Grill not working on a Bosch electric single oven HBN2850GB

Turned my grill on this morning, and within a minute the trip switch went. Turned it back on. The oven is working, and the grill appeared to be on. However it is not heating up. My manual has no advice on replacing parts, or very little on troubleshooting. Is this most likely to be the grill element? Should I just replace this? The manual says if a part is not working it is most likely to be a fuse or limiter. If it is a fuse would there be any power at all?

Hi, most likely to be a faulty element. If the fan is working and there's no heat, definitly is the element. If it tripped the mains, have a good look inside with a torch and should be able to spot either a burn mark, a hole or a bend on the element.
Cheers

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!

Using grill and everything tripped now grill or oven wont work


Electric grill most often uses heater element to heat up.Maybe your heater elemen is shorted to oven body thus tripping the safety device.
Check your grill system using insulation tester.If the insulation is low check the heater elemen insulation and if defective replace them.

Electrolux EOU5330X Ultrafan Electric Double Oven -


Sounds to me like the lower element shorted and tripped the breaker as it burned out. If you're handy at electrical troubleshooting that's where I'd start - comparing ohmmeter readings between the bad element and the one that works.

A wire short to the chassis would have a similar set of symptoms and be easier to find and fix.

Beyond that, you need a service tech.

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.

Hi can you help me my when i turn it on it reached temperature then triped. Reset the trip switch turned the oven on again and within couple of minuets it happened again. We turned it off and have not used...


Prob your cooling fan...it comes on to keep the appliance at a constant temp and if it doesnt it will trip out. Try turning on ur grill and you should hear the fan come on straight away, if not then you will need to replace it.

Hope that helps.

Can I change the grill element myself? I assumed it just plugged in at the rear and have removed the two screws holding element to top of oven. Now I wonder if the steel plate at the back is itself bolted...


The grill element is not usually a 'plug-in' device.

You will have to remove the back of the oven/grill and disconnect it from the back before you can withdraw it from the front.

Remember to switch off the power before removing the back.

Recently wired a double oven with isolator switch


Hi, there's definitely a electrical problem.
First, use the bottom oven only for about 15 minutes and check if it doesn't trip.
Second, use just the grill (top oven) for about 15 minutes and check if it doesn't trip.
The reason is sometimes grill elements are corroded and only trip after a few minutes.
Also, if both ovens work ok on their own, then it could be your fuse box not strong enough, or the isolator switch fuse be only 13amp. If your oven is more than 3Kw (check the label on the door for info) then you need a 30amp fuse to hold when both ovens are on.
Cheers
