accumulates on it, and grease and oil accumulate on the blower fans.
After a period of operation, the blower should be disassembled and the motor lubricated, if its design allows it to do so.
If the fan breaks, rewinding or other repairs are simply unprofitable – the entire assembly is replaced. Do the same with the grill motor. It is in a non-removable housing along with the reducer.
Faulty Heating Element
The heating elements of the oven constantly work in a critical mode. Determining whether the heating element is working is quite simple. To do this, you need to turn on the oven to the appropriate heating mode and check the temperature by touching the hand with a kitchen glove. The method works, but for a more accurate result it is better to use a pyrometer… The device will visually show the uniformity of heating over the entire area, will indicate the maximum temperature in this mode. This will allow to diagnose “burned out” heating element not only completely, but also partially.
Replacement of heaters is made when dismantling the cabinet, to buy a suitable part is not difficult. You can find out the specific designation after removing the heating element or by reference data of the model of your electric oven.
The last three elements that should be replaced without hesitation or hesitation are the backlight, thermal fuses and the foil of the touch panel. All of these parts cannot be cleaned or repaired.
The oven’s electronics will alert you to a thermal fuse tripping in an emergency mode, and problems with the foil touch panel are diagnosed by lack of response, the need for excessive pressing, or accidental actions. You can replace the light bulb yourself, but to install new thermal fuses or a film touch panel, it’s better to contact a service center.
