Zanussi Electric Cooker and Hob don't work properly

Hi,
My fiancee's mom and dad bought a new Zanussi Electric Cooker and Hob from B&Q on sunday, and today had an electrician fit it.

However, only the two right hand side rings work and out of the two elements for the grill only the inner element works.

The dedicated line feeding the old cooker is about 20 years old, but the electrcian stated that it was still okay and was carrying the correct power to use again. He used a cable splitter box (black circular), with 250v 30amp stamped on the back. He drew two lines off this, one to the cooker and one to the hob. He then placed the splitter box on top of the cooker housing with tape then slotted the cooker into place. He signed off the receipt saying both appliances were tested even though they didn't work properly, and charged them £98 for 2 hours work.

My question is, why are they not working properly?

With my limited knowledge of electrics, surely the 30amp power cable would feed both appliances once split with ease, beings they only require 15 amps each to operate?! Help!

It will have nothing to do with the supply, although it does sound as though he could have done a better job. if the appliances are brand new get Zanussi out to it. shame on the guy for not checking that they worked as they should. hope this helps.

Hi ive purchased a zanussi gas hob & electric grill and oven my installer wanted to knw what amp and wire to use to connect the oven nothing is stated in the manual model no ZOF35511XK


The necessary data for your installer is on
the rating plate. The rating plate is on the back side on oven and on the bottom side on hob. Never remove
the rating plate from the appliance cavity.
Make sure that the electrical information on
the rating plate agrees with the power
supply. If not, contact an electrician

All electrical connections should be made by
a qualified electrician.
The appliance must be earthed.

Total electrical output


Bad news really, the supply cable you have there is not going to be capable of supply to any type of electric oven and hob like you listed above. Your supply cable is possibly only 2.5mm in size, and not the required 6mm with a much higher MCB at the fuseboard. Get a registered electrician to run a new cable from the board to your cooking area. A single oven takes about 3.2Kw adding the hob rings will take way over your limit. Curry's listing of that cooker as a load of .75Kw or thereabouts is obviously incorrect.

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.
