Some may remember helping with suggestions last year as to why our Bosch
(HBN6450GB/02) oven temp might be resetting itself to 150 all the time.
Following advice, we struggled on with the occasional judicious thump, but
eventually the fault became apparent with the failure of one of a double
ring on elements at the bottom of the oven.
It turned out that with the element actually removed, the display still
stays on 150, so this is what it appears to reset to as the element
gradually fails and makes intermittent open circuits that the 'odd thump'
can get you by for a while.
Anyhow, after much web searching I have obtained a replacement element
assembly. This comes with no instructions of course, so to be doubly sure I
had the connections right, I checked the voltages of the leads prior to
The two rings of the element assembly are marked with different voltages:
250V for the outer, and 75V for the inner. But when I check the leads
themselves (very carefully!) I only find 250V available.
Anyone have more info to explain this before I hook it all back up finally?
Ideally, can anyone point me at a circuit diagram.
Typical how one can find any number of service manuals with complex circuit
diags for cars: but, apparently, b' all for a basic thing like the kitchen
(And I hope you beat the spammers!)
