Wouldn't expect a fuse to be the problem with those symptoms.

You need to fish out the old bulbs (that is, the last ones you had that worked for any period of time) and read the ratings off them. You are particularly interested in a number followed by a capital V (so this might be 12V, 120V, 230V or any of a number of others). This is the supply voltage they are are compatible with.

You need to be sure you buy replacements which have the same voltage rating. If your replacements are rated for a lower voltage, they will expire in a blaze of glory the instant you apply power. If they're rated for a higher voltage, they'll glow very dim and yellow.

You have a little more leeway withthe wattage rating (a number followed by a W, eg 15W, 25W). It's safe to go lower (though less bright), and probably OK to go a tiny bit higher but if you go much further than the enclosure is designed for, you risk problems with overheating.

If you're certain you have the right bulbs but the problem hasn't gone away, you'll need to come back with more information. It might help to know: Brand & model of the hood in question, what rating (both V and W) the bulbs are, how long they last, what it looks like when they blow (bright white light, or brilliant blue flash), what it says on the rating plate of the hood, and what part of the world you live in (tells us what the power supply is like).

But my first guess would still be that the new bulbs are the wrong type.

How do i fix prob with fuse blown on new world range cooker.replaced fuse but it blows again and sml pop sound and flash from knob control panel


You have to find where the dead short is.

The pop sound is the fuse blowing. The flash is where the short is. If you can get in behind the control panel and look for something that is obviously wrong, loose wire, burned wire touching the frame, but to test you really need a multimeter.

Easy way, call a service engineer.

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.

How do i change the bulb in the cooker


Most of the light covers are twist off in the anti clockwise direction or have 1 or 2 screws holding the lamp cover on, so remove these and take the lamp cover off to gain access to the bulb. The bulb should be a small edison screw threaded type and this can be removed by twisting it. You can place the replacement bulb in the opposite way until it is secure then replace the lamp cover.
