    Thanks for help so far. Just to make clear i have no display/power on the digital display so i cannot reset this. There is still mains power as the top oven still works. Is there a fuse or thermal overload on here somewhere?
    Thanks

I suspect that you did cut power to the oven when you replaced the element. therefore the oven needs to be reset as new. there are quite a few pages of instructions on setting the timer so be prepared if you are going to to proceed with this "little" project.
I was able to locate your manual online here:http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/zanussi/zuq_875.html?idRes=625295

I suggest unplugging it for a few minutes...then plugging it back in. Hopefully if the electrical is good you will see the oven's timer flashing. then you can proceed with the instructions from page 7.
Otherwise, you may have a blown a short and should get a licensed electrician to look at it.
Another option would be to contact the manufacturer:service.eid@electrolux.ie

Or, find the bloke that installed it and invite him over for dinner and maybe he'll notice it's not working and will fix it for free! ;-)
Good luck mate!

SOURCE: main oven wont work

It is the oven element that has failed
Remove panel at rear of oven compartment, there you will see the element, just undo any screws that you can see and pull the element towards you, carefully detach the wires, but don't loose them inside or you will have remove the oven to get the wires back on.
Fit new element and Bob's your uncle ,you've cracked it.
Plz leave feedback for this solution.
Thanks.

You need to replace the round fan oven element located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover where the fan is located.

Does it trip the breaker when you turn the light on only? Or when is the breaker tripping?

SOURCE: I have a ZDF20X double oven and the main bottom

Most likely it is a faulty oven heating element.

You will need to replace the element.

Usually the element is a circular shape which is situated near the fan, normally you will need to remove the back of the oven, Switch off the power at the wall first, locate the element and remove the fixing screws and electrical connections then fit the new element and reconnect.

Only attempt this replacement if you are confident to do so and have a basic electrical and mechanical knowledge.

Test element check for continuity across the terminals and it is getting power when switch onon. If both ok, chances are the front selector switch has blown.

I turned the bottom oven on and it was like a small lighting bolt went off, it tripped the fuse box to the house and now only the top oven works?


You will probably find that the element for the lower oven has expired. They sometimes do go in a shower of sparks. I once had an element on a hob explode in my face and a small lump of red hot metal flew up and just missed me.
It is easy to get to the circulatin fan and element, you just have to remove the 4 self tapping screws in each corner of the fan/element cover for the cover to come off. If the element has burnt out as you say you should see some evidence of burn marks/holes on the element.
The bad news is that you will have to take the whole oven out of the housing to remove its top and back to gain access to the element retaining nuts and the wiring to unclip/reclip it.
Try espares for a replacement element and if it was a major bang when it went, you should consider replacing the thermostat as well as this is often damaged by the element going.
(The thermostat is the long thin metal rod in the top right hand corner of the oven and is connected to the control by a very thin fragile pice of wire - be careful)!

Using my EOB5630 oven went bang


the fan element will have shorted out. if you remove the panel from inside the oven you may see where the circular fan has shorted. It will have blown a fuse poss in a plug if connected that way.or tripped a circuit breaker. remember to set the clock when power is restored as it wont work until you do.

Bottom oven not working Tecnik 8525/2


To be certain the element is o/k , you need to test it with a meter.
The fact that it looks o/k proves nothing. If you know how to use a meter, then remove element from oven, and with the meter set on the continuity range, test across the terminals of the heater, if you get fsd, ( full scale deflectoin) then the element should be o/k.
If no deflection , then element is no good.
If in doubt, remove the wires from the element , and try the oven, if it does not trip, then it proves element faulty.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
