What could be worse when you have a lot of food to cook than finding that your Beko oven won’t heat up? We rely on our Beko ovens to be ready to work immediately and take it for granted that they will.
You must figure out why quickly when your Beko electric oven is not working. Several factors are at play, and some of them are benign.
Others may need to be dealt with by a technician. The key is to understand what the problem is so you can determine the best course of action.
In this article, you will learn the causes of your Beko oven not working and why a Beko oven fan not working would happen. By the end of the article, you will know exactly what to do.
Beko Oven is Not Working
An electrical issue is the most likely cause of a Beko oven not working. The most straightforward reason is that it isn’t plugged into the mains supply. The thing to do first is check to see if the plug is firmly in the socket.
Also, look for any frayed cord, especially if you have pets that like to chew things.
A tripped circuit breaker is another likely culprit. You’ll know the appliance is not getting power when the lights are not lit anywhere. Check the circuit breaker box and turn it on if it has been tripped.
There could be a blown internal thermal fuse if neither is a problem. This safety feature can sometimes malfunction and prevent the oven from working.
To replace it is a simple procedure.
Turn off the power
Before starting, ensure the oven is unplugged, or the power is turned off at the circuit breaker. This will prevent any electric shocks or injuries.
Locate the fuse
It’s usually located near the control panel or on the back of the oven. It may be enclosed in a fuse holder or wrapped in heat-resistant tape.
Remove the old one
Use a pair of pliers to pull out the old one gently. Be careful not to damage the surrounding wires or components.
Insert a new fuse of the same amperage and voltage rating as the old one. The amperage and voltage rating can be found in the oven’s manual.
Test the oven
Once the new one is in place, plug the oven back in or turn on the power at the circuit breaker. Test the oven to see if it is working correctly.
When you test the oven, if it still isn’t working, it is time to phone a repair technician.
Beko Oven isn’t Heating
If your food is taking too long or not cooking, there may be a heating issue with your Beko oven.
When you’ve turned the oven on, and there is power but no heat, there is a mechanical issue to take care of. The key is identifying what specific mechanical problem.
The Oven Clock Is Not Set
Your oven may not be heating up because the digital clock and timer must be set for the oven to work properly. This only applies to newer models with a digital clock, as older models don’t have this feature.
This is the most likely culprit if you recently had the power go out, as you will need to set the clock for the oven to work.
To reset the clock on digital Beko ovens, follow these steps:
- Press the plus or minus button until the correct time is displayed.
- Press and hold down the button that adjusts the time until the display flashes.
- Release the button and then press it again to set the hour.
- Repeat the process for the minutes.
- Once the correct time is displayed, press the adjustment button on the top left to confirm the setting.
- Wait for four seconds without pressing any button to save the new time.
The Seal Is Damaged or Loose
The rubber door seal to the oven are not meant to last forever. Eventually, it will be too dirty or dried to seal the oven door completely. Hot air escapes between the door and the seal when the oven is not sealed. The result is longer heating times or an oven that doesn’t heat up.
Luckily, it is not difficult to fix, so there is no need to call a technician.
- Before you start, ensure the oven is switched off at the outlet or your switchboard to be safe.
- Open the oven door completely and locate the rubber seal. It should be attached to the oven at the front of the cavity.
- Gently pull the old door seal starting from a corner and work your way around to remove it.
- Clean the door groove where the old seal was attached with soapy water and a sponge. Make sure it’s dry before installing the new seal.
- Line up your replacement seal with one of the corners and press it into place into the groove in the door.
- Work your way around the oven door, pressing the seal firmly to ensure it is secure.
Once you have replaced the seal, do a test bake to see if the oven heats up as it should.
Faulty Heating Element
You’ll know if your problem is a faulty oven element if only one is working and the other isn’t, for instance, if the bottom oven element works fine, but the grill element doesn’t come on.
Take a look at the element while the oven is on. If it is only red in spots, this is a sign it is broken.
If the appliance isn’t heating at all, then it’s likely that both of the elements are dead or there is a thermostat issue.
You should consider replacing the heating elements if you notice signs of damage, uneven cooking, or inconsistent heating.
This is a job that is best left to appliance professionals. However, it can only be done by a handy homeowner who is used to fixing appliances.
The Thermostat Is Defective
Many of the signs of a defective thermostat will resemble those of a broken or faulty heating element. Often, you’ll first notice a problem when you have unevenly cooked food with still undercooked spots.
You may also notice that your oven is overheating and hotter than expected. This is the surest sign that you have a faulty thermostat, which isn’t a damaged heating element.
The thermostat uses a sensor to detect the temperature inside the oven cavity. This sensor sends signals to the thermostat, activating or deactivating the heating elements to maintain a consistent temperature and avoid overheating.
When the sensor or the thermostat isn’t working right, the oven can’t heat to the correct temperature and won’t maintain that temperature throughout the cooking process.
Although a handy homeowner could replace a thermostat, this is best left to an appliance professional. If your oven is under warranty and you attempt to fix it, you could void it.
Beko Oven Fan Motor is Not Working
The process of determining why the fan oven element isn’t working is similar to that of the oven, not heating. First, check the power source.
Make sure it is plugged in. If it is plugged in, check the circuit breaker panel. If both of those look fine, proceed to do some troubleshooting.
The most likely cause of a fan oven element not working is that you are using the wrong setting. Check the settings before you panic that something is wrong with the appliance.
For models with a mechanical timer, ensure the dial is set to manual mode, usually indicated by a “hand” or “infinity” symbol.
Beko Oven Display Not Working
Several factors can cause the display on your Beko oven to stop working. Whatever the cause, addressing the issue as soon as possible is essential to get your oven back up and running.
Faulty Control Panel
If the control panel is not functioning, it may need to be reset. Try a hard reset of the appliance by unplugging the oven for 60 seconds and plugging it back in to see if this resolves the issue.
If it doesn’t, then move to the next problem.
If the wiring that connects the control panel to the rest of the appliance is damaged or loose, it could cause the control panel to stop working. With a multimeter, you can see continuity if you know how to use one.
The oven’s temperature sensor is responsible for sending information to the control panel to adjust the oven’s temperature. If this sensor is not functioning correctly, it could cause the control panel to stop working.
Unfortunately, these are all issues that would be difficult to resolve alone. In these cases, it is best to call an appliance professional to do the job correctly.
Experiencing issues with a Beko oven not working can be frustrating, especially when you rely on it for cooking and baking.
By following the troubleshooting tips provided in this article and consulting with a qualified technician if necessary, you can effectively diagnose and resolve the issue.
Taking proactive measures to maintain and care for your Beko oven can help prevent future problems and ensure that it works reliably for years.
