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

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.

The oven was on and working..then the electric tripped and all power went off...after putting the switch back up on the fuse box everything on the oven started working but it does not get...


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.

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

Fan oven not heating, bosch hbn 202t


the fan oven element is separate from the grill element. the problem is that the circular element round the fan is blown. remove the back panel of the oven and you will see the element. replacement is easy. on most bosch, the element is removable from inside the oven but for some you have to remove the oven and take off the back casing
