Question about Zanussi ZBS963X Electric Single Oven

Open Question

Zbs1063x Cooling Fan Not working - cooker cooking itself!

Looks like the motor used to cool the gap between the oven and controls has failed. I took a look inside and all looks ok - I think it is the motor rather than a sensor as it buzzes when the oven warms up.
The control buttons are starting to be affected by the heat so I need to get this fixed. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement motor and what motor I actually need?

Thanks.

Hello hal.... When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

The fan runs when power to the cooker is on but the oven itself is not switched on.


Probably the cooling fan. There is a cabinet thermostat on most ovens these days (Especially wall or underbench models) to keep the cooling fan running after the cooking has finished and oven turned off. This fan will run for a few minutes to cool down the outside of the oven so it doesn't burn / discolour the surrounding cabinet or workbench. If the fan stays on all the time, I would say that the thermostat has probably jammed in the run or on position.

Why the cooling fan does not work on one the upper over of KEBS278


First check that the fan itself has not failed. If the fan and wiring are ok, your EOC (electronic oven control) has failed. This is NLA (no longer availabe). The Whirlpool part number is 3187895. This can be rebuilt: See:

Oven doesn't seem to heat up enough


There is a cooling fan In a STOVES 720 to keep the fabric of the oven cool. If this fails the overheat thermostats will cut in and shut the heating elements off. The cooling fan does in fact blow air out of various places in and around the doors. The top oven has a small element and takes a long time to warm up. If you are not confident that the thermostats are working correctly, then I suggest you purchase an oven thermometer from someone like Lakeland and see how that relate to what you are actually setting on the cooker dial. As I said the top oven leave a lot to be desired!

My AEG competence oven is making a loud buzzing noise coming from the top fan? The food tonight was either burnt or under cooked? The buzzing is also loud when switched off/cooling down? Any ideas please.


I would suspect that the problem is caused by the external cooling fan located under the outside cooker cabinet housing, which continues to operate as the oven is cooling down if it is built in, you will have to remove it from the oven housing to access the fan

The oven is not work or better say works for little be and going off. could you please help or please let me know what telephone should I call?


Hi,Everything operates normally, but the oven shuts off after varying amounts of time. This could be a faulty magnetron, bad cooling fan (or just built up dust and grime block ventilation grilles), bad thermal protector, faulty controller, some other intermittent component, or bad connections.
  • If resetting it allows cooking to resume immediately, if even for a few seconds, I would not suspect the magnetron or thermal problem as no cool down time is required. It could be bad connections in the controller or elsewhere, a marginal door interlock switch, or a controller problem. Jiggle the door to see if this will cause it to shut off.
  • If the magnetron was overheating, you would not be able to resume cooking until it cooled and the thermal protector reset. If it just stopped working (i.e., the filament opened), everything would appear normal but there would be no heating. If the magnetron were shorting, there would likely be a loud hum associated with the periods where there was no heat.
  • If it is not possible to resume cooking for a few minutes indicating that something needs time to cool off, then the magnetron could be faulty but check for the obvious cooling problems first: blocked or dirty ventilation grill. Determine if the magnetron cooling fan is operating by listening for its sound or looking through the ventilation opening in the back of the oven. If it is not, there could be a broken or weak belt, gummed up or lack of lubrication, other mechanical problems, a bad motor, or bad connections.
  • Extremely high power line voltage may also result in overheating on a poorly designed or oven where the components are marginal.
  • Make sure the stirrer fan is turning normally. Should it gets stuck, some models may sense this and shut down/restart.
Hope it helped..

How do i turn the fan off.


Hello,
If you mean the oven fan that will turn off on control switch.I think you may be talking about the cooling fan.This is to cool the electrical panel on the top front of cooker. It comes on after the oven heats up and may stay running for 15 or 20 minutes after cooker is turned off it will turn off after the unit has cooled down sufficiently for the controller.
Hope I helped.

Good Luck.

Keeps going off when above 180 degrees, then back on again after 10-15 minutes ?!


Hi.
Without knowing your exact make and model I can only guess that your console cooling fan (sits at the top back of your oven) has failed. This is used to keep the the clock and controls from overheating. If it failes then a safety switch will activate and turn everything off in your cooker. when it cools down it will remake the contact and then switch everything back on again.

Hope this helps

Oven Over Heat


Not sure if this is relevant but, have you set the clock correctly?  The oven will cut off if it's cooking on a timer.

Thermador built-in double wall oven -- replace cooling fan?


No, do not try it yourself. When the motor is bad sometimes it won't have the power to start itself. With a push it will take off. If you try to remove it yourself you will risk damaging cabinet, the oven itself, floors and/or yourself. Please trust your repairman. We are trained and experienced. Not everyone Is out to get you!
