Question about Zanussi ZCM900X Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range
The oven stopped working and tripped the fuses at the same time.
Thought problem was electric wire coming in contact with internal foil (there was some charing), but looks like it was the wire going to the grill.
Is it the element (after less than a year's use) or something else, and how do we find out other than calling in a repair man?
We also managed to break one of the little catches that enables you to get the door off.
Can anyone please help?
We are in the U.K., by the way
If you turn the oven on and set it to the highest temperature you will see a black coloured cover plate at the rear of the oven with holes in. Located beind this cover is the oven element. THis after a few minutes at most should be glowing red, the fan then circulates the heat so that the oven reaches the required temperature. IF this is not glowing then the element is blown. If your house fuses tripped this is also a fairly good sign that this is the element. Zanussin provide a spare element for £48.50 but take 7 - 10 days there is a man called element man on the web, he provides the same for £24.50 and delivered in a day. I have had two elements go on me in 6 years... hope this helps ....Jack

Tips for a great answer:
Hi - I understand that the burners work, however I would recommend verifying that a fuse is not blown or a circuit breaker tripped. Test the power outlet with a lamp, hair dryer, etc. Another question, does "Loc" appear in the display if any button is pushed? The Oven Lockout feature automatically locks the oven door, prevents the warmer drawer and most oven controls from being turned ON. If so, press and hold CLEAR/OFF for 3 seconds. Then a beep will sound and LOC will clear. The "DOOR LOCKED" will continue to flash until the oven door has completely unlocked. Does the clock display "Sd" or "dddd"? If so, the clock is in sales demo mode. Press and hold the "BAKE TIME" button for 6 seconds to exit sales demo mode. If this does not prove to be successful, contact a professional to have EOC diagnosed, confirm that there isn't a wiring failure or a faulty element.
