Question about Zanussi ZDF490 Electric Double Oven

Open Question

I purchased a Zannusi Oven 15 months ago, and the lettering on the control panel wiped off. I contacted Proctor and Gamble who manufactured the product i'd purcghased and wiped over the panel with. Proctor and Gamble witnessed what their product has done and they said that it is a design fault. I obviously have cleaned the oven and use soapy water. I use the Flash clean and care as it is is detailed as a gentle cleaner and on the bottle is more than suitable. The oven is a Zanussi ZKC6020W. Proctor and Gambl ahve offered to have works done to remedy the problem but when I attempted to purchase a control pannel was told this is not a consumable part. Please advise on if this is a product design fault or if this has been recalled or if you feel that this is a cleaning product fault.

SOURCE: oven door zbf360x zanussi

Open the door half way, grasp it firmly and pull as hard as required using a slight side to side motion to release the hinges which are attached to the door.

There are then to nuts on the bottom of the door which when removed allows you to split the door in half.

The hinges have a little lever on them such that they can be jammed open against the door. Once the hinge hook is in the oven housing simply turn the latch the other way, stand back and have a beer.

No heat from my Electrolux oven fan is running but oven light not working the oven is only six months old


Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

Based off the information you have provided your Electrolux oven is not heating properly. I would recommend performing a reset on your range which you can do by disconnecting power from it for ten minutes. If that does not help to correct your issue it could be a faulty element or control panel. I understand your range is only six months old typically the warranty for a range is one year. I would contact the manufacturer for proper resolution regarding a warranty. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

How do I get the door open after self cleaning and what do I push to self cleaning


Hi, Some ovens are self cleaning During the cleaning process, the oven heats up to a temperature of 900 degrees Fahrenheit. The extreme heat cooks off food and spills inside the oven, leaving ash that can easily be wiped out. The oven door locks while it is cleaning to prevent the door from being opened. Self cleaning ovens are better insulated than regular ovens to keep the extreme heat inside.

Instructions

Read the owner's manual that came with your oven before you perform self cleaning. Although all self cleaning ovens work basically the same way, there may be slight variations for some manufacturers and models.

Take out the oven racks. You need to clean the oven racks by hand, and then put them back in when the oven is done cleaning.

Wipe up any spills and messes inside the oven first, using warm water and a mild soap. Ovens smoke more during cleaning when there is food inside. Wash the inside of the oven door as well. Do not scrub the door gaskets, just gently wipe them off. Damaging the gaskets prevents the oven from sealing.

Lock your oven door manually if your model does not lock it automatically when you clean.

Open a window near the oven for ventilation. There is a certain amount of smoke when you clean the oven. The dirtier the oven is, the more smoke is created.

Turn the control on your oven to "clean" and set the timer for 2 to 5 hours depending on how dirty your oven is, and what the manufacturer recommends.

Wait for the cleaning to finish and the oven to cool before opening door. When oven is fully cooled wipe up any ash inside. If your oven is not completely clean, next time set the timer for longer. If your oven is spotless you might want to see if you can get away with a shorter cleaning time.

Tips & Warnings

Because self cleaning ovens are better insulated, they are more energy efficient when used for cooking. However, if you run the self cleaning feature on your oven more than once a month, you offset the savings you realized. With light to moderate use your oven should be able to be cleaned every one to three months.


Save on the electricity used with a self cleaning oven by cleaning the oven right after use at a high temperature. For example, if you set your oven to clean after making French fries at 450 degrees, it takes less energy to get the oven up to the required 900 degrees.


If you have pet birds, take them out of the house before cleaning your oven. Over heated cooking surfaces, oils and fats, can create fumes that are harmful for a bird's delicate respiratory system.

Hope it helped.

Has anyone had a problem with the inner glass on the Lamona oven door exploding. Mine just has! It's only 18 months old and hardly used. I wonder if it's the difference in temperature betweeen the hot oven...


We bought our kitchen from Howden's as well about 15 months ago. They installed a Lamona double oven and hob. Last night when opening the door to the bottom oven our glass on the inner door exploded as well. Maybe there was a batch of defective ovens as ours sounds as though they mat have been bought/manufactured at the same time.

Is it possible to transfer the 'self clean' ovens from an Elotrolux EKC 6047X to a Zannusi ZKC 6020W? The Zannusi is 16mths old, and the Electrolux is 40 mths old. My wife would like self clean ovens,...


If by 'transfer the self clean' you mean just putting the oven liner panels from one oven to the other then maybe, but if you mean to transfer the high temperature clean cycle oven complete including wiring alterations then i would have to advise you NOT to do so on fire safety grounds as i'm sure it would invalidate any warranties and more importantly breach your home insurance conditions.

Thermador SC302 double oven the top oven is not getting hot


We've had the same problem. I contacted a local sales room and they contacted their rep who promptly mailed the replacement parts I requested (I'd looked up the part numbers already). Now I'm waiting to find someone who will reasonably do the work.

Overlay Panel bubbles up!


I had the same oven panel overlay bubbling problem on my GE oven purchased in 2008. It started peeling and bubbling within the 1 yr warranty, and GE sent me a replacement panel. This new part began bubbling again within 4 months. Again, I called but now they say it's out of warranty and they will not replace it. Obviously there's a manufacturing defect in this part. The panel looks terrible. It appears that GE no longer cares about the quality of their products.

Oven fan zannusi zbf360x


Remove rear panel in back of oven, there you will see the fan,remove fan blade,usually left hand thread, and remove screws that hold fan, if they are not accessable from inside the oven then you will have to remove oven from housing, and remove rear outer panel to access fan screws and connections.
Remove fan and replace in reverse order.,don't forget the nut that holds the fan is a left hand thread.
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks.
