What is the worst that could happen if an electric double oven ceramic hob had the neutral and earth mains power wired the wrong way round ?

Now wired right way round. Both Oven lights are on when ovens are turned off and only go out when ovens are on about quarter of a turn of there knobs, ceramic hobs not working at all, nor is timer. Fan of main oven stops when door is open but this could be normal !

suspect more than one problem. half grill not working may be due to half the element gone open circuit. the other problems could be due to an installation fault. many ovens have links in the connection box which have to be tightened down. this is often overlooked. look at the connection box or terminal strip to check. there is often a diagram of hoiw it should be done adjacent.

Sounds as if your oven heating element has failed. You need to fit a new one.

Usually you have to get the back off, disconnect the old element, remove the fixxing screws and element, fit new one, reconnect and it should be fixed. Don't forget to switch the power off before starting work.

Hob is tripping fuse box


If the hob is tripping the RCB or MCB on the consumer unit, there is a fault, usually in the elements or halogon heaters, you will need a multimeter to define but please ISOLATE FROM MAINS POWER BEFORE OPENING ANY PANEL
Some electrical knowledge would be helpful, check each element seperatly, you may have to carefuly disconect each heater on the hob, unless you know which blows the mcb, check all connectings to see thay are secure, work round the hab reostates, make sure there is no shorts to ground from elements, with temp control down at zero. Check wiring into mains as a loose connection will cause heat and mcb to trip.
If it is wired into the same outlet as an oven disconnect oven in case the other appliance is causing the problem. it is realy a question of eliminating causes one at a time, working round the affending appliance to define what is the cause.
Hope this is helpful

We are having a neff oven U15M62NOGB fitted. The wires in the booklet are earth on the left, live in the middle and neutral on the right. Is this correct as the neutral and live are the other way round on...


Yes, the installation instructions are correct. The wiring from your old oven isn't relevant.

Your query is a little confusing though. The new oven should have a power cable attached to it for connection to the mains supply. This should be on a separate circuit from your sockets and connected to an isolator switch. The wires in the power cable are colour coded to ensure that they are correctly polarised when connecting to the mains supply. I'm assuming you're in the UK as you list a GB model number, therefore, it should have a BROWN wire for LIVE, BLUE for NEUTRAL and GREEN/YELLOW for EARTH.

If your house wiring uses the old red (live) and black (neutral) colour coding, then you just need to ensure that the brown (live) wire from the oven lead is connected where the red wire from the supply is terminated. The blue (neutral) wire should be connected where the black wire is terminated and the green/yellow (earth) wire should be connected where the green wire is terminated.

Internally, the oven probably uses red cable for live and black for neutal, but you really shouldn't need to be doing anything with the internal wiring to install the oven.

You say you are having it fitted. Any competent installer would know (or check) the correct wiring order even if the instructions were missing. If you are installing it yourself, be sure are certain you understand what to do before attempting this and double-check the power for the oven circuit is off before you start.

Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks.

I have dropped a cup onto my ceramic Zanussi hob, is the slither of glass that came off able to be repaired ??


Hello,
Just to clarify something, is your hob above a double oven D2100-4 because that is only telling me about your oven the hob will have its own Mod. no. But any crack to the glass on any Hob can weaken the glass and really should not be used due to the weight of Pots on glass if the glass did break it could be quite dangerous with all the electrics below.
Hope this gives you some help in the matter.

Good Luck.

I have replaced a Kelvinator hob with a ceramic hob. It works but the owen is not working. What is the problem?


There are possibly a number of options. It could be that in wiring the hob in you have disturbed the wiring for the oven. Normally the oven works off the main oven control switch on the panel and the hob could be wired into something else.
Is the oven totally dead no power at all for everything, or is the clock running but the oven will not switch on?

Bottom oven not heating up Fan not working but hasnt worked4 ages


 Many thing can do this but, common things are....loose high voltage wire.....poor solder joint on board.....magnetron.....power relay..... also This most commonly is a bad door switch, other possible problems are a faulty relay or solder joint on the power module, but a bad door switch is most common.
