Replaced oven heating element, now trips electric

I have a Candy Convex oven which with a problem. The grill worked and the oven light but no heat from the oven. Purchased new oven heating element, opened up oven and removed old emement. Element was badly distorted and split in one part so felt condifent this was the cuae of the fault. Fitted new element but when I turned on the oven, it tripped the circuit breaker. I tried again but it stayed on for about a minute and was heating ok, but then tripped the circuit breaker again. I thought I would smell burning coming from the oven also when I tested it. We took apart the oven several times ensuring that all wires were put back correctly and that no wires were trapped and that nothing was out of place but still has the same problem. Please can somebody point me in the right direction.
cheers

Disconnect the new heater and try it again , if it still trips then your problem is elsewhere, if it does not trip, then it points to the new element being faulty.
If it is fan assisted make sure the fan is running o/k.
Hope this helps.
Please leave feedback.
Thanks.

Heating elements in fan oven not working


This tutorial will show you how to check your Smeg element and how to replace your Smeg cooker element.
Here are the 3 main faults to look for in your oven or cooker that is not heating
  • 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 Smeg manual.
  • If your 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.
  • 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.

Oven not working - rest of appliance fine


It is most likely that the oven heating element has failed and will need to be replaced.

This not an overly expensive part to have replaced and should be much less than the cost of buying a new oven although you would need to compare actual costs in your area.

SMEG Oven won't heat up


This is late response but this fault is your fan element. You have two of them, if heating slower than usual, it is only one that has failed. When replacing one, it is recommended the other one be replaced. Tripping the circuit breaker is the symptom. These elements 2100 Watt each are anywhere between $70 to $110.
