Oven keeps tripping the electrics

We have a built in Zanussi oven, when you witch the oven it seems fine but once it has warmed up a little it trips the electrics.

Any ideas what could be causing this, is it fixable or do we need a new cooker?

Thank you for any help you can give.

    I turned my zanussi built in oven on earlier and it was on for about ten minutes before the electricity tripped. I turned the trip switch back on, and then turned my oven back on, it stayed working for a little while and now it's just totally given up, without tripping the electric a second time!!! Does anyone have a clue what's wrong? Thanks!

I would suspect that the fan oven element is faulty. what I think is happening , is as the element gets hotter, the insulation is breaking down and causing the trip to operate, it is quite a common problem
You will need to fit a new element.
If it is a fan assisisted oven you will find the element behind a removable cover at the rear of the oven compartment..

Oven tripping


Hello,
Was the oven tripping the the fuse before the element was replaced,also did you take the oven out to do element because the element can be done with cooker in place it may be that you pulled out the connections block at rear of unit and it is touching body.If tripping before replacement the fault could be any where on the oven.You will have to check it through.

Zaunssi ZBF360X built in Oven Not Heating


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

Zanussi zbf260x built-in oven keeps tripping out


Probably due to a fault on the oven heating element. Check continuity and earth with a multimeter if you can but it's odds on you will need a new heating element.

Intermittent tripping of circuit as oven just reaches temp


Sounds like the oven element is cracked and absorbing moisture when the oven cools down thus causing it to trip. Should buy a new element. there are hundreds of suppliers on the internet.

Fan oven on zanussi electric cooker does not heat up


From symptons, I would say the fan oven element is faulty, more so if the fan is working. Remove inner rear panel of oven and see if element gets warm, let it run for a minute, switch off and feel if element is warm, if not, then replace.the element.
Plz rate this solution.
Thanks.
