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?

Re: zanussi zbf 760 (9 yrs old now)
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
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.
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.
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.

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
Hi intial problem will probably be a faulty heating element locatated behind the panel at the back. the zbf260 has no clock but if its a zbf 360 set the clock before the oven will function. otherwise the fault has damaged another component on the oven. which can be in order of most likley.fuse if on 13a supply/ thermostat/ selectorswitch/ thermal cutout/jw
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
That seal you should be able to order from any appliance spares supplier the Zannussi part number is. 3577252020. cost in euros. € 10.20 + vat.If it is the one I think it is then it is not easy to fit.The screws around the whole front panel have to be slackened off and the front prised forward dont take off fully pull old one off the new one has to be pushed in behind lip then fix all screws.may be easier with door off.
Hope I helped.
Hi this is propably too late now but we moved in to our new house six months ago and have a Zanussi ZBF 360 oven, and had no idea how to set the timer / clock. After fiddling around with the oven clock for the last 6 months i managed to set the clock. It shouldn't be much different to the one you have. Hope this helps you and others in the future.
Click the middle button until the little red things on the screen moved round to the clock symbol, then press + or - to get to the correct time, once you have done this it will flash for a few seconds then it will stop flashing and the clock is set. The same goes for the timer to set it when you want to cook something for a period of time eg: ten mins.
As for getting the oven timer to turn it's self on and off I am still messing with it and when i have mastered it I will let people know.
