A burner that plugs into a receptacle is easy to test. After turning off the range's power at the main electrical panel, just unplug the non-heating burner, plug it into another working receptacle, restore the power to the range, and test it. If the burner works, you know its original receptacle is probably faulty. If it doesn't work in the good receptacle, the burner is bad and should be replaced. Buy a replacement, and simply plug it into the receptacle.

When you remove the burner, look for burned wires or a charred receptacle. Check the receptacle or terminal block to see if it's cracked, loose, or looks burned. If you notice any of the above signs, replace the faulty component, too. If the male burner prongs are corroded, always change the female receptacle it was plugged into.

Hope this helps

Remove the burners and clean them.

Dry them well and ensure that they are being installed properly.

This should fix the problem.

    I also quote the more extensive explanation given by Repair clinic:

    "The most
    common problem for gas surface burners is that they get gas but don't
    light. This is generally caused by dirt or grease splatters on the
    burner itself. Residential-grade range/stove burners are round and have
    small holes around their perimeter to allow gas to flow out and create
    a round flame. The gas coming from these holes is often ignited by a
    small vertical row of holes on the side of the burner. If these
    vertical holes are clogged or obstructed, the gas can't ignite.

    The
    solution is to clean the burners thoroughly. Use a toothpick to clear
    the small vertical holes, then allow the burner to dry completely and
    try lighting it again. If it doesn't light immediately, either repeat
    the procedure or call a qualified appliance repair technician."

Hi ive purchased a zanussi gas hob & electric grill and oven my installer wanted to knw what amp and wire to use to connect the oven nothing is stated in the manual model no ZOF35511XK


The necessary data for your installer is on
the rating plate. The rating plate is on the back side on oven and on the bottom side on hob. Never remove
the rating plate from the appliance cavity.
Make sure that the electrical information on
the rating plate agrees with the power
supply. If not, contact an electrician

All electrical connections should be made by
a qualified electrician.
The appliance must be earthed.

Gas hob Luce(hotpoint) gas on glass 5ring burners keeps going out on low flame when pull pan drawer beneath out


Same problem with my hob. I adjusted the small jets to their lowest setting in order to be able to simmer -impossible on the bigger jets. The problem is the vents underneath the hob. These can't be closed off so the problem appears to be in the design. The solution I have to use while I save up to by a decent German model is to open and close the cupboard doors underneath the hob very, very slowly.

GAS JETS BLOCKED IN OVEN


If there is only enough gas for the pilot, it is very likely the main gas ciontrol valve is either in need of replacement or the "hot wire" sensor is in the wrong place or broken.
Basically the hot wire determines if the pilot is lit before turning on the main gas supply valve. It is a safety feature to dissapoint the suicidal.

I suggest this is fitted by a gas engineer as a leak at the valve can be very dangerous.

Zanussi Oven Fan ''Ringing''


Your fan blade is probably touching the metal shroud around it or the blade is loose. You can check this by gaining access to the fan and visually looking at it. Please do not do this with the unit plugged in, electricity kills. I hope this helps.

Zanussi Ceramic hob ZKT641H front/main left zone does not heat up


can't give you much guidence - will be either regulator or the plate itself. no easy way to find out. you will have to remove the hob top and check for continuity thro the plate. ifplate is ok, then power up and check for supply to the plate. if no supply, then the regulator will be at fault

Only 2 hobs work


this is almost certainly a wiring issue at the mains connection block, there are links which have not been tightened down. there is usually a diagram adjacent to mains block telling you what to do. connection block is covered by a plate. take plate off and tighten all terminals making sure links have been inserted. switch of at mains of course
