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.
2, If your fanoven is getting warm but takes a very long time to cook or is burning the foodmore on one side than the other, then you need to check if your oven fan motor is working you willsee the blade turning fast if it is ok. if the element is heating but the fan motor is not blowing the heat into the oven thenyou need To replace the oven fan motor is a little moreexpensive and a bit more involved.
3. If you have the opposite problem ie: your oven is over heatingand burning everything then you will need to replace your oven thermostat
4, A quite common and easily overlooked answer is if your oven is not working at all ie: noheat and no fan then the chances are that someone has put the oven timer into AUTO mode,simply put oven back to MANUAL mode and all should be working again.

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

How do i take out the old cooker element on my belling xou252 cooker


If it is a fan assisted oven, then the element should be behind a removeable cover at the rear of the oven,
Be careful not to lose the wires behind the oven compartment.
Hope this helps.

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!

Oven wont work but clock still works


First make sure you didn't trip a breaker. You could have power for the electronics on one side of the 220V and that is why the clock still works. Turn off the breaker and then back on even if it looks on. If it does this again you have a sever problem that will require a service call. If the breaker is tripping it could be other than the oven and if so a new one will work ok unless itsin your wiring.

If this helps you please ratre me accordingly Good luck.

Belling XOU252 Single Oven Trips Fuses Repeatedly


Hi.
Probably a faulty element, if you feel competent enough, disconnect the feed to the elements in turn, this should eliminate the problem.

Good luck.
