Neff oven element wiring

Replacing the element on my Neff B1442S0GB - The element has connections (spades) for 4 wires. I have pink and blue coloured wires. 3 pink and one blue. Two of the pinks are on one connecter and is atached to one of the lower terminals on the element, the other pink is on the other lower terminal. The blue one has come off, can it be connected to either of the upper terminals? and is it correct that there is only one of them or should I be looking for another wire. Appreciate any assistance here. Thanks.

    I had the same issue. The old element blew. I decided to attempt a DIY replacement. The 'genuine' part was 24.99. On the removal of the broken element, I had trouble with the wires. Initially, I thought that the element only had 1 connector - however, I could see another lose connector just inside the through the hole the element connects through. After connecting everything up, excluding this loose wire, no heat. I then plugged this spare into the same side as another cable of the same colour on the element. This may have worked, except, the fan didn't work! I later discovered that it was just sticky, and with some WD40 the fan was ok. However, I stupidly moved the cable to the other terminal - bang. Circuit breaker tripped. I put this back to the original, fixed the fan above, and everything seemed to be fine... except... the oven got hotter and hotter.... the thermostat had gone! I could tell it had gone as unlike the top oven thermostat, it did not click when you turned it down to zero. The working one (even when powered off) clicked when you turned it to zero. A genuine part is 90GBP. You can get a cheaper replacement on eBay for 25. I am going to attempt installing this....

did you check the old element with a multimeter to make sure it is in fact faulty?
check continuity across the thermostat as well

You should not need to remove fan to access the element fixing scew(s).
You may need what is called a torx screwdriver, if the screws are conventional screws, but some times a small screwdriver will undo them if they are not too tight.
let me know if you require any more assistance.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: what is the wire conection sequence

If there is no earth wire to the element, then it it does not matter which wire goes on the terminals of the heater, as they are common, so,as long as you do not connect the wires to earth, it will be o/k.
If one wire is green/yellow, then that goes to rearth.
Hope this helps.

Hi, Looking for a wiring/electrical diagram for Neff D39F56S0GB Extractor hood. Or could you Kindly point me in the right direction. Thank you


You can find the manual here:

D39F56S0GB/01

and here:
D39F56S0GB/02

It should come with a cable attached which should conform to standard wiring colour codes.

Red/Brown = Live/Feed
Black/Blue = Neutral/Return
Green/Green & Yellow = Earth

If the standard cable has been cut off there is a good chance it was for a reason and you shouldn't try to connect it without knowing how to determine which contact is for which (an electrician/electronics tech will know within seconds what should be connected where.)

Neff oven wiring diagram


It does not really matter which wire goes where. The red one would be live and the blue would be neutral, but on an oven element they could go on either terminal. Just make sure that everything is turned off when working on the oven etc.

My oven keeps tripping the electric


It will be the ring element, short circuit. This is the element that runs around the fan behind the backplate in the oven. It can be replaced by isolating from the mains, remove the 4-6 screws hold the backplate on. remove the two screws on the element brabket and one screw holding the element in position at approx 4 o' clock. Be very careful removing the element at the bracket, ease it out very slolwly so as not to detach the spade connector and wiring. A replacement can be obtained from ebay, espares etc or neff direct via there website (link to spares shop). Make sure the wiring goes back on the new element as it came off the old one. Replace screws and backplate and it should be sorted.
Hope this helps

Hi, I have a Neff Double Oven (U1721N0GB/02). In the process of replacing the main oven element (which was clearly visibly faulty) I think I may have casued a short-sircuit / blown an in-line fuse. I have...


Did you replace the element from inside the oven cavity? If so, you may have knock off one of the spade connections whilst pulling the bracket through. Isolate from mains, remove back panel behind oven (not in the cavity) and check you don't have a wire floating about. The wires usually look quite similar but if you look closing they should have a black or red fleck in them, the element has two prongs on each side, you need to put the two the same colour on one side and the other single different colour on the other prong. If the fan is working then you have not blown the limiter that you will see quite close to the fan, but you might have blown the thermostat or the selector switch. If the red light comes on the fascia when you select the temp then it's pretty safe to assume the thermostat is ok. Hope this helps

When replacing an element in a neff oven, what should I do with the earth wire? There's no point on the new, replacement element to which I can attach it to. Do I just wind a bit of insulating tape around...


So long as you make it safe, it does not matter if it is not connected, as the element will still be earthed via the cabinet earthing connections.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.
