Eskom Reluctancy To Pay For Damages

Eskom caused a damage on my electric appliance to the value estimated to R 48 000-00 in Febraury 2013. All relevant quotations and information required was submitted. Further more, their investigation department conducted investigation on my connection if i did not forge electricity, tested appliances and took pictures of such damaged appliances. I was promised that the matter will be finalized within 42 days. To my surprise, its now six months and they only respond without truth as and when i enquire. Can I please be assisted.

The reason why you oven is tripping is because the oven element is most likely burnt out...

Frigidaire gas oven Oven control panel went blank. There is electricity to stove and oven.

sounds like the clock assy. is bad part 316557206 heat usually is the cause of this part to fail,people use the self clean the oven gets up to 1000 degrees and damages the clock assy. or a large pot was on top of the stove and the heat damaged it but whatever the cause was you need to change out the clock assy. if the touch pad is black you can reuse it if it's white for some reason it doesn't peel off without damaging the overlay get a putty knife and a hair dryer,heat up the overlay and peel it off with the putty knife,go here to see the parts
it looks like this only comes with the black overlay because it doesn't show any other colors so you can order the overlay or peel it off and save some bucks,go to the sight,put your model number in,go to backguard and look at parts 20 and 20a this is what you need,first i would check all the wires going to the clock assy. to make sure there isn't a broken wire.good luck

If you switch oven on it trips main power. what can cause that

Probably close to 50 things could cause that, but here are a few of the most common: Bare wire in a harness of the oven, causing a short-circuit in the line. Faulty plug on the power cord. Outlet in the wall is damaged. Loose wire in the outlet box, causing a dead short. Bad wire between the outlet box and the main breaker box. Weak breaker, or a breaker that isn't heavy enough to handle the load of the oven. (especially, if you just bought a new oven, it may need a larger breaker to handle start up.) Use a fused multi-meter (voltmeter) to check for these issues, and do not try to fix it if you are not familiar with electrical work. It could cause a fire, or give you a deadly shock.

How can I get my oven temperature to come on? A power outage caused the "lock" light to flash and no temp is appearing.

Are you sure that you have 220 volts to the oven. It is possible for a breaker to go bad and conduct power only on one leg and some things on the appliance will still work.
Electronic controls on ovens can be damaged by power surges caused by lightening strikes. That could be the problem but after looking at the circuit diagram of the panel it doesn't look like there are electronics that should be damaged by a surge.
Here is a link to the user manual.

After a lightning storm my bosch single 30" wall oven displayed an F03 err. I turned the power supply off at the breaker for one minute as directed by the oven's manual. This action did not...

Find out what the F03 error is for and then check out the appropriate area. If there was a strike of surge the most likely place to look for damage is the area where the electricity first enters into the device.

When you use self clean the 900 degree temperature damages the electronics. I do not advise using that feature. Get some oven cleaner and do it the old fashioned way. My opinion.
