Hi - the little dial that changed the setting of my oven from clock to auto etc has fallen off. Now my lower oven has stopped working. I noticed that the status has changed to AUTO which I think is the reason the oven isn't working as I used to be able to change it by sticking a match down the hole and turning the little wire that the dial was connected to. It is now damaged (doh!). Will I need an electrician or just a new spare part?

If the clock is showing time you may have accidently knocked the auto button this will shut off the power to both ovens until the timer times out you must press the manual button it usually has a little hand printed on it. If you do not have any lights on the clock or oven it may be due to
1. a blown fuse or tripped power supply
2.Thermal cut out tripped or failure
3.A broken live or neutral wire isolate the power before doing any continuity tests.
4. A faulty timer.
This tutorial will show you how to check your Zanussi element and how to replace your Zanussi cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
Your oven will not work until the clock/timer has been re-set after replacing an oven element or tripping the electrical supply. Consult your Zanussi manual.
If you're Oven is not getting hot or heating up it could be a faulty element, if the fan in the oven is running and the thermostat light is on, this will lead us to believe that the element has gone faulty. With grills the thermostat light should come on there should be heat, if not then this could be the grill element or the thermostat.
When you turn the oven on, the household electrical supply trips on the Rcd (this is the earth trip in the fuse board sometimes called the breaker tripping) your fan oven element has gone to earth and needs replacing.
These things are a pain! When you first power up a lot of New Workd ovens, they come up in AUTO mode and the oven won't work, so you have to take it out of auto mode and stop the clock flashing. I'm giessing that though your clock DISPLAY isn't working, the clock is and the oven think it is.
There are 6 buttons below the clock display.To take it out of AUTO and stop the clock and oven thinking the display is flashing:
Numbering the buttons from left to right as 1,2,3,4,5 and 6 (because they have silly symbols!) press the 4th button (a picture of a hand) you will hear a little click and the oven will now work. If you have to power the unit off for more than about a minute at any time, you will need to do this again
You have more than likely got your oven set to Automatic. If your oven has a face clock turn one of the dials until a hand shows up this will then set it back to manual and should go fine. Same applies for a digital clock you should also see a hand come up. Depending on what oven etc depends on what buttom or dial to turn or press. hope this helps.
if you are having trouble setting the clock times etc this is probably down to a worn bit generator this is the knob you turn to set the time they get dirty when using oven or grill and wont operate properly,the clock will need changing im afraid as there no way to open the clock without destroying it.
