To be certain the element is o/k , you need to test it with a meter.
The fact that it looks o/k proves nothing. If you know how to use a meter, then remove element from oven, and with the meter set on the continuity range, test across the terminals of the heater, if you get fsd, ( full scale deflectoin) then the element should be o/k.
If no deflection , then element is no good.
If in doubt, remove the wires from the element , and try the oven, if it does not trip, then it proves element faulty.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Main oven causes trip switch to trip out when `I turn the dial to switch on. Top oven is fine.


Likely the element is shorted in the main oven. The Calrod elements short usually at the bends and if the breaker doesn't trip they burn a hole in them and arc. You can USUALLY see a different discoloration at teh failure point. Check both upper and lower elements as preheat probably uses both. Use a dental mirror if necessary to see under and over. Use bright light.

Main oven trips electric when switched on top oven works fine also grill . did notice that fan was making a noise


If the fuse or circuit breaker is tripping it is most likely a short circuit in the oven element.

Hotpoint oven bu72 gave out loud bang when cooking dinner and blew trip, reset trip and whilst top oven and grill work we cannot get any heat from main bottom oven


Sounds like the element has internally shorted to earth and will have to be replaced by a qualified Techo.
While this may have caused a fright...think how lucky you are that the Safety Switch was invented as a fail safe lifesaver!

Recently wired a double oven with isolator switch


Hi, there's definitely a electrical problem.
First, use the bottom oven only for about 15 minutes and check if it doesn't trip.
Second, use just the grill (top oven) for about 15 minutes and check if it doesn't trip.
The reason is sometimes grill elements are corroded and only trip after a few minutes.
Also, if both ovens work ok on their own, then it could be your fuse box not strong enough, or the isolator switch fuse be only 13amp. If your oven is more than 3Kw (check the label on the door for info) then you need a 30amp fuse to hold when both ovens are on.
Cheers

You need something thin and strong to slide underneath the screw head. Then turn slowly while lifting the screw head. The thread should catch and the screw should back out.
