probable fault to earth of circular element - gets worse when element hot. you will need a megga to confirm this.

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

SOURCE: oven element tripped main fuse box switch

Try running it with the element disconnected, if it does not trip, then element is causing prob.
If it still trips, then look elsewere for prob,.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: Neff U1410 main oven trips the main RCD. Occurs

I have a u1421 with the same problem! I notice the fan doesnt run too well, sometimes it doesnt run at all, needs a prod to get it running. I suspect with no fan, that the element gets far too hot, and then starts to leak to earth, tripping the RCD. I'm gonna try buying a new fan motor - you should ckeck if your fan is running full speed OK.

Defy stove, when start heat up element it get warm but trip power after about 5min, what's rong?


Not sure of the cause but the signs are pointing to an overload. Check the power rating of the oven and the standard cabling of the house. They won't match! . Solution is to run a dedicated line for the oven - let a licensed electrician do that in compliance to your local regulation.

I bought a house with a Defy Gemini Petite Chef oven but it is not working. The oven flicker on Auto. How can I delete the Auto?


Most models won't work when on Auto. There are push buttons under the clock and one has a picture of a hand (Like a cop holding up his hand to say "Stop"). From left to right numbering the buttons 1-6, this is button 4 on your appliance. Press this button and it should go back to manual mode and allow you to use the oven.
You can download a manual for this appliance from here:
