AEG Oven Won’t Turn Off [Proven Solutions]

If your AEG oven won’t turn off but you have no idea why, this article is for you. Today, we will look at the possible causes of this problem and how to fix them.

AEG Oven Won’t Turn Off — Causes And Solutions

Below, we have listed the possible reasons why your AEG oven won’t turn off and what to do about them.

1. Heating Elements Shorted Out

There are two heating elements in an AEG oven. The grill element and fan oven element. If either of these two shorts out, the oven won’t turn off. To test your AEG oven’s heating elements to determine if they are shorted out, follow the steps listed below…

Step 1: If your oven is still hot from previous use, leave it to cool down completely to room temperature.

Step 2: Once the oven has cooled down, locate the circuit breaker and switch it off.

Step 3: Open the oven door.

Step 4: Using a Philips head screwdriver, take out the screws on the oven’s front frame which hold it to the cabinet.

Step 5: Lift the oven out of the cabinet and set it on a sturdy surface.

Step 6: Go to the oven’s rear.

Step 7: Using the same Philips head screwdriver, take out the screws which hold the oven’s rear access cover in place.

Step 8: Set the access cover aside.

Step 9: Get a multimeter.

Step 10: Turn the multimeter’s dial to the lowest ohms setting.

Step 11: First, we will test the fan oven heating element. Disconnect the wires from the terminals of the element.

Step 12: Touch one of the multimeter’s probes to one of the element’s terminals.

Step 13: Lift the probe off the element’s terminal and place it on the other one. If you saw a reading on the multimeter when you placed the probe on either of the terminals, the element has shorted out and should be replaced.

Step 14: If you don’t see a reading, the element hasn’t shorted out. Reconnect the wires to the terminals and move on to test the grill element.

Step 15: Follow the same steps to test the grill element.

If the grill element or main heating element has shorted out, they should be replaced. Read this article: AEG Oven Grill [How To, Issues & Solutions] to replace the grill element and this article: AEG Oven Heating [Issues & Proven Solutions] to replace the main heating element.

2. Temperature Sensor

The sensor monitors the oven’s temperature while baking to ensure that it is steady. If the sensor fails, it will think that the oven hasn’t reached the set temperature even when it has. This will cause it to keep sending a signal to the element, preventing the oven from turning off. If the main heating element and grill element aren’t faulty but your AEG oven won’t turn off, follow these steps to replace the sensor…

Step 1: Switch off the oven’s circuit breaker.

Step 2: Open the oven door.

Step 3: Take out the screws on the sides of the oven using a Philips head screwdriver. These screws hold the oven to the cabinet.

Step 4: Lift the oven out of the cabinet.

Step 5: Go to the rear and remove the access panel by taking out the screws which hold it in place.

Step 6: Disconnect the wire plug from the sensor. The sensor will be on the right or left side of the oven’s rear.

Step 7: Unscrew the sensor and get a new one. The screws will be right there on the oven’s rear or on the oven interior’s back wall.

Step 8: Screw the new sensor to the oven and connect the wire plug to it.

Step 9: Return the access panel and the screws which hold it in place.

Step 10: Lift the oven back into the cabinet and secure with the Philips head screws.

Step 11: Shut the door and switch the oven’s circuit breaker back on.

Note that not all AEG ovens use temperature sensors

3. Control Board

A faulty control board is the final possible reason why your AEG oven won’t turn off. The control board sends voltage to the oven’s components. If the control board shorts out, it will keep sending voltage to the heating elements even after the oven has cooled down. Not all AEG ovens use control boards. If yours does, follow the steps to replace it…

Step 1: Switch off the oven’s circuit breaker and open the door.

Step 2: Take out the screws which hold the control panel assembly in place. Depending on your oven, the screws will be on the sides or bottom.

Step 3: Lift the panel off.

Step 4: Take a picture of the control board to know where each wire goes.

Step 5: Disconnect the wires from the board and take out the Philips head screws which hold it in place.

Step 6: Get a new board and screw it to the control panel assembly.

Step 7: Connect the wires to the new board. Make sure that each wire goes to the right place.

Step 8: Reposition the control panel assembly and hold it in place with the screws.

Step 9: Shut the door.

Step 10: Switch the circuit breaker back on.

AEG Oven Fan Won’t Turn Off — How To Fix

If the fan in your AEG oven won’t turn off, the high limit thermostat may be faulty. Follow the steps below to replace the high limit thermostat in your AEG oven…

Step 1: Locate the oven’s circuit breaker.

Step 2: Switch the oven’s circuit breaker off to avoid the risk of electrocution.

Step 3: Uninstall the oven from the cabinet. Do this by taking out the screws on the sides of the oven’s front frame.

Step 4: Using a Philips head screwdriver, take out the screws which hold the oven’s back panel in place.

Step 5: Set the back panel aside.

Step 6: Disconnect the wires from the high limit thermostat. The thermostat should be somewhere close to the cooling fan.

Step 7: Unscrew the high limit thermostat and get a new one.

Step 8: Screw the new high limit thermostat to the oven and connect the wires to the terminals.

Step 9: Return the oven’s rear panel and the screws which secure it.

Step 10: Reinstall the oven to the cabinet.

Step 11: Switch the oven’s circuit breaker back on.

If the fan in your AEG oven won’t turn off even after replacing the high limit thermostat, read the section above to replace the control board. Note that not all AEG ovens use control boards. So, if your AEG oven doesn’t use a control board but the fan won’t turn off, contact a technician.
