Question about Bosch Kitchen Ranges

6 Answers

I replaced the the convection heating element on a Bosch HBL 455 AUC electric oven. The power trips when I turn on the upper oven (where the repair was made). The lower oven clock and lights are working fine. I must have crossed the wires. The are : White thinner guage, Green heavier gauge and Blue double wire heavier gauge. What is the correct order?

    Wires are fine. I need the correct order the wires are attached to the heating element. Heating element has 3 terminals Top and bottom connect to the heating elements and the middle is a ground.
    The wires are white with a black stripe (thinner gauge). Blue double wire and green single wire.
    What is the correct order they attach to the heating element?

  • tdusky Oct 20, 2008

    White & Black stripe on the top.
    Blue in the middle (ground)
    Green on the bottom.

    I gave up on waiting for your advice. I made a list of the 9 possible combinations and started going threw them. My 4th try was the one, with white on the top, green in the middle and blue on the bottom. The oven would just trip off when I turned on the oven. I worked with the power off of course.

  • tdusky Oct 22, 2008

    I gave up waiting for an answer so I went forward with trial and error. I got it right on my 4th attempt. White on top, green in the middle(ground), and blue on the bottom. The problem now is the thermostat must have been damaged as the oven will keep heating up and not stay at the temperature set.

After you have connected the wires in the correct order, now check the thermostat for continuity and should cutoff when you set it to a lower temp. if it will not cut off, then you need to replace the thermostat.

Here is the order of connection

white thinner gauge connect to the ground

blue double wire connect to the Top of heating element

green single wire connect to the Bottom of heating element .

You try this connection at your own risk .

Precaution: Better call a professional to do the connection as it is risky .

Sounds like a short in one of the wires has a short in it where it was replaced. That would explain the power tripping. Search for any rips in the wire or where the wiring might come in contact with a sharp piece of metal.

Cooker oven not working - replaced bulb. Hot plates still work.


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
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Our oven won't work. it is a convection oven, and it won't heat at all. the stovetop does work, but when we turn the oven on it says "low" and never heats up. the fan does turn on when we try...


Hi

If the fan is working then most likely it is the heating element gone bad.

You can check this if you have a multimeter or continuity tester.

Replacing the element is not too difficult, you have to get the back off, disconnect 2 wires, undo the fixing screws then fit the new one.

Don't forget to turn the power off first tho'.

Oven elements dont work / stove top works fine


I just had a repairman fix my Kitchenaid 507KERCYAL0 electric range and oven. The problem was a $4.00 fuse. I didn't see exactly what he did but he accessed the fuse from the rear - had to pull out the range and I think remove a panel. Hopefully this helps and saves you $$. I ended up paying $90 to fix a $4 problem
