Tricity bendix se211 electric cooker trips all my electrics

I have lived in my hosuing associaition rented flat for nearly 4 years and in that time this has never happened before until last weekend when i was cooking dinner, the oven had been on for 15 mins when suddenly everything electric in the whole flat switched off, including bedroom t.v's, lights, telephone, cooker, everything! we then dicovered its when we press the red oven 'on' switch on the kitchen wall is when this happens. its now been happening everytime we switch the oven on but it doesnt trip straight away, the oven will work for the first 3mins-15 ins then everything will suddenly trip.
i rang my housing associaition for them to send out an electrician but they said they dont usually do that for cookers as its not their problem as its my oven, they will only come out if theres a problem with the electrics in the flat and if they do send one out and find out its due to a problem with my cooker then i will hve to pay £100 call out fee.
my bf's dad came round and cant see a problem with the cooker bu said it could be an element gone.
im puzzled as i bought the oven brand new 3 years ago from comet, its a tricity bendix se211x electric cooker with built in grill and the 4 rings on the top, and its only used once or twice a week.
shall i keep the appointment with the electrician for tomorrow (if its the electrics, not my oven thats the problem) or shall i buy a new oven?

The symptoms you describe are a classic example of an oven element heating up, and as it gets hotter, the insulation is breaking down, thereby causing the earth leakage trip to operate.
To confirm this , switch on the oven, and turn all 4 rings on the top to full heat, 2 at a time, let them stay on for at least 10-15 mins, and if it does not trip, then you can be pretty sure it is the oven element(s) that is the problem

It is not likely to be the wall switch, as if it were faulty, i would expect the trip to go right away.
If you want to check further, then turn on the oven again and see if it trips, if it does ,then it is definately the oven element(s) that is the problem.

If it is a fan assisted oven , the element is at the rear of the oven, and possibly one under the base ot the oven. If it is a conventional convection oven, then there is an element at each side of the oven, even if one is faulty, replace both.

Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

My grill in my Tricity Bendix cooker is not working?


ISOLATE THE MAINS VOLTAGE TO THE COOKER AND GRILL, if it has a plug unplug it.
There is a regulator on the switch, you will need a tester, if this is working and continuity through the switch reducing as you increase or rotate the switch, that's working. Go to the back top a regulator is attached to the chassis of the cooker inspect for exterior damage, if not check continuity it should only conduct in one direction, and not to the chassis, if it is conducting in all , or opposite directions replace the component. You should be able to collect one from a small electrical repair shop.
Hope this is helpful.

Fan oven stopped heating


Hello,
Is the fan working in the oven if not then check if the clock needs resetting.If the fan is working then it is more likely that the ring element around the fan has failed.Check also if the thermostat light comes on,this is an indication it may be ok.

Hope this helps.

Every time i switch on electric in house trips off


This is most likely an electrical fault in the oven (or switch). As it is potentially dangerous - have it tested before using again.
The RCD trips out because an earth fault has occurred If it did not, the entire cooker may have become live- so it saved your life really.

It may not be as serious as this - when heating elements fail, they can short to ground -(the outside case of the element)
If this is the case - only one element will be at fault.
Test by switching on one element at a time - untill it trips again. In this case - replace that element.

Tricity Bendix SIE504W oven overheating


I have had a similar problem in that the top oven was overheating getting hotter and hotter and have just got a replacement thermostat from Partmaster.co.uk. This is to fit a Tricity Bendix from Currys model number DSIE520 GR. The new one seems just like yours in that it has three lettered connectors A,B and C. With the part came a sheet stating that for a free standing appliance with NO timer (this what my cooker is) the connections to be made are : 2 on old part to A on new; F on old to B on new; G/H on old to C on new and the link from G/H and 6 on old to be removed or "severed". I haven't yet done this as its in my cottage which I'm going to this weekend. Good luck! James

Cooker


HI THERE SKI IS THE GLASS DOOR PANEL THE INSIDE DOOR GLASS OR THE OUTER DOOR GLASS PANEL AND IS IT THE MAIN OR TOP OVEN.

THE GLASS PANELS INTERNALLY ARE HEAT BONDED IN THE FACTORY AND CANNOT BE REPAIRED YOU WILL NEED A NEW DOOR GLASS.
IF INTERNAL ONE COME AWAY THEN U WILL HAVE TO HAVE A COMPLETE INNER PANEL.
