Belling XOU252 (Broken Oven Element?)

My oven recently stopped working and I noticed that the fused in the house had tripped. It looks as though it may be a broken element. Although I have not misused this appliance, I am worried that my landlord will charge me for it (and rip me off). Does any body know what is likely to have caused the element to break and what fixing the oven would entail? Many thanks.

Open oven door, remove shelves and unscrew light cover. Remoe the 4 screws from the backplate, one in each corner and the element is behind the cover. Any electrcal shop should be able to get one for you

For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEOTUTORIALS 1, If the fan motor in the back of the oven is going round andthe temperature light is on (normally little red light), but there is no heatthen you will probably need a new oven element, these are generally very easyto fit and readily available from our website these can be tested with aelectric meter.
To gain access to the element you willhave to remove the back plate from inside the oven. Once removed you will seethe fan and element, if youlook closely at the element you willprobably see a small hole burnt in it where it has blown. Sometimes howeverthere is no evidence of a fault but the element is open circuit ie:broken inside the element casing, either way it will need replacing. Someelements will are fixed from inside the oven and some are held in place by nutsfrom the rear of the machine.

While on holiday, something tripped in the fuse box (meat juices from freezer, stank like hell). Oven looked at by electrician. The only thing on while we were away was the clock on the oven).
Would you believe it? It was a resistor on the clock that was too near the frame of the oven. When he tightened the oven back up into the housing it showed up on his meter. Loosen the screw and no movement on the meter. A slight tap with the hammer and a gap between the two has cured the problem. Could this be a fault in manufacture. Will try to SUE them for a new freezer as this one now STINKS from the thawed meat!

I had exactly the same problem with my XOU252WH. The solution was the same, but the repair slightly different: a) remove 2 screws from the plate covering the heating element and the fan inside the oven b) remove backside of oven with 4 screws at each corner c) remove heating element from behind (3 screws). d) order the part (I ordered it online over www.belling.co.uk (Menu Customer Care), the product number seems to be the same for all XOU252's. The part was delivered within 4 working days. e) plug colors at my oven were: top-brown, middle-earth, bottom-black. Marc

This tutorial will show you how to check your Smeg element and how to replace your Smeg 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 Smeg manual.
  2. If your 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.

MAIN HOUSE FUSES TRIPPED, RESET, OVEN AND GRILL WILL NOT HEAT UP


It would appear that the tripping of the switch has caused some kind of short within the cooker. I would look for the continuity of the heating element.

Most likely the wires leading to the heating element have burnt and will need replacement. If you are comfortable with attempting a DIY, well and good. You will have to open the back panel to access the said wires. It should be easy enough to identify..it will be the wire leadingto the heating coil.

If , however, you are not familiar with these kind of things, I would recommend getting a repair guy to do it for you.

Cheers and good luck with the repair!

How to diagnose, fit and change a Belling fan oven element




If your fan oven is not heating up properly the Fan Oven Element for your Cooker is usual culprit. Fitting an oven element is generally very easy, as demonstrated by The Apart4u video on How to change repair and replace your fan oven element:this fan oven element can usually be changed without taking the appliance out of situ.

Lower oven loss of power


I'd check the control switch first, and the wireing and connections.

Oven not producing any heat


just the oven? then more than likely the element. if the stove eyes are not working as well, then your looking more at a sensor, thermostat, fuse, breaker, etc. almost always an element though

When using the oven the electicity tripped; after resetting the breaker the oven does not appear to get hot; however the grill works, the light works and the fan works what could be the problem?


Sounds like the oven element has gone. When these elements go they often short against the outside casing of the element which is earthed (or should be). This trips the main trip switch in the house. Having tripped and cooled down, the element is now broken inside & won't heat up. Usually 2 screws to remove, either inside oven or outside at back. Element usually taken out thro oven. Take it & cooker info to your dealer & ask for replacement. Shouldn't cost much.

I have a hotpoint ew91 oven that stopped working after tripping house fuse. after resetting fuse fan works but no heat.


It is most likely that the oven heating element has failed which caused the house fuse to trip.

The replace the heating element will mean taking the back off the oven and removing the old heat element by undoing the fixing screws and the electrical connectors( normally this surrounds the fan assembly).

Fitting the new heat element should then be straight forward.

Remember to disconnect the power to the oven before removing the back.

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.
