    Is that the element that's at the top of the oven?

    Is there a way to test if it's functioning?

  • dylanjenkins May 09, 2009

    Cheers for the help so far.

    The main oven has 2 elements from what I can see, the bottom, which looks like it has never been used, measures 37ohms.

    The top element, has 2 separate elements within the same housing. The outer element measures 46.5ohms and the inner element measures 42.5ohms.

    Looks like these are all OK?

    Just wondering about the switch to the oven?

    The light comes on to show that the oven is on, but I'm wondering if it is actually switching the oven on?

    Oops, just seen another main element, which must be the oven element in front of the fan!! (It was covered, that's my excuse anyway!!) No reading at all. I tried to bell the element as well and this did nothing, but belled out on the other elements.

    No where can I get a new element from?

    You probably burned out an element.

There could be a few different things wrong. The element may have died. Is the fan you mention the forced air fan? No heat usually means blown fuse or faulty heating element, and since the small oven works I would suspect the the element has blown. You would benefit from getting an appliance serviceman to make a house call to replace the element. Unless you're handy and have a soldering iron, some heat resistant sleeving, and can access the back of the oven comfortably.

Hope this helps. Let me know.

    Yes there is. You will have to access the back of the oven so that you can get a resistance meters' probes across the posts of the oven element. The oven will need to be turned off, and diconnected from the supply so flick off any circuit breaker that feeds the oven.

    You're looking for a red or brown wire that is soldered onto the element post. You need to desolder this wire because it's wired in parallel with the main bottom element. Set your resistance meter to the low ohms scale. If your element is faulty you can prove it by placeing one probe on the post with the red wire and the other probe on the post with the blue or black wire (two posts may have been linked together, that's perfectly normal). A faulty element will show very high ohms. Test both the bottom and the top element.

    Let me know if this helps or if you need more explanation.

Fan and element not working

hi not sure if you've had a reply but when my zanussi main oven stopped working i just changed the element (purchased from e bay).
open oven door and the back you will see 4 screws(basically 4 corners) remove these screws and you will see the element, pretty straight forward to remove, obviously fan wont work until you have heat (hopefully fan ok) you can give this a go, cheaper than buying a new oven. i have done this twice. hope this helps.

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.

Hi Guys I have a Stoves 720EF Double Oven and Grill. Whilst halfway through cooking some sausages on the grill this evening, the grill suddenly stopped working (plus the LED for the grill knob showing...

If the element and the indicator light both stopped working this suggests a problem with the power supply for the grill control. Either the grill control has no power going to it or it is faulty and requires replacement. If you are not sure what you are doing you'd better get a tech. to look at it, it can be fairly complicated for the untrained person.

My oven is saying "stop" . Previously to this is was showing F02 and the fan wouldn't turn off. We turned the main switch for oven off and back on and it now says "stop"

Previous fault F02 is indicating an overheat fault- service manual says to replace main electronic control board. However, switching off at wall has reset the clock- you need to set the time before the oven will work-press middle button until small triangle is next to clock icon, set time using temperature dial. Once clock has ben set, try using oven to see if F02 fault reappears- sometimes switching off at wall will clear fault. Good luck!!

I have a cookmaster 100 dual fuel the clock has gone out and the fan oven has stopped working the other oven and the grill stil work ok

If the clock is not working, then that is the reason the main oven and fan are not working, as they go through the clock timer..
You need to get the clock working for the oven to work.

Hope this helps.

The main oven has stopped working, the fan comes on but it doesn't heat up. The top oven works fine. Any suggestions?

You need to fit a new fan oven element, located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover.
Hope this helps.

The main oven is not working, no fan or heat could this be a fuse? Stopped spontaneously, top oven and grill are working perfectly, only 2 years old. thank you

This sound like the heat element for the main oven is burnt out, replace the main heating element and this should correct the problem.
