I have a regency VSA EW075 wall oven. The convection oven element failed causing some arcing and molten element spray. I have obtained a new element and I can't get the oven to work. I have looked for any kind of fuse but I can not locate any anywhere. The oven has power, I can turn the lower oven on, it works, the interior light works. I can not get the fan to turn on using the hi speed switch nor will the element create any heat. Is there some kind of protection switch that is preventing the upper oven (convection) from turning on? I can hear the clicks when I turnthe dial the first one to activate the fan and the second to activate the element.

Hi,

**regency VSA EW075 wall oven**

-I- haven't seen one before...but...

**The convection oven element failed causing some arcing and molten element spray. I have obtained a new element and I can't get the oven to work. I have looked for any kind of fuse but I can not locate any anywhere**

May have blown one of the (2) house fuses (or breakers) to the oven and only the 120 volt stuff ( lights, clock ) are working and we have lost the 240 volts to make the elements work. I'd confirm that the range still has the correct power comming into it.

Something that -may- help...

Thanks Jeff

I think I have correct power...the bottom oven works fine. I have practically dismantled the stupid thing looking for internal fuses (it must have some right?) but I can't find any. They wouldn't make it so I had to remove the oven to get at them would they? Owners manual doesn't help at all.

*Most* built in ovens will not have fuses inside.

If you find the wire diagram that comes with the unit, that can help tell you if there are any fuses or fuse boxes used in the installation.

I have this same Regency oven model and the same problem where the upper convection unit totally died. I am curious as to how you finally resolved your problem since this is an Australian company and parts are probably not easy to come by.

I have experienced the same problems with my convection stove as previous home owners have reported. It is frustrating and I have not been able to secure a solution from the company. Is there a solution to fixing this unit? Please let me know where to go or how to fix. The bills are pileing up. I now have a new element and a new switch and it still will not heat.

** I have not been able to secure a solution from the company. **

The only way a solution will be found is by someone looking into *your* appliance. I doubt anyone will be able to tell you the problem with it from some remote location.

** The bills are piling up. I now have a new element and a new switch and it still will not heat. **

Just replacing parts on a guess is not usually the way to go about performing service. Actual checking of its components according to its wiring diagram will likely be necessary to determine a failure point so it can be corrected.

We also have owned a Regency wall oven for about 15 years. A number of years ago the convenction oven failed in a shower of sparks, too. It was repaired, but we had to wait for ages for parts. I think it was the element itself. Now, it has quit again. No sparks or drama this time. When we contacted the origianal dealer, they advised they don't do repairs anymore. When we contacted another appliance repair technician, he said by telephone it could be the element, but it either takes too long to get parts from Australia, or they're obsolete. Because of it's age, he said to throw it away and buy something else. Seems like a waste. Any advice?
