Question about Baumatic B180 Electric Single Oven
Baumatic oven not heating up. Grill and fan fine. Green light has come on,on the front of the oven?
Not sure if this is exact model number
If it is the b180, the answer (having just fixed this) is really simple.
The coily bit is the oven element - it will have gone. A new one from eBay cost me about 6 quid.
[WHEN IT ARRIVES !]
Turn the power off.
Inside the oven use a philips screwdriver to remove the 4 screws (KEEP THEM !)
You will see a coily thing and a fan.
You unscrew 3 more screws (2 on the left and 1 on the right).
(KEEP THESE TOO!)
now ... bit tricky, have the new one inside the oven and take each wire off one at a time and put it on the new element.
Screw it back on but DONT put the last panel back in.
Turn the oven on maximum for about 2 minutes and see it glow red.
Turn the oven off. Make a cup of tea and have a couple of biscuits while admiring how good you are and waiting for the element to cool down!!!
Put the final panel back in place. Whole thing (including a cup of tea) takes about half an hour.

If fan is working o/k,then you need to replace the oven element, this is located at rear of inner compartment, behind removeable cover.
Please rate my solution.

Our solution: ageing Baumatic BC185SS electrical oven suddenly blew the house breaker (fusebox) after we turned up the heat to full.
1. We reset the breaker, but now the oven wouldn't heat up (apart from the top grill and the base of the oven). Then even these stopped working.
2. We replaced the rear element (thanks to the Ransom Spares' how-to video - NB TURN OFF oven breaker switch before oven surgery).
3. But now nothing's working, even the fan & light, except the flashing display. However resetting this got the oven functioning again.
4. Still no heat from the rear element so we pulled out the oven and unscrewed the top/rear panels to have a look around. Turns out the rear element's earth wire had disconnected from the rear element's central connector (when we originally pulled out the rear element to replace it only 2 wires were attached).
5. The earth wire connector was a loose fit so we secured it with some duct tape.
6. Then we put everything back together (checking nothing else had come loose), reset the timer display, and were bathed in beautiful heat!
