Question about Zanussi ZDQ895 Electric Double Oven

1 Answer

Why does my oven keep switching off?

My Zanussi electric oven (ZDQ895) keeps shutting off. Sometimes it switches itself off once during use, sometimes five times, sometimes it doesn't switch on at all. Sometimes it stays on with no problem. The problem has become more regular though.

Re: Why does my oven keep switching off?

There is a casing stat which senses overheat. this can be due to lack of ventilation if a built-in type or a fault with the fan

Zanussi double oven switches off during cooking. It can be restarted without a problem so fault can not be detected. It displayed error 3 message once.

The shutting down of the oven is due to a defective thermal switch or thermistor. Replacing the thermistor could fix the problem. It is usually located in the inside compartment of the oven and connected to the control panel board.

Ignition of the gaspoints is continiously on. Clicking noise keeps us awake. What can we do besides shutting off the current

I have the same problem sometimes.
Not ideal, but if I turn each ring on one at a time, and sometimes more than once for each ring, it usually stops clicking eventually.
An electrician once told me it was due to one of the knobs sticking if they are not cleaned enough, but my hob is hardly ever used so I don't think it's that. Might be worth taking the knobs off and checking though in case one of yours is sticking.

Fixing thermostat on oIder Hotpoint Double Oven

Hello, there is no fixing the thermostat although some of the older thermostats could be calibrated by using a very small flat head screwdriver in the shaft of the thermostat if there is no opening for a tiny screwdriver in the shaft then it cannot be calibrated. If you have to change the thermostat contact your local parts department have the model # handy if the original is not available ask about universal oven control replacement parts. Good Luck

Change oven thermostat

Not familiar with the brand - but there are two types of temperature sensors - i am assuming here that the person meant temperature sensor rather that a thermostat.
1 bulb type sensor
2 rtd type sensor (metal looking tube usually installed at back)
If its the bulb sensor - then there is a long tube from the bulb to the main dial on the front panel. All of this must be removed to change it. (power turned off) The knob on the dial removed and the front panel removed and the screws removed and the bulb threaded through - reverse to installed.

If its the rtd - then they are usually secured with two screws inside the oven (look inside to see) loosen those then pull the unit towards you the connecting wires should come through there should be a quick connector - (if under counter type) remove the old sensor and connect new one. Thread the wires back through the hole and secure the new sensor with screws - if the screws were damaged replace with only stainless screws

Zanussi electric oven.

The problem is usually a contactor or relay. The thermostat usually doesn't directly control the elements. Follow the wiring diagram or look at the wires from the thermostat. they usually go to a small box and then to the elements The contacts may sometimes stick or always stick. This part is a lot cheaper than the thermostat. Another problem is a burned out element. (Usually the bake element) This can short to ground and not let it turn off. When the elements are on they should glow evenly all over with no hot spots. Look at the broil element also. It is usually at least part way on during baking.

My oven keeps turning itself off

the oven may be trying to protect itself because of a faulty device that says "I'm too hot". As electric clothes dryers have a thermal high temp limit switch to protect them, look for this device (may be 1 inch round with 2 wires connected) and replace it
