Hi, I have a Neff Double Oven (U1721N0GB/02). In the process of replacing the main oven element (which was clearly visibly faulty) I think I may have casued a short-sircuit / blown an in-line fuse. I have...

Did you replace the element from inside the oven cavity? If so, you may have knock off one of the spade connections whilst pulling the bracket through. Isolate from mains, remove back panel behind oven (not in the cavity) and check you don't have a wire floating about. The wires usually look quite similar but if you look closing they should have a black or red fleck in them, the element has two prongs on each side, you need to put the two the same colour on one side and the other single different colour on the other prong. If the fan is working then you have not blown the limiter that you will see quite close to the fan, but you might have blown the thermostat or the selector switch. If the red light comes on the fascia when you select the temp then it's pretty safe to assume the thermostat is ok. Hope this helps

I have removed the element from my technika fan forced wall oven. Not sure which wire is the earth ? There are 3 wires. onehas two wires running to the terminal clip and the other two are single...


Simple the colour of the wire will give you the direction of their function what you need to know are the color of the wire.

However, if there is red wire among the two wires or( white or yellow) the white means and the red means power.

Good luck and then make sure that all electric power are disconnected .

Thanks for using fixya.

I've plulled the element out and the connectors have come off not sure which colour goes on which connection. also there are two prongs on each connector and only one clip for each side?


it dosn't matter what colour goes where as such. just make sure the earth wire ( if there is one), usually green and yellow in colour goes in the middle. otherwise as long as live and neutral connected in any order it will work.

also there may be two prongs but if you look closely they are really as one.

Is it a Green wire with Yellow strips that would be the ground or (earth) would go on the round plug or the center wire if you have a flat cord. The Red can be L1 or L2 The Black can be which ever one is left over L1 or L2 Both the Black and Red wires will be HOT to make up 240 Volts.

There are 3 possibilities:

Faulty thermostat
Faulty wiring
Faulty oven control switch

Thermostats fail more often in the closed position which means your oven will overheat so I'd test the wiring first. You'll need an Ohm meter to do this. TURN THE POWER OFF FIRST, expose the element and switch then trace the wires from the live and neutral terminals on the element back to the switch. If you can't trace them, make a note of their colours (at the element end) and test for continuity/resistance with wires of the same diameter and colour at the switch. You should get a reading of zero ohms if you have good continuity.

The easiest way to check the switch is visually. Make a note of the wiring colours and their positions on the switch terminals, disconnect them and remove the switch. See if anything looks broken or the

Some thermostats can be disassembled and inspected, but I don't recommend it unless you know what you're doing. The gap between the thermostat switch contacts needs to be precise or the oven wont heat to the correct temperate.

If you can establish that the wiring and switch are OK, try replacing the thermostat.
