Question about AEG U3100-4 Electric Double Oven

Open Question

Oven trips RCD

I've changed the bottom oven element but it lasted for around 15mins and trips the house RCD, this has been deteriorating over the past few years I've replaced the element a number of times but never straight away. Could this be anything else loose element clips when it heats up?

SOURCE: Main oven problem

I suspect not the oven element at fault. you only way forward is to actually test the resistance of the element to earth with a megga if you can beg the use of one. be cautious about the result as on occasion, elements are only faulty to earth when hot. another way to test if you are cdarefull, is to connect the element to mains independently of the oven and see if the rcd trips

The elements in ovens consist of an outer earthed metal tube and an inner resistive element that is insulated from the outer tube by what is effectively a compressed ceramic insulating powder. If the element is not used for a while, enough atmospheric moisture, (or from spills, etc), can penetrate the insulation to cause enough earth leakage to trip the RCD. If the RCD is tripping at the correct level, (They can get too sensitive - see this article here:
Diagnosing RCD earth leakage breaker nuisance trips), then the only long term solution is to replace the element, although they can sometimes be dried out by heating them.

Kenmore duel fuel oven wont heat


I take it this will be an electric oven. If so the likely hood is that the oven element has blown and will need replacing. Normally when elements short they will trip the houses RCD (once only normally)

Keeps tripping out rcd 63 amps when warming up after about 10 minutes


If your oven is rated above 14kw then change the RCD to 80A. But if its rated less than this then please check shorted element and change them

Not heating up


Hi.

I suspect you may have a faulty oven element, which is breaking down as it gets hotter, disconnect element and try if ,if it does not trip, then element is faulty
