A faulty heating element is probably why your Beko oven won’t heat. Other reasons include; faulty thermostats, damaged fuses, or clocks not set. First, check that your oven’s digital clock is set. Then, if the issue persists, seek the help of a professional or follow our DIY guides to identify and replace faulty elements that prevent your oven from heating.
Beko ovens are known for being durable, energy-efficient, and a great all-around oven for a great price. However, like all appliances, Beko ovens may sometimes have glitches that could prevent proper heating. I’ve personally owned and used a Beko oven for many years, and heating issues are not so rare. So there’s no need to panic if your oven doesn’t heat.
However, I understand the inside out of these ovens, and I’ll be showing you exactly where to look if your oven doesn’t heat, plus quick DIY fixes you can try at home.
Discover all the possible reasons why your Beko oven is not heating up and discuss how these issues can be resolved. I’ll also tell you the easiest way to fix your Beko oven’s heating problem. (at the bottom of the article).
Let’s get started!
Why Is My Beko Oven Not Heating Up?
Here are the possible reasons why your Beko oven won’t heat up:
- The Oven Clock Is Not Set
- The Oven Seal is damaged or loose
- The heating element is broken.
- Malfunctioning thermostat.
Let’s take a quick look at each of these issues and how to resolve them:
The Oven Clock is Not Set
Beko ovens come with a digital clock (an LED display). If you’re using your Beko oven for the first time, you must set the time on the clock/LED. This is probably the reason why your oven won’t heat up.
It only takes two steps to set the time on your Beko LED display:
- Press the plus or minus buttons on the LED until the correct time appears on display.
- Press ONLY the adjustment button (top left) for about 4s to confirm the time setting.
How you set your clock for cooking will differ from model to model, so consult the user manual for more insights, or you can watch this video from Beko on how to set up cooking time in an oven.
The Door Seal is Loose or Damaged
Loose or damaged seals could prevent your Beko oven from heating. Poor seals will let hot air escape between the door and the seal, which means your oven will take longer or might not heat up at all.
If you’ve had your Beko oven for longer, it might be time to replace the seals. Because the seals are made of rubber, they wear out over time and need to be replaced every so often.
This is an easy thing to fix that doesn’t require any tools other than a replacement seal.
How to Fix Loose Beko Seals
- Ensure that the oven is switched off at the outlet or your switchboard.
- Open the door completely and locate the rubber seal. It should be attached to the oven right at the front of the cavity.
- Carefully pull out the seal, starting in a corner and working your way around.
- Clean under the old door seals with soapy water and a sponge. This will ensure that the new seal fits into the groove properly. Remember to let the groove dry before installing the new seal.
- Line your replacement seal up with one of the corners and press it into place.
- Work your way around the oven door, pressing the seal down firmly to ensure it is secure.
While replacing an oven seal is a relatively easy task, it can still be confusing if you’ve never done it before. Watch this video if you still feel a little unsure of how to do this:
The Heating Element is Faulty
The heating element provides sufficient heat to your Beko oven. If the heating element is broken, it won’t generate heat to get your oven to the minimum required temperature. So the first place to look after your clock is set up; is the heating element. All you’ll need is a set of screwdrivers and a replacement element.
How to Fix a Faulty Heating Element
- Disconnect the oven from the power source.
- Take the door off the oven: open the door and find the hinges at the bottom. Push down on the tabs at the hinges’ side with a flathead screwdriver to release the door. Close the door about halfway and slide the door upward and off of the hinges. Set the door aside. Here’s a video you can watch to make this process clearer.
- Remove the shelves and shelf racks.
- Unscrew the fan and element cover from the back of the oven cavity to remove them.
- There is one screw that holds the element in place from the front and two from the back. Unscrew the one on the front.
- Take the oven out of its frame. Unscrew the two screws at the front of the oven that holds it in place. There’s one on either side of the cavity. Then you’ll need to remove any trim around the oven that might get in the way. Once it is done, you can slide the oven out of the frame and onto a sturdy surface nearby. You might need someone to help you with this as the oven can be quite heavy.
- Unscrew and remove the back panel of the oven to reveal the wiring behind it.
- Remove the wire connectors that are attached to the back of the element. Take a photo before you remove them to ensure you return them the same way. Don’t pull too hard, as they are quite sensitive.
- Unscrew the screws that are holding the heating element in place from behind.
- You can now remove the heating element from the front of the oven.
- Put the new heating element where the old one was and screw it in from the front and the back.
- Reconnect the wire connectors to the back of the element and screw the back panel back in place.
- Put the oven back into its frame and replace any trim you may have removed.
- Screw the fan and element cover back in place, replace the shelves and shelf racks, and put the door back on, ensuring you secure the door onto the hinges correctly.
If you’re not comfortable doing this yourself, seek help from a professional.

The Thermostat is Defective
A defective thermostat could be another reason your Beko Oven won’t heat. A faulty thermostat won’t properly regulate the oven’s temperature, which can cause the oven to either not heat up or overheat. You’ll need a screwdriver and a replacement thermostat to do this.
How to Fix a Defective Oven Thermostat
- Switch the oven off at the outlet or on your switchboard.
- Unhook the door from its hinges and slide it upwards and off of the hinges to remove it.
- Remove the oven from its frame. Unscrew the screws that hold it in place and slide it onto a sturdy work surface.
- Unclip the thermostat’s capillary tube from the roof of the oven right at the back.
- Unscrew and remove the back panel.
- Unscrew and remove the oven’s top panel as well.
- Pull the capillary tube out of the oven through the back and remove any screws holding the wire in place.
- Move to the front of the oven where the temperature control knob is. Take a photo of the wires so you know how to put them back.
- Remove the wire connectors from the back of the temperature control knob.
- Remove the control knob from the oven and unscrew the screws holding the thermostat.
- Replace the old thermostat with a new one and screw it back into place. Turn the temperature control knob back onto the oven and reconnect the wires behind the thermostat. Then thread the capillary tube back into the oven and screw the back and top panels back into place.
- Put the oven back into its frame and reattach the door.
If you are still unsure or not comfortable replacing this yourself, contact a specialist and hire them to do it for you.
