SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Oven keeps tripping the electrics

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..
Plz rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Oven will not heat up


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 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.
