I replaced my main oven element before christmas and was working fine until the weekend.
The oven heats up fine then after about 20 minutes the main fuse will blow and the orange thermostat light stays on.
Is this the main oven element at fault again or do I now need to replace the thermostat.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Disconnect the element, and run the oven for at least 30 mins,,if it does not blow fuse, then more than likely it is a faulty element.
What I cannot understand is that you say the thermostat light is on after the fues has blown? I would have thought that the light would be not be on, if the fuse has blown.
If after replacing fuse and the stat is in the off position, and the indicator light is on then indeed the stat is faulty.
Plz rate my solution.

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
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.
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.
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.
The fan element (round) is more than likely blown. Open the oven door, take the rear cover off inside the oven (covers the element) and have a look at the element with a torch.
If it is buckled, warped or has a blow hole in it, then it's faulty.
check fan element hasnt blown remove back plate in oven after switching off from mains of course and remove the retaining screws and you will see a fan and around that the element it will be obvious to see if its blown as there will be a hole on the casing if so replace and viola.
We have the same problem with our oven, AEG B2190-1.It started on on Christmas day[worst day of year]gets up to temperature after 10-15 minutes cuts out everything switches off until the oven has cooled down, The oven is only 18 months old. We have been told that it is a thermostat problem.
