Question about Zanussi ZBF360 Electric Single Oven

2 Answers

Zanussi zbf 760 (9 yrs old now)

My oven wont heat up fully, when set to max the ready light goes out after about 5 mins and the oven is nowhere near full temp. I replaced the main oven thermostat that comes from the oven to the temp control dial but it still only heats as before. I dont know what else could be stopping the oven from heating properly as i assume the thermostat is what is cycling the oven heating on and off. If this were a heating element problem surely it simply just would not work at all?

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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

When I light my oven, it stays on full all the time. Is it the thermostate

I'd recommend buying an oven temp dial to stick in your oven to verify the actual temp. Then you can turn on the oven using a lower setting and write down the temp for the setting. Then as you slowly adjust the setting higher and higher, note each temp. If it doesn't show a consistent increase of temp for each setting, you may need it calibrated or replaced. Good luck!

Diplomat ADP 5520 Stainless Steel Range not getting hot enough

The circular element that the fan sits behind heats the oven. Ensure the thermocouple is back in the right place. Too near the element and the oven will stay cool.
Circular elements can be pricey and fitting should cost no more than an hours labour.

Zanussi oven zbf 360 + bulb blows repeatedly

bulbs blow from incorrect voltage in use or loose ground wires ( arcing out)
if they fail while the oven is on it is because the bulb construction glass is wrong
bulbs used in ovens need a special heated treated glass and are generally only available from the service agent
failing immediately on turning on indicates a bigger problem that the bulb so call in an electrician to test the system

How do I replace the bottom oven element in a CDA CD 907 double oven

Remove the back of the oven check temp controller before replacing or buying element, as this can often stop any heat being produced. The element is in front of the fan, if this model is fan assisted, remove fan, after removing element inspect to see any small hole in metal, if you see a large hole more than 10mm , this could be a sign that the fan needs cleaning. Clean fan with WD40, do not switch oven on untill fan has dried off. Then replace element, switch oven on low with door open, if you feel slight heat, go for a full test, gradually build up heat, keep on for at least 30 mins, make sure the oven reaches temp, you can expect some smell from a new element, this is protective oil, and considered normal.

Hello, I am having trouble with my built in Zanussi ZBF 360. When I turn the oven on to the fan symbol the 'on' light comes on and when I turn to the required temperature the heating light also appears. ...

If you cannot hear the fan going, then it is possible the fan is faulty, and the element has probably failed as well.
Both these components can be accessed by removing the panel at the rear of the oven compartment
