Beko ovens are known for being easy to use, energy-efficient, and a great all-round oven for a great price. However, like all appliances, Beko ovens may sometimes have a few glitches that prevent them from working at their best.
If your Beko oven is not heating up properly, you will need to check if the clock has been set. You will also need to check if the door seal is damaged or loose, replace a faulty heating element, or replace a defective oven thermostat.
In this article, I’ll go over the possible reasons why your Beko oven is not heating up and discuss how these issues can be resolved. I’ll also let you in on the easiest way to fix your Beko oven’s heating problem. (Check the bottom of the article).
Let’s get started!
The Oven Clock Is Not Set
This may seem like a strange reason why your oven is not heating up, but if your oven has a digital clock and timer, it has to be set for the oven to work. If you have an older model oven, you shouldn’t have any issue with this as the older models don’t have a digital clock.
However, if you have a newer model that has only been recently installed or experienced a power cut, you’ll need to set the oven’s clock. The way you set your clock will differ from model to model, so it’s best to consult the user manual to do this, or you can watch this video to get a general idea of what to do:
The Seal Is Damaged or Loose
If you’ve had your 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 can lead to hot air escaping between the door and the seal, which means your oven will take longer to heat up, or it might not heat up at all.
Luckily, this is an easy thing to fix and doesn’t require any tools other than a replacement seal and your own hands.
How to Fix It
- Before you start, ensure that the oven is switched off at the outlet or your switchboard. It’s always better to switch electrical appliances off before doing any work to be extra safe.
- Then, open the door completely and locate the rubber seal. It should be attached to the oven right at the front of the cavity.
- Remove the seal by pulling gently, starting in a corner, and working your way around.
- Clean under where the old door seals were with some 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 that 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
One of the most common reasons why your oven won’t heat up is because the heating element may be faulty. If your oven doesn’t heat up, you’ll likely have to replace the heating element. All you’ll need is a set of screwdrivers and a replacement element.
Hot to Fix It
- Ensure that the oven is switched off or disconnected from the power source.
- Take the door off of the oven. To do this, 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 it.
- There is one screw that holds the element in place from the front and two from the back. Unscrew the one on the front.
- Now you’ll need to 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 that’s done, you can slide the oven out of the frame and onto a sturdy surface nearby. You might need to ask 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 make sure you put them back 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 that you secure the door onto the hinges correctly.
Replacing the heating element is quite a complicated task, so if you’re not completely comfortable doing this yourself, get a specialist to do it for you.

The Thermostat Is Defective
If the problem is that your oven does heat up, but not to the correct temperature, the thermostat is the culprit. To do this, you’ll need a set of screwdrivers and a replacement thermostat.
How to Fix It
- 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 out 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.
- Now 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 that hold the thermostat in place.
- Replace the old thermostat with a new one and screw it back into place. Put 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.
- Lastly, you can put the oven back into its frame and reattach the door.
Replacing an oven thermostat is not an easy job, but this video will help make the process a lot easier:
If you are still unsure or not comfortable replacing this yourself, reach out to a specialist and hire them to do it for you.
