How To Replace An Oven Thermostat
An oven that is overheating, getting too hot, or is burning your food, is a common fault on electric ovens. In most cases the problem is simply a faulty oven thermostat failing to regulate the temperature in your oven correctly.
Hi, I’m Lee from Ransom Spares. If your cooker is overheating, or your control know is spinning round with no resistance then it is likely to be the cooker thermostat on your cooker that needs replacing. In this video I’m going to show you how to fit the oven thermostat in to a built in single electric oven.
Firstly I’m going to remove the door for ease of access. To do this we need to remove the two clips on the hinges. When we close the door the hinges won’t close on themselves but instead they will come away from the hinge housing.
Now we need to unclip the oven thermostat temperature sensor.
We can now remove the oven back panel and lid panel in order to gain access to the rear of the ovens control panel where the thermostat is located.
Next we can remove the oven know and remove the screws that are holding the oven thermostat in place.
Now we must make a note of the wiring that is going to the oven thermostat before removing.
We should now be able to remove the oven thermostat and capillary from the inside of the oven and replace it with the new one.
