Most likely one of the elements in the lower oven. For this job you will require basic tools and a multimeter to check the individual elements resistance.
This Must be done with the oven isolated from the mains supply Before beginning work.
remove the screws holding the element in place carefully pull a few CM's of cable through the holes in the oven bulkhead and disconnect the element from the supply cables.
With the element out check for short circuit and breakdown from Mains supply to earth. Using the multimeter on resistance setting check between the terminals and the outer casing there should be no connection here at all. any lower than 2M ohms is asking for trouble.
Check the heating elements by probing onto either end of the element and reading the result back as an example a 230V 2500W element should read around 21 Ohms. Elements are not repairable internally.

How does my hob cut out after it has been on for a while then when it cools down I can put it on again


It's possible that there's a connection which is affected by the heat, or there's a faulty thermal cutout.

Search online under "zanussi model***** faults" and see what turns up. Also contact zanussi helpdesk online.

GAS JETS BLOCKED IN OVEN


If there is only enough gas for the pilot, it is very likely the main gas ciontrol valve is either in need of replacement or the "hot wire" sensor is in the wrong place or broken.
Basically the hot wire determines if the pilot is lit before turning on the main gas supply valve. It is a safety feature to dissapoint the suicidal.

I suggest this is fitted by a gas engineer as a leak at the valve can be very dangerous.

The oven is not getting very hot, only gets to about 190 max, is this likely to be the thermostat?


this is duel feul... so the top is gas and the oven is electric
judging by that temp, i would say it is preheating on your broil element only
try checking your conections and continuty through the bake element

Seized screws in Stoves 'Range 1000G Gas Range Cooker (LPG)


I let the screws soak for a few days in release oil but with no success. I decided the only way to get the seized screws out was to drill and tap new holes through the hob and into the hob burner mixing tube support flanges. This allowed new screws (stainless as opposed to the standard, chrome plated steel screws) to be screwed into place. Once this was done I then drilled out the heads of the remaining seized screws. This allowed the hob tops to be removed so that the oven thermostats could be changed. The hob screws were then screwed back into place and lubricated with loads of high temp. copper grease to prevent corrosion. I will also remove and re-grease these screws every six months or so to prevent any chance of seizure in future!

A few points to remember: (a) make sure that any holes in the hob top are sealed with something such as a screw coated with high temp fire cement etc. to prevent any possibility of unburnt LPG getting into the space below the hob top. (b) make SURE that you do not drill or tap into anything that could damage the cooker and cause a gas leak or damage any of the gas ignition leads etc. (c) Make sure that the appliance is totally 'gas tight' after doing any work which will disturb the gas connections, and (d) If you don't have gas qualifications and are not sure of what you are doing then get an expert, registered gas engineer to do the work for you. Don't take a chance with gas!!

Zanussi Oven Fan ''Ringing''


Your fan blade is probably touching the metal shroud around it or the blade is loose. You can check this by gaining access to the fan and visually looking at it. Please do not do this with the unit plugged in, electricity kills. I hope this helps.

Zanussi zce 7690 main oven not heating up. everything else works.


Thought someone may find this helpful. We bought our Zanussi ZCG7690XN just 4 yrs ago. For nearly 2 yrs the main oven control stopped working. Never got round to replacing the timer controls- ~£80 or so. Read through some threads and thankfully found a few helpful. What I found difficult after accessing the control unit was recognising the correct wires to connect so as to isolate(over ride) the timer unit. Finally sorted this and presto it worked. The same process may help those who wish to replace their unit with a new one.
For those who will try, take safety precautions. If the spark generator works, there is likely power to the timer unit (and oven). If not check fuse, confirm mains supply.
The control unit is accessed first by unscrewing top oven front plates to gain enough room. Then with a flat screw or similar tool, take off the two small clock knobs and the two adjacent burner dials. you would then need to undo four little screws two on each of the burner dials. You can now gently extract the controls from below -can be tricky, (may or may not require using a plier to bend a bit of metal). With the unit out, turn it upside down and you would be looking at the rear of the circuit board with a blue wire, two brown wires connected to the relays and a red wire feeding back to the main oven dial(beside the spark generator). A green earthing is attached to the side . Leave this alone. All you need to do is to join the red wire to the nearby second brown(live)wire. I did this using connectors. Any other sensible means should be fine. The blue wiring returns to the light bulb and back with the others to electrics at the back. I took this off the timer as well.

I previously had recurrent problems with the grill spark unit connection- burnt off. Sorted this out by fixing the connection (access from the front top oven, unscrew a small metal protecting plate to reach it).
I do apologise if some find this too lengthy. Any questions are welcomed.

Fan oven door, cooker surround and hob become burining hot when using fan oven


Sounds like a problem to me. Check your oven door gasket to make sure it's intact and also that the oven door is closing completely when this overheating occurs. Although some heat will rise, it shouldn't become "burning hot".
