Question about Zanussi Ovens

1 Answer

I have a Zanussi ZTE 285 dryer which runs for 30 seconds and stops, the time to run will go to 0.

I tried to swap the door to open on the other side but stopped when it came to switching over the latch due to internal electrical connection so I replaced the door as was.

I'd get a tech in there to fix your door, since that probably messed up the timer internally.

SOURCE: zanussi electric double oven. Top oven not working.

It sounds like a faulty thermostat, because when you turn the thermostat on it should supply the oven element and the neon light, so even if the element is faulty, the neon light should still come on regardless of the element working or not.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: the inner glass door on my zanussi oven has come

You should be able to repair your existing door. Have a look around the perimeter of the door to see if there are any screws, particularly near the handle. You are looking to take the front fascia off the door, so that you can access the inside. Most doors have the front fascia held on by small brackets glued to the back of the glass that clip on to a fixing on the internal door. The top of the fascia is normally held in place by the handle. Once you have the front of the door off you can retrieve the piece of glass that has fallen out. You will almost certainly find that the glass has come away from the adhesive that was used to hold it in place. You will need to clean up the glass and the metal door and re-stick the glass using a high temperature oven door glue

SOURCE: replaced control panel on whirlpool electric

The E1- F5 error is a door lock error.

The control (TIMER) has likely failed in this instance - BUT...

Sometimes when you disconnect power to a range and reconnect it the electronic range control gets confused.
You should disconnect power again for 15 seconds and reconnect and see if that helps.

If it doesn't cure the E1- F5 error hold the bake button in until E0- F2 appears in the display.
This is the error for a stuck button on the keypad and is the way to clear the memory of the electronic range control.

Sometimes these work, but if the control has failed it won't make any difference.

What does error code F-90 mean on a Kenmore delf cleaning wall oven

The F90 error code indicates that the door unlock time exceeded. This will happen if the lock is in the locked position with the oven door open or if the lock motor fails. Have someone hold in the oven door light switch while you set the control up for the self-cleaning cycle. Let the self-cleaning cycle run for only 4-5 minutes then press stop/cancel. This should allow the lock assembly to reset & retract the door lock back into the unlocked position.

You can also try resetting the appliance by disconnecting it from the outlet or switch off the circuit breaker for 20-30 minutes. Once power is restored run a test cycle. If this does not work I suspect a door lock assembly failure. This type of diagnosing will require accessing the lock assembly & using a volt/ohm meter for testing

How do I fix an oven lock on a self cleaning Kenmore built in dual ovens? The oven locked up during a clean oven cycle and will not unlock.

Some ovens will not open unless the clean button or knob is set to Clean. Make sure you are trying to open in correct direction. Try turning it on and off and press down on the latch while trying to open. I would not use a crow bar, this can be done. If you unplug it and wait for it to reset after about 30 seconds it might let go. Just keep playing mine stuck once and it was because I flipped the clean switch off an turning it back on ready to start the cycle pulled back on it and it opened. Oh I remember my neighbor had a older style dial clock and she set the clock for a certain time to stop and the door would not open until she ran the clock to that time spot. Hope this helps. I wish I knew how to open it from the electrical side but I dont.

My tappen gas range oven locked up and I cannot open the dooI put theoven on to clean, low, it came on and locked up but won't work any more how can I open the door to get my skillits and range top parts...

First, you can try a power-cycle. Unplug or turn off at the circuit breaker for 30-seconds or so. It may reset itself. If not, the lock motor may have stopped functioning and the door will need to be released manually. The lock arm is in the center of the door near the top. Use a piece of stiff wire bent at 90-degrees to give approximately 4 inches that can be slid behind the door at the right side and drawn across toward the left side. With the "crook" hanging down behind the top of the door you should be able to snag the arm. Push gently in on the door while maintaining tension on the wire toward the left. Release the door when you feel the arm move and the door should open.

After running self cleaning cycle cannot open door...

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
The Range has to cool down before the door can be opened due to the safety interlock thermostats. If you just ran the self-clean cycle unplug it (or turn off the Circuit breaker) and let it sit for 2 hours and then try to open the door by pressing the stop/cancel button for more than 3 seconds.
IF this does not work just respond here and I will pass the instructions of how to manually open the door. There will also be troubleshooting required to determine WHY the dook lock is not functioning.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

The oven light stopped working so i replaced it but it still does not work although the oven works, I have tried opening and shutting the door a few times but this does not work either

I would first of all try another bulb, if that does not work, then could be a faulty door switch, or bad contacts in bulb holder.
If you can access it, then disconnect the 2 wires going to the door switch and join them together, this will prove if the door switch is faulty, or if there is some other fault.

I need to clean between glass plate and oven door on my Zanussi electric cooker. I have drips where I've wiped the door over, also there is dust in between. Model ZBF 360W, Serial 61705615, Prod. No....


The following worked on my zbf360x built in Zanussi.
First you need to remove the oven door. To do this open the door half way. On each hinge there are two small metal flaps. Lift both of these. Now with the door still half open pull hard on the door. You will find the hinges spring and if you release the pull now it will just spring back. When the hinges spring give an extra hard pull on one side and then the other each hinge should pop out.
Once you have the door off just remove the small screws on the bottom of the door to allow it to hinge open and clean the inside glass.

Hope this helps,

Oven door zbf360x zanussi

Open the door half way, grasp it firmly and pull as hard as required using a slight side to side motion to release the hinges which are attached to the door.

There are then to nuts on the bottom of the door which when removed allows you to split the door in half.

The hinges have a little lever on them such that they can be jammed open against the door. Once the hinge hook is in the oven housing simply turn the latch the other way, stand back and have a beer.
